CHANEL N˚ 5 DAY IN NYC — May 5th, 2009
Audrey Tautou is the newest spokesperson for the iconic fragrance, designed to capture Coco Chanel’s philosophy. Chanel describes the fragrance as, “a rich modern floral blend of Grasse Jasmine, May Rose, Neroli, Bourbon Vanilla and Ylang-Ylang with gentle precious woods.” It debuted in 1921, and it is still a staple for many women.
Today, Chanel unveils a short film titled Train de Nuit starring Audrey Tautou, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. You can view the film at www.chaneln5.com. Additionally, May 2nd through May 10th, the Saks Fifth Avenue New York flagship store will be changing up their exterior and interior of the store to celebrate Chanel.
Have you tried Chanel No. 5? Does it hold any memories for you?

4 Must-Have MAC Orange Lipsticks
About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.
Morange lipstick is a ridiculously creamy, opaque bright orange shade. This is not for the faint of heart! This is a lipstick one must wear with the utmost confidence.
Meltdown lipstick is a shimmery orange with just a little bit of coral in it. It’s surprisingly wearable, particularly for those with warm, deep skin tones.
So Chaud lipstick is a orangey-reddish shade. It’s not quite a red, but it’s not necessarily bright orange either. Very pigmented, very hot (harhar!).
Charismatic lipstick is a sheer, brownish orange shade with subtle gold shimmer laced through it.
What are your favorite orange lipsticks?
What’s your “special occasion” look consist of? What products? Do you always change it?
I tend to go for a fairly neutral look, actually! I spend a lot of time on “perfecting” the skin
Chanel London Madness Collection for Summer 2009
May brings a brand new reason to step in to Selfridges for the opening of the new Chanel Makeup Counter. To celebrate the occasion, Peter Philips, the Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, has designed 3 limited edition must-have products – The London Madness Collection – which will be exclusively available in the Oxford Street store and then launching nationwide at the end of June. This collection was inspired by Peter’s love of London and has been expressed in the creation of the exclusive Union Jack Palette.
- London Madness “Pearly Banner” Highlighter with an ivory, gold and silver union jack on the surface
- Rouge Allure in ‘Enthusiast’ Bright, young, fresh red shade
- Le Vernis in ‘Enthusiast’ Complimentary red nail colour
Available: May 2009 at Oxford Street store, late June elsewhere in the UK — I do not know if this will be launched outside of the UK area at this time!
