Weekend Haul: Rock and Republic Blush, Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick and Glossimer

Am I a lucky girl or what?! This last friday, my boyfriend surprised me with two goodies from the Chanel Holiday 2010 collection! I happened to drop subtle hints about how crazy I was about the new Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in the limited edition shade Magnolia and he bought it for me the very next morning! The limited edition lipstick is a perfect shade of pink for all skintones because it doesn't lean too warm or too cool. The lipstick goes on so creamy and is a beautifully subtle shade of milky pink. For $30 a tube, this is not an inexpensive lipstick- but in my opinion you pay for the quality of the product and Chanel always delivers quality. I would purchase this lipstick again (better hurry if you want it, as it is limited edition) but probably only on a day where I've saved up some of my pennies! I'm pretty thankful that my boyfriend has such good taste in makeup because he picked out the Chanel Pink Pulsion Glossimer ($27) all by himself! This lipgloss, also limited edition, is a dazzling display of shimmer and PINK. As a glossimer, it does go on semi-sheer but the color is beautiful to wear on lips alone and can be used to glam up any lipstick. Paired with the Magnolia lipstick, Pink Pulsion is pure glamour!
I also placed an order for two more Rock and Republic blushes to add to my growing obsession collection! Seduce and Lust are the latest blushes to come in straight from the Rock and Republic website. The hockey-puck sized blushes are on SALE right now on RockandRepublic.com when you use the code RockCosmetics so hurry before the code expires! Both Seduce and Lust have shimmer and lean towards bronze-rose colors. I was wearing Seduce today and not only has it lasted all day but it gives the most gorgeous warm glow! I do swear by these blushes- the quality, size and uniqueness of the colors are really something I stand behind. While Call Me is a fan favorite, X Rated is definitely my personal favorite! Picture below is Seduce (right) and Lust, along with the Chanel lipstick and lipgloss swatches. Will YOU be checking out the Rock and Republic sale or the Chanel Holiday collection?  Leave your thoughts in the comments.
