I am so happy Chanel brought back bath powders! I've always worn No. 5 and enjoyed the body cream and powder- -both are perfect for enjoying the scent, but not being overwhelming to others. I love, love, love this! A real treat and worth every dollar!

enjoy!

Lip Gloss - CHANEL - Aqualumiere Gloss in Tangerine Dream

I'm a self confessed Chanel addict and the lip glosses are the best. This colour is perfect for someone with my colouring - red hair with blonde highlights; Chanel 1.0 - 1.5 foundation. I wear it over a nude lipliner and staying power is good for a gloss.

cheers!

I'm on my third "nude" pencil - it is a staple in my stash and the one I know will always work (those days when even "thinking" about a lipcolour is a challenge!). I use it as the base with Twinkle or Revlon Nude Lustre and it gets me thru the morning. Chanel is quality all around. enjoy beautiful ladies!

Crème - CHANEL - Teint Innocence Cream to Powder Compact Foundation [DISCONTINUED]

I've been using this product for about a week or 10 days and I love it! I've used Chanel foundations (almost exclusively) for close to 30 years, including Teint Naturelle, VitaLumiere and Double Perfection- again, Chanel has outdone themselves. It is pricey, but takes just a little to perfect my colour, I can carry it in my purse and if I want more, layering is an option. Another …Read more

I love this colour! I'm not a "red lipstick" person, but can wear this one sheer or layered for more colour. It is a true red and cheery (no blue)-- I'm usually a brown toned lip but when I wore this on Easter I loved the look and have worn it a number of times. As with all Chanel products - top quality and distinctive packaging. Cheers! chum

Lipstick - Laura Mercier - Amaretto

This is a great shade - not too brown, not too shimmery, not too anything. It is very close to Chanel Captif. I wore it one day when I went to Sephora's mother store and one of the MA's stopped me to compliment my choice of lipcolour. I'm fairly new to the LM line and so far am very pleased with the quality. I can't wait until the new Gold Digger collection arrives - my SA …Read more

I've been using this product for about 2 years and, like all Chanel products, the quality is outstanding. I am very, very pale and this makes my skin look almost transparent and clear; an excellent base under Chanel foundation. Speaking of Chanel foundations, don't you love that they give generous samples? I'm going on a mini-vacation so my SA at Saks gave me a handful of my …Read more

Eye Shadow - Laura Mercier - Eye Colour in Guava

I really like this colour as an all over wash for day. I don't like the sparkley shadows, but this has just the right touch of shimmer. For me, the colour is very wearable, not too pink and I've also worn it over whatever colour I'm using in the crease to look more "natural" after applying three shades of shadow! . Cheers!

Fragrances - CHANEL - No.5

Mar/15/2008

I cannot imagine being without my Chanel No 5. I've worn it forever but can understand why some don't care for it, using too much is overpowering. I think it takes confidence to wear only one or two fragrances rather than jumping on each new one that pops up daily. This is THE classic and when someone asks me what I'm wearing and my response is No 5 - I usually get "no …Read more
