Chanel - Le Vernis nail colour in June
This is part of the Spring 2012 collection - as soon as I saw a spoiler, months ago, on lisaeldridge.com I was in love! It's just so pretty.
I don't usually spend that much on polishes - I just can't justify more than 5 quid on a nail varnish, really... they end up drying pretty quickly and I have never finished a bottle... a bit of a waste, if you ask me.
I've been wearing it 'barely there' with 1-2 thin coats - it's so flattering on tanned skin; but, if you prefer, you can still build it to a more intense colour.
If you look at the bottle, it has a slight shimmer but it's really not detectable on the fingers and it's super glossy!
Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder in Brightening Nudes
This product, first, caught my eye on a youtube video; so, I had to pop in House of Fraser and swatch it. It's the perfect mix of neutrals, if you ask me - brown, beige and pink and the most stunning shades!
I have swatched the 6 squares separately here - only for the blog benefit - but I would never attempt to use them individually: all the tones work perfectly together.
I can't explain how... but It really has a brightening effect on the face and also feels so light on the skin.
The packaging, also, is beautiful: I got to say that the mirror compact doesn't seem to attract fingerprint (as much as the Guerlain' ones) and it has a magnet closure. It comes in a pouch but it's made of cotton instead of the velvet (Dior/Chanel types) that gets dirty in a nano-second.
Have you seen/bought any of these items??
