Re: Chanel Updates

Oooohh pretty! Thanks for posting! Do you have a picture of the palette?

Re: Chanel Updates

Can someone help me figure out if the Chanel Mediterranee would be more of an illuminating powder or bronzer if I'm an light-medium to medium?

Re: Chanel Updates

Anny if it helps I wear the lightest shade in MJ genius gel. I purchased this bronzer and by no way does it show up as orange - which is hard for me to find so I was excited to get this. I originally tried using this as a contour (didn't work) it does give me a beautiful sun kissed look (with a light hand) without looking garish. The formula is fantastic BTW. Going off if you're medium/light skin tone I would say it would be more of a bronzer. I highly recommend this product, but I don't think it would work on deeper skin tones. Just my opinion - nordies does have a good return policy if all else fails!

Re: Chanel Updates

I'll give my two cents on it.  I am medium skin tone and it did not work for me at all.  When I applied it to my cheeks (I didn't wear any other blush since I wanted to see how it would look alone) it made me look like I was wearing 2 different shades of foundation.  It was so yellowy orange on me.  So it went back.  I suggest you go to the store without blush or highlighter on and have an SA apply it on you.  Then you can see if you like it or not.  

Re: Chanel Updates

Hi Anny--this works as a light bronzer for me but I can probably wear it lightly all over. I love that the shimmer is very subtle and you can't see it in sunlight. It's a beautiful glow. I love it and bought it!

 

I went to the Nordstrom event this weekend and had my make up done at the Chanel counter. He used it as a bronzer on me and then put on some blush as well. I'm wearing 2 of the cream eyeshadow sticks and the orange lipstick from the summer collection.

(sorry for bad pics, they weren't taken to be shared since I was tired but I thought it would be helpful)

Re: Chanel Updates

I don't think they are bad pictures of you. You look lovely but stop enabling me lol. I'm trying to recover from Tom Ford summer collection. Smiley Happy

Re: Chanel Updates

lol I think you need this one blackkitty. Go try it in the store. 

I also bought 2 of the cream eyeshadow sticks :Laurier Rose  (wearing it in the pics above) and Azulejo. Both are soo beautiful! I read that someone used the blue powder from TF Midnight sea on top of Azulejo and that it was gorgeous so I had to buy it to see for my self. lol

Re: Chanel Updates

Thanks for posting all your pics- you look gorgeous! I got Companade. Going to unbox and use it today. They used it on my at the Chanel event last week. 

Re: Chanel Updates

I bought the Laurier Rose - its soooo gorgeous! Also I think you look very pretty in your pics Smiley Happy

Re: Chanel Updates

I love the Orchidee eyeliner and laurier rose eyeshadow. The eyeshadow stayed on abt 12 hrs no creasing on my oily eyelids Smiley Very Happy

Re: Chanel Updates

Darn it Kate. You and Greenchilli are killing me Smiley Wink They are beautiful aren't they. I'm trying to skip the Chanel bronzer with the hope that Guerlain will release the Asia exclusive highlighter Smiley Sad 

Re: Chanel Updates

But they are two different things! You can have both! The Chanel will work as a bronzer for you and the Poudre de Soie will be a perfect highlighter to compliment it. I have been asking all the Guerlain reps I see about the highlighter and no one knows anything about it here Smiley Sad

If it is released in North America, I'm picking one up too!

Re: Chanel Updates

Blackkitty, the Chanel illuminator is worth trying out.  I highly recommend testing it at the counter.  I quite like it because it has no shimmer and is just a glow.  I think it would flatter medium skin tones a lot!

Re: Chanel Updates

Annypoo,I think the Chanel Mediterranee would be a natural bronzer on you (subtle).  Not to be confused with a contouring powder...but for a sunkissed glow.

Re: Chanel Updates

Thanks greenchilli! Trying to decide by tonight if I should order from Saks Smiley Tongue

Re: Chanel Updates

I just bought the Chanel Mediterranee LE Illuminator during Nordies 3X period.  My SA (that works at NARS) highly recommended it.  Today is the second day that I have used it.  I really like it.

 

Picture outdoors - not very sunny.

Swatch on my arm.  I have swatched it right in the center of the picture (heavy swatch). 

20150512_104936.jpg

 On me (medium/deep), it just gives a bit of luminosity.  This has no shimmer, it has a glow.  I used it all over my face.  I think on deeper skin tones, it could also work well on the high points of the face - swatching is recommended.  On light tones it would make a good bronzer that looks natural.

 

If you swatch it heavily, some pinkness shows through (certainly not orange or yellow).  So I would describe this powder as bronze and not golden. 

 

It is incredibly subtle on me.  I see an "effect" - like healthy skin, but I doubt anybody would ask what highlighter I was wearing. 

Re: Chanel Updates

Saks has Les Beiges 2015 up on the site and it's 16% off Ebates from Saks + if you have a Saks card you should have an email promo code : ) woo hoo, time to shop!

Re: Chanel Updates

Today I tested out this purple beauty the Stylo Eyeshadow stick from the Summer collection…and I learned that Les Beiges Summer has 'left the factory and shipped' so it could be in stores very soon!Unknown-2.jpeg

Re: Chanel Updates
