Chanel Sunkissed Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid Review & Swatches

Chanel Tender Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Tender Chanel Tender Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes two more shimmery shades, three more semi-matte to satin shades, and one more sparkly shade.

The other four shades were much better with...
