Chanel Beauty Haul!


Picked up a bunch of Chanel goodies with the gift certs my dad gave us to Sogo and Shin Kong Mitsukoshi Department stores! WOOHOO! Thanks Dad! :)



Seriously how adorable is Chanel packaging.. total sucker for makeup packaging!


Picked up two bottles of my absolute favorite Chanel 210 Lilac Sky.. I often have trouble finding this color.. and this is the ONLY bottle of nail polish I have ever finished using in my ENTIRE life!



Trying out a new Chanel foundation.. this one is suppose to firm and smooth your skin.. ie. wrinkes!! GAH!  I'd always breezed by "wrinkle" skincare products and makeup.. but I'm hoping that if i start preventative measures now it might help in the future.

Have you guys have tried some of the Chanel liquid foundation and if so which foundation is your favorite?



Picked up another one of my fav Double Perfection Foundation.. some of you might remember I picked up one in Paris as well.. but this one interestingly enough comes with a brush!  I've never ever seen that before and I've been purchasing this foundation for roughly 10 years.  This foundation can go on wet or dry.. if you want it wet just add some water to the sponge and it is buildable.


The interesting thing about this compact is that the foundation part actually "pops" out for refills.. however I cannot seem to find the refills anywhere.. I've heard certain country offer the refills.. so whenever and wherever I travel I always try and ask if they have refills.. does anybody know if your particular country sells refills??

I didn't blog one of the items that was in the "family" picture above.. because I truly feel that it deserves its own blog entry!

Here is a peek below!


Stay tuned! :) 

And please please if you know where I can find the Chanel double perfection foundation refills please let me know and also what your favorite Chanel liquid foundation is? I would really love to know!!!

  7. When I used to work at NM, the cosmetics girls recommended me Chanel and Bobbi Brown for foundation. Let me say, I looooove the smell of Chanel. It's so pleasant compared to some other brands. I don't use their makeup anymore, but I used to use the liquid foundation in a fat cylinder bottle. Sorry, the bottle is up in SF, or else I'd let you know. It covers really well, and it's easy to use. I personally thought the Bobbi Brown one looked more natural with good coverage. Anyway, I love your makeup haul! I'm a sucker for good nail polishes...and Chanel is definitely on my list!

  18. Love all the makeup, especially the kit in the last pic. They only seem to sell those travel kits in Asia, cuz I can't seem to find them here in US. I am still kicking myself for not getting two of those when I was in Tokyo, cuz I love the colors.

    You are so right about the refills. I still haven't found them anywhere, and I have asked and asked. I would love to know if you find them!

  28. I love Chanel power but for some reason it make my skin so dry, so I mostly use lipstick and lip gloss from them but not foundation or power. Recently I'm in love with Ariflash Spray Foundation from DIOR, I think you might like it , check it out

  29. Great buys, I love Chanel make-up as well. Almost everything I use is from Chanel, their powders are to dye for. Curious to see more from the last travel 'all-in' package.

  30. Oh.. please share more.. as I wish I could afford this stuff! (jk :) )

  31. I love Chanel liquid bases- their shades suit me the best. Vitalumiere Aqua is my fave :) but my absolute fave is the Le Blanc powder foundation used the same way as your Double Perfection. I know Malaysia & Singapore sells the refills!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh dear I can't help you much in Chanel make up coz I'm a drugstore person. I only have a Chanel lisptick and it's a gift. I haven't used it yet.

    You have such a nice dad to "buy" you Chanel cosmetics.

  34. I enjoy Chanel make up as well, and have a good relationship with the Chanel consultant in Fiji. I've been buying from her for years and she's worked at the Chanel counter for years - works out so well :) I use the Vitalumiere Aqua liquid foundation but my absolute favorite is the Teint Innocence Creme foundation. It is just AMAZING! I'm not sure about refills though, I don't buy them...

  35. *sigh* I was wearing Chanel foundation and powder for a while and getting so many compliments...it is def worth the money. But due to the fact that I have ultra sensitive/acne prone skin the only thing that works on my skin is Bare Essentials Mineral Powder. Maybe one day, when my skin isn't going thru puberty again I can go back to Chanel (lol).

    Have a great day, Lisa :-)
