Chanel Spring 2011 - Page 8

post #211 of 2106
So has it been confirmed that Riva will not be available at counters?
post #212 of 2106

I don't think so.  The Khaki polishes were boutique exclusives, and this is supposed to be, as well because it is for the cruise collection.

I love it I love it I love it....can't wait for it to get here even though I only want to wear red right now.

post #214 of 2106

I posted swatches on my blog.

http://lacroixthebeautyblog.blogspot.com/2010/11/chanel-cruise-beauty-2011-chanel-riva.html

Does this new Chanel thread have its own swatches? 

I'm having trouble finding the Chanel swatch thread. TIA!

post #215 of 2106

Sari Dore is beautiful indeed! I think this is just the right orangish color I could wear to venture into that color palette.

post #216 of 2106

mrslid, thanks for all the info about the spring collections!  th_WeAreDoomed.png 

And the description for the shine Rouge Cocos sounds delicous, cannot wait to see Boy. 

 

Enjoy your Riva nail polishes. I was very firm on not wanting it, but leave that to Chanel. I have an Illamasqua polish that looks really close and how often do I wear babyblue polish?! 

 

Rose Paradise Le Vernis looks like a very interesting colour. Cannot wait for swatches :)

post #217 of 2106

I hope RIva will end up at counters as Soho did. Even though I don't own any Chanel polishes and have had no problem resisting this colour is something I would really love to have and wouldn't mind dishing out the money for :-(

post #218 of 2106

That RC video is awesome. The model is gorgeous and she wears all three colours beautifully! It makes me want Rose Comete the most. Sari Dore is too orange for me and besides, I have Genial.

 

I didn't know there is a Cote D'Azur collection, perhaps I forgot or missed. I say, Chanel should bring back Azur n/p which came out in Spring 2008. I often kick myself for not purchasing it. The concept of the Cruise collection is so enticing. Don't we all want to go on a fab holiday on a yatch where we sunbath and drink champagne? drinkup.gif

 

I hope we get Riva over here too!

Hey dear - I'm pretty sure that Soho has it right now! :)

Just search in the swatches & it says 'Chanel' or justput Chanel in the search box. The swatches are there.

yes, a nice cruise to cut in winter in half sounds lovely, watching sunsets with a cocktail drinkup.gif

Azur n/p would fit right in. 

 

I really need to watch the RC video...

Are  you getting Riva?

 

 

I feel bad for the people that paid $50 a bottle for it on ebay :)

post #224 of 2106

Yes, I ordered it yesterday from Chanel, but I have my doubts about how it will look on me. lol  I just got Lumieres Magiques De Chanel off eBay and love it! The one on the right is my new one, on the left is a used one I swapped for just to see if I'd like it. The hot pink and the coral are super pretty, my pic doesn't really do justice to them:

I can't insert images into posts on this new board and I have no idea why. Grrrr

It's beautiful! I wasn't into makeup then, and this is one of the items I wish I have. When will Chanel make a blush like this again?

Thanks! I wonder if they ship to Canada? They are a Chanel boutique though not a department store counter right? Hopefully they ship to Canada since Chanel.com doesn't. Worth a shot I guess. I wonder why on earth this bottle is $27 when all the others are $23. It's kind of bizaare?
 

post #227 of 2106

 

I'm beginning to wonder if I may be able to pass on Black Pearl. From some of the pics it almost looks like it has a bit of a metallic finish and I really dislike metallic nail polish. What do you gals think? I hope it's just shimmer. 001_unsure.gif

Ooh, that is really really pretty! I bet its beautiful on!

 

I have been having all kinds of issues on this board lately. And, it makes my laptop run really fast - something running on the board lately that it doesn't like. & its so slow.

 

Well, I plan on wearing a sheer coat or 2 of the blue - sheered out ya know :) I think that way it will be soft & pretty. I hope

I have no idea if they ship to canada - give em a call I guess. I believe its a boutique

post #229 of 2106

Winthrop, I remember seeing that blush on display some time ago.  I was still put off my Chanel m/u at that time based on a few bad quads I had from a looong time ago.  But it looks super pretty! 

 

post #230 of 2106

I purchased Riva, Black Velvet (the rubbery one from the Shanghai collection), and Emoi RAEG yesterday!! Why didn't I know that Chanel's website doesn't charge tax?! And with free shipping too, I was in heaven. I ordered at 10am that morning and they shipped it out by that same night. Talk about speed!

 

I'm super excited for Riva. I have this feeling it'll be one of those polishes where I'll keep looking down at my fingers and smiling. It's such an adorable shade of blue!

post #231 of 2106

http://www.sophyrobson.com/2010/11/chanel-cote-dazur-and-spring-11-colours/

 

Swatches of all three Spring '11 colors (and Riva), including the peachy one, which is very pretty, but a little too sheer looking for my tastes, I think.

i like Riva but i won't buy it. $27 for n/p is too much plus i need to buy christmas gifts for family.

Awesome! I know - free ship & no tax woohoo. Crazy how fast they have been shipping - mine shipped the same night too. Thanks for the link for the 4 nail polishes. I agree th epeachy one is really pretty, but I prefer cream polishes not sheer.

post #235 of 2106

elegant: Agreed, maybe some swatch pictures will come up later that show the peach color layering more opaquely, but otherwise, I pass!

 

And here, more gorgeous swatches of Riva, this time via Karen @ MBB.

I couldn't get to Specktra for almost 2 full days. cry.gif

 

Every other website, blog, company site, shopping site etc. worked for me just fine...but something wouldn't let me load Specktra.  Frustrating!  SOS.gif

I don't think Black Pearl will be metallic or frosty.  I think it'll have a pearl-like opalescent/glowing finish, similar to a real black pearl.  I can't wait for this polish! love.gif
 

post #237 of 2106

i will pass too... and wait for Black Pearl :) that is my kind of color :)

post #238 of 2106

I want Riva and Black Pearl! The swatches of the other two colours seem too sheer.

Yes the other two or automatics passes. Not into sheer. I NEED Balck Pearl and Riva though!
 

post #240 of 2106

Still need to see more pics of Black Pearl, but I'll most likely pass on the other two.

 

Illusion D'or would probably look nice over Riva!
