Roses Ultimes de Chanel collection - Page 5

post #121 of 298
Thread Starter 

Maybe I should go look to see if I bought it and forgot....

 

Edit: I searched my old posts and you are right that I bought it. I vaguely remember it now after looking at Sabrina's swatches but I must have fallen out of love with it because I definitely don't have it anymore. Sorry I can't help on that comparison.

Just got Desir and Jalousie!  They are both so gorgeous in the tube.  I'll report back when I've tried them both :)

 

Update:  Desir is a very pretty, shimmery warm pink color.  It reminds me of a darker Pink Peony glossimer (has the same type of shimmer).  I wore it over Belgravia RA and it was really pretty.

 

Jalousie is so pretty -- very pigmented bright raspberry shade.  Almost a lil shocking since I am uber pale right now.  I think it would look really pretty on a variety of skintones.

Yep, Jalousie was too shocking on me. Ironically I need those kinds of colors to be sheer to be wearable on me.

Michelle dear, I am SO sorry that I missed this :( I'm sure they are so beautiful on you! Enjoy!

Just put it on your bottom lip & smoosh your lips together & see if that makes it more wearable :)

Ooh, I love Distraction np in those pics. It doesn't look so orange as it does on chanel's site.

post #127 of 298

I hope those that celebrate Valentine's day had a fun day yesterday.  I still love the adorable homemade cards my girls make me in school :)

 

Elegant -- I can see Jalousie looking amazing on you!  Have you worn it much??

 

Gail -- do you think you will hang on to your Jalousie glossimer?  Did you try Elegant's dab and smoosh?

Awww, I bet those cards are just adorable!  I returned Jalousie. I did try dab and smoosh but to get it sheered out enough to be wearable on me makes it look like a gazillion other pink lip products I already have...it's beautiful but sadly just too bright & cool-toned for me personally and I should have known better. Really with my coloring I need softer colors, and if I do go bright the shade needs to have some warmth to it. It's ok...I still love the other 3. heart.gif

Yes, I wear a light to medium application of it :) I kind of fades while you wear it just a bit.

 

I made our son & DIL handmade cards along with sending them a large gold foiled heart box filled with Hershey Kisses & York heart mint patties love.gif Oh, & a pink glow-in-the-dark ball for the puppy :)

 

I'm sure your girls' cards are adorable. I love all those handmade memories. We kept ALL the ones our son made. In fact, we were just looking at them last weekend cry.gif

Ah crap. I swore I wouldn't buy any Chanel NPs but Distraction looks like the coral I've been looking for my entire life. eyelove.gif

 

 

post #131 of 298

Ooh, that is a pretty polish right there...

post #132 of 298

oo i want jalousie 

i kinda was hoping for something like bikini peach :( 

oh well..

post #133 of 298

I found more swatches! Naturalnchicmakeup has a review up on her blog: http://naturalnchicmakeup.blogspot.com/2012/02/chanel-roses-ultimes-de-chanel.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blogspot%2FeFgg+%28naturalNchicmakeup%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

 

I think I'm just going to get Jalousie of the Glossimers (although Volupte and Plaisir look so nice and milky! *wavering*). I really like all the Vernis, except for Attraction - even as a collector, I kind of can't bring myself to go for that frostiness.

 

This is my first post! I'm a huge Chanel freak, started with the polishes a few years ago and just last year crossed over into the rest of makeup. Needless to say, it's been an expensive year. blush-anim-cl.gif

^^ Thanks! Frisson and Distraction look very pretty!

post #136 of 298

ooo jaulousie and desir will be mine !!! 

post #137 of 298

Out of curiosity, how close is Amour to Bagatelle? Is it at all?

 

Also, Winthrop, you said Peche is good with Volupte; any chance you have any pictures? I'm curious to see how these look!

 

One more edit: Are these in stores, or just online? I usually buy my Chanel at Macy's, but it's a trek for me to get even there. I'd hate to make a trip for nothing.

I'm sorry, I don't have any pics. If I have good light tomorrow and my camera is behaving (which seems to be a daily question mark) I'll try to take some but I can't promise.

 

Bagatelle is more salmon-pink, more pigmented, and less sparkly:

They are in stores because some people on MUA have purchased them in person, but which ones have them already I don't know. I would just call ahead to the Chanel counter at your Macy's before going.

 

 

post #139 of 298

Don't worry about it if you don't get a sec; I was mainly curious!

 

I answered my own question about the availability. I was able to pop by my Macy's on the way home, after work. They had gotten it in, but just today!! The MA wasn't even sure of what I was asking about when I first asked about it. It was still in the boxes!!  I ended up getting Amour and Desir from this collection, and I also picked up the Kaska Beige quad and Pink Sugar lip liner.

 

 

post #140 of 298

I am happy to hear that these products are ending up in retail stores.  I have a Nordstrom's gift card just waiting in my wallet to be used!

post #141 of 298

I bought Desire gloss & Distraction (great name for me..ha!) np. LOVE them both. I bought a JCrew blouse that ended up matching Distraction which I didn't even realize until I got home.

 

I also got to feel all the new Chanel brushes - WOW were they ever soft soft soft! The skunk brush is absolutely incredible. The Chanel ladies were wearing their gift - an absolutely adorable small Chanel perfume bottle that said Chanel on a silk black cord - I want one so bad. sigh.gif See that's what our love gift (which the cheapies didn't give us this year) should have been huh!

 

And, my head Chanel lady said that she is wearing Desire in the promo shot not Amour. That's what her head people & her paperwork say. And after seeing it in person, I think its Desire as well.

How much will the skunk brush be? Do you know what it's made of by any chance (long shot I know! lol) or when the whole line of new brushes will be available?

post #146 of 298

The brushes should be available any day now. I bought some Euro Chanel brushes when visiting Paris and London. They are leaps and bounds softer  then the US onesand not a bit scratchy. They are not as soft and silky as Hakuhodo brushes however, I felt that the HKH brushes were too soft and didn't pick up enough pigment.

post #147 of 298

Here is a look at the new brushes.

Glad you are loving your glosses.  I always seem to end up at J Crew, also.  I love it when they have their sales online!

Those necklaces sound adorable -- bummer they don't give those out to all of us VIP customers  LOL

What did you get at Ikea -- anything fun??

 

 

Gail, are you off buying the new brushes?? :)
