Duty-free shops will be the death of me.
On my way back from Barcelona, I made a stop in the shopping section of the airport and lemme just say, I went a wee bit crazy. 
Here's what I got.

I am addicted to perfume. When I smelled this one, which is Juicy Couture's Viva La Juicy Noir, I instantly fell in love. It's super sweet and smells like a sexy candy shop, if that's a thing. The scent isn't overpowering and seems to last a fair amount of time. Plus, the packaging? Totally amazing.

I am forever on the hunt for the perfect foundation, and by george, I think I found it: Chanel's Vitalumiére Aqua Foundation in "Beige 10". It's super lightweight but has medium-to-heavy coverage, it conceals any blemishes I have, it blends like a charm and has SPF to protect my vampire-like skin. The only fallback is the price, but hey, sacrifices must be made for beauty.
VERDIT: 10/10

Now, I have some issues with Chanel mascaras. I got this one in hopes that I would prove myself wrong but sadly, that was not the case. This is Chanel's Inimitable Waterproof Mascara. It claims to be both lengthening and volumizing. The length, I did get for sure. The volume, not so much. I found that my lashes became rather spidery after applying two coats. Also, no matter how hard I try, the brush always manages to get mascara onto my eyelid. It's very frustrating. Long story short, I wasn't that impressed.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Chanel lipsticks. Seriously, they're my all time favorite. The color pay off is great, the formula is creamy and the application and the amount of lipstick itself lasts forever. I'm in love.
This is Chanel's Rogue Allure Lipstick in "Passion".
VERDICT: 10/10

Once again, a Chanel lipstick is perfection. However, this "velvet" formula is godly.
This is Chanel's Rogue Allure Velvet lipstick in "La Sensuelle".
VERDICT: 11/10 (yep, that's right.)

This is the first Chanel lip gloss that I've tried. I find that the formula is pretty light and isn't sticky. The gloss itself isn't very long lasting however. Still, it's too pretty to resist. This gloss is Chanel's Lévres Scintillantes Glossimer in "Astral". The color is very sheer with pink sparkles in it. It's the perfect gloss for layering over a lipstick. Plus, the space-themed name totally won me over.
VERDICT: 7.5/10

This lipgloss is the same deal as the one above. It's lightweight, good color payoff but isn't very long-lasting. This is Chanel's Lipgloss Brillant Lévres in the shade "Ironic Tonic". The name is to die for.
VERDICT: 7.5/10

I love Daphne Groeneveld and I love her as the face of Dior. When I saw the campaign for the new shades of Dior's Dior Addict Gloss, I simply HAD to have the shade she was showing off. And now, it's all mine. Victory for Bailey. This is Dior's Dior Addict Gloss in "Diablotine" and it's simply fabulous. It's not sticky whatsoever, the color is gorgeous and it's perfect on almost any skin tone. You go, Daphne.

As you can tell, I'm a Chanel cosmetics junkie. Please don't judge.
