You can’t beat a bit of Chanel. I started collecting the brand, tentatively when I was about 19, and it still makes me feel special when I use it.
I made a slight haulage at my local Chanel Counter:
It’s all about the base baby. I had a sachet of Matt Lumiere foundation and loved how it looked and how long it lasted. When I got on the counter the SA convinced me Pro Lumiere was the one to go for. I like it. But I think I prefer the finish of the Matte. D’oh!
I am mad into primers at the moment – so I got Le Blanc De Chanel. It looks white when you apply it into the skin but it feels lovely and soft. It’s a gel formula.
I wasn’t remotely interested in the Spring Palette, Mystic eyes – boring browns and things but swatching it, I fell in love with the colours and more importantly, the texture. I have a fair few Chanel palettes but I do find them quite dry and chalky at times – this must have a new formula because it’s lovely and soft:
The dark brown and silver are HAWT!
I also got a blush in Reflex. It’s a gold shimmer coral. When faced between the choice of a peach based blush and a pink, for me, the peach will always win.
Finally I got the Spring lipgloss is Beige Guitare. The rose shade they had was also stunning but Beige had lots of pretty multi sparkles – its a pretty shimmery nude:
