I love Gold. I love Gold. Unless its a Gold tooth. Or a Gold Digger. Or Gold Jewellery. Then I’m more of a platinum girl myself. Otherwise, I love Gold!
Chanel’s little gold collection features 2 new nail polishes, eyeliner, some new lipsticks and 3 new lipglosses and a highlighter.
I already have buyers regret with these goods. I think it’s because whilst the products look glam and nice there wasn’t an instant rush to the head like when I see a new Lunasol or Jill Stuart Palette.
The nail polish in Gold in LE, as are the 3 glosses, as is the gold highlighter. I got:
Facettes D’Or Highlighter in Gold Fever:
It’s a proper gold, like, shimmer highlighter with a hint of colour. I don’t know WHY I got this in hindsight. It smells nice and it adds a touch of chalkish gold shimmer. On the promo shot, the model wears it at the top of her cheek bones then in a V shape to the top of her brows. Very nice but it doesn’t quite blend as well or add quite the same amount of glow in real life – its too grainy for that. £29 for the powder.
Gold Ficition is a real gold polish – it does give a lovely effect even after just one coat. Its lasting pretty well now and I’ve worn it for 2 days (hey, that’s a long time in my world). It’s £17 and comes in a opaque gold bottle. Hmmm. Do I love? Not really. It’s ok. But I’m sure it can be duped.
There are three new Glossimers that are LE for this collection; Delight, Amberlight and Gold Light. Delight is a lilac with loads of shimmer, Amberlight is a slightly opaque bronze, and Gold light is the one I got:
There’s TONS of chunky shimmer in this and this photo does it no justice – when applied it actually has a purple-pink sheen to it. I lav it! So much so that I want a dupe. It looks amazing in the light.
So that was the gold collection for me – what do you think? Autumn time is surely the time for golds!
