Tuesday - Shopping for Chanel Candy .......





Hi Lovelies,


Err, how cold is is!??  And where is the snow? If it is this cold outside we may as well benefit from a little bit of the pretty white stuff, surely?


And so a very cold Tuesday took me off shopping with the lovely Clairey. We are not great for each other if I am completely honest - neither of us seems to have grasped the use of the word "No" but on the plus side, we do both possess a complete and utter lack of willpower ......


I needed to go check out the Chanel Make-up Counter to see what new goodies have come in for me to form an addiction to. I do believe they see me coming. 
The woman on the Chanel Counter is, quite frankly, terrifying, and is ALWAYS there. She must sleep under the counter. She looks like she has tried every single item that is currently available - all at the same time, and she has a mouth that could plunge sinks. It is massive and she covers it in lipstick to the point where I cannot look at her face and so I end up looking like I am talking to her breasts (If any guys are reading, they will think this completely normal). 
Her vacant stare is matched only by her personality, but still it doesn't stop me from buying new sweeties - She knows it and I know it - She had me at Hello ................



So these 3 goodies came home to play with Jools


The first item is a tinted moisturiser that finally seems as light as just a moisturiser, with a slight sheen to it. I will try it tomorrow and let you know the verdict. It is the Vitalumieire Aqua which is the lightest tinted moisturiser that Chanel have made to date. The price was £31





 



I chose shade B30 which is pale enough even for me ;)


3 new Nail polishes have just been released for Spring/Summer. The names are pretty easy to remember! April May and June. They are priced at £17.50 each




I bought May, which is a pale fondant pink.






And Chanel this week released a lip balm - It is completely colourless, and is a conditioning balm, it also smells great. It is priced at £19.50. I have popped it in my bag already so am looking forward to trying this one.










Shopping tires a girl out - we had lunch at Browns



Goats Cheese, Sweet Potato & Minted Pea Filo Parcel


So the end of a great day is going to be spent reading the weekly glossies with a cup of tea!





Until tomorrow

Don't work too hard now! ;-)

I love your description of the sales assistant - I will look more closely at the Chanel ladies at my local counter now!

Think I am going to go for the dark pink. Why do all Chanel ladies look like that? So funny!

Jools said...

heheee they are not quite as scary as a MAC girl, but then who is ;)

Jools said...

Yay, I want the tangerine one next. My justification is that at £17.50, its the same price as a manicure that only really lasts a week, so this is actually saving us money ........... (you can use this justification too!)

I am so upset that I didn't get to join you both and even more so when I found out so much Chanel was purchased! How rude of work getting in the way!
Was that the woman you showed me in Bentalls? I can just imagine her popping up and saying in a league of gentleman style well hellooo there!

Jools said...

We missed you my petit filous x

Yes the one who had the bad lipstick on and when she asked me if I wanted to see the new range I had to say casually, and are any of the new ones the one you are wearing ................ No, not this time she said - OK I will take them ;)
