Quick notice to say I’ll be spacing out posts to a couple of times a week as it’s getting a little hard to do 1 a day!
(Been doing that for 3 years, so I’m patting myself on the back anyway haha.)
I’ll still keep the pictorials coming so no worries. If you want to keep up with me on a daily basis or ask me a quick question, find me on Instagram (@Makeup_box) or Facebook.com/makeupbox.sg!
Leaving you with a visual of Chanel, Chanel, Chanel.
All the better for dreaming!
Rouge Allure 91 Seduisante
Aqualumiere lip gloss 89 Baie Rose
Eye Shadow quad 14 Mystic Eyes
Joues Contraste blush 86 Narcisse
Bos des Iles perfume*
Hand-me-down classic quilted Chanel purse (can I call it “vintage” in this case?)
Scent notes; Of all the scents Chanel’s first in-house perfumer, Ernest Beaux, created in his long and esteemed career (No 5, No 22, Cuir de Russie, Gardenia, etc), he considered the sandalwood-laden Bois des Iles (Wood of the Isles) to be the true and greatest masterpiece of his lifetime.
Who is this sandalwood fanatic to argue with the maestro?
Sadly this enigmatic, woody-with-a-hint-of-gingerbread scent is only available in the Les Exclusifs range, not widely marketed, and isn’t well known except among perfume afficionados. But you wouldn’t have to worry about every other girl on the subway smelling of your beloved Coco Mademoiselle!
