I bought this mask in a travel set. I only used it once and I ended up throwing it away right after. First, it burns! I felt my face on fire like the previous reviewer mentioned. I have other really good masks that don't make my face feel like that. Second, I tried washing it off and it wouldn't come off, even using warm water. I had to use a toner to remove it. It seemed to perform well but it feels terrible on and it doesn't wash off. My kiehls clay mask and the Freeman mask (that is super cheap) work and feel much better.
This lipstick looks terrible on me. It accentuates the lines in my lips. It looks chalky and just overall on flattering. :(

Like all Chantecaille products this is on the expensive side but it's amazing. I use it everyday as a light moisturizer. It makes my skin look wonderful. It's soft and my pores seem smaller. The overall texture of my skin has improved greatly since I started using this product.

My mom bought this for herself but she had an allergic reaction to it so she gave it to me. I really enjoy it. I use this as a night cream. It's great! Expensive but I think it's worth it. It doesn't feel too heavy, not heavily scented which I like, nor does it break out. I don't know about the firming claims since I'm still too young to really need it.
Yes, it is very expensive for a tinted moisturizer but it's amazing. It covers extremely well and leaves your face looking natural. I have normal to oily skin and I love how it looks on me. I wear the shade nude and it's a perfect match. I've tried finding a cheaper dupe but nothing comes close. Also you don't need a lot.
I brought this palette thinking it would be a great everyday palette. Three of the colors are nice but nothing that can't be duped with cheaper eyeshadows. The silvery taupe color is terrible. There is no color payoff at all. Really for the price of this quad I expected much more. I'll think twice before buying another Chanel quad.

I had heard many people rave about this. I saw it in Sephora in a tube instead of the tin so I thought I would try it. I hated the scent. It smells like baby powder which isn't bad I just don't want it on my lips. Plus it feels like I put perfume on lips. I'm returning asap.
I have 3 of NYX round lipsticks. I love the formula and texture. They feel like a high end lipstick without the price tag. This color is a beautiful old hollywood red. It has great pigmentation. It stays on for awhile and as the perfect finish, It isn't matte but it isn't shiny either. I had wanted to get Chanel Pirate lipstick but when I swatched the two side by side I see any difference.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - The Porefessional

This primer didn't diminish the look of my pores. It made my skin look super dry. And worst of all it broke me out around my nose. So I will be returning this product. I wouldn't recommend this primer
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Gloss Stick - Wild Plum
bitterrose1025 9/9/2012 5:38:00 PM
I love the color of these lipstick. Feels good on the lips and stays on for a surprising long time for a glossy lipstick. However, it smells terrible. It suppose to smell like mangos which it kinda does but there is over powering rotten plastic smell on top of the mango scent. It is very off putting. You can still smell it when you first put in on your lips but it does go away. It is such a shame too because the formula is very nice and the color is beautiful but I wouldn't repurchase it or buy any other color
Quarry is a pretty muted taupe slight plum color. It works well as a crease color for a natural day look and as a transition color for a smokey look. My only problem was the first one a purchased became rock hard and it was impossible to any color payoff from it. I tried a brush and my finger and nothing. I even tried to scrape off the top layer and still it didn't work. I bought another one and haven't had any problems with that one. I'm not sure if I just got a bad one.
Cleansers -Chantecaille - Rice and Geranium Foaming Cleanser
bitterrose1025 6/4/2012 12:35:00 AM
I love this cleanser! It is gentle on my combination to oily skin while cleaning all the extra oil and makeup off my face. It is expensive but a little goes a long way. Definitely worth the money
I brought two of these lip creams because the colors looked so beautiful and they were. However, the smell and feel on the lips were just terrible. It smells fake and plastic and it feels like vinyl on the lips. Plus they look too matte. I know that it says matte in the name but they made my lips look really dry. Not for me
Concealers -Sonia Kashuk - Hidden Agenda Concealer Kit
bitterrose1025 6/4/2012 12:27:00 AM
I heard some great things said about this concealer palette. I loved that it had a greenish beige concealer which I figured would be great for blemish or red areas. Plus it has a setting powder. I thought it would be great for travel since it was kinda of an all in one. However, I didn't like the way the concealer goes on, the finish it gave, nor the staying power. It didn't blend into my skin very well and it sat weird on the skin giving my face an odd texture look. During the day it melted off giving me an even weirder look. I really wanted to like this product. It just didn't work for me
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles

I liked this at first but then the packaging stopped twisting up. I try to depot it and the concealer didn't work as well. It would crease and get into the fine lines under my eyes. I may have gotten a defective package. I won't buy again just in case since it isn't the cheapest drugstore item.
