Chanel Summer 2012 and the Boots points conundrum!

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 23 - 2012

It’s not my blogging style to post new collections but I’m making a “sort-of” exception in this case. You see, I have a good amount of Boots points burning a hole in my purse and I wanted to gauge some opinion on whether any of these pieces are setting your makeup-loving hearts alight as they are mine?

I usually buy a few Chanel or Dior pieces from the holiday collections, helped along with those handy points but last year, I only bought Chanel Féérie (not even using my points!) and I’ve barely used it. I’ve lost my splurging confidence after being totally won over by the pretty rather than the usable – do you do that?

The above picture shows a few of the pretties from the Chanel Summer 2012 Collection and I’m lusting after one of the bronzers (Sable Beige 907 – the one without the pink) and that eye duo (Sable-Émouvant) – I can’t go far wrong with those right?  I think I’m leaning more toward picking up the Sable-Émouvant eye duo and the Summer blusher (Sheer Summer Glow) from Burberry, have you seen that one?  If you’re as pale as me – I think you should take a look!

The Chanel Summer 2012 Collection will be available nationwide from Friday.

Have you got any high-end beauties on your Summer radar?

  1. I saw the eye duo on Plant Martha and I think that would be a really good choice, I think that’s the only item from the collection that I’d be tempted by. I’m so rubbish with the Summer collections!

    Both bronzers and eye shaddows for me. Though I’m lusting after the Knightsbridge collection which Online only, so not much help to you.

    I’m dying to get the Burberry bronzer! It looks like a nice bronzer I won’t be scared of.

    The eyeshadow duo has a V good write up on cafe make up, and there are great (in my opinion) swatches of the bronzers on the beauty look book. I have been a-saving the boots points up for this collection, but think that may be some actual pounds may have to go to Chanel too :-)

    PS – Guerlain summer collection has some to-die for items – the Debenhams beauty card will help with that!

    I’ve got about 50 quid on my boots card but can’t decide what to get! Don’t know whether to get something big like a perfume, or save til Christmas, or get a few big things from Channel or Dior or something… It’s too hard to choose! Xxx

    I think I’m sitting at about £60-ish on mine. I read a review of Enrapture Extremity heated rollers and kinda want to try them since I’m growing my hair and might be fun to play about with when it’s longer. At a whopping £75 I might wait until I accumulate the extra points and treat myself!
