Chanel Cosmic Violine #497


Good Morning! Are you all "indie'd out" yet? Well me either, but I thought we'd take a little break with Chanel. I'm working on another indie polish post though! But today I have an older one - Cosmic Violine.

Cosmic Violine #497 is from Chanel's Summer 2009's Celestial Lights Collection and is medium ruddy reddish brown with gold and pink/magenta micro-glitter/flakes. It's like a lighter version of one of my biggest Chanel regrets - Feu de Russie. I really regret not picking up THAT collection. But this one is gorgeous - and probably better suited to my pale skin than Feu de Russie - and has a great formula. I used two coats with no top coat for the photos and had NO issues at all. Formula and application were great.

What do you think of this one? Do you have it? It's not one of those impossible-to-find or über spendy Chanels like the Russies, so have a look around the net and you can probably pick it up for a reasonable price.





If you enjoyed this post, please take a second to "like" it! Thanks!

  3. This one instantly reminded me of KBShimmer Cocoa Nut! Do you think they may be alike?

  4. GORGEOUS! *swoon* I was going to ask if you had tried KBShimmer's Cocoa Nut--since it reminded me a bit of it (and I have the KBS). And then I googled it and saw you had posted about it :)

    I know, it's Chanel. I broke down and bought Peridot before the 18 dupes came out (*headdesk*) but I think I might be happy with my KBS and not have to kill another lemming ;)

    LOL Viktoria great minds think alike ;)
