These palettes all look so fancy and nice, but the truth is they are just too soft. I have the purple toned one & found that it very difficult to get much pigment actually on my eye with any intensity. It doesnt seem to want to stick & even when using a wet brush what looked like the darkest of colours turned out really weak...
I give my face a 3 minute massage when i apply this clean scented oil to my face; it glides on, removes all my makeup and when i rinse it off with water it turns into suds and washes away leaving my face totally clean and almost feeling like i've moisturised too. No tight stripped feeling just clean skin!
I invested in this 5 mnths ago and I don't regret it! I have spot prone skin that flakes like crazy and visible pores on my nose and chin. I use this every day with whatever cleanser I want and i've had a massive reduction in all my problem areas. The only down side is it takes a long time to charge.
I have 'fresh rose' ~ it gives the perfect natural looking flush. It can be layered to the intensity you want, is easy to blend & has a subtle pink shimmer. The rose scent is divine & as you would expect at this price it is very luxurious. I have tried cheek tints, cream blushers, powder blushers, they disappear pretty quick, leave tide lines or don't look that natural; this does!
When new the polish goes on smoothly, whether you paint it on thick or thin, it dries hard & more glossy than any other polish i've tried, but over time (months) it goes gloopy & sometimes won't dry at all. My favourite is a duo with a base coat that smells of apricot and a top coat gives a real holographic finish AMAZING! it was a special edition ~ this is what Chanel is best at!
I bought a great non sparkly purple colour but was very dissapointed as it went on very watery. I am paranoid about polish drying well so i always make sure my nails are totally dry and oil free before application and leave loads of time between coats, but this stuff just wouldnt dry!! even after an hour and more i could mark the surface with my fingerprints!
I am always disappointed with the darker colours; the greens, purples, blues - they seem to be shot through with a dull charcoal grey colour if you view them from certain angles. For loose shimmer I would buy MAC or Bare Minerals ID in preference to this brand.
This is a light everyday moisturiser that is good value for money and has a pleasant clean smell. It is very watery when you apply it and was not moisturisng enough for my dry, prone to flaking skin. Probably a good basic for some skins but not for mine.
i love the eight hour lipcare range! This lipstick is less messy than the original liquid tubes, the coloured versions are great too. This conditions my lips better than anything else and stays on a long time too. The scent is very strong and herbal, but i like it. Warning though - it melts in hot climates! Like all over my handbag in Italy last summer! :(
