Here’s three things that I’m obsessed with this week:

1.  Slippers— After a look at this slideshow on Vogue Paris, I was suddenly obsessed with finding slippers.  I love the velvet designs especially, although I’m not sure about the skulls on the Toms (below) that have an Alexander McQueen vibe.  Otherwise, a fun addition to a tailored look (click to enlarge):

2.  Speaking of velvet, I’m obsessed with the upcoming release of Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet lipcolors.  Here is a collection of some beauty sites that have swatched items from the line:

-Bella Shmella’s are here

-Beauty Insider’s are here and here

-Delicate Hummingbird’s are here

 -Notes from My Beauty Life are here and here

I think they look lovely–they seem to be very pigmented with the slightest glow.  Also here is a link to more items from the collection at the British Beauty Blogger.
3.  Tom Ford’s Upcoming Beauty Line.  We’re begining to see some previews
-From are these pictures
-London Makeup Girl’s are here
-Get Lippie’s are here.
-The Beauty Look Book’s preview of lip colors is here.
Here are some obsession-worthy links:

  1. In the Netherlands, the Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks are already for sale. They are AMAZING! Very matte, but feel smooth and lightweight on the lips. Absolutely non drying at all. And they easily last through a meal. Another winner from Chanel in my opinion!

  2. thank you for mentioning me! you surely have to check out the RAV!

  3. hi amy!!! do you know when the u.s. will get the new chanel brushes? i can’t read chinese or is that japanese?? no one at chanel counters where i live (cincinnati) even know about this. and, i was going to buy some brushes at the chanel counter yesterday. i was told by an artist to get #11 and #12 and macy’s says it’s discontinued! the new matte lippies from chanel…..LA FURTIVE. this is the lip color used on the fall runways and other shows. peter phillips (spelling??) praises this color….but, guess what?!! it’s only available on the asian market! i don’t think they are going to have a pale pink in comparison either! well, so much for trying to recreate the “exact” look. thankyou amy for all your wonderful posts!!! xo p.s. the current brushes from chanel say made in china. i have mixed thoughts about that. is that really high quality. or, mass marketing for the masses?? i thought they should be made in france?

    • Not sure, Wendy – hopefully we will know more later on.

    • Wendy, La Furtive is also available on the European market as a permanent addition to the line. Maybe you have some friends or family in Europe that could help you out?
