Finally, Taboo is here... after a few months of looking around, and detecting its presence at our local counters. Thanks to Mabel, I managed to get it when I was totally stuck at work everyday the past week. It is a brilliant shade of deep metallic purple base, with multi color shimmer bits of red, purple and some blue. Some of the larger sparkling bits actually do show up after application. It is perfectly oqaque in two coats. I am very happy to add this to my collection.
I am also receiving many requests to review the Chanel Les Beiges collection, which is currently available at the ION and MBS chanel stores, but will be available at all Chanel counters over this weekend. I will be waiting a while to get the Les Beiges...and will definitely post my review and thoughts once I am done. Meanwhile Mable has a very comprehensive overview of the collection, so be sure to check out her blog and YT channel!
The inevitable comparison to Malice - one of my fave Chanel polishes -
Actually, I think I might prefer Malice - the smooth intense formula and that rich red..
Taboo might be in the same famliy of deep rich metallic purples like Illamasqua Baptise and NARS Purple Rain.
Hope this entry has been helpful, and thanks for looking!
