Collective HAUL : make up, and clothes !

Hi everyone ^_~ Today, i'm going to post a collective haul from these past 2 months :))

well, for this fall/winter time, this knit snood from Promod is gonna be the scarve for me
I have been wearing it most days since I got it !

I like the twist but yet simple. ♥

It also keeps me very warm and is very easy to put on and off ;)

me wearing this snood. Without makeup, I look pretty tired here -_-'

now let's move on on beauty products !

This post is gonna devote to CHANEL brands! :P

I don't know why i'm so into Chanel makeup lately

I never took a close look to Chanel make up before but since I got Chanel the tweed corail blush from my aunt, I guess I just simply fell in love with it
and it dragged me to other Chanel products !

The first lot of them are these two :

LES 4 OMBRES in #Enigma

ROUGE COCO in #37 Rose dentelle

both are from the Fall collection 2010

les 4 ombres #Enigma

les 4 ombres #Enigma : 45 Euros


Rouge COCO #37 Rose dentelle : 28.90 Euros

(comparing with YSL Rouge volupté #2 Sensual Silk)

the colour of Rose dentelle is pretty close to Chintz (from the same collection)

But Chintz is more like a peachy pink while Rose dentelle is a bluish pink

bottom : with flash

I got 20% off .. so instead of paying 74.40 euros,

I got these two items at 59.52 euros which, I think, is a pretty good deal XD (=^_____^=)


FACE : Coffret d'or base, Vitalumiere fluid #20, Benefit high Beam, Guerlain meteorites

EYES : Les 4 ombres #Enigma

CHEEKS : les tissages de chanel #tweed corail

LIPS : Rouge coco #Rose dentelle]

Now the second lot that I actually looked forward to buy then are the CHANEL foundations !

Vitalumiere satin smoothing fluid makeup #20 Clair

I asked for sample of this foundation from the SA at Sephora.
I tried and right away fell in love with this foundation !

I feel like this foundation is perfect for my (super) dry skin.

It doesn't accentuate any dry patches on my face. and it seems to keep my skin hydrating during the day.

and I luvvvvvvv the dewy, glowy finish of this foundation.

It's a light to medium coverage which I can easily build up if I want more coverage.

It doesn't get cakey.

And the most important thing is .. it doesn't break me out !!!!!!

I don't know why's weird though because there's fragance in this foundation
well actually, ALL chanel make up items have this rose smell in them.
But somehow it doesn't break me out even me who has a sensitive skin.

I also got 20% off for this foundation too.. It's sold at 40.70 euros but I saveed like 8 euros .. (I paid just 32.56 exactly) ^___^

this made my day. I love shopping and I love it more when I get them at a great deal ;0

the second CHANEL foundation I bought is :

Vitalumiere AQUA

I had been waiting to try out this new foundation since the beginning of september and I bought it straightaway when it was available in the market lol (which was around at the start of October)

I only found it at Lafayette.. I wonder why Sephora doesn't carry them
(I can't find it on Sephora website either)

The retail price here is 37.50 euros :)

In fact, I wanted to buy the shade #B20 Beige tendre but shamefully.. In France, the shade #B30 Beige sable is the lightest shade available here :(((
I don't understand why.. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

However I have to say that #B30 beige sable is quite a universal shade. Even if it looks darker than my skintone but once set on my face, it doesn't look bad at all,
It evens out my skintone and it gives the natural glow radiance like it promises to!
The consistency of this foundation is ultra light (like its name) and some watery.

Chanel describes the product as once set on the face, it will give the "second skin" glowy radiance finish which I find that all TRUE!

The coverage is pretty light though. Even I can build up the coverage, I find that it doesn't cover much especially blemishes. But the fact that it brings up the glow to the skin, so blemishes look less noticeable.

Yet, I love this product as well as the vitalumiere fluid above. I use the first one on days that I want more coverage and want to have THE perfect skin. And the second one is for everyday ;) It helps awaken my skin from fatigue and my skin still looks really really natural ;)

The one downside of this product is that it doesn't come with a pump! -*-

comparing the 2 textures.

Vitalumiere Fluid seems more like creamy fluide

while Vitalumiere AQUA is more watery and extra light

once blend in

Swatch them on my face
