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.

Mascara -CHANEL -Le Volume De Chanel

I'm surprised that so many people like this mascara.

Pros:
- extra thick very black voluminous lashes.

Cons:
- the formula is very wet, that results in spikey lashes with mascara clumps;
- the brush is not designed to separate the lashes, it puts them all together and makes it impossible to reduce the amount of clumps;
- it smudges;
- it's a nightmare to take it off, even with a waterproof mascara remover.

Not for me.


Foundations -CHANEL -Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

This foundation says "healthy glow", but don't expect those dewy finish - I find this foundation more matt side than the dewy side, which happens to be the perfect match for my combination skin (a touch dry side). The texture of the foundation is amazing - one of my favourites of this foundation - more like mousse than cream. Very light, spreads on to the face evenly with my fingers, and although it doesn't cancel out completely, it gives enough coverage to any imperfections. It is surprisingly long wear too, but without any dryness or undesirable stretchy feeling over my face. I also like the bottle design too, it's pump so no mess & will keep the product clean & protected. 1 push is more than enough for me to cover the face and to do some top up on my nose & cheeks where pores are more visible. Another amazing part of this foundation is that it covers my pores too, giving foggy effect over to it but won't make the skin dry so it doesn't get shiny. Perfect foundation for me so far.

Lip Gloss -CHANEL -Rouge Double Intensité Ultra Wear Lip Color - All Shades

on 7/14/2018 12:06:00 PM

If longwear liquid lipsticks are too drying or too matte, you may like this. It’s packaged where one end is the pigment (with a doe foot sponge applicator) and the other end is a clear gloss (with a lip brush applicator). The color is very pigmented and has a velvety matte finish. Before I apply the color, I wipe a bit off the sponge applicator and then use a light hand. It’s very easy to build up the Intensity. The sponge applicator also makes it easy to apply around your lip line. If I make a mistake, I can usually fix it quickly before it sets. Once the clear gloss is applied over the color, you lips feel like you’re wearing a comfortable gloss that’s not too thick. I only touch up with the clear coat at lunch and before dinner. The color doesn’t budge. The only downside is that Chanel offers only 15 or so shades. I wish they had 50 shades!

Liquid -CHANEL -Perfection Lumiere Velvet

on 7/13/2018 11:54:00 AM

This is one of the most beautiful foundations I came across.
I have oily skin, sensitive, dried-out skin. Usually I have pimples and acne, but now they are more or less tamed. I believe it is due to Emu Oil and Salcura Antiac. I recommend both if you struggle with adult acne.

The foundation is very easy to apply, spread and buff. I find it to be really stress-free when it comes to its application.

It sets Demi-matte, but very velvet smooth. It fills up all my pores making my skin look baby soft. It covers minor redness, but offers medium coverage, no more.
It is not transfer free (have to clean up my phone each time) but it stays put during whole day. I do not have to reapply it.
Currently it’s 30 degC here and sometimes it’s very humid and rainy and the foundation acts nice never mind the weather.
I do become shiny after few hours of wear but nothing serious or problematic. You can pay it off with any paper - even with toilet paper.

The good: stays put, doesn’t oxidize, doesn’t separate, dewy, no pores, even and light
The bad: not transfer free

I do not like the packaging. I wish there was a transparent line somewhere just to see how much foundation is left.

I have the shade B20 which is my transition shade. It is darker than eg Urban Decay Skin 2.0 but lighter than YSL Touché Eclat B40. In range with Guerlain Aqua N2.
Beige-to-yellow, quite neutral. No red pigments noticeable. This is important for me since I have problems with redness on my cheeks.

Powder -CHANEL -LE TEINT ULTRA TENUE (ultrawear flawless compact foundation) Powder Foundation

foto

This is a perfectly nice powder foundation compact. The compact itself is very stylish and has a nice quality mirror & comes with a nice quality sponge & the spong compartment is ventilated. The sponges do was up nicely & Chanel sales reps will give you replacement sponges anytime too. I bought it to touch up my make up on the go. In my opinion it really needs a spritz of Fix+ to look nice. I usually use a loose powder such as my La Mer, Laura Mercier, Ben Nye or Coty airspun to set my concealer and foundation. A couple of times when I have been late for work & in a rush I have used this very sparingly with a brush to set my undereye & foundation and it did work very nicely. I don't think I enjoy it as much as the Diorskin Forever powder foundation compact which has been my HG compact for many years.
This is a very light coverage velvety smooth powder that evens out the skin & helps to minimise the look of pores. If you use it with a brush it is a very barely there coverage but used with the sponge you are able to get medium coverage though it will look powdery so a finishing spray is a must. I have never used this product without foundation as always use a liquid foundation.
It can even be made to look Glowy almost dewy if you spray over Mac Fix+ Pinklite it literally melts into the skin and the Fix+ pinklite leaves a gorgeous glow and leaves the powder undetectable even when I've touched up a few times. Then I set with Urban Decay all nighter & it lasts very nicely. I would say with fix+ and all nighter it lasts 8 hours. I would definity buy it again but still prefer my Diorskin forever compact.

Fragrances -CHANEL -Allure for women

foto

Not for me. I don’t like jasmine and it’s presented in most Chanel fragrances including Allure.
I find the scent to be commercial, not as unique as niche fragrances. It’s generic. A bit artificial and cheap for the price.
Not a bad scent by any means, but nothing to be excited about.

One of the best eye creams I ever tried! Works on all usual concerns like fine lines, puffiness and darkness. Must say that for the latter it is probably the best I ever tried. There is a serum concentrate from same line specific to eye are to use before... both together must be the bomb. Will buy next time go through an airport dutyfree. Love Chanel skincare and makeup!

Treatments (Eye) -CHANEL -Hydra Beauty Gel Yeux

Ok....first the brand...Chanel! Omg! Luxurious richness high end youthful serum. Its like a magic potion of youth. I had a sample from my magazine and I was super impatient to try it. I am huge on being able to actually see and feel a difference in just one use. If not i lose interest and figure it is not worth my time. The results were mind blowing. I have like flushes pinkish skin that i cant stand, it made my face not only smell good and feel soft but i had a beautiful glow and the flushed redness was gone. I could not bare to put any makeup on my own beautiful face. I refuse to cover it. I know i saw the difference when all the sudden my husband said i looked really beautiful today and if i was wearing face makeup. That right there, yes! Magic potion!


Primer/ Corrector -CHANEL -Le Blanc Light Creator Brightening Makeup Base SPF 40/PA+++

This is perfection in a bottle! I mix a few drops in the palm of hand with the day cream so application is flawless and super easy. Finish with the Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 and get the best ever makeup’s coverage plus considerable SPF since Le Blanc also has 40. Best make up base I ever tried as it color corrects + imparts real light from within.

Fragrances -CHANEL -Chance Eau Fraiche

on 6/30/2018 4:13:00 PM

Any time I order from Chanel, they always send me a couple of samples with my order. This was one of the samples I received. It has been sitting in my parfum cupboard with a ton of other samples for at least two years now. I want to try to use up a lot of my samples, so today after my bath, I chose Chance eau Fraiche as it seemed a good choice for this extremely hot weather.

I agree with many other reviewers that it is a nice fragrance. It is fresh and refreshing indeed, and it is a very good choice for hot, sticky weather such as we have at the moment. However, I do not think it is worth Chancel prices, and if I wanted to purchase a fresh, citrus type fragrance, I would opt for the dreamy Fleurs de Cedrat from Guerlain, but this is my own personal taste. I am sure others would opt for the Chanel.

I rated this fragrance three lippies, but if I had been able to do, I would have rated it two and half because whilst it smells nice enough, for a Chanel, I do not find it special in any way, and as I said before, I think it is overpriced for what it is. I cannot imagine this fragrance could possibly offend anyone, so it could be worn virtually anywhere day or night. I also think it is quite unisex. It projects nicely and has decent silage for the first couple of hours, but then it becomes a faint skin scent. Longevity is not very good on my skin.

As always, if possible, try before you buy.

Fragrance: 4/10
Silage: 5/10
Projection: 5/10
Longevity: 4/10

Fragrances -CHANEL -Coco Mademoiselle

foto

This is my favorite perfume.
Usually I get the 6.8 edu the perfume, this time I decided to get the perfume itself thinking it will be stronger and long lasting. The perfume arrived in unsecured cap and more than half of perfume got wasted. I am totally disappointed because it is expensive perfume ( and I love it) but they could make the bottle and cap more secure ( like the other sizes).
I’ll call Macy’s for refund or replacement and keep you updated.
