    Goodness, I cannot picture the day I would buy a Chanel polish for myself. I’m quite happy sticking to Essie and spending a bit more on skincare instead.

    R1280 for a foundation. Yes probably amazing product but don’t think the price justifies it at all. Love the benefit primer though

    I fancy the Dolce & Gabbana Lift foundation but what a price! Too scared to pay for that bottle and drop it on the bathroom tile floor.
