BEAUTY BIAS by Bernice Peck
The name Chanel has a lustre all its own. Absolutely. Coco is not on the scene but she will be forever celebrated in fashion, in fragrance and now, in beauty.
In 1974 the Chanel Beauty Collection was finished and introduced in France, then Italy and Germany. If you're a shopping traveler you may have picked up some of her things there. Now it's our turn.
These days you can find the Chanel beauties in swank stores here (Saks-Fifth is one). The whole idea is -- as with Chanel fashion--quality, elegance, understated perfection.
At counters, Chanel "analysts" will evaluate your individual makeup and skin care needs. You'll be given personally chosen samples of recommend items to try at home before continuing the program.
I wont' even try to cover the whole story here. But for starters, let me urge you to look at the lipsticks. They have a silken glide quite different from anything I've had before. At $6.50 they should indeed be special and, like anything Chanel, they really are.
Essence Rare is a nice if nervy name to hang on a fragrance. But it actually fits the new one Houbigant brought out last month. Don't ask me why I fell for it at first sniff, maybe it's the fig leaf part of the formula. All I know is, it is rarely delicious in an airy, feminine way. The perfume  is $45 an oz. but the spray (non-aerosol) gives the same soft enjoyment for merely $8.50 for three oz. Try it, do.
Up Revlon way: What's new in the laying on of perfume? At Revlon they've just invented it. A perfectly portable perfumer that is spill-proof and leak-proof, goes on the skin with a soft and kissy stroke. Name, "Touch-Tip," it comes furnished with any of four Revlon high favorites: Charlie, Jontue, Intimate, Moon Drops. At $4 or $4.50, get a bunch of them and stache some away for Christmas presents.
