Hey beauties! I know I haven't posted in eternity it seems like. I have been going through some rough personal period and I have not fully recovered. I am better every day though....there was a time last week that I thought maybe I will sleep and not wake up ever again. Compared to that tough time I'm MUCH better, I even decided to start blogging again. Please send me some good vibes, I can definitely use them now.

So what better way to re-start posting than showing some Chanel swatches? Chanel Rouge Allure Laques to be precise. I recall telling you that these were only being discontinued in the US and not Canada (as I was told by my Chanel SA). But apparently I had been misinformed and they are actually being discontinued here too :( I currently have five of these babies and I will get the rest ASAP. You guys need to check out this amazing formula before it's too late....there are ABSOLUTELY NO better lipsticks than these!

You can see some of my FOTD's wearing the RAL's here, here, here and here.

Check out my babies all lined up. These are all part of the perm line with the exception of 707 (Empire) which was holiday 2012 edition:

75 (Dragon) - perfect blue red, hands down my fave red ever. This comes from a red lip addict!
72 (Coromandel) - gorgeous orange red, I adore this for making an impact in the winter
707 (Empire) - light warm pink, one of those colours that look good on everyone and go with everything
78 (Phoenix) - medium strawberry pink, this is THE perfect pink, has equal balance of cool and warm tones
73 (Imperial) - I would describe this as a dusty dark rose, surprisingly flattering on my light medium skintone.

Aaaaaand my swatches for your viewing pleasure - left to right Imperial, Coromandel, Dragon, Phoenix, Empire.

    I just did swatches too! I'm so in love with them all!

    Such a shame they're being discontinued.

    Leticia - Dragon was the first one i got 2 years ago. I really don't know why they'd get rid of such amazing formula :(

    Amira - they are awesome! I need to pick up the rest if I can find them :(

  4. Amira Says:

    Hun, if you need a CP, don't hesitate to ask, although French prices aren't that good :s

    Sorry to hear you've had a rough time of it in your personal life. The only shade of these I have is Dragon but I adore it. Why on Earth they are discontinuing these I will never know :'( x

    Claire - thanks hun, I'm trying my best to get distracted....Dragon is awesome! I hope Chanel at least replace these with something equally awesome

You make all of us makeup lovers so happy with your posts.. you're too awesome to let things affect you for too long.. roll with the punches.. see whatever it is as a learning situation that would just make you stronger in the long run!
