Chanel Holiday 2012 Makeup Review + Tutorial Video Details

Hello, everyone! This is probably the longest collection review + tutorial duo video that I have produced in ages. But there was a lot to be said, so many questions to address that I could not afford to leave out. Please note, if you did not properly hear during the review.. Notorious is officially my favorite contouring powder. It might be a satin finish powder, but it is so versatile! D&G's Tan would be my next favorite contouring product for everyday use since that can actually be used as a blush. It just depends on your preferences, but both products should work on all fair and medium to medium tan skin tones! Happy shopping :)

P.S. I didn't even mention the limited edition gold Illusion D'Ombre from this collection because it was very sheer. It fell short of my expectations, for it was missing the lush mousse texture of the Mirifique or Epatant Illusion D'Ombres.

  1. Hi Rae,
    What is the name of the white eyeliner you are using?

  2. Hello Rae-I am a new reader/viewer :)
    I know you said you didn't care for the new Chanel lip color on it's own. But, I think it looks great on you once you rubbed it in and added the gloss. And I agree that for the price, that is a lot of extra effort. Can you recommend a lip product that would have the same berry-color end result (it doesn't have to be Chanel) ?

    Thanks so much in advance !!

  3. hi, I have been enjoying your videos. I love it that all your tutorials are very wearable. but i do have a question about Chanel products. I have been using Chanel products for ever but just recently i heard that Chanel uses fetus tissues from abortions and miscarriage for their products and I wanted to know if its true or if all brands use fetus tissues for their products. Is there any truth to that?
