Chanel has a new lipstick! Get excited!! The new Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick collection is a hydrating and plumping lipstick line which offers strong pigmentation and shine. Love!

I don’t do fillers, so plumping lipsticks are always a fun way to plump up the lips. Normally, when I try a plumping lipstick, there is a tingling sensation as the lipstick has an ingredient which irritates the lip skin, which in turn, makes the lips plump up. Chanel would never do that to us. There is nothing irritating about this lipstick. That being said, I didn’t really see a plumping effect either. So, there’s that. . .

This lipstick does do something which I love. Chanel’s Rouge Coco Bloom lipsticks offer the pigmentation of a cream lipstick combined with the moisture and shine of their regular rouge coco lipstick collection. This makes the Rouge Coco Bloom lipstick collection the best of both worlds; pigment and moisture. Love that!

I am a huge fan of Chanel’s various rouge coco lipstick lines. They are always moisturizing, and they offer the right color when I need it. If you are looking for a lightweight lipstick with strong pigmentation, but don’t want to wear a liquid lipstick or a cream lipstick, then this is your new lipstick!

For spring, I purchased three colors, which you can see above. I plan on purchasing lipstick from this collection again in future seasons. The pigmentation combined with the lightweight, moisturizing formula, makes this a great alternative to a cream lipstick. Love!

ShadeM Beauty liquid lipstick review

ShadeM Beauty liquid lipsticks C/O ShadeM: online here /

ShadeM Beauty is a fabulous company which creates beautiful make-up that can worn by, and enjoyed by, anyone of any shade. Love that!

Created by beauty experts with over seventeen years of experience in the industry, ShadeM Beauty was created with a love for make-up. The founders have mixed-ethnicities, and knew there was a void in the industry with so few beauty brands representing all ethnicities and skin tones; as well as being represented through visual identity and stories.

Liquid Lipstick is perfect for days and occasions when you want your lip color to stay put; without drying out your skin. What I love about ShadeM Beauty is that their liquid lipstick does exactly that; it stays put, offers vibrant color, and doesn’t dry out the lips. Love!

There is a shade for everyone at ShadeM Beauty. Whatever your skin tone, there are many colors which will work with your coloring. Their color offerings also work with any type of personal style. If your style is California Casual like me, there are toned down hues you will love (like me!), and if you enjoy pushing the style envelope, there are bold hues for you too! I love a brand which offers something for everyone.

My skin tone is medium, and my personal style is on the conservative and casual side. I consider my personal style to be California Casual with a touch of glam. For my medium skin tone, 100% of my ancestors came from Italy, so while my skin isn’t as olive as my Mother’s, it still has a Mediterranean tone. My two favorite hues from ShadeM Beauty are Vivid 8 and Desrose 10. Vivid is a fun pink for going out and Desrose is perfect for all my Zoom calls, and my future in-person businesses events.

Speaking of video conference meetings and calls, ShadeM Beauty offers vivid hues which look great on-screen. If you take a lot of video calls, or enjoy filming videos, these liquid lipsticks look amazing on camera as well as in person.

Chanel Perles et Eclats spring 2021 nail polish

Chanel nail polish spring 2021 take two! The Act II beauty collection for spring 2021 has arrived. This collection has a traditional Chanel theme; pearls. The beauty collection contains eye make-up, nail polish, several lipsticks, powder, and glow sticks. I purchased the eye quad, one of the rouge coco flash hues, and of course, the Perles et Eclats de Chanel nail polish collection.

The two nail polish hues from the Perles et Eclats de Chanel beauty collection are fabulous alternatives to the Chanel spring 2021 nail polish collection. If the spring nail polish hues were too bold for you, these colors are more feminine, subdue, and traditional for the spring 2021 season.

Chanel Perle Blanche is a sparkling pinkish-white nail polish on the verge of being sheer. This soft color offers a barely-there look which is ideal in the warmer months. I love this color for travel when I would like to ensure my nail polish plays well with everything in my suitcase. High hopes for travel this summer! It will also be a fabulous nail polish shade for toes during sandal season, as it won’t compete with any shoe color. Love that!

If you prefer darker nail polish hues, Chanel Perle Burgundy nail polish is also a metallic polish, in a much darker shade. This purplish-burgundy is beautiful. I am not sure I have the right adjectives to express how pretty this color is out of the bottle, and on the nail. I am in love! Chanel Perle Burgundy nail polish has purple undertones and looks more berry than burgundy. The sparkles add dimension too. This is an incredible color to wear now, and as we transition from winter into spring. Love!

I love the classic and feminine vibe of the Perles et Eclats de Chanel collection for spring 2021. It is a nice compliment to the spring 2021 collection which offers an edgier and more bold vibe. This collection gives us choices depending on our moods this spring. Is it a bold day? Is it a quiet day? We have a nail color to suit our moods. Love that!
