Powder -Chanel - LE TEINT ULTRA TENUE (ultrawear flawless compact foundation) Powder Foundation

on 5/27/2017 2:20:00 PM

I have oily/combination skin and of all the types (liquid, cushion, powder) I like this formula the best. The powder is finely milled, soft and blends very easily. Does not leave patches and the powder just feels luxurious on my face. The powder helps with shine, but because I live in a humid country so I do need to fix my face at about 4 hours (not sure if it's the humidity or the make up's fault). The packaging is so beautiful and the sponge is awesome. The Chanel counter lady told me to come back and get my dirty sponge exchanged as needed, instead of washing it. I really love that option!



Treatments (Face) -Chanel - Sublimage Masque

I like to give products a very thorough testing early on to really understand how my skin reacts to it.

I got my hands on a sample of this mask on recommendation from a friend.

It is very soft and very nourishing. I have used it for 2 days in a row as an overnight treatment (as recommended by some on makeupalley) on half my face only. I then gave my skin a break for a day. And I then attempted to do it again a third time but my face felt hot and irritated from it, so I rinsed it off early, ie just used it as a mask. A day later I have tried it again on half my face and again my face has got very hot and I've rinsed it off after about an hour. A Sales Assistance once told me that as soon as skin feels hot or irritated it could mean the product will make it breakout.

It is definitely very softening and a pleasure to use, but I'm not clear yet on whether I am overusing it or whether over the longer term my skin would have an allergic reaction to it. I will continue with it in a few days and aim to update the review.


Fragrances -Chanel - Chanel No 5 - Velvet Body Cream

If you love classic Chanel N5 in large doses you're going to love this.
All your body will smell like your favorite perfume and it's gonna be moisturized at the same time.
I love perfumery body creams and I 'm okay to wear classic Chanel N5 every now and then, but I find this cream too overwhelming. I felt like I took a bath in perfume, way too much!


Brows -Chanel - Crayon Sourcils Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil

This is another staple of mine, been using for absolutely years and years. Great formulation and a little goes a long way. Long wearing. Easy to sharpen the pencil and it comes with it's own sharpener as well inside the box. The brush at one end is stiff and perfect for brushing up brows and shaping. I've never felt the need to look at anything else to own as you get everything you want in one buy, though I have used other products e.g. Suqqu has great brow products, but they are hard to come by. Chanel is easier found and a winner. The lightest colour they offer is Blond Clair and it's brilliant for blondes, being a great taupe ash blonde colour which just matches natural colour so well. The best brows in my opinion are ones that are naturally highlighted and thickened, with colour that is added in with feathery strokes, for a look that is barely detectable but done.The worst are brows obviously "painted" on. This just looks awful but it's surprisingly common. Technique aside, you'll get a fantastic natural look with this pencil and it'll last for some time.


Eye Shadow -Chanel - Illusion d'Ombre

Right, so these have been on the market for some time now, although I have heard whispers they might be discontinuing, I hope that is wrong! A great range of colours and I almost always go in for the limited edition colours that come out. I love colours Apparition, an amazing deep shimmery blue and Mirifique a fantastic black, such a staple. Emerveille is a gorgeous taupe pink fabulous for day. Easy to use and great colour pay off. They're somewhere in between a cream and gel in consistency and feel spongy almost, to the touch, then creamy. Really genius and divine. They work just as well with fingers as they do with a brush. The little brush they come with can feel a bit stiff and hard on the eyelid when used flat, but it produces a great line when used on the angle side. Very good staying power, I've never had an issue here and so easy to build up. Great used over matte shadow for highlight, shimmer and effect. The lighter silvery options (colour Mysterio) work super well as a highlighter around the eye area and cheek bones for night time glamour. I have had some get slightly dry over time, just on the top, so you do need to keep the pot tightly closed between use. A little bit fiddly as well handling the pots, going between them as you're working away. If they packaged these differently, they'd get a 5+ probably from me, however they'd still need to find a way to keep the product tightly sealed.
