Friday, February 10, 2017


"There is a sense of autobiography in what Gabrielle Chanel did. She could not help using these colors, these codes, this was who she was, it was her life."

-Lucia Pica
CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer

I felt a bit overwhelmed then and I still do now. So let's all take a deep breathe before I proceed to introduce to you what CHANEL Beauty has to offer for the first quarter of 2017.

Introducing COCO CODES. 

Timeless shades and colors that effortlessly highlight your natural grace and elegance.

You don't wanna miss this.

CHANEL is known for churning out instant classics. They have this tried and true formula which women of taste and distinction find irresistible. When you buy CHANEL, you know you're getting nothing but the best. Their products may not always be on "the hottest list" but that's just probably because of it's sometimes hefty price tag (truth be told, their lipsticks, powders and foundation are pretty affordable) - which should not discourage you from giving it a chance. Quality over quantity.

CHANEL SKINCARE - BLUE SERUM


New for 2017 is the Blue Serum collection which is revolutionary because it focuses on LONGEVITY rather than ANTI-AGING.

CHANEL BLUE SERUM-2
CHANEL BLUE SERUM

To sum it up, Chanel did research on regions where women are most able to preserve their youthful beauty. They studied diet, environment etc and went through a meticulous process to bottle all of this goodness up for you.

CHANEL BLUE SERUM provides cellular energy equivalent to daily excercise, cellular metabolism (as impt as a balanced diet), adaptation to cellular stress + intercellular communication all in one nifty bottle!

SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? It's a more wholesome approach to anti-aging which will help you preserve your youth! Now that's priceless.

A TOP COAT FOR THE LIPS!

Exciting stuff this one. I tried them all and my favorites are the black and orange.

  • EXCITATION - a sparkling transparent shade that highlights color and makes it shine
  • IMPULSION - a translucent neon orange-yellow that peps up any color for even more radiance (it instantly makes lips appear larger, healthy and plump! LOVE THIS!)
  • CAVIAR - an incredible clear and pure caviar black that adds depth and mystery to every shade

ROUGE ALLURE GLOSS - Php 1850

It's like a cross between gloss and lipstick. Better than lip tint. This is one unique product. It's highly pigmented and extremely moisturizing.

(Instant Favorite!) ROUGE COCO SHINE Noir Moderne - Perfect for those who've always wanted to try a dark lip but are hesitant to sport such a severe look. It translates beautifully on the lips - as if you've just had a glass of bordeaux and then topped it with gloss. An elegant dark lip that looks great on brunettes and minimal make-up.

CHANEL LE BLANC WHITENING COMPACT FOUNDATION - PHP 3750

SPF 25

A foundation that adapts to weather changes. I used this during winter in Japan and also here in Manila. It's wonderful in both climates with just the right amount of coverage. It's so light you'll forget you have it on.


  • It brightens with ceramic platelets which refract light + ceramic pearls to fill in fine lines and uneven areas.
  • Its SUPER fine with a "shittori" (damp, gentle) sensation against the skin.
  • Comes with a double ended sponge (velvety side for a light finish, spongy for medium to high coverage)

*Available in 6 shades. I never travel without this.

COCO CODE BLUSH - PHP 3850


4 PERFECT SHADES IN ONE! 2 satin and 2 mattes you can use individually or all together at once.
The lighter shades double as highlighters with a honey gold tinge. While the mattes come in a soft caramel beige and a vibrant pink red for a natural-looking flushed glow.

PLISSÉ LUMIÉRE DE CHANEL HIGHLIGHTER  - PHP 3850


THE MOST PIGMENTED highlighter I've ever tried. Seriously. YOu won't believe it. A little goes a long way. I say this with no exaggeration at all. Excellent formula that glides on smoothly and seamlessly as if its painted on or airbrushed.

JOUES CONTRASTE ÉLEGANCE - PHP2750


I LOVE ALL IN ONE PRODUCTS and this is exactly what this is.

Top contender as my favorite from the entire collection. 

This is a rosy beige blush subtly lit with gold which delivers a subtle hint of an outdoor glow. Perfect for a fresh no make-up make-up look and looks gorgeous not just on the cheeks but also as an eyeshadow!!!! 10 out of 10 stars.
