[Chanel] Western Light

Yesterday’s pick was Western Light, since I had a makeup session with Yannick Lemaire, one of chanel’s top makeup artists. It’s been the third time that Yannick worked with me and, as always, it was fun. 🙂 I also seized the occasion to buy two varnishes I was lacking, Starlet and Cinéma. However, when I as waiting in school for my little one and browsing the shopping, I discovered that, instead of Starlet, they had put Accessoire 😯 in my bag, which is a beautiful shade but, of course, I already own it! So, right after school, we went to Alsterhaus again, and I feared that Starlet might have sold out in the meantime. :mrgreen: But the story had a happy ending, Starlet is mine now.

But first comes Western Light. This is a very dark brown with hints of a reddish shimmer. It’s similar to Vertigo (563), but overall a tad darker.

My usual two coats. I chose it for the makeup session because I thought that Yannick would probably recognise it (last year, I had Jade on my nails, the year before, it was Gondola) but, unfortunately, we did not have the time to chat about nail varnishes.

Yes, I did a close up shot, but it’s pretty blurred!

  1. So pretty! Did you pick up Taboo? Let me know, I’m placing a CHANEL order Friday. I’ll be happy to pick up for you.
    I hadn’t liked any of the Western Light swatches before yours, they are gorgeous!
