Happy Canada Day … with a little help from CHANEL!

Canada Day 2013 opener


In preparation for a post to honour my country’s birthday, I began rummaging through my makeup collections for inspiration – and came up blank … until my eye fell upon 2 items that I had inadvertently placed side by side: Joues Contraste Powder Blush in ‘Rouge’ (from the Limited Edition Collection Byzance Fall 2011 – swatched here) and Joues Contraste Powder Blush ‘#78 Délice’ (from the recently released Limited Edition Les Délices de CHANEL Collection 2013 – review coming soon). Red and white, the colours of our flag – perfect! To round out the little tableau, I also added Glossmer #151 Aragonite, a pearly lipgloss with iridescent particles that looks amazing on everyone (working on my 3rd tube of it as we speak), and Rouge Allure Lacque in #75 Dragon, an intensely powerful and long-lasting blue based red lip gloss, that is sadly now discontinued – a fact that I don’t understand, as this formula is beyond stellar. Still, it makes me happy that I can show my patriotic pride in such a chic way — in true beauty blogger style!

    I love the red & white makeup theme! That gorgeous white Joue Contraste is calling my name but I must resist for now, le sigh. 🙂

      Happy Canada Day to you as well, Liz!

      I resisted Délice as well….then I made the mistake of not only swatching it on my hand (total failure that way — it looks ridiculously stark & so not how it actually applies), but applying it on my face — what finally convinced me. It’s ultra, ultra finely milled and gives the most unreal (as in amazing) glow … very Galadriel, but in a non-flashy Elven kind of way, if that makes sense!

      PS: Bet everyone thought I’d be going with a Canada Day themed mani, right? 😉

  6. This is adorable Eugenia! Happy Canada Day!

  7. Chanel is perfect for every occasion!
