You know that saying "waste not, want not." Well, I'm going to excuse that expression with this EXTREMELY late New Year's Eve look :D

Last summer, I purchased Chanel's Bombay Express de Chanel, and knew I wanted to recreate the beautiful Indian-inspired looks from the Chanel Paris-Bombay Metiers d’Art Show for New Year's Eve.

From left to right: 85 Mirifique Illusion d’Ombre, Routes des Indes de Chanel, Brume D’Or Joues Contraste, Empreinte Rouge Coco Shine. 

I was glad to see Brume D’Or released in the collection; first, I already owned it (translation, I don't have to shell out $43.00), and second, Brume D’Or is a stunning blush that needs to be introduced to the WORLD! 

Question: Do any of you other lovelies get a feeling of relief when a collection features an item/items that you already own? Or am I, and my pocket book, the only ones?

Nars Sheer Glow Foundation in Santa Fe (Medium 2).

 You probably can't tell, but I cut 5 Inches off my hair and fringe...bad idea :( Thank god, my hair grows fast!

One last photo before washing my face.

What did you wear on New Year's? Also, did you buy anything from this collection?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. This is a stunning look! 85 Mirifique Illusion d’Ombre is absolutely beautiful! xx

    1. Thank you Natalie :) Mirifique is GORGEOUS, and a must!

  2. Gorgeous! I love the smokey eye and neutral lips!

  3. I think you may have convinced me that I need Mirifique. I've been slow to commit to any of the IdO shadows because I'm worried they'll look too frosty on my lids, but this one looks like it's more sparkle than frost.

    And you're certainly not the only one who feels a sense of relief when you already own something that comes out with a new collection. It's a great way to feel like your collection is very on-trend! :-P

    1. Have have to get Mirifique Kate! It's not frosty at all, Mirifique is what I wanted Mac's Black Tied to be, when I purchased it years ago.

      Glad to know I'm not alone :)

  4. @Deborah * I'd been wanting to send a communication on the other hand can’t believe that it is on your own site. Are you able to you should get in touch?

  5. Such a pretty look! Love all the products you used.

  6. Those lashes look AMAZING on you! By the way, I nominated you for the Beautiful Blogger Award! :)
