hello womens out here. what are your favorite brands of cosmetics/make-up? im working now as a beauty consultant under the brand of CHANEL. well yeah its one of the expensive make-up and i love it so much. chanel's make-up has a light reflecting pigments that captures lights so it hides the imperfections of the skin and dullness. their skin is really good because its precise based on your skin condition and needs. and ofcourse the perfume! the great and iconic ChanelN5. but what i love most is the CHANEL CHANCE EDT. and for the men's perfume is the allure home sport and the platinum egoiste. how bout you what are you fav brands?

I like mineral makeup that is light and natural on the face. My skin is sensitive to a lot of stuff. I have never tried the makeup you sell so I don't no how that would work with my skin. My skin might like it or reject it. I have lots of makeup of different brands.

hi there strawberrybaby. each of us has a different level of sensitivity such us sun rays, foods, medicine, and cosmetics. Chanel make-ups is also hypo allergenic and still can use for those who hav sensitive skin and before the minerals brand make-ups strike the market Chanel make-up from the beginning has minerals already. if your skin is really sensitive i suggest you to stick in one brand if its really suited or ok to you. happy mylotting :))

Sounds like the company you work for is nice. I wish I had a book to look at the stuff you sell. It could work with my skin type. I never no unless I try things out. I never new that company had minerals in there makeup. That is nice to hear they have that in there makeup. And I like perfumes a lot to. Have a great day.

I have used several brands. I love Benefit though. I can't live without Benefit Some Kinda Gorgeous Foundation Faker and Benefit 10 bronzing and highlighter duo. If you try Benefit, I'm sure you'll be hooked. I agree that Chanel 5 is a little strong. As far as perfume goes, I like Vera Wang Rock Princess and Flower Princess. I also like Pink by Victorias Secret.

Chanel's foundations and lipgloss's are great, but I feel that their lipsticks and eyshadows are sub par. Their eyeshadows may be better suited for someone who doesn't want a lot of pigmentation, but their line of 'black' lipsticks were terrible. For foundation I like Armani and Dior and right now i use Bare Minerals. For the rest I like MAC's pigments and color selection along with Nars, and Diorshow for best mascara. I think each brand has their strengths and weaknesses.

hi there kimberball! oh yeah your right about chanel's foundation. chanel has different types of foundation ( liquid and powder) that depends on your skin condition. and we also have a liquid foundation which has a lifting effect. (lift lumiere), for those who has shinny skin ( matte lumiere) , foundation w/ vitamins and anti aging (vitalumiere) w/ whitening skin care properties (white essentiel) for professional finish (pro lumiere) and for those who like a no make-up look we also have the teint innocence liquid foundations, for full coverage make-up but still light on our face try the teint innocence compact cream. i can say that chanel's lipstick are great. because it was proven that chanel lipstich is 100% lead free. so it was really safe. for the eye shadow the les 4 ombres( 4 colors) are bakes powder so that it wont easily brake even you drop the case. but i can say that the color of chanel for eye shadow are more on the classy side. for mascarra try the inimitable mascarra and the new exceptionel de chanel. tnkx for dropping..

well, I am not much into Chanel No.5. I feel that it is more suitable for middle aged women who are mature. I feel the scent not stylish enough. Instead, I prefer Givency and Amarni.

most of my young clients find the ChanelN5 strong and for oldies. ChanelN5 is still the most popular perfume because of the uniqueness of its scents. and because it was made up on the 1950's so most of our grandma's and moms have it. so everytime we smell or see N5 it reminds us that it was their scent. its just like a music. its smels like a powder and really very fresh.But perfume is also like a cosmetics or make-up. it is also depends on the level of our body acidity. it may be smels good on you and not on me. but on a daily basis i prefer to wear a cologne. just a cheap one. just a baby cologne t make me feel fresh :))

I have not tried Chanel products that much, but I really like nailpolish, and I know Chanel makes some really cool shades from time to time. I also have a friend who ony wear Chanel fragrances, and she always smells quite wonderful! I would love to try Chanel products some more though!
