I only picked up three items from this collection and I’m totally loving some of them so far.
I know Chanel has released another collection since this one came out – I guess they are on the same marketing strategy as MAC. But I still wanted to put out my review on these items. Chanel items come at a luxe price but only 2 of these items are in my book, luxurious. The other is a hot mess.
I’ve used the Joues Contraste blush in Alezane; and the lipstick, Chanel Coco Rouge in Melancolie, non-stop since I bought them. The blush has just the right amount of shimmer and colour to make it perfect for casual day looks. It’s bronzey in colour and applies very evenly on my skin. And the Coco Rouge Shine is so moisturizing and leaves my lips super soft. It’s a great peachy nude with very little shimmer. These two and a very light eyeshadow/liner combo and I’m good for the day.
Now, as for the eyeshadow – Chanel in Illusion D’Ombre New Moon. Lord. I’ve only used this twice and I will need Jesus to try it again. Can you say glitter bomb fall out. It’s extremely sparkly, and I was hoping that it would stick to my skin just fine. WRONG! Now, at 38, I’m beyond the appropriate age group of having a face full of glitter – which for the record is 9. But that’s exactly the way I looked by the end of the night – glitter everywhere. Primer doesn’t make it stick. Setting spray didn’t help it. Disaster. Praying I can find the receipt so I can’t get my money back soon. I don’t mind paying high-end prices for products, but then I expect high-end quality.
Edit* I found the receipt! New Moon will definitely make its way back to Saks. And all items were purchased with my own money!
What new Fall 2015 products are you loving lately? What are you taking back to the stores? I know I need to hurry up and buy the Holiday collections, but doesn’t it seem too early to be thinking of the holidays??
Thanks for stopping by.
