Today I opened an exclusive offer from @InStyle to try Vitalumiere Aqua by @Chanel. I am a huge fan of this brand and currently use their Perfection Lumiere foundation. It's easy to apply and gives me lightweight full coverage that lasts all day. I haven't used this Chanel line yet so this complimentary one week supply will be a great way to explore what it offers. The color match may be slightly off since I'm a shade 40 in the Perfection series but I going to give it a whirl. If it's not a match I have a few girlfriends that I know will enjoy this deluxe sample.
Special thanks to @InStyle and @Chanel for this goodie!
I recently visited my fairy godmothers in beauty at noticed there was a brand new look at the Dior counter. They have installed new lighting and counter tops that have 4 beauty stations for skin care and make up application. Each individualized pod if fully stock Dior products that can be used to remove any products you have on and prep your skin for a fresh faced look. I was ushered to a seat once I was done taking my pictures and given a full facial and complimentary makeup application. I use their DiorSnow line to even out my skin tone and to make my skin radiant.
While talking all thing luxe I learned that Dior is having a beauty event this weekend with one of their national makeup artist, Garrett, whom I've worked with before, remember Spring 2015? I have booked another complimentary appointment to have a new spring look created for 2016 and had a few items placed on hold that I might just take with me. I like to try before I buy so the more applications the better!
I told you I went to visit my fairy godmothers in beauty right? They always hook me up even if I just stop by to say hello. Check out the Dior and Chanel swag I snagged, over 10 mini products, just for stopping by! I've had a full week to use the perfume, mascara, body lotion, and face creams and I'm loving the results. I'll be back this weekend and was promised a Dior bag and a department store bag crammed with more swag just for my troubles :)
Beauty Bonus: When I try a new makeup product I always like to see how it looks in various settings. No one wants to look normal indoors but ghostly in natural light right? Try it before you buy it by scheduling a complimentary full makeup application and take pictures indoors and outdoors to see if the product you're considering it a good pick for you!!!
