REVIEW! Chanel Le Vernis in Accessoire

Hey guys!

This will be my first high end nail varnish review, as I got this one for Christmas from my aunt last year and I never got to tell you what I thought of it.


To be fair, it's Chanel, so it had to be good. I know that if I were to pick a colour I would have probably gotten something brighter and not a brown toned red, but omg this colour looks so amazing on my nails!


The application is smooth and the polish is so nice and shiny. It looks more brown in the dark and more red in the light but it goes perfectly with my skin tone and makes my skin look warmer toned. I would mostly recommend this to more mature women, as I find it quite sophisticated and it's a great one to wear for work. 


I am looking forward to trying more shades from this line as the polish quality is great and I want to find a nice spring and summer colour to wear now the weather is getting a bit warmer. I'm sure whichever one I pick will be well loved.


Let me know what you think of this colour and if you have a favourite Chanel nail polish that I need to try.

Love,
Kristine

REVIEW! Bourjois Delice de Poudre Bronzer & Highlighter

Hey guys!

I've seen a few people talk about the white chocolate highlighter by bourjois but I don't think it's available in the UK so I decided to get the next best thing; this duo face powder has the white chocolate highlighter and the chocolate bronzer together.


Can we just pause for a minute and freak out a little bit about the fact that it's chocolate? This product smells edible and I so wish it was. I don't know if you've tried the white Crunch chocolate but that is exactly what this smells like to me! And it still smells for a little while when you put it on. Yum!


Both of the colours in the duo look beautiful. The bronzer is a warm chocolate brown and the highlght a soft cream with pink shimmers. They look absolutely gorgeous when swatched.


My only issue with this product is that it is incredibly sheer and while it looks beautiful on, it's a bit of a pain to actually get it on. I particularly like the look of the highlighter but I can only apply it with my fingers, as my brushes do not pick up enough product. As for the bronzer, it does go on a bit more easily but that's because it's brown and you still need a fairly think brush.



Overall I do like this product but I wish it was easier to apply. I look forward to using this a bit more and maybe I can find a way to make it easier to apply; maybe if I shatter it into powder first. In any case I will keep you posted. Let me know if you have any better ideas.

Love,
Kristine
