CHANEL Rouge Allure #91 Séduisante | Review

Hi lovelies! As you may know by now, Chanel is irresistible. Every time I have saved some money I can't resist expanding my Chanel collection. And yes Chanel is expensive but it's totally worth it! In this post I will review the Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick in Séduisante.

If you own Chanel beauty products, you know their packaging. Super chic and classy. This lipstick has gold packaging and a black holder. It has a click system which is super handy, the lipstick never just falls out.

Séduisante is a light pink. I thought it would look a bit 'Barbie' in combination with my fair skin but it doesn't look like that at all. It's a perfect shade for summer. This lipstick lasts quite long. About 5 hours but you need to touch up after you have something to eat. It can survive a drink. Or two. Or three :)
I have super dry lips so I always used to be scared of lipstick because it can be so drying. I guess that's why I like Chanel lipsticks so much. They are super hydrating even after a couple of hours. The Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks are still my favourite because they are super glossy. But the Rouge Allure lipsticks often look more sophisticated. They apply very smooth and even. You can build up the color intensity with a few more swipes.

So I guess I can say Chanel is still my favourite makeup brand and I will want to keep expanding my collection (sorry not sorry)!

Do you own Rouge Allure lipsticks? Let me know which ones!

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Powder N°01 | Review

Limited edition
€52.90 at Douglas

Hi lovelies! Ugh, Chanel Les Beiges... Where to start... If you own one of the Les Beiges powders, you'll probably agree that it's an amazing product. I have the Les Beiges powder in N°30 (review here) and it's my holy grail. I use it everyday. It gives your face the perfect touch of colour with a nice glow.

The packaging is gorgeous. That's why I love Chanel so much, great products in beautiful packaging. It looks so luxurious. This powder comes with a small brush that fits inside (a small removable cap protects the powder). Most of the times the brushes included with products disappear somewhere in a drawer but not this one. If I take the powder with me, I put the brush back inside and the powder goes back in the velvet pouch. The only downside is that you also have to keep the plastic cap to protect your powder. The brush is nice for touch ups but at home, I use a kabuki brush to apply this powder.

Swatching this powder is actually a bit useless because you really have to see the effect for yourself once it's applied. It's very subtle. This Les Beiges powder has 3 shades : a powder, a blush and a highlighter. You can use them separate but I like to swipe my brush through all three shades. It gives my face a nice glow and makes my skin look less pale. Just like the other Les Beiges powders, this one has a lovely scent. That typical rose, Chanel scent. You can smell it when you apply the powder but it doesn't really linger.

So again, I have fallen in love with a Chanel product. It's my favourite brand and Les Beiges is my favourite powder. If you want this powder, be quick! It's a limited edition item! This powder also comes in N°02 which is a darker version. For people with pale skin like me, this might be a bit too dark. But maybe great as a bronzer kind of powder.

Let me know if you like Les Beiges as much as I do!

Tom Ford Lip Color Sheer in Incorrigible & Pink Dune | Review

Tom Ford Lip Sheer
Limited edition
£36 at Harrods

Hi lovelies! Here's a very exciting review of the limited edition Tom Ford Lip Sheers! I ordered Pink Dune and Incorrigible at the Harrods website. Apparently these lippies aren't available here in Belgium so Harrods was my savior! The shipping costs were a whopping £20 but hey, it's worth it! At first, I ordered Paradiso too but it turned out to be sold out (even though you can still put it in your basket?).

I have a Tom Ford lip color in Indian Rose (review here) and I absolutely love it! So I was very excited to try out these lip sheers!

Even though these lipsticks are called 'sheer', the color payoff can be intensified with more layers. The swatches are made with a few layers. You get a softer look with just one swipe. These lipsticks last a good 4 hours. Incorrigible doesn't really need to be reapplied because it leaves a nice stain.

Pink Dune is a very neutral, nude color. It isn't as pink as I thought it would be. I has a gold shimmer in it which makes it perfect to apply over an other lipstick. But it looks gorgeous on its own too!

Incorrigible isn't really sheer! It's a very inyourface-color, perfect for spring/summer! When it dries, it leaves a beautiful pink stain. These lipsticks feels super smooth and hydrating!

This was quite an expensive purchase for me but I think it's totally worth it. I was very happy with the Harrods customer service too. I mailed them with a few questions and got a personal, kind answer almost immediately. My package arrived after only 3 working days!

Do you own any Tom Ford lip sheers? Let me know!

DIOR Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition Golden Shimmer Powder | Review

€58.50 at Bijenkorf

Hi lovelies! Finally another blogpost! Today I will be talking about something shimmery and gorgeous. Beware! If you don't want to spend money, don't look at the pictures because you will be tempted! I'm telling you this because this powder is stunning. It's my first Dior powder and I love it. I bought this powder in Holland at Bijenkorf. They were so friendly! This powder comes with a small kabuki brush and of course a velvet pouch.

The powder feels heavy, which I like. It feels luxurious. The included kabuki brush is nice but I don't think I will use it very often. It's quite dense and this powder is so intense, you really need to be careful with the application.

I literally took a hundred pictures of this powder and none of them captured it's beauty. The powder really looks like gold.

Even though I'm a pale girl, this powder looks good on me. It gives a nice golden glow. But I'm sure it looks great on darker skin types too. This powder is perfect as a highlighter. But you do have to be careful with the application because it can become too much very quick. On the picture above, you see a one swipe swatch. That's how intense it is. I love this powder! The only downside is that it doesn't really last that long. I'm the kind of girl that touches and rubs her face pretty often without even noticing it. And well, a few swipes on your cheeks and the powder is gone. Meh! But the kabuki brush comes to the rescue! It's perfect for touch ups. If I manage to not touch my face, this powder lasts about 4 hours on me.

Overall, this powder is love at first sight! I would definitely recommend you buy this powder because it's gorgeous! But be fast, it's limited edition!
