Chanel’s Holiday 2008 collection includes Beiges de Chanel, which is a great quad of soft, warm tones. It’s perfect for subtle holiday eyes, as well as more dramatic combinations (by using the dark brown with gold shimmer color). The colors were silky smooth and had good pay off. The only one with a chalkier texture was the “highlighter” color, and for that purpose, the texture works out. I really love the bottom left color – it is just this gorgeous muted golden tan color. This is such a classic quad well-suited for the holiday season.

Lately, I have been sporting the foundation + lips look. The above photo was taken a few days ago, but I’ve been doing a lot of the same: foundation, light blush, lipstick, and gloss. This particular combination was YSL’s Fetish Pink Rouge Volupte Lipstick ($34.00) topped with MAC Crystal Rose Lipglass (LE). I’m hoping I get less lazy and actually DO makeup tomorrow ;)

*Edited to Add* Normally, I’d definitely pop some mascara on, but every day I start my look off going, “I’ll just go to school/grocery shopping/laze about, and then do full makeup.” See, if I put mascara on right away, then I end up trying to just refresh it in a full look, because taking it off ends up removing some of my foundation and yeah… LOL.

I finally received my nail polish haul from, oh, THREE WEEKS ago! (Sigh!!) I did quickie swatches (let’s face it, if I waited until I had time to do clean, professional, pretty ones… you’d never see them) of everything I got, so expect to see an influx of nail polish posts this coming week :) The one above is from China Glaze’s Ecollection – you know, eco-llection. I was tempted to get Recycle and Shower Together, but another gray caught my eye, and with fall/winter coming, blue just won’t be worn, I know it. So, resist, I must!

(As always, swatches are done with two coats of the polish.)
