i love this colour. for people who say "it doesnt go with my eyes because it has too much warmth/too much coolness" satin taupe has a neutral undertone...try layering it with somthing you think will correct this phantom undertone. I cannot praise this shadow enough!
I hate this product! whenever i use it between final polish cote and top coat, it cause the polish to avoid certain places of my nail, because of its oily feel. hate it hate it hate it. waste of money, do not get!
i have suhc a love hate relationship with this product. I love how dark and creamy it is, it goes on like a dream, and is pitch black and not a kind of muddy grey black that some black liners go. HOWEVER. this does not stay anywhere. not on my top lid, my water line, my upper eyelid waterline...no where. smudges, runs, so awful. Ive actually decided to stop using it because it is so annoying to use :(
i just wanted to write a quick review and few tips for people who are struggling with the pigmentation of these products, in the hopes tht you wont feel like you wasted your money! :) if you are struggling to make this colour look less harsh, try using a really fluffy, not very dense brush, almost a brush that is kind of crappy at applying blush. it will pick up so little product, that you will have to slowly build the colour, and therefore can achieve a REALLY subtle glow! i love this blush, and use it on my friends with very pale skin, nc 15s, all the way up to my nw55 friends!

I love this product as a blush, back of cheek product, that will warm up my face. Not a lot of shimmer, slight golden sheen, not really visible on the skin which i like. this is a beautiful peachy colour, it smells gorgeous and has a really smooth luxurious texture that almost goes on like a creme/liquid and does not cling to dryness. i have purchased my back up just because i feel i cannot be without it!

*****update******* I infact do not like mixing this with my foundation, as i finally worked out that it was this that was causing my foundation to go goopey and apply unevenly..shame because the first 2 hours of wear it amazing... :( no liking it anymore, i have thrown it awaya nd gone for strobe cream instead by mac ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I actually really liked this product for mixing in with my chanel perfection lumiere foundation, which many people say they disliked. i personally dont like applying this over or under it. this is a beige, yellow highlighter with a pink duocrome shimmer. it looks lovely on a more yellow tone skin like mine i feel. the price for amount of product is phenominal, at just £7 for 50ml. i will be purchasing a back up of this, as i can only find it in one shop near my country house, but not my home, slightly annoying.
I bought this foundation after my counter had run out of my beloved vitalumiere aqua, so i decided to try a new chanel foundation. IM TOTALLY IN LOVE. i still love my vitalumiere aqua but when ever i go to the counter i always buy my aqua and my perfection lumiere. the coverage on this foundation is medium, but i would say it is slightly buildable. The finish is demi matte and gives the skin an unweighed down, healthy look. If you have very dry skin, you may not like this product, as i found it clung to a a bit of my skin which i had accidentally left tooth paste on (when cleaning teeth) and had subsequently dried out. if you would like to try this foundation out and you have dry skin, be sure to moisturise you skin well, before applying. i love that i can apply this foundation with my fingers or a brush (mac 187, 190, 130, chanel no. 7 brush) and really love to mix some highlighter in and apply with fingers. packaging for this product is better now that they have reinforced the lid, and looks classy and elegant. The foundation has the typical chanel foundation smell, a kind of rosy smell that i personally LOVE, but it does fade as soon as it is applied if you dont like smell.
