Needful Things - Chanel La Creme Main Texture Riche

Cold weather is on the way and nothing starts feeling the effects of the elements faster then our hands - so amp up their care with:

Chanel La Creme Main Texture Riche - 50ml - $70 - a rich and velvety balm in a new, more comforting and enveloping texture, perfect for dry and delicate hands.

Personally, I love the packaging - elegant and practical, its “shape memory” pebble fits snugly in the
palm of the hand and easily in your purse. Inside the packaging, a retractable pouch contains the formula and protects it from air and exterior elements - meaning that with each use, the pouch retracts to deliver just the right dose of cream, while
preserving the initial shape of the container.

Mascara Monday - Le Volume Revolution de Chanel Extreme Volume Mascara - with swatches!

Le Volume Revolution de Chanel Extreme Volume Mascara - $45 - what makes it interesting? It has the first 3D-printed mascara brush with innovative technology for a revolutionary brush design.
The honeycomb structure of the brush loads it with just the right amount of formula. Printed in a unique material, the brush completely releases the mascara with a first sweep of the lashes. In a single stroke, eyelashes reveal immediate, extreme volume without clumping. They reveal an arresting effect.
The formula is nicely liquid without being too wet - a combination of waxes (rice wax, beeswax) with a supple texture that intensely coats and thickens the row of lashes, a polymer film that keeps the “extreme volume” result in place until makeup removal along with a pro-vitamin that strengthens lashes with each application for an exquisite row of lashes.
Apply with a sweeping stroke from the root to the tips of the lashes with a slight zigzagging movement - and it takes just a single coat to perfectly densify the lashes!
