Chanel

These days, I don’t have many rants for Chanel. I’d like them to be more consistent in the quality of their special edition palettes, as there have been some real misses and at $80+, that shouldn’t occur. They have excellent shipping/packaging (the best) and one fo the better loyalty programs (it’s like a hidden feature – I get free overnight on all orders, and I’ve received random full-sized products in the mail as a thank you). I wish their products weren’t scented, though.

1.) Makeup washes off, so don’t be afraid to experiment and try different finishes, colors, products, etc. 2.) Practice makes perfect; you won’t get better or find the techniques and methods that work best for your style without trying! 3.) Makeup can be a creative outlet, so even if such-and-such shade isn’t the most flattering product on you, it doesn’t mean you can’t wear it and enjoy it!

My advice (which I follow in non-beauty, since I have the good fortune of needing to buy new products all the time for the blog!): 1) remind myself of how often impulse buys tend to bite me in the rear, 2) tell myself that if I’m still interested in it in a week or two, then I can give it real consideration, 3) remind myself of any financial/life goals that an impulse purchase would get in the way of.
