Chanel lipsticks - Rouge Coco, Rouge Allure, etc. - Page 54

post #1591 of 3661

I bought Antigone, the last piece at my counter, and Sari d'ea today! Almost bought Monte Carlo, and forgot to swatch fetiche. New stocks arrived but I got the last Antigone, so it is sold out again!

 

HG - lol on almost. I'm like this all the time.

Bonheur got to follow me home today.blush-anim-cl.gif

Antigone has been my go-to lisptick since I got it a month ago...I kinda forget I have other lipsticks and I'm a huuuge lipstick addict :/

Love Antigone & MC, Sari D too - great choices. Glad you were able to get them.

 

I just swatched Fetiche & Bonheur the other day. I really liked both so I couldn't decide but I think Fetiche is very very pretty.

 

Got my iMac!!!! had to tell you ;)

Ooh, do tell how it looks on. That & Fetiche are going to be next for me. They are equally lovely

^^ Yay, congrats on getting your new iMac! It must be looking very pretty on your desk! Have not worn Antigone yet,  maybe will wear it tomorrow or weekend. Sari d'eau is bright and pigmented, I was surprised when I put it on. But it is transparent and glossy so I can wear it in the office. It also stains my lips lightly.

 

Poupette - enjoy your new l/s!

Congrats on the iMac Elegant! I'm a long-time Mac girl (in both senses) and I swear by mine (both the iMac and the iPhone). 

 

I wore Antigone today and I'm just in love with it all over it again. A perfect summer red.

post #1598 of 3661

Congrats on the iMac Elegant! I would love to get one but I'm stuck on PCs for the foreseeable future for work-related reasons. I am definitely planning on an iPhone soon though.

post #1599 of 3661

Elegant -- how are you liking your iMac?  We switched over to an iMac over a year ago -- but I feel like I really should know more of the ins and outs of a Mac.  I hope you love yours!!

I am soooo sorry I missed these posts!!!! You guys are so sweet kissy.gif

 

Well, I'm still learning girlhaha.gif but its not as bad as I thought it would be. Hubby set everything up - because I am challenged :) a little. He set it up pretty much the way my HP was. I really love it the more I use it. Mac does make amazing products - & they look so beautiful.

 

I was right at a very crucial work deadline when my HP wouldn't turn on with ALL of my work/data etc. inside it cry.gif Fortunately, we backed most of it up in hubs' computer & we bought the iMac just days before the laptop went down. So, I'm trying to make the best of it. I will say that it was very reasonably priced for what you get compared to everything else out there.

 

The kids have all MAC everything so they wanted us to go this route anyway ;) I guess the new iphones come out this fall.

 

Anyhow - thanks for thinking of me heart.gif

 

Are you guys getting that red lipstick in the next collection?

post #1601 of 3661

The one with the red blush? I should be getting it. I've heard that the new iPhone is coming in September here too. I think I should wait for it instead of getting version 4. I'm using 3GS now and I planned to upgrade it in a couple of months but if 5 is coming soon I should wait.

I'll be waiting with you. Currently I have a 3G and I love it, but it is too slow with the new iOS.
post #1603 of 3661

I keep hearing we won't see a 4G iPhone until 2012.

Depends on the definition of 4G I think. The one that is supposed to come out this autumn will be more like a 4S and will HSPA+, 4G won't be in until next year I guess.

MissQQ, I would definitely get Hibiscus Bloom if you are able to - I have all of the LM gels, and love all of them.  As others have said, they have longer staying power, and I just really like the formula.  I also think that the RCS are overpriced......

 

I'm waiting for the new iPhone too - I think it's due in September here.......

 

Saw the brochure for the new Velvets yesterday - oh boy, more lipsticks to lust for........

post #1606 of 3661

Oooohhhh...tell us about them. Are there a gazillion shades with subtle differences between them or just a handful that will make choosing easier?

post #1607 of 3661

Yeah tell us about the velvets! Will the LM gel lip colours still be available in the US in July? My co-worker is traveling to Washington and Boston in July and I'm think of getting her to buy Hibiscus Bloom for me. It is so overpriced here.

They're available some places still, but not others. I was in a big Sephora last weekend & they didn't have any & my Nordstroms was sold out of all the shades. But yes, if you can find it, get it :)

 

I am trying a new YSL lip balm. The sales girl in Sephora was wearing it so it was sold out that day. It was the prettiest shade of deeper pink. They gave me an out of stock free ship code, so I just ordered it off the website - should get it this week.

 

post #1609 of 3661

^^ Thanks. I hope the LM l/s will be there next month. What shade is the YSL lip balm in? I'm interested in them. greengrin.gif Maybe I can get my co-worker to buy it for me too, at the airport it is tax free at least. How much is a tube in the US for the LM and the YSL?

post #1610 of 3661

The LM gels are $22USD, the YSL $30USD.....

 

I didn't notice the smell of the KK (and I smell EVERYTHING) - it dissipates quite quickly -

The YSL is Sheer Candy Lip Balm - #4 Succulent Pomegranate
(sheer bright pink with red undertones) yep - $30 us

 

I wish that I would have also bought the YSL Dewy Papaya (fresh peach) I wished that I could have seen the other colors in person but they didn't have them yet.

 

The LM were such a great price point. LM Sweet Cherry is such a GORGEOUS perfect cherry red on. Its my 2nd favorite color.

post #1612 of 3661

As I recall, and I only got a quick glance at the brochure, there are only about 8-10 velvets (only, she says!).  And yes, MissQQ, the mirror is as you describe.

 

On a different note, I just called Saks in Boston, and 'Jackie' wasn't aware of the Byzance collection - I may call the boutique there and see if they have a clue......

post #1613 of 3661

Oh that sounds like a much more manageable number than the Shines to decide between. Thanks!

 

I like that mirror - I see it from time to time on strawberrynet but haven't been able to bring myself to part with the cash for it.

post #1614 of 3661

^^  ITA - I think it will be a skip for me.  I am interested in the brush set, however.  I have one Chanel brush - I think it's #3 - the eye crease brush, and I use it every day.  I love it.

post #1615 of 3661

Do you know which brushes it includes?

post #1616 of 3661

Thanks, Cheryl and elegant, on the prices. The LM l/s have a good price. Over here it is more expensive than Chanel. angry.gif Hmm maybe I can get my coworker to pick up 2 of them. girlhaha.gif I can't decide on which other than HB at the moment.

 

cheryl - lol at your avatar.

 

elegant - I'm adding Sheer Candy Lip Balm - #4 Succulent Pomegranate in my list!

 

winthrop - I saw the mirror in real before. Wanted it but in the end not enough to part my money for it too. I bought one from Anna Sui, the LE white one with a rose a both sides.

post #1617 of 3661

^^  When I saw those undies they made me laugh......very silly, but what the heck.  Sometimes silly is good.

I just tried the Bonheur and it's lovely. It looks as little dark in the tube and kinda plummy, but on the lips it's a fresh deep rose color, as if you've just had a loooong makeout session. kissy.gif graucho.gif

BF loves it too, haha. :)

 

post #1619 of 3661

I love the formula of the RC... they are one of the best i have tried.

If the LM are cheaper for us, why are they more expensive than Chanel - that doesn't make sense?

 

My YSL should be here today.  I was going to say that I will take pics of it - but without my laptop I'll have to figure out how to do it with the Mac type.gif

 

You know, I cannot believe this - I bought that Chanel Mirror like 15 minutes before I learned that it would be available here in the states sigh.gifI got it from my Singapore connection. I wanted that mirror for so long. Actually, I needed a mirror in my purse & it had to be Chanel :)
