The Chanel holidays 2021 beauty collection is here! This holiday season, Chanel is celebrating their iconic fragrance, Chanel No. 5. The entire holiday beauty collection is centered around Chanel No. 5 by offering classic hues, and Chanel No. 5 themed packaging. Love it!

This year, the Chanel nail polish holidays 2021 collection consists of one, iconic red nail polish which offers pinkish and cherry undertones. This is a classic red which is in theme with the timeless beauty collection Chanel has given us for the holidays 2021 season. It’s beautiful, classic, and iconic. Love!

There are several colors of lipstick for the holiday season, and additional make-up options, in Chanel’s holidays 2021 beauty collection. I invested in one lipstick, the fabulous bottle of edp, and this classic nail polish.

Without further ado, here is what I purchased from the Chanel holidays 2021 beauty collection, Chanel No. 5.

Chanel nail polish holidays 2021 | Chanel Rouge Intemporel

How pretty is Chanel Rouge Intemporel nail polish for the holiday 2021 season? I love it! This cherry hue is classic and feminine. It’s a great investment red to wear now, and all year long. If you like a little sparkle for the holidays, check out this top coat from Dior.

I tested out Chanel Rouge Intemporel nail polish with one base coat, and two coats of color. As with all Chanel’s nail polishes, the Chanel nail polish holidays 2021 collection is chip resistant, and it goes on streak free. This is a cream polish with a shiny finish. Love!

Chanel lipstick holidays 2021 | Chanel Rouge Allure Rouge Brulant

Normally I gravitate towards sheer lipsticks, but this cream lipstick from Chanel for the holiday season was too pretty to pass up. The Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick for the holiday 2021 season includes five colors. I picked up Chanel Rouge Brulant which is a pinkish red hue. I love how it compliments the Chanel nail polish holidays 2021 hue. Chanel Rouge Brulant offers more pink than Chanel Rouge Intemporel nail polish, and I feel like it’s the right mix of pink and red for a festive holiday season.

As usual, the Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick collection offers moisture, and does not dry out the lips. It goes on smoothly, without clumping or running. This is the holy grail of cream lipstick.

Chanel No. 5 EDP limited edition holidays 2021

For the holiday 2021 season, Chanel has created a beauty collection themed around the iconic Chanel No. 5 fragrance collection. As part of the collection, there are EDT and EDP offerings. I chose the EDP as I prefer a slightly stronger, and longer lasting, fragrance experience.

The Chanel No 5 holiday bottle comes in a bottle shaped box with an elastic emblem at the top. This is a beautiful way to store the bottle, especially if you store your fragrances in an area with light.

Pro tip: always store fragrances in a dark, dry area to preserve them, and allow them, to last for years. This means keeping them out of the bathroom. I keep mine in a hall closet away from the bathrooms.

Since this collection is limited edition, and celebrates the iconic Chanel No. 5 fragrance collection, it will make a great holiday gift for the beauty and Chanel fan on your list! I guess I gave this collection to myself for Christmas. haha

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy National Lipstick Day 2021! This is always such a fun day, because we can celebrate our favorite lipsticks, and maybe indulge in a new one or two! Love that!

Let me share my favorite lipsticks with you. I am a huge fan of this Dior lipstick, the ShadeM liquid lipsticks, and all of Chanel’s Coco Rouge line. My favorite’s from 2021 are pictured above.

My favorite types of lipsticks are sheer, with just the right drop of color; although, sometimes I love wearing a pigment lipstick such as the liquid lipsticks from ShadeM.

What are your favorite lipsticks? Do you prefer cream, sheer, or gloss?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a fabulous National Lipstick Day 2021!

The Dior summer 2021 nail polish collection from the Dior Summer Dune beauty collection is here! I love this line of nail hues because it combines vivid, classic colors with unexpected summer shades. Love that!

In the world of nail polish, we started the year off with fresh takes on classic polish colors. As we move into the summer season, we are still seeing edgier variations of timeless nail polish hues as well as a few unexpected colors for the season. I am here for it!

Dior is one of the first designers to release their summer nail polish collection. At least, of the nail polish brands I watch, purchase, and wear, but I digress. . . Let’s take a closer look at each of the nail polish colors in Dior’s summer 2021.

Dior nail polish summer 2021: Dior Mirage

Dior Mirage nail polish for summer 2021 is a bright orange polish. This is the color you want if you like bold, look-at-me hues. I love this color for warm, summer beach days and events. It will also be a fun color to wear if you enjoy wearing white summer dresses and want to add a little pop to your look. Mirage is not for the faint of heart!

I tested Dior Mirage nail polish with one base coat and two coats of colors. It went on smoothly without streaking. Mirage is a cream polish. Love!

Dior nail polish summer 2021 Dior Hasard

For the summer season, Dior has a classic nail polish color to offer with Hasard. This reddish-pink is perfect for a timeless nail look as it is a bright take on a standby color. It’s very pretty, and it is easy to wear with any color palette you choose for your wardrobe this summer season. This is also a good choice if you work in a traditional environment with a dress code.

Dior Hasard is a cream polish which I tested with one base coat and two coats of color. It does not streak and applies smoothly. Love that!

Dior nail polish summer 2021: Dior Dune

I am in love with Dior Dune nail polish for the summer 2021 season! This is a dark, neutral polish, with a pink undertone. Dune is a fabulous neutral which can replace any nude polish you might be wearing. It is bold, yet can fly under the radar; making it perfect to wear at the office and everyday. If you work in an environment with a dress code, this polish will be perfect for you. I plan to wear this color the most out of all the shades in the collection. Love!

I tested out Dior Dune with one base coat and two coats of colors. This cream polish applies smoothly without streaking. It’s a winner!

Dior nail polish summer 2021: Dior Desert Nights

You know I always love a blue hue! When I spotted Desert Nights in the Dior nail polish summer 2021 collection, my heart skipped a beat. I feel like blue has been left out of so many nail polish collections in the last few seasons. Seriously, I was suffering blue nail polish withdrawal!

Normally in the summer months, we see bright blue nail polish colors, and often times we will see sparkling hues; especially from Chanel. This summer, Dior went in an unexpected direction and gave us an obviously fall blue hue. Dior Desert Nights mimics the night sky in a clear desert without light pollution. This night sky is deep, dark, and uninterrupted by street lights and human activity. So of course the nail polish created to mimic this sky would be a dark blue; it is just an unexpected shade of blue for the summer season, but who cares, I am here for it! I am also wearing Desert Nights as I type this post!

I tested out Dior Desert Nights with one base coat and two coats of color. This too, is a cream polish. Oftentimes with darker cream polishes we see streaking, not with Desert Nights! I was thrilled to see two coats was enough to create a smooth, even color on my nails. Love that!

One last thought on Dior Desert Nights nail polish; if you are looking for an investment polish to carry you through the summer, and well into the fall season, this is a great choice. Desert Nights by Dior is an autumn blue, so you can continue to wear it for many months ahead. Love investment polishes!

Dior Addict Lacquer Stick Nude Desert

The Dior beauty collection for summer 2021 includes two lacquer sticks; Nude Desert and Mirage. I only purchased Nude Desert because Mirage was a little too coral for me. Dior Nude Desert lacquer stick lipstick is a fabulous neutral for the summer season. It adds just a hint of color and moisturizes the lips. This color is understated and will play well with any summer clothing I wear. It will also play well with any color I put on my nails! Love that!

If you are looking for a fabulous neutral lipstick this summer, Dior Nude Desert lacquer stick is it! It is a great color to wear daily, and if you work in an environment with a dress code, this is a classic, understated hue you can wear to the office daily.
