Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, a shiver of citrus and the sensual vibration of patchouli, is now available in a new variation called Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée featuring an unprecedented, sophisticated, and confidential way to wear fragrance. Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée is a light and delicate version of Coco Mademoiselle. It is a fragrance for night, yes truly, the same elegance with some sensuality that is perfect even for bed. It wears like a soft and hazy veil for the skin sheets.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée review

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée has become a part of my nightly ritual, I spray it on my skin, hair, and even my negligée. The composition of the fragrance is signed by Olivier Polge, Chanel in-house Perfumer-Creator. Olivier imagined the oriental scent like a watercolour. The wood is toned down to exalt the sparkling freshness of an orange, the softness of the floral accord woven with jasmine absolute and rose petals, and the musky facet around comfy white musk notes that nestle on the pillow. The focus is on the soft and endearing fragrant touch.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée review

The notes of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée are:

Top Note: Mandarin Orange

Middle Notes: Jasmine, Rose

Base Note: White Musk

The bottle of the fragrance is elegantly cloaked in a translucent veil. The frosted glass gives a glimpse of the warm fragrance within. L’Eau Privée is written in gold lettering which gives a feel of sensuality.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée review

I am really enjoying Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée in my nightly ritual before going to bed. I like the idea of a night perfume and a private way of wearing a perfume – something that is created for the nights and not night-outs. It envelopes the skin and creates a soft aura with its fresh veil of rose, jasmine, and musky notes. It is a soft, delicate, pleasant, and comforting scent. It stays close to my skin and lasts a while. It is an amazing addition to the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle line of fragrances.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée is available on all Chanel counters and Chanel.com

Nars has a new foundation and new concealer, I couldn’t be happier. The reason is I love Nars makeup bases, especially the Nars Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation (reviewed here) and Nars Sheer Glow Foundation (reviewed here) are my most used foundations for everyday wear. They are so comfortable and look so natural. This new foundation and concealer made me very curious, in the sense that what could be next to perfection ( yes, I mean the above-mentioned foundations are my most-loved, what could be better than them).

Nars Soft Matte Complete Foundation is a full coverage natural-looking matte foundation. While being stated as matte, it still looks natural and radiant, not like a glowy or dewy base but a natural semi-matte finish on my combination skin. It did not emphasize the dry areas on my face nor my problem areas. I felt my skin looked smooth, naturally radiant, and comfortable. I did not notice any oxidation or creasing throughout the day. As with other Nars makeup bases, the longevity of the foundation is very good, it stayed put throughout the day.

Around the middle of the day, I notice a very nice radiant finish, not shiny at all, the time around which the natural oils of the skin mix with the product. I have used it alone over my moisturizer as well as mixed with my moisturizer to use it as a sheer tint. It works very well both ways. Overall, I am liking the performance, the finish, and longevity of the foundation. I do not prefer using a setting powder over this foundation as I prefer a natural finish and not an overly matte one. This foundation is available in 34 shades for all skin tones.

Nars Soft Matte Complete Concealer is now available in new shades. It is a high coverage matte concealer that instantly blurs and smooths uneven texture. It also works nicely to conceal dark spots, under-eye circles, redness, and breakouts with a soft-focus matte effect that stays all day. This creamy concealer blends very nicely and looks very natural on the skin without looking cakey or dry.

I basically use it to conceal my problem areas including dark spots or breakouts. I apply it with a finger or a brush, preferably my finger as I feel the warmth of the skin helps apply and blend it well. And the results are very natural-looking finish. It blurs out the problem area without drying it or feeling heavy. For me, it works pretty well with or without a setting powder. This concealer is available in 30 shades.

MoroccanOil has finally launched two most requested products – All In One Leave-In Conditioner and Volumizing Mist. With an amazing range of hair care and hair styling products, these two new additions to the brand’s permanent range are well worth the wait. Since the time I shared about my MoroccanOil stay-at-home hair care routine here, my hair has been behaving very well with the consistent use of the products. I have included the newest launches into my routine since last month and both are well worth the try.

New MoroccanOil All In One Leave-In Conditioner and MoroccanOil Volumizing Mist review

MoroccanOil All In One Leave-In Conditioner is a multitasking spray that detangles, hydrates, and protects hair against breakage and thermal damage. It is a very lightweight milky formula and does not makes hair oily or greasy. The hair feels soft and nourished. A very fine spray comes out of the pump of the bottle and I spray 3-4 spritz on my towel-dried hair. I have even used it on my second-day hair to refresh them. When I leave my hair for air drying after spraying this leave-in conditioner, my hair is more manageable, look and feel soft and nourished.

New MoroccanOil All In One Leave-In Conditioner and MoroccanOil Volumizing Mist review

When I heat style my hair, the result is the same nourished and soft hair but there is an extra layer of protection from the heat. My hair is silky and shiny without any residue. This is a new staple I have been enjoying very much for my hair, definitely a keeper. Even when staying at home, it is keeping my hair healthy and bouncy without weighing them down.

MoroccanOil Volumizing Mist is a weightless mist that builds hair volume and lifts hair for a look for fuller hair. On the contrary to the typical hair volumizing products, this new MoroccanOil Volumizing Mist keeps the hair soft and maintains the movement and hold from root to tip without making the hair stiff and crisp.

New MoroccanOil All In One Leave-In Conditioner and MoroccanOil Volumizing Mist review

The hair looks full for over 2-3 days, with a light touch up in the mornings after getting out of bed. This volumizing spray is supposed to be used from root to ends and then heat styled. Overall, I am loving the results, there is no residue and it does not weigh down the hair.

Overall, I am really enjoying these newest launches from the brand and definitely recommend you to check them out. Let me know in the comments if you have tried any of these products or if you have any questions regarding these. Moroccanoil products are available at Sephora Canada and Morroccanoil official website here.
