Fragrances -Chanel -Coco Mademoiselle

My all time parfum aka; my "signature" scent. This is, according to many friends and business colleagues who, I must add, have also purchased the same (Parfum as opposed to the toilette) but although they love the scent, have always complained that it smells completely different on me!!! I put that down to the oriental notes, as being part Chinese, part French in ethnicity, the parfum does smell extremely individualistic no matter who. I have that with another parfum which has strong oriental notes. With Coco Mademoiselle I can wear it to a Board meeting, a shopping trip, a date night or to bed - sans clothes! Yes its slightly expensive but its classic Chanel bottle design, longevity ( this lasts much longer if you use the other skincare range ie shower wash, body cream etc ) layering the scents. Intensity, again layering and top up spritz on pulse spots ensures the fragrance lingers for a long time. Unlike a lot of similar high end beauty perfumes, rather than being obnoxious for a couple of hours and then non existent the next. Coco Mademoiselle becomes your style, your calling card, as its essence embraces your own, it becomes your individual signature scent. A part of you becomes Coco Mademoiselle and a part Coco Mademoiselle becomes you. ☆☆☆☆☆ I LIVE & LOVE THIS SCENT!!!

Powder -Chanel -Vitalumiere Loose Powder

For those who like the look of this foundation but don't want to put mineral oil and parabenes on their face - and spend much less, I would highly suggest to try Clarins Skin Illusion Mineral & Plant Extracts Loose Powder Foundation. It looks as good, maybe with a bit more coverage, it is radiant, it costs much less, is has more in the pot (13g vs 10g) has a better package (the new one) with a retractable brush magnetically attached to the top, and has far better ingredients.
I can't understand how Chanel still put mineral oil and parabenes (!!!) in their products and charge such exorbitant prices.

Tinted Moisturizer -Chanel -Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 / PA++

What an absolutely divine TM! I have sensitive combination skin and have been using this over two weeks now and have really been loving this product.

I am nc37/40 and purchased the shade light deep which is slightly cool toned on my neutral (leaning warm) but since it is a light (almost medium) coverage it’s very forgiving and blends right into the skin and gives you what it says on the bottle, a ‘healthy glow’

First of all the texture. It is so lightly whipped and creamy (not a runny liquid) and is easy to apply with fingers, damp BB or I even a foundation brush (I use Zoeva face shape brush sometimes) it feels like a dream to put on the skin almost like your being pampered and it actually feels like something good is going onto your skin. It is also long lasting, I get around 8 hours in Singapore’s hot and humid climate with a dusting of CT flawless pressed powder in medium.

The thing I probably love most is the finish, it is the most skin like finish I have seen with a TM, glowy but not too glowy and it seems to even out my skin nicely, blur my pores so well it really looks like my skin but better.

The coverage is light and buildable to just under medium but that what I expect from a tinted moisturiser. It has a great SPF30 so good protection too. Perfect for travel as the small bottle carries well in a cosmetic bag and very lightweight packaging.

The only downside on this product is the price and limited shade range, I really wish that Chanel would cater to a wider variety of skin tones (warm and neutrals) and added more deeper shades.

However overall so pleased I found this product! I had previously been using the Laura Mercier Tinted moisturiser in Sand for (I kid you not )12 years!! and I think I can say I like this Chanel one more. Such a a lovely find, feels like I found a treasure and that doesn’t happen often, let’s face it!

Liquid -Chanel -Perfection Lumiere Velvet

It's not a bad foundation, but didn't impress me at all. I have combination skin and occasionally get some peeling here and there, this foundation clung to every little problem area. It does look pretty in the pictures, but definitely can see foundation sitting on the face in the mirror, which isn't the most fabulous look.
Didn't mattify me whatsoever, and I'm not an oily-faced person, just slight oiliness on the T-zone sometimes... and it really oxidized and turned sallow on me after a few hours, which, in my opinion shouldn't be happening with a $50 product. Someone even commented that I look yellow. Definitely requires touch-ups and all that after several hours of wear too.
I did't hate it, and would say it is a very lovely foundation if it was within $20, but at $50- just doesn't perform as well, in my opinion. PerriconeMD's no foundation serum is a thousand times better, this just can't compete.

Tinted Moisturizer -Chanel -Les Beiges Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 / PA++

I really haven’t been bowled over by any of Chanel’s releases in the last couple of years. Most of my purchases have been passed over to my Mom to use up. However, this is a really good product, sheer coverage obvs given it’s a Tinted Moisturiser but more than enough to even out my skin tone and just give that my skin but better look. It’s dewy but not overly so. I have combo to oily skin prone to the oil slick look by afternoon but this just keeps getting better as the day goes on! I’m the lightest shade and it’s a perfect match for my NC10 complexion for reference. Usual Chanel scent which dissipates fairly quickly. If you buy this with reasonable expectations for what it can achieve given it’s just a TM you will not be disappointed.

Fragrances -Chanel -Chance

Hello MUA,
Let's talk about my signature Perfume that I absolutely LOVE and get LOTS of comments on everywhere I go. I've been a faithful Chanel Chance Perfume wearer for 10 years, maybe more. YES, it's expensive.. however VERY Much Worth It!!

SCENTS & DESCRIPTION:
Eau de Parfum Spray. For those who dare to dream, the chance for romance was never greater! The decidedly young scent of CHANCE, an unexpected floral, now pulls out all the stops in Eau de Parfum spray. Notes: citrus accord, hyacinth, iris, jasmine, pink pepper, patchouli, vetiver, amber, white musk, vanilla.
MY REVIEW:
Chanel has always been my favourite brand and I definitely have to tell You, this Chanel perfume has completely mesmerised me. It’s mild and sensual floral fragrance makes you and people around you feel great. What makes this perfume more adorable is its long-lasting smell. I just love this perfume. It's NOT overbearing, it DOESN'T smell like "old lady perfume", which is an insult IMHO! It's Fresh, it's Young, it's Sexy, it's Feminine, it's Very Vibrant & Refreshing!! Sophisticated, it's Empowering! I feel that I can conquer the World confidently! It's not overly done or underly done. Just the right amount of base notes mixed perfectly! YES, I DO recommend it, try it out! Chance's are, you'll fall head over heels, just like I have!
Channel the Godess in you with Chanel Chance!
Hope this review helps those who are on the fence about this perfume or the eau de toilet spray. They BOTH are amazing!

Very light, very summery, very glowy. Obviously it's not supposed to conseal your natural skin so I wouldn't recommend it for someone who likes that. I live the feeling it gives to your skin!

I could never wear any perfume until I was about 36 years old: always too heavy, too fruity, too spicy and full blown headache inducers. I tried this by chance, I didn’t really have any hope having tried so many before. And finally I found it: light and elegant, not young not old, just perfect. I have repurchases this too many times to remember.

Y'all, this is an absolutely gorgeous bronzer. Makes me look alive and sunkissed. Wish it wasn't so insanely pricey, but alas, it is chanel. my only complaint is the scent is quite overpowering and I haven't figured out if it breaks me out a little bit, or if it's just hormones. If you can afford it, this is totally worth the splurge.

This is my #1 migraine inducer, probably due to the patchouli. Be careful if you're prone to headaches from scents. Sorry to be a party pooper!

Fragrances -Chanel -Gabrielle

I received this as a gift and although it’s nice, it’s not for me. This perfume is sophisticated and quite inoffensive. Perfect for daytime wear, dinner with the in laws, wearing to work or to a job interview. The scent is quite fresh and floral but it didn’t ‘wow’ me. Perfume is a very personal choice and what smells good on some people obviously won’t smell as great on others. For myself, I prefer a sweeter fragrance and so I ended up regifting this perfume as it would have been a waste of a nice perfume if I was to keep it. As far as Chanel fragrances go, I have tried them all and whilst I can appreciate the high quality of the ingredients used, I haven’t found one that I loved. Gabrielle is definitely one Chanel’s nicer fragrances though in my opinion.

Glad I got a sample because this turned into bathroom cleanser on me. A scrubber.

Love, love, love! Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 30 is part of the Les Beiges 2018 collection. There are six shades; medium-light is the perfect shade for me. This is a product which actually lives up to its promise, giving my face a glowing, healthy look. It's quite sheer, so don't expect it to cover like a foundation, but it does give the skin a veil of color - and that glow! I've been working really hard recently, not getting enough sleep, so when I get up in the morning I look like cr*p - but I put this on and people actually tell me I look good. There has been only minimal oil breakthrough so far - nothing that blotting sheets can't handle - however, we haven't had hot and humid weather yet, so we'll see.

Moisturizers -Chanel -La Solution 10 de Chanel

My skin immediately breaks into a rash with most products. I was looking for something that would help with my MN dry skin as well as not cause a rash the second I used it. I can’t for the life of me figure out why most “sensitive skin” product contain a fragrance, and was thrilled this didn’t. I use this at night mixed with my Rx acne & rosacea creams, and even as a hand lotion since my hands are as reactive as my face. Due to cost, I’m not positive I’ll consistently purchase, but it turned out to be a great buy for me.
