Eye Shadow -Chanel - Les 4 Ombres Tisse Essentiel

Colors are wonderful especially for a person who prefers natural earthy look. BUT I have to say there is nothing especial about it other than that. Colors don't look muddy when applied but their intensity is really weak save the dark brown. I really wish they were more intense and creamy. So I guess Chanel need to look back at the quality of this palette.



Treatments (Face) -Chanel - Hydra Beauty Micro Serum

I've had this product for about six months, and I had a chance to test in the Winter, Spring and Summer. I have skin that was excessively oily and very acne-prone between the ages of 13 and 38. I've spent thousands of dollars throughout the years in topical and oral medications for this condition, and in religious visits to facialists and dermatologists. Last year, my skin finally began normalizing itself, though I still get acne and excess oiliness during certain days of the month (you know those). Overall, I am much happier with my skin now. With this being said, here are my thoughts on this product:

Pros:

1) Did not irritate my skin. I am not particularly sensitive, but several Chanel products irritate my skin, ranging from a mild burning sensation (Le Lift, Le Blanc, Sublimage, Le Beige foundation) to full-blown hives that required a visit to the ER (Base Ombre a Paupieres). This is surprisingly mild.

2) It works. While if feels light on the skin, it does some heavy-duty moisturizing, at least on my skin type. I have a stubborn patch of flaky skin on the side of my mouth that does not respond to moisturizers, even ones prescribed by my dermatologist. This, along with an oil by Fresh (Seaberry) are the only two products that control those flakes.

3) The packaging is pretty and hygienic. The pump feels sturdy and efficient, and I like how much product it dispenses.

4) The product has a mild, fresh and pleasant scent that dissipates quickly. While this is a plus for me, it may pose a problem for those who are sensitive to fragrances. The texture of the product feels smooth, elegant and spa-like as well.

Cons:

1) Overpriced. I paid around 100 dollars for the smaller bottle, and I suspect that the formula is mostly fragrant glycerin.

2) Can make foundation too shiny and sticky for my taste. I don't get the whole obsession with greasy-looking skin (AKA "dewy"), and this product can definitely do that. If you like that finish, however, this should work well for you.

3) May not be moisturizing enough in the dead of Winter. At that point, I switch to the Hydra Beauty Crème.

4) Too moisturizing in the Summer. On those days, I just wash my face and skip moisturizer altogether. Really, what's the point?

Would I buy this product again? Probably.

I think people with the following skin types may enjoy this product: slightly dry, normal, slightly oily.

Very oily types - unnecessary, unless you wish to highlight the shiny aspect of your skin.

Very dry types - this won't be moisturizing enough for you, unless you layer it with a richer product.

Happy shopping!

Mascara -Chanel - inimitable

on 8/13/2017 1:49:00 AM

The mascara was pricey but I can't remember exactly how much! I was so disappointed. The wand bristles were too short and it did absolutely nothing for my lashes accept make them look clumpy.
I don't think I was meant to use expensive cosmetics and will stick to Max Factor Clump Defy! Always great results but don't we all fancy a change now and again? Oh well, save my money and stick with what works.


Foundations -Chanel - Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

I have been usinf this foundation for 4 years now. It has quite a light coverage, I have to say. I use it along with the Le Teint powder.

I tent to stay away from full coverage foundations as I feel like they make my skin loom worse. This one gives me a natural, flawless finish and my skin looks like silk in pictures.

I am under the suspicion that it clogs my pores a little. But if it does, then it is very little.

I used to use a brush to apply this foundation and it worked fine. Nowadays I use a beauty blender. Never had a problem spreading it, but then again my skin is oily so maybe that is why.

I try other foundations but I do feel lile this js my match!


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

I've been using this for about 3 years, then changed it when I broke out because of the pill, so I was hoping to find something similar but with medium to full coverage. After a year of trying everything else I could find in my shade (including Sisley) I'm back to my old friend. Thankfully my skin cleared out in the meantime and, while I still get the occasional red spots etc, this foundation is still the best for me (I use concealer to cover any blemishes). I love the natural finish, the shade matches me perfectly, it doesn't dry on me and it stays put all day (I scrub and use hydrating masks once a week, I have combination skin; don't use primer, but I do moisturizer before foundation and use translucent powder after, to set it). I found it looks best on me if I apply it with a beauty blender.
