Chanel L脠VRES SCINTILLANTES GLOSSIMER

One more Chanel.I promise, I’ll review some other brand…tomorrow 馃槈

Chanel’s most popular lip-gloss, Glossimer, is rated 4.3/5 by 418 people on MakeupAlley.聽 In all honesty, I’m not sure I would give it such a high one. No matter how much I adore Chanel and the signature packaging, it surely can not make up for the quality of the product. I find Glossimer way to expensive for the sticky, shimmery-in-a-blah-way聽 texture.聽 However, if you like rather neutral glosses and don’t mind the stickiness, it might be worth a try as there are many nice shades!

I have it in Petit Peche #148, a very sheer subtle pink.

Would I repurchase? Hm… not so sure.

Have you tried Glossimer? 馃檪

The best matte lipstick ever!

Rated 4.8/5 on MUA and an A+ by yours truly, Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet聽 is the best matte lipstick out there. As all makeup junkies are well aware, matte lipsticks are very tricky. Either they’re terribly drying or they don’t leave a proper stain. Not this one though! Chanel RAV is a long lasting matte that feels amazingly smooth and velvety on your lips.聽 It comes in a luxurious black lacquered case.聽 In my experience, no other matte lipstick (be it Bobbi Brown, MAC, Illamasqua…) comes close to Chanel.聽 Check it out!

My preferred shade is #34 (La Raffinee) which suites my fair skin with warm undertones perfectly.

What’s your favorite lipstick?

CHANEL Joues Contraste Blush Review & Swatch

The review is for shade 15, orchid rose.聽 No doubt, Joues Contraste is one of the most popular blushers out there.聽 Does it live up to the hype? I’m not so sure…

On the plus side:

  1. good quality and blendable
  2. small natural hair brush included, along with a nice pouch
  3. silky smooth texture
  4. available in 11 colours (UK)

BUT:

  1. neither matte nor shimmery
  2. can come off as orangey and cakey if not applied with a very light hand
  3. quite pricey
  4. the brush is pretty useless due to its size

Would I repurchase? Don’t think so. :/

Once again, I apologise for such a poor quality of my Xperia pics (I got a good quality camera which I still have to get the hang of!) 馃檪

Chanel Les Essentiels (Fall 2012 Collection)

By the time one hits 30 one is bound to have regrets. I have two (three if you count my ex!), one of which is not becoming a makeup artist.聽 Talking about the things I could change… So I did.聽 Actually, both of them, but the other one would be relevant only if this was a blog on clinical psychotherapy. 馃榾

So, my makeup lessons started this afternoon – it feels good to be a student again, even more so from a teacher’s perspective! Our teacher is a nice lady who used to work for Shiseido in Germany. She is so nice I can’t possibly guess her age! 馃槈

However, I had a look at Chanel‘s new collection today.聽 OMG, LUMI脠RE D’ARTIFICES BEIGES (ILLUMINATING POWDER WITH SHIMMER) is perfection:

Stay posted and don’t forget TO ENTER MY GIVEAWAY!!!

LADIES AND GENTS, WHAT IS ON YOUR WISHLIST? 馃槈

And the nominees are…

So, a聽 few days ago I was nominated for the Beautiful Blogger Award by this interesting blogger: http://bewitchery.wordpress.com/. Check her blog out! 馃槈

The rules for the award are:

  • Post seven interesting things about myself.
  • Nominate other bloggers who IMO deserve the award.
  • Let them know about nomination.

Sooooo…

  1. A few days ago I accidentally shared the blog URL with all my Facebook friends, along with my ex-students. I wasn’t too happy about it, but as it turns out I gained quite a few followers 馃榾
  2. For the aforementioned reason this blog is and will mostly if not exclusively聽 be focussed on make-up, not so much on sex, I’m afraid!
  3. I’m a proper snob when it comes to two things – education and make-up. A Cambridge degree should come in a Chanel box, as far as I’m concerned!
  4. I’m at my sexiest at airports. I’m pretty sure I’ve been bitten by a travel bug years ago.聽 And a certain weakness for pilots and flight attendants doesn’t help either.
  5. I have 2 and a half piercings. Yes, 2 and a half.
  6. I spent a part of my childhood in Japan, at the time of聽 the Great Hanshin Earthquake in 1995.聽 The thing I clearly remember is trying to keep my Chanel No19 in one piece. Mind you, I was 12 and the city was pretty much destroyed. Not my precious little bottle though.
  7. I’m a sucker for everything British…apart from fish & chips.聽

There are quite a few blogs I follow and adore…here is a list of 10 I can think of at the moment:

  1. A Beauty Junkie in London
  2. Heather Poole
  3. British Beauty Blogger
  4. Vex in the City
  5. Mademoiselle Snow
  6. Thoughts in Little Boxes
  7. KofyKat
  8. cupcakesakura
  9. Sweetjellybean
  10. Peach Milk Tea
