Why must it always be an international site that manages to break the stories the quickest?  Sadly, I am only an English speaker (I took French for five years, but please, let’s not go there).  Zghzp delivered this color story, in Chinese (see Google translation here), and I must tell you, I certainly hope that as we get closer to February, information for the US launch trickles out, because I am hard-pressed to believe that a collaboration collection would feature as many repromotes/permanent colors as the site says.

This is why I’m not a fan of incomplete info!  I want everything – product photos, full color story, and exact descriptions and names.

Are you still excited over Fafi?

Temptalia Asks You

Do you buy products you know don’t work for you? For example, is a product’s pretty packaging something that might get you to buy something or a color you know just won’t be right for you?

Part two of the Chanel Glossimer experiment, and while I might not have converted into a Chanel-gloss-only kind of gal, I definitely wouldn’t pass them up when offered them! The six up for review this time around are Pin-up, Constellation, Equinox, Scintillantes, Sundress, and Sungold. Quick summary? Sungold is one of my favorite glossimers I’ve tried to date, while Pin-up gives me a great barely-there pale, pink pout.
