Mademoiselle Chanel Dreams in Pink – and So Do I With the Chanel Mademoiselle Dreams Collection

Have you noticed how pink is now everywhere?

Homeware, clothing, design pieces, people’s hair, makeup…

You know, for example, there’s a certain omnipresent brand who has made all its branding around the color pink and then there’s Chanel who has released a mini-collection of lipsticks and nail polishes that are all variations of the same color.

Yes.

Pink.

Mesdames et Messieurs, voilà my three picks from the Chanel Mademoiselle Dreams collection.

Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in 600 Énergie, Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour in 162 Énergique, Chanel Rouge Allure Intense Long-Wear Lip Colour in 178 New Prodigious

My first Chanel lipstick was the long-discontinued Rouge Allure in 27 Excentric, a stunning deep eggplant color, which was both fabulously daring and incredibly chic.

Now, shade 178 New Prodigious is probably at the opposite end of the daring spectrum but, let me tell you, it’s just as chic as its bold predecessor.

It’s a beautiful pinky nude with a touch of mauve that is nicely hydrating on the lips and so easy to apply. It’s just the perfect shade to throw in your handbag and pop out for casual mirror-less touch-ups throughout the day.

Chanel Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour in 600 Rose Énergie ($28)

You know I love my Chanel nail polishes and this one makes no exception.

Rose Énergie is so easy to spread, even and opaque that it can totally be a one-coater – perfect for the busiest (or laziest) among us.

The color has some depth to it, which my camera failed to pick up, that makes me think I’ll be wearing this a lot in the upcoming fall months. (I so don’t want to think about the fall, though.)

…and I saved the best for last!

If I still had any doubts that the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink is a great liquid lipstick formula (I don’t, but if I did…), Énergique would clear them all up.

This beautiful pinky red is sooo flattering on the lips. It has a gorgeous second-skin effect that coats the lips with a deliciously beautifying velvet blanket. (Eh…?)

It goes matte in about 5-10 minutes (especially if you press your lips together), but isn’t one bit drying. On me it lasts about 4-5 hours and I can reapply it as many times I want without it going patchy or crusty.

I bloody love it, so if you buy one thing from this mini collection, I think the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in 162 Énergique should be it.

And that’s a wrap! I’m going to take a glorious nap (I’m on vacay – YAY!) and hopefully dream pink dreams. 😉

    I dislike pink. Be it on hair, clothes or wherever else. The only thing I can get on board with is a darinng fuchsia, so the last option you showed would be considered.
    All shades do flatter you though, you just have the perfect complexion for pink.
    And what are you plans for the vacation? Beside napping?

    I really like the nail polish and I can see it being even more beautiful with the added depth to it, and perfect for September (I really love Chanel nail polishes as well)!

      I think Chanel nail polish shade range is hard to be. The only brand that can compare in my opinion is Smith and Cult.

    These all look beautiful on you, especially the liquid lip colour! That shade was made for you! It’s funny because you were the 2nd blogger in a row in my feed that mentioned the Chanel Le Vernis nail colour and I looked it up, I totally want to get the shade Emeraude!

      I’ve just googled Emeraude, it looks like it would be a great color for the fall!
