Would ya’ll like to meet the newest members of Chanel’s family? This here’s little Delight (she’s a sweetheart), and that over there is Gold Light. They’re both shining stars in Chanel’s fall 2008 makeup collection.
Fall may be months away, but the collection just arrived at Chanel counters nationwide. I fell in love with five of the products in this release — two of the Glossimers (Delight and Gold Light), Facettes D’Or Highlighter in Gold Fever and two of the lipsticks (Pepeete and Formentera).
Facettes D’Or Highlighter in Gold Fever
Pepeete (on top) and Formentera, Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshines
In the Chanel fall 2008 sneak peak a couple weeks ago I talked about a few of the fall items — Rouge Hydrabase Lipstick in Great Copper, Jouse Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Dust and Pretty Pink Lip Definer. Here are swatches of the remaining products, all now available for purchase at Nordstrom and online through Chanel.com

Even More Chanel Fall 2008
Fantastic nail polish
Gold Fiction nail polish
I also really dig the Enthusiast lipstick, the Bois Blue and Le Bronze Soft Touch Eyeshadow singles, and the Kaleidioscope nail polish.
Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for my wallet), the quad didn’t move me like I’d hoped it would. I like the dark green shade, but I think the other three colors fall a little flat.
My local Chanel counter sales rep told me the Facettes D’Or Highlighter is goin’ fast, and there were only six of them left after barely a week on sale! That one has bestseller written all over it.
What’s the verdict, friends? How do you feel about Chanel’s fall 2008 collection?
Enough about makeup (j/k!), how was your day? I’m back from the mall now, waiting for tonight’s Real World to start.
