Chanel, You’re Rockin’ My World at the Moment! – Beauty Article

A little Chanel never hurt anyone. Heya, friend. I’m sitting here at my desk with a rumbly tumbly because I’m waiting on an air conditioning specialist to stop by for an estimate. (Side note: Phase one of Operation Casa Mini Remodel is officially underway.) Two things I’ve learned so far about home remodels and home repair projects: Anything that can break, will break, and surprise! — everything breaks at the same time. Waiting on the people who can fix those…

Liquid Lipstick Love – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

These are fabulous! I’m tempting fate whenever I wear lipstick with white clothes, but I like to live on the edge, mwahahahaha! A rebel (not really) in Chanel Luxuriant I’ve been all about the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink liquid lipsticks ($38 each), man. They came out a few years back, and they’re still a fixture in the permanent collection. Thank goodness for that, too, because there’s really nothing else quite like them. They’re like a shy first kiss…and you can…

Chanel Les Indispensables Les 9 Ombres Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Les Indispensables Chanel Les Indispensables Les 9 Ombres Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($70.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of more muted neutrals across multiple finishes–mostly matte and satin with a few more pearly/frosted shades thrown in. There was a decent mix of lighter and more mid-tone shades, but the palette could have benefited from at least one deeper shade (as #7, which is the deepest, isn’t that deep!). I’d recommend pairing this with your favorite eyeshadow primer…

Chanel Lumieres Naturelles Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Lumieres Naturelles Chanel Lumieres Naturelles Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, warm-toned neutral quad featuring three hues of light to mid-tone brown and a dirty gold. I wish the lighter, matte brown was more blendable (it really should be for the color it is and how it fits in the color story), while the mid-tone shimmery brown could have held its intensity better. These seemed to fade a little faster than some of…
