Formula X for Sephora officially replaced the beloved Sephora by OPI line last fall and, to be honest, every time I go in the store, I am so overwhelmed by the immensity of the line that I can never decide on a just a couple shades to try and leave empty handed.

In what seems like another world, a long, long time ago, I was somewhat of an accomplished musician (aka band geek). I have stacks of music that I leave in a visible place, as a promise to practice in hopes of joining a community orchestra, someday. I really miss playing.

Which is why the musical theme of Chanel’s Notes de Printemps (Notes of Spring) Spring 2014 collection resonated with me. Playful pinks and purples are at the core of the collection and that theme comes through in the two new shades of Chanel Le Vernis, Charivari (pandemonium) and Tapage (noise).
