  3. These colours are so beautiful. The Armani powder looks absolutely stunning.

    Thank you for the great swatches. My bank balance is certainly going to take a bit of a bashing...!

  5. I love those colors! I'm curious about Le MdB Whisper. Can it be used as a blush or is it more of a sheer highlighter?

  6. Such an absolutely gorgeous, stunning, elegant collection of shades and potential looks.

    I wish that I could wear them; I'm NW20-25 and these colors disappear on my skin. But for those gals who are lighter and darker, the look is pure luxe but simple too.

  9. I loved this post! How do you wear Gel? I've had it for such a long time but still can't seem to figure out how to make it work on me.

  12. I love this post, as everyone else does, and I also want to say that I love Eileen's choice of words to describe the colors :-) So eloquent, and such a good match for your images, Sabrina :-)

  13. This is why neutrals can never be boring and you make me need more of these gorgeous shades in my collection. I like how these products can be used all year round. x

  15. Gorgeous!!! I wish I could find a dupe for MAC's Naked pigment. I think it's the most gorgeous color on earth for highlighting, but the SPARKLES! Ugh.

    I also have the same question as Tabi about LMdB Whisper - blush or highlight?

  16. The Le Metier de Beaute Whisper looks absolutely stunning! Must give that one a try!

  17. Everything looks so beautiful!! :-) I find the MAC shades like Gel do wonders to liven up and make some of my darker lipsticks more wearable.

  19. I tried on the Whisper highlighter yesterday after seeing your swatch, and I love it! Thank you so much for the inspiring photos. Also, I've been using Chanel TI liquid after reading about here, and I also love it, but yesterday an SA told me that it is being discontinued. What do you recommend as a substitute?

  20. Hi Sabrina,
    Do happen to know anything about this new nail polish by Chanel which apparently will be called Riva?
    Cheers,
    Carla

  21. Lovely Cham-pale-y post!! These colors look so flattering on your skin tone. The only shade in this family that I wear often and find flattering on my skintone is the Edward Bess Sunlight highlighter. I think I actually like it better than the Afterglow shade..

  22. I've been a bad blogger neglecting all my reader comments. I apologize. Thank you everyone for stopping by - those who asked questions, here are the answers:

    Tabi/Estelle - I believe Whisper is more of a highlighter, but now it's currently listed under the Blush Section on Neimans.com.

    WillWorkForMakeup - I always use Gel with MAC HoneyB. Lipliner and top it with clear lipglass. By iteself, it's way too pale. HTH some!

    Tabi - I heard the same rumor but haven't confirmed. I'm really sad if the Chanel TI is going to be discontinued. I have no substitute. Right now I'm just trying to stock up on a few I hope will last me at least a year.

    Carla L - I don't know much about Chanel Riva except check Lacquerized's Blog for swatches and info and also Cafe Makeup for the preview.

  23. I'm a big fan of shimmer nudes/pales as well and all the items looks so gorgeous. They remind me of a photo shoot in a glossy mag haha.

    Great job with the post Sabrina.

  24. agreed! these are fabulous for a monotone canvas. i have a question - where do you buy your NARS refills? and how much less are they than the regular shadows? thank you!

  25. There is a beautiful Gold/nude that I use for every day use. I always get so many compliments on it. Its from Lancome the color is called Amande Sucree and it comes in a gloss and lipstick. I normally would just use the gloss but every now and then if I really want to draw attention to my lips I'll use both.
