Eye Shadow -Chanel -Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eye Shadow

on 12/14/2017 9:21:00 AM

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!

Moisturizers -Chanel -La Solution 10 de Chanel

I have combo acne prone skin oily tzone/normal cheeks .

This is a mediocre cream-gel consistency moisturizer. Its not as moisturing as i had hoped. Upon application it feels really nice and thick but also gel like. I got a bit of shine on my forehead and a greasy feeling on my face after a couple hours. This cream worked okay but i had to add more product under my nose, in between eyebrows and dry spots on my chin(areas where i get dry from acne medicine). Its not the right amount of moisture id like in a cream. The only other problem for me is the 1oz bottle for 80usd which is a bit much for just 10 ingredients. I dont think this would be great for night time because its not as rich if you are looking for a heavier type of cream. I just cant see myself repurchasing every month (maybe 6 weeks at most) for a cream that does the same as something half the price. Ive been using and loving the first aid ultra repair cream and its great for sensitive skin but just a bit greasy after couple hours but this one gives you comfort and great moisure i look for. If you have the money then yes this is a luxury item to splurge for a day cream but sadly, for me i cant do it. :(

If you are cheap like me i just get samples from the counter or get the 5ml bottles on ebay and buy in bulk. I got 3 of the 5ml for 13dollars which equals to half the bottle of the regular 1oz which is 30 ml. Lol yes its super cheap but hey its a nice way to try it out.

Blush -Chanel -Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 370 Elegance

In retrospect, I should have gotten a Bourjois blush as they're made by the same manufacturer as Chanel and the cost would have been considerably less.
In any event, I do like this Chanel blush which I got thanks to MUA's glowing reviews and in my goal to achieve a 'glowy' look that doesn't look like excess blush.
The shade looks rather plain in the packaging but don't let that fool you. It does impart a subtle look with a soft glow for me which is perfect on my skin tone. (NC30)
For extra oomph, I'll use a bit of liquid or cream blush underneath. (NARS Liquid blushes are fabulous)
I do think that this shade works best on fair to light/medium skin tones; it may work as a highlighter on darker skin tones.
My main complaint is that the powder tends to 'kick up' regardless of what brush I use. The price tag is rather excessive too but it is Chanel. (hence why not five lipsticks)
Would I re-purchase? Only if I can't find a similar shade in the Bourjois line.

Primer/ Corrector -Chanel -Hydra Beauty Flash

This makes my face feel very comfortable even under powder foundation. It absorbed very quickly and the feeling is a nongreasy type of balm. It is moisterizing but not as much as i would like. I suffer from acne prone combo skin and i have dry patches due to the use of acne treatments. But if you have dry skin thats not peeling or cracked this would be a lovely primer. I am still trying this out but it does smooth out my skin and i dont have a tight dry feeling from my le teint powder. If i didnt use this id feel more on the greasier side from just using moisterizer under my foundation. It feels like an invisible protective barrier under powder. Will update as i cont to use this.

Edit- tried this without using acne treatment and it makes my skin look so nice i cant describe it but i know there is a difference when i have this on. It really adds radiance. I had this on for 4 hours and my skin still looks great not even as oily. I wouldnt say this is oil control but it doesnt make me more oily than i already am. But i wouldve been more greasy if i just had moisturizer on. Primers never wowed me in the past and ive always strayed from them. I usually pick very moisterizing ones to try and it always made me feel like i had a film of grease on my skin. I am a powder foundation wearer and this works really great underneath. Chanels great with samples the 5ml bottles can be used probably 3 to 5 times. I actually ordered mine on ebay since i wasnt going near a nordstroms or macys atm. After trying the sample past few days i couldnt help but ordered the full bottle for 55usd on their website. I enjoy ordering from chanel because of their packaging. Love this primer its def a hg status for powder foundation wearers or if you have drier skin.

Pro-
smoothing/silky skin
Adds brightness and radiance
Comfortable
Moisurizing without being greasy
Very nice feel while applying
Non pore clogging
Not a strong smell(light peachy floral scent)
Nice squeezy sanitary bottle

Cons- expensive price for the 1oz bottle
