Chanel Gold 2008 Collection

I love Gold. I love Gold. Unless its a Gold tooth. Or a Gold Digger. Or Gold Jewellery. Then I’m more of a platinum girl myself. Otherwise, I love Gold!

Chanel’s little gold collection features 2 new nail polishes, eyeliner, some new lipsticks and 3 new lipglosses and a highlighter.

I already have buyers regret with these goods. I think it’s because whilst the products look glam and nice there wasn’t an instant rush to the head like when I see a new Lunasol or Jill Stuart Palette.

The nail polish in Gold in LE, as are the 3 glosses, as is the gold highlighter. I got:

Facettes D’Or Highlighter in Gold Fever:

It’s a proper gold, like, shimmer highlighter with a hint of colour. I don’t know WHY I got this in hindsight. It smells nice and it adds a touch of chalkish gold shimmer. On the promo shot, the model wears it at the top of her cheek bones then in a V shape to the top of her brows. Very nice but it doesn’t quite blend as well or add quite the same amount of glow in real life – its too grainy for that. £29 for the powder.

Gold Ficition is a real gold polish – it does give a lovely effect even after just one coat. Its lasting pretty well now and I’ve worn it for 2 days (hey, that’s a long time in my world). It’s £17 and comes in a opaque gold bottle. Hmmm. Do I love? Not really. It’s ok. But I’m sure it can be duped.

There are three new Glossimers that are LE for this collection; Delight, Amberlight and Gold Light. Delight is a lilac with loads of shimmer, Amberlight is a slightly opaque bronze, and Gold light is the one I got:

There’s TONS of chunky shimmer in this and this photo does it no justice – when applied it actually has a purple-pink sheen to it. I lav it! So much so that I want a dupe. It looks amazing in the light.

So that was the gold collection for me – what do you think? Autumn time is surely the time for golds!

  1. any swatches on the lip gloss we can see?

  2. When the promo pics of the collection came out i was lemming the powder Facettes D’Or real bad, but i figured it wouldn’t look good on my pale skin for normal day use. Too bad cause i love gold…so i went for Nars instead

  3. I too thought all the gold bits were a bit “meh” but Kaleidoscope is amazing. It’s such a unique colour, even my husband (who is blind to any make up except red lipstick) was like “wow! Let me see your nails again…” I already bought 2 back up’s, it’s selling out fast in London

  4. Pikko – yes, I’ll get one up for ya!

  5. Hey Makeup Fairy

    What Nars did ya get? Yeah – I am sort of regretting the Facet’s D’or. Its not as nice as Nars Albartross if you ask me!

  6. Hey Medina

    Oooh I didn’t check out Kalediscope – they said it wasn’t LE so I figured out it could wait a while. However, they could be lying, if so then I need some…
