Makeup Mavens Take 4!

Makeup Mavens present makeup you might have missed. This week we posted about the beauty of online shopping, Chanel polishes, luxury brushes, Becca eyeshadows, Dior bargains, favorite products of June and we looked deeply in the purse of one makeup maven. Hope you enjoy the posts!

Jenn of Hopelessly Devoted To Makeup was not all that impressed with the new Chanel nail polishes from their Fall collection. However, as you'll be able to see, sometimes it pays off to give the products a second chance.

Online shopping is definitely becoming more and more popular. Check out some of Lipstick Luvvie's favorite online shops and products that she found on the www shelves.

Christina of Lovesong for My Lipgloss shows us what's in her bag. And guess what product is one of her 3 must-haves (tip: it's all in the name).

The latest post from Mookie On The Bench might make you green with envy as she shows you what a great deal she got on two Dior products.

Product Doctor posted about her June favourites while travelling around Spain and Portugal (lucky girl). Some truly lovely products from Becca, Le Metier de Beaute and Chanel made it on her list.

Natalie from Raspberry Rouge showed us photos and a lovely look she did with the Becca eyeshadows from the Enigma palette which looks like a beautiful trio of everyday neutral colors.

The Black Panties tempted us with her review of the luxurious and very-hard-to-find cheek brush by a Japanese manufacturer Chikuhodo.

Chanel Giveaway Extension!!!

A huge thank you to everyone who follows this blog, reads, and comments on it. I thank you from the bottom of my heart! The winner of my first ever giveaway is *drum roll please* Claudia Werneck!!! To everyone else who did not win don't be discouraged as this is the first of many giveaways I have planned. Giveaways are sort of addicting to me and I'm already planning my next giveaway at 250 followers (psst, it's going to a Le Metier De Beaute giveaway)!

*edit* I've decided in light of the holiday weekend to extend the contest until Tuesday. I hope this is the fairest option to everyone.

Claudia, please contact me at my blog's email address to give me your address and make your Le Vernis nail lacquer choice (if I don't hear from you by July 5th at 1:00pm PST, you'll have forfeited the prize and an alternate winner will be chosen). Congrats again, Claudia!

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Epatant #84 EOTD

Chanel's Illusion D'Ombre are part of Chanel's fall collection but thankfully are permanent. This way you can take your time to decide if these shadows are to your liking or not without the rush. They are touted as long lasting and I really wanted to demonstrate the shimmer in these shadows. I've heard that they are shimmery from some and not very from others. Here pictured is me wearing Epatant a lovely khaki silver color. I think we can all agree that these shadows are shimmery!

To buy or not to buy Epatant?
