Chanel Glossimers in Beige Guitare and Wild Rose

With a name like Bohemanian Fantasy I was expecting something a little more whimsical from Chanel’s Spring 2009 collection, but sadly I was a little disappointed. It’s not that the collection isn’t beautiful since everything is supremely wearable and subtle, I just wanted something more springy! My favorite pieces are definitely these two glossimers in Beige Guitare and Wild Rose though. Beige Guitare is a shimmering beigey gold shade that would look stunning on its own or layered over nearly any lipstick, and Wild Rose is a soft rosey shade that gives your lips a beautiful, just pinched look with a touch of shimmer. I can easily see mself indulging in both!

Bohemian Fantasy’s Les 4 Ombres Quad in Mystic Eyes surprised me with its pigmentation since I really wasn’t expecting much from it at all. While I’m not a huge fan of the shades (a dark chocolate, pale frosty pink, silvery gray, and a lighter bronzey brown), they are all very wearable and shades you can easily pull off on a daily basis. Am I wrong in wanting something more fun for the spring though?

So one of my other faves from this collection was this absolutely stunning lip palette. Seriously I saw it and couldn’t stop oohing and aahing–I’m a sucker for a pretty palette! Sadly I didn’t bring this home with me but I’m just dying to get my hands on this Chanel Levres Signes Chanel (Satin Lip Cream) palette. I don’t even have swatches of it for you because I just didn’t have the heart to mar the perfection that is this lip compact by sticking my grubby fingers in it!
