**Side note, I have sensitive, problematic (Eczema) skin and all these products did not disrupt or cause me to scratch like crazy. I also use a dermatologist prescribed ointment so that may have assist on keeping my face calm. Like I mentioned I have used Hydramax + Active gel cream moisturizer and serum in the past and it actually kept my skin pretty smooth but please do not take my word for it - it worked for my skin.**
After Tiffany applied Teinte Innocence Compact in #116 Pecan-Walnut and Correcteur Perfection Concealer in Beige Santal under my eyes. She then applied Soleil Tan De Chanel Moisturizing Bronzing powder in Terre Halee to contour under my cheekbones and then Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Fandango, a neutral brownish pink without any shimmer. A tip Tiffany passed on to me when looking for a neutral everyday blush is to compliment the natural color of your earlobe. Something, I will now think of next time I look for a good neutral blush. Actually, this is also on my WANT list because I hear so many rave reviews on the Chanel blush. She applies this to the apple of my cheeks. She finishes my face with an application of liquid highligher - Soleil Tan de Chanel in Sunkissed - top of my cheekbones, tip of my nose and temples just above the side of the end of my brows (did that make sense?). I love how this makes my skin glow. Apparently this is the same highlighter that Jennifer Lopez uses mixed with La Mer (what else?) body cream to make her skin glow. Well if it's good enough for J-Lo then it's good enough for me!

Lips were finished with Aqua Crayon liner in Rouge, Rouge Coco in Lune Rousse and one of the new Winter Glossimer shades, Pleasing placed just in the middle of my pout. The reddish brown gloss with pink sparkles complimented this red lipstick beautifully. I recently started to wear red lipstick again so I wasn't as shocked on how bright my lips were. Then again it's Winter and if it were Summer I'd be reaching for a milky pink lipgloss. I'll have to make another visit to the counter just to swatch this lipstick/gloss combo that I would never thought to combine together. Here's a pic in the store and in natural lighting (it was that bright outside at 4pm):

So what did I walk away with? Just this:
