Spring Product Must Haves

Spring-Product-Must-HavesCHANEL Anti-Pollution Sunscreen SPF 50 ($55/1oz @ – wrinkles are not sexy so be sure to apply a good one that protects from both UVA and UVB rays. And the formula totally disappears when you apply it so no yucky white residue leftover.

NORDSTROM Lip Gloss in Tropical Shimmer ($9.95 @ – every spring or summer look is perfect with a coral-y color swiped across lips. It has come back into fashion this time every year and its popularity probably won't wane next year either. 

THE BODY SHOP Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil in Honey Kissed ($22/3.3oz @ – consider this your last touch before heading out the door and much more purse-friendly than that other really popular tan-enhancing shimmer one we’ve all seen. And I think this one smells better as it’s one of my favorites, like the name says, honey.

NYX COSMETICS Setting Spray in Dewy Finish and Matte Finish ($8/2oz each @ – setting sprays are your best friends this time of year. It keeps things in place for at least a few more hours than you’d normally get. And these come in two different finishes.

PIXI BEAUTY Beauty Bronzer + Kabuki in Summertime ($21 @ – this bronzer is a matte version great for sculpting and making features stand out. Use this one with this great tutorial I saw from Allure recent blog winner here to get the most out of it.

Hydrate Lips With Rouge Coco Baume from Chanel

Chanel-Rouge-Coco-Baume-Hydrating-Conditioning-Lip-Balm-2I’m pretty obsessed with this Rouge Coco Baume Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm from CHANEL. I attended one of their events recently and out of all the products, this one jumped out at me most! It contains some really nourishing ingredients including their own Hydratendre Complex to keep lips in tip top shape and it even gives the lips a little glossy look. And it smells of faint roses. A little on the expensive side but this is one I will cherish and be sure not to lose. $34 @, Inc.

Review+Swatches - Chanel Spring 2013 Nail Colour Collection

At no other time do I feel beauty A.D.D. then when it comes to the category of nail polish. Say I’m feeling a beige and put it on my 10 digits, about 1 to 2 days later, I’m ready for a vibrant pink, and then 1 to 2 days after that, it’s time for something shimmery and vampy and it’s not always in this order! I just can’t make up my mind when it comes to polishes so most of the time, I just don’t wear anything because as soon as one nail begins to chip, it all has to come off. Yup, call me high maintenance in the nail department, I guess.

But I do have to say, these 3 Le Vernis Nail Colours from CHANEL Spring Color Collection, seem to be covering all my color bases.

Review+Swatches - Chanel Powder Blush in Frivole

Anytime I just see any version of orange in new beauty products coming out, I automatically think Spring, and it just gets me giddy! Someone pointed out to me the other day that we are about 2 months away from the official first day of the season, so it only makes sense to start exploring what we’ll be wearing soon enough.

Chanel Noir – All You Need With Your LBD


How loyal to a brand’s perfume are you? Like when they come out with a new one, you know you will like it. For example, Viktor & Rolf – Love their Flowerbomb but their Spicebomb did nothing for me. So when I received the CHANEL's new Noir, I was excited yet cautious as the scents are not always a hit with me (I sweat Chanel No. 19 smells like dish soap on me!). I’m happy to report that this rich oriental with spikes of floral really got me and I know I will be wearing it many fall eves.

This eau de parfum has top notes of Grapefruit and Bergamot, middle of Rose and Jasmine, on a base of Indonesian Patchouli and Sandalwood. So sexy and it lasts nicely into the night. $98/1.7oz, $130/3.4oz @

And now that my birthday has officially passed, I’m ready to talk about fall makeup so look for reviews+swatches on some standouts coming our way shortly.

Hall of Fame *review * Chanel Coco Mademoiselle EDP

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle EDPChanel Coco Mademoiselle - Hall of Fame Worthy?

Pros - it’s still a super classic and very wearable for many people.
Cons – I don’t find myself reaching for it as often as I would like.

Does it stay in the Hall of Fame?

Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder

There are a few things in life I just don’t get: stirrup pants, lip plumpers, UGG Boots and Beef Jerky. And I think I’m adding this face powder to the list. CHANEL Natural Finish Loose Powder in Ferrie 47 is part of the Holiday 2011 Makeup Collection and a really beautiful light and soft shimmering pink. So what’s the problem?

Review+Swatches - Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks

I was really excited when I read about CHANEL’s new Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks. And I admit my expectations were high when I tried these two colors -  #36 La Caline, muted rose shade and #38 La Fascinante, a dark rose. So how did they fair?
