Chanel Foundation For Women of all colors - Perfection Luminere



Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Soft Matte Fluid Makeup SPF15 - # 100 Soft Honey - Chanel - Complexion - Mat Lumiere Long Lasting Soft Matte Fluid Makeup SPF15 - 30ml/1oz




Finally!  Chanel one of the most venerable fashion and beauty houses in the world has launched a line for foundations for women of color. I was able to get a demonstration and makeover and it was well worth my time.

The Foundation is Perfection Luminere, long wearing flawless fluid makeupLuminere Foundation. The line has 23 shades for women from the very fair to very dark. It has SPF 10 which is a wonderful plus and it lasts up to 13 hours.

My Chanel artist applied my foundation with a foundation brush and advised me to apply and blend the foundation in  immediately in the area of application. Since it is long wearing blending the foundation in immediately is important in order to avoid spots if it dries. Pre foundation application, we discussed my skincare and makeup regimen and needs based on my skin type (normal to dry ). She applied the fluid moisturizer and the Ultra Correction Line Repair Ultra Correction Line Repair   anti wrinkle eye creme ( I am a bit obsessed with eye cremes because of dark circles). She applied the eye cream pressing it gently into the eye area,  I later purchased the creme, it felt wonderful on my eyes and I now use her technique for application, it feels like a special eye treat every time.
She tried 3 shades on my jawline and we decided on #114 Ambre. My request was for a clean, flawless but natural finish. This foundation has the patented Chanel Perfect Light Control Complex. Ambre  was exactly as I requested, it was natural and  flawless and I can now attest lasts all day. She applied a beautiful trio of shages on my eyes, added blush to my cheeks and the finished look was gorgeous.  I looked ready for a day or night scenario, clean, pretty but natural. If applied in heavier amounts the look is finished but semi- matte, lighter application results glorious sheen but still clean and finished.

Please find links below for other great products  I discovered during my makeover.   These will quickly become indispensable during your daily beauty routine, all from Chanel.

Crayon Sourcils- Subtle but gets your brows in super shape ( just a touch and brush)


Joues Contraste Blush - in 55 in Love - Classy with a hint of glitter.


Illusion D Ombre Eyeshadow- Amazing color for the entire eye or a highlighter, great for day and night. One of the best colors of any skin tone I have used in ages.
The eyeshadow was named one of the best in Allure Beauty Best issue September 2011.

Please try the Intense mascara it does not flake and clump!

Head to your nearest stockist and receive a gift with during launch time this month.  I usually alternate between Mac Skin and Body Foundation or Laura Mercier Oil Free but Chanel was just added to my regular rotation.

Happy Shopping!

Stampede at my local Target for Missoni. Score one for Target for getting them into the store!

I thought I was early..... I wanted to get a good look at the Missoni Line for Target and post an update on my blog, well.... I was  very late. The clothing racks were cleared out, all of the home items were gone, no bags, no luggage nothing. Women were walking around the store some looking a bit sheepish with shopping carts piled high with anything......I mean everything and anything.
It was shocking to see this much consumption during at such a difficult time in our economy but it also meant that certain segments of the population are not feeling any effects of the recession, it was shocking. Or to be fair,  it could also mean that so many people are out of work that sellign Missoni online to people all over the world is a great prospect.
I got my lip gloss and proceeded to the cash register where I was sandwiched between many women with carpets, rugs, boxes, clothing all Missoni.
The cashier told me that a lot of women told her that they would be selling their goods on EBAY, well there will be lots of choice on EBAY folks and I suspect that there will be lots of returns too, either because of very angry spouses or just plain old reality. It is a jolt though to learn that while some people are working to pay bills and keep their children on the straight and narrow other people out there are just having splurges at Target.
Some reality.

Happy Shopping folks!
