Why Does London Get All the Cool Stuff, Lately?

And by that, I mean this:

A taxi that (if you are lucky enough to hail it down) will take you to a complimentary makeover at the new Chanel store.

The best I can get over here is some aggressive salesperson in the mall offering to put lotion on my hands.

Totally not the same.


Things I Covet: Route des Indes de Chanel Illuminating Powder

Which is another way of saying I wouldn’t even use it, I would just open up the case and stare at it every day.

Things I Covet: Chanel Collection Paris-L.A. Palette

That right there? It looks mighty tempting.

Chanel’s multi-use palette, dubbed Paris-L.A., consists of 2 lip glosses, 1 lip color, 3 powder eyeshadows, 2 cream concealers, 1 cream blush and custom applicators. I’m not  sure why they are touting the applicators, as most people usually throw them out. The colors seem a bit too fall-ish, but if they work for you, it seems like the perfect travel palette.

Not that I’m doing much traveling lately, but even if I were, I’d probably balk at the price tag.

Las Vegas De Chanel Capsule Collection

OK, confession time.  When I was a young lass back in the late 1980’s, I totally wore gold lipstick.  And I rocked it.

Today, probably not so much.

Hmmm, maybe on top of another color?

I’ve no desire for the nail polish, and the bronzing palette is cute.

Not pictured is a gold eyeliner that would actually work well on me.


Monday Beauty Poll

A big thumbs down was given to the new Marc Jacob nail colors.  65% of you yawned mightily and took a nap, while only 35% of you thought it was nice enough.  The only way those particular shades could be fantastic is if the color depth is phenomenal, and I haven’t seen it in person, so they very well might be.  But, I still think I’ll pass.

Today I’m about the metallics.  They are a hot trend right now, and I’ve got a question.  Be honest, now…

Chanel’s Lumiere Sculptee, which is priced almost as much as something you would put on your walls.
