These are the colors that are worth all 5 lippies. I dont give all Chanel quads fives just because all arent just as good. This contains a deep wine plum, shimmery brownish taupe, shimmery pinky taupe, and a gorgeous champagne rose shade. None of the colors are actually suitable for highlighting because my skin is so light but I can pick a highlighting shade for my brow bone from some other …Read more

This and Chanel powders are my Holy grails. In my opinion they act similarly.
I love the container because it is very chic and practical. I have this in transparency 8 and it is a perfect fair shade for me. I love that this keeps my skin matte all day. I am not oily but I just think that now so fashionably glowy skin is not very attractive and often looks very greasy. Therefore I like my …

I swapped for this. I usually love Chanel foundation but did not enjoy this. I have had shade Vanilla and it was way too dark for me. Even though it is sheer it still makes me look muddy and icky. I threw it into a rubbish and my mom had found it and picked it up from there. Now someone wonders why did not I just give it to her at first place? She does not wear much makeup and I thought she …Read more

Nice packaging and it is pretty fool proof as it cant really look horrendous after the first application. But I still did not like it. This was my first self tanner. After first application I did not see any difference. After second application my skin turns yellow. I dont think I look like this when I get sunkissed. I dont tan yellow. Sorry this just did not make it for me. The pump bottle is …Read more

I had been passing by this product so many times dipping my finger in it and finally I bought it when they got it in Strawberrynet. I was looking for my perfect olivey eye shadow and first I thought this it is but it is not. It turns too much grey on me. It gives you a definitely a sexy smouldering smokey eye with some shimmer but it lacks something. Also I wore it to work with an eye shadow base …Read more

Well I never owned this product. My friend has this powder and I saw her always applying it. She is very fair and in fact just as fair as me with Scandinavian colouring. She thinks it looks so good as it is not too dark. Well It is not too dark. In fact it is too light. It makes her skin yellowy/peachy and shimmery. I have never thought even once that shes got a real tan. I actually thought whats …Read more

I was at the department store and I was not going to buy anything. I was looking at some Dior quints but for some reason I dont have any lusts for any of their quints. So I looked at Chanel spring look and I got my eyes at this quad and I loved the shades. They were not too sparckly and glittery but almost matte and smooth though you definitely see the shimmer on the direct sunlight. The only …Read more

My mom has this one and I am also wanting one after using hers. The purple here is similar to Chanel Tabou. There are the light pink and white for highlighting and black and perfect classy grey. I mainly use purple and black for lining and grey to shading. Next time when I need more greys I will get this one (or possibly earlier LOL). This quad has everything and it is perfect for cool green eyed …Read more

I was sucked by the brown packaging. I find these eye shadows very similar to Jane eye shadows. They are not bad at all but not the best in the world either. I had problems with wintergreen as it did not seem to blend evenly.

I love the color. I received a mini as an extra in a swap one time. I am a PPP and I think this is the perfect nude without too much pinkiness. But Shimmer? Where? I usually hate shimmer. On me it looks rather satiny and so smooth. I love that it has no scent.
