I had no idea what to call this week’s video – it’s such a jumble of reviews and demos – and so I pulled out the two features I thought might be of the most interest. Some new Chanel makeup bits (from the recently launched AW18 collection) and a foundation for supremely glowy skin. And thus the world’s most profoundly interesting video title was born; New Chanel Makeup and Glowing Skin.
All silliness aside, there are some real makeup gems in this one, especially if you don’t like to layer on a lot of product. The PUR Hydrafluid Foundation is really lovely and the Chanel Les Beiges powder is a brilliant barely-there bronzer for those who just like a touch of colour. I actually wanted to do a standalone review of the PUR foundation but stocks online seem to be very limited, as does the shade range, so I’m shelving that idea until I have more info.
As an aside, Clarins have just launched something incredibly similar; the new Skin Illusion Natural Hydrating Foundation*. By the looks of it, this serum-style face base replaces the older version of the Skin Illusion, which I liked a lot – a fresh, dewy finish with comprehensive coverage that never looked dried-out or heavy. The new Skin Illusion comes in a glass bottle with teat pipette dispenser (my least favourite makeup packaging of all time, but I’m forgiving when the product inside is so good) and has a silky, dry-oil sort of feel without being greasy. It’s supremely comfortable on the skin and has a very realistic, glowy sort of finish. I think that it will become a must-buy for nearly everyone who likes a natural, low-key foundation look.
There’s a full review coming up shortly, but would anyone be interested in watching very short, snappy Youtube video foundation reviews too? Just one product at a time? Do let me know; it always feels a little bit “niche” to just talk about a single product for minutes on end but I’m sure that people looking for foundation recommendations on Youtube would find them really useful…
I’m rambling. Watch the video for a little peek at some Chanel AW18 makeup (again, if you’d like a more comprehensive video review of the collection then register your interest in the comments below) as well as a concealer demo and a mascara that’ll make you throw out your false lashes…
