So what do you think? Are you going to pick it up?

Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel Collection Haul & Review

I was in Las Vegas when the Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel collection launched. I first went to the Chanel counter at Barney’s New York in the Venitian and they had no idea what I was talking about, but sent me to the Chanel Boutique at the Wynn. By the time I hurried over there, there was only 2 powders and one lipstick left. Sheewwww, a near miss! I think I would have broken down and cried right there if I had gotten there and they had told me they just sold out!

Anyway, I picked up the Lucky Strikes Iridescent Powder for Eyes and Cheeks which is soooo gorgeous (and crazy expensive at $95). It is shades of sand and gold and you can use it as a highlighter on your face and eyes and also as an eyeshadow. It blends like a dream and looks amazing. I’m in love! See swatches below:)

I also picked up the Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in Brilliant. The name nails the way it looks. It is a sheer golden glaze and it is brilliant. I suggest that you use it over a lip liner or lipstick to give it a golden sheen. You could also use it on its own if you have pigmented lips, but I won’t be using it that way. Its very unique and I don’t have anything else like it in my collection. I like the Rouge Coco Shine formula. (see swatches below)

There was also a gold nail polish and a gold lip liner that I did not pick up. I can’t imagine using a gold lip liner and I didn’t find the nail polish to be especially unique, although it was very pretty.

The Exclusive Creation Las Vegas de Chanel products are available for a limited time at the Chanel boutiques at the Bellagio Hotel and Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas and also on chanel.com. You can call 1.800.550.0005 to check availability.

Chanel Spring Collection 2012

I love Chanel, who doesn’t?  Anyway, I picked up some things from their Spring collection and I’m super excited to share them with you!  I got Chanel Eyeliner in Taupe #84, which is the most beautiful taupe eyeliner I’ve ever seen.  Its totally gorgeous and a must have!!!  I also picked up the Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in Eclosion #34.  Its such a pretty spring palette, although one shade is a little chalky and had some fallout.  The other four are a dream, I love them and do recommend the quad.  The last thing I picked up was Blush Horizon de Chanel # 4305.  Its so pretty in the pan.  It has stripes of peach and pink with a little white and berry mixed in.  When blended all together you get a gorgeous peachy pink.  You can go more pink or more peach if like, just from the way the colors are laid out in the pan.  Its a dream:)  All the items are shown and detailed in the video.  Enjoy!

Did you get anything from the Spring Collection?  Do tell!!!
