I am a fan of Chanel beauty products. I purchase them when I am able. That being said, and bias presented, I would like to just give a quick review of these two specific products.
These are my reliable colours. Especially during autumn. The nail lacquer is #663 lovely beige, and the lip gloss is #46. A perfect match 🙂 Like most of you, I usually shop for my nail/lip colours seasonally. It really only takes one set of colour co-ordinating products to last the entire season if…BIG IF you manage to find something that doesn’t require constant care and reapplication. I do have 2 sets of colour favourites that I will buy as long as they sell those. This tinted nude colour set that I am sharing about here and the other is a bright red with a some orange colour in it. With these 2 colour sets I can maintain nice looking nails through the year.
I chose these colors for a few reasons. They are neutral, fitting for many seasons and events and my capsule wardrobe consists of neutral colours which display well with both colour sets 🙂
I have a problem with ordinary nail colour. My problem is: Pieces just fall away. You know, those ugly bits of natural nail showing through the tips of your newly tinted lovelies. Quite frustrating! Some things help (like wiping over your clean nails with toner in order to remove the oils before polishing and using a good base coat) but if your colour is not quality, it will last for about an hour in perfect condition.
I’m addicted to Chanel nail lacquer mainly because it lasts. I mean lasts through serious dish-washing, laundry, administrative work, garden work, cooking, etc. Being able to look down at the evening after a long day and see my beautiful manicure makes me happy. In order to make it last as long as possible, I usually do wipe my clean nails with some facial toner, let dry, then use a good base coat of polish holder, let dry completely, 2 coats of colour and Chanel’s top coat which also shines and keeps your manicure looking new.
I like the lip product because it has by itself just enough colour that you don’t actually have to use it in conjunction with other lip products. It small enough to fit in the smallest of clutches. During the day, I’ll usually dab on some lip balm, then apply gloss over. For a transition to evening, I’ll dab on lip balm, use a light lipliner and then top with this lipgloss. Lasts well and makes me feel pretty.
