Makeup Brushes -Chanel -Powder Brush

on 1/18/2018 10:04:00 PM

I don’t know which number of brush this is. It’s a mini powder brush from a set I got for $125 sadly I can’t find the rest of the brushes just this but I use it for evthing from blending hi-lite & concealer to loose powder it’s a mini brush. It does shed every so often a few hairs it’s annoying bc my Charlotte Tilbury, Inglot, MAC & ELF (dude...elf!) brushes never shed. I tucked away the other brushes & now I can’t remember where I put them. Arghhh! They will turn up. This is my kind of evthing brush except fdtn (& eyes of course) it is the last thing touching on my face besides lips go on very last. I’d be lost without this little guy! I’ll find my brushes sooner or later. No biggie yet not time to panic (yet) I’ll report back when I find my set fwiw :)

Fav!! Light weigh I would say this is a light to medium coverage I use this one a quick and easy day when i only apply concealer and powder with this. It evens out my skin very nicely.

Lotions/ Creams -Chanel -No 5 Body Lotion

How can a Chanel No.5 body lotion smell NOTHING LIKE No.5????
I'm so disappointed.
The right thing to do would be to rate it at one lipstick only, but as it smells reasonably good I'll give it a two lipsticks.

NOTHING LIKE No. 5, DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY, BUY THE EDT.


Blush -Chanel -Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 72 Rose Initiale

on 1/15/2018 7:43:00 PM

This for me is such a nice blush shade that does not lean orange. Ive tried rose ecrin, rose bronze, elegance and rose petale. They all looked very orange on my light pink undertone skin. I am les beiges n.10 chanel foundation I'm beige rose 22 and mac nw20, nars concealer creme brûlée , tarte shape tape in light.(i hope this helps those who have my similar skintone) i wanted something on the natural flush pink side. This shade is neutral on my cheeks, its not too cool or warm. Its just a "i see my crush" blushing bashful pink but not like those cool tone babydoll pinks that looks ridiculously fake on the cheeks. This blush was recommended for me and i knew i had to get it once the SA put it on my cheeks. It looks so pretty and natural i couldn't pass it up. I disliked the other ones I've tried i mentioned earlier because for my personal preference i don't like the peachy look on my skin because i tend to look sallow and unhealthy and its more obvious I'm wearing a blush, so i can't really pull off anything thats bronzey or peachy warm toned blushes. rose initial looks great with mac faux lipstick and some mascara for a very natural yet put together look.


Powder -Chanel -Les Beiges - Healthy Glow Sheer Powder

on 1/15/2018 7:35:00 PM

I usually use beige rose 22 in chanel but i gotten color matched with n.10 in les beiges because it has more of a pink undertone. the n.20 was a bit yellow on me. I initially really loved the le teint powder foundation in chanel but that one was getting too heavy/dry for my liking. I needed something light and luminous. This powder is light coverage but will add a little color to your skin. For me, i use my shape tape concealer on areas i need and i put this powder over to set it. This makes me skin looks very natural/ skin-like and it doesn't make me look like i have a lot of product on. I can touch up with this any time anywhere and it wont look cakey. It doesnt dry out my skin or look cracked. It has a great radiance to it and the name does say healthy glow and they aren't bs-ing. if you are looking for a silky/smooth finishing powder on the natural side, this would be your choice.

Pros-
No breakout
Nondrying
Natural radiance
Great for Touchup
Doesnt feel heavy
Not cakey

Con-
Price
Smell/fragrance might bother some people
No coverage
If you have very oil skin you would need to blot more

glad I didn’t buy it.. my name is Gabrielle. I’m disappointed.


Misc Beauty Tools -Chanel -Compact Mirror

This lives in my purse for touch ups. My MAC mirror lives on my vanity if that’s saying anything. They are both chic but I like the chanel mirror much better. It’s slim & feels luxe. It was $42 (eep!) but a mirror is something ev woman should have I agree unless you don’t wear MU. I lost the velvet case but pulling this out makes me feel super bourgeois like I’m a real lady. Nothing tacky about this mirror. Lights are kind of tacky.

This serum is quite rich. I only need 1 pump for my whole face it really hydrate my skin after use. It give a little sticky feel and shine but I top with moisturizer and loose powder.

Fragrances -Chanel -coco mademoiselle body oil spray

on 1/15/2018 9:47:00 AM

I gave the edp version of this fragrance one lipstick only, but the oil version is 5 lipsticks. It's beautiful. It's soft and creamy, and comfortable. While the perfume gives me a headache, this is soothing. Very good indeed.
It's quite lasting on me. I sprayed it about 4pm, and it lasted till 10 am on my clothes although I didn't spray directly on them.
But if you're looking for the hydration qualities of an oil, you will be disappointed. I believe the purpose of this product is just another way of perfuming the skin, not moisturizing it.


Misc Beauty Tools -Chanel -Compact Mirror

I have something about pocket mirrors, I am obsessed with having a nice one because I always touch up my lipstick in public and I don't want an ugly or cheap looking mirror. I used to have a gorgeous round one that had rhinestones and pearls on it but I've had it for a while and it lost a few rhinestones so I had to replace it.
So I ordered this one which is like the total opposite of what I had because it's so classic and simple. It is a lovely mirror but what I don't like about it is that it's not really heavy like I expect more "luxe" products to feel like and I also am a bit embarrassed to have people see the Chanel logo and think I'm vain for having a Chanel mirror or worse, that it's a counterfeit mirror.


Moisturizers -Chanel -La Solution 10 de Chanel

Sorry but you really are just paying for the brand name with this one. I love the effort to keep it basic, I think thats truly amazing for a high-end brand. However for some reason this always caused my skin to feel slightly burny... mind you I don't have sensitive skin at all, so this was odd for me. Im thinking there may be too much phenoxyethanol in it but not sure. Would not re-purchase. Also did not find it very moisturizing.

Lipstick -Chanel -Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle 05 [DISCONTINUED]

on 1/14/2018 2:09:00 PM

I bought this lipstick recently so I'm surprised to see it described as "discontinued" - I know it was reformulated about two years ago, so perhaps the description refers to the pre-reformulation version? Anyways, I love this lipstick - Mademoiselle is a browned-rose, so it's an elegant, classic shade which is very flattering. It's definitely one of my favourites.

Fragrances -Chanel -No 5 l'eau

on 1/13/2018 1:29:00 PM

If you can imagine a wooden citrusy No5 edp, this is it. It's very good, although I wouldn't say it's gorgeous.
What I like most about it is the capacity it has to remind you of No5 but still be completely different.
It also reminds me of No19, as it's very fresh.
But it has the same problem of most Chanel perfumes I love, (such as No5 edt and No5 eau premiere): it doesn't last at all on the skin. On clothes it lasts a little better though.

Fragrances -Chanel -No 5 Eau Premiere

This is almost as good as No5 edt, which is my favorite fragrance. It's mesmerizing. It's a little powdery, and flowery, but unfortunately my vocabulary for describing perfumes is not well developed. The only thing I can say is that it makes me think of a bouquet of old fashioned flowers, dainty and pastel colored. It makes me think of a field of flowers, walking through it and smelling it in the breeze.
It's my second favorite perfume now and I simply cannot live without it anymore.
