Happy 2016 readers! I hope the New Year brings you all the happiness and success in the world. For myself, I couldn’t think of a better way to start the year than by lounging in the lap of luxury.
That’s why I played with a couple of pieces from the Chanel Holiday 2015 Vamp Attitude collection all day!
This blush was a beautiful gift I received at Christmas, and can I be real with you guys for a moment? I’ve been using and working with luxury cosmetics for nearly a decade.. And I’ve never used Chanel makeup! ? I know, it’s insanity. I’ve purchased polishes before, but for whatever reason, I’ve never ventured into the cosmetics. I think this is partially because every time I went to a counter to buy an LE highlighter, it was sold out. The other side of that is that before I ever worked for a counter, I was very intimidated by them.
Now I’ve finally got something to play with! Joues Contraste Lumiere in Coups de Minuit is a little bit of everything. I’ve always been partial to baked products, so this is right up my alley! A peachy beige, it can function as either a highlighter or blush. I’ve used it for both and like it either way, but I will say for anyone with a medium-deep skin tone, this will function much better as a highlight. It also layers well on top of another cream or powder blush to impart some extra radiance and glow.
I’m a little obsessed with the chic packaging, too! Like Marc Jacobs beauty, the lacquered black compact gives a very standout appearance. With the iconic interlock CC logo and a large mirror inside of the lid, you can truly tell that the product is held to a high standard of quality. The brush that comes with it is soft, but I’m unfairly in love with my brushes and never really use the travel ones I receive with product.
Run out to your nearest counter and see if you can still get your hands on this!
