Bitten!

by the Chanel bug! 




It all started with this bottle:
The Chanel Nouvelle Vague! I told myself, this will be my first and only Chanel. I don't wanna pass up on this shade even if too many blogs and youtube reviews say that I don't need this if I already have China Glaze For Audrey (which I have), they're the same, minus the subtle shimmer. Hard headed that I am, I still bought it. Just because I don't want it to be another Chanel Jade, a polish I wanted so much but can't have unless I'm willing to pay for P15k a bottle, thanks to the scalper in ebay! 

Weeks after, another nail lacquer was released! Again, I can't say no. So I got this:
Which reminds me, I don't have a post about this on my blog. Bottle color and how is it on the nail, totally different. I actually like the nail version more. In the bottle, it looks like a metallic dark purple. On my nails, it's this smokey gray color with a hint of purple shimmer (which is too hard to capture on cam!). 

When I'm about to pickup my Paradoxal at the Chanel counter at Shangri-la, I made the mistake of checking out their blushes. When I swatched Pink Explosion, I immediately got worried about my wallet! LOL! I know  I need that blush in my life. It's already out of stock on the local counters, I had to ask Smile to get it for me in HK, thanks to her, I'm now a proud owner of a single Chanel blush haha. 


And of course, it didn't stop there. When I saw an ad from a local board for Chanel Egerie, I got it too. I'm not really a lipstick person, so spending P1,650 for a single tube of lipstick is too much for me. Good thing I got this for P700 including shipping. I love internet shopping! 


Swatches:

Here's a simple FOTD :
Neutrogena Skin Enhancer in Medium to Tan
combined with NARS Sheer Glow in Sta Fe
Laura Mercier Loose Powder
UDPP in Sin
Urban Decay Naked Palette (used Half Baked, Smog, 
Dark Horse and Virgin)
Chanel Pink Explosion
Chanel Egerie






Yes, I need to brush my hair often LOL! And please ignore the eyebag, i normally sleep around 3am and I'm usually up by past 7am! Every single day except for weekends.

And back to Chanel, major major lemming for these polishes:

Oh shoot! Is there a cure for this? An antidote? Please let me know, I need it ASAP!
