Hello my pretty ladies! And hello boys, why not? Maybe you’re here for some holiday gift ideas. ?
Just as promised, here I am with a complete review of the Chanel `s latest beauty and make-up products. It took me a while to test all of them, but I finally managed to do it and now it`s time for the full review. So without further ado, let`s do this.?
The Hydra Beauty Regimen
Or as I like to call it, the dewiness fountain. At first I wasn’t too excited about these products as they seemed very strange to me. What felt strange was the fact that they where getting absorbed into the skin in just a second, leaving it feeling tight. I was left wondering in what way are these hydrating, I couldn`t get it. The thing is that in the beginning I was only using these before I went to bed, so I wasn`t aware of what was going to happen about 20 minutes later ( that`s when you start to notice that your skin is getting moisturized). I did wake-up with plumper skin and a more even skin tone but still, it was strange. It`s only when I started to apply them in the morning, when I got to see what was actually going on. And that`s when they won me over.
These products use some sort of very smart technology invented at Harvard, that relies on micro camellia droplets to promote hydration. And those micro droplets are packed with ingredients that remain intact till the moment of application. But what`s really unusual about this range, is the way it works. Cause the hydration levels don`t grow right away, as you massage the products into the skin. They start to grow slowly a little after the application and are maintained throughout the day. As these products are releasing the precious camellia extract for many hours after the application, they`re providing continuous hydration. That being said I can only imagine these would be pure gold for ladies who are coping with dry skin. No more hydrating mists in the middle of the day.?
Oh, and they`re also the perfect make-up base. This is how I achieve that dewy, radiant look that I totally love.
La Creme Main
Just look at it! It`s so cute you just can`t get your hands off of it. I can only imagine how difficult it will be to say goodbye to this container after I finish the cream. It looks so minimal delicious. And speaking of delicious, Blink tried to eat it a couple of times. I guess he also loves its Chanel-ish, flowery scent. ?May I add that it also has the power of strengthening your nails? Win! Win! Win!
Now let`s get to make-up!
Rouge Allure Velvet
This is one of those very long lasting lipsticks. I applied it and 6 hours and 2 snacks later (Yup, I do snack a lot ☺) the lipstick was still intact. 10 hours, 2 snacks, a dinner and a glass of wine later, it was still there. Not intact, but there. What I love about this one is that it doesn`t feel drying. Like these long lasting lipsticks tend to do.
Rouge Allure Ink
This one goes on the lips very creamy and slowly transforms into a stain. It`s a little transparent, so be aware it won`t look like it does in the container. But you can always build it up. It`s also ultra-long lasting. I would recommend it to the ladies who want just a little color tint on their lips. I like to apply it with my fingers right in the center of my lips and blend it nicely.
This one is my favorite out of the 3, as it`s very hydrating and smooth. But if you`d like a bold, long lasting color for fall, than you should go for Rouge Allure Velvet. This one is more for the chapped lips ladies, like myself. ?
Just as I assumed when I did the unboxing, this has become my favorite palette. It really is `essentiele` as it`s got all you might need for a beautiful, fresh complexion: concealer, highlighter (my favorite) and a cream blush. Let`s just say that if I would have to travel and take only one make-up item with me, this would be it.
Pinceau Duo Correcteur Retractable
What I liked about this concealer brush is that it`s got a dual-tip, so it incorporates both brushes that you might need for the best application. A flat one for applying the concealer and a round one for blending it seamlessly. What I don`t like about it is the fact that it`s made out of a combination of natural and synthetic bristles. Most concealers are cream or liquid, so natural bristles aren`t too appropriate. I would have loved for it to be made completely out of synthetic bristles. I`ll use it to apply gel eyeshadows though. I`m pretty sure it will do great.
It`s a very long lasting and pigmented gel eyeshadow. It`s one of those products that allow you to create a long lasting Smokey eye look in just 2 seconds. I love the products that can be applied using your fingers.
Les 4 Ombres
These eyeshadows are awesome. They are very pigmented and come in all these amazing shades. Just as expected they`re very rich and easy to blend.
Signature de Chanel
This one is also ultra-resistant. At first I tried it on my hand to get the ink coming through properly. 48 hours later and more than 25 times when I washed my hands, you could still see clearly the lines I`ve drawn 2 days earlier. The only way to remove it is by using a waterproof make-up remover. Plus, the stiff pointy brush makes for a very quick and easy application. The only downfall is that you have to keep it in a vertical position in order for the ink to come through. But that `s an issue with every eyeliner pen out there.
Le Vernis Chanel
If you would have asked me a couple of months ago if it`s worth buying a Chanel nail polish, I am pretty sure I would have said `Are you insane? It`s a nail polish. Why would you spend that much on a nail polish?` Well, I changed my mind. I am not selling you a bill of goods, trust me. These polishes really blew me away. Why? Because they are just as resistant as a soak-off gel polish. And I`m saying this because I tested them thoroughly. 3 rounds of chestnut peeling and the polish was still on my nails. Le Vernis is a true champion. ?
That`s it, I spilled it all out. ? These products were all gifted to me, but the opinions are mine 100%.
