Les Trompe-L’oeil de Chanel Temporary Skin Art

This limited edition collection from Chanel is a fun way to wear temporary tattoos that look like Chanel jewelry. Here is a video from pixiwoo demonstrating how to combine them into interesting necklaces and bracelets.

I just got mine in the mail. I’ll be playing with them this weekend. Yay!

Vintage Chanel No.5 Ads

Vintage 1960 Chanel No. 5 ad

Here are some vintage Chanel ads from the 1960s. I always find it interesting to flip through old magazines. I found these online.

I find the ad copy somewhat strange: Every woman alive wants Chanel No. 5.

I Love Makeup

chanel-vitalumiereI’ve been watching makeup artist tutorials on youtube. My favorite youtube channels are pixiwoo and michelle phan. Pixiwoo is two sisters from the UK, Sam and Nic. Michelle Phan, I believe, is in Florida.

They all do a nice combination of wearable looks and crazier looks. Pixiwoo are great for recreating the looks seen on the runway. Michelle is great for skin care (she has her own line of products) and youthful fun looks. Both do great product reviews as well.

Because of my youtube addiction, I’ve been on a makeup splurge. I purchased a lot of new brushes from e.l.f. (eyes, lips, face). They were very inexpensive so I bought loads.

My best new purchase is Chanel foundation. I used Chanel a long time ago, then went through a phase when I only wore sunscreen and powder. Then I discovered bare minerals. But watching these videos made me long for more makeup.

I bought Chanel Vitalumiere foundation. It’s supposed to give me a youthful glow. I like the way it looks and feels. Not crazy about the scent. But it has SPF 15 UV protection, which is always a plus.

My color is 0.8 Gentle Ivory. I couldn’t find my shade on Chanel.com. They are out of most colors. I found mine on Saks.com. Shipping was tout de suite.

What foundation do you use?

Chanel’s Face for Fall 2009


I feel like summer is just beginning. But Chanel is already showing its face for Fall 2009 inspired by Venice, Italy.

Here is the Fall 2009 Collection Venise de Chanel

Exclusive Creation: Eye Gloss
Luminous Cream Quadra Eye Shadow in pearl, gold, black and red black.
Sounds very modern and sophisticated.

Les 4 Ombres
Quadra Eye Shadow in Murano, a moss, pink, seafoam and green shimmer.
I’ve always been partial to green eye colors so this collection really excites me.

Stylo Yeux Waterproof
Long Lasting Eyeliner in espresso, a deep brown, or celadon, a rich emerald.
I love green eye liner.

Exceptionnel de Chanel
Intense Volume and Curl Mascara in Smoky Noir, a smoldering black with a six-sided brush.
Can’t wait to try this innovative brush.

Poudre Douce
Soft Pressed Powder in Peche Caresse, a creamy peach.
You must have soft cheeks to balance the strong eye colors.

Les Tissages de Chanel
Blush Duo Tweed Effect lumination powder blush in New Tween Sienna, an earthy bronze.
I’m not into bronze powders, but I like the presentation.

Rouge Allure
Luminous Satin Lip Colour in six shades: Instinctive, a pink nude, Comedia, a pink rose, Intuitive, a pink brown, Amusing, a rich rosewood, Captive, a red brown, and Clandestine, a red brick.
I want them all.

Glossimer in Arlequin, a nude gold and Courtisane, a red pink.
Red pink sounds intriguing and I love the names.

Le Crayon Levres
Precision Lip Definer in Praline d’Or, a brown nude.
I don’t do lip liners but this sounds like a pretty shade.

Le Vernis
Nail Colour in Intermezzo, a white pearl and Gondola, a maroon shimmer.
I love pearl nail colors, and the dark red sounds great for my toes.

I want that blue lippie.
