Chanel Newness and Collection Libre: Synthetic de Chanel

More makeup lushness. Now I could wax lyrical about Lucia Pica's inspirations and stylings, or we could cut to the chase and talk about how gorgeous this new collection is. What you need to know: unsurprisingly, it's Limited Edition and out on 4th November for the Christmas gifting season. I would move quickly because these are insanely lovely colours to use and I'm sure will prove very popular.

There are three Le Vernis colours, all of them Limited Edition at £18.00. In particular, the Velvet on the left is a matte, rubber-effect polish that I'm sure will sell out immediately. 
All available from and instores on 4th November.

Launching tomorrow on counters nationwide is No 5, The Body Oil. Fans of the fragrance will no doubt find the extra layering of the perfume desirable, and as this is a semi-dry oil, it will also be a little more nourishing than a normal 'dry' oil. 
I always expect Chanel to really go for it during the gifting season as they could clean up, suffice to say it seems they are continuing to show the great restraint seen in recent years. I remember in the not too distant past when November would mean the Chanel counters being loaded up with soaps, powder puff talcs (remember those!?) and the like. Alas, no more. Best grab this while you can then.. It's £62.00, available from Selfridges and Nordstrom tomorrow.

These have been on counter for a couple of weeks and the Rouge Allure Ink collection continues the Lucia Pica red obsession in the best way. 
These 8 shades are labelled as 'mattes', but they are mattes for people (like myself) that can't wear a true matte because frankly, our lips are a bit older and not oily enough. These are velvety soft and do not make your lips look dry, in part due to the jojoba oil base. 

The Rouge Allure Ink collection is on counters now and are £26.00 each - available from and John Lewis.

  1. I have to admit I quite like the higher end versions of liquid lipsticks, they just sound more realistic to me as (I'm 22) my lips can't handle usual liquid lipsticks on an everyday basis! I like the limited edition yet I have to admit I was expecting something a little bit more Christmassy!

    1. I feel like the Red Collection WAS their Christmas collection as it was SO red and special. This is almost spring-like isn't it?

  2. I love the nail polishes! The colors are so pretty <3


  3. surprisingly it doesn't look very christmassy to me. Pretty, but not what I expected. And the blush and nail polish color make me think of lycra leggings in the 80s.

    1. Exactly. It's like Spring-time in December!

  4. Lovely to meet you today, please could you also pass my thanks onto the amazing lady who did my make up and talked me through all the products (I've forgotten her name but she was a brunette with a fab fringe) and all the staff at m and s.

  5. Love the light and bright colors!

  6. Am I blind and completely missing the N°5 oil? I go to the Selfridges link...nada.

    1. Ah sometimes if it's sold out they'll just remove it from the website..
