I've been wanting to try the Chanel Mat Lumiere for agggges. After seeing a couple of review videos popping up youtube on my recommendations, enough was enough, I NEEDED this foundation (the downfalls of being a youtube and blogger addict...). I had also been looking at the Chanel Vitalumiere so I decided to check them out at the counter to make sure I was making the best choice for my skin type (dry cheeks, oily t-zone). I decided to get the Mat Lumiere. I haven't been using it regulary as I have some other foundations on the go at the moment aswell so I can't give it a full review at the moment. I can say at the moment that I love the finish and it stays on quite nicely throughout the day.
I also went over to the MAC counter to buy myself a palette, Blot sheets, some Mac Matte and 3 eyeshadows. I got Petina, Espresso (for my brows) and Vex. I love the blot sheets, I've used them many times before and they're excellent. I wish I could buy these more regulary but they are quite expensive so I tend to buy the Superdrug Clarity blot sheets more often. The Mac Matte is ok...I need to try this more.
I was tempted to buy only a 12 pan palette and put all my eyeshadows in this but on a friends recommendation (Thanks Georgia!) I realised it would cause problems in transporting them around (Example - If I wanted to take one single eyeshadow on a night out). She pointed out that it would make more sense to buy the 4 pan palette (for transporting them about) and depot all my others into a 12 pan palette. Meaning I would be able to switch them about when needed. I haven't actually bothered buying a 12 pan palette and I'm storing them in a more purse friendly way (Will explain this in a later post).
Without flash. Clockwise from top - Petina, Vex, Shroom (I already had this) and Espresso.
