Yeh, I have only one Aqualumiere lipstick too, Majorca, and it is very gritty and dry! Agree that the RCs come in all kinds of formula.

 



I am in love with the smell of lipsticks...Dior rouge dior, YSL's and Chanels.

 

I find the smell adds to my experience!!!!

 

My Versaille RD lippie from the Holiday collection smells like typical Dior though...

I have a hyper-sensitive sense of smell since my other beauty-related hobby is collecting perfumes. Opening my tube of Nocturne for the first time was like getting smacked with a bouquet of violets. Airing it out now to see if the scent will tone down any.

My counter is having the new RCS this week and I got a mailer saying we get a badge with every RC or RCS purchased. Some of you may remember I got two badges when the RC first launched and I bought Gardenia and Mademoiselle. I'm swinging by the counter this weekend!

QoS - hope the scent goes away! What are your favorite perfumes?
post #2734 of 3661

^Ohh lucky! Tell us what you think of the new RCSes/RCs! I'm especially curious to see how En Vogue compares to Sari D'Eau, how Culte compares to Destinee, and Avant Garde compares to Superstition.

 

As for what perfumes are my favorite...wow, that's a tough one. If I had to narrow it down to a my-house-got-robbed-by-a-beauty-burglar-and-these-were-my-only-bottles-left type of situation I'd have to go with Chanel's Cuir de Russie, Tom Ford's Noir de Noir and Serge Lutens' Chergui and Fumerie Turque. I'm generally a big fan of dark-but-semi-sweet scents, leather being my favorite note. When it's hot out though I'll reach for something lighter, like Narciso Rodriguez's For Her Musc Intense or Chanel's Une Fleur de Chanel. I also have a bunch of Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab bottles.

^^ I will see if I can compare the colours you mentioned. En Vogue is from the summer collection, not this. I believe these are the 6 we are getting.

I have only smelt Chanel Cuir de Russie from your list, as I'm still at the mass market stage. You have expensive perfume tastes! tong.gif Too bad I never got to try Une Fleur de Chanel, I read that it is LE. I like green florals, but am not a fan of very flowery floral scent.

 

Anyone knows what Sigrid Agren is wearing on her cheeks? Horizon? It looks pinky coral in my mailer, like this.

post #2736 of 3661

LOL my perfume tastes are expensive, which is why I have more testers than bottles. At least until I start working again. sweatdrop.gif Une Fleur is a pretty watery/light floral. It got bad reviews because critics didn't find it original, but sometimes you just want to smell clean (who doesn't?) and not perfumey, you know?  There's a perfume shop here that has two bottles of it left but they're way out of my budget at the moment. >_<

 

Hmm, according to the site you posted, Avant Garde is indeed darker than Superstition. When these come out here I'll have to bring my tube of RA Nude to see how they compare.

 

Her blush might be Malice. Isn't Horizon (the new stripey one) lighter?

Saw the new RCS and RC. They are all different from the old colours. I didn't buy anything and there were no badges with any purchases at my usual counter as it was not launched as planned. Instead, I saw these at the studio.

 

RC Cult, Avant-Garde

awesome!!!!  Thank you for this...so destinee is redder than culte, and Avant garde is deeper than superstition!!!!  yeah it might then show up on my lips!!!!

 

post #2739 of 3661

Thanks for the fabulous pics Miss QQ!  I like Cult!

post #2740 of 3661

Thanks so much Miss QQ! I might have to give Destinee another look (and give Culte a look too), and DEFINITELY will be checking out Avant-Garde. I'm still kicking myself for missing out on Patchouli a few years back and I've realized Nude has a bit of an orange tone to it.

post #2741 of 3661

Hi,

 

Culte and Destinée are really pretty, I don't know if you have the Roses Ultimes ( just arrived here ), glosses and nail polishes are great too.

The Rouge Coco is typically a ready-to-wear lipstick, I couldn't do without !

post #2742 of 3661

Culte shall be mine! I'm also rethinking my decision not to purchase Destinee. It's a frustrating thing that NONE of the Chanel counters near me have good lighting, so I'm always gambling a bit. When I tried it on, I thought it looked a little too brown on me, but every time I see a swatch, it doesn't look brown at all. I'm kind of confused. 

post #2743 of 3661
Thanks for the swatches, MissQQ. Cult looks gorgeous. Are you planning to get any of the new colors?

It was not brown on me at all, cannot do brown.
post #2744 of 3661

You're welcome, ladies! smiles.gif I love sharing them with you, and we can all get excited together.

 

No, my counter has not received the Roses Ultimes collection. I don't know if I'm getting any of the new lipsticks, but Candeur is calling my name now. I want Saran wrap lips! A friend helped me buy YSL Rose Bergamasque lipstick, I can't wait to get it next week. The dior addict extreme lipsticks launched last weekend but I haven't look at them. Too many lipsticks!

post #2745 of 3661

Great pictures MissQQ and thanks for the swatches!  You have lovely hands, too :)

I find Destinee goes on my medium pigmented lips like a browny plum colour...not as purple as it looks in the tube.

 

post #2747 of 3661

Lovely swatches & pics MissQQ!!! Thanks You

 

I'm loving - Effrontee, Style, Sourire

post #2748 of 3661

i like sourire but i think it will be too sheer on lips

post #2749 of 3661

Can't wait to see Sourire! Thanks for the pics!!

While at my Chanel counter today at my local Nordies I asked about the new RAs, and the SA said they're slated to be out in October. She's seen the pamphlet with the new colors but didn't have it with her there. She hadn't heard anything about a reformulation, just new colors being released. She did confirm that 6 of the new colors would be red. I specifically asked if one was a coral-red, since most coral lipsticks tend to be pink, and she said that yes, one of the reds was a corally-red. I'm officially on a lip ANYTHING no-buy until October. greengrin.gif

 

 

 

Some food for thought/discussion: What RA(s) do you want to see a comeback? What would be your dream RA that Chanel has yet to release that you'd LOVE to be part of this collection?  type.gif

 

Mine: A corally-orange-red. Not an orange red like Audace, not a pinkish red like Flamboyante, but a reddish coral. Maybe Enthusiast? Or heck, a true coral for that matter. A red with gold shimmer would be nice too. Also a nice deep browned rose-mauve, like Zoya's Marcella np. I would buy a BILLION of that.

 

(by all means, if Chanel actually DOES have colors like that already in the RA formula, do let me know. heart.gif)

^Enthusiast is a BEAUTIFUL color on! One of my all time fave Chanel colors. I had to hunt that puppy down (bought2)

post #2752 of 3661
post #2753 of 3661

^ I LOVE that color!!!!

I've been wanting that lippy for SO long, it haunts me. ohboy.gif Here's hoping it (or something similar) will be part of that fall RA collection!

post #2755 of 3661
Did you try having the various dept stores do searches for you? You'd be surprised at how many older things you can find that way. Elegant & I both got that one by calling the Vegas Neiman Marcus counter. I believe the SA's name is Maria. If she cant locate one try Saks and Bloomingdales. I've had luck with both of them on older things in the past too. Good luck if you try.
post #2756 of 3661

iagree.gif I hope it will show up on my lips and gives it a pretty pinkish tone (I have very pigmented lips). If it does, it's coming home with me heart.gif

Thanks JulieDiva, I'm glad to know I'm not alone. I swatched Culte yesterday and was surprised at how brown it looked as well. It reminded me a little of the LE Mac shade Riveting, which I love, but Culte is less purple/ mauve. I don't know if it'll look good on me. I would have tried it on, but the Chanel boutique was pandemonium yesterday. A bunch of teenagers jostling people out of the way of the counters and someone had let her two kids (probably 6-8 years) loose. They were running around, bumping into people, knocking things over, screaming... I felt sorry for the people working there, who seemed to be retreating to the far side of the place...

post #2758 of 3661

I almost picked up Candeur yesterday, and then I stopped myself. My usual counter was giving out the Rouge Coco badges with any lipstick purchase. The badge this time is different from 2 years' ago, it's a printed blue jeans fabric background with white printing of the CC logo and Rouge Coco in the middle. So cute.

post #2759 of 3661

^^MissQQ -- I wish they gave those cute badges out here!  They should come with Chanel.com purchases too.  Sounds adorable :)

post #2760 of 3661

Yeh, its very cute and makes a good chanel collectible. Not as exquisite as the necklace elegant got though. ;)
