I saw some bronzers on Bloomingdale's site yesterday that looked quite dark. Very surprising. I have a feeling they are just dark in the pan though. I wonder the name of the collection.
Oh I tried that darker bronzer and it seemed quite dark and cool. Almost like contour. I was only using a cotton pad though. May try it with a brush next time. I did end up getting that bird highlighter. It works for me surprisingly. I thought might be too light and icy cool but it wasn't. I was shocked by how tinyl it was. I know I will never use it up but still. I love the design on the packaging and the powder itself. It should have been larger just to celebrate the artistry.

It is certainly a very tiny compact, but it is very firmly pressed and will probably last forever. Enjoy.

New Chantecaille foundation!

Every company seems to be on the stick foundation trip these days...

I've seen this on Neiman's website. I do a lot of travel so I'm interested in this. I'll post thoughts if they have it at my local store.

Winthrop44 Winthrop44 are you still liking the WA stick? That's the other one in my sights.
I do like the WA but I feel like it drags a bit more on my skin than it looks like it would when you watch Gucci apply it on her face in videos. I'm a little jealous of how it seems to glide over her skin, lol. That said I have not tried it more recently since I've been drinking water like crazy and that may make all the difference. It looks better after a little time passes and it kind of melds with the skin vs when you first apply, but with any foundation these days I tend to just use it sparingly where needed so that's not really a big issue for me.

I have a $25 thingie to use on Bloomingdales so I'll probably wait till they get the Chante. Would love to hear your thoughts. In FS (before they reformulated to include ingredients my skin doesn't tolerate) I mixed Porcelain + Alabaster and in Just Skin Alabaster is a good match for me. I'm debating between 0C, 0W and 1. I don't want too cool or too warm but I'm wondering if 1 will be too dark.

Oh thanks so much. No I hadn't seen those! #1 sure isn't looking too dark there, is it?!
It is not looking very dark at all--and it seems pinkish. I called my local Neimans and I'm hoping to run up there tomorrow. I don't think I'll be brave enough to take pics (they're not a super friendly one), but I'll let you know. Which Mac shade are you?

Ohhhh...exciting! Wish I had a store that carried Chantecaille but in my area I have to travel over an hour just for a Chanel counter! LOL I’m nc10-15 but more neutral. I’m generally one shade lighter than you in many foundations you’ve reviewed in the past. And yep, that #1 is looking very cool. It doesn’t look that way on the Chantecaille web site though. I think their web site swatches are really very good for Future Skin and Just Skin but the ones for Real Skin all look so dark to me. Confusing. Have fun if you get to a counter tomorrow!

Hi there I just left the Chantecaille counter. Here are the swatches that I made at the counter. The foundation does seem to have quite a bit of slip to it. The bullet is really small. I feel like you would probably do OK with 0W Which seems to me more like an NC 10 to NC 15.

backstory: I wanted a non-liquid foundation for travel/ carryon. I ended up buying the Armani balm foundation instead of this. It just looked really good on my skin. the Chantecaille is creamy and really very emollient. As a brand I know and trust Armani more and I need to leave later this week on a trip so I kind of freaked out and just grabbed the GA. I hope you find this swatch helpful. The lighting is not the best here.
