I’m really excited to show you guys these 2 products from Chanel.
I received the ‘Le Vernis Bel-Argus’ & the ‘Stylo Eyeshadow Black Stream’ from the Chanel Summer 2013 collection to try out.
The blue nail polish 'Bel-Argus' is this gorgeous metallic blue color that, when in direct sunlight, seems to have millions of small glitter particles. Although the nail polish is a semi-dark blue color, it still has something ‘fresh’ about it. It reminds me of the Mediterranean Sea. I think that it would be amazing to pair it with crisp white beach clothes. The nail polish is limited edition (23 Euro). Check out my instagram (@fashionwise) later today for a picture of me wearing this gorge nail polish!
The other product that I got to try out is the ‘Stylo Eyeshadow’ in Black Stream. Black Stream is a really dark black with tiny glitter particles. When I swatched this eyeshadow stick on my hand I noticed that it was really ‘wet’ (if this makes any sense to you ;-) ) . This really surprised me J. Normally eye shadow sticks from other brands like MAC , Maxfactor , etc feel creamy but still kind of dry… . This Chanel eye shadow stick felt ‘wet’ but after a few seconds I noticed that it dries and sets like a semi-matte eye shadow. This is really good news (makeup artist talking here ;-) )! Why, you wonder? Well, a cream eye shadow that feels ‘wet’ when applying it onto the eye lid gives you the time to blend and correct before the cream sets and turns into a matte shadow. Hello, convenient J ! This eye shadow stick is limited edition as well, so get it while you still can ;-) (28 Euro)
