Fragrances -Chanel - No 5 l'eau

This is my first Chanel fragrance and it did not disappoint. Lasts the whole day even though it's not a parfum. I think that it's perfect for all seasons. It has a light sweet powdery dry down, which I think is quite fresh and young for a No. 5 variant.

Blush -Chanel - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in In Love (Euro)

I baught this to replace my beloved Chanel reflex blush (wich i have used up two times)! I tought it was time for a change and went with a more subtile blush. This did not suits me all that well at all. I love blush, its like my favorite makeup-product in my makeup stash and I want my cheek to pop, and have a flattering glow. This made my cheeks all flat.. And it was a bit sheets for my staste. For reference, Im fair with yellow undertones and blonde hair. My eyes are green. But I used up this too, baucause its so expencive, but it lasted for about 4 1/2. Next I will buy Malice blush! :)

Blush -Chanel - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 71 Malice

on 7/2/2017 5:07:00 PM

I love Malice. It's a highly pigmented pinky-coral shade. I have to apply it carefully because of its high pigmentation, but I like that quality because a little goes a long way. By contrast, I sometimes have to build up layers of other blushes to get the color deposit that I want---and risk looking overly made up.
I think it's a color that straddles the cool / warm divide. It's a neutral, that I think can work for many complexion types. I often pair it with Revlon's Crystal Cut Coral lipstick, which is a corally-pink. For make up mixers---I think this would work so well mixed with other blushes---just a swipe of this to make other blushes pop.
Would definitely repurchase despite the price.

Fragrances -Chanel - Allure for women

Absolutely beautiful! Clean, warm, powdery and strong. It's a calm strong though. I spritz behind both ears and 1 wrist...lasts all day...FACT!! I received this when it came out in the late 90s from a family I babysat for. I would wear it to cheerleading and all the girls loved it! I have several others...but always come back to this as well. Any season really. It's heavy...but that is nice when applied right! Lovely classic!

Lipstick -Chanel - Rouge Allure Velvet

I never post negative reviews, but I cannot keep my fingers from tapping tonight. I recently purchased three shades from this line, which I have always loved. The Chanel Rouge Allure line of lip colors, that is. Until now. They have "reformulated" their lipsticks (but maintained the same price point- so we pay in diminished product quality); I was so excited to get these and so disappointed when I applied them for the first time- and each time thereafter. They are very pretty shades, but the payoff is "watered down" compared to the line before they dumbed the formilation down. So, yes, we get the name, the beautiful packaging, but the actual lip color is a little more than a balm It takes several swipes to get opacity, is very comfortable but slippery, transfers, and doesn't last but a four hours at most. It seem about half of the overall performance that it used to. I was sorely disappointed but felt it would be too tacky to return for a refund. I should have. Since then, although I have resisted the Tom Ford lipsticks ($53.00 seems ungodly to pay for a lipstick to my thinking) up until now, I was tempted. Bummer, Chanel!


Liquid -Chanel - Perfection Lumiere Velvet

I love love love this foundation. my friend recommend it to me and I've been using it ever since. This is my first chanel product and it got me hooked to the brand.
I wear make up on daily bases and prefer natural looks. This foundation is lightweight -since it is water based and is what it claim to be with the velvety finish. I have combination/oily skin and this gives me a really healthy dewy look with glows without making me really oily. thou it is not high coverage- light to medium but with some concealer it's alright. Good for all ages me and my mom use it
Wish they'll change the packaging to something more fancy after all it is Chanel. but with the sqaure-ish packaging it is easy for travel light weight plastic bottle.
Highly recommend this

Primer/ Corrector -Chanel - Complete Correction Cream

on 6/26/2017 10:39:00 PM

I just bought this yesterday, so really too early to tell. That said, I wore it today and I came home after an 8+ hour day and it still looked pretty fresh. The staying power is great, the sun protection is awesome. I was looking for something lighter than foundation, but that would even out skin tone. I will update in a week or so. Hopefully, no breakouts. It is rare that a Chanel product breaks me out. I use this over the Micro Cream and Serum. I live in a very dry climate and this keeps my skin moist. So far, so good. I do like the packaging and the texture. I would be careful, it can get heavy, best to blend after you apply. I will update in a week. Update: This product did end up going back. I now use Nars tinted moisturizer and I love it. This was too heavy.

Blush -Chanel - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick

I just bought this today, with the CC cream. I already had blush on when I tried it on, but so far I love it. I am happy to hear it has staying power. I will update along with review for the CC cream in about a week. I got the Pink shade.
UPDATE: This is going back. I went to put it on this morning over my CC cream and it was nowhere near pigmented enough. I went back to the BB cream blush. Stilia may also be good, too bad Sephora here does not carry it anymore.


Fragrances -Chanel - Coco Mademoiselle

foto

This is my favorite mainstream perfume. I used to think I hated patchouli, but what a fool I was. The patch isn't super-obvious in Coco Mademoiselle, but I pick it up, and it gives the perfume extra depth that makes it interesting and keeps it from smelling like just another generic floriental perfume. The lasting power of the EdP is phenomenal on my skin, and of course the bottle is beyond beautiful. I used up an entire bottle, so I am wanting to replace it when I have the money.


Polishes -Chanel - Ballerina

on 6/24/2017 10:08:00 PM

Not really sure why everyone raves about this color. It is a goopy, streaky, milky pink. Actually, it looks more white, than pink. If you're looking for a perfect nude pink, stick with OPI or Essie. There are better colors in Chanel's line on which to splurge.

Lipstick -Chanel - Chanel rouge allure ink

Bought this in the lightest shade 'Amoueux'...Its quite a garish pink considering its supposed to be MLBB. I like the application and it doesnt settle too matte but - its overpriced and the range of colours are teeny. I am sending this back

Holy grail foundation. Looks flawless when it's on the skin and after 8 hours it still looks great! Always get compliments from people whenever I wear it. Sadly it has been discontinued..
