Chanel Summer 2011: Mimosa Le Vernis

Chanel Mimosa Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a bright, sunshine yellow with golden yellow shimmer. It applied fairly well–there was a touch of streakiness in the initial coat, but the pigmentation was excellent, because the color was nearly opaque on that first coat. I used two coats for even, opaque color coverage and found that worked best. The formula was on the thicker side, but it flowed well, and the drying time seemed faster than usual. I typically get a week of wear with Chanel’s polish using a base/top coat.

B+
This is such a pretty summer color, and it's a really wearable shade of yellow. The warmth of the base color along with the warmth of the shimmer allows the color to brighten the skin rather than giving it a sallow look.

Chanel Summer 2011: Lilium Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Lilium Eyeshadow Quad ($57.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a collection of green and “brown” shades. The lighest shade is a soft peach beige with subtle warmth and a barely-there frost finis. The second lightest shade is a yellowed chartreuse green with a medium frost finish. Next, there is a smoky, bluish green with a blackened base and a metallic-frost finish. The final shade is the most complex, because it’s a mix of mauve, gray, and taupe with a dusting of cool bronze shimmer.

All four shades applied really nicely; pigmented enough to provide true-to-pan color but the texture was soft to allow for really easy application, where the colors blended seamlessly with each other and adhered well to the lid (over a base). There is a mix of tones here–the lighter shades are warmer and brightening, while the two darker shades are cooler, smokier. The size of the quad is nice, too — each eyeshadow is about 0.06 oz., which is a little higher than the average individual eyeshadow (0.05 oz.). When you start thinking about Chanel, their palettes are often the best bang for your buck.

The color palette of the quad is not at all what I think of when it comes to summer but yet it works. It's almost like a mix of spring and fall that pairs well with all of the corals of summer.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle with Keira Knightley

Three years after the first commercial film, Knightley reprises her role as COCO MADEMOISELLE, a modern day Coco Chanel whose mystery, daring and rebelliousness are at the heart of her charm.

While the first film featured long evening gowns, the second takes on a more urban feel, with Knightley appearing on the streets of Paris in a chic, beige motorcycle jumpsuit designed for her by Karl Lagerfeld. Filmed in legendary locations across the City of Light – from Place Vendome to Place de la Concorde, the film is a collaboration between Knightley and Joe Wright, a creative relationship that began with Wright’s directorial debut, the Oscar®-nominated film Pride & Prejudice, and continued with the Oscar®-nominated Atonement.

“For me, Gabrielle Chanel is an icon and there was an incredible power emanating from all the photos of her,” states Knightley. “When I began to delve into her history more closely, I was obviously fascinated by her immense talent as a designer, but more than that, by her singular background.”

The commercial film’s soundtrack, “It’s a Man’s, Man’s, Man’s World” by James Brown is performed by the soulful voice of Grammy® award winner, Joss Stone and was published by Warner Chappell.

Coco Mademoiselle is a fresh oriental scent created by CHANEL master perfumer Jacques Polge in 2001. The fragrance represents the ever-evolving spirit of Coco Chanel in this feminine, sexy, young and exciting fragrance.
