CHANEL Fall 2008 Makeup Collection.

I cannot believe that I am getting information on Fall Collections already! I don't think I have even discovered and dished about all of the Summer collections yet. But if there is one to be the first to show this year, this Fall collection from CHANEL is it!


Introducing the CHANEL Fall 2008 Makeup Collection.

For his premiere collection, Peter Philips, the new Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, took inspiration from Mademoiselle Chanel’s legendary apartment on Rue There, decorative elements with rich, reflective surfaces – among them, an elegant mirror luxuriously framed in gold – ignited Philips’s imagination. The result: An exquisite colour collection of shimmering tones designed to warm and flatter skin. Glowing with luminosity, eyes, cheeks and lips are mesmerizing.

This sheer whisper of finely milled golden powder brings a delicate sheer glow to the complexion, gently illuminating the curve of the cheek or bringing subtle allover radiance to the face.

(limited edition)
A flash of colour — the look of 18-karat gold — delivers a precious new way for nails to shine this fall. With unique pigments and the finest sparkles, a brilliant golden lacquer extends the luxurious effects of this chic shade right down to the fingertips.

I wonder if there is a waiting list for this nail colour yet? I only ask because I will be needing one.



The lip collection expands with a selection of rich, luxurious shades. ROUGE HYDRABASE Creme Lipstick arrives in Simply Pink, a coral pink; Fantastic Plum, a deep purple; and Great Copper, a flattering bronze; while the iconic

ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Satin Lip Colour introduces Enthusiast, a rich coral red. For a sheer finish, AQUALUMIÈRE Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF 15 now comes in Formentera , a beige rose, and Papeete , a sheer cranberry. A glossy finish is achieved with the cult-favorite LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES Glossimer in three new shades: Amberlight , a glossy bronze, Delight, a sheer lilac, and Gold Light, a shimmery gold. LE CRAYON LÈVRES Precision Lip Definer arrives in Pretty Pink, a flattering pink.

The latest LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow is Reflets d’Ombre , a sensuous palette of coffee, ivory, dark green, and gold shadows. Take eyes to the height of seduction with two new OMBRE ESSENTIELLE Soft Touch Eyeshadows : Le Bronze, a metallic brown, and Bois Bleu, a dark teal. IRRÉELLE DUO Silky Eyeshadow Duo in Cristal-Dusk contains a flattering combination of white and brown. Finally, make eyes pop with the new LE CRAYON YEUX Precision Eye Definer in Denim, a grey blue.

For the perfect touch of warmth, apply JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in Rose Dust, a rose plum shade, to cheeks. Skin looks soft and luminous with POUDRE DOUCE in Almond, a subtly radiant beige

Polish off this sexy palette with two new shades of LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Kaléidoscope , a shiny green-gold, and Fantastic, a deep wine.

The CHANEL Fall collection will be available at department and speciality stores, as well as on in July.

Currently Obsessed...

graphic_currently_obsessed.jpgHere are just a few of my most current obsessions. Like a school girl and her latest crush, my obsessions change on a weekly (sometimes more, sometimes less) basis.

As I have had little time for makeup or much anything else, I am obsessing more with skin care, sun care, and hair care at the moment.

Cutler Specialist Fly-Away Control Stick -  This is an actual stick, somewhat like a deodorant tube, that I gently glide over my frizziest hairs. It sureolay_thermal_pedicure.jpg comes in handy when the humidity strikes. I wish they made a tiny tube in chapstick size to throw in my handbag.

Olay Body Thermal Pedicure Foot Treatment - This rough treatment lotion heats as it massages the skin to instantly relax the feet. This is divine and I swear I am becoming addicted to using it, as I have been rubbing my feet with it at the end of most days. For around $8, this is an everyday treat with the tube lasting almost a month.

arbonne_wrinkle_filler.jpg Arbonne NutriMinC® RE9® REtaliate Wrinkle Filler - This wrinkle filler not only seems to "spackle" in the lines (ahem, wrinkles), it seems to almost soften and relax them. It is perfect used alone, which a lot of the fillers cannot be, or used both under or over makeup. The click-pen is great and definitely comes in handy making for on the go touch-ups easy.

Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Hazelnut - This soothing balm, that looks like a gloss squeezes out of a tube to cover lips on their own or over lipstick. Currently, I am obsessed with this Superbalm on it's own as it gives off the most delicate champagne shimmer to my lips. Hazelnut is a new shade out for Summer, and this one will be spending a lot of time on my lips.

Xen-Tan Deep Bronze Sunless Tanning Lotion - For an almost instant tan that lasts the better part of a week, I think I will continue to be obsessed with this self-tanner for most of the Summer. I only use this lotion on my legs as I am too much of a faux-tan control freak on the other parts of my body, but the color payoff is awesome with just one application that really lasts a week.

It has been a few weeks since MAC launched it latest collection and newest product, but they are back now with more and these beautiful collections look better than ever. I cannot wait to get my hands on some of these beauties!

"Lava-licious! The power of Volcanic Ash brought into one dynamic all-black element, Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. Mineral-rich. Cleanses, exfoliates, makes skin look radiant. Its glowing compliment: new Prep + Prime Microfine Lip Refinisher."

Solar Field


"Alternate sun power. Glamour beams across the universe via new Solar Bits: free-formed clusters of rich pigment and pearl. Its full-volt complement: skin made provocatively golden through Bronzing Powder in Solar Riche and Refined Golden."

Neo Sci-Fi 


"Spinning glamour into another orbit: our magnetic field of hot fluorescents, modern buffs, beiges and flesh tones are destined to test the laws of your style gravity. With these supersonic shades and neon orange compacts, go shock the galaxy!"

They are all so summery, don't you think? I love the colors - not sure which ones will work best on me, but I cannot wait to find out. The bright orange packaging of the Sci-Fi Collection is collector worthy, as you never see bright orange making it's way into cosmetic packaging that very often. Beautiful!
