Chanel Taupe Grise & Khaki Vert Applied

For all those complaining (ha ha!) that I’ve not done any FotDs for a while, here’s two for the price of one: I wanted to show you the difference between the two shades, apologies for the differences in lighting conditions!  On the left there is Taupe Grise, and on the right is Khaki Vert.  Both are applied over a Trish McEvoy eyeshadow base, and I’ve […]

Chanel Autumn Collection – Eyeliners Cassis & Clair

You all Chanel-ed out yet?  Well, I’m not, but this is the last one for a couple of days, I promise! I had seriously promised myself that I’d only been going to get the eyeshadows I showed you yesterday, but when I swatched these, I had to have them too.  (I bought Paradoxal because, well, even I get swept along in the hype sometimes) The […]

Chanel Eyeshadow Singles: 87 Khaki Vert & 88 Taupe Grise

When I was buying Chanel Paradoxal the other day, I was very aware that it was quite low down on my list of “must-haves” from the collection, these two little beauties were the things I was eagerly awaiting, and how happy I am to have them, finally!  Sadly, the picture has washed both shades out a little.  On the left above is Taupe Grise, which […]

Chanel Paradoxal Dupe?

 I picked up Jessica’s Venus Was Her Name about a month ago, because it appeared so unusual in the bottle!I got it from The Sanctuary, but I’m assured there are other places you can pick it up from.  In the bottle it appears a charcoal shade with tonnes and tonnes and tonnes of purple shimmer.  Sound familiar?  Here’s now it looks on the nails: On […]

Nail of the Day: Chanel Paradoxal

Yes, you may have seen this on a few blogs already, but if you know me, you know I have a hard time resisting Chanel, and I love my murky shades.  So, when Chanel bring out a range of murky shades, I’m in there.  Totally!  Paradoxal is a grey with purple shimmer, but depending on the angle you get either a purple-grey shade, or a […]

Our lucky winner has elected to remain anonymous, but this was her winning entry: Ten things that make me happy: 1. My husband – sickening but true. He also […]

Birthday Giveaway!

If you read my Zuneta post yesterday, you’ll know I’m about to have a milestone birthday.  In many ways the milestone birthday.  Eek! But, I thought I’ll make the most of it and share some of the wonderful goodies I’ve discovered over the last few months with you.  So, with that in mind, I’d like to offer you a chance to win all of the […]

Chanel Limited Editions

I’ve picked up quite a few over the years, and these are my favourites. There are no reviews or swatches with these, but if you’d like to see any, please ask. And a closer look at each: This last is the newest addition to my collection (courtesy of the lovely Charlie at Lady of the Lane) I love how it appears to glow! I sort […]

Favourite Brands?

I get asked a lot what my favourite makeup brand is, and it’s such a difficult one to answer!  There are so many brands out there, and they all do something well that picking out just one for praise is almost impossible.  Well, for me it is, anyway. But, I guess, if I had to pick just one brand that I’d use for the rest […]

Chanel Ombre D’eau

I don’t see these very often around the blogosphere, and I wonder why that is? I find them very easy to use, and  60: Sand (on the right)is very often my default eyeshadow for applying a slick of over the lid for those “can’t be bothered” days.  If I want something a bit more sludgy, then I’ll pop a little of 100 Torrent over the […]
