I tried this at a department store and didn´t surprise me. But after 15 minutes when I was shopping at another store, I smelled my wrist again... I fell inlove with it and ran to get it. I had been wearing Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf, and now these two are my 2 favorites. It's lovely. Sweet and feminine, but strong with a personality.
Moisturizers -Chanel - Hydramax + Active Moisture Gel Cream [DISCONTINUED]

I love this moisturizer, I got it as a recommendation from a blogger who happens to be a model and has combo skin like mine. After trying Vichy, La Roche Posay, Clinique... this is just my HG moisturizer, The only thing is the price, it's very expensive. But the good thing is that you need very little product to cover your entire face; the texture is very light and smells amazing.
I was so scared of getting this because, I mean, It's an oil, and I have combination-oily skin and live in a city where the heat is really high. But I read so many good reviews about it that I decided to get it. Oh my god, I'm inlove with it. I use it every other day, alternating it with Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder, and my skin is visibly a lot less oily than is used to, and it moisturizes so beautifuly. I would definitely recommend this and repurchase a million times.
Liquid -Chanel - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Luminous Matte Fluid Makeup SPF 15

I really wanted to love this product. I had been using Vitalumiére Aqua (which I adore) for 2 months, but I was looking for something more mattifying for the fall winter seasons, so I tried it in the store and really liked it, and bought it. Big mistake. After 1 hour the color had oxydied and the product sinked in my pores, it looked horrible and cakey and dried my oily skin; it looked like my skin was falling off. And it's also really difficult to blend. I'm sorry Chanel, but I won't repurchase this. The way I'm dealing with it right now is mixing it with the Vitalumiére Aqua and that way I get a pretty good coverage, semimatte finish and it lasts all day.
