Chanel Spring 2015 Collection

Chanel Spring 2015 Collection is now available online. (and I think some counters have it in, too, but it might not be at all counters yet). Here’s a quick sneak peek with full reviews to come! :)

P.S. — I did grab the nail lacquers as well, but they ship ground, so I don’t have them yet!

Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette
Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette

Flawless Contouring Palette ($50.00) (New, Permanent)

Through her artisan lens, developed over years of working as a professional makeup artist, Laura has carefully chosen these neutral shades in a darker range that help sculpt the face. The key to everyday contouring is to be discrete. Laura’s Contouring Palette is designed to define and highlight your features with five delicate, but buildable crèmes. The extraordinary formula is more blendable than typical contouring powders, allowing for a natural, flawless, fool-proof application every time.

  • 0.17 oz Contour #1
  • 4 x 0.1 oz Contour in Medium #2, Deep #3, Highlight #1, and Highlight #2

Availability: Exclusively at Sephora

Temptalia Asks You


What was the last blush you wore? Share!

Temptalia's AnswerTom Ford Lovelust! Well, when I originally wrote the post, that was true, but it actually ended up being Chanel’s spring blushes!

Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette
Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette

Sephora + Pantone Universe Facets of Marsala Eye Palette ($39.00 for 0.41 oz.) is a set of 24 eyeshadows to celebrate the color of the year: Marsala. Last year’s palette was larger in size and in amount ($48.00 for 1.53 oz.) with 24 eyeshadows and one blush. This year, there are still 24 eyeshadows (but no blush), and each eyeshadow is 0.017 oz. (compared to 0.059 oz. each) — just a heads up. As of this morning, it is already available for purchase from Sephora. I’m working through testing the shades, but there are quite a few here, so while I’m working as fast as I can, it may be three or four days before I have a review ready (possibly longer).

Kevyn Aucoin Starlight The Celestial Powder
Kevyn Aucoin Starlight The Celestial Powder

Kevyn Aucoin Starlight The Celestial Powder ($44.00 for 0.11 oz.) is a champagne-shimmered peach with warm undertones and a luminous finish. bareMinerals The Premiere (LE, $26.00) is slightly more beige. Cle de Peau Sand Beige (13) (P, $55.00) is more golden. Chanel Dentelle Precieuse (LE, $80.00) is more beige but very similar applied. IT Cosmetics Hello Light (P, $24.00) is more metallic. bareMinerals The Magic Moment (LE, $26.00) is similar. Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is similar. Laura Mercier Spellbound (LE, $42.00) is similar. bareMinerals The Love Affair (LE, $26.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

If you’re familiar with Candlelight, this is a new shade in the range. It’s darker and warmer, more orange/peach-based than beige-based. The texture was soft, almost creamy, and smooth that applied flawlessly to the skin; it was so, so easy to use as it blended beautifully and sat well on the skin without emphasizing pores but still giving off that luminous glow. Some products are just top notch; as soon as I applied this and saw it in the mirror, I was like, “Yep, that’s the stuff.” When I wore it, the effect lasted well for just over nine hours before fading. Only bummer is that when they redid the packaging on The Celestial Powder, they reduced the size quite a bit (0.17 oz. to 0.11 oz.), but the price is the same, and it would have been nice to see a slight price drop (maybe $36 or so).
