Recently I have been obsessing a little over eyeshadows. I never really used to wear them much but since getting my Naked 2 palette a few months ago in September I have found I really enjoy applying eyeshadow and when you have the right brushes creating a smokey eye takes no time at all and is super easy. I find the colours of this Chanel eyeshadow absolutely gorgeous! It is from the Christmas 2012 collection so I'm not sure if they'll still have this in store when I get back to London and go shopping with my friend. I really do hope that they do as I would love to go and have a look at it and see whether or not these colours work well with my blue eyes. I have been seeing a lot of people wearing gorgeous cranberry colours like this one and they always look beautiful when blended well eith other colours to tone it down a little.
The next thing on my wishlist is this nail colour. I noticed this in November when I was in Harrods shopping with a friend and it caught my eye straight away. I don't know why I didn't pick it up, I'm just hoping it will be there when I'm next shopping! Again, this is a gorgeous burgundy coloured nail varnish and was from Chanel's Christmas 2012 collection. The colour is perfect for winter, is very on trend right now and is perfect for making fingers look longer and slimmer!
Next up on my wishlist are face brushes. For Christmas I got the beautiful Chanel foundation brush - it really is stunning! I have been wanting a proper brush collection and I decided to choose Chanel because I absolutely love the brand and their brushes really do look something. The matte black handle and the silver writing on them really looks so elegant and they're the kind of brushes that would look beautiful displayed all together on a dressing table. Of course, they come in the gorgeous black velvet pouch with the Chanel logo embossed at the top and would make a beautiful gift for someone or a perfect treat for a Chanel fan and a make up lover.
I have included the powder brush, the angled powder brush and the blusher brush onto my list because I am in need of a few powder and blusher brush. My current ones from the Body Shop are starting to get a little past it now and the powder brush is definitely loosing shape. All three of these brushes are made from natural hair and I think they're just absolutely gorgeous - what woman wouldn't like to add these to her brush collection. To me the angled brush looks slightly too big for contouring the cheek bones but this looks as though it would be amazing for one sweep of highlighter along the cheekbones - I don't know; I'm just going by how big it looks online so when I eventually get round to going to look at this brush I shall let you all know what I think.
Next up on my list are two eyeshadow brushes. I do actually want some by MAC but these are the two Chanel brushes that are on my wishlist. It's such a shame that they don't have a fluffy blending brush because I would have snapped that up straight away as I'm after a good one.
The small eyeshadow brush looks perfect for precise application of eyeshadow especially when trying to create a smokey eye. Like the name suggests, this brush looks small. I don't have a small brush to work with and I'm looking to add one to my collection. I think this small brush would be really good for either adding a wash of colour onto the lid or adding more colour onto a base colour. I shall definitely let you know my thoughts on this brush when I go to Chanel.The final brush on my Chanel wishlist is the angled eyeshadow brush. This brush would be wonderful for adding colour onto the outer corner of the eye and then bleding the colour out with a fluffy brush (a MAC 217 is on my wishlist). The angled brush could also be used for adding a small amount of colour through the crease. Depending on the size of this brush, it could possibly be used for filling in eyeshadows with powder. However, like the majority of these brushes, I haven't seen this brush in real life as the counter in Selfridges didn't have them on display and I wasn't best pleased with the service I was given - such a shame really as last time I shopped there the sales assistant was lovely!
That's everything on my Chanel brush and make up wishlist, although I'm sure I will no doubt see more stuff and add it on! I think these brushes are absolutely stunning and I honestly can't wait to go and check them out. They're rather expensive (I believe the angled powder brush is around £44) but I won't be buying them all at once. I would absolutely love to own all of these brushes at some point and as you may have read in my New Years resolutions posts one of them is to save money so I can treat myself this year - mainly when my family come down to London to collect me and bring me back home in May.
The final thing on my Chanel wishlist is a piece of jewellery. I have seen a few women in London wearing these ear rings everytime I see them it just makes me fall more and more in love. I think they're absolutely gorgeous and a little bit of everyday luxury. I have my ears pierced twice and I currently have gold hoops in my bottom holes - these ear rings would go absolutely perfect there and due to having my hair up all of the time they'd be shown off wonderfully. I need to pluck up the courage to go into the Chanel jewellery section in Selfridges and enquire about these beauties. I would have to either purchase them in either Gold or White Gold as I cannot usually wear Silver and wouldn't like to pay all that money to find out they turned me green!!
What do you think of make up brushes? Are you after a really a nice set or do make up brushes not interest you much?
