Chanel Review

As I've mentioned before, one of my best friends Charli is a hair stylist. The salon she works for gets to do events with different makeup counters - like Chanel. Um hello, amazing job. I had lunch with her last week and had to meet her at the Chanel counter (oh darn). And she MADE ME try a new mascara (I'm not making this stuff up, people.) And she might have given me a lip gloss. (Have I mentioned how much I love her? Do. Love her.) When I went back later that afternoon to buy the mascara (you knew that was coming), look at all the free samples they threw in! The mascara and the lip gloss are in the middle - the rest are samples! Oh, it made my day.
The gloss is a Glossimer in Brilliance. I used to have a couple of Glossimer's and they're just as great as I remembered. I put it on right after lunch :)
The mascara is Inimitable in Noir Black. This is Chanel's newest mascara and it advertises to volumize, lengthen, curl, and separate. Sounds too perfect, right? Um, it is perfect. Like I said, Charli had the makeup artist put this on me at the counter before we went to lunch. I'm not kidding you - all afternoon I couldn't stop looking at my eyelashes. Every time I'd get back in my car I'd pull the visor down, lift up my sunglasses, and look again. My lashes looked amazing! You'd better believe I booked it back to the Chanel counter and bought this before I went home that afternoon. 


What's the latest product you've fallen in love with? I want to know! :)

Go ask me a question on my formspring

I'm in love with the the new Matte Mousse Foundation, I think its Covergirl. It feels like I'm not wearing any makeup at all!

I love your blog, and I'm a follower, I hope you'll add me as a follower as well!

Can I tell you that when I get in trouble for spending mass amounts of money on Chanel make up I am going to blame you? I need you to just accept that now.

can I be friends with your friend!!! That's so cool haha, some people have all the luck! :0 Great review. Lately, I'm obsessed with Dior Mascara... but then again, it's my daily dose of love :) I still keep meaning to buy those OPI nail polishes in the fall colors I saw on your blog!

Chloe said...

Oooh, nice friend! That lip gloss looks gorgeous.

My favorite "new" product would have to be Butter London's West End Wonderland nail polish. I'm obsessed, and might be sitting here right now contemplating buying 100 bottles under the guise that, you know- what if they stop making it? and I run out? :|

Katie you hit the jackpot!! That's a pot of gold of samples!!

I'd wear that bag on my head, by the way.

I'm on the short bus in the makeup department. I used some sort of double length mascara thingy the other day. L'Oreal or something - one thing's for sure it wasn't Chanel. And that ain't right.
