été papillon de chanel : launched in UK !

When I did the Chanel 2013 makeup review here, I mentioned that I owned nothing from their brand new "Été Papillon" summer 2013 collection. Well, here it is. Debenhams launched this beautiful and bright and absolutely pop collection today. I stayed sober choosing the "Moon River" n°07 but I couldn't stay reasonable not to buy something. 

So here it is, "Stylo Eyeshadow" in limited edition (don't bother resisting please, you'll regret), which gives a fresh and bright effect to your eyes. If I dared to, I would have bought the blue and the yellow. All the colors are just crazily gorgeous. See the review below for more infos. 

PS: who would not resist for their brightly colored mascara too?

spring/summer 2013 heels !

So these beautiful green heels from Zara arrived last week. I haven't worn them yet but I can't wait. I like this color, it goes with basically everything and to wear heels time to time never killed anyone ;) Perfectly bright for the season if the sun comes out one day!

essie, essie, essie !

Speaking of make up, cosmetics and all that stuff, I received my Essie order :) Although I love nail polish from Chanel, Essie are one of my favorite too. So here's some pop and punchy colors for summer (if it ever comes...) 
 "Bikini So Teeny", "Turquoise & Caicos", "Angora Cardi"

cosmetic shopping spree

Little shopping of some Chanel gorgeous cosmetics. I got my mom a Coco Mademoiselle soap and the mirror for her birthday. Obviously, I couldn't resist for myself too. So I decide to buy a blush for the first time and a mirror as well. 

Joues Constrastées "Rose Pétale" n°99 and double effect mirror

Here's everything that I own as makeup from Chanel

And my proud collection of Chanel nail polish ;)

guilty pleasures

According to my very late updates I think you deserve a little looking back on what happened. Here's a top 3 of my guilty pleasures.

Guilty pleasure n°1: The completion of last year's Chanel nail polishes April - May - June. Gorgeous. 
Guilty pleasure n°2: Ladurée macarons, bought last month before coming back in UK. Delicious. 
Perfumes (left to right): Orange Blossom Water, Red Fruits, Vanilla, Raspberry, Rose, Strawberry & Mint

Guilty pleasure n°3: One of my last day in Paris. Very very fatty-awesome-delicious tuna sushi.

chanel spring summer 2013 collection

Chanel have made 3 ranges for their Spring/Summer 2013 make up collection and I have definitely fallen in love with it.

1. Avant-Première
In this range, I have fallen in love with their nail polishes which provide amazing shades ideal for spring and summer. My favorite: Starlet n° 575. Some of them are limited and other are added to the permanent collection. 

Here's the two that I own (Starlet n°575 and Paparazzi n°579) and I'm planning on completing the collection with Provocation (no numbers provided, which means that it's limited) and Cinema n°581
Note: these 2 polishes have nice and light discreet shimmers in it

2. Printemps Précieux de Chanel 
This is the collection which everyone is talking about for this season. I don't own any of their polishes but I'd like to acquire Accessoire n°573 and Emprise n°569. Also, the illuminating powder "Poudre Signée" is absolutely gorgeous and limited so I need to buy it soon (already out of stock at Debenhams). 

 What I have from this collection: palette Quadra Eyeshadow n°39 "Rafinnement" (added to the permanent collection) and the lipstick: Rouge Allure Velvet n°43 "La Favorite" as seen in Miss Vogue UK June 2013 issue. 

 The eyeshadow is amazing. Chic and pearly the shades are perfect for daytime and nighttime, everyday and every season wearing. 

 The lipstick is all me: a perfect bright coral for sunny days. I strongly recommend it. 

3. Collection L'Été Papillon 
Azuré n°657 - Bel-Argus n°667 - Lilis n°647

Quadra Eyeshadow "Métamorphose" n°44

I don't own any items from this collection because I'm not sure if they'd best suit my skin tone and eyes color but I have to admit that this collection is splendid. Gorgeous acid and bright colors for summer with astonishing shades of blues and greens. Definitely a huge contrast between the soft spring collection and this flashy summer collection. I could definitely fall for an original mascara, polish or the Stylo Eyeshadow. 

Note: I think this entire collection may be limited edition. At least, it is in the US.

beauty tips : lancôme

Although I like the makeup range from Chanel, I have to admit that I have fallen for this newest Doll Eyes palette from Lancôme. So this is the brand new in palette collection : "Fraîcheur Rosée" Wide Eyes n°D01. 
There are 3 main looks: wide eyes, sophisticated eyes and spectacular eyes but then you have the choice of 4 shades for each looks. 

I really love the pink, soft and natural shade of this palette. Ideal for light skin tones and people who like pearly and spring shades. 

This is a mini tutorial on how to use the palette for different effects. 

However, for wide eyes effect (from the palette I picked) I have found an amazing video teaching you how to widen your eyes perfectly. There is a video for each looks on the Lancôme YouTube channel. 


birthday gift

Yesterday was my birthday and I'd like to share with you the gorgeous bracelet that I've had (in addition with an awesome dinner, beautiful roses etc etc) from my dearest boyfriend. 
Tomorrow I'll be posting on the new make up I've acquired, including the newest nail polishes from Chanel for their spring/summer 2013 collection; AND awesome tips and tutorials!

Perfect match with the "Neverfull" cabas, I love it.
