Me: NC15-20 with highly sensitive and rosacea prone dry skin. I will preface my review by stating that I have only used the product twice but this was sufficient to assess that it is just not right for me. Now onto the review, I have an preference for high end products. I love the luxurious feel, packaging etc of these products and am prepared to shell out the $$$ since it means I enjoy applying …Read more

Crème - CHANTECAILLE - Future Skin Foundation

Jul/04/2010

Me: NC15-20 with olive undertones. I wear Future Skin in Alabaster.


Pros: Natural satin finish with light to medium coverage. More on the light side I would say since I do definitely need to still use concealer under my eyes and around my nose. It does layer quite well to medium coverage however. I prefer to use my fingers to press the product into the skin. It can be a tad …

This is totally not your traditional TM and thats why I like it but if you are looking for that then this probably wont be up your alley. Now why I love this product...Pros: Perfect truly glow-y medium coverage (1 pump of product) or lovely lighter coverage (1/2 pump of product). This actually has more coverage than my summer HG base product, Chantecaille Future Skin Foundation. I do find since …Read more

Me: NC20ish olive undertones with dry sensitive skin, very prone to allergic reactions. I purchased this after trying a generous sample from Mecca Cosmetic in Sydney (great customer service, they actually have drawers of sample jars they can fill for you but with their crazy inflated prices, its a tradeoff). I wear Mont Blanc, which is a decent match in colour depth although perhaps a tad too …Read more

Me: LLL NC15-20/Highly Sensitive Dry-ish Skin. I have olive green undertones to my skin but a tendency to surface redness. I received a sample sachet of this product and used it once, I unfortunately had an allergic reaction resulting in itchy bumps all over my face which lasted a few days.


Pros: Awesome coverage and an initially flattering finish. I used this for a night out …

Lip Gloss - Dior - Creme de Gloss Creamy Rose (441)

Dior Creme de Gloss is my HG lipgloss, so far I have Creamy Rose, Pink Essence and Plum Elixir.


They have creamy opaque coverage (some have shimmer but not frosty at all) and they feel so smooth and moisturising on the lips. They arent sticky at all but quite thick so they have fairly good lasting power. I also find many of the more pigmented colours almost stain your lips a …

Me: LLL NC15-20/Highly Sensitive Dry-ish Skin. I have olive green undertones to my skin but a tendency to surface redness.

First off, I will start by saying I love JCs! I find they have a beautiful texture and they give the look of the colour coming from within. The lasting power is excellent. The packaging is luxe and gorgeous cos hey, it is chanel! I have found nearly all my HG …

Apr/25/2009

Me: LLL NC15-20/Highly Sensitive Dry-ish Skin. I have olive green undertones to my skin but a tendency to surface redness. I should mention that my Rose Dust was the Euro formula as there seems to be some discrepancy with colours and sometime texture in terms of Euro vs US JCs.
