Chantecaille Les Pétales Collection for Holiday 2009
For the holidays, Sylvie and Olivia have created three beautiful and unique products encased in small compacts, delicately etched with Chantecaille’s signature rose in a rose-gold metallic finish. The collection includes a sheer pressed powder, a luminous highlighter and a rose lip gloss.
Voile de Rose Poudre Délicate ($36.00)
Luxurious and velvety smooth, this innovative, super-lightweight formula glides on effortlessly to create a smooth, long-adhering invisible finish. Smooth, soft and unnoticeable, this powder embossed with the Chantecaille Rose gives an unprecedented natural and radiant look. Perfect for an evening touch up. Intensely hydrating and never drying due to PCA treated spherical powder. Micronized and elastic coated pigments assure all-day wear and optimal blendability. This distinctive roe-gold compact contains a mirror and a small, ultra-soft puff with a delicate white satin top.
Rêve de Rose Lip Gloss SPF 15 ($36.00)
A soothing and intensely hydrating lip gloss that nurtures lips all day long. This light but supremely moisturizing formula is packed with Aloe and Chamomile to calm, Vitamin E and Rice bran to hydrate and protect and Ceramides and Ginko Biloba to condition and rebuild. Also includes SPF 15. Reve de Rose comes in a beautiful and elegant universally flattering rich rose color with a touch of shimmer- ideal for day or in your evening clutch.
Lumière de Rose Face Highlighter ($36.00)
Introducing a new and innovative formula with a unique mix of pigment and pearl for the most flattering and gentle metallic pearl effect. Perfectly coated micronized pigments impart a creamy and soft touch and provide perfect adherence for all day wear. Triglycerides impart high emollience and will never make skin feel dry. This mini touch of light is beautiful on cheeks and eyelids anytime.

“Cool Sheik”, “Reverse Makeup”, “Dirty and Smudged”
Get the Look
Skin: The models skin was left as pure as possible, using very light foundation where needed.
Eyes: Dick first applied a makeup remover around the eyes with a fluffy brush to give a wet base and slightly glossy effect around the eyes. He then blended two shades of the Luminizing Satin Eye Colors from the Fall 2009 Collection, Squirrel (BR303) and Cavern (BR708). He applied the combination of shadows around the eyes (on top and bottom), right into the lashlines. He then used this color on the lids to create “dirty looking eyes.” No mascara or liner is used.
Lips: To create a matte lip, Dick blended two shades from the new Perfect Rouge Glowing Matte line from the Spring 2010 collection. Whisper (RD722) and Wink (BR323) were combined to create a flat mauve color, ultimately yielding “smudgy lips”.
The look is “Punk rock”, “Painted on lip color,” “Inspired by the bright clothes”.
Get the Look
Lips: Lips were prepped with Aquafor before applying color to the lips. Next, the Perfect Rouge Lipstick in Fuschia (RS320) from the Spring 2009 Line was applied, followed by a high pigment bright pink powder. The lips were completed with a dusting of the Translucent Loose Powder from the Fall 2009 Collection.
Eyes/Brows: Eyes were left completely natural. Dick then used the Natural Eyebrow Pencil from the Fall 2009 Collection if needed.

I want to give you what you want! If the majority of readers would like to see fashion deals regularly, occasionally, or from time to time, I just need you lovelies to tell me! If you have any caveats or concerns, please let me know in the comments section!
To clarify: fashion promotions/sales/deals would be in addition to the beauty deals, and they would only appear on this page, better known as The Deals Page. It wouldn’t clutter up the main blog (just as beauty deals no longer do).
