Loving Right Now: Chanel

May 30, 2011

Chanel is my favorite brand, hands down. Chanel never fails to release something beautiful and each season I find at least one thing that catches my eye. Many have asked for my top ten picks for Chanel in each product category (nails, lips, eyes etc.) but I find it difficult to narrow down my favorites to any given number. My favorites change monthly depending on season, mood and occasion. I will be hard pressed to name something that I don’t love from the brand (although I’m not really fond of their concealer or mascara). I do love all the other color items, however, RIGHT NOW, my favorites include the following:

Perlé Rouge Coco, Seashell Glossimer, Bronze Universel de Chanel (replaced by Soleil Tan De Chanel), Dragon Le Vernis, Jade Rose Le Vernis, Espresso Stylo Yeux, Regard Perlé Quad, Mystic Eyes Quad, Island Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Lips and Cheeks
  • Perlé Rouge Coco – soft shimmering pink (if you want something less expensive that is similar in effect, check out MAC VGV lipstick)
  • Seashell Glossimer – sheer shimmer
  • Bronze Universel de Chanel (replaced by Soleil Tan De Chanel) – the best cream bronzer to contour your face naturally and lasts all day, hit pan on 1, this is my second one

  • Dragon is without a doubt THE best red out there
  • Jade Rose is subtle but elegant and never fails to look polished

Jade Rose:

Dragon & dreaming of a caviar classic flap in red:

  • Island Soft Touch Eyeshadow (unfortunately discontinued) is the prettiest soft peachy pink champagne, Liberty and Lotus are similar, or for cheaper MAC Naked Lunch, but to me nothing truly compares
  • Regard Perlé is still on my favorites list (see it here)
  • Mystic Eyes is a classic that can take you from day to night
  • Espresso Stylo Yeux comes with a sharpener at the end to keep the tip pointy, this eyeliner is soft, easy to blend but stays put all day

I can’t believe May is almost over!

  • Oh, what a nice collection! I have almost all items too – Jade Rose, Mystic Eyes and Perlé, but have never combindes e/s and lipstick.
    Right now I am in love with Burberry Taupe Brown and Armani Blush 5 – looking for some new lipgloss.

  • I really must get my hands on Dragon! A lot of your favs are mine as well! I can always count on Chanel to please. When all my orders are online it's nice to know I won't encounter many disappointments!

  • Beautiful collection! I am loving Chanel as well! My favorites currently are the Ombres Perlees de Chanel eyeshadow quint and love my taupe gris single shadow, and the Vita Lumiere Aqua is amazing! I just picked up Espiegle blush as well!

  • Great Post! I like Chanel too.

    Have you ever tried something from Givenchy? Because I really love the limited edition products from Givenchy. And maybe this is something for you too!

    Love your blog.

  • I love the name Dragon for that polish. It's so fierce! lol

  • I have always been envious of your Chanel collection, Sabrina–especially your nail polish! I also find myself reaching for Seashell Glossimer more than any other, and I absolutely love Dragon polish. I put it on my toes last night, though it's feeling a little wintry today.

  • Chanel is definitely in my top three brands that I love! I am rarely disappointed in their cosmetics and am already so excited for their fall collection. Have you tried Lotus Rouge that is my favorite Chanel polish, so pretty!

  • Whenever I see dragon, I think of beauty look book!

  • when guy friends ask what they should buy as a b'day gift or anniversary gift – i always recommend chanel. even if it's lipstick or shadow .. never fails!

  • Everything looks so pretty! Chanel is the epitome of elegance 🙂 I must add Dragon and Jade Rose to my wish list! Love Regard Perle & Mystic Eyes 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing. It was interesting to see your favourites, Out of your picks I'd say Soleil Tan De Chanel is my favourite.

  • Jade Rose look amazing! (:

  • What a fabulous collection. What makeup brush do you use to apply the cream bronzer? Thank you!

  • I am a Chanel girl as well, and would be equally hard pressed to limit my favorite items to just a few. Orchid Rose blush, Lotus eyeshadow, Mystic Eyes quad, Bel Air glossimer, Iris Glossimer, Espresso eyeliner, Inimitable Mascara and the Eclat Lumiere concealer are probably my most reached for items, along with the new Vitalumiere Aqua foundation. I am also a huge fan of their fragrances.

  • Loving these colours! My fave mani/pedi right now is a bright red toe (OPI Red My Fortune Cookie) and neutral fingers (Chanel Jade Rose). No one does "Secret Shimmer" in nail polish better than Chanel. No. One. I tried to find a dupe for Jade Rose (why? who knows) to no avail. Gorgeous. So now I just need the Seashell gloss and I'll be complete…le sigh….

    That caviar classic flap in red is drool-worthy. Dying.
