Loose Powders - CHANEL - Poudre Cristalline

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/23/2010

My HG powder :-) I was wary of trying it to begin with as it's white and I'm pale enough as it is, but I needn't have been concerned. It sinks in to my skin, leaving it matte but with a halo effect. My skin looks glowing and healthy.
The powder puff is luxurious and soft, and is washable. I tip the pot upside down and then pat the puff gently across areas that are prone to …

Polishes - CHANEL - Lilac Sky

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2010

This colour is beautiful! It's a pinky/purple with a subtle shimmer.
It's incredibly feminine and girly, but also classy at the same time - something I love about Chanel polishes (Nouvelle Vague is also the same). I have had many compliments whenever I've worn it.
Application is the same as with any other Chanel polish - I find the longer I allow the coats to dry, the …

Polishes - CHANEL - Intermezzo

5.0

Sep/07/2010

Gorgeous! This polish is one of my (many) favourites from Chanel. The colour is unexpected and unusual - white shot through with an iridescent pink. It's stunning.
My one complaint is the application. It's SO difficult to get this on evenly. I normally have to put 3, sometimes 4, thin coats on (too thick and it bubbles...).
The wear is as with any other Chanel polish - …

Polishes - CHANEL - Particulière

5.0

Sep/07/2010

I love this polish. It's unlike any other polish I own, and completely versatile. It's a taupey/mushroomy colour and I was worried it wouldn't look "right" against my pale, pale skin but it does. Even if it didn't I'd rock it anyway!
I find 2 coats works best (and I tend to wait 10-15 mins between coats to minimise any bubbles) and it wears exceptionally …

Concealers - CHANEL - LIFT LUMIÈRE CONCEALER Smoothing and Rejuvenating Eye Contour Concealer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/15/2010

This concealer is everything I want from an undereye concealer, and more! Everything else I have ever used beneath my eyes has looked cakey and exacerbated any fine lines, which just ages me.

The colour is perfect (I use 01) - it blends seamlessly and gives good, natural coverage. If I've had a particularly rough night I can layer it up if need be and it never looks cakey and …

Mascara - CHANEL - Inimitable Intense Mascara

Aug/15/2010

I'm normally an Exceptionnel wearer but the SA on my counter recommended this mascara in Rouge Noir to me. I'm a HUUUUUGE Rouge Noir nail polish and lipstick fan so it made sense I'd love this...and I do! It shouldn't really work as a mascara but it does.

When you pull the brush out of the tube it doesn't look like anything special, I admit that (it looks …

Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 64 Pink Explosion

Aug/15/2010

The hole left by Chanel's decision to discontinue Narcisse JC has been hard to fill, and I don't want to speak too soon but this JC may just be the one for the job....

I have pale, pale skin and I was concerned this would look too "dolly" but if applied with a light touch it looks beautiful.It's just a beautiful, natural looking wash of colour. I apply it with …

Eye Shadow - CHANEL - Quadra Eye Shadow - 19 Enigma

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/15/2010

Ugh...This quad is perfection. I'm loving it. I appreciate the fact that I can blend the colours out for a more low-key, daytime look or really layer them on for a heavier night look.

The colours all work together - typical of a Chanel quad. I also like to use the darker colours wet with an eyeliner brush instead of pencil eyeliner as I personally feel that it ties the whole look …

Polishes - CHANEL - Le Vernis Nail Colour in Paradoxal #509

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/15/2010

WOW! This polish is beautiful, which is something I have come to expect from Chanel over the years but even so. I was excited the moment I heard about this polish and have waited many long months to finally get my hands on it (for some very odd reason we in the UK seem to get the new collections months after the US does - most perplexing and annoying!), but it doesn't …Read more

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Glossimer - Bikini Peach 257

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/12/2010

Love this gloss! It looks just as beautiful over a lipstick (currently Darling Rouge Allure) as it does on its own. It's ideal for a chic, polished look. It's a little creamier than other Glossimers I've tried but that's a good thing. I've found it's also a bit more moisturising as well. I bought it on Friday and went in on Saturday and bought a back up... says it …Read more
