Chanel Taboo
Chanel Taboo

You know when a product is so cult that it doesn’t really need a title other than the most basic name? Well, that, about this. Taboo is heading for Chanel history along with Rouge Noir, Particuliere and Peridot.

It’s already launched in the US; annoyingly it doesn’t arrive in the UK til June 28th – but it IS coming, so that’s something. There are some incredible reviews of this – bloggers Stateside are loving it; I haven’t seen one negative review.

It’s a very grown-up version of Max Factor Fantasy Fire (which, if you remember, was based on the Clarins 230 nail polish that commands a fortune on Ebay for the few remaining bottles in existence).  You can see a good swatch of both HERE.

The best swatches I’ve found for Taboo are HERE. The polish is a complex mix of silver, blue and purple micro-sparkles in a purple base that gives it reddish tones. On the nail, it looks like a shimmer shot deep purple, but it’s not a pure colour – it will change with the light or from different angles. Hurry up, Chanel!
