Foundations -Chanel - Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

on 5/23/2017 11:09:00 AM


I signed up for Makeup Alley specifically to review this product. This is by far the worst foundation that I have ever used. It dries so quickly that it is impossible to apply without clumping, caking and streaking. I have tried brushes, sponges, and even my fingers. Nothing helped.

When it arrived, I had not finished up my last foundation, so I left it in the container for a week or so. Guess I should have read Chanel's return policy because returns must be received within two weeks of purchase...Ugh!

Realizing I was stuck with a very expensive foundation ($60.00), and as an economical minded person, I tried to wear it at times when I knew not that many people would see me - weekends around the house, at the gym, etc., just to use it up and kinda feel like I got my money's worth. After about 5 or 6 applications, I gave up and threw it in the trash!

So very disappointing. I am posting in hopes of saving someone else from losing their money on this terrible product.

Powder -Chanel - LE TEINT ULTRA TENUE (ultrawear flawless compact foundation) Powder Foundation

on 5/23/2017 10:49:00 AM

I bought this on a whim at a duty free store in panama. I'm not really a powder person - I prefer a dewy look. However, living in Houston in the summer makes powder fdtn a must for me. I wear this in 30 beige and I'm nc20. You can wear it alone but I prefer to wear it in my tzone and over Dior nude air fdtn. It's also great for covering up cystic acne. It actually works better with a sponge than with a powder brush. This stuff is worse the price and is great to travel with since it can be used as foundation alone and has a great mirror. It's worth it to treat yourself to Chanel sometimes!!

Foundations -Chanel - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

on 5/23/2017 8:43:00 AM


Just hit 40. Large pores and slight lines. Oh and a portwine stain. I like foundations that lightens my stain but not totally mask it. This does a good job. It does looks a bit sheeny and masky when just on but looks great a while later. Gives a healthy glow like it says. Best of all for me, it looks really great by late afternoon. Doesnt set in my pores. Im in a hot humid environment but work in an arctic aircon office. Will buy again. Expensive but a bottle lasts a long way, considering i just pump once and i put it on with a brush.

Liquid -Chanel - Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15


I bought this because a beauty vlogger liked it (to be fair, she liked Lumiere Perfection, but the person at the counter told me this was better because I had dry skin.) I have used it for a few months and I have to say that even with primer, it pills up and soaks into my pores. I thought it was because I'm getting older and it was seriously bumming me out. Then I got a sample of my old foundation, which I always loved, Armani Maestro. And guess what? It didn't happen. So, I conclude that this stuff sucks. Particularly if you are a woman of a certain age, I would suggest passing on this one.

Moisturizers -Chanel - La Solution 10 de Chanel

on 5/21/2017 9:43:00 PM


This is a pricey moisturizer for sensitive skin, but it fits the bill if you are willing to spend the cost of this. I like to use this as an after shave, it works very well on my neck, and I appreciate that it is unscented. Otherwise, if my skin gets any sensitivity, I feel like this product works well as a bandage, and it helps calm down any redness I may be having on my face. I love that it is in a pump as well, my preference for moisturizer, as you do not ruin it by opening a jar constantly exposing it to light.
