Like Death Warmed Up…

emilyUgh. I seem to have caught a cold. I blame my recent plane ride and gross gross GROSS RECYCLED AIR! GAH! I switched seats at the last second and I SWEAR the lady next to me had a cough. I’m blaming her. Yup. Because it makes me feel better. That’s it and that’s all.

I never get sick. Like, once every million years. No joke. This sucks. I have no motivation to do anything…

Nothing excites me. Not even Chanel’s new Autumn Collection:

chanel autumnIt’s SUCH a gorgeous collection. Really. Stunning from beginning to end. I pulled myself together long enough to do an FOTD. Swatches are coming. That takes a little more effort, so I gotta feel better first. Anyway, here it is:

chanel aw15 1 chanel aw15 2 chanel aw15 3That’s the quad, blush and Meloncolie Rouge Allure Shine. LOVE this collection. It’s really lovely for every skin tone. That blush is everything. New favorite for this coming season, and easily beyond. I really thought I’d like that orange Illusion d’Ombre… but NO. It’s some garish shade of pinky coral that just goes ashy and looks a hot mess on me, so it was a definite pass. But nearly everything else is stunning. Give the collection a look. You’re bound to find at least one thing that makes the grade. I’ll bet it’s the blush. Prove me wrong… 😉

  1. Oof! Sorry to hear you’re not feeling well. Getting sick in the summer is especially sucky. I agree that this collection is gorgeous. But that blush did not work for me (NC50). My skin seems to swallow up the base color of the blush and what I mainly get is gold glitter. Not microshimmer….Glitter!!! 😖😥 I actually hate it. My first JC that I will be returning as there is no way that I can make this work. Tried different brushes and different levels of blending. I was beyond disappointed. The quad and eyeliners made up for it though. Love the look you created though and the blush looks amazing on you. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Thank you so much Helen! I feel like absolute crap, but I do feel this madness breaking up in my chest and trying to move away from me. Ugh.
    I’m so sorry that the blush did not work for you! 😦
    It is my true favorite of the collection. The quad is stunning, so I’m glad you like it. I passed on the grey eyeliner because I honestly don’t even use the ones that I have. But I loved the others.

  3. The new Chanel blush IS everything! I ordered the rouge coco shine lippies and the blush immediately and received them today. I do like the lipsticks but the blush is outstanding! Like the discontinued Accent but warmer and a shade lighter. Heavenly! Hope you are feeling much better!

    1. Thank you so much! I’m on the mend still, but I’m MUCH better than when I made that post. Now I’m just pushing the last strains of this madness away from me. 🙂
