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


Polishes -Chanel -Le Vernis 572 Emblematique

on 10/19/2017 6:55:00 AM

Chanel Emblematique is a blue based dark red nail polish. Perfect on hands and feet. It is beautiful but looks very dupeable. Flormar 385 red velvet is the exact dupe for this beautiful color. They look exactly same both from their bottles and after applying on the nails. Sally Hanson 575 red handed looks a tone or two lighter on the bottle but after applying on nails they look very similar. If you have either of them there is no point getting both. It has a runny formula which dries very quickly and gives its beautiful color to nails with 2 coats. I love this color and its formula , it is a classic color that will never go out of style and perfect for year around.


Liquid -Chanel -Perfection Lumiere

The negative reviews on here astound me. Perfection Lumiere isn't meant to be a high coverage foundation - if anything it's very low coverage and only meant to even out skin tone - so all the comparisons to full coverage foundations like EL's double wear make zero sense. You should understand your skin type before blindly buying foundations. This is meant for combination skin, so those with dry or very oily skin aren't going to like it at all. If you have normal skin but get a bit shiny in the t-zone, then this gives you a very nice skin like finish, evens out the skin tone and basically pushes you over to perfect skin territory. It is not meant to make you look made up, or cover acne or rosacea. You need higher coverage foundations with more oil control properties for those conditions. It is pricy and the shade selection is poor but the foundation itself and the pump packaging is excellent.

Foundations -Chanel -Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

I HAVE FOUND THE ONE. I’m a makeup teacher and I spend 14+ hours a day under hot makeup lights, plus I have oily skin. My holy grain WAS Estée Lauder’s doublewear. It didn’t budge, but by the end of the day when I eventually got home looked like it had kind of ‘settled’ on my skin, as if it was dry. This foundation has genuinely stayed as immaculate as it was when I applied it first thing in the morning. Unbelievable and I’m extremely impressed.

What a bust! I was eagerly awaiting this thinking it's going to be great and it's anything but. It's not a nice scent in any way and it lasts only for about 1 hour making it seem like it's a cheap drugstore scent rather than a high end product. Not recommended.

The best CC I have ever tried. Looks like real skin, good balance between coverage and lightness. Semi matte and not too fragranced. Love it!

It changed my eye contour for the better: lines, dark circles (so much!!!) so I am using my third bottle I think using it already for two years.

Treatments (Eye) -Chanel -Le lift eye serum

I used to swear by Lauder Advance Night Repair eye products for my horrible under eye swelling and circles. Yet they were not perfectly doing the job and from time to time I would try out new products to see if I can find something better. My eye area is my weak point as otherwise I do not really show signs of aging on the face by almost 42. My eye area is awful though; dehydrated but mostly just terribly swollen with dark circles due to genetics and allergies. I am also allergic to a lot of eye products on the market, Biotherm and La Prairie among them which their other products work well for me. I once received a sample of Chanel Le Lift eye serum and instantly fell in love which only deepened with time. I decided to buy it despite the high price because I really felt it was worth the price. Now I am on my second bottle, this rarely happens to me as I always find myself out looking for something new that works even better.

The product does wonders when it comes to puffiness and circles. Nothing does the job so well. I have no idea why Chanel skin care is often underrated since most products I have tried since worked great for me. There is only one drawback, of course the price since this product is very lightweight I think that many end up needing to pair it up with the matching eye cream, I know I do. The serum by itself would be enough for many who do not have dryness related to age and genetics, if I forget to add the cream I do fine but have a bit of crepiness under the eye, albeit most other products leave me with that as well and I do always need to add a cream to a serum. But the other products even Lauder´s ANR serum does not help this much with puffiness and circles.

I stupidly thought to try the new ANR Matrix which I had to immediately return due to having to spend days on topical cortisone. Ooh. Not good. ANR eye used to have something highly allergenic in it years ago which they took out and now they put it back in. I just thought that I could actually be a bit more economical and use one product instead of two higher priced products, wrong, wrong. I went back to Chanel Le Lift Serum and cream for eyes.

I also tested their new Blue Serum for face and really liked it as well but for the face I also love Clinique and Lauder and still using my stock up but after that I think I will test out a full sized Blue Serum as well.

My favorite perfume. So beautiful, flowery, and rich. I really love this perfume. I get a lot of compliments when wearing it. It's very long lasting and wears beautifully.

Why would Chanel discontinue the 3 products system is beyond me! They worked perfectly and never had a more balanced and healthy looking skin.

Really sad one cannot buy this in stores anymore and only online. The 3 products system is one of the easiest and more effective skincare things I have every tried. No idea why Chanel gave up on such beautiful products!

I use this since the 80's when it was sold only at some Chanel boutiques. It is my favorite fragrance, all times, all seasons. (Hate that nonsense of "summer this and winter that"!) Hope that Chanel never discontinues the Parfum version as the EDP is a joke, the EDT was nicer. Nowadays we no longer know what is the brand's blame, legal impositions or whatever. Have some vintage bottles of the Parfum as a safe backup!

I have tried it before, and I was not a fan. But now I purchased it in brown and waterproof (mistake in the store, I avoid waterproof), and guess what: the results are GREAT. Nice volume and length, no flacking or smudging (waterproof) and very nice deep brown color.
