BB Cream -Chanel -CC cream

I have a few Chanel make up products that i swear by but this by far was the most overpriced and disappointing.

Unfortunately it doesn't last long on my face (i have dry to normal skin) and throughout the day it started to look a bit patchy on me. There are better CC creams out there that are worth the money. Unfortunately this one just doesn't cut it.

Love this product except the price is really expensive. My shade is 20 clair It sets my makeup look smooth and sets my makeup easier. I have 2 powder for my HG products, the other one is laura mercier. actually I dont know the different of those product. Haha But two of them really look nice on my face.


Loose Powders -Chanel -Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder

This is my HG powder since it doesn't make my face old nor it accentuates textures in my skin. I hate to admit that I already have one as a back-up just in case Chanel discontinues this powder.

A lot of people would say "what's the hype about this powder" " I can always name a cheaper brand that can essentially do the same". Unfortunately, I have tried them all i.e. Laura Mercier Loose Translucent, Coty Airspun, MAC setting powder, RCMA No Color Powder, NARS Light Reflecting Powder, Maybelline Fit Me Loose Powder, CoverFX Perfect Setting powder and this list goes on and I am still coming back to my Chanel.

You know why, because it works for me. If you can find something that works for you. Great! If not, try this one out and see if you would like it.

For reference:

I have an NC 20-25 skin tone and I am using 20 Clair which is a perfect match.

Also, this is the only loose powder that works for every single foundation I own :)

Powder -Chanel -Vitalumiere Loose Powder

As long as it is applied with a bigger brush this is absolute perfection in powder form. Applied over the Sublimage SPF 50 primer it gives the ultimate touch to skincare routine. Nobody does it better than Chanel!

Powder -Chanel -Vitalumiere Loose Powder

I keep coming back to this time and time again, it just has the most perfect my skin but better effect. It does not provide fantastic coverage but with concealer underneath I just really like the way my skin just looks better as the day goes on. I have almost all of the Chanel foundations and I have a love, hate relationship with the perfume contained within them, I don’t mind the scent as such just don’t feel it’s necessary to add it in such high concentration to the foundations and skin care. This one however, is scented but not overly so and I can’t detect it once it is applied. I really like the brush it comes with but it’s too dense for my liking with the powder so I use the bare minerals brush instead. I would have liked to have seen a flip lid contained within the packaging to stop the powder from coating the inside of the pot especially when travelling but you can’t have everything!! I have 2 shades 10 and 20 and flip between the 2 depending on the season or I mix them. It’s certainly not cheap but honestly I can’t see it disappointing many people!

Liquid -Chanel -Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

Edit: I had to stop using this because it gave me severe cystic acne.

I'm really impressed with this foundation. It glides on like a dream and blends so beautifully. Makes face look smooth and poreless. Now, people have said that the foundation is virtually undetectable on the skin. I'd say that if somebody saw you walking down the street, they wouldn't be able to tell you had any on. I have dry skin so this lasts the entire day on me (I don't powder).

Treatments (Face) -Chanel -Hydra Beauty Micro Serum

foto

I’m only half way through my 30ml bottle and I have already bought a 50ml. This serum is fantastic. It’s the only product that has truly addressed my dehydration concerns. I wouldn’t necessarily call it lightweight, but it definitely isn’t too heavy for my oily skin. If anything, I just give it a couple of minutes to sink in before the rest of my regime. It really helps plump up the skin and provides lasting hydration, so it does exactly what it says on the tin!

Foundations -Chanel -Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

Average foundation not the best. Coverage claims to be thick/full but I have found better foundations. The shade range is also limited and their colours tend to be more pink toned which does not work for my Asian skin tone. I won't purchase this again.

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

I love this so much! I actually bought a backup for a backup. I have it in the #10 Rosee shade.

I only use it on certain areas of my face, namely over top of my cheeks all the way to slightly up the sides of bridge of nose, and carry under my eyes and outward. Sometimes I add a dab between my eyebrows and on my chin.

The really cool thing about this, is it shines through and really does create light, no matter what products are added over top of it. (that I've used, at least) It's good to keep this in mind too, because when the light hits my face certain ways, it would be obvious if I did not apply it symmetrically.

I did upload a photo taken recently, it is attached to this review and also to the RMS contour bronze review. In that review I listed the products worn on face in the photo.


Fragrances -Chanel -No.5

I gave this a 4 simply for the fact that it can come off as strong and overwhelming at first spray.

When I originally received this from my mother and tried it I though “old lady” perfume. But you have to let this fragrance settle and mellow to see how it truly shines. It has a mellow sweetness to it complimented with an array of musk, woody, floral scents. It’s not for everyone but it has grown on me. I would wear this on a night out when I want to feel sophisticated. Instead of saying it’s “old lady” it would be better to describe it as saying “it’s not for little girls”

I probably wouldn’t buy it again because of the price.

Liquid -Chanel -Perfection Lumiere Velvet

This is my favorite foundation for now bec. it doesn't look heavy even though it has been applied hurriedly. It feels so light and makes the skin glow and look smooth. Retouching with powder after 2 hours on the T-zone is needed since it doesn't absorb oil that much. I will keep on buying this bec. I have been complimented about how good my skin looks whenever I use this foundation.


Fragrances -Chanel -Gabrielle

I love the scent, and longevity is not a problem for me. It is radiant and lovely on my skin.

Now, it took me a few tries to get it. Was not love at first sniff. I was disappointed the first time, definitely had Expectations and first try barely registered as "eh" ... so I get why others aren't feeling the love.

It wasn't until a month or so later that I walked through a Nordstrom and someone had recently sprayed Gabrielle that the love hit me.

Gabrielle would work with shorts and tank top just as well as a dress and heels. I wear it to bed, it's just so pretty. I bet it's gorgeous in the summertime.

I don't buy the "rebel" promo material, so I ignore it. The tv and print advertisement does not match my experience of wearing the scent. I mean, it's white flowers. Nobody's rebelling here.
A commercial more in line with Charlize Theron and J'Adore, or Natalie Portman in Miss Dior would match better.

The bottle is cool looking in ads, but not as impressive in person.

Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Allure Velvet #62 Libre

on 12/24/2017 10:20:00 AM

The vertical lines on my lips, not above my lips, are becoming a bit more pronounced and cream or matte formula lipsticks can make the appearance of these lines more pronounced. Unfortunately, I like matte formulas. Of the offerings of matte formulas I've tried, this gives the lips the most youthful appearance. The formula is not drying. The shade is perfect for my coloring: light neutral to golden with green eyes and copperish hair color. Temptalia calls it mauve. I see very little pink in it, but the color can look slightly pinker with a pinker toned lipliner. Depending on whether I want the color to look pinker or a bit more warm neutral, I use either Chanel lipliner in #5 Nude or YSL #13 Nude Beige. This is a classy subtle shade that doesn't scream for attention and won't make you look like you "tried too hard".
