Beauty | My Top 3 High-End Make-Up Brands.

As a beauty fanatic I get butterflies in my stomach when I see beautiful makeup. I’m definitely a fan of attractive cases and packages. It’s like judging a book by its cover, with emphasis on judging. It’s like a kid in a candy store, like using lipstick as a little girl from your mother who said not too use it.

Let’s start with my number one, Chanel. From all the brands I used is Chanel definitely worth the prize. Everything is just perfect: the package, the quality, the structure and its non-chemical smell. The pigment has a good pigment and stays perfect during my day. Even when I don’t use it for a while, it ‘’doesn’t get old’’ like drying up. I also love the classic look. Black with a touch of gold and the white logo. So simple, yet so sophisticated.

The second brand on my list, Estee Lauder. I love the lipsticks of this brand. The pigment is perfect and goes smoothly over my lips. It’s also long lasting; I only do a touch up during my day. To see if I don’t have it on my teeth. Imagine smiling to your office crush with lipstick stains on your teeth, such horror! What I also like from this brand, is their beauty products. The Night Repair makes my skin soft and moisturize my skin perfectly. The Day Wear moisturizer gives a tint when you apply it. It’s like it melts into the shade of your own skin color when you use it. Quite impressive! I use it for a touch up or when I see dry places on my face to blend it in with the rest of my makeup.

Last but definitely not the least, Dior. J’adore Dior! To me this brand comes close to Chanel. Together with Chanel I call these brands the ‘’grownups brand.’’ The older I get, the more I treat myself with high-end quality products. Not that there is something wrong with drugstore brands, I’m an addict for those too! I mean it more as treating myself in a selfcare way. I’m obsessed with their perfumes; Dior Poison is my favorite. It has an oriental floral scent that makes you feel you’re wandering in Tokyo in a blossom forest. Like a fairytale! As you can see Loves, my color is pink red. I feel it comes close to my natural lip color. Even though I love makeup, I keep my daily makeup routine simple. When I do feel like let’s step it up a bit, I add eyeshadow and an eyeliner, a highlighter and instead of a BB cream I use a foundation. Writing about eyeshadow; a Dior eyeshadow palette is on my wish list. I know, I can’t help myself! Hihi…

What is your favorite high-end brand?

Beauty Review | Chanel #488 Elise.

After my MAC Cosmetics lipstick collection, I got the hang of buying high-end makeup that I caught my eyes on Chanel. Chanel is after Elie Saab my favourite brand. Chanel stands for me, as chic and timeless beauty. I chose for Rouge Coco lippie in shade #448 Elise. I don’t know about you loves, but I automatically speak with a fake France accent when I pronounce Elise. Since it’s an attack on my wallet, can we enjoy it with our noses up? I don’t judge!

The outside package looks like typical Chanel. Black with golden lettered details. I always liked that colour combination. When you open it, you’ll get that tingling feeling that we all know. Like when you open presents during Christmas, or in my case, during Eid. The first thing you see is the usual white Chanel logo on top of the lipstick cap. You also can see the logo in the inside of the cap, which is black. The lipstick is surrounded with a golden sheath. I like how a simple looking thing can have a chic appearance.

I hope that I’m not the only one who says that I also buy with my nose. It is kind of habit to smell makeup before I buy it. Chanel past the odour test! The smell can be the best described as the scent of dried rose petals. The lippie has Chanel stamped on it, I like this detail. I was at first a bit sceptical about the colour. I have a love hate relationship when it comes to colour pink. I hate the colour Barbie pink and pale pink, but I like the shades between them. Does it make sense? Anyway, I like it turned out well! Definitely my favourite lippie at the moment.

It went smoothly over my lips when I applied it. I felt instantly the hydration, it lived right up on my lips. Same goes when I swatched it on my wrist. The pigment is so great and long lasting! The shade also surprised me. It has a small amount of glitter, perfect for that last extra sparkle.
