Peter Philips, the creative director of Chanel Makeup and Chanel lipstick is now completely redesigned and improved. He designed the Coco Rouge lipsticks that will appear in shops on March 2010.
The face of the Coco Rouge will Vanessa Paradis, as you can see her from the amazing beautiful pictures. Chanel hopes that with the release of Coco Rouge lipstick the generation mass that is currently so in love with lipgloss will return to the classical lipstick.
I don’t know about that because I admit I’m a lipgloss-lover myself and if you will look closely into my makeup case you can hardly find any lipstick. Continue Reading

Starting from September Chanel launched a new skincare collection that is available online at www.Chanel.com and on selected Chanel stores nationwide. With this collection Chanel promises a breakthrough on the skincare department.
“Youthful – looking skin requires more than a boost of collagen and elastin. Chanel reveals that for a face to have youthful firmness skin’s cellular structure must be in a perfect state of tension. New ultra correction lift goes beyond surface action providing a natural lifting effect at the very heart of the skin. The skin is denser, more toned and the face appears naturally lifted from within. The uncompromising quality of Chanel turns research into results.”
The collection includes the following four products:
- Ultra Correction Lift Sculpting Firming Concentrate ( $165 ) comes in a 150 ml airless pump black bottle with a very chic and elegant design. Its gel texture is light and silky. It gives your skin an instant firmness and a lifting effect. After the first month you will see an increase with 39% in skin resilience. The concentrate contains a special seaweed found in the North Sea, English Channel and Atlantic Ocean that protects the extracellular matrix against the breakdown of elastin and which will restore skin density after the application. You should apply it after a deep cleansing of face and neck and before applying the Day Fluid, Day Cream or Night Cream. Continue Reading

I hope that you like this come-back as much as I do! I always loved dark nails. Black, dark brown or mysterious purple, you name your favorite, but all these dark nail polish colors gave me the feeling of a mysterious and strong women. They look great on short nails but if you choose some art nail design (with the condition that you won’t color all your nail) you can wear you nails a little bit longer.
Darker shades – purple, indigo, plum, red-black – are sober and sexy at the same time. Plus, they complement perfectly outfits in neutral colors (gray, beige, brown) so fashionable this fall.
There is no problem if you want to wear your nails a little bit longer and rounded at the top, but darker nail polishes look better on very short nails, naturally rounded at the top.
Only specialists have such a precision to manage not to stain the cuticles when they apply the nail polish. So we would better use first a base coat, then the nail polish, and in the end a top coat that will make the nail polish resist better and have a nice shine.
Here are my nail polishes suggestions for this fall. Karen from MakeupAndBeautyBlog and Michelle from AllLacqueredUp already reviewed some of them, so you are only a click away from seeing these beautiful swatches.
Contrasts are the law when it comes to color lips this season: you can opt for electric colors, but even for some very dark ones. Common denominator is boldly. As for me, I think I will stick to those electric colors, cause being so white skin dark colors won’t do anything else, then make me look very pale or even Emo style.
Tip: If you want purple or electric pink lips, the eyes makeup should be reduced to minimum – neutral eyeshadow and mascara -, otherwise you will get more a funny look then a trendy one. For evening, when you want a retro-glam look, you can accentuate your eyes and lips, with the condition that you’ll stick in the same color range. Continue Reading

Tip: To see exactly where you should apply your blush, look in the mirror after you made a little effort to see where your cheeks turned naturally pink. You won’t fail, if after you shook up in your hand the brush loaded with powder or blush, you start applying from the lower part of your cheek b bones to the temples. Continue Reading
