I built a simple look around the new Las Vegas de Chanel RCS in Brilliance:
Amore Pacific Skin Renewal Foundation (206)
Kevyn Aucoin Radiant Diaphanous Powder
Chantecaille Aqua Blush in Brilliance
Chanel Eclosion Quad: Gold color on the lids
Tarte Eyeshadow in Werewolf in the crease
YSL Shocking Gel Liner in Deep Black on the lashline
Guerlain Retractable Gold Pencil on the waterline
Guerlain Noir G Mascara
Chanel Lip Pencil in Nude
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliance
I got two items from the Las Vegas de Chanel Collection: Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliance and the Lip Pencil in Vegas Gold:
Both are a bright yellow gold… shot through with a multi shimmer. The finishes of both items are pretty sheer as well. I think they work better with other colors and formulas. The RCS works if you just want a sheer pop of gold on your lips… but it is not opaque like a lipstick (which is probably a good thing). The pencil is surprisingly warm… and wearable.
Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliance
Lip Pencil in Vegas Gold
See? Sheer. It’s actually a lot more opaque in person, but the flash pushed right through the color. Also, this combination (pencil and RCS) is good for a concept look, but a bit garish for real life. It’s very yellow and high on the sparkle. So unless you want disco-ball lips, I suggest you tone these products down in practical application with other neutral colors and formulas.
For the moment, I am passing on the Lucky Stripes Bronzer/Highlighter. Damned near $100 bucks is a LOT to ask, even if it’s from Chanel. I’m thinking about it. We’ll see.
That’s it for my Las Vegas de Chanel haul. Ciao for now!
