A Chanel Treat
Hi my lovelies, are you looking forward to the weekend? I’m loving my time in Singapore with family and friends and if you have Instagram, you can follow my adventures if you add me – my handle is luiyuming. I’ll love to look at your photos, too!
Today’s post is pretty simple and straightforward as it’s a show-and-tell of some Chanel products I hauled over a month ago in Tokyo when I had some vouchers to use up. I did consider other brands like SUQQU and SKII but my heart lies with Chanel when it comes to luxury makeup.
I’ve mentioned the Chanel No.19 Poudre Eau De Parfum here so I won’t go into much detail but I LOVE this. I’d actually planned most of my purchases from Chanel but I got this on impulse because it smelled so amazing.
The overriding theme in my choices this time was I wanted to get only wearable colours for daily use. I have learned from past experience that if I get an unusual shade from a luxury brand, I would simple use it once or twice a year on a special occasion. But I decided that is just a shame (and waste) so I was extremely conservative and no guesses that I would willingly wear these anytime…
The Jous Contraste Powder Blush 99 Rose Petale (bottom right hand corner) is a classic warm pink shade that gives a pretty flush to the cheeks. It instantly gives a lovely glow and the brush is surprisingly quite good for a compact one. I’ve tried using a synthetic fluffy blush brush and it doesn’t pick up much colour at all so you need a smaller rougher brush for quickier and heavier application. I love carrying this around to touch up my blush on the go because the compact looks so chic.
On the bottom left hand corner is the Ombre Essentialle Soft Touch Eyeshadow 45 Safari which is a gorgeous taupe great on its own or easily paired with another neutral colour. I like to prime my eyes with the champagne pink Illusion D’Ombre 82 Emerveille (top right hand corner) as a base and then sweep Safari over my lid – it looks like a subtle look suitable for casual outings or for work.
I actually brought all these products on my previous NYC trip where I did have to get ready in a hurry quite a lot of the time and these Chanel staples were great for a fresh, effortless look.
It’s no secret that I love Chanel for the packaging as much as its contents, if not more, because of the sheer luxury it oozes.
What’s your go-to luxury brand that makes you feel like a princess no matter what?
