New In from: Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Nº 02 and Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet

When I saw that Chanel had release a new Les Beige Powder I knew I had to try it, I choose shade Nº02 so I could use it as a bronzer, I only wore it a couple times but so far so good. I really like it, it adds colour to my face and also a subtle glow, you could use the shades separately or like me swirl the brush in all of them, it just gives such a pretty effect.
I also picked up their newest foundation release, Perfection Lumière Velvet, I don´t own the original Perfection Lumière so I can´t give you a comparison, the packaging is similar to Vitalumière Aqua but in black. I wore a couple times, and I really liked it, I think is going to be great for Summer, when it gets really hot and my skin gets very oily, I think this is going to come in handy, since this foundation gives a more matte, velvet finish than I´m used to, during the Winter my skin is more combination than oily, so I always go for a more dewy foundation.
I have to say I read in someone´s blog that the foundation oxidized on them and I think I have to agree I bought mine in shade 20 Beige and at first I thought it was a touch too light, but after I finish the rest of my makeup it looked darker, it matched much better, I don´t think it was because of the bronzer since I don´t put it all over my face. So I think when I doubt with this foundation go lighter.

Have you tried any of these products?

Clarins Colours of Brazil Summer Collection

Last Summer I fell in Love with the Clarins Splendours Collection, and now I´m in Love with their new collection Colours of Brazil, a while back I saw a preview of this collection on someones blog ( sorry I can´t remember who's) I knew I had buy the Eyeshadow Palette, so when last week I went to Sephora and saw they already had the collection, I was very excited,specially because that day they had 20% off! So I thought I was just going to buy the palette, but like always I ended up buying the bronzer as well, which I didn´t need since I still have one from last Summer, I just couldn´t resist! If you have the bronzer from the Splendours collection you don´t need this one they are pretty much the same except this one is a little bit less orange, so if you are very fair and you didn´t buy it last year because you thought it was too orange, this one is for you, although I have to say I don´t think it looks orange on. 
Since I bought them I haven´t stopped using them. The Eyeshadow Palette I´m obsessed with, I haven´t stopped using the top brown shimmery shade all over the lid and the bottom dark brown shade in the outer v, this has been my eyeshadow look all week. The Bronzer is beautiful as well, just adds a subtle warmth to the face, it´s matte with just a little square of gold shimmer that you can use for highlight.

What can I say I´m in Love.
