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!
HAPPY CANADA DAY! ♥
