Chanel Coco Noir

Posted on

” Before me, no one would have dared dressed in black ” Gabrielle Chanel

” After this, no one would have faith in Noir/Chanel ” London Pretty Boy.

That concludes my verdict on this spin-off type fragrance. If Coco is the grand madame ( elegant & mature ), and  Coco Mademoiselle the mistress ( bright & cheerful ); Coco Noir would be the illegal immigrant au pair !

I am utterly disgusted by Coco Noir. As an exclusive, reputable house of fragrance, Chanel should have done better – Well, at least the classy black bottle is a nice decorative piece, and you could use the juice for your potpourri in the powder room ( I mean toilet, as powder room would be too posh for Coco Noir’s standard )

Holiday Purchases

Some of my purchases while I was holidaying, most skincare items are brought in duty free……

Wanted ( 23 )

These are my must buy items for SS2012. What about you?

April, May or June ?

Posted on

Definitely April.

I am talking about Chanel’s S2012 Le Vernis collection, April 533 that is, an intoxicating burgundy wine shade.

Prefect spring summer shade that is neither sickly sweet  nor OTT bold.  Just paint yours nails with this gorgeous shade and you’ll be ready to rock through SS2012.

Les Verts & La Raffinee

Posted on

I must apologize that I had been cheating on Fashion & Beauty with furnitures, but the house does need some decorating……

Guerlain’s Ecrin 4 Couleurs  03 Les Verts, I like the combination of the understated taupes & refreshing greens.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet  34 La Raffinee, which turns out rather fuchsia on my lips.

The texture of rouge allure velvet is amazing to say the least. I think this is the best lipstick range ever launched in 2011.

L’Exquise + Night Sky

When Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet L’Exquise meets Stila Natural Eyes palette.

L’Exquise  looks deceivingly  wine/burgundy but actually appears more brick reddish in real life.

The uber versatile Stila eye palette.

See what I mean L’Exquise is rather deceiving in the tube?
