Quality or quantity? or what's in my makeup bag! Part 1

All winter I wrote posts about leaving, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t use decorative cosmetics, just as I use and keep track of new products. This is my cosmetic bag and its contents, the review did not include Clarins shine, I have been using it for many years in a row, the palette of ISL shadows, there was also a post, Schnel blush and Dior Iconik mascara, I wrote about it earlier.

1 Chanel Illusion D'ombre 81 FANTASME 4g. Shimmer shimmering white
2 Chanel Illusion D'ombre 85 MIRIFIQUE 4g. Shadow Iridescent Black
3 Chanel Illusion D'ombre 83 ILLUSOIRE 4g. Shadow taupe

Opinion
They were bought last fall, just as they appeared on sale. My delight was not aisle; all fall wore them solo or in a combination of 2-3 shades. Very beautiful, sparkling shadows that can be worn at any time are applied with a brush - which is resilient and comfortable. The brushes are very easy to keep clean, each time I carefully wipe with toilet paper, for example. The shadows themselves can be applied with a finger, which in my opinion is much more convenient, you need to adapt to them. Shadows are better to drive in and not smear. You need to work with them quickly, I tend to dry quickly and crumble or look rolled up.
In winter, I used them less often, or rather, the white color turned out to be very bright for me, I need it with very light movements and very little, then there will be just a beautiful shine. She wore the least shade of brown, it turned out to be not my color, doesn’t fit my clothes and accessories at all, she looks cooler in the jar than before her eyes, she pecked at it. And I also wore black in the winter, with it very beautiful arrows turn out, even and clear, saturated with sparkles look in combination with matte shadows very harmoniously. Arrows in the afternoon and evening you can cover the entire eyelid and there will be a smokey ice, for example. The most favorite shade is of course black but also the most complex, it crumbles like fine sand on the face that is not noticeable until I start to powder, then the scatter lines turn out, the horror is just how much cleaning with them then, even if you wash and do the face tone again .
Now in the spring I am actively using them again and noticed that they are very dry and have become even more difficult to use, the round shadows drop out of their jars, spin and because of this it’s difficult to type on the brush ... in short, I’m shocked, and I want to write a letter to Chanel, why it happened, I always closed them tightly. All three shades are very beautiful, well pigmented and incredibly shine in the sun, but in cloudy weather they may seem like a bruise over the eye or under the eye :))

4 Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Makeup SPF 15 "Beige Rose-Tender" 30ml. Foundation

Opinion
Tonal Sisley served me faithfully and to the end - oh my favorite tone. But, like all the ladies, I like to buy something new and after Sisley I couldn’t find anything suitable for a long time, something better and most importantly even easier and invisible on the skin, because the summer is ahead and I can’t completely give up the tone. And I found it, this is a tonal remedy from Chanel, completely imperceptible and not noticeable. I am in love with the texture that conceals on the skin, leaving only well-hydrated skin with a more even surface. Very light, super thin with a pleasant fresh aroma of something water, not sticky, not oily and not silicone. In general, he is what I was looking for. Holds all day on my skin, in the evening of course he leaves my skin, but the skin does not shine after it. Of the minuses, it was noticed: 1 this is a package, or rather a lid, it doesn’t bother me that Chanel in plastic, on the contrary, fell down - it didn’t break and the cosmetic bag is lighter in weight, but the lid is poor, or rather the system, you need to shake it well and the lid is all in the tonic, so I open it, press it with my finger and shake, it turns out cleanly. 2 can emphasize peeling on the skin, which means the skin needs to be thoroughly prepared and moisturized. By the way, I also searched for an ultra-fine texture because there were many layers on my skin, so I didn’t want a thick layer of tone either. I use serum + cream + primer + Chanel tone + powder + blush. The tone does not hide practically nothing, you do not need to wait from it to mask redness, pores or acne ... it just gives uniformity and velvety. Everything!
And yet, it’s unforgettable that the photo is macro! In a distance of half a meter, nothing is visible at all (I'm talking about pores)

5 Yves Saint Lauren Vinyl Candy Palette 8g. Palette of shadows

Opinion
My beauty is a brand logo palette. I think the shadows of the LIS are the highest quality. No complaints, except that there are no sponges for application in the palette, but I have a lot of good assistant brushes :) In my opinion and taste in the palette, the colors are selected perfectly, both bright and delicate, as well as 2 options in the texture, flickering and satin. Shadows of fine, soft grinding, persistent, do not crumble and the density can be chosen by myself, I like more transparent applications. The palette is suitable for both daytime makeup and evening makeup. I love to create bright, summer and romantic make-ups with her. All 4 colors blend well with each other, only I use pinks less often.

6 Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Vernis a Levres Glossy Stain "15 Rose Vinyl" 6ml. Lip polish
lipstick + shine + stein
Opinion
And this is generally a find of this year. How can shine be so lasting? I am at work for 7 hours and my lips look painted in the evening, exactly the same as in the morning. I am amazed how persistent and at the same time not matte finish on the lips. Yes, yes, it looks like a sparkle. And the lips are so moist and well-groomed. Gloss does not spread, does not flow, does not stick. It is very easy to use, does not require a pencil, I love it when the lip line is natural, it flickers very beautifully in the sun. In one layer more transparent and in 2 saturated and bright. Its only minus is that it dries the lips, of course, this is not visible until the lip gloss, but after it disappears, it will leave a tight and wrinkled skin, which urgently needs moisturizing. Surely the brilliance is worth it; it will not let you down in any situations. I also noticed that on a moisturizing lipstick he lies down more evenly and well-groomed. I really like the color, but I want to buy a few more, something even more tender ...

Here's another small minus, somehow the brilliance flows and you get such a picture.

I love Lucky Opie for a long time, their quality suits me, they do not dry, they are stored for 2 years calmly and even longer. The brush is comfortable, medium width and long. Do not chip off into the floor of the nail and go, starting from the end. I wear a manicure for 2-4 days. Dry normally, time tolerant. And with drying it’s a fairy tale.

7 Opi Nail Lacquer "Pedal Faster Suzi" 15ml. Nail polish
Opinion
It is from the latest collection and most recently purchased. Very beautiful and delicate, suitable for any clothes. In one layer it is too transparent for me, and in 2 the most. He, like brown, also does not emphasize irregularities because it contains a shimmer, flickering and reflective particles, which I really like, they are practically invisible.

9 Opi Nail Lacquer "My Private Jet" 15ml. Nail polish
Opinion
This color is very beautiful in the sun. It is relevant both in winter and summer, dense, even in one layer is sufficient if there is no time for 2. Of course, in 2 layers it is even deeper and more intense. It hides the irregularities of the nail plate, if any (I had nails in the winter), he does not emphasize them, but like all dark varnishes, you need to apply them carefully.

10 Opi Nail Lacquer "Rising Start" 15ml Nail Polish
Opinion
Light gold, very beautiful, but only in the summer and especially on tanned hands, it was bought last summer. In winter, I stood and waited for the summer season :)) In one layer there and in 2 it becomes golden and dense. Does not emphasize unevenness on the nails.

11 Cristian Dior Diorshow New Look. Mascara

Opinion
This is a sampler and I will not paint much. I didn’t like it at all, too small a brush is also stiff, Eyelashes are obtained with sticks and do not hold a curl after curling (I have them straight). If only the bottom is convenient to paint over with such a fine brush.

12 Christian Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen 1.5ml. Skin Brightener

Opinion
My second account corrector after Lankom, which I loved very much. This one is very similar to Lankomovsky, also very light, does not hide anything and I would not call him a corrector, rather it is a means for shining and a natural finish. It is easy to use, you can use it under makeup or on top of it. Gives the skin radiance and smooths it out as soon as possible, making it smoother, but does not hide wrinkles, bruises or other visible defects. This tool is for those who are looking for an ultra-thin, weightless texture and coating. She took the lightest color, it blends perfectly with the skin. I have such a misfortune, shadows or slightly yellow, incomprehensible spots sometimes crumble under my eyes, corrector Christian Dior copes well with my ailments.
