PRODUCT REVIEW: CHANEL LE BLANC

IMG_1630-1

 

I got caught at the Chanel counter again y’all, but I’m so glad I did! With it being summer, I have some redness here and there, and aside from that, I wanted my make-up to have a smoother finish. A new primer was in order. Enter Chanel Le Blanc. I picked up this little miracle last week and it’s already a game changer. After moisturizing, I dot it around my face and then apply foundation like usual. Pores appear blurred out and all imperfections are instantly camouflaged! It gives a lasting dewy glow, which everyone is constantly in search of these days. This product also extends the wear of foundation, making my face appear fresh all day long. An added bonus is the SPF 30 and lightweight formula, making this primer ripe for warm weather! If you’re in the market for a skin brightening/perfecting primer, I’ve got your recommendation.

PS: The candle pictured is the single best thing I’ve ever smelled. It came in a set during the Nordstrom sale but is available by itself too!

Hi! Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week, you know the drill. While most of this stuff has to go on the back burner (aka I’ll just dream of it for a while and then concede working retail doesn’t pay for Chloe bags…), the wallet and Chelsea boots are more realistic/practical. I’ve been in the market for a simple yet interesting wallet. I like that this one from Marc by Marc Jacobs almost has a clutch-like appeal, setting it apart from the basic zip-around continental wallet I’ve been schlepping around. As of late, I’ve also been in the market for some black flat booties. Sure, it’s barely summer, but you could say I’m pregaming for fall. What have y’all been eyeing lately? Stop back here tomorrow for some July Fourth inspiration!

Welcome back y’all, happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend! The Weekly Wishlist is a day late, you could say I took Memorial Day off too. I’ve been a little romper-crazed lately. As y’all know, I recently acquired a floral Yumi Kim and I also recently just bought a plain black little number from BCBG. The Hawaiian shirt inspired romper above is next on my list, though I should probably chill out because really, how many rompers does one need? Moving on, I love horn-y (lol) jewelry, it’s so easy to incorporate into any wardrobe, and the price is definitely right on this necklace. The navy dress is from Elaine Turner and it will be mine once I secure funding. It’s so simple and easy, I love dresses that you can just throw on and go. I’ve been truly obsessed with these Aquazzura lace-up flats for too long, but the price tag is a bit of a deterrent for someone who just works retail. These flats from Boden offer a similar look plus they’re a color ripe for summer. They’d pair quite nicely with the Rory Beca print dress that I’ve also been eyeing. As you can probably tell, anything bright and summer-y is right up my alley these days. I actually pulled the trigger and ordered these Lisi Lerch tassel earrings. They’re huge and ridiculous and I cannot wait until they arrive at my doorstep! They’ll be a great addition to any outfit, as turquoise is basically a neutral this time of year. Lastly, I’ve been on the hunt for a simple, black cross-body. All my years of life and I never found one that was to my liking until now. It’s only $198 so I’ll probably end up taking the plunge with this guy (cue the wedding bells). I love the envelope style, plus it’s actually quite roomy for a cross-body bag! What’s on your wishlist this week?
