I’ve been getting pretty brave with my make up lately, using a lot more colour and trying different things with my teeny tiny eyelids! In the past i’ve found it really difficult to experiment with eye colour due to my eyes being so wee, when they’re open my whole eye lid disappears and you can’t really see anything even when i do have make up on! So when i was lucky enough (and i mean LUCKY) to receive this glorious bag of Chanel goodies containing their new Eyes Collection 2018 and their Èclat et Transparence De Chanel Cruise 2018 Collection. I couldn’t wait to get stuck in and try it all out!
I’ve featured a few of my favourites below, some that i’ve really found have warmed up my face and given me a real summer glow! And yes, although i was gifted these products i absolutely 100% love them, i mean c’mon it’s Chanel – and i thought you’d like to know what’s been on my face recently!
This nifty little palette is the Palette Essentielle Été, look at that red!! This is designed to enhance and accent skin with a magnetic summer glow and that intense red ads a beautiful blush that gives a gorgeous dewy rose glow, and not the sweaty ruby clothes i’ve been most prone to getting this summer. The lipstick is a super glossy and easy to apply. The Au Naturel Le Rouge Crayon De Couleur is my favourite from the range of four colours. It’s the perfect day to night lip colour and whilst you’re wearing all this glow on your face, it compliments it all so so well!
My next two faves have to be these rosy tones! How perfect are these for a summery day? À la Rosée and Ultra Rose are bringing the heat and i absolutely love them! I generally have such a dodgy relationship with my red lipstick as i can never ever get it to stay put. It ends up all over my teeth, round my mouth and none of it actually left on my lips… This stuff is a different story, i found that it really does stay put with out it looking caked on and thick. The colour stays and goes on as true as you see here.
Now perhaps the most special and elegant fake tan i’ve ever owned, the L’eau Tan is a totally unique tanning experience. It’s a bit on the pricy side but if like me you want to avoid any mishaps, i’d be willing to pay good dolla.’ It literally has z e r o fake tan smell, like none, at all. You spray it on, rub it in (still wash your hands, it’s not a miracle worker) it dries almost instantly and gives you a lovely natural glow without looking extreme or patchy or streaky! I am converted, 100%
Now an extra special treat comes in the form of the new Les Eaux De Chanel fragrances. Inspired by three destinations that were dear to Gabrielle Chanel, these new fragrances mark a new stage in Chanel’s history. Bringing three fresh and light new scents telling a story of a true icon. My favourite of the three has to be a toss up between Venise and Biarritz. Which makes sense as i love vanilla and any sea spray scents.
If you haven’t checked out the full range, i highly suggest that you do, it’s absolutely beautiful. Here’s a run down of links and prices for ya!
