Tag, I’m It! 5 Product Makeup FOTD

5 Product Makeup FOTD with Shine Caresse Bonnie, Chanel Destiny

Chanel Destiny, Shine Caresse Bonnie FOTD

 

Hello from Canberra!

I was tagged some time ago (we won’t mention how long because I’m a little ashamed of how backlogged my posts have been) by the lovely Tine to do a 5 Makeup Products post. The challenge is to pick 5 products, and only 5- to create a makeup look. I was surprised at how difficult this was for me to do! Foundation, concealor, eyeshadow primer, one or two neutral eyeshadows, eyeliner, brows, mascara, blush, and a lippy- that’s bare bones for me and that’s already double the number of products for the challenge.

Anyway, we got there in the end. I’m better at being minimalistic and using multitasking products since the last month or so of travelling and living out of a suitcase.

 

1. Le Blush Crème De Chanel- Destiny

2. NARS Sheer Glow in Fiji

3. L’Oreal Shine Caresse in Bonnie

4. MAC eyebrow pencil in Stud.

5. L’Oreal False Lash Telescopic mascara

 

My turn to tag – Taylor from My Lucite Dreams, Kelly from A Blog of Vain Pleasures, Jess from The Belle Lumiere, Larie from Eye Heart It, Karima from Shameless Fripperies. Have fun, ladies!

Le Blush Creme de Chanel Blush #61 Destiny: Review and Swatches

Le Blush Creme de Chanel Blush #61 Destiny: Review and Swatches

For Fall 2013, Chanel released a line of 6 cream blushes called Le Blush Creme De Chanel- you might remember seeing Peter Phillips use the shade Inspiration on the models in the stunning Chanel Fall 2013 RTW show (image below).

After reading rave reviews on the blogosphere, I decided to pick up one of these for myself- in the shade Destiny. It has lived up to the hype, and then some. I have been wearing this pretty much every day since it landed in my hot little hands.

Le Blush Creme de Chanel Blush Destiny

 

Chanel Blush Creme in Destiny is a matte tan-terracotta shade, which takes on a bit of peachiness when blended on my cheeks.  It is quite similar to MAC Gingerly (which is a little more peach), and MUFE HD blush in PDA (which is a touch pinker). Comparison swatches below.

The Blush Cremes are a cream to powder finish and have a soft diffused matte look on the skin, similar to the Make Up For Ever HD Blushes. It can be worn sheer, or built up for a pigmented statement cheek. Lasting power is pretty good for a cream shadow on my skin- around 4hrs of wear before a touch up is required (doesn’t sound like much, but given that most cream blushes last under 2 hours before disappearing on my cheeks, 4hrs is good).

I am such a big fan of this blush. It is so versatile, and gives such a healthy glow with such a great finish.
