It’s no secret that I like to splurge on makeup/beauty products, which means I’ve collected quite a few high end beauty products from different brands (and continue to collect more & more). Recently, I’ve been more interested in Chanel and since I just hauled a few more things, I thought I would talk about Chanel beauty products worth the splurge along with ones that aren’t because there are better products on the market for the price!
5 Chanel beauty products worth the splurge and 2 that totally aren’t
Soleil Tan de Chanel— $50
This cream bronzer has been hyped up for the longest time, and was the first Chanel makeup product I ever purchased. I have to say that it is worth the splurge because it really warms up the skin and blends easily. Plus, you get so much product that it’ll last you ages. Though it’s beautiful, there are a couple downsides (womp womp). 1. There’s only one shade so if you’re darker than an NC42 then it won’t really show up on your skin, and 2. It is pretty warm so if you’re very fair it could be too orangey.
I don’t hear much hype about this fluid version, which is essentially a highlighter/bronzer depending on your skin tone. I love this because it adds a warm glow to the skin. Again, you get so much product that it’ll last you a very long time!
Rouge Coco Lipstick— $37
Now I only have onw lipstick from the brand, 458 Marlene, and it’s the most beautiful natural pinky neutral shade. The formula is so lightweight and perfect for spring/summer. It’s moisturizing and keeps your lips nourished and looking natural. And honestly, it’s okay to treat yo self once in a while and splurge on a beautiful lipstick.
These blushes are so silky, smooth, blendable, and pigmented. They’re finely milled so they’re not powdery and don’t apply patchily so your skin will look smooth. If you struggle with blush looking too intense or not blending out easily (and don’t mind splurging), give these a go!
Coco Mademoiselle— $72 – $124
This scent is so gorgeous especially for spring/summer! I love floral perfumes, but wanted something a little different and this has notes of Sicilian oranges, Sicilian Grapefruit, rose and jasmine to name a few. It’s a very fresh, girly scent. I’m not a huge fan of Chanel No. 5 because it’s more musky, woody, and sensual so if you’re looking for something light, floral, and fresh then definitely give it a whiff.
Le Blanc de Chanel— $48
So this is one of the first primers I ever tried, which is why I loved it at the time of this review, but tastes change and now that I’ve tried lots more primers, this Chanel one is not worth the money. By spending almost the same amount of money you can get better illuminating primers like this one from Marc Jacobs, Becca, Dior, or Burberry. Is this Chanel primer horrible or bad? Definitely not. It’s a good primer! But, it’s totally not worth the money because you can find better ones for the price!
I own the limited edition shade 22 Ideale, and it’s a milky pink shade that is sheer so it wears well on top of lipsticks. It’s a pretty gloss, but I’ve tried better ones that are less expensive. I mean, I’ll be honest and tell you I picked it up because of the beautiful packaging and because this shade was limited edition so I just took the plunge. This lip gloss is by no means a bad product, but it’s definitely not worth the splurge because you can find cheaper lip glosses that are more glossy, pigmented, and less sticky. I personally prefer my Buxom and Lorac lip glosses to this one, but because I’m a sucker for packaging I will probably end up purchasing another shade if it really appeals to me ;P.
