Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Coco Shine Monte Carlo

on 5/25/2018 6:24:00 AM

This product feels great on and looks so natural
pros: smooth application, not sticky, "natural"/subtle pigment, hydrating

It is pricey, but in my opinion— worth it for a daily product. Yes, you have to reapply but that can be fun to freshen up during the day between work/classes.

I previously bought the YSL sheer lipstick to a pigmented "gloss", but this seems more sheer for the look i would like to achieve in school (a more natural look). the YSL can become my "special occasion" lipstick.

This is, of course, more for those looking for a subtle look and not bold/opaque etc.

Fragrances -Chanel -Coco Mademoiselle

Why I didn't try this scent till now I'll never know?!? I was thinking how bummed I was about how Parfum Initial was d/c'd and how I loved the patchouli note in that fragrance and would love to find another patchouli based scent to love. I didn't want a dupe just a good perfume. When I looked at the notes for Coco Mad and they spoke to me so I thought I'd give it a try.

White flowers, citrus, vetiver, musk, and the other notes sold me so I blind purchased it. So happy i did because I adore it so much I use it daily over my signature PI. I've also gotten many you smell good compliments and I totally forgot I had this on. The lasting power and silage are excellent! First this lasts on my skin overnight and the sillage is moderate to heavy depending on how much I use.

The dry down on this is amazing!! Its a beautiful floral with i catch whiffs of an earthy patchouli that's not masculine at all. This fragrance just smells good and I love it! I don't care that its a mass marketed a good scent is a good scent! Love,:)

Moisturizers -Chanel -La Solution 10 de Chanel

I had two sample tubes of this, which surprisingly is lasting me a while! I find a small amount of the product goes a long way. My skin can be so sensitive to new products and after a really awful few months with my skin last year, I spent the following 6 months really going back to basics with my skin care.
The product is quite a thick, white crème which spreads easily over the face. I apply to clean, exfoliated skin before bed and my face felt beautifully smooth and hydrated. I woke up to a radiant, plump skin with definite improvement on some fine lines.
That being said, I started using Nivea Creme 2 weeks ago and have had the exact same effect… along with giving me over 6 times the amount of product with a saving of £60.00! If you have the money? Go for it.

Purchased this amazing lipstick in the shade “Secret”. Amazing is all I can say. My other lipsticks bled, forcing me to check my lips all day. But not this one - - lasts throughout the day. Would love one in every color! Worth the $$$.

Masks -Chanel -Hydra Beauty Masque de Nuit Au Camélia Hydrating Oxygenating Overnight Mask

on 5/22/2018 3:38:00 PM

On the Chanel website it is stated that "A creamy overnight mask that, after transforming into dew-like droplets, helps skin oxygenate during the night. Upon waking, signs of fatigue appear diminished and the complexion looks rested with a fresh radiant glow." It is a leave on overnight mask.

The product is indeed formulated in a way that it does supply hydration to the skin through many hours evenly and continuously. The Japanese emulsion-technology allows the formula to "water-drop" "mimicking" real water droplets that are visible at application and will absorb into the skin immediately leaving a refreshing and light yet not dry or drying feeling on the skin.

This is the exact same technology that Urban Decay have used in their Hot Springs Hydrating Gel that cost a fraction of the price of this Chanel "mask". (Review for the Urban Decay cream you'll find at https://www.makeupalley.com/product/showreview.asp/ItemId=199024/Hot-Springs-Hydrating-Gel-Rehab-Makeup-Prep/Urban-Decay/Treatments-(Face)

This mask from Chanel can be used also as a light refreshing day cream (just as well as a night cream).
It contains a light emollient of synthetic origin (Isononyl Isononanoate), dimethicone and a crosslinked silicone emulsifier that also lends elegance and a flattering finish on the skin, along with some effective humectants (Propanediol, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol).
The only notable and proven actives in the formula are Sodium Hyaluronate, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate and Copper Gluconate that have anti-oxidant properties and can enhance the appearance of the surface of the skin. Although the amount that is used here is unfortunately very minuscule.

Comparing this product to the Urban Decay one, it will leave a more perceptible residue after application, albeit very light. The finish is almost indistinguishable, the only giveaway is that the emollients in the Chanel mask will leave a more perceptible moisturizing feeling longer.
If you have oilier skin or live in a warm/humid climate, the product from Urban Decay will be more favoured. It is after all built on a true to the core Japanese emulsion technology! (The one from Chanel uses the same technology but pared with a less"silicone" and hence "trendier" emollient that also meets the Western audience.)
If you have dryer skin and like to feel replenished even in hotter weather, the mask from Chanel might be more suitable. Note that it is still a very light product and will not feel as a regular moisturizer (nor a mask)!

It contains fragrance that one might find too strong. (The moisturizer from Urban Decay is completely fragrance free.)

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Isononyl Isononanoate, Propanediol, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Dimethicone/PEG-10/15 Crosspolymer, Camellia Japonica Flower Water, Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Chloride, Parfum (Fragrance), Sodium Citrate, Dipropylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Magnesium Aspartate, Zinc Gluconate, Citric Acid, Phytic Acid, Copper Gluconate, Tocopherol, Sodium Benzoate, Il15A
