Swap It- Beauty
I not really into beauty trends, but I really wanted that CHANEL colour Particuliere but not the Chanel price tag, I spotted the shade Marron Glace by Mavala which looked very similar unfortunately it seemed to be sold out everywhere I went. At Christmas I saw the shade in a pack but the pack cost £30 for six shades and 1 topcoat. In January the pack was reduced to £20 still too much I thought for one shade. Finally this week after having enough of my LA Colours and still not finding the shade as a single, I purchased it for £13.50. Marron Glace is a great colour match to Particuliere, it does require 2 coats and 2 coats of topcoat to last 3 days. In the Mavala pack their was also New York a lighter version of CHANEL Black Velvet, Mexico (good colour match to CHANEL Paradoxol). Lagoon was not in the pack but it looks a good colour match to CHANEL Nouvelle Vogue and can be purchased online in a 3 pack with Marron Glace and Elle at £9.95 from www.feelunique.co.uk
Next colour Crush Black Pearl
This blog has a review of this shade http://www.alllacqueredup.com/2010/10/chanel-spring-2011-preview-black-pearl.html I wonder if Mavala has its own version of the shade.
