On to the Le Blanc de Chanel Illuminating Base..I actually haven't used this that much yet. I got it a couple weeks ago but so far only tried it maybe 3 times. I didn't feel it made a huge difference to my skin or foundation. It is kind of difficult to spread evenly though so that's why I haven't really been using it but I will try more before giving it a proper review. It has a nice scent though.
The DiorShow Waterproof Eyeliner - this is now my favourite eyeliner. It's easy to apply, very long lasting and works great with the Sigma Pencil brush (smudges out very nicely). The only downside is it seems to not last me very long. I go through any eyeliner really quickly anyway but I found with this one, I use it up the quickest.
This is my first eyeshadow purchase from Chanel..I really love it. It is the Chanel Les 4 Ombres - Tisse Gabrielle. So far I mostly use the cream, silver/grey and black shades. Purple doesn't look that good on me I think. The shades blend together really nicely and are really long lasting.
A quick review:
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Oil-Free Cleanser: this is my second one. It's a really nice cleanser..gentle on the skin but doesn't remove makeup so I always have to be sure to remove it all first with another makeup remover.
Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque: the first at-home masque I ever purchased..I've done masques before at facials but never got one for home because I was always too lazy and was afraid my skin was too sensitive for most masques anyway. I decided to try this one and I really love it. It smells really good, feels really gentle and refreshing on the skin and does brighten up my skin every time I use it. It's probably my favourite product from Kiehl's I've tried so far.
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream: before this moisturizer, I was using their oil-free gel cream (same line as my cleanser) but during the winter that one is definitely not moisturizing enough. I got this one a week and a half ago and have been using it every day. It definitely made an improvement so far.
Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado: whenever my mom got me new skincare stuff before, she'd always get me eye cream as well but it was one of the products I rarely used as I was lazy and just put moisturizer over my eye areas as well in one go, when applying it to my face. I never saw the point of having a different cream for the eyes. Actually I still kind of don't lol..but figured it must have a good use so decided to get this one to try. So far, it kind of stings my eyes which is not helping in my attempt to start using eye cream...but the sales associate told me to keep trying a few more weeks to see if it gets better. On the topic of products I'm too lazy to use, I also skip the "toner" step a lot (hence the reason why I don't have a toner purchased here)..I actually threw away a full/unopened bottle of Laneige toner recently as I never used it and it expired =\ I also still have the Kiehl's one I purchased several months ago..used maybe 10 times total? I don't know if it makes much of a different if I use it or not, and I found it actually dries out my skin a bit so I stopped using it. I know this post is getting super long now and if anyone is still reading at this point...what's your opinion of this? (I am asking those of you who do use the eye cream and toner and if you think there is an actual benefit) Skincare is really tricky and difficult to test the effectiveness of products..for each product you have to use it for at least a month to see results anyway (if any) but it all happens so gradually you won't really know if it was the cause of the product or if it would've happened even if you didn't use it.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum: back then, I used to use an Estee Lauder day serum and an Estee Lauder night serum. I went through so many of these! (see the old post I linked to earlier in this post..) Now, since I'm purchasing my own skincare and this is ridiculously expensive ($115? I think..don't remember) I decided to just get a night time one. Right before this, I used the Kiehl's clearly corrective serum which I felt made no difference for me. So I went back to Estee Lauder as I know they make the best serums. To be honest I am not sure if serums make a difference for me if I use them or not. I always just get them though as they all have cute bottles.
