Mascara -CHANEL -Le Volume Revolution de Chanel

on 8/8/2018 8:17:00 AM

So I couldn't wait to try the new LE VOLUME RÉVOLUTION DE CHANEL extreme volume mascara with the world's first 3D printed brush. All I can say is it is just the same as any high street mascara, nothing special happened here at all. It took a good 5 minutes to build despite being quite thick. Result showed visible flaky clumpy bits and held no curl. Flaked off easily. I will stick with the Volume de Chanel or the Dimensions de Chanel in future. I think the gimmick is just the brush which gave no great effect sadly. Average scores. Feel a bit ripped off at the price actually.

Fragrances -CHANEL -Gabrielle

I really wanted to love this. The fragrance description sounded so lovely. But its so light that I hardly smell anything at all. If you are someone who likes lighter scent you might love this one but I was a little disappointed. I would love this if it was a bit stronger and stayed on the skin a little longer.

Fragrances -CHANEL -Chance Eau Tendre

This is my favorite fragrance of all time. It has replaced my discontinued Gucci Only. Perfumes tend to get very amplified on my skin, so something that goes on clean for some will smell too sharp or powdery on me; fruity or fresh or some will smell sickly sweet or like febreeze on me; nice musky earthy scents will smell overpowering . So when I find a scent that works and that I NEVER fall to get compliments from men, women, total strangers, the neighbors dog......it's a keeper!
I need it in all of its forms. Do they make an IV?????? ;-)
I wanted to LOVE the Frache as well but it got sharp pin me after an hour. Sadness.

Blush -CHANEL -Joues Contraste Powder Blush - Rose Ecrin

A lovely long lasting blush, with a beautiful flush of natural looking colour.
Used with a big fluffy brush, swept over my cheekbones. I have very fair skin and this blush looks lovely.
Would I buy it again, absolutely yes, Chanel’s blush formula is excellent!

Fragrances -CHANEL -Allure Sensuelle

on 8/2/2018 1:31:00 AM

I have been wearing allure sensuelle for 11 years and it’s the sexiest fragrance ever!!so many compliments from men when I wear it and so long lasting on me!!i don’t know why it isn’t so famous as coco noir or Mademoiselle but I can guess:it is a »difficult »scent,it doesn’t suit easily to someone but for me that’s the reason I think it’s one of the most uniques perfumes in the history of fragrances.
I also bought Gabrielle and I loved it,not so sexy as allure but more radiant so I have both,it depends on my mood,I feel sexy??allure sensuelle is MY fragrance
I feel luminous??Gabrielle is MY fragrance!!
Advice:the best fragrance is different for everyone,I have tried many popular products an nothing was for me!try before you buy if the fragrance stays on you!!for every woman there is a different fragrance which stays on her!!

I don’t like sweet perfumes so I love Gabrielle Chanel because it’s NOT so sweet,it’s a unique floral scent which lasted on me too long!!but I don’t think it a girly perfume,it’s too feminine,this is its advantage of course!so buy it if you are over 30 :)
Its other advantage is that it smells completely different in each woman that’s why it is so unique.We should understand that there are beautiful perfumes which are not for everyone it depends on our skin and personalities
For me allure sensuelle is the number one and Gabrielle number two
I have been wearing allure sensuelle for 11 years and nothing else stays on me but I discovered Gabrielle and I am very happy since it stays on me too!!
I loved the bottle also!!
Pièce of advice:don’t buy perfumes without testing them on your skin for a day or two to understand if it suits you!!only a perfume which stays on our skin is »our »perfume
REMEMBER:Olivier Polge created it!he has also created Dolce Gabbanna the One for men which I love on my husband!Learn the history and the details about the creator of a fragrance and smell also other fragrances made from him!
Choosing a perfume is not an easy thing it is the smell of our body!
I can’t wait buying also the body lotion when it comes out because I hate different smells on me,they destroy the final smell.Of course I put it on my clothes too for a better,long lasting result

Lipstick -CHANEL -Rouge Coco Shine - Boy

on 7/29/2018 9:22:00 PM

I never finish lip products, and usually wear glosses not lipsticks, but Boy is in a category of its own! I love the color, the “glossy” effect, and how smooth it is. It’s not very pigmented, but that’s what I prefer. Just a wash of color. You can wear this casually or dressed up. I’m on my second tube and will repurchase again.

Fragrances -CHANEL -Cristalle

foto

I would have to call this my second favorite fragrance ever (see my review for my first favorite, Royal Doulton). This fragrance is quite interesting, it is a little bit lemony but not too sharply so but still manages to have a soft base not and slightly floral middle notes. None of the notes take over and the fragrance lasts quite well without being excessively strong. One of the few scents I can wear all day every day without getting a headache. I guess the well balance ingrediants and the great variety of ingrediants justifies the price. Packaging is a bit boring. Wish they'd expand the line with maybe a talc or a sold perfume. Reminds me forever summer the first time I bought it my summer spent in London and youthful romantic adventures. Ahhh the memories!!

Fragrances -CHANEL -Cristalle Eau Verte

I've been a long time wearer of the original Cristalle and was excited to give this a try hoping for a new favorite but I was very disappointed. There is nothing of brightness or juiciness of the original, in fact is just smelled a bit flat and dirty to me.

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

on 7/20/2018 6:06:00 AM

Les Beiges tinted moisturiser is a gorgeous product! As it is a tinted moisturiser, it has a very lightweight feel on the skin. It feels very soft and spreads easily. I get a light-medium coverage from this product. It covers my redness and dark circles but allows my freckles to show through. It simply perfects the skin, and gives it an even colour and a healthy glow. I use my fingers to apply this, as it gives good coverage and prevents product wastage. It lasts well on the skin, without separating or caking. It does transfer though, so I recommend to set with a light dusting of powder. It also has quite a strong scent, the sales associate told me it is a mix of watermelon, jasmine and peach. To me, it smells like watermelon candy. The scent is quite strong and lingers, though disappears in about 20 minutes. All up, this is a gorgeous product, I love how it makes my skin look and feel. I would highly recommend it.

Fragrances -CHANEL -No 5 l'eau

foto

Oh my I love this smell!
I was all set to (re) purchase eau premiere- I bought it when it first came out but shortly after purchased the no5 pure parfum and so poor eau premiere, lovely as it was, sat neglected until I gave it away....
So getting primed to buy eau premiere I tested it on one wrist to confirm my choice, and l’eau on the other to rule it out. I had been given a sample of l’eau last year and spritzed it and though ‘meh’ because at the time I was working through a la nuit, Mohave ghost, and Bella freud’s 1970. I had my work cut out!

But now, now is different. Eau premiere seemed too powdery, too thick (which of course it isn’t on its own) next to the lightness of l’eau. But I was most surprised to find the drydown was delightfully complex AND, contrary to many other reviews and probably only by chance based on my skin chemistry, moved through an elegant iteration of allure before settling into a fresh, less obtrusive, less bold but by no means boring, no5 crysalis.
That might not be the best noun for the state of this perfume when it reaches its climax, however, it isn’t a ghost, nor a younger sister or daughter or any other youthful avatar in my more experienced opinion. It’s just cooler than the original and cooler than eau premier, again, in my opinion. And cool is timeless too. And it suits me just fine.....

Brows -CHANEL -Perfect Brows

on 7/18/2018 9:11:00 PM

Perfect applied with a short angled brush (provided) to beef up skimpy areas on the brows, but in a very subtle, not beetle-browed fashion. My old set, which I have had forever, also came with a mascara type brush for brushing the brows (excellent) and a lost, much lamented tweezer which had a plastic tip so it never pinched or broke the skin. I gave it up to an overly enthusiastic airline security guard - maybe she wanted it for herself?

Powder -CHANEL -Double Perfection Compact [DISCONTINUED]

It feels heavy, looks heavy, it has distinctive makeup smell. The sponge that comes with isn't good.
It spreads easily and applies evenly but looks like a layer of makeup over the skin.

Mascara -CHANEL -Le Volume De Chanel

I love this mascara.it is a wet mascara which at times I dislike. This one is perfect. You can apply heavily or lighter for a more natural look. I never have problems with clumping and I find it lengthens and thickens beautifully. I cannot wait to try the brown and blue versions of this mascara. It comes off easily with my regular balm cleanser. Love love love it.
