Swatches | Chanel Le Tient Ultra Tenue Foundation | Video Demo

Chanel Le Tient Ultra Tenue Foundation

I was searching for a new foundation so I decided to research Youtube and see what I could find that was lightweight. I picked the Chanel Le Tient Ultra Tenue foundation in 121 Caramel because most video reviewers that I watched said it was very lightweight and soft on the skin. I don't like a full coverage or really thick foundation because it just slides off due to the fact that i'm in menopause and could break out in a sweat at any given moment! So I normally don't wear a lot of foundations because of that and also that I'm retired and have no reason to wear it daily. But I like how my skin looks in photographs when i'm doing fashion post so I thought it was worth the investment.

Fall Makeup Swatches | YSL Scandal Palette | Chanel | Video

I'm finally getting into that Autumn vibe with a few items from the new YSL Couture Line and from Chanel.  I have to say that both the eyeshadows from Chanel's fall line sold out quickly so I was only able to get my hands on one which was Rouge Noir, the other one New Moon is a part of their permanent line so I picked that up as well.

Velvety smooth and ooh so soft on the lips is the trademark of Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour and the Chanel Emilienne Rouge Coco Lip Colour is no exception.  Perfectly poised for Spring this colour was a must have addition to my ever growing lipstick collection

Swatches ~ Chanel #183 Tocade Lip Glossmer

Chanel #183 Tocade Glossmer

I picked up this Chanel #183 Tocade Lip Glossmer at my local Chanel counter while browsing my favorite pasttime.... makeup.  This is really a pretty rose color for Spring, I thought it would compliment most of the lighter colors that I wear during the Spring/Summer months.

Swatches ~ Chanel Rouge Allure Retractable Lip Gloss in #18 Seduction

Chanel Rouge Allure Retractable Lip Gloss in #18 Seduction

Chanel has a new line of Rouge Allure retractable lip gloss colors that are amazingly beautiful.  I stopped by to swatch a few and walked away with the  Chanel Rouge Allure Retractable Lip Gloss in #18 Seduction.  I thought looked amazing for spring. These lip glosses are in a very beautiful case with a gold push top.  One push and it springs up and gives you the right amount of product to apply on both top and bottom lip so that you aren't wasting any product.

Chanel  Glossimer Lip Gloss 149 Nakkar
The Chanel Levres Glossimer Lip Gloss in Nakar 149 is a watermelon pink color with gold micro-shimmers.  It's the perfect lip gloss to compliment a subtle natural look.  The gold micro-shimmers gives your lips just a little hint of sparkle to notice them.

Swatches ~ Chanel 2013 Spring Collection Illuminating Powder

Chanel 2013 Spring Collection Illuminating Powder
 I couldn't resist this beautiful illuminating powder that came out in the Chanel Spring Collection.  From the moment I laid eyes on it I knew I had to have it!  I would describe this as a very beautiful golden illuminator with just a hint of rose undertones.

Beauty ~ Chanel Mousse Douceur Foaming Mousse Cleanser

Chanel Mousse Douceur Foaming Mousse Cleanser
I received a sample of this product when I stopped by the Chanel counter at Macy's about a month ago when I purchased some powder foundation reviewed here.  
That little sample went such a long way, I must have used it for a week with my Clarisonic.  Just a little dab goes such a long way and how it made my skin feel was incredible.

I had been experiencing a little dryness on my forehead which isn't normal for me because I have oily skin.  But the older I get (i'm approaching 54yrs) my skin is becoming dryer in certain areas.  While using the sample I noticed how smooth my skin appeared and I became so addicted that I was using that little sample morning and night.

Swatches ~ Chanel Double Perfection Lumiere Powder Foundation / Brown Skin

Chanel Foundation

I was at my local Macy's picking up a few things and I just happened to stop by the Chanel counter. I asked the SA what she thought about the Chanel Double Perfection Lumiere Powder Foundations and if she could give me a match.  She was more than happy to work with me and we picked this very beautiful color in #74 Ambre as a match.

Swatches ~ Chanel Lucky Strikes Iridescent Highlight Powder

Chanel Lucky Strikes Irridescent Highlight Powder
By far, the  Chanel Lucky Strikes Iridescent Highlight Powder (limited edition) is one of the most beautiful highlight powders for cheeks I've ever seen.  It comes in a range of three colors from rose to gold.  When I swatched it, the rose was more prominent on my skin tone and i'm very pleased with the results.  This highligher isn't cheap and although I paid a hefty price, it's well worth the money and a beautiful addition to my highlighter collection! Check out more Chanel permanent highlighters here.

Beauty ~ Mac 226 Limited Edition Crease Brush

Mac 226 Crease Brush vs. Chanel 12 Crease Brush
I have to admit I went out and purchased this Mac 226 limited edition crease brush from my local Mac Pro Store because I got caught up in all the hype. I haven't used it yet so I can't really give an honest comparison. But I can compare it in terms of looks instead of performance to the Chanel 12 crease brush that i've been using for the past 2yrs.
