This is an update from my previous post Spring Review: Dior and Chanel 2009 after I had the chance to see the collection in real life.
On the whole, this collection is great! I love neutrals…which this collection has…and red lippies…which this collection has too! You really cant go wrong with neutral shades and red lippies from Chanel!
However… there were some disappointing items…
Top Row: Django & Poudre Universelle Compacte Beige
Bottom Row: Fandango #57 & Vendetta
Django is a pale peach pink with shimmer. Sounds great… looks great in the bottle. Unfortunatedly its rather opaque and thus turns a milky off white on my fingers…anything that is opaque + milky = corpse fingers on me. But for others who look good in opaque milky shades, this is a nice shimmery neutral.
Vendetta is a dark purple with shimmer. Unfortunatedly…on my fingers, its black with a hint of purple. I wish this would be a dark shimmery purple. Please see All Lacquered Ups’ post on Chanel Spring 2009 – Vendetta and Django where she did a comparison of other dark shimmery purples.
Joues Contrast Blush
Fandango is a shimmery peachy (almost orangey on me) shade. This would probably work for tanned ladies…but on me – fair skin with red undertones, the sa suggested using it for contouring instead. I passed on this…cos it looked orangey on my skintone.
Ok…this I do not get. Why make a pressed powder limited edition??
The Eyes and Lip products were much better in my opinion. Reviews coming up…do stay tuned!
Hope this helps!
