Chanel Spring 2013 makeup collection - Page 23

post #661 of 939
I walked by the counter today and eyed the dummy longingly, lol. Then I forgot to swatch OR again. I remembered it looked very warm on me, which is why I don't feel I need to have it. I love the prints of the highlighter so much that I wish Chanel gave me the dummy instead of a snow globe last year.

Ingenue - Gorgeous as always! OR looks amazing on your skin tone!

I was wonder if the liner looked different because it was touched up for the magazine, or yes, computer screens. I want to know :)

What is old shimmer....are you making fun of my age (jk) lol.gif

 

It has very pretty G emphasis on the "G"  .....old shimmer girlhaha.gif


Lol, oops! Didn't notice that typo. Old is never a word I would use to describe you. It just doesn't fit. nonono.gif

Launch dates are not that specific here and store might release it a bit earlier or later. I would check again next week to be sure you don't miss out.

 

Well, that makes more sense than a Spring collex being released in March. The poor SAs will probably get sick of seeing me every other day until the collection is finally in.

 

Beautyscene doesn't say selected stores only so I'm guessing my local will have this collection. I was hoping for a bla bla % off multiple makeup items type promotion but I doubt there'll be one before March. I'm considering delaying my purchase until a promo comes up but I don't want to risk the highlighter being sold out. Last year's Beiges Artifices stayed around for quite a bit (my store still has it on display) but I have a feeling Poudre Signee will sell out pretty quickly.

My OR is fine - I decided to open it to see (I was just going to send it back) - it's just as smooth as Santal is, so I agree with Winthrop that there must be batch to batch issues.  I would try again -- I used it on my waterline last night and it was beautiful.

 

And yes, I think that's Clair on that model too........

 

I am seriously considering getting another highlighter - I don't think the plastic one would do me girlhaha.gif.

post #665 of 939

So which of you ladies has Envoutante (Elegant, I know you do, and I think Winthrop ordered it), Precieuse, Fantasque and Captivante?  What do you you think?

 

I have La Favorite and L'Eclatante, but did not order any of the other lip colors from the collection.  I saw Karen's swatches on Makeup and Beauty Blog, but her coloring is substantially darker than mine, so I'm wondering how these might look on me (I'm trying to avoid the mall if I can).

 

I'd appreciate any opinions on these colors!  TIA!!

Good grief. I must be seriously out of it. I actually do have Envoutante and it's a lovely purple shade. I got it mixed up with Captivante, which is the one I still need to get along with L'Eclatante. I'm not sure if Precieuse and Fantasque will be too pale for me, and those are the two LE shades.

 

I'm also contemplating another highlighter. I need to snap out of it! lecture.gif

No, that is helpful - I was afraid it was a really deep purple but it seems like it's a great berry color!  Thanks for taking the photo!  I think I can make it work!  yahoo.gif

post #670 of 939

Naaah is not scary dark purple...it looks scary but swatches sort of sheer.  There is shimmer in the lipstick but doesn't show up that much when you apply it - that's what probably sheers out the color though, I guess.

post #671 of 939

Yay!  That's what I was hoping for - think I might check it out this week - as if I need one more lipstick to add to the 458210642 others I have.  nope.gif  th_rolleye0014.gif

Bought the highligher.  ~smh~  Now I want the purple lippie...   

post #674 of 939

I did it! I joined the team and purchased the highlighter. OMG the texture is so divine. And the packaging! Anyone still debating just do it, I even convinced a customer at the counter to purchase it. yahoo.gif I went ahead and purchased Fracas, Accessoire, and L'Eclatante. Lovveeee L'Eclatane. It's such an everyday wearable bright pink.

post #675 of 939

Is L'Eclatante like Joyeuse RA in terms of colour? I don't care for the RAV formula, but L'Elclatante looks bright while still feminine and sophisticated. Does the two new RAVs feel like the same on the lips as the earlier RAVs?

I think they did the color just right. Its beautiful & yet still looks modern/youthful. Sometimes these shades can make us old ladies....well, look older whistle.gif But as usual, Chanel did it just right.

 

I am also REALLY REALLY loving Guerlains 761 Flirt lipstick - GORGEOUS on love.gif Its a beautiful raspberry color

Flirt is another shade that I want to get my hands on. Are they different enough to warrant owning both? I'm guessing, since you obviously like both, that your answer will result in me spending more money...

I love this quad too! It is great! I can use it with any color for a pop. It is perm though, so no need to worry about back up's! :)

Oh, dummy me, I did not know that it was perm - really! Its awesome. I wish that I could buy the darkest color in a single.

Thanks!

The Guerlain collection is disappointing : chalky texture and a white eyeshadow among purples huh2.gif ( Attrape-Coeur ) and rather cheap products on the whole. The best in this collection is the Rouge Automatique, the 2 Shine are really pretty. The mascara looks good too and its price is low ( 28 € ! )

post #688 of 939

I spotted this collection already today. BuickMackane be sure to check your store! I will try to get the highlighter, but I need to wait for some money first. Hopefully it won't sell out too soon.

I'm wearing Raffinement now. I've only worn the darkest color in the crease. I will try it your way next time.
