Bags of Beauty Blog: Bits and Bobs from the Chanel 2011 Christmas Collection!

We're in love with the Chanel Christmas Collection, so we thought we'd share our faves from the collection:

Chanel Lipstick in Famous
You can never go wrong with sporting a red lipstick at Christmas! 

Chanel's Christmas collection lipstick in Famous is a red, shimmery colour that's not too bright and not too deep- perfect for those glam Christmas events!

The lipstick is quite pigmented, but that may terrify some of you girls who have the 'Red Lipstick Phobia'. Never fear though, this lipstick has some sort of pinky/coral shimmery hue to it, that makes it look beautiful and not so full on as other red lipsticks!

Chanel Lip-Gloss
Super glossy and shimmery, this lip-gloss is a defo must for Christmas and NYE parties if you're one of those girls who love a little glamour, however expressed with subtlety and not too full-on.

This lip-gloss is a light ballet pink colour that is really smooth, making it easy to apply and glide onto your lips.

On the other hand, if you do love full-on and bursts of colour, you can apply the lip-gloss over the lipstick from the Christmas collection for a glossy, shimmery finish, that will also make your lipstick last longer and crown you the Queen of Christmas Glamour!

Chanel Duo Eyeshadows
These eye-shadows are so gorgeous that we fell in love with them immediately! They have the best features- they're super pigmented, lovely colours, and they're shimmery and last quite a long time too.

The vanilla colour can be used as a sheer base for a smoky eyed look, or even on its own for a natural look, and the shimmery black colour can be applied 'winged out' along with the vanilla coloured base. Smoky eyes are a huge trend this winter!

You also receive an applicator and a brush so you can create whatever style you want. The product also comes in a cute little pouch with the Chanel logo on it!
