The Crazy-For-Chanel Haul of November 2010!

Firstly, I want to say sorry for being such an awful blogger recently! No posts for almost a month! Even I am completely horrified at myself for this complete lack of posting! My only excuse is that I am in my final year of university doing History so am completely swamped with reading and essaying at all times, but now I have handed in all my assignments for Christmas I have a complete week before going home to do as I wish so will make up for the lack of contact this month!

Anyway, skipping along happily, this post is about the Chanel haul that I got for my 21st birthday (plus my beloved Chanel lipgloss that I bought last year to start the Chanel obsession) in November. In those timeless black and white bags you know something good is coming, so when I started unwrapping to find several of those excitement did start to set in. Now I don't know about you, but I am just the teensiest bit in love with Chanel, have been for many a year and already have the plan that when the first real paycheck comes through a Chanel bag will be bought even if it means starving for a month... But that may just be me! It's the timelessness of their products that makes me adore Chanel so, that despite however much fashion changes over the decades and how much companies change their products to keep up with the style, Chanel continue to produce the same classy, sophisticated and timeless beauty that is attached to that period of the 1940s and 50s - which is my period.

So this is what has now been added to my little Chanel stash:

Left to Right: Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour in 19 Gabrielle, Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Charming, Natural Finish Pressed Power in 20 Clair - Translucent, Chance Eu Tendre perfume and finally the double faced mirror in it's little velvet pouch.

So there it is all together, and to be honest with you I try to not use it too much but keep them in their pouches, using only on very special occasions. Silly, I know, but I just cannot bring myself to use them all up! Anyone, some close ups of the products:

 I love the amount of detail that goes into their products, that they carve it into the lipstick itself, and they do the same with the powder! But as a comment on the lipstick itself, it is definitely worth the buy! The price tag is still a shock to the system, as all Chanel is, but it is long lasting, very soft and moisturizes the lips and is such a beautiful colour. It's the perfect 1950s shade which goes with my look so was very happy with it, and not just for the CC.

The powder is lovely too, goes on very smoothly and being translucent it just works to give you that matte, fair look that I aim to achieve the 1940s/50s look. The lipgloss is really beautiful as it's not too pale but isn't a deep, rich colour so if you are going for a dramatic eye look it works really well as it gives your lips a shine but emphasises your eyes even more. Finally, the perfume, it's just gorgeous. It's a floral scent but quite delicate and fresh so a very spring scent! It lasts all day and it does not change throughout the day when on. One of the best perfumes I have ever had.

So there we go, that's my rather long post on the Chanel haul that the 21st brought in! Hope you found it interesting and there is someone out there who shares the passion with Chanel otherwise this is a very boring post for you (sorry!). But yesh, hope you liked it :)
