Top 5 Makeup Products: Chanel, Lancome and Korres

This was supposed to be a guest post for one blog which was never published so I though I’d share it here. I had to pick 5 must-have products that I can’t live without.  I’ve written this post in June but I still agree with everything that I wrote even if it was month ago.  Only my under-eye concealer preferences are changing from time to time.

1. Lancome Hypnose mascara

Unfortunately my natural lashes are thin and quite short so I can’t live without a good mascara. Hypnose by Lancome works miracles for me. Sometimes I even get asked if I am wearing false lashes!

2. Chanel Glossimer in Mica

Glossimers are my favourite glosses of all times. I absolutely love the formulation of this lip gloss which is pretty thick and some may even find it sticky. I have a lot of different shades but Mica, a light pink with shimmer, is my must have.

3. Lancome Le Crayon Khol in Brun Noir

September Ins and Outs

This post was inspired by the lovely Dara from Belle du Jour as I just read her INS and OUTS so I will share mine.

INS


Deep & dark purple and green shades for eyes and nails.

Fall! I just love the weather and the beautiful landscapes. Sometimes I wish I could just walk in the park instead or working!

These days I love using minimum makeup.

Some of my close friends are having their BDays in October, would love to do something special for them (not yet sure what).

Consents of my brothers band, I love their music.

More and more makeovers. I love creating looks for others and am getting better.

New episodes of Gossip Girl (how pathetic)

OUTS

New Chanel Vitalumière Aqua Foundation

Do you remember the beautiful Chanel looks created for their Resort collection? The skin looked very natural and fresh! And the foundation that was used is called Vitalumière Aqua Foundation.

I really love the name of it: Vitalumiere Aqua, Ultra-Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 and I am sure that it will be an amazing product so can’t wait to try it! Sounds like a perfect foundation for dry skin.

The shades that will be available:

Want It: Chanel SoHo Collection

It’s a always a pleasure to see a new collection by Chanel.

So here is the new SoHo collection. This collection is all about a ” a very special kind of New York woman. She is innocent, but she has a steely determination that fuels the city” .  In this collection you can see both soft pink for lips and dark metallic shades for nails plus a SoHo palette and a Stupendous quad.

Here is Peter Philips himself  talking about the collection. And I like how he describes it: “Stupendous, Steel, Strong, Stunning, Stunt, Star: strong names that reflect the candance, the musical rhythm, the heartbeat of SoHo”

Collection includes:

The Soho de Chanel Palette

The Quadra Eye Shadow Palette

  • Stupendous (beige, brown, prune and steel)

Le Vernis

  • Strong
