FOTD: Matte Smoke

I wanted something matte with serious staying power today. NARS Thunderball eyeshadow is always a perfect choice for a grey matte smoke:

MAC Paint Pot in Painterly (base)
NARS Eyeshadow in Thunderball(lids)
MAC Eyeshadow in Stovepipe Black (crease)
Rock & Republic Eyeshadow in Tribal (brows)
Estee Lauder Doublewear Light (5.0)
Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer in 01
MAC Blush Sur
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Bonheur

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine: Rebelle, Canotier, Monte Carlo, Bonheur

Here are a few more swatches:

Rebelle looks like it’s very pigmented in the tube… but goes on a sheer reddish/pinkish/orange. Hard to describe the color. It’s bold, but sheer. Nice for when you just want a pop of color. Not as nice as Sari d’Eau in my opinion.

Canotier is a PERFECT, IDIOT-PROOF NUDE! I can put this on in the car, in the dark… wherever. It’s pretty hard to get wrong. I love it. So sheer, but with a hint of shimmer. Just enough to give your lips a pop. I am getting a backup. I’m not kidding.

Monte Carlo is an unexpected strawbery pink. Really lovely. Perfect alone or with the Chanel Framboise lip liner. I didn’t think I would like this… but I really do. Keeper.

Bonheur is just so pretty! Its a bright, sheer pink. Reminds me a lot of the Guerlain Rouge G Lipstick in Fuchsia… with a better smell. The rose smell is just divine, and really fitting for this color in particular. Love it!

Whew… that’s eight colors so far. I would love to try and swatch (on lips) all 20 (that I can count, including the Neimans and Saks exclusives). We’ll see.

Ciao for now!
