Metrol sale! Bye bye Nars and hello to Chanel!

On January 31, 2010 by Michelle

So I dropped by Metro on 29th to buy a powder foundation as my exisiting Nars powder foundation is running out. To my dismay, Nars is not sold in Singapore and I needed a foundation match too as I grew fairer. I did as much research as I could at and finally decided that I should give Chanel makeup line a try. At the counter, I was deeply amazed at how finely-milled their powder foundation were. The powder was as soft as velvet! Knowing that my skin is sensitive, I requested to try on the foundation and do a little shopping at metro to ensure that my skin does not react to the foundation. After 30 minitues, I concluded that I will be purchasing the foundation 🙂

The SA suggessted that Mat Lumiere Extreme for me as I have pretty oily skin, despite my skin being dehyrated and flaky. I was matched shade #10, the lightest yellow-toned shade. The yellow would be able to counteract with my redness. I am so glad to be able to try a Chanel product because I have heard great reviews on it and also because I LOVE their packaging, espcially it’s logo! Haha 🙂

I will be doing an in-depth review after using the foundation for a while. When I am more free, I will be doing another review on Nars powder foundation too! It’s my HG powder foundation thus far and I hope that Chanel will be on par with or even better than Nars!
