Foundations -Chanel -Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

on 8/15/2018 2:04:00 PM

Basically, it shouldn't be this hard to apply foundation. I appreciate it for the coverage - (medium to heavy). But it DOES dry as soon as you apply it - does NOT budge - therefore, does not blend, AT ALL. I found it very frustrating and quickly returned to my Clinique Beyond Perfection (same great coverage - half the price).

Fragrances -Chanel -Chance Eau Tendre

Fresh, clean, and inexplicably feminine. This is a more floral take on the original Chanel Chance (which is also beautiful). The whole Chance line is “younger” smelling. Not as spicy, woodsy, or musky. Chanel Chance fragrances are fresh, lighter, crisp, clean, and classy. Each Chance has its own unique quality, and Eau Tendre is definitely the most floral and girly of the bunch.. but very sophisticatedly so. Chanel Chance Eau Tendre is not my signature scent by any means (I usually prefer deeper, darker, more complex scents), however, there is still a complexity to this fragrance that I can appreciate. This is for that woman who wants to smell clean, feminine, effortlessly sexy, and like pure class anywhere she goes. For the woman who takes care of herself, who is confident but not loud. I really appreciate the effortlessness of this, it’s stunning and will turn heads without “trying too hard”. This scent is so soft and beautiful, I can’t see anyone not liking it. It’s more than your average “clean, fresh” scent.. something about it is very memorable. The packaging is also beautiful in its simplicity, and one-of-a-kind classic Chanel. You really can’t go wrong with this one, especially if you’re looking for something inoffensive but still beautiful to wear during the daytime or around the office. Excellent staying power as well, lasts almost all day on me. A truly stunning, graceful, feminine fragrance.

Mascara -Chanel -Le Volume Revolution de Chanel

on 8/15/2018 11:17:00 AM

WARNING: This is NOT the original "Le Volume".

I was given a sample of Chanel Le Volume mascara and it was so good - one of the best mascaras I've ever had - that I thought I'd buy it. But somehow I ended up with this new version, marked 'Revolution' because of the 3D printed brush. Seriously, this is one of the most awful mascaras I've ever owned. The brush is so chunky it's like applying mascara with a space; the 3D printed design doesn't allow for the kind of separation a proper brush gives you, and as a result, you end up with tons of product in big clumps. It's messy as hell too and it goes everywhere. In addition to that, this mascara does not hold the curl, so even if you curl your lashes first, 2 minutes later they're already back to normal, weighed down by this useless gloop.

I cannot believe Chanel has put out a product like this. It cost me £28 and I would have been better off with a £5 mascara from Rimmel.

Avoid at all costs.

Powder -Chanel -Les Beiges - Healthy Glow Sheer Powder

Though I was skeptical and bought this on a whim when I ran out of my other pressed powder, I have to admit that on my skin, this is awesome - especially in the summer when I am using a ton of greasy sunscreen on my face.

I have dry skin, and this warms up my complexion, and reduces the greasy sunscreen look while still keeping my complexion glowy - it literally is like using some kind of photo filter in real life!

Note that my natural skin tone is about nc35, and in summer more of an nc42. I have this in shade 30 and I still find that, despite my natural tan, it makes my face more bronzed/orange looking - the colour definitely shows up on my face, and I have to take it down my neck/chest to keep things matched up. In winter I may switch to shade 25.

Cleansers -Chanel -L'Huile Anti-Pollutant Cleansing Oil

on 8/12/2018 3:21:00 PM

I have a love affair with all things Chanel, and I'm especially happy with the quality of their products.

My go-to Chanel beauty advisor recommended this to me as I've been using heavily foaming cleansers to remove makeup and clean my face. This isn't the first oil cleanser I've used but I stopped using them when the milky lather would ruin my vision in the morning. I have dry skin that tends to get tight and look sallow without moisturizer, so I look for cleansers that are creamy and don't foam.

One to two pumps is all you need to cleanse your entire face and neck - including eye makeup. And at first I couldn't believe it, but L'Huile really does remove heavy eye makeup! I wear several coats of mascara and it all came off in a few rubs.

Contact with water does produce a milky white lather but it's easily rinsed off and doesn't leave a film. My skin feels soft, hydrated, and fragranced. The scent is somewhere close to a rose-y, French jasmine. I wouldn't recommend this for those allergic to sunflower oil (first ingredient) or fragrance. I took off a star because although this effectively removes my makeup without stripping my skin's oils, I still get blurry vision.

The price was $45 for 5 oz. in a square pump bottle. It gets the job done while protecting and adding moisture to my skin. What I find funny is that this cleanser is only $7 more than their lipstick. The product itself is really sophisticated looking, but L'Huile is definitely on the upper tier in terms of price. I would use this sparingly, it's basically liquid gold!
