Obsession

I have never been much of a make-up wearer. I love it, but it never seems to work for me. That is until I discovered the Chanel blush 'Fresque'. Honestly, it is the best, most natural looking blush ever. It gives you a slight glow without being overpowering or unnatural.
This is a screencap I took from a DVD that came with Vogue Paris a while back. It is taken from a scene where Peter Philips is teaching the other make-up artists the look for a Chanel Couture show, and he uses Fresque.
What are your beauty holy grails?

  1. The only bit of make-up I own is 'Smith's Rosebud Salve'. It is honestly the best thing in the world. I've used it for as long as I can remember, as my mum has always worn it too!

  2. Thanks for sharing this blush colour! I need a new natural blush- I was actually just looking at Chanel yesterday but got overwhelmed with everything and just left with a Rouge Coco lipstick in Mademoiselle and an neutral eyeshadow quad. My beauty holy grail is probably discovering eyeshadow primers- I use Two Faced shadow insurance.

  3. Agree with the first commenter! I was about to shoot Smith's Rosebud Salve as well. Other than that, Poudre Universelle Libre from Chanel, Black Moon eyeliner from Nars, Line Exact from Cover Girl.

  4. Chanel too. I don't wear much makeup but sometimes I need a blast of Chanel's Enthousiast orange/red lipstick.

  6. I'm actually a bit of a beauty product junkie so have a few. For skincare: Aesop's whole range, organic rosehip oil; for body: Kiehls and Palmers cocoa butter. For beauty: Mac blush in 'Dolly Mix' (looks bright in the pot but beautiful on - could not live without it), Benefit 'High Beam' illuminator, Nars 'Orgasm' blush, Essie and Chanel nailpolish, and Mac/Nars everything else.

  7. my holy grail is definitely the mac paint pot "constructivist" - it's a brown cream eyeshadow with a slight glow. and it's basically all i need for my eye makeup except for mascara and (only sometimes) black eyeliner.

  8. I have two, and I was sooo surprised when I saw that someone had already mentioned one of them, I so did not expect that!
    Anyway, they are Lancomes mascara L'Extreme, which is the best mascara ever. The second one is Smith's Rosebud Salve in Minted Rose. Gives your lips the perfect color and plumps them up naturally!
