Was feeling glam Saturday. Trying a more ladylike style on for size.

I’m wearing a vintage blazer (baby blue) metal beading, designer unknown. Vintage earrings, designer also unknown. (And of course my makeup is Chanel).

This photo was taken in my book nook in my apartment. 🙂 what do you think?

A few months ago, I was finally able to splurge on some Chanel makeup… I will tell you, it’s SO worth the money. I hear you might be able to get it at discount using a website like Raise but whether discounted or not Chanel is definitely worth buying.

Why is Chanel makeup and products worth buying? Here’s 5 reasons why:

  1. Beautiful makeup makes you feel beautiful. It’s impossible for me to feel ugly wearing Chanel anything. If I combine Chanel with a good skincare routine using products like those from skinceuticals stockists, then perhaps I’d never have to worry about feeling ugly ever again!
  2. It lasts forever. I bought my pressed foundation powder in early late July and still have 85% of it. A little goes a long way with Chanel.
  3. It stays put all day long. When I mean all day, I mean you can go to work, go to dinner, get drinks at the club and come home looking the same. Even if I forget to take it off before hitting the gym, it still stays put.
  4. It’s durable. I drop things all the time, my makeup is not an exception. You know when you drop an eyeshadow pallet on the ground and it’s basically ruined? I dropped my rouge allure lipstick from my third level apartment all the way down to the first floor and the thing stayed completely intact. I’m convinced that their lipstick tubes are the small equivalent of a tank.
  5. It makes you feel “high fashion” without spending high fashion money. Right now I can’t afford “tweed pleated dress embellished with braided trim and buttons”, but I can buy the new fall shade of lippy for $34. Or maybe you’ll wear it just because it’s Chanel. And that is a perfectly acceptable response as well!

What’s your favourite brand of makeup? Mine is definitely Chanel, but second place belongs to M.A.C! A few of my friends swear to bareMinerals foundation for being light on the skin. Let me know why your favourite is and why, we might even be able to trade beauty secrets!

Oh! And Here’s the tweed dress in case you missed it, from Chanel’s Ready-to-wear Fall-Winter 2013/2014 campaign!

C’est Magnifique <3
