I would and will buy this again. I love it! It’s close to coco mad so if you liked Coco mad you may like this. It’s distinctive in its chanel way, a clean white floral not heavy on aldehyde or soapiness of No 5 but I just say it’s pretty. Probably not appreciated by the young crowd like coco mad is. I think it’s an interesting frag def worth keeping in my collex. The bottle is simple & elegant, spartan. Kind of like this frag.

Treatments (Eye) -Chanel -Hydra Beauty Gel Yeux

on 1/20/2018 7:32:00 PM

1/20-this has a very nice cooling sensation for the eyes and stays a bit tacky for a couple of minutes. it hydrates my eye area very gently and it does not sting the eyes. For now its great id have to check back as i use this more because skincare does not work overnight. Lets see how this bottle will last me, i will check back on here in a month! the bottle is small so i hope it lasts.

2/17- not much difference but its still a nice step and it is moisturizing. I probably skip this and get the le lift a try if i wanted to try just one chanel eye cream. This one is a gel form and for me personally i prefer something thicker at night.


Toners -Chanel -Lotion confort silky soothing toner

on 1/20/2018 5:56:00 PM

I use this for daytime when i wake up to wipe off any oil and dirt from sleeping. If im staying home i dont wash my face, i simply squirt this on some shiseido cotton and go to town. It feels very fresh and does the job of cleaning my skin without stripping. For night time i use this after i take off my makeup with my lait confort cleansing milk, id dry my face with a towel then go in with this toner same i would for my morning routine. I then would put on moisturizer and eye cream and i feel very hydrated and clean. The downside is the squirt bottle it seems wasteful because a lot comes out

Edit- the bottles half way gone after 1 month and im not super crazy about it anymore. Its too pricey so im goin to try another brand

I will not repurchase


Treatments (Face) -Chanel -Hydra Beauty Micro Serum

foto

I tried a sample of this twice, and while I did enjoy the highly unnecessary scent, the serum caused slight burning upon application. The first time I used it I assumed it was just my dry skin, but there will be no third try. It also left a slight film and a bit of a tacky feeling on my skin, which I find is a common trait of hydration boost serums and masks.

This is ridiculously overpriced for what it is though- you would be better off buying either hyaluronic acid or a better formulated cream containing it. Normally I'd be a bit nicer in my reviews, but upon seeing the price of this and the ingredients, I would definitely recommend skipping it. Over a hundred dollars for water, glycerine, fragrance and a few drops of active ingredients! No, no, no.

Makeup Brushes -Chanel -Powder Brush

on 1/18/2018 10:04:00 PM

I don’t know which number of brush this is. It’s a mini powder brush from a set I got for $125 sadly I can’t find the rest of the brushes just this but I use it for evthing from blending hi-lite & concealer to loose powder it’s a mini brush. It does shed every so often a few hairs it’s annoying bc my Charlotte Tilbury, Inglot, MAC & ELF (dude...elf!) brushes never shed. I tucked away the other brushes & now I can’t remember where I put them. Arghhh! They will turn up. This is my kind of evthing brush except fdtn (& eyes of course) it is the last thing touching on my face besides lips go on very last. I’d be lost without this little guy! I’ll find my brushes sooner or later. No biggie yet not time to panic (yet) I’ll report back when I find my set fwiw :)

Lotions/ Creams -Chanel -No 5 Body Lotion

on 1/16/2018 4:23:00 PM

foto

WARNING : This product does not smell like No.5.
Having said that.... it still smells DIVINE!
My first review of this product was terrible since I was very disappointed that it does not smell of No.5 at all. But I started using it on a regular basis and now I'm addicted to it. The scent is so good and it lasts so long on the skin and the texture of the lotion is so pleasant that I'm worried I'm going to run out of it sooner than I expected.
I'm definitely going to be buying another bottle.
BUT IT DOES NOT SMELL OF No 5, neither edp nor edt nor parfum.


Blush -Chanel -Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 72 Rose Initiale

on 1/15/2018 7:43:00 PM

foto

This for me is such a nice blush shade that does not lean orange. Ive tried rose ecrin, rose bronze, elegance and rose petale. They all looked very orange on my light pink undertone skin. I am les beiges n.10 chanel foundation I'm beige rose 22 and mac nw20, nars concealer creme brûlée , tarte shape tape in light.(i hope this helps those who have my similar skintone) i wanted something on the natural flush pink side. This shade is neutral on my cheeks, its not too cool or warm. Its just a "i see my crush" blushing bashful pink but not like those cool tone babydoll pinks that looks ridiculously fake on the cheeks. This blush was recommended for me and i knew i had to get it once the SA put it on my cheeks. It looks so pretty and natural i couldn't pass it up. I disliked the other ones I've tried i mentioned earlier because for my personal preference i don't like the peachy look on my skin because i tend to look sallow and unhealthy and its more obvious I'm wearing a blush, so i can't really pull off anything thats bronzey or peachy warm toned blushes. rose initial looks great with mac faux lipstick and some mascara for a very natural yet put together look. i use an angled chanel 10 brush and go ham lol. it never looks overdone. This is my fav powder blush formulation

Powder -Chanel -Les Beiges - Healthy Glow Sheer Powder

on 1/15/2018 7:35:00 PM

I usually use beige rose 22 in chanel but i gotten color matched with n.10 in les beiges because it has more of a pink undertone. the n.20 was a bit yellow on me. I initially really loved the le teint powder foundation in chanel but that one was getting too heavy/dry for my liking. I needed something light. This powder is light coverage but will add a little color to your skin. For me, i use my shape tape concealer on areas i need and i put this powder over to set it with this. It has a great radiance to it and if you are looking for a silky finishing powder on the natural side, this would be your choice. The only complaint i have would be how i feel like it might be congesting my skin after using it for a couple weeks. Also it doesnt control oil.

Pros-
Nondrying
Natural radiance
Great for Touchup
Doesnt feel heavy

Con-
Price
Smell/fragrance might bother some people
No coverage
Can clog pores
Not good for oily skin

Edit (after 1.5month usage) - I wont be repurchasing because im super oily and i want to look for a more mattefying powder.

*i returned it and got myself the perfection lumiere velvet and loveeee that so much. No need to powder. Anyways watch out if you are oily! This is not for us greaseballs out there!

Misc Beauty Tools -Chanel -Compact Mirror

on 1/15/2018 12:29:00 PM

This lives in my purse for touch ups. My MAC mirror lives on my vanity if that’s saying anything. They are both chic but I like the chanel mirror much better. It’s slim & feels luxe. It was $42 (eep!) but a mirror is something ev woman should have I agree unless you don’t wear MU. I lost the velvet case but pulling this out makes me feel super bourgeois like I’m a real lady. Nothing tacky about this mirror. Lights are kind of tacky.

This serum is quite rich. I only need 1 pump for my whole face it really hydrate my skin after use. It give a little sticky feel and shine but I top with moisturizer and loose powder.

Fragrances -Chanel -coco mademoiselle body oil spray

on 1/15/2018 9:47:00 AM

I gave the edp version of this fragrance one lipstick only, but the oil version is 5 lipsticks. It's beautiful. It's soft and creamy, and comfortable. While the perfume gives me a headache, this is soothing. Very good indeed.
It's quite lasting on me. I sprayed it about 4pm, and it lasted till 10 am on my clothes although I didn't spray directly on them.
But if you're looking for the hydration qualities of an oil, you will be disappointed. I believe the purpose of this product is just another way of perfuming the skin, not moisturizing it.
