In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different!”  – Coco Chanel. 

It won’t come as any surprise to anyone who knows me that I’m a fan of Chanel… Just a bit! 

This story goes way back to Mother’s Day but I won’t bore you with the finer details I give you the abridged version. I got lots of CC cream samples (Now I had tried Chanel’s CC cream last year and thought it was really good…good, not better than my Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser. BUT! The new formulation however is simply AWESOME!  

 My mini Chanel haul! I may have to do a whole post on the sunglasses, they come with a story and if I get time tomorrow I’ll write it!  

 This is little tube of magic! It’s so pretty. The CC cream {Complete Correction cream} is Chanel’s answer to the BB craze. I’m no expert and please correct me (get it!) if I’m wrong! It’s my understanding that CC creams have more coverage than BB creams. They’re for the older gals like myself. So maybe a CC rather than BB cream if you’ve had a 30th birthday party!  

 The consistency is middle of the road. It’s thicker than moisturiser but doesn’t feel overly thick (psycho). 

 Giant hands aside… The coverage is definitely medium to full for me. I apply it over moisturiser and sometimes the REN Beauty shot (catch-up here).

If you ask me this is Chanel’s best day time face product yet. I’d go so far as to say it might be the best tinted moisturiser I’ve ever used! (Sorry Laura M!) 

If you haven’t tried this, I think you should stop what you’re doing right now…stop it!… Go to your nearest Chanel beauty counter and make friends and ask for a sample! (Go to Cathy or Paul in Liffey Valley ~ Samantha in Brown Thomas, Dublin, they will mind you) 

If you have tried this – what do you think?
