Oh, the sweet, sweet joy of the animal cookie/cracker…
I know it’s so 37-going-on-13, but I derive great pleasure from biting off their heads.
It’s just so satisfying!
Sometimes I’ll start by nibbling off their toes, tails or tums, but it never feels quite as right as a swift beheading.
Um…hold on a second while I add that to my list of “Sentences that inadvertently make me sound like a serial killer.”
You know what else is really satisfying? Chanel’s new Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Frivole ($43) from their spring collection.
My goodness, lovie! Wearing it has been almost as satisfying as the feeling I felt when I finished decapitating an entire tin of shortbread scottie dog cookies!
It’s the only blush in the new 22-piece Printemps PrÃ©cieux de Chanel Spring 2013 Collection, and granted, it is expensive, but if you’re 1) already tanned, 2) tan easily, or 3) love bronzer so much that if you were down to your last pan, b*tches would have to pry it out of your cold, dead hands before you’d ever give it up, you’ll love how this looks on your cheeks.
Frivole is one of those blushes that looks almost unwearable in its pan. SO BRIGHT! But I think it looks much less intense on the skin.
On cheeks, it’s a warm, sun-soaked apricot with a satin finish. Wearing it, you’ll look like you just got back from a vacation where you spent the week reading Us Weekly under a beach umbrella somewhere sunny and warm.
It should be very flattering if you have warm undertones and/or tend to tan easily.
I think it’s absolutely beautiful, beachy and relaxed (I usually wear one or two layers), and it’s also smoother than Jeremy Renner when he hosted SNL. I’ve got these wicked winter dry patches on my cheeks, and Frivole never catches on flakes or looks patchy, and it lasts all day long on bare skin or atop foundation/tinted moisturizer.
Another thing, like the other Chanel Joues Contraste blushes, it has a fairly strong rosy scent, so if you’re sensitive to that kind of thing, you may want to sniff test before bringing it home.
Personally, I love the fragrance and find the act of brushing this blush on my cheeks strangely thrilling and satisfying! It’s the little extras like this that make me fall deeper in love with Chanel with every new collection…
