Pretty in Pink

Chanel, Chanel, ohhhhh, how I love thee Chanel.  I'm not a label snob, believe me, but Chanel just makes me happy sometimes with how classic and amazing it is.  When I went shopping with mi mama a couple days ago, I said I got some new Chanel makeup and here it is, complete with an entire look made with these purchases that were exclusively given to Nordstrom for distribution.  
 Chanel Powder Blush in St. Rose Tourbillon, Chanel Luminous Lip Colour in Joyeuse, and Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Rose Envolee
 The blush is actually waaaaay more pink, I just couldn't get the best picture.  It's a perfect pink and smells like heaven, literally.  The smell is all rosy and wonderful.
 I really love the eyeshadow colors.  Apparently when the quad is comprised of circles, it's European and  only in America are the quads square.  The colors are very pretty and I used them all in this eye.  I used the lighter colors on my brow bone, the brighter pink on my lid and kind of lined my lid with the burgundy dead rose. Oh, I also used MAC's Brow Set in Show-off to tint my eyebrows and groom them into place.  I swear by this tint and a little goes a long way.  It has a mascara-like brush and I always wipe off a ton of the product inside the bottle and just gently run it through my brows.  It looks so much more natural than pencil and stays on all day.
 European...other side of the world Quad! I do have to say I like the cute little circles :)
 Eyes, the color was a little more intense in real-life, but you get the gist.  
The lipstick was a little lighter than I typically go for, but it was such a cute pink I had to have it.  For a pale pink I really like it and it looked really cute because I was wearing kind of matching pink and blue pastels.  This collection was apparently originally released in Japan so I wore my Baby, the Stars Shine Bright Necklace, a Japanese Lolita brand.  I never dress Lolita, but some of their things are very cute and not over the top little girl for me.  It's just not a look that works for me, haha.  I really love all of these products and am glad my mother was so nice to give me an early birthday present.  Another birthday present is....I'm going to New York this Thursday! I'm so excited, I haven't been there in forever and I get to see the Alexander McQueen Exhibit at the Met, which I've been ready to sell my soul to see.  Ah! So much excitement for my upcoming birthday (July 18th)!
