Chanel bronze universal

My latest love....

After watching a video by the lovely HRH collection I decided to splurge out and purchase the gorgeous bronzer above!

When I first opened it I thought it was very hard to get out of the tub. It's not a product u can apply by hand, or in a rush. I find that my mac stipling brush is the easiest to apply this product with.

As you can see from the pic above it's the perfect bronze colour.


It's a creamy formula so it applies easily and blends well

Looks great on all skin tones

The tub makes the product really easy to get out and handy for travelling as its not messy


Slightly pricy

A little goes a long way and the colour darkens when on the skin so be careful

Updated skin care routine

I'm constantly changing my skin care routine and trying new products. Mainly choosing products based on other peoples recommendations as opposed to whats good for my skin type.

I have great skin, I really can't complain as I never get spots and my skin doesn't get irritated easily. The one thing that's always bothered me is my dry t-zone!

Thankfully that's all changed with these miraculous little beauties below.

This is my go to facial cleanser it's amazing I seriously can't say enough good things about it. I use cotton pads to remove my makeup. I dampen them and keep them in a sandwich bag so they don't dry out.

The cleanser is a milky formula, and 4 pumps removes all the makeup from my face.

My lovely fiancé bought me this 2 months ago. It's a very strong cleanser so I only use this once a week. It leaves my skin feeling super clean and refreshed.

Finally the most amazing moisturiser I have ever tried. It's basically a drink for your face. Whenever my skin is feeling tight and dry I slap this on and wow it works wonders. I highly recommend this. It's a gel formula and sinks straight into the skin. I bought mine on debenhams for £30 which i think is great value compared to other brands which don't deliver the same results.

Chanel on my lips

Walking through House of Fraser I spotted the new Chanel poster boasting the gorgeous coco rouge shine. I immediately went over and asked to try the exact shade that was used on the poster.

The MA lined my lips with lilirose lipdefiner and then used the gorgeous coco rouge shine in boy on top.

Whenever I looked in the mirror I thought it really made my eyes pop and would be a great combo for my wedding. Boy is sheer on it's own but I see that as a bonus as I can apply it without a mirror and know I won't look like a clown!
