BOTANY FUN FACT: even though eggplant hangs out with the vegetables in the supermarket, it’s actually a fruit.

Why am I telling you this?


Well, I wouldn’t want you to be unprepared for Final Jeopardy, obvs. 🙂 Also, the new purple polish by Chanel, Charivari, just might be the most perfect eggplant I’ve ever seen.

It’s from the new Notes de Printemps (notes of spring) collection, which comes out next month. If you live near a Nordstrom, check and see if it’s already on counter. I caught a brief glimpse of it when I whizzed through the beauty department earlier this week. Unfortunately, I was running errands and didn’t have time to play. 🙁

From a quick glance, though — beautiful! There are lots of bright, intense pinks, corals and deep purples, along with some gray, ivory, peach and red.

So, Charivari, le eggplant. It seems kind of moody and melodic…like a Cure song in color.

I’m wearing two coats in this swatch, purely out of habit, but a single layer would have been fine.

    Ack – I think I need this – along with ALL of that collection *cough* Why does Chanel have to go and put out a collection full of my favourite colours right around/after Christmas?

    I opened my wallet the other day, and only a tumbleweed came out… 😉

    Hi Karen!
    Another fun fact: Charivari is a delightful old fashioned word in the French language. It means racket, as in that indistinct “grumble grumble” noise that an unhappy crowd makes, or when I would make a mess in the other room as a kid and my father would glance above his reading glasses and say “C’est quoi ce charivari?”
    Just thought i’d share 🙂
    This is the only piece of that collection that I truly have my eyes on, thanks for the review!

    I’m so glad Chanel threw some purple in the collection, and of course all that coral is calling my name! So excited about the new cream blushes! I use mine all the time!

    The color doesn’t look so unique to me, but I bet this will wind up in my collection somehow. 🙂

    This polish is one I have been stalking for weeks! I think it will be my very first creme finish Chanel. So flattering, and I bet it works for all skin tones, too. Almost a neutral. well played, Chanel!
