Roses Ultimes de Chanel Haul and Swatches

Chanel has a new collection out with Glossimers and nail polishes, so I of course had to check it out and here's what I ended up with:

I got Le Crayon Levres lipliner in 49 Rose Corail, Le Vernis nail polish in 541 Tentation and 3 Levres Scillianted glossimers in 166 Amour, 168 Desir and 169 Jalouse. Now I'm not too sure if any of these are at all limited edition, I believe they're not, but I might be wrong. There are actually 6 glossimers and 4 nail polishes in the collection, but I was very restrained and only got these. The other shades were much lighter and less pigmented. I especially love Jalouse, it's such a gorgeous shade of fuchsia pink, and Tentation is what I imagined Rouge Carat nail polish (holiday 2011) to be like. Rouge Carat is red with fuchsia sparkles whereas Tentation is fuchsia itself. I haven't worn it yet, but it looks gorgeous in the bottle.

I also picked up Rose Corail lipliner which is not part of the collection, but the lady in front of me was getting some lipliners as well and a few were on the counter... and somehow I ended up with this one. It's a very pretty coral pink, darker than Mac Shore Leave prolongwear lip pencil, but has a similar texture. I wore it under Amour glossimer and it was lovely.

The lip pencil is £17.50 and you get 1 g which is slightly less than Mac prolongwear lip pencils (but it comes with a free pencil sharpener), the glossimers are £20 and you get 5.5 g (not sure how many ml that is), and the nail polish is £17.50 and you get 13 ml for your money. So yeah, not cheap. But then this is Chanel.

  1. Always love your hauls. This collection arrived rather late to the uk. Is the summer collection out yet?

    1. Thank you. :) I did wonder if we were ever getting. The summer collection is out Friday 25th. Are you planning on buying much from it? I think I'll only get the bronzers.
