Bobbi Brown Nude Rose Rich Lip Color

Bobbi Brown Nude Rose Rich Lip Color ($23.00 for 0.13 oz.) is described as a “medium-tone rose brown.” That description is apt–it’s muted rosy pink with hints of beige-brown that downplay its color and make it more of a neutral shade. theBalm Strawberry is more coral. CoverGirl Heavenly is similar, less pink. Guerlain Cherry Blossom is sheerer and shimmered. Bobbi Brown Heather Pink is browner.

5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

5 Pretty in Peach Blushes

Peach can be a really wearable color that can look natural on any skin tone.  Cooler complexions will find that peach-hued blushes can help mitigate any natural redness on the cheeks without emphasizing it like a pink blush might.  Warmer complexions are easily freshened up with a pop of peach on the cheeks.  Reader Sirinthorn wanted to see what my five picks would be for peach blushes, and here they are:

  1. Chanel Espiegle— peach-orange with a satiny sheen
  2. MAC Peaches — classic peach with subtle brown undertones
  3. Make Up For Ever #14 — soft peach
  4. NARS Sex Appeal — pale peach
  5. MAC Melba — dirty peach-brown with a matte finish

What’s your favorite peach blush?

Giorgio Armani #4 Antique Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil

Giorgio Armani #4 Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil ($27.00 for 0.04 oz.) is described as an “antique gold.” It’s a muted yellow gold with bronze-brown tones, so it appears a little brighter than true antique gold but not extremely brassy either. Surprisingly, it reads differently to these gold eyeliners. This kind of color does an excellent job of bringing out the warmth in eyes, especially if you have green or hazel-hued peepers. The color coverage is fairly opaque in one pass, which is always nice.

Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel Collection


Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel Collection

A city arises from the middle of nowhere in a feverish vision, like a mirage. Under the azure blue of a cloudless sky, Las Vegas keeps the desert dust at bay in the hypnotic ballet of neon lights. Along the Strip, the luxury hotels and casinos set the scene for a modern fairytale in which all dreams are possible. Amongst them stands the Bellagio Hotel. Its sumptuous gallery will welcome an entirely remodeled CHANEL boutique in earlier this year. An elegant stopover in a modern-day treasure hunt.

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, creates a gold-plated collection and strews stardust over polyester dreams. The iconic gold of CHANEL elegance slips into every texture. A silky powder on the skin, sunny lacquer on the nails or a sheer whisper on the lips, it highlights a radiant face that’s on a lucky streak.

The Exclusive Creation of the collection concentrates the entire spirit of Las Vegas in its traditional square case. Lined up in rows, four shades of sand and bronze sweep through every variation of a fabulous desert in which gold embraces the sun and shines. On the surface of the colours, an embossed star design seems to extend a warm welcome to the city of dreams. For an illuminating makeover, a beveled brush is ideal for choosing and blending shades, sweeping lightly over the cheekbones, face or eyelids.

Includes:

  • Lucky Stripes Irridescent Powder for Eyes & Cheeks ($95.00) Shades of sand and bronze
  • Brilliant Rouge Coco Shine ($32.50) Sheer gold
  • Vegas Gold Precision Lip Definer ($29.00) Gold
  • Gold Fingers Le Vernis ($28.00) Semi-sheer gold

availability: The Exclusive Creation Las Vegas de Chanel products are available now at the CHANEL Bellagio Hotel and Wynn Hotel boutiques, chanel.com. Please call 1.800.550.0005 for availability.
