Temptalia Asks You


What kind of makeup tutorials do you prefer to read/watch? Every day/more minimal looks? Totally avant garde?

Temptalia's AnswerI love watching or reading through tutorials that really focus on a particular technique, makeup style/era, or are totally fun and avant garde. I think technique is very helpful, because you can apply it to what you’re doing, whether that’s subtle makeup or bolder looks.

Chanel Cheri (61) Rouge Coco Lipstick
Chanel Cheri (61) Rouge Coco Lipstick

For spring, Chanel’s released two new shades of the Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colors ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) formula. This formula is supposed to have “full coverage finishes,” “lightweight” feel, and be hydrating. Cheri is permanent, but Irresistible is limited edition.

Chanel Cheri (61) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, rosy-peach with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff, but there was some translucency as you could see my lip freckle peeking through. It applied evenly overall, but you may get slight “lines” if you press your lips together; thankfully, they’re not noticeable from a normal viewing distance–only up-close. It managed to wear for three hours on me. Revlon Jungle Peach (LE, $7.99) is lighter. YSL Tender Peach (26) (P, $34.00) is lighter. Marc Jacobs Beauty Pout (142) (LE, $30.00) is lighter. YSL Corail Intuitive (15) (P, $34.00) is similar. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is less glossy. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Irresistible (62) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($35.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark, pink-shimmered plum with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation, and it covered the lips fairly evenly with color. It lasted for three and a half hours, and it was lightly hydrating during that time. Urban Decay Rapture (P, $22.00) is darker. Chanel Ce Soir (P, $34.00) is warmer. Maybelline Yummy Plummy (P, $7.49) is less shimmery/glossy. MAC Craving (P, $16.00) is less shimmery/glossy. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

Chanel Canaille (89) Joues Contraste Blush
Chanel Canaille (89) Joues Contraste Blush

Chanel Canaille (89) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark, slightly muted, orange-brown with a soft, satiny shimmer. MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $25.00) is lighter. MAC Bad Girl Gone Good (LE, $21.00) is less shimmery. MAC Sweet As Cocoa (P, $21.00) is a bit darker. MAC Stylish Me (LE, $21.00) is less orange, browner. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture was incredibly soft, finely-milled, and silky without being powdery or dry. It had rich, true-to-pan color payoff that could be applied at full color coverage or built up in layers if you preferred a lesser intensity. The blush applied evenly, smoothly, and it was easy to blend out the color so that it looked natural and effortless on the skin. With the satin finish, it looked glowing and luminous on the skin without emphasizing pores. Canaille lasted for a full eight hours before I noticed slight fading along the top of the cheeks.
