Chanel Purchase

Exciting news, guys!!!
 I made my first Chanel purchase this week from Saks. 
I feel so fancy smancy. 

If you read some of my make-up post during Lent I blogged about some items
that were on my Beauty Wishlist. This Chanel cream bronzer has been a major
interest of mine for quiet a while now. I have heard and read amazing reviews
on how wonderful it is. Since I am nearly out of my Nars Laguna powder bronzer
I decided to make the big splurge and try out the Chanel goods.

Cream Bronzer??? It kind of sounds like a recipe for a muddy mess, right? 
How well can it really apply? Is it not going to look like brown smear on your face? 
How well does it blend? What if it's too dark? 
All questions I asked and was assured by the lady at Saks that it is fabulous and none of those
things are true. She told me they can't keep this product in stock. That always makes me
happy when people say that... means it must be good! She said she even mixes hers
in with her foundation. hmmmm, interesting. 

This is by far the most I have EVER spent on a bronzer!!! As my mom would say
it's a sin how much it cost. Or, it's just plain ungodly. :) Is that just a southern

BUT, I feel justified in that I truly do think it will last a very long time b/c even though
I've only used it once I can tell a little goes a long way. 

I applied this morning with my Real Techniques highlighting brush and omg it blends
amazing! I could not believe it was a cream. It goes on like a powder, has the texture of 
a cream, but not sticky. Very light in texture. With it being a cream it gives you more 
of a glow than a powder would. BEAUTIFUL! 
I'm so excited to have this product for summer. 

Hope you are having a great week! 

Verse of the day
"Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves to the work of the Lord, because
you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain."

What’s The Story, Brooke?

I'm Brooke. Brooke Story to be exact... hence the title of my blog. I'm southern, still barely in my twenties, and have a few too many lip glosses in my purse.
