Intoducing one of my new favs the Chanel Ultra Le Teint Velvet Blurring Smooth Effect Foundation SPF 15. Its the latest in their foundation offering and its gorgeous of course. The origional foundation was the Perfection Lumiere Velvet but its made a comback with a new name and finish. Am waiting to get my hands on my shade so sadly I can’t show you what it looks like on me. I did get to test it out on one of my friends and its truly beautiful on. As it says on the bottle it blurs and smooths the complexion leaving skin looking flawless and radiant. Love it.
The gorgeous Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Lipsticks landed on my desk last week and boy are they pretty. I am definitely a Chanel girl though and though and when it comes to the lippies I can’t get enough. I got to test out the 3 new beautiful shades of which one is the Rouge Allure Ink Fusion the pink/red shade and the gold and berry shade are the Allure Ink. All gorgeous quality that look so pretty on and are so easy to apply. I love the lipstick packaging with the frosted glass case that just feels really luxurious.
Introducing the latest new Chanel eye collection that launches in SA this month. I got to play with one of the Les 4 Ombre’s eye quads in blurry mauve, the waterproof stylo in Black Wood and Le Revolution Volume de Chanel mascara in Burgundy. The whole collection has 4 beautiful quads to choose from and then you choose the liner and mascara to match. The collection was created by Luca Pica and its all about second skin smokey using just 3 products. Its all about self expression and playing with colour. I love the colour mascara’s as it really creates an alternative to the usual black.
I wanted to chat about a few of my favourite Chanel beauty products today especially for those thinking of splurging but not sure what to get. Of course their eyeshadows are lovely and basically everything Chanel is lovely but here is a little selection. I have selected mostly makeup items but also with one skincare product too from the Hydra Beauty range. For me makeup is all about good skin that’s contoured and glowing so that’s why I have chosen the makeup items in this post. Chanel have quite a few foundations to choose from and it can get confusing what to go for. Here I have gone for a dewy one but their latest matt foundation is also amazing. It really depends on what look you are going for.
I always love to share the makeup trends its something I have done since I started my blog just over 2 years ago. This month we saw the AW16 Couture fashion weeks with the brands like Chanel and Christian Dior show casing their new fashion lines as well as hair and beauty trends created by some of the legend makeup artists like Pat Macgrath.
