Lanvin Shades, Flamboyant Rouge Allure on the lips, sans teint!
From the top: Flamboyant, Coquette, Flamboyant ( again) and Nakkar
It was approximately about a month ago I was oogling over Chanel's Riva for the Holiday season. I didn't really find the Holiday collection as exciting as the robin's egg nail polish color but when I was doing some X-mas shopping in Soho yesterday afternoon, I stumbled into Chanel Soho and they had the Spring 2011 collection.
Yes, actually it is about that time for Spring 2011 as last year around this time I made a video about Particulier. Well, the whole Les Perles collection was available for purchase as it is on the chanel.com site.
I wasn't sure how I would feel about this collection as the tones are very grey with a twist of green but upon seeing the corals in the Nakkar glossimer and Flamboyant Rouge Allure, I reconsidered.
The MA suggested I try Flamboyant, suggesting that it would look good against my skin tone and she spoke the truth. Flamboyant is a coral and deep rose confection and Nakkar is its glossy counterpart with golden flecks. If you enjoy a great orange, coral- as I am discovering, you will love these two colors!

Occasionally I check out Sephora.fr to see what the Sephora in the US is missing when it comes to makeup that packs a punch. I've enjoyed seeing Fred Farrugia's line and its prevalence in such publications as Paris Vogue and French Elle.

I'm a little upside down from my camera phone!
At 5:30 am this morning, I got in line at the 59th and Lex H&M for the Lanvin Collection and was part of the 8:25am crew to get my 15 minutes of shopping in.

Chanel Bois Bleu single Eyeshadow ( in the crease)
NARS Triple X lipgloss
The final product!
For the framework, luckly I had some leggings from winter. Then I went to Uniqlo and bought a cheap fleece turtleneck that I turned inside out.
The net pieces acquired were the source of the "glow". Again, with limited resources, my costume couldn't be as slick as this guy's costume here, so I researched buying glow sticks in bulk- this turned out to be a success!
I ordered 50 necklaces and 50 bracelets in blue and a hot glue gun and got to work on a Thursday night, making sure not to snap the bracelets so that they don't start glowing because the glow is only for 24hrs.
After about a calculated method of not snapping the glowsticks, I glued them onto the sides of my black leggings (please note, I didn't plan on using the leggings post costume so gluing was an option). After gluing the glowsticks onto the sides of my leggings, I continued on with gluing the glowsticks onto my turtleneck.
The next day (Friday) , I snapped the glowsticks when putting on my costume and was pleasantly surprised with the results.

Peter Philips brought punchy lips to Fendi for Spring 2011 and he brought Chanel's Lip colors with him, afterall he is the creative director for Chanel's cosmetics and Karl Lagerfeld is at the helm of Fendi. This was quite a surprising change in the cosmetic forecast for Fendi as they normally have smoky eyes. Nice way to spice up Spring and keeping us in suspense for either Chanel's pre-Spring or Spring beauty collections.
4. Nouveau Classics
Hermes Spring 2011 brought us a classic makeup look that has trascended this past decade. The full brow, which has been "in" since 2001, the lined upper lid, and the subtle cheek glow. Three favorites that have been used throughout the oughties.
Yes, Berries are back for Spring 2011 and was in attendence at YSL's show. The hue is easy to wear without bringing too much attention and subtle to wear in the office or apply sans a mirror.

TRON is getting in on the designer collaboration buzz before the film releases in December. Not bad considering this is one of the most anticipated sequels since the StarWars franchise.
