Hey Everyone!

I’m always on the hunt for a good sunscreen that does well under make-up. Most sunscreens out there leave a very oily residue and a white overcast when applied which often leaves your foundation slipping and sliding when you apply it over top. I’ve been using Chanel’s newest sunscreen lately – the Chanel Sublimage La Protection UV in SPF 50 and have been loving the light texture that almost disappears when applied. This sunscreen is great under make-up which I appreciate so here’s my review!

The Chanel Sublimage La Protection UV in SPF 50 combines both anti-ageing skincare and sunscreen into one with an advanced formula that targets DNA and the stem cell microenvironment. For anti-ageing action, Chanel has incorporated Vanilla planifolia, vanilla from Madagascar known for its regenerating properties that helps prevent the appearance of wrinkles while liquorice root extract lessens pigmentation and dark spots. It is also known for its creamy texture that turns into a powdery matte finish after application.

Today I’m going to do a review on a classic lipstick – the Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle. I’m an avid fan of Chanel’s Rouge Allure range so I was excited to try out the Rouge Coco range as they have been re-formulated! The Rouge Coco range is known for being a ready to wear and iconic lipstick that melts on your lips with vibrant and lasting color. Chanel sent me two shades – the classic Mademoiselle and red Gabrielle. I’ll be doing a giveaway on one of the lipsticks at the end of this post so stay tuned!

As mentioned, the formula of the Rouge Coco lipsticks are now revamped to be more comfortable and have a melt away texture. Using their Chanel Sensorial Analysis, Make-up Formulation and Physical Expertise laboratories, they have used physical, sensory and emotional characteristics to guide their new formulation. Amongst the 33 developed and 19 tested, 1 formula came out supreme to provide an amazing texture. With a specific wax, lips are now dressed in a softer veil that glides on and melts away. The butter in these lipsticks are also composed of three plant waxes (jojoba, mimosa and sunflower) that provides hydrating and protective properties to the lipstick. Last of all, a polymer film with silicone microbeads fills wrinkles and rough areas to decrease bleeding and feathering. It is truly an amazing formula and one that I have been very impressed with.

Hey Everyone,

There is always that one lipstick in your collection that makes you feel powerful. For me, it’s a lipstick that I’ve always cradled and that is the Chanel Rouge Allure in Super. The Chanel Rouge Allure lipsticks are my ultimate favourite lipsticks. They are smooth on the lips but they feel light enough to be worn everyday. They do not carry a heavy scent yet their pigmentation is for sure something to yell loud and proud for. In fact, I like comparing them to being on Cloud 9. Little do we know that if you are a black haired beau, hot pink lipsticks will look great on you so read on!

Hello!

I’m home, I nearly forgot how good the food is here. Roti Prata, Nasi Lemak, my mom’s cooking, onnomnom beats by far the sandwiches, hot chocolate and..more sandwiches that I had during Uni. It’s good to be back, but with any flight (which I got to ride for the first time the A380, awesome!) comes Duty Free Shopping!

Earlier in Melbourne there was a sale at the Duty Free store in the city with everything being 30% off, I just had to get my hands on some YSL that I’ve been stalking on Sophia’s blog (www.retailtherapy.onsugar.com). I had to try a Rouge Volupte, and I threw in a brow pencil since each cost me about $25 AUD only with the Duty Free and the sale going on. Btw, the sale is no longer…on. Here’s that webcam twitter pic that I posted, but I never got to blog about it, so here we go.
