I should totally be vacuuming right now, but I couldn’t wait to snap a few pics of Chanel’s upcoming Holiday 2009 makeup collection (available in November).


What do you think of the colors? They’re kinda summery, yah?

    Ha Karen – I should be in the shower right now and cleaning up my messy room but here I am getting caught up on your blog! I want the tweed highlighter just to look at it – sad, huh? Are you going to try to see the new Chanel film? I love Audrey Tatou – I am hoping it’ll release in more theaters. It’s showing at the Clay just this weekend – SAD!

  5. Bisbee says:

    Galapagos looks beautiful – that one will be mine! The shadows are pretty too – kind of summery, but I might have to try them too!

    OMG, thank you so much! I’ve been dying to know what some of these look like. I got the Trapeze nail polish from the holiday set and love it. You photos have confirmed that I need that powder and lipglosses and 2 of the lipsticks.

  13. amy says:

    The Bird of Paradise quad is very pretty and it looks very Mediterranean too me. The Maldives Lipstick and Hirondelle lipgloss looks so lovely too.

    I really like the lipsticks in this collection. I’d love the quad too if I didn’t have a near-dupe for the blue and green…

    Hope the rest of your move goes smoothly 🙂

  20. Miss QQ says:

    Hi Karen. They are beautiful! I love Chanel! I can’t wait for your detailed swatches and reviews.

  21. Marina says:

    Thank you for the swatches! I like the lipsticks and glosses. I guess I should check them out. But we don’t have the holiday collection here yet.
    But yesterday got Mica glossimer 🙂

  22. Alison says:

    Oooh I want colibri gloss and either maldives or galapagos lippies, lovely collection, I’ve seen pics of the nailpolish for this release (Trapeze) and want that too!

  23. Glosslizard says:

    Very pretty, but none of it is calling my name! I like the Tasmania lippie, and Grenada (didn’t you do a lip look with it?) looks like something I might pick up and hoard until June, but honestly I’m still more charmed by some of the remaining lacque lipsticks than these! *Wallet breathes a huge sigh of relief* Finally, something I don’t want! 😛

  24. Ani says:

    I am loving the quad, def. going to check it out. The lipsticks and glosses are pretty but not really jumping out at me.

  25. Jaime says:

    That completely screams “summer” to me! I wonder if they were thinking more of a tropical holiday vacation when they created the collection?
