Foundations -Chanel - Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation

I have been usinf this foundation for 4 years now. It has quite a light coverage, I have to say. I use it along with the Le Teint powder.

I tent to stay away from full coverage foundations as I feel like they make my skin loom worse. This one gives me a natural, flawless finish and my skin looks like silk in pictures.

I am under the suspicion that it clogs my pores a little. But if it does, then it is very little.

I used to use a brush to apply this foundation and it worked fine. Nowadays I use a beauty blender. Never had a problem spreading it, but then again my skin is oily so maybe that is why.

I try other foundations but I do feel lile this js my match!


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

I've been using this for about 3 years, then changed it when I broke out because of the pill, so I was hoping to find something similar but with medium to full coverage. After a year of trying everything else I could find in my shade (including Sisley) I'm back to my old friend. Thankfully my skin cleared out in the meantime and, while I still get the occasional red spots etc, this foundation is still the best for me (I use concealer to cover any blemishes). I love the natural finish, the shade matches me perfectly, it doesn't dry on me and it stays put all day (I scrub and use hydrating masks once a week, I have combination skin; don't use primer, but I do moisturizer before foundation and use translucent powder after, to set it). I found it looks best on me if I apply it with a beauty blender.

Brows -Chanel - Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil

Bought this several years ago along with some other items for my wedding makeup. There was a Chanel artist event at Nordstrom, and one of the gentleman gave me the best, most beautiful brows I have ever sported using this pencil and what felt like a thousand of the lightest application strokes using this.

Of course I bought the pencil after that! I haven't been able to recreate his magic entirely, but I come as close as I can.

I am fair skinned and use the blonde color. Works well whether I am (fake) tan or not.

Love love love the spoolie, love that it has its own cap.

Will I repurchase when I use this one up? Yes. It's not cheap (duh, right?!) So I may have to budget, but that is far enough in the future that I will cross that bridge when I come to it.


Concealers -Chanel - Eclat Lumiere Highlighting Face Pen

on 8/10/2017 2:36:00 PM

No, and no.
The shade the SA gave me, 20 Beige clair. Initially, it did seem a little dark on my NC15 skin. After wearing it a couple of times and realizing the color was way off, I made multiple swatches on my arm, only to reveal that it oxidizes to about one shade darker (!), turning quite peachy orange.
I have had YSL TE multiple times, and I would say that the TE is more creamy (which is not really a very creamy concealer) and much more highlighting. Well, the shade in Eclat Lumiere was obviously too dark, so hard to tell really.
To compare with TE again, you get less product for your money. TE also has a much better colour selection and stays on way longer. TE is by no means my favorite highlighting concealer (technically a highlighter, I know), but it did last on me maybe 7-9 hours, while the EL seemed to have started to disappear by around 3 hours..! Which is quite unusual. Coverage was fine though.
If you don't have very dark undereye circles and want something concealing and highlighting in one, perhaps try out Dior's Skinflash (supposedly has more coverage than TE and is more luminous than EL). Actually, even drugstore concealers like Maybelline Lumi Touch outperformed this one. So do your research and trying before possibly wasting your money.


Eye Makeup Remover -Chanel - Gentle BiPhase Eye Makeup Remover

Really wanted to like this but this was a total failure as far as I'm concerned.
It really irritated my eyes and rosacea and also barely removed the makeup.


Moisturizers -Chanel - La Solution 10 de Chanel

I rarely write reviews but I'm in love with this product.
My skin recently flared up with random psoriasis patches on my neck due to stress and I was a bit sceptical before trying the product thinking it was only a normal moisturiser with Chanel packaging but the sales girl was so lovely during the consultation and let me try it out.
Ohh wow, my skin had hurt a bit (tmi) due to dryness and red patches but it was almost an instant relief as soon as I applied it in those areas. Since, I've been in love and use it twice a day morning and night for almost three weeks. My redness has calmed down a lot and I'm cringing at the thought of it running out due to the price tag.

Worth it if you can get a sample to try out before purchasing though, which is what I love about Chanel products!

Foundations -Chanel - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

foto

I think the price of this foundation is a little eye watering however I really like it.
Pros
Can apply with fingers
Feels light on skin
Lasts all day
Smells beautiful
Skin like finish
Gives a beautiful glow

Cons
Price
Jump between shades
Sheer coverage

I use the shade No 12 Rosé and it's a little light for me however the undertone is a better fit than the 20 and it warms up nicely with bronzer. It makes my skin look healthy and glowing a little while after application. It doesn't draw attention to my pores or fine lines. However it doesn't entirely mask the redness around my nose and gives minimal coverage to spots. It is surprisingly buildable without looking cakey and it doesn't dry too quickly like other foundations.

All in all its the best foundation I've tried to date out of MAC, Kat Von D, Tarte etc and I'd recommend it but it probably won't be for everyone, like those that want full coverage or a matte finish.


Highlighters -Chanel - Shimmer Powder- Pink Sparkle- Holiday 2005

I absolutely love this pink shimmer powder. It is quite heavily pigmented with a beautiful pink and silver sheen. I use it on my eyes, cheekbones and other secret places ;) I adore the fact that it has a rose scent. My only wish is that I had bought 2 instead of 1! I love this!


Fragrances -Chanel - Chance

I am a huge fan of Chanel fragrances that work so well with my body chemistry. I could not live without my old times favourite Allure closely followed by Coco Noir, Coco Mademoiselle and No.5. I was quite keen to try this latest addition to the classy and sophisticated Chanel fragrance collection and I actually purchased it slightly on a whim. What can I say? This is very generic, so similar to many others of this type, full of peppery and fruit notes, way too airy fragrance, that I can only presume is supposed to cater for a much younger clientele. Not my thing at all and in all truth and honesty I would never purchase this if it wasn't Chanel which in itself is not a reason good enough to use it. I could not even finish my bottle. Gave it to my mum who is not very loyal to any fragrance in particular and this is definitely more within her genre than mine. Overall not a very bad fragrance but definitely nothing special!
UPDATE: I actually like this fragrance. Still think it's not unique enough but it just smells of happiness if it makes sense. Not for me personally but I like to smell it on others.

Lip Gloss -Chanel - Rouge Coco Gloss [moisturizing Glossimer] 752 Bitter Orange [2017]

on 8/1/2017 6:16:00 PM

I love this product ! One of my favourite glosses ever ! I have one in the shade Noce Moscata and its stunning ! And it's really moisturising, I put it on every time my lips are dry and chapped and it's like magic ! Plus it's not really sticky but I don't mind !


Lipstick -Chanel - Rouge Coco in Gabrielle 19

foto

Gabrielle is a lovely classic warm red. There's a little bit of sheen and shimmer in it, but it isn't too over-the-top. It looks very put-together on the lips, and in spite of the somewhat shiny finish, it wears really well. It has a flowery scent as one would expect from Chanel lipsticks, but it isn't very strong to me. The packaging is very luxurious and classy-looking, and it has a nice weight to it. I own a few Rouge Coco lipsticks and they are all great, but Gabrielle is the star of the show for sure. I am pale neutral-leaning-warm, and I highly recommend this red to those with a similar skin tone.


Bronzers -Chanel - Soleil Tan de Chanel - Bronzing Makeup Base

This is the best bronzer I have ever tried. It gives you the most natural bronze-y look. Too bad that it only comes in one shade.

I have this in two shades, 04 and 05. I use the darkest shade for cream bronzing. What I like about the foundation is that gives you a inner glow and looks songood for the summer. The cons though.. if you need a foundation that covers more, go for one of chanel's satin foundation.


Brows -Chanel - Sculpting Brow Pencil

Didn't anyone try Brun Naturel 30?? I tried to buy 40 Brun Cendre but the SA at Dillard's insisted they don't make it anymore along w CC.in 20 Beige she vehemently denied its availability but I saw it on chanel.com?!!!!). Thanks chanel for the spiffy sharpener urs are the best & I keep losing mine. 30 is a good color buy I think 40 would've been a better match I blind bought it but it's a pale brown w Red not crazy about the reddiishness I could do without this would be great for ideal for strawberry blondes or redheads I need a darker more blonde yet darker shade like a taupe I'm horrible at describing this but I'm going to try to find blonde cendre on eBay for not too Much moolah. I am used to the chanel brow powder cake palettes but I got this for a song. A good redhead color (30 ) great brow pencil I'm not faulting it because I dicht get my color the formula is very long wearing & creamy. It's an awesome pencil I can still make do/work even tho a bit reddish :-)


Foundations -Chanel - sublimage le teint foundation

on 7/27/2017 4:58:00 AM

foto

This is my first foundation and usually, I don't put on foundation because I can't find a suitable that fits my skin. I had a very sensitive skin (prone to skin reactions immediately if wrong prdts applied or pop pimples afterwards). However, sublimage le teint foundation did not give any issue and it lasts more than 8hrs. It gives a dewy finish which looks flawless. I feel very moisturized and face look lifted after the whole application. I am a combination skin which sublimage did not gives any extra shine and yet looks dewy the whole time. Coverage relatively light and buildable even I apply concealer on my eye area after the foundation which I find it not smudgy and easy to blend through. It is lightly scented smells like a powdery flora scent.
Word of advice while scooping out the sublimage not too heavy handed because when you are using the given brush it does not require alot to apply the whole face. It is not hygiene to put back the balance foundation as well. There is a small manual given in in the box that teaches how to apply using the brush.
Packaging wise I find difficult to carry around because it is in a tub glass form. It comes with a brush and it helps alot while applying as it gives an airbrush feel. Prices are steep for a foundation which is SGD207 comes in 6 shades. I am using shade 20. It comes with a spoon like to scoop out the foundation which I feel it is not very hygiene. Hope Chanel will come out with an improved packaging. I will consider for second purchase.
