Hope you are all doing really well and are having a good week so far? Today, I had a day off and decided to go shopping with my dad and boyfriend and as always I had a fantastic time and a few cheeky splurges! I went to John Lewis thinking I would spend around £30 on a new Bobbi Brown foundation, but as it happened I spent a heck of a lot more at Chanel and didn't even get to Bobbi Brown. I have been wearing Chanel make-up since I was 16, so it definitely has a bit of a gravitational pull on me haha. I have had a pretty tough couple of weeks and have also had the pressure of preparing for a major worldwide event at work. So, it was really nice to go for lunch with my dad and boyfriend and to get a few treats for myself! I hope you enjoy this post and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section down below. Also, don't forget to check out my NEOM giveaway, which will be linked at the bottom of this post. I have collaborated with NEOM to offer my lovely followers a chance to win a relaxing ritual worth £70! which I'm sure would be of interest to a few of you with the general stresses of daily life haha! Anyway, I will get into this post before I start to ramble :)
Vitalumiere Loose Powder Foundation ( With Mini Kabuki SPF15) £55.00
I'm sure I'm not alone when it comes to admiring the beauty of every single Chanel marketing campaign, I mean just take a look at this link and you will see what I mean! With the make-up looking oh so flawless on the lovely model, of course it made me a little curious when I stumbled across this new foundation by Chanel. It all started with me wanting a new lipstick, as I was actually heading to Bobbi Brown for a new foundation (I never got there though) after making friends with the lovely make-up artist "Jaz" I couldn't wait to find out more about Chanel's latest offerings. I have never tried a powder foundation before, but with my love for Vitalumiere Aqua, I decided to give in in to my beauty urges and give it a go! I haven't properly tried it yet apart from at the counter (where it looked lovely) so I will report back to you on how I am getting along with it in the next few weeks. This new foundation from Chanel is described as a "Light Box" and uses a new generation of high definition-light pigments to completely flatter the complexion. It also comes with a fantastic Kabuki brush and the added bonus of having an SPF of 15. It can also be used over your foundation to add an extra bit of coverage, whilst remaining natural and acting as a finishing powder.
Chanel Joues Contraste Blush #80 Jersey £31.00
Jersey was another product I wasn't supposed to by, but seeing as I was sat next to it whilst having my make-up done I couldn't help but take a closer look. I was really intrigued by its unique colour and can only describe it as a pretty "Rose Wood" type shade, which looks stunning on. It's natural, but definitely has a contour type feeling to it and you can definitely see its on your skin. I own a few of these blusher's and find they are either super bright or quite sheer and for once this shade is a nice "in between" that might be worth adding to your collection. I'm super excited about trying this blush and will update you lovelies as soon as I can!
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #89 Satisfaction £25.00
This was the only product I was supposed to walk away from whilst visiting the Chanel counter, as I'm always on the market for a new lippie, especially a Rouge Coco Shine. Since discovering my favourite shade of all time "Evasion" had been discontinued.. I have been on a bit of a mission to find something similar. I recently posted about another recent Rouge Coco shine purchase, which you can find here.. but despite being a beautiful shade (which I love an wear) It wasn't quite what I was after as my replacement for Evasion. Satisfaction is a lovely "Peachy Nude" let me know if you love Peachy Nudes as much as I do haha! I tried it on at the counter and really liked how it looked on my lips and it didn't wash me out, which was a bonus. Nudes can be tough, but Satisfaction has just enough Peach in it to make it a gorgeous wearable shade (Review to follow soon)
Chanel Stylo Yeux Long Lasting Eyeliner #83 Cassis £19.00
I finished one of these eyeliner's about two months ago and didn't re-purchase straight away, as I wanted to find a cheaper alternative. However, I didn't really find anything that worked as well for me.. so when I went to the Chanel counter today I decided I would repurchase. The normal shade I would go for would typically be a Brown or Black, but both colours were out of stock. Jaz (the amazing make-up artist) decided to try Cassis on me, which is a really deep Purple/Plum shade, as she explained it would look amazing against my Green eyes. She was definitely right and I was happy to walk away with it, as it definitely made my eyes pop without looking un-natural for an everyday look. I'm excited to work with this product more and will let you know my thoughts!
I hope you have enjoyed this haul lovelies and I would love to know your thoughts in the comments section down below. I wasn't quite expecting to walking away with this much make-up from Chanel, but I'm over the moon with my new goodies. I also made a few other purchases, which I will be posting about soon. I will also have individual reviews of the products from this post coming soon, but I'm sure you can understand I just wanted to snap some quick pictures and get it up on the blog haha! I wanted to make sure you seen it looking all pretty and smudge free, as I'm sure I will be using it first thing tomorrow haha.
