Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Coco Shine - Boy

on 2/21/2018 6:00:00 PM


A tale of woe. I heard so much about this “golden pinky nude with champagne sparkle” and I really wanted It to work in a bad way. Sadly the experience for me it was “all sizzle, no steak”. No colour payoff whatsoever when I looked in the mirror and I applied it rather thick. However, the trip was not a waste as I discovered and purchased Bonheur.

Bronzers -Chanel -Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base

on 2/21/2018 9:07:00 AM


This is by far my favourite Chanel beauty product. I decided to invest in a cream contour/ bronzing product.
This tub has lasted me so long and always applys so smoothly. It is easy and natural to blend into a variety of foundations.

I found that it works best with the prolongwear foundation. I would really highly recommend & look forward to purchasing again in the future.

Old Chanel rocks! Always. Far more than most recent creations like Gabrielle trying to talk to everyone and nobody simultaneously.

Fragrances -Chanel -Coco

on 2/20/2018 10:17:00 PM


This is one of the best fragrances of all time. It's so sexy, yet classy and sophisticated at the same time. It's not for the meek or faint of heart... no, no. Coco is for the empowered and confident woman.

This is a fragrance for women who seem to effortlessly succeed in all their endeavors, they aren't concerned with the trivial opinions of others, and they lift other women up because they are secure in who they are and they don't buy into petty cattiness or competition. Coco is just the ultimate "superwoman" perfume.

Coco could have, and probably should have, been the fragrance that Chanel is most famous for instead of No. 5. I know that's a bold statement, and please don't misunderstand me, I'm a Chanel fan and I own multiple bottles of No.5. But Coco is SPECIAL.

I prefer the EDP which is very strong. 1-2 sprays and you're good ALL day. Men adore it. I get tons of compliments. Its just gorgeous I feel like everyone should wear Coco at least once in their life. I wear it EVERYWHERE (this is where confidence and not giving a damn come into play lol) but Coco would work for a super romantic date night, posh formal attire party, fashion event, benefit dinner or night at the opera or theatre. It absolutely begs to be worn with a little black dress and pearls!

Fragrances -Chanel -Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense

on 2/20/2018 5:46:00 PM


This is a beautiful perfume that is quite different from my usual taste. I wore the original Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Partum Spray years ago but never replaced my bottle after moving. I decided that this new version was the perfect opportunity to bring it back to my collection. says, "A new facet of the COCO MADEMOISELLE personality, amplified by an extreme dose of Patchouli and an Amber accord that combines Tonka Bean and Vanilla from Madagascar.A powerful, deep, irresistible composition." I love All of these notes, especially Tonka Bean and Vanilla. So I decided to blind buy it as it's (at this time anyways) a exclusive that I wouldn't be able to test in store.

It arrived in a beautiful box with beautiful packaging from Chanel. Testing it reminded me of why I used to love the Original so much. But to my untrained nose, I couldn't smell much of a difference. Several others have tried it and said that they can definitely tell the Intense from the Original. But it's fine by me that it does as I don't currently own the Original. This perfume is a sillage monster and wears like iron. I can often still smell the 2 sprays I used the day before when I wake up in the morning. One of the few new perfume releases I can say that about it seems.

Do I think it's worth the price? Absolutely! It's a very well crafted Oriental that is in a beautiful classic Chanel bottle. Will I repurchase? Likely. But with it's amazing longevity, I shouldn't need to anytime soon.

Blush -Chanel -Joues Contraste Powder Blush (All Shades)

on 2/16/2018 11:27:00 PM


390 Burnt Coral I bought one in the new Spring 2018 line that was a light pretty coral (can't remember the name) but it barely showed up on my medium skin tone. This one is darker and shows up a lot more. This smells great, silky and decent wearing time. I usually work 9 hours a day and it will last about 6. I have oily/combo medium tone skin. I use Laura Geller spakle cream primer and Nar/Estee Lauder/MAC or Revlon foundation. 4 lippies just for the high price.
Also use: Laura Geller baked blush in Pink Grapefruit, Hour Glass Diffused Heat, Milani Baked blush Luminoso and Terra Sole

Foundations -Chanel -Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

on 2/13/2018 2:36:00 AM


I bought this after sales rep recommended it when I asked for a foundation which would be a combination of Dior Star and Dior Forever - medium to full coverage but luminous. This isn't bad but I'm not in love with it. Gives some luminosity, good coverage without looking like a mask or cakey, but still somehow something is missing.

Blush -Chanel -Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 99 Rose Petale


This is the color I naturally flush, which is rare for me to find. I am an NC40. This blush makes me look so youthful. Ive noticed this product works best on naked, moisturized skin. For some reason, when put over other foundations, it is hard to not only build up but also last. I have tried it over Bare Minerals original foundation, and over the MAC sff. The color pay off just isnt the same as on naked skin. Still, this is one of the most beautiful flattering shades Ive been able to find for my skin tone. It has a subtle scent of Chanel products, but not overbearing. I love the compact, and wish the brush wasnt included so that they could lower the price.

Fragrances -Chanel -Chance Eau Tendre

on 2/12/2018 9:08:00 AM


I'm not usually keen on floral fragrances, but this has a burst of fruitiness which cuts through it. Super feminine & pretty. Great for daytime/spring summer

*update* I've worn this on and off for a couple of months and I've become a little bored with it . This is a first for me, but I think the initial novelty of a new fragrance has worn off. It's not one which I will buy again

Fragrances -Chanel -No.5

on 2/11/2018 10:52:00 PM


I am a perfume collector with TONS of knowledge and experience with fragrance. Here's my take on Chanel No. 5's timeless popularity: It's safe. It's clean, inoffensive, mediocre silage... mediocre everything really, so it's never the wrong choice for any occasion. It's never going to be the best choice either in my opinion, because it's really just not that interesting. lol But it really is curiously difficult to go "wrong" with it.
You could wear it with jeans and a Tee or a $5,000 lady-boss business suit.

Then there's it's "status." Some people simply wanna be able to say they're wearing Chanel so they can pretend they're better than everyone else. lol I got news for you, Chanel Isn't even CLOSE to the best fragrance house. Between it's safeness and it's notoriety, I honestly believe that's why it maintains its popularity. Because ANY woman can wear this. Who minds smelling clean, rich and Iconic?

I own a bottle for days I need to smell safe and boring.

Foundations -Chanel -Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation


I understand the criticisms of this foundation. It's hard to apply—no question. It sets quickly. It requires work (as in practice/learning) and that's a lot for a foundation to ask. That said, I find this foundation to be really compatible with my drier, winter skin. It provides enough coverage to eliminate most of my concealing needs—mild UV damage and PIH, though I still need to apply undereye concealer and imagine active blemishes would show through—and its irritatingly quick set is actually an advantage when it comes to layering smoothly and quickly. It's not too matte (though I still say descriptions like "radiant matte" are gibberish) and it manages to stay in place all day without settling into nasolabial lines (hallelujah). Without powder! On the downside, it isn't weightless, but many weightless formulas are too dry (and look dry) on my face. Sometimes a little weight is comforting to dry skin, like a good night cream . . . as long as it doesn't wipe off on clothing (and it doesn't). And once you get the hang of application—prep well (face oil helps for dry skin!) and work in small areas (fingers are good because body heat!)—it's really not such a pain.

Skincare - Body -Chanel -No 5 After Bath Powder

on 2/9/2018 6:21:00 PM


Just got this home after reading so many positive reviews, and wow is this ever soft and lovely.
Perfect for those with spray perfume sensitivities who still prefer to smell nice.
As one reviewer commented, it's number 5 without the aldehydes.

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


Love this product
This is one product that I don't think I can ever be without. It creates the most beautiful, subtle, bronzed, glowing look that I can wear every day - no matter how tan or pale I may be. And a HUGE plus for me is that even though I have oily skin and this is a cream product, it doesn't make me more oily and it does not slide around once I've applied it.

Fragrances -Chanel -Coco Mademoiselle

on 2/6/2018 8:09:00 PM


Ahhh, Coco Mad, the citrusy fruitchouli from 2001 that left a thousand copycats in its wake. It’s seamlessly, immaculately appealing. It just smells great, from first spray through last whiff. It won’t offend anyone and will, in fact, delight many.
Yes, I like it and wear it on occasion. No, I don’t love it. It may be a Chanel, but it’s no masterpiece.

In the end, while CM is very well-done for what it is—it bores me. It’s pink and safe and predictable. When compared to some complex classics I own, CM seems almost like a really nice teen shampoo or deodorant by comparison. It has no heft, no gravitas. I’ll stick with the scents many call “old lady,” like Oscar de la Renta and Cinnabar. Those at least make a statement; CM is just amiable but vapid background noise.
