Chanel CC Cream Review

Hey my lovelies!!
Hope you are all having a fab Sunday, and you have already been over and checked out my 2nd vlog at PassionsandPreening Youtube
I was really lucky to have won an amazing competition quite a while back from Twitter, and in the package i got a few little samples, one being the Chanel CC Cream, so thought I would do a little review on it!

On opening this, it just screamed luxury, the distinctive Chanel logo and the black and white packaging was gorgeous. I opened the foil covering and it was a tiny opening, which initially i wasn’t sure about as I thought it could be hard for the product to come out nicely, but I was very wrong. The produt is thin, but thick enough to initially see that it was going to give a nice coverage. There is a slight scent from it, but it isn’t strong enough to put me off using it at all, it just smells like your typical foundation.
 I decided to use my fingertips to apply as this is the method I have used before with other CC creams I have tried. I applied my moisturiser as normal but didn’t use a primer. I put a few dots over my face and in an upwards and outwards motion started to blend it in to skin. One thing I noticed straight away was that it was a little heavy going on to skin, but the finish I got was as good as my normal beloved MAC studio fix foundation. It is branded as a CC cream, and without a doubt it done wonders with my high coloured cheeks, I had an even colour after application. 
 A little goes a very long way with this product, so I think it will last a long time. I would definitely suggest a moisturiser  before application if your skin is any way dry as I felt it stuck a little on my dry patches. When I applied it the second time, I used my moisturiser, primer then this, and it went on like a dream. It has now become a staple in my make up bag, and I find myself lifting it over my foundation due to the fab coverage.
Since starting using this, I have started to use my Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and i feel this is giving an even better finish.
It has a built in spf30 so this is great, for all us lazy people who hate having to put on a multitude of products! It comes in a very limited amount of shades, so there is a possibility you will have to mix it with a foundation, the beige suited my skin pretty well, although i think in the summer months where i would have a little more colour, i would have to mix this or try and find an alternative brand.
Overall a fantastic CC cream and it would lead me to want to try more of the Chanel foundation types.
IF you guys have used this, or any similar ones let me know something that I could use in the summer months!
Lots of love
