One chilly afternoon, three BFFs came up with a plan to survive the cloudy skies and biting cold of winter.
The three of them — Jacquelyn (pronounced Zhack-LEEN), Celeste and Lana — had known each other for years, having met at a crowded Chanel Master Class in the city.
The classes soon became a yearly ritual. This year, they went hoping to play with the lovely Aqualumiere Glosses.
Surrounded by Chanel, their minds wandered to warmer weather…
“I know!” said Lana, a pile of Glossimers on the desk beside her, “Let’s go to Kauai!”
So, the three friends booked a week-long tropical getaway together, pledging to leave their cares (and the cold) behind.
They left right away, boarding a plane dressed for success — strappy sandals, bikinis, bright sundresses and, tucked away inside their luggage, the latest Aqualumiere Glosses from Chanel (Holiday 2009, $27 each).
All three shiny and sheer, non-sticky glosses are just the things for a tropical getaway.
Jacquelyn, the outgoing flirt, loved shimmery coral Canari. With it on, she knew no man could resist her charms (or her Brazilian-cut bikini).

Celeste, the shy bookworm with a wild streak, fell for shimmery pink Hirondelle.

Quick-witted Lana’s penchant for sarcasm often landed her in trouble at bars and baseball games — the only two places she loved more than Disneyland. A fanatic for smokey eyes and nude lips, she opted for sheer beige Colibri.

As the plane climbed above the gray, damp city below, the friends felt their cares float away…
Raising three champagne-filled plastic cups, they made a toast:
“To the girls who always have my back,” said Celeste.
“To another exciting adventure,” said Jacquelyn.
“And to our three super hot new Aqualumieres!” said Lana.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Chanel just posted a video online of yesterday’s Spring/Summer 2010 Ready-to-Wear Fashion Show in Paris. I’m loving the shoes, the pinkish beige lips on the models and the big ol’ bale of haaaay in the middle of the floor.
