Great formula but I wish it lasted longer. Cambon is the perfect bright red-coral lipstick. Think bright! It was too bright and cool shaded for my NC25 skin but it would look wonderful on somebody with fair skin, dark hair, that loves cool colors and that wants to make a statement.
The product formula is great. Moisturizing and amazing shine. The color was OK but it wasn't a good color for me: too frosty, too much magenta, too much sparkle and made me look cheap. The last thing you want from a Chanel lipstick.
Moisturizers -Chanel - Hydramax + Active Moisture Gel Cream [DISCONTINUED]

Pros: - The scent is very fresh and cucumber like. Loved that. - The formula was easy to apply and glided on smoothly. - Left my skin feeling soft and matte with a perfect protective layer for makeup. - I have sensitive skin with freckles. It did not cause a bad reaction, sting, burn, or break me out. Cons: - Doesn't moisturize enough. - Skin feels tight immediately and very dry. Also looks dry in the cheek and forehead area within hours. - Price is very high for most people which doesn't bother me except for the fact that it did nothing for my skin. Will not be repurchasing.
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Nivea Soft Moisturizing Creme

Works amazingly well. I love all Nivea products so I will definitely repurchase this staple. For the daytime, I usually use Chanel Hydramax + Active Gel but it was drying me out. Nivea was the perfect fix and restored moisture balance in my skin.
The first time I used this product, it broke me out. It was the middle of summer and I think that the climate and humidity didn't work well with this products. I retried it in the middle of Spring and it worked perfectly. No breakouts and it leaves my skin smooth, matte and perfect. Love it and will continue to use it.
Identical to NYX Natural. It's a natural pink-nude shade for people that favor warmer nudes. But I can't stand the fragrance of this gloss and it's sticky and overpriced. I'm sticking with NYX.

Hello lover! Where have you been all my life? I absolutely love this scrub. My skin has never looked better. I use this every two days on DRY skin after cleansing. It gets every single flake and has made my skin look radiant, like I just left a spa. I barely feel the heat and the granules might feel a bit rought at first, so try it on wet skin first and then start using it on dry skin once you feel you need to. Also, I broke out the first time I used it (purged) but it was worth it. I stuck with this product and my skin looks absolutely amazing after three weeks. Get it now! Worth every penny.
Lipstick -Korres - Mango Butter Lipstick SPF10 - 45 Coral

Love this coral lipstick. Super moisturizing, buildable color and it is the perfect Saturday afternoon light coral that gives my lips a slight pop without being bold. Love this lipstick! Great product from Greece and natural like all Korres products. Fave for sure! Edited from 5 lippies to 3. After using this lipstick for 3 days and applying it every 2-3 hours, I noticed that my lips were starting to get little white heads. Too greasy for me. Back to Chanel!
Nivea is the best moisturizer out there. I have sensitive skin and Nivea has never broken me out. My skin has never looked better. Remember to WASH YOUR FACE first, pat dry and then apply. Never put it on a dry face that hasn't been washed. That goes for all mositurizers.
Dark brown + red + warm shimmer + purple undertones. Nothing special. It looks like I grabbed leftover nailpolishes and mixed them to create this one. It is not a "real" color. I prefer classic french manicures and red nails, so this one really does nothing for me.
OK, sheer whitish ivory. Not too white so it's good for french manicures but it's too sheer so all of your defect show. Make sure your nail tips are in pristine condition. Streaky so your application must be perfect.
Shimmery light whitish pink. No big deal. Looks good on toes but it too white for finger nails. Great color for a quick toe polish on those rushed days. Will I buy again? Probably not.
Perfect orange for Fall. The color of orange leaves and pumpkin pie puree. It's very tasteful and the color goes on like a dream - creamy and buildable without being too sheer. Two coats was perfect. Great color. Took one lippie off because it's not my Holy Grail nail polish and works well for Autumn only.
Looking for a great classy purple with warm shimmer? This is it. Looks great and not trendy, too young, or passe. Love it! I always get so many compliments when I wear this color. Third to my french manicure and red nails, it's my fave. Took one lippie off because it's not my Holy Grail nail polish.
Trendy shimmery brown. Like milk chocolate but with a deep shimmer. A perfect brown shimmery nailpolish. Not my first choice for a brown but is very cute.
