Marais must be my favourite area in Paris. It’s charming and cosy, and filled with great shopping spots. A new one is the Chanel beauty store.
Though Chanel stores are not uncommon in Paris, the only-beauty store is the first of it’s kind. In Paris that is, in you can also indulge in the luxury beauty world in their London and Las Vegas stores.
So why not just go to Galeries Lafayette or Le Bon Marché? Because this cute store is all about Chanel of course. The staff are experts, they have a special perfume bar and limited edition products like special nail colours only available there.
I’m a huge fan of the Chanel polishes, not so much for the quality but for the colours. Now they’ve come up with new polishes that promises to last longer, Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour.
What did I go for? A classic Parisian red (the perfect match for blue jeans) named Rouge Essentielle.
I’ve worn it once, and so far I’m impressed!
The staff sent me out of the store with a cute Chanel shopping bag filled with samples – yet another reason to come back.
