Did not gently remove my makeup thoroughly, you had to rub the oil a few times with hands to remove and any rubbing is not good. I had to do 2 applications to remove foundation and liner. I wear long-wear makeup but that shouldn't be a factor and didn't remove my waterproof mascara at first go. I must of use another about 1 tsp. Then the splashing of water did not work. I had to use …Read more

Late to the Chanel party. (I love Chanel Sensuel elixir should have checked out makeup and nail polish sooner). I’m not the best at a home manicure and do not enjoy salons for many reasons. Next $28 for a nail polish was I crazy? Love the color my nails have a tinge of blue so this pale pink is the perfect shade. I’ve tried just about every Essie pink streaky polish out this color next to …Read more

Gabrielle made me wonder how something can be so Chanel and so unlike Chanel at the same time? The thing is it has the hiss and purr - albeit modestly- of the voluptious Chanels I'm used to but it does not have the sensual animalics accompanying that hiss and purr. Some Chanels such as No.5 Eau Premiere - which I love actually- and Coco Mademoiselle are critised by some perfume lovers for …Read more

Beautiful quad for spring highlighting. Lovely flower shaped shadows. All pale and perfect for under brows and inner eyes. Not to shimmery, but they add a dramatic brightness to the eyes and somehow emphasize eye color. I received this as a gift and plan to enjoy it all summer long.
I bought this in shade #25. It's a coral, pink /red color. It's really hard to describe but on my darker skin tone just makes it look healthy with a pop of color. I wear Cadiz in Nars Sheer Glow for reference. I use a brush to apply this but have also used fingers and both applications are flawless. I love that it's easily transportable. This also works as a great lip color so a …Read more
For some reason I felt the need to buy this as soon as it was released (so right before summer last year in France). I have combination skin and a darker skin tone. Both things that don't normally tend to be a winner with Chanel complexion products. I purchased medium deep, I wear Cadiz in Nars Sheer Glow for reference. This has minimal coverage and can probably cover a few skin tones …Read more

It terms of how it looks and wears this is probably one of my favourite foundations. I love the look it gives. Unfortunately I am allergic to SPF & I keep going back to this and thinking I'll try again, but it always causes the same reaction. The formula is very liquid, don't apply this with a sponge, fingers or brush only.
I have given my rating based on how it looks and …Read more

For reference, I’m in my late 30’s with combo dehydrated skin (normal/slightly dry cheeks and slightly oily in the t-zone). I have a bit of rosacea on both cheeks which can be pretty sensitive. My preference makeup wise is natural no-makeup makeup.
I adore this foundation. I coveted it for quite a while because of the price tag, but got it when it was on offer in Boots. I wouldn’t …Read more
