Chanel Nor Et: Chanel Paris-Shanghai Makeup Collection

Mmmm Chanel Paris-Shanghai Makeup Collection has my eye this morning! Such basic colors we all have in our makeup library but we probably never considered pairing them up in such a a dramatic fashion right?


For example that golden french manicure with black tips, has it crossed your mind to pair the two up? Or that shimmering gold lid with that drama black lined eye…betcha didn’t think of that either?

That’s why we need Chanel. They remind us that simplicity combined with a little drama is the order of business for Spring 2010.


  • Chanel Ligne et Ombre de Chanel in Jet-Gold (matte black eyeliner and sparkling gold eyeshadow) $45


  • Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Black Velvet (matte black nail color in a frosted bottle) $25
  • Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Gold Lamé (satiny gold nail color) $25
  • Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Illusion d‘or (transparent sparkling gold nail color) $25

Whatcha think?

Black and gold are simply stunning but not sure how I feel about it for Spring. I’m indulging in the shadow for sure!

How about you?

Loves it?

Leaves it?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I love nailpolish on the model! But it doesn’t feel like spring with the black.

  • Kristina

    I wish they sold that gold shadow separately. I have more black eyeliner than I know what to do with!

    • the Muse

      I have to agree Kristina, and chanel at that 😀 I have three of their liner cakes so another one is a little crazy 😀

  • Comrade_Garlic

    I love gold and black in spring. The problem with this collection is the promo picture. Good gravy who did the makeup? It’s horrible. Lighter on the brows and less black liner would of helped, maybe then it would look springy.

    • the Muse

      mmm agreed comrade it’s a very strong look more evening than Spring for me 😛

  • Hithlain

    I’m going to have to try this myself tomorrow. I love the fun colors together!

  • Vanessa

    For a second, I thought I was looking at a pic of Madonna from the 90s lol.

    That aside, I like the light orange and yellow eyeshadow combo on her. Not crazy about the black tips with gold, though.

    • the Muse

      ha vanessa kinda yes 😀 I like the eyes too, I’m not a nail girl so kinda thinkin’ the nails are whimsical but prob won’t wear ’em myself since I am so not a nail girl 😀


    I don’t use nail polish ever but My twin does >:)

    I love the bumblebee colours so pretty and different!!! hopefully I can see the eyeshadow thing in person before purchasing….

  • Nia

    I really like the looks for this collection, very un-chanel I think.
    Likey 🙂

    How are things at your side?!

  • Robyn

    times like this i wished nail varnish stayed on my nails cause those nails are awesome

    its no joke i have tried everything but it refuses nailvarnish it doesnt chip it just lifts off my nail often in one piece (trying to stick it back on with topcoat doesnt work that well btw) my nails are pretty curved could be why

    i love this look i know everyones saying its not that spring like but who cares its awesome !

    • the Muse

      I agree robyn the look is rocking! it’s not too spring for me but I don’t care, love GOLD!

  • Su

    I don’t like the makeup…I think hair is horrible as well…
    brows are too thick and long for the eye and skin looks a bit dry and patchy..more like you put makeup on zombie…
