Blush - CHANEL - Joues Contraste Powder Blush - Jersey

I am surprised to see that I have no written a review for what is the best shade of blush that I have used to date and others concur. I am light-complexioned, but not fair, I used to have a great amount of yellow in my skin and age(66) seems to have normalized that. I have just moments ago swatched this on a piece of white paper so I could give an accurate description.

Here goes: …

I am happy to read all the reviews of this wonderful fragrance, alas I am heartbroken that this fragrance has been withdrawn by LVMH. Although I am a sophisticated woman I am not even close to conversant in the articulations that I have read in this commentary.

What I can say is the moment of inhalation (six years ago)I bought the body cream and the 3.4-ounce size and am now scouring …

I also wanted to like this, unfortunately, I agree with another reviewer(Lizzievet8)I think that's her 'handle'. I tried six-ways-from-Sunday to get this to do something anything. I have normal to slightly dry in winter and slightly oil in summer. I have La Prairie Caviar foundation, which lasts for two years and counting and yes it is still fresh or if you prefer non-rancid. I …Read more

Blush - CHANEL - Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Stick

Now that I am entirely owned and consumed by anything Chanel that begins with Les Beiges..., I have finally gotten around to giving my opinion.

I wear #21 which is a soft pink shade no discernible glitter, shimmer, etc. that I can see, I have read it often described as a peachy/pink but to my eye, it is just a soft pretty grownup shade of pink. I bought this a year ago at the time that I …

I have a light neutral/yellow toned complexion and I wear No.50 as a bronzer, meaning I apply it lightly around the perimeter of my long oval shaped face throughout the year. It has no orange or red in it whatsoever, I am very glad that the makeup artist at Nordstrom's Canel counter, as she and another saleslady were quick to point out that fact. This is a chic two-toned(bone and black) …Read more

Eye Shadow - CHANEL - Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eye Shadow

This review is for Scintillance, which is a highly reflective neutral veering toward shimmering peach, emphasis on shimmer. When I was in Neiman Marcus in September 2018 I managed to allow myself to be gravitationally pulled towards Chanel and I seemed to almost magically be seated by Daniel's hypnotic powers. It started slowly at first; Blanc de Chanel/Multi-use Illuminating(there's …Read more

Treatments (Eye) - TATCHA - The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment

I am very impressed with this cream it is a brightener NOT a concealer, if concealing is what you want/need/desire you will be dissatisfied with this cream. I use this at the very very top of my cheekbone, the area directly below the eye socket depression. I place a few small dots, then pat-pat-pat and then...lightly move your fingertips back and forth to get a nice even distribution, I also …Read more

I tried Chanel concealer for the first time ever, interestingly I now use Chanel makeup(not treatment)almost exclusively; Joues Contraste(I have four and love them all), lipstick Rouge Coco in Michele, lipgloss in Subtil, and the black gel/wax/polymer eyeliner on the inner rim of my upper eyelid (which does not budge)...and yet I never tried Chanel's concealers. The young lady at …Read more

Eye Shadow - Surratt - Artistique Eyeshadow

Ombre is a dead ringer for Blondie by Nars, except with Blondie you get almost twice as much shadow, I understand that the Surratt shadows can be used wet, I have not tried that as I only played with it at Barney's while waiting for my package. I think the whole line is madly overpriced for what it delivers and I've been known to buy Chanel makeup, which I think delivers much more value …Read more

I read about this color in a couple of beauty postings, naturally(due to unhealthy makeup obsession)I was curious. I tried it on and thought "this is very, very sticky(the gloss and color are longlasting, however), the color is not exceptional, I do like its small size(perfect for an evening bag) but that's about it. This is not worth $15 let alone $32.
