In general this gives a beautiful highlight to cheekbones etc. but I have to say that for this price it is nothing spectacular. The colour is sort of a pinkish golden peach, but not in the cold direction at all, but more like a warmish beige peachy gold. For me this does not accentuate pores at all which is good. I would give this product a 4/5 when not taking into account the packaging and the price. The packaging is actually really flimsy, and feels like a cheap plasticky children's toy rather than luxury makeup. The CC pressed on to it with the flowers and stuff is very pretty though, but does not rescue the fact that the packaging in itself is very cheap. All in all Chanel makeup is not up to par in it's price league, Dior for example makes better highlighters, better eyeshadows, and much more luxurious packaging. Do get this if you want an ok performing highlighter, but don't get this if you want to feel pampered with luxurious makeup, and please do not get this if you want value for your money because this is not on par with its price.
This base coat destroyed my nails, totally. When I put this on as a base coat, my nail polish just crackles away, and later on I learned that protein in nail polish works by dehydrating the nail, thus making it stronger. For some people it will make the nails too dehydrated, and make the polish last less. This also stained my nails, after a months use I had yellow nails, and I never have stained nails. I am back to using a regular clear polish from Sante as a base coat, and my nails are better now, and my manicure lasts much longer than with this. Formadelhyde in nail strengtheners works the same way as protein, by dehydrating the nail.
I know that this is so, so popular, but I don't really like it, there's something very tacky about it. Every time I try to have it on my nails, I change polish during the evening. It works ok with my skin tone (fair, golden undertones), so that's not the problem, it's just so tacky that I end up hating it. China Glaze in general is a master at producing garish colours and this is no exception to that. The formula is your typical CG, it's not the best, but not the worst either, and it takes a long, long time to dry even with a fast dry top coat. I do have to say though that every time I use this I can see that people are taking long looks at my nails, so it's definitely an eye catcher with almost magical glitter. Maybe I am too much of a minimalist to like this, I like to dress in clear cut clothes, which are mainly white, black, and grey (right now my fav polish is essies bordeaux), don't like jewelry all that much etc. I think that for example someone with a fun maybe a bit gothic style would absolutely love this polish, and look good with it.
I was totally prepared to love this, but on me it looks like ass, so, so bad, I have very fair warm toned skin, and this just does not work on me at all. Also, this has to be the worst OPI I own in terms of quality, it turns out streaky and strange on the nails. I was very surprised about this since I love OPI polish in general because of how easy it is to paint on. All in all, try to test this out on your skin tone before buying, and be prepared that it isn't as easy to work with as other OPI polishes.
I have been a big lily lolo fan for years, until recently. I made an order some months ago, and instantly found that the formula has changed; I find it extremely rude that they didn't inform the customers about the change in formula, and also the change in shades. The old formula was very good, staying put easily for 10 hours at least, and the shades did not oxidize on the skin. The new formula literally melts off your skin in an hour, and the shades are much darker. So, if you are ordering from them, order a sample first, to make sure you want to order a full size in the new shades, and in the new consistency.
My all time favorite scent, together with Kenzo's Jungle. Both are a little bit weird, strong scents, Blonde is more feminine than Jungle though. On me this smells mostly of tuberose, but you can definitely sense the animal scents of musk and civet underneath. All in all this a bold, feminine scent, with a weird twist. I suspect it takes a certain kind of personality to like something like this, I don't think that anyone who loves light florals etc. would love this.
