My Favorite Chanel Products At The Moment


There are two items from Chanel that I am in LOVE with currently. I cannot say enough about them except go, no run to your Chanel counter to sample these products.

Chanel Natural Loose Powder in 47 Feerie

This powder is such a beautiful shimmery puff of pink! It is a soft pink powder that I use all over my skin with unbelievable shimmer. The flecks in the powder are just amazing. I have several powders similar by different cosmetic lines but in my opinion the size and the reflection of the flecks in this powder is outstanding! It comes with a puff but I prefer to use a powder brush to apply to my face, neck, décolletage and sometimes even my shoulders.

 Sheer Illuminating Fluid in Sunkissed

This is such a pretty illuminating product. It is a illuminating bronzer with a slight hint of pink in it not an orange tone as other have, this is a bronzy pink. I love the way the sun/light reflects off the fluid. You can apply it over your foundation on your cheeks for the highlight illuminated effect on the cheeks or you can mix a small amount into your foundation. I personally mix some of the product into my foundation for an all over illuminating bronzing effect. It gives you some color but is NOT a self tanner, it gives your skin a beachy sunkissed glow! This product is soo gorgeous! Last week a customer told me I had such a beautiful glow to my face, I had a Jennifer Lopez glow. WOW!!!! I never heard that one before and thought how sweet! Part of my glow was because of this product.!

It is extremely hard to take pictures of these two items because you just have to see the color, shimmer and sunkissed looks with your natural eye. Visit your Chanel counter soon to check these out! PS- most Chanel counters will also throw in some samples in your bag of various items for you to enjoy! Happy Shopping!

See ya Chanel counter until your Summer 2012 collection hits your counter! xoxo

Spring is in the Air in Chicago

So today’s weather was amazing! With the warm weather it definitely makes me want to go out and get a mani/pedi! I also want that super illuminated rich glow! Today I was super busy but tomorrow I’m only working a half day and the other half day shopping for sandals and some Spring collections by Chanel, Dior & Bobbi Brown!

I have a ton of items that I want to blog about but I just don’t want to make it soo random. Tomorrow’s blog will either be about my most favorite polishes at the moment or Chanel.

Macy’s is having some sale that starts tomorrow that gives us an additional 10% off so that’s why I waited to make any additional purchases.

Within the next week I will be blogging about additional skin care items, hair products and Urban Decay.

I also,  want to talk foundations and mascara’s! If you have any questions or want me to review a certain product or category please let me know, I do these blogs for you.

Here’s to another fabulous day tomorrow and I can’t wait to post tomorrow’s blog!

Also, please don’t forget to subscribe to my blog so that you are notified when a new blog is posted!

Skin Care

Today I am going to review two products that I absolutely love and cannot live without! Both are products from Lancome, now many of you know I am working for Lancome however, I am reviewing these products because I have tried them myself and I see the difference in my skin.

A little skin care background first, those of you close to me know that I have always used Estee Lauder since my teens years for skin care. Why consider using different products since Estee Lauder worked for me? Why fix something that’s not broke you say? Well, we can always use improvements in every aspect of our lives right? That includes my skin care!

Let me introduce to you the first amazing product!


A skincare that boosts the activity of genes and stimulates the production of youth proteins. Visibly younger skin in just 7 days. Skin looks as if lit from within and radiant. Its youthful quality returns: cushiony soft and velvety to the touch.

A true skincare innovation with 7 worldwide patents pending, Génifique is the foundation of every woman’s skincare at any age or for any skin concern. It won 22 beauty awards in 2011 and is one of Dr. Oz’s top beauty products!

I saw a difference within one full week, I actually started using Genifique before Visionnaire. My skin has a glow and looks younger to me, I have received soo many compliments on my skin within the last month it is unbelievable! Last week a customer told me I had a glow, I had a Jennifer Lopez glow! How nice of her, that for sure is a new one, never heard that before!

The next amazing product I cannot live without!


Visionnaire is an advanced skin-correcting serum re-creates the look of more beautiful skin without damage or irritation. Its new breakthrough formula prompts skin to naturally correct the appearance of wrinkles, pores, and uneven texture. It feels very light and velvety to the touch, smells wonderful, and is the color of mother of pearl.

I saw a visible difference in just 3 days! I have red on the apples of my cheeks due to years and years of tanning with no SPF. Within 3 days of using Visionnaire I saw a huge difference and now the apples of my cheeks are slightly pink and I have only been using the product for 3 ½ weeks.

Quick recap, Genifique is a skin enhancer and Visionnaire is a skin corrector. They can be used together as they compliment each other. If you decide to use both, use Genifique in the AM after you cleanse and tone and before you moisturize. Use Visionnaire in the PM after you cleanse and tone and before you moisturize.

Keep in mind these products are serums and do NOT provide any SPF, the SPF should  come from your moisturizer and foundation!

As an FYI, I use two pumps on my face and under my eyes and another two pumps on my neck and décolletage.
I hope this helps and I hope you try these products. If you do please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts. Also, right now Lancome counters at department stores are giving away a 7 day supply for you to try while supplies last. At the Lancome counter at Macy’s/Woodfield we also have Visionnaire samples as well. Swing buy and pick up your samples, you have nothing to lose, only missing out on great products!
