I’ve never purchased or even tried Chanel makeup before and I wanted one of their popular foundations to be my first purchase! Then somehow..I ended up with more than just a foundation, haha. I love what I bought so far and I can’t wait to try out more Chanel products.
What it is: Chanel’s newest foundation, Vitalumiere Aqua, is oil-free, has SPF 15 and is marketed as being like one’s second skin.
Why I like it: I love how light it felt when he applied it and he showed me that I can build up the coverage easily. We both agreed it was a good color match (B30).
Packaging: The packaging is plastic which may seem a little cheap for Chanel but I like it because I tend to drop and break things in glass bottles.
Tip: Because this foundation is oil-free, don’t set it with powder in areas that don’t get oily. The SA advised that if you do, the foundation can accentuate lines and wrinkles because it can be drying. I plan to only powder my forehead and my nose. With that being said, this foundation is great for those who have normal to oily skin types. Because I’m still a little dry, I will make sure my skin is hydrated before applying. Also, shake well before pouring out foundation.
Well since I was already there anyway….;) I will be doing a separate post on this product soon.
What it is: Rouge Allure Laque Luminous Satin Lip Lacquer in #75 Dragon. It’s a liquid with the intensity of a lipstick.
Ok, ok and one more thing…
I have a couple of MAC lipsticks but I have come to the conclusion that I dislike MAC lipsticks because they feel so drying (maybe just the ones I have). So I asked if they had a moisturizing lipstick in a low key color I can wear during the day.
What it is: Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF 15 in #99 Tazmania. It has a shimmer/glitter finish.
Why I like it: My lips felt moisturized with this lipstick on. I liked that I could rub my lips together as if I had chapstick on and it would feel “juicy”. I took it off shortly after but I will post a review soon after I figure out lasting power and whatnot.
Packaging: I love the simple and classic look of the packaging! It reminds me of an old-school lipstick, something that our moms would have on her vanity and we would admire and wish we could try on!
Since my Stila Smudgepot was a fail as a gel eyeliner, I bought MAC’s Fluidline in Blacktrack to try out. I picked up MAC’s 266 Small Angle Brush to go along with it. I hope this works out! :)
Happy Shopping! ♥ Tinna
