Chanel Mini Glossimer Trios ($50.00) I haven’t seen these before, but it looks like they have come out previously. Oh, well, still new to me! Now, this might just get me to go out and buy some Chanel and fast!
Available in two tonalities: the beautiful warmth of Les Soleils includes Pin-Up, a beige peach; Coral Reef, a pink beige; and Glow, a bronze peach — and the delicious coolness of Les Roses includes Magnifique, a sparkly pink; Glaze, white pink; and Satinette, a pearl pink.
MAC MANISH ARORA is available to purchase online! I purchased a few things so that I could swatch them for you all! Then I’ll probably gift them to family, LOL! *goes back to bed*
Lavanila Healthy Body Wash in Vanilla Coconut ($20.00) is providing customers with a 100% natural and sulf-atefree body wash option. You can choose from four scents: Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Grapefruit, Vanilla Blossom, and Vanilla Coconut. These body washes are new products to their Healthy Body line, which already includes coordinating fragrances and body butters.
The company lists the key ingredients as: coconut oil (to cleanse), oat protein (moisturizes and adjusts skni’s pH), pomegranate (gently exfoliates), Goji berries (antioxidant), Willow Bark extract (acts as an astringent to tone), and Vanilla Planifolia Fruit extract (anti-inflammatory). You won’t find SLS, mineral oils, parabens, silicone, or phthalates in this product.
Vanilla Coconut reminds me of the beach–it’s just got that heavenly scent of coconut and the beach scene. If you liked Bobbi Brown’s Beach scent, you’ll love this, too. The scent doesn’t linger prominently once your shower is over, so if you want to smell like the beach all day, try layering the scent with the body butter. I find it lathers really well for a product tagged natural, and even against more chemically-created lathers, it lathers well. This is best used with a puff sponge, because it helps the product lather and gently exfoliate and cleanse your skin.

This is a very quick post, because I’m in between classes, and I can’t get over how lovely the Beiges de Chanel quad is. The quad comes from Chanel’s Holiday 2008 offerings, which are lovely in their own right, but this is the only item I’ve been able to see and play with in person. I did a super fast look using the quad before I jetted off to class–seriously, five minutes or less–and I was so pleased with the results! The colors are so soft and smooth, and they’re incredibly flattering. They blend seamlessly with each other! I even take back what I said about the “highlight” color — it might swatch chalky, but it softens like a dream when actually used. So truly, I urge you all to visit your local Chanel counter for a look-see and swatch-a-roo when it’s fully released! (It’s been popping up in some areas, but not all.)
