Get in Line

This is my new toy; La Ligne de Chanel. It is an old fashioned cake eye liner from the revered cosmetic House of Chanel. With super makeup artist Peter Phillips at the helm, Chanel has become so much more fashion forward, with it's seasonal nail polishes rapidly becoming collectors items and this year's Rouge Coco lipsticks out-performing most other lipstick brands; it seems we would all like a little piece of Chanel. Particularly when our dreams of owning a quilted bag or classic boucle jacket have been shattered by our new prudent shopping habits, we can at least take some of the brand's glamour home in a black polished compact with the intertwined C's.
There is nothing more glamorous than a classic, deep black eye line and this product is the prefect way to achieve it. The compact contains the tools you need and by dipping your brush in water and then into the inky palette you can easily create a gorgeous line. (Aim as close to the upper lashes as possible to keep the line tight) . There is a dark sparkly side to complement the deeper tone and I find that it's great when you add a bit on top of the line you have just drawn for extra shimmer. You can also use it as a shadow all over the lid.

Wouldn't it make a nice stocking filler? It's time to start with the hints ladies!
