Chanel No.5 L’Emulsion Corps – The Body Lotion

image1 image

“Floral-aldehydic, a bouquet of abstract flowers with an indefinable femininity”

C & A: Firstly, let’s just all take a few minutes to bask in the glory of this product. The packaging is b-e-a-utiful and so luxurious. We lovely every inch of it, right down to the gold logo on the lid.

This has the iconic No. 5 scent, which has and will go down in history for years to come. We know it’s super pricey, but it’s totally worth it. This one was bought from our local department store for £42, and Debenhams sell it for the same price (here).

A: I think that everyone deserves a splurge and this would definitely be my choice. The scent is lovely, and lighter than the eau de parfum version – which can be a little heavy for every day use. Although I perhaps wouldn’t use this for everyday outings like work and boring stuff, I would use it for both casual and more special evenings and days out. The formula is so silky and smooth and hydrtaes your skin beautifully, and lasts all day – meaning the lovely floral aroma stays with you too. It is an incredibly feminine scent which is perfect for those summer evenings. I think that this is worth the hefty price tag because it makes you feel special, and after all – who doesn’t need a bit of Chanel in their life?

C: I can’t describe this product any better than Annie did… it’s just amazing. Chanel (and the price tag) are sheer luxury and this is definitely a special occasion product but I just love it! You only need a tiny amount of product for silky smooth, heavenly scented skin that is so sophisticated I feel like I shouldn’t really be allowed near the bottle. This is definitely getting added to my Christmas list… sorry parents!

MODEL co BB+ cream

20140519-181817-65897858.jpg
A: a couple of weeks ago, I posted a review of my MAC prime and perfect bb cream, which you can find here, so now I thought I would give you a review of another bb cream I bought by MODEL co. I actually ordered this from Birchbox, hoping it would come in time for my holiday but it didn’t so I obviously had to buy a new MAC one at the airport…

Firstly, it’s quite pricey. It was £15 but I didn’t mind too much because I had some Birchbox points to use but at the time I didn’t realise how tiny it was – the full size product is 35ml. I never think of this brand as being high end, but it is close to high end prices, and it wasn’t a lot cheaper than MAC so I was expecting a lot from this product.

Thankfully I’ve still got lots of freckles from my holiday so I don’t need to apply too much, it’s a really nice silky texture and suits my skin tone well once I’ve blended but it is quite difficult to blend. I resorted to using my fingers because my foundation brushes just weren’t working – this might be easier if you haven’t got a pigmentation like freckles because it just made them look a bit weird and smeary (I know that’s not a real word but you all get what I mean). I have found that it lasts well though, once it’s applied it lasted me all day, after applying bare Minerals mineral veil to hold my make up in place. It doesn’t clog my pores, which is perfect for regular use and it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing lots of make up, which is a bonus when it’s been as hot as it has today!!

I would say that this would make a good every day make up , I like to save my more expensive make up for fun things rather than just work, but I think it is a little out of the price range for every day wear for me – but I am still a student!
If you have more pennies than me and you’re tempted by the MODEL co brand, you can find it here on Birchbox’s website (their lipsticks are lovely too!).

Have you got any bb cream recommendations? #twolittleowls
