I’m not sure why it took me so long to pick up this Cream Bronzer from Chanel – the Bronze Universel is one of those things I said I’d buy one day, but finally got round to it when Debenhams had 10% off recently. This has lots of positive reviews, and I wasn’t sure if I’d like it – I pretty much dislike any bronzer too orange or too shimmery. They say: The velvety finish […]
I picked up this Rouge Allure Laque Lip Colour a while ago from Cheap Smells (for about £13 – they are pretty expensive at full price, about £21-£22 if I remember correctly). The texture and pigmentation is just heavenly. Not sure why I decided to go for Dynastie which is a richly coloured coral-red. Its quite dramatic – more than what I would normally wear in the daytime anyway: Its ok, I’m not bowled over […]
After buying Freeze Aqualumiere because a purdy shop assistant told me to, I went back for a second purchase. The thing about the Chanel Aqualumiere Lip Glosses, is that they aren’t the most exciting range of colours so I found myself potentially picking out a few (I adore the formula) but none of the colours are *wow*. Eventually I settled for this Aqualumiere, called Colibri – sources say this was a Limited Edition shade for […]
There is a reason why I eventually ended up with my first ever Chanel Aqualumiere Gloss. I visited a counter about a week ago where an extremely pretty (and slightly familiar Chanel SA) served me. She had that Angelina-esque-pillowy-lip look about her, and for a few moments I had doubts about my sexuality. Anyway I couldn’t go without asking her what lip gloss she was wearing and she waved it in my face prettily (but […]
If there is one lipstick that is in this very moment it time hard to get your paws on, its the Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in 05 Mademoiselle. Its the lipstick Vanessa Paradis is wearing in the main Chanel advert. Its like the perfect rose pink. Chanel surprised me with this texture. I was expecting a lipstick in a similar texture to YSL Rouge Volupte – mega soft and creamy. Instead, Chanel did exactly what […]
Everyone has been talking about Chanel Rouge Coco but I haven’t had time to go out and look at it in person yet. But I have no doubt that its spectacular. Chanel lip products tend to be. I love Vanessa Paradis – always have. Think she is the perfect woman for Johnny Depp. So the question is – what shades should I check out ladies?
When there’s no new make up products out or brands to obsess over, I get itchy to try something out that I haven’t tried before. So I bought this Chanel Concealer, ‘Estompe (I always think of elephants when I see that word) Eclat’ corrective stick from Boots because its just one of those products I’ve always wanted to try. It comes in a nice stick, convenient for on the go use. It only comes in […]
For Fall, Chanel launched the Venise de Chanel collection and the one item that caught my eye was the Limited Edition Eye Gloss Quad: They say: This quartet of gel-cream shades – pearl, gold, black and red black – delivers a subtle luminous sheen that blends beautifully, from sheer to intense The weird colour in this quad is the red – I can see why it reflects the Venice theme, I just wish it was […]
