Chanel knows how to celebrate!
With the renovation of the Chanel Boutique in the Galleria of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, four Limited Edition and Exclusive items were created: Lucky Stripes, a compact with four shades of sand and bronze to be worn on eyes, face or cheekbones; Rouge Coco Shine in Brilliant, a sheer golden lip shade; Le Crayon Lèvres Vegas Gold, a gold lip pencil; and Le Vernis in Gold Fingers.
Lucky Stripes is a melange of golds, peaches, and bronze shades and can be used as a bronzer, illuminator, and shadow. These shades blended nicely on both the eyes and the cheeks. I experienced little fall out (nothing to really be concerned with) and thought the mixture of the colors on the eyes and on the cheeks made for a sheer and luminous warm golden effect.
Below I swatched a few of the shades together to show the different ways that this powder can be used on the cheeks.
Starting on the left is the bronze and peach shade mixed, the second is the golds and white mixed, the third is the peach and gold mixed, and on the far right side is all of the colors blended together.
I'm not real happy with these pictures of the FOTD and EOTD. I have been at this picture thing for hours and I cannot even begin to capture how beautiful this powder is on the eyes and cheeks in person. I used Lucky Stripes on the cheeks by using the 2 left shades as a contour and then smiling to apply all of the shades on the apples of the cheeks and to blend. I used the included brush for both application processes. The liner is Chanel Brun Le Crayon Yeux and the mascara is Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill. On the lips is Dior Or Etoile Lipstick and Dior Apricot Cloche Addict Lip Gloss.
On the eye, the frosty peach shade was used on the lid and through the crease; the dark bronze shade was used as a crease and outer V color; the gold was used for inner corners and above the crease; and the white was used to highlight. I also used some of the gold under the lower lash line.
This powder is ONLY available at the Chanel Boutique in the Galleria of the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. I am unsure whether or not it’ll end up online. So far, I’m hearing no, I’ll keep my eyes and ears open!
Lucky Stripes retails for $95.00. If you want to call to the Chanel Boutique to order the phone number is 702-765-5505. I spoke with Kathleen and she was super nice You can also ask for Giselle. A tip – if you don’t have a Chanel Boutique in your state (which I don’t) there is no tax on the product, however shipping is $11.95 for Fed-Ex and be aware you WILL need to sign for it.
