This entry features 3 new Chanel shades from their latest collectiom, the Collection Avant-Premiere - centred around movies and stars...hence the names, and the very classic and glamorous shades. All the formula on these polishes are richly pigmented, I applied 2 coats in each of these pictures which show the full color intensity of the polishes.
Do note that these polishes are part of the permanent collection. Though there are news that Starlet is LE. Provocation is a re-release from last year's Fashion's Night Out collection the Twin Sets. (click here to see my full review and swatches)
These are the 3 I bought to complete the collection.
Cinema - tomato red, creamy. A very soft focus glamorous red.
Paparazzi - warm plummy rosy shade with gold sheen
Starlet - peachy pink with fine shimmer
all are 2 coats, no top coat.
I think Paparazzi is my fave, it is quite unique (to me).
comparison of Chanel reds in my collection
Pirate - most cool toned, almost jelly consistency
Cinema - creamy, soft red, not as intense as Dragon, looks neutral toned compared to Dragon and Coromandel
Coromandel - one coater (but I applied 2 coats here), brightest, with slight sheen
Dragon - looks slightly cool toned here, but more neutral in real life, brighter than Cinema
I must say that Cinema applies brighter than it actually looks in the bottle.
Hope this overview has been useful.
Next on my Chanel list are the Les Beiges collection! I want the brush and the powder! Then the summer polishes....
Sorry that I haven't been able to blog much lately except spamming nail polish swatches, a little out of sorts and can't seem to get down to 'serious' blogging about makeup products and new launches. I will be fully back soon!
Thanks for reading, happy Sunday!
