Chanel Double Perfection Compact

I'm such a sucker for cute packaging. The main reason I bought this compact was because I wanted a large Chanel mirror for my to-go makeup bag, not gonna lie! lol This compact is huge, it's almost the length of my hand and what's great about it is that it's actually a great product. I myself am not a powder compact type of girl. I like to use liquid foundation and touch it up with concealer/blotters through out the day. I initially was going to return this product because I figured I might never really use it because it's not something I would use in my face routine. But upon using this product I found that it's very handy for travel and great for touch ups. My routine still consists of using foundation so I don't use this compact as my all over color. One thing I found was that the consistency can turn powdery if you're not too careful, so you can really cake it up if thats your style ;P. My color is Suede which looks kinda dark in the pan but when used as touch up product blends quite seamlessly with my foundation which right now is Chanel Perfection Lumiere in 30 beige.
I know this might be a little bulky looking to lug around in your purse but come on, we girls carry around a ridiculous amount of unnecessary things in our purses and so this wouldn't be much more to add. I love that Chanel products usually come with a velvet pouch, this really helps keep the compacts from getting scratched when you travel with them. 

This product retails for $50 and can purchased through chanel.com or most department stores.
