Can we just admire the packaging for a moment...black, and white...ahh my color palette!
Continuing on, are you in the market for a new powder?! Well, here is the Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder, another one of my makeup favorites and everyday essentials.
When I feel like switching up my foundations, if I am not wearing Fenty I will gravitate towards Clinique Superblanced foundation. I use to use Clinique's loose powder overtop their foundation and I found my face to get very cakey and feel heavy. I then switched over to Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder to apply overtop, and this powder was a game changer. The finish it gives is flawless and not to mention the scent of the powder is elegant. The scent of the powder, however, isn’t overpowering nor is it an irritation to the skin (I have very sensitive skin).
The con to this powder is indeed the price. When I am running low, I always cringe. The Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder retails for $52.00 + tax.
I say go ahead and splurge on a good powder, because as Coco Chanel would say "a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous”
September 7, 2017 goes down in history!
Have you heard/seen the recent fad regarding the new release of the Rihanna Fenty Beauty line exclusively at Sephora stores?! Well, in case you haven't here it is. The long-anticipated two-year making Fenty Beauty by Rihanna.
When the Fenty Beauty line was released on 9/7/17, I waited it out for two weeks. I wanted to watch YouTube reviews from beauty guru's first, to hear what they had to say about it. Two weeks went by, and I was completely convinced, I. NEEDED. FENTY. BEAUTY. IN. MY. LIFE. I went to Sephora to get color matched. I thought I would be shade 100 because of how white I am but, in actuality, I was shade 200...pleasantly surprised.
Fenty Beauty has a 4.5/5 star rating and I can honestly agree. Fenty Beauty foundation is a matte finish foundation with a medium to full coverage foundation for sensitive, normal, dry, combination and oily skin types, and so much more. Check it out at sephora.com.
Alright enough about the boring stuff, let's talk about my skin itself and how much I love the foundation.
Have you read my about me section? If not, you probably don't know but, I am from Hawai'i and in Hawai'i humidity is unbearable. You walk outside and you instantly sweat, and with the sweat also comes a mixture of your make-up running down your face. On top of the high humidity here, I also have very oily skin (yay me) so any type of foundation staying on my face is almost impossible.....until Fenty Beauty foundation. Like I said before Fenty Beauty foundation is a matte finish and Rihanna doesn't lie, it. is. matte. I can honestly say, when I wear Fenty Beauty foundation, I walk outside, go to school, do an errand or two, come home and my face does not feel nor look patchy. Even after applying the foundation to my face, I don't even have to set the foundation with a powder like I normally would because it's a matte foundation. It's a miracle and my saving grace. I have since gone through my foundation drawer and thrown out my other foundations because Fenty Beauty is my holy grail!
