Liquid -Chanel - Perfection Lumiere Velvet

A beautiful foundation, at least on my mature skin. Does not sit in wrinkles or pores but floats over them, gives light to medium coverage, feels weightless. I love the bottle with its needle nose dispenser and that it is plastic. Easy to squeeze and you can dispense exactly how much you need with no waste. I know people mention a scent but I don't smell much. If there is a scent it is really light.

I found a good match. I'm NC20 in Mac and B20 looks really good on. I have dry, slightly combo skin so I prep my skin well so it doesn't showcase dry areas (I also use retin-A) and have been getting good results with just sunscreen(PC's Resist Skin Restoring Sunscreen Spf 50) under it.

Mascara -Chanel - Inimitable Intense Mascara

on 9/26/2017 5:41:00 AM

This is mu HG mascara! I tried almost everything what's on the market and for me this is the optimum.
It has its flaws, but still it is the best I could find.

My main concerns, if it comes to mascara are: staying power, effect on lashes and whether or not it will cause my lashes to fall out and my eyes to water.

With this mascara I can thick all the boxes. IT stays on untill I take it off in the evening, is is very "caring" for my sensitive eyes and the effect is decent - separated, lenghtened lashes.
It is maybe not the drama-turbo lashes, but elegant, subtle, yet visible. and the same whle day - no smudging, no black freckes under my eyes, no disapearing. Really good product.

Another great thing about this mascara is longevity - if it starts to dry, I just add a drop or two of hyal drops (by bausch & lomb) and maskara is usable for the next 2-3 months without any side effects (this trick with diorshow changed the way it smalled and performed so I had to throw it away).

I will buy again, I am sure, but I think I will alternate between this one and Ciglione by Diego Dalla Palma, which is almost as good (or even better is some areas), but about 30% cheaper.

Fragrance only lasted a about 2 hours but did like the scent.
This would be a nice spring/summer scent.

Makeup Brushes -Chanel - Foundation Brush (Synthetic Fibers)

on 9/25/2017 8:47:00 PM

foto

What. A. Brush! I have a number of foundation brushes, never being completely satisfied with any one. This brush is the first foundation brush that has completely surpassed all of the remaining foundation brushes that I own, including those that cost much more. First, it is a synthetic brush which means that expensive product isn't wasted, unlike my natural-fiber foundation brushes that suck up expensive product. Second, it is very soft, so soft that it does not leave any streaks behind, yet remains extremely precise in its application of product. Third, it is very easy to clean, leaving no fibers behind, and dries quickly.

Chanel, at the time of this writing, has recently revamped their brush line and I cannot comment on the performance of these new brushes. I do know, however, that the brush I have reviewed here is still available on Nordstrom's website, which is where I purchased it. A great brush, definitely worth the money..

Luckily, I found a sample of this in one of my magazines. Tried it yesterday, and couldn't believe how great I looked! It was like I had been Photoshopped. Best foundation I have ever tried. I'm running out to buy it today.

What a disappointment, it last one day! Seriously, it chips easily. The colour is definitely amazing but it is too expensive and the
performance so poor. The ingredients aren’t also the healthiest.

Cleansers -Chanel - Blanc Purete Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser

on 9/23/2017 8:24:00 PM

I’ve had this cleanser for a good 6 mos & not even put a dent in it. I use the green toner with it & my super oily skin is being tamed! It cleanses off all the sebum from the night before (I use this in the AM), it controls oil, even complexion out it is $$ but the tube may last me another 6 mos at this rate. =] #winning I’ll rebuy this most def. it cleanses without overstripping.

Cleansers -Chanel - Sublimage Essential Comfort Cleanser

Just bought my second tube. I guess that says it all. Lovely, lovely cleanser. And no skin problems with this cleanser! No clogged pores, bumps or dry, flaky skin, nothing. Only cannot-stop-touching-my-face-very-soft, clean skin. The cleanser melts into your skin and while massaging it in it turns into an oil. Then I start massaging with wet hands, and remove the than milky substance with a flannel/cloth. My skin feels supersoft after cleansing and is indeed very clean. I use it to take of my make-up. But not for eye make-up, I personally prefer to use a separate cleanser for that, since I have very sensitive eyes, and I wear contacts.
The tube will last you forever, I think I used my previous tube for at least 6 months, and used it twice a day. Also I only buy it when there is a discount on Chanel ;-) I pay around €63,-- which is still steep, but good value for money.

Lip Gloss -Chanel - Brilliant Scintillant Sparkling Lipgloss

I got this one as a gift. The number 666 I believe. It's a nice lip gloss. Not sticky with a shimmer. But for low income People, not worth it. Just mix coconut oil, Vaseline, shea butter, a few drops of vit e, pigment from old lipstick or blush, some glitter from shadow and voila! You have nutritious nourishing lip colour . I would buy this if I have cash to burn.

Fragrances -Chanel - No.5

Channel number 5 used to be my mom's favourite until formulation was changed to add synthetic fragrance. People like my mom know the difference right away. Chanel, why? Is it because the bees are dying? Now we like to use essential oils from trusted sources. We stopped buying department store fragrances unless we know it is all natural .Why pay money for contributors of hormonal imbalance? We only buy perfumes that are 100% natural. We still have leftover fragrances from purchases of decades ago and samples.


Lipstick -Chanel - Rouge Allure Velvet

My mom likes this brand lipstick so far. (Latest one purchased 2016) She is very picky with her lipstick. She says it's smooth , pigments are beautiful keeps her lips soft. If it is reformulated and not for the better she will know as she is very sensitive with cosmetics. I hope, specially high end brands will focus on improving high quality of their product and not end up using cheap fillers or alternative cheap items. Customers who buy for quality and not brand will know . Currently, my mom also uses Bite lipsticks and Ysl .


Polishes -Chanel - Organdi

on 9/21/2017 1:05:00 PM

I'm surprised there aren't more reviews for Organdi. I'm wearing it right now and love it. It's a medium dusty pink, the perfect polish for the office or for days when you want your nails to look good/done but don't feel like anything quirky or loud. The brush is skinny but easy to control, and the formula evens out on the second coat although I could've gone with a third. I layered this over Nails Inc. NailKale base coat and it's wearing beautifully. I even showered and washed my hair approximately 45 minutes after doing my nails, no top coat, and my nails weren't wrecked. This is what I wanted Nails Inc. Mayfair Lane to look like on me (it was a pinch too pastel and cool against my warm skintone). Definitely recommend!

Fragrances -Chanel - 1932

What an odd little duck. I have a sample and it's not unpleasant, at all. It's as if Youth Dew Amber Nude and Timbuktu had a baby and someone dressed it in a Daytons department store bag - it's complexly spiced plastic, only it doesn't have the throw of the first or the wear of the second. And then, true to previous reviews, two hours in it's gone. Kind of fun, but not my choice when Timbuktu does the same thing better.


Moisturizers -Chanel - La Solution 10 de Chanel

on 9/20/2017 1:49:00 PM

La Solution 10 is a thick scent free moisturizer in a beautiful sleek pump packaging.
I find it quite difficult to spread over my face (several pumps are needed). It absorbs fast and it doesn't leave any residue on face or on hands. Very pleasant experience, except the fact that it stings for couple of minutes.
I have combination (normal to dry) sensitive dehydrated skin, yet my forehead becomes shiny greasy mess in about an hour when I use this.
But the worst is that La Solution 10 contains high dose of Lauroyl lysine (amino acid made from coconut taffy acid that prevents skin from 'breathing') and it clogged all my pores. I do not have large pores, but it looks like every tiny little one is clogged. My skin was clear before I start using this, I haven't changed anything else in my skincare, makeup or diet, but now it's as bumpy as sandpaper.
I passionately hate this product!
