Tuesday Beauty

Recently, I was looking for a new foundation, and I had heard a lot of positive things about Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua. It is a light "skin perfecting makeup sunscreen" with SPF 15. The coverage is buildable as well. I find that sometimes with foundation if you buy it and don't love it, it lasts forever and you are stuck with a product you'd rather not own. To avoid that, I went to Nordstrom where they will give you a sample of makeup to take home and try. When they applied this in the store, the layered it over the Hydra Beauty Serum and Hydra Beauty Gel Creme. My skin felt like a dream. I also really liked the look and feel of the foundation. But, I wanted to give it a few tries before I committed. I did end up going back to buy the full sized product, and I love it. I also love the Poudre Universelle Compate for touch ups throughout the day. And, my newest favorite is the Levres Scintillantes Lip Gloss in Giggle, which is a slightly darker shade than my natural lip color. Of course, it's undeniable that when you are toting around anything Chanel, you feel pretty bad ass. Now, I'd love to add that serum and creme (and the eye gel, too!) to my daily routine, but I wasn't yet ready to make that investment! There's always Christmas...

I highly recommend trying out options at Nordstrom if you are purchasing foundation. I also tried the Bobbi Brown Longwear foundation and really liked that one as well. I might even go back for that to keep on hand for when I want a bit more coverage. Nordstrom will also let you return the product if you are dissatisfied...even if you've used it! What service! So, Chanel makeup is my new bag. I'm fancy like that.
