Fragrances -Chanel -Gabrielle

Initially when I heard Chanel was finally releasing a new pillar fragrance, I was excited. At first I found it to be fairly linear and pretty. Now that I have had time to spend with the fragrance, I really just find it to be kind of dull and boring. I'm not sure what I was hoping for, but this is a fairly basic floral scent. If you like floral scents, you may love this. For me, it doesn't seem very exciting and isn't long lasting. I guess we will wait for the inevitable flankers and see if that reveals anything more interesting than this.

Disappointed! This new scent doesn’t last long and I expect that quality from Chanel. This fragrance couldn’t passed the “test”; someone needs to be fired cause their nose not working right. As a loyal customer I am peeved!! Save your money my fellow “Beauty Beads”. Chanel did us so wrong.


BB Cream -Chanel -CC cream

I tried this because I love the ease of BB and CC creams--they're one step. I have two other Chanel foundations(new to my collection that I love) so I thought this would be a homerun. I bought no 20 since I am that color in the foundations but it is a little light. It does oxidize some with wear. It covers way more that the Chanel foundations, both offer sheer to medium coverage, and this gives light to medium coverage because it has zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and octinoxinate as the sunscreen. It adds a luminous look. All good but here's the weird thing. After about 3 hours I checked my face to see how it was wearing and I had white streaks on my face: on my chin, forehead, down my cheeks. I had not worked out or walked in the rain. I had been watching TV. Nothing strenuous. I had used my fingers to apply. I don't know if this was an aberration but I will try again before I give up on it.

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

on 10/26/2017 5:40:00 AM

Hands down the worst powder foundation I've ever used. Worse than the typical drugstore brands. the foundation itself is compressed so densely into the pan that it is impossible to pick anything up with a brush, with a sponge you can get a tiny bit of product each time, but the surface gets caked and gross if you use a sponge on it. So basically the whole thing is useless after three uses. And as for the performance on the skin, nothing. It doesn't do anything to your skin. No coverage, no mattening, no highlighting. Such a waste of money and another disappointing foundation product from Chanel.

Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Allure Velvet #34 - La Raffinee

on 10/24/2017 12:15:00 PM

La Raffinée (translation from French: the refined one) is a beautiful medium-deep muted berry with rose and mauve undertones. It is matte but is doesn`t dry out my lips the way that some other matte lipsticks tend to do (before I apply any lipstick, matte or not, I always apply lip balm generously and then blot away the excess). It`s expensive but the packing is luxurious - but those are both things you`d expect from Chanel, right?


Treatments (Face) -Chanel -Sublimage Masque

Ugh, the fragrance! It is obnoxious! I had it on for 30 minutes or so and finally had to cleanse it off it was so overpowering! Eek. No way. $200? No. It even stung my eyes and I didn't get it in my eyes, but just being close by it was just too much I guess. I'm not even typically really sensitive.

Foundations -Chanel -sublimage le teint foundation

I was on the lookout for a light foundation that would not make my 36 year old skin look 36. This has the most beautiful finish that is glowy but not shiny. My combo skin will get shiny though if I use primer and moisturizer with it. The perfect skin effect will only last a couple hours that way. When I just put a little vitamin c Serum on before the foundation I have no issues with it lasting. The shades run light. I am like an NW 25 and I wear the second to darkest shade 40.

Fragrances -Chanel -Coco Mademoiselle

I do love this fragrance... like everyone else, right? lol It's one of the better mainstream designer fragrances available. It's so likeable and universally pleasing its almost magical. I mean, everyone and their mother loves this stuff!

A simple, elegant citrus, patchouli, floral with a nice soft powder lingering softly beneath it all to smooth out any sharp edges. Long lasting. The only reason I didn't give it a full 5 stars is because I smell it on every other person that walks by me on the street. So unfortunately I can't call it a favorite. However, I do wear and enjoy it on occasion!

Boooooorrrring. Horrible disappointment. Chanel should be absolutely ashamed. When customers go to Chanel, we are expecting the unsurpassed quality, classy, elite, supremely blended fragrance that justifies paying the big bucks. This is NOT that... it's not... Chanel. It's a mundane, generic, fragrance lacking personality and completely devoid of any silage or longevity whatsoever.

Get it together, Chanel.

Mascara -Chanel -Le Volume De Chanel

I agree with all users above who gave this product low rating. It also gave me some sort of allergy that made my eyes feel droopy and heavy. I did not
Know what has caused it until I switched to other non-Chanel mascara. The reaction is no longer there. Who would think? I am a big fan of Chanel products but no more Chanel mascara for me.


Treatments (Face) -Chanel -Blue Serum

Saw this at Dillard's and the employee suggested I use it as a primer before applying makeup. I left with a sample considering the price. But both days I used the Blue Serum, my skin was so dewy with glow, people were complementing my complexion! Will definitely be purchasing because this serum lives up to its hype! 👌🏽

Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Coco Shine - Boy

on 10/22/2017 3:40:00 PM

I'm in love with this lipstick! I'm a big fan of the Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks because they are lightweight, very moisturizing and come in a wide range of very flattering colors. No, they don't last as long as many other lipsticks, but then I don't expect them to: longer lasting lipsticks tend to be drying (especially if they're highly pigmented, such as reds) and I don't like the stain they leave behind. Boy is a light, warm nude with hints of pink, like my natural lip color but better. Much, much better. It's very shiny and glossy, which I love. Because it looks so natural, I'll wear it either on days when I don't want to look as though I'm wearing makeup (although of course I am) or as a counterpoint to smoky eyes.

Sad to see Chanel entering the vulgarity of mass intended boredom! Just a paradoxal joke it is named Gabrielle while she was the force behind picking master pieces like Chanel 5, Cuir de Russie, Bois des Iles... some will say this is "contemporary". Yet all, including those, know this is simply comercial and utterly banal!

Never understood why Chanel has at least 4 different versions of this serum sold in different parts of the world. This is by far the best but harder and harder to find, probably discontinued but most SAs don't even know... fabulous product with great results.


Fragrances -Chanel -Allure Sensuelle

WOW...

Well my first question after falling under the spell of this bewitching fragrance is why is it not as popular as Coco Mademoiselle or others in the Chanel fragrance collection? This is utterly gorgeous and beguiling. Just came back from Paris and smelled this at the parfumerie inside the Louvre Museum and bought it within ten minutes of spraying it on my wrist even though I didn't necessarily have the budget for it. My god this delivers that same intoxicating quality that the infamous Coco EDP does but in a less loud kind of way and more suitable for ages under 50 (no shade whatsoever to Coco but I can't wear that fragrance because it wears me). Of course the lovely ladies at the Chanel counter kept showcasing the new Gabrielle EDP in my face but I was underwhelmed by that one. I also own Coco Noir and I find this one to be sexier in my opinion i.e spicier and slightly heady. This lingers on my skin for hours and hours and becomes decidedly more creamy and seductive as the day goes on.
You can easily overdo this one because even one spritz is quite powerful. I think this one is for those bold women that enjoy wearing a femme fatale type of fragrance. I actually secretly wish I could wear Coco but this is seriously the next best thing.
Expensive? Yes. But hey its Chanel.

5/5
