Chanel Makeup Review

Oops... I did it again. I spent too much money on makeup. #SorryNotSorry

If you read one of my last wish lists, you'll know that I was planning on purchasing these two Chanel products for a while. I don't think I was planning on buying both at the same time, BUT the time when I had just joined the rewards debit program from Nordstrom in which I had to spend $100 or more for a $20 cash back. Hence, Chanel counter... BINGO! (My wallet is still mad at me)

Here's my mini haul/ review:

1. Chanel Vitaloumier Aqua - I went to the Chanel counter just to buy Soleil Tan De Chanel but that obviously didn't happen. Leslie, the awesome lady at Nordstrom San Juan's counter told me to give this lightweight base a try and I couldn't help to be impressed by the flawless and natural finish. I've been using this instead of my beloved Tarte BB Tinted Treatment 12-Hour Primer and I can't believe I like it even more. I thought it wouldn't work on Puerto Rico's weather (which has been in the high 80's lately), but it's true what they say. It does look like your skin, but better. I've been using it with Maybelline's Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder and it's impressive that even though this foundation has a very luminous finish, it has great staying power. 

2. Soleil Tan de Chanel - As usual, I am going to be really honest here. It was REALLY hard for me to mess up this beautiful design with a stippling brush. I mean, look at it! And the packaging deserves a post on its own. How can one resist?? But lets cut to the chase: This is the best way to to contour your face, specially if you don't like that harsh looking contouring that makes you look like you are someone else. It has a little bit of shimmer but you can't see it once its on your face. It just makes you look glowy. Definetely worth the $48 price tag (ouch!).  

Final verdict: These are both worth the splurge! Do you wear Chanel makeup? Let me know what other products to try! I'll start saving up... I think I'm hooked. :)
