Chanel makeup


Introducing the new gorgeous Chanel Ultra Teint All Day Comfort Flawless Finish Foundation that landed on my desk. It couldn’t have come at a better time because I was actually looking for a new foundation for myself.  When you have a Chanel foundation on your face well you just feel amazing really. In this post I chat about the new foundation plus I have put together a look with some Chanel products. The finished look is super simple but really pretty with gorgeous glowing skin.

I really am so lucky to be able to work with Chanel which is such an amazing makeup and skincare brand. The Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss landed on my desk and I didn’t just get 1 I got 4!!! Thanks Sarah for my goodies sending you much love. They launched in SA last month and yes they are on the pricey side of lip glosses but as you know its Chanel right??? So whats a little splurge here and there.

Chanel have done it again by introducing another gorgeous foundation to their makeup collection. I already fell in   love with the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation earlier this year.  When the new foundation landed on my desk I was super excited to try. Introducing the Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue foundation (R990) which I tried and tested on my model Anica for the Tamara Cherie SS16 look book and editorial.

Anything Chanel launching I am always excited and when the delivery man comes with a box from Chanel my day has literally been made especially since the Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation is finally here. If you don’t know anything about the Les Beiges line its all about healthy glowing skin which started out with powders and then some gorgeous bronzers and now the foundation is being added to the family. For those of you based in SA its heading your way on the 19th Feb so you better put that date in the diary if you want to go test this one out. There are 12 shades in the collection so hopefully there is one for you, it comes in a 30ml pump bottle and retails at R785.

I can’t quite get my head around that Christmas is around the corner and that 2016 isn’t that far away and because next year I turn the big 40. As always Chanel bring us some gorgeous goodies for christmas to either spoil ourselves with or get someone else to spoil us. I got my hands on a couple items from the holiday collection Rouge Noir Absolutment to play around with plus a mini version of their cult perfume Chanel no 5.

When a  new collection from Chanel comes out and lands at my door well what can I say its a  happy day for me because who doesn’t love Chanel? The latest Chanel Spring 15 makeup collection is launching in SA in 17th Jan and its as gorgeous as ever. There are 2 key looks from the collection the beautiful smokey eye from one of the eye palettes with one of the Rouge Allure lipsticks and then the liner rimmed eye with the matt berry lip both equally as gorgeous.

Rouge Allure

For all you Chanel lovers out there Chanel launched the new Rouge Allure Lipgloss and three new Rouge Allure shades to get you Spring/Summer ready. I got my hands on the candy pink shades for both you can either wear on the own or apply the gloss over the lipstick to get that intense shine that is so bang on trend.

Rouge Allure

Now I am a big fan of the Chanel lipsticks so am always happy to add to my collection. The latest colours have something for most skin tones the pink being better for the paler skin tone and then there is a chocolate and a deep blackcurrant shade for the darker skin tones. They launched in stores yesterday and as you know Chanel isn’t cheap by any means retailing at R495 so either you think of it as an investment or bribe your man to get you one.

Rouge Allure

The glosses come in 11 shades ranging from the nude, all shades of pink, orange, plum, red, chocolate and blackcurrant. I do love Chanel packaging and with this gloss you click the bottom and out the gloss pops so its pretty fancy. The shade I have on its own is not an intense colour because I have a tan at the moment, but if you apply over the pink lipstick then it will give you some lucious looking lips. These glosses retail at R505 so if you buying both its a big investment. You may just want to go for a darker shade like the Pirate Red which will be a more intense colour on the lips without the lipstick but if you going to pay that amount of money for a gloss you really have to be a Chanel fan.

The gloss does have an intense shine due to its combination of film-forming polymer and glass microbeads which creates that lacquered effect, while enhancing the lips and giving them a plumper appearance. Ingredients such as Sappan Wood, Matcha Green Butter and a Vitamin E derivitive to keep lips smooth, antioxidants to protect the lips and emolliant oils to maintain the hydration in the lips.

Chanel Les Beige Healthy Glow Powder Review

So a while back I posted about the new Chanel Healthy Glow Powder. Well after much searching as it sold out in lots of places I managed to get 4 shades 20,30,40 and 50. The lighter shades for the face and the darker for bronzing or contouring. So I tried them out properly today I love them!!!!! They are expensive so definitely a treat or great as a present. The powder can be worn straigth onto your skin after moisturising or on top of foundation and then the darker shades to create a healthy glow. Normally I only use translucent powder but really love this new technology of powder.

I opted with foundation first as I have a little pigmentation and wanted more coverage. The great thing aboputbthis powder is that its matt but your skin glows and it looks natural. I moisturised and then added my Estee Lauder Illuminating Serum in the areas I needed most. I buffed in a small amount of liquid foundation as I wanted to keep it really light. As I have a tan I used no 30 with my Mac buffing brush all over and then contoured using the fan brush that comes with the powder to create that sun kissed tan with no 40. Then finished with mascara.

Not the best picture but you get the idea!

Hope you enjoy the post. x
