Chanel Reve D 'Orient Eyeshadow Quad



It's time to get starry eyed with Chanel's new Reve D'Orient Quadra Eyeshadow.

This new quad, which makes it debut on December 1st, is embossed with stars on each of the colors and will give all your holiday looks some sparkle.


Something fellow beauty enthusiasts will understand, I was anxious to try it, I didn't think to take pics before I swatched. So the stars got a little worn . When you pop that compact open after removing from the box, it glows.

The four shades here, white/beige, gold, deep brown and black are all wearable and go well together or separately and they all have good pigment, deep really except for the white which is a little lighter.  There is some fallout but not much. They apply smooth and deep on the first pass.


Reve D'Orient is LE and $ 70. On December 1st it will be available on chanel.com with free overnight shipping on it's purchase.

L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream



Dry skin ? With Jack Frost doing his thing really early and in a  big way, our epidermis is bound to feeling a little parched.

L'Occitane has a cream to the rescue for those with  drier skins, new Immortelle Precious Cream , an update/upgrade from their Precious Cream .  This thick cream is loaded with hydrators like shea butter, sunflower seed, evening primrose and borage seed oils  .


It also helps to firm and smooth skin with two patents pending and  an oily extract from the Immortelle Flower. 


This is one of the products that just feels so comfortable on skin , it smoothes right in , and while heavier , sinks in fast .  Dehydrated skin should love it. 

L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream is $62 at  L'Occitane

MAC X Giambattisa Valli


Are you ready to talk Summer 2015 ?  Yes, yes,it's a ways off, but it also brings the newest MAC designer collab with Giambattista Valli.

Vogue broke the news last Friday of the five new lipsticks and I believe  also lipgloss shades that will hit stores next Summer.

Spring '15 RTW
I generally like what Valli shows during fashion week and always check out the looks, but for those less immersed in fashion, you still may have heard of him as newlywed Amal Alamuddin Clooney wore one of his  couture creations the day after her uber press covered wedding in Venice  .

Fall '14 Couture

New here are lipstick tubes that match the inside shade and they will be matte.
I think all the vibrant colors look great and would love to get my hands on them now, especially that deep plum .
