Fragrances -Chanel -Coco Mademoiselle

I one hundred percent agree with Olfactoria's review below me. My fiance gave me a 50ml bottle of this for my birthday in 2015. I loved it at the time, before I was a bit more versed in fragrance. Now I'm into the old classics. Coco Mademoiselle is like EDM music, and the statement ones such as Youth Dew, Shalimar, Opium, Cinnabar and Coco are like classic rock. CM smells so commercial to me. It's well constructed, and it has amazing longevity. But I only wear it occasionally. Maybe it's the generous citrus in the formula, I can't pinpoint what it is, but it's just too teeny-bopperish, and conjures up the mall in my head. My fiance also gave me the OG Coco on the birthday after, and that's what wrecked my temporary CM fling. I apologize to the CM lovers, but the OG Coco, and other vintage classics, are sooooo much better imo.


Toners -Chanel -Lotion Purete Mattifying Toner

foto

Back in my early skincare days, I had no idea what ingredients actually worked effectively. I bought this at Macy's when I was desperate for a solution to keep my oily skin at bay.

The issue with this toner is that it will dry out your skin from all the alcohol. This will initially work great because it seems at first like it's controlling the oil. However, over time you will realize this toner turns you into more of a greaseball because your skin will try to balance all the harsh ingredients by producing more oil. I kept breaking out and couldn't figure out why. Turns out my skin was overproducing oil because I had been drying it out so much with harsh alcohols.

I finally threw this in the trash. It's annoying wasting money, but your face is irreplaceable. I'd rather lose money than continue to damage my skin with the harsh ingredients in this toner.

Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Coco Stylo

So my mom bought me a Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo lipstick shade 216 Lettre back in SG. When I saw it for the first time, well packaging wise It's good. So then I tried it on my lips and I completely fell in love with the color. But the problem is, you can easily wipe off this lipstick away... If you're more into matte lipstick, well I think this product is not what you're looking for. And I'm not gonna buy this lipstick ever again because It's expensive.

I absolutely love this lip colour. I have bought many luxury lipsticks in my time, and this is by far the best. So far I only have one colour - Amoureux - but I am going to buy more today. Amoureux is my perfect MLBB colour. It looks sleek and sophisticated for work, and yet natural for weekends, just smoothed in a little more. The packaging is beautiful and easy to carry around, and I love the frosted glass effect. I especially like the fact that it is small - even though it is expensive! - as I have taken to carrying it around with me. The colour does not last as long as I would like - a couple of hours, less if drinking or eating, but it fades evenly and naturally, which has been an issue with other recent expensive purchases. I am prepared to keep buying it, because of the colour, the ease of application, the lack of stickiness and the lovely packaging. Like one of the other reviewers, I see myself ditching all my other lip products and just keeping this in my bag.

Looks awful on my skin, clings to dry patches, I tried multiple different applications and just couldn't make it work for me

I cannot wear regular CM, even though it smells wonderful on others. Yet the Intense version wears well on me. I detect the patchouli and vanilla. This imparts a warm and comforting scent and seems wearable year round.

Irresistable to me. I try new fragrances, that is to say I cheat on Coco Mademoiselle, but I always find myself back reaching for it at the store and smiling. Such a signature that people ask when they smell.


Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Coco Shine - Boy

It is a very natural nude colour that is almost invisible after application. It is so natural looking that it is like your natural lip colour just prettier. It feels very light on the lips after application and does not leave whitish-marks.
I wish it were a bit more hydrating though.

Blush -Chanel -Rouge Coco Lip Blush Hyydrating Lip and Cheek Colour

Like cross-training shoes, multi-use products are often mediocre at two things. There are exceptions; Lipstick Queen Honest Politician is gorgeous on both lips and cheeks, but I digress.

This Chanel product retails for $30. It’s packaged like a gloss in a skinny tube with a doe foot applicator. I believe it’s a limited edition release. I bought (and will return) 414 Tender Rose. The first issue is that the color is utterly coral, not Rose. I shudder to think what the coral shade looks like (perhaps it’s Rose?)

It would have been great for travel-imagine a blush in a lip gloss costume.

There is a great deal of siliconey slip here-I’m not averse to that in a cream blush-the Armani face fabric blushes are fabulous, but this seems to have a high ratio of slip to color, so the application is patchy on the cheek, and when you try to build it, the patches slide more and disappear. On the lips, it’s a matte, greasy mess that collects in lip fills and yes....more patching.

Disappointing product from Chanel. I’m curious to see what others think-maybe the other shades will be better.

Liquid -Chanel -Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15

I bought this after a Chanel artist used it on me while showing me the spring colour palette. I liked the way it felt on my skin, and it seemed to have reasonable coverage. Unfortunately, when I tried this product at home on my oily skin, my nose was shiny and the coverage faded after an hour or two. When I tried building up the coverage, I found the shade I was matched with was too dark for me.

The packaging is great - easy to fit in your makeup bag for travel and unbreakable.

If you have dry skin and want light coverage, this may work for you.

It smells like its been left in a drawer too long and has "gone off"... Very disappointing and bland.
I had a sample bottle and wouldn't buy the full bottle.

Mascara -Chanel -Le Volume De Chanel

Save your money and buy LOREAL Volume MIllion Lashes!!

I got the Chanel Le Volume as a sample and it is really nice but my current Loreal one is the perfect dupe for this...... and better!!!!!! Seriously!!

I put one on each eye and there was not much difference except the Loreal was smoother, i like to do two coats and use quite a lot, the Chanel felt heavier and was slightly clumpy.

Neither hold the curl great, but my eyes are super sensitive so i have difficulty with mascaras, so i'll go for slightly less curl for good volume and length with no clumps or flakes and no itchy, watery, puffy eyes.

Liquid -Chanel -Perfection Lumiere Velvet

This is my HOLY GRAIL foundation!!! Even though I have oily skin and rosacea this foundation takes care of it ALL!!! It goes on like velvet, very smooth application with a beauty blender or brush, and leaves a GORGEOUS finish!! And with just one application of this it covered ALL of my moderately bad rosacea!! And with a large fluffy brush press some setting powder into your skin and this will stay all day long and into the night evening!!! You may have to blot if you're very oily, but your foundation will not slip off your face even then!! And your skin will never feel so soft in your life, literally like velvet!!! And even though it is one of the pricier foundations that you can buy, you can get a brand new one on Mercari for anywhere from $20-$35. That is where I got mine, brand new!!!

Get this foundation!! Run, don't walk to your nearest Chanel counter to get color matched, then go home and get the right color on your Mercari app. You can thank me later!!

This eyeliner smudges so badly. Applying on the waterline is a no go. Using on the eyelids makes me look like a halloween creep after few hours. Shame on you Chanel.

This has some beads, but it's not harsh or hard on the skin. It feels gentle and there is a noticeable clean and dewiness to the face after using it. It is so worth it bec. it only takes a bit to lather up.
