Fragrances -Chanel -Gabrielle

Thirty years ago, as a teenager who wanted to be sophisticated and chic, I wore Chanel No. 5 because what could be more chic than Chanel? Next I wore Chanel’s Coco. I loved, loved, loved that perfume. It was probably a bit “mature” for me at the time, but it was the start of my love for Oriental fragrances. I was also fascinated by the story of an ambitious orphan, Gabrielle Chanel, rising from humble beginnings to being THE arbiter of style.

To say that I was intrigued by a new Chanel fragrance, the first in 15 years, to be named Gabrielle would be an understatement. I saw several magazine articles describing this new perfume and thought that I might be wearing Chanel again. After all these years, I still want to smell sophisticated and chic. I read that this fragrance was “quiet” and it was based on four white flowers: jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom and tuberose. I enjoy all of those flowers in perfumes. I liked the golden glow of the print ad. It sounded like Gabrielle would make a great everyday fragrance; that it would be pretty, but allow the wearer to be the one to shine.

I went to the perfume counter at a high end department store and their display of Chanel bottles was gorgeous. I picked up the bottle of Gabrielle and admired the elegant simplicity of the glass. The magic unfortunately ended there for me. I find Gabrielle to be long lasting on my dry skin. But the fragrance never became the luminous perfume I hoped it would be. I had imagined Gabrielle might be a really pretty perfume like Jour d’Hermes, which is also based on white flowers. There is the essence of something lovely at its heart, but for me it never took flight. For the first time, a Chanel fragrance ended up smelling like acrid hairspray on me.



Primer/ Corrector -Chanel -Hydra Beauty Flash

Can be used mixed in the day cream and makes application much easier, no layering as I am already applying a serum before the mix of the two. Gives a moisture boost that last four hours to keep make up set and fresh. I am a big fan of the Le Jour, La Nuit and Le Weekend series, which can now only be found in special doors and online (why??!!!); and must say these three and the CC cream all work beautifully in tandem. Very sleek and modern skincare, almost without using classic day and night cream textures just serums and SPF 50 all in the lightest textures of this world!

Lip Treatments -Chanel -Rogue Coco Baume

This is not an intensely moisturizing balm. It is more of a maintenance product, to be used on healthy lips. If your lips are chapped, peeling, and/or dehydrated, the formula is not strong enough to revive and repair. I like it as an alternative to lip color, worn daily on its own, or under a lip color as a light moisturizing prep. I have an issue with popular colorless lip moisturizers like Chapstick, Carmex, and the EOS lippies. All of them make my lips feel dry and thirsty for the product as soon as it has disappeared. It's creates a very uncomfortable feeling that I hate. The Chanel Rouge Coco Baume does not do this to my lips, and as a result, has earned a spot in my makeup arsenal.


Eye Shadow -Chanel -Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eye Shadow

Being a fan of cream eye shadow I purchased the color 810 Pourpre Profond. The color looks interesting in the jar and is a plum color on the lid. The brush included works very well with the cream. I would have to fault it on the score of Longwear as it does fad on me somewhat but I am not using a primer with it. The colors are not overly full of glitter but give a nice finish. I like it enough to try a couple of other colors.


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

This suits my dry skin. This foundation is so lightweight that it feels like a tinted moisturizer. It kind of reminds me of Nars tinted moisturizer. Because its light and still have coverage enough, thumbs up on this one!

I have B30 which suits my NC25 skintone perfectly!
