Chanel‘s Les Contrastes de Chanel Collection for Fall 2010 literally burned a massive hole in my wallet. I didn’t expect myself to go all out for this collection. Neither did I expect myself to love this collection so much. This is probably the biggest Chanel collection I have ever gotten so far.
If you have been following my blog for a while or know me in person, you know I have a weakness for grays, mauves, taupes and nude pink or coral lip colours.
When I saw this collection coming, I knew I am in trouble.
First thing that seduced me was the Nail Vernis in Paradoxal 509, S$35. It looks very purple in all Chanel’s promotional visuals, have no idea why. It looks very purple in its bottle too but I know it’s not. I believe the model above is wearing the nail colour and it’s absolutely gorgeous.
My camera didn’t capture it well either, it looks completely different.
The blushes are real beauties. Every time I visit a Chanel counter, blushes are the last thing I will look at, or not even bother looking at. These limited edition baked Powder Blushes, S$63 each,are delicious. I got them in Pink Explosion and Rose Temptation.
The MA mentioned that these babies are unbreakable. I laughed and replied, “who would wanna throw such expensive and pretty things on the floor?” She looked at me and said “we did, we threw them as hard as we possibly can during training and it doesn’t break.”
“oh okay,” I paused. Thinking in my heart, I will never do that – although for a second I was wondering if I should try.
One more Rouge Coco in Chintz, S$44,for me. I really like Rouge Coco’s non-drying and hydrating formula. I added 2 Glossimer in Petit Peche and Coral Love, S$38 each.
Les 4 Ombres in Enigma, S$83. I have been waiting for such a long time for this. Ever since I saw them, I knew I must have them. Can’t wait to play around with it.
Lastly, it’s my favourite all time eyeliner – Stylo Yeux Waterproof and I got it in Cassis, S$35. The formula glides on lids very smoothly and it stays on without smudging for the longest time. If you are looking for a long-lasting and smudge-proof eyeliner, try the Stylo Yeux Waterproof.
My first Soft Touch Eyeshadow, S$46, by Chanel. I liked Taupe Grise but Enigma has similar shade so I went for Vert Khaki instead. It’s a beautiful dirty olive-green.
That’s it from Chanel Fall 2010 Makeup Collection which left me pretty broke but a happy lady with all the makeup in my bag last week.
Did you get anything from this collection?
Do you think you will be?
I would recommend checking out the blushes as they are limited edition and worth a swatch. If you are thinking of getting something from this collection, go for the eyeliner or single eyeshadow. The eyeshadow quad can probably wait as it’s permanent.
The lip glosses are pretty too, I am not sure if they are permanent or not.
