Sounds like a nasty person eh? Well... stubbornness did take me to all kinds of highs and lows... but all experiences are valuable and I believe that experience can be a greater teacher in a lot of cases.
Moving along on a less philosophical note, introducing Chanel's latest -
Emphasis? Great skin, without looking all caked up.
So basically, a brief description:
Whilst enveloping the skin with the lightest layer you can imagine, it also ensures your skin to emit that dewy, rosy look without heavy and greasy.
For Dry Skin Peps - A good alternative to non-cakey, non-drying coverage.
For Oily Skin Peps - A good additional highlighting effect to finish of your matte look
People who are closest to me know that I've always been a fan of Burberry Beauty makeup. But this is the latest introduction from Chanel, and I don't want to miss the boat. I've always loved Chanel with its elegance.
The range comes with a BB Cream and a Compact Powder, both retailing at RM165. Middle range I would say.
Refer to the pics below on my fully made-up face to illustrate the effects (Dah macam movie pulak)

I love the effects of the powder. It's highlighting without making me look too made-up or too stark.
What I don't like?
Its meant to be sheer, but I didn't realise that it was soooo SHEER that I have application needs to be done repeatedly. Quite a waste I would say.
Would I buy it again?
I love the effects. But again, it won't help much covering during my difficult skin days. Which, I'm only human and I do experience it on a regular basis. Sigh...
