Chanel Khaki Swatches and Review

Posted in Brown, Chanel, Green on October 26, 2010 by ainamakeup

Now that I’ve been bitten by the Chanel bug, I found myself unable to resist the Khaki collection.  At first I’d limited myself to Khaki Vert and Khaki Brun, but after a few days, I decided to get the third in the collection, Khaki Rose.  I have no regrets!

Chanel Khaki Vert

Could I be more in love?  It’s green. It’s moody.  It’s camo.  I love it!  I’m so glad colors like these are in fashion.  These are the kind of colors I always dreamed of but didn’t have enough imagination to create myself.

Chanel Khaki Brun

Love love love!  muddy swampy brown creme.  This was the shade that broke my resistance.  I went to Bloomingdale’s on my lunch break and picked this one up thThis is definitely my go-to brown for the fall!

Chanel Khaki Rose

I wasn’t sure about this color until I saw it in person at Bloomingdales.  I was afraid it would look dowdy and mom-ish.  I was wrong.  I really like it and am happy to have added it to my stash!

Not sure where(or if) you can get these as they came out during Fashion Week.  Just checked the Chanel website and Khaki Brun is still available!  Get it while it’s hot!



Nail Porn: My First Chanel Polishes!!!

Posted in Brown, Chanel, Purple, Taupe on October 6, 2010 by ainamakeup

I never thought I’d own any of these.  I didn’t think I had the gumption to pay over $20 bucks for a single nail polish, but the heart wants what the heart wants.   I resisted the “Black Satin” craze. I’d even managed to not cave in when “Jade” took us all by storm.  I know I’m late to the party but after seeing swatch after swatch of these throughout the nail bloggesphiere, my will was broken.  I gave in, purchased my first Chanel nail polishes and I have no regrets!

Chanel Paradoxal

What a gorgeous unique color.  I love the subtle shimmer flash of pink in the grayed-out purple base.  What can I say about Paradoxal that hasn’t already been said.  I will cherish this polish always!

Chanel Pariculiere

Grayed out Taupey brown shades are on my irresistible list.  I just knew I had to have this and I’m so glad I made the investment.  There may be similar colors but I’m so glad I have this one!
