Chanel Entrelacs Eyeshadow Palette

Chanel Entrelacs Les 5 Ombres de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of five shades in the neutral category that range from “light to deep, satiny to matte.” They’re very soft, but they turn powdery and seem to apply softer than they appear in the pan. I think the formula is one that needs a base, probably something with some tackiness, if you want more coverage. If you like a very soft, semi-sheer neutral look, then you may enjoy this palette.

Chanel Beige Star & Chene Rouge Glossimers

Chanel Beige Star (206) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a pink-tinged beige with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, but there’s a fair amount of translucency so the natural lip color will influence this one a lot. For those with darker natural lip color, this may lighten and brighten to some degree without being particularly noticeable on. It didn’t settle as much as a lot of shades in this family have for me, but there is still some minor settling into my lower lip lines. It wore for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Sephora Collection Perfect Nude (04) (P, $14.00) is lighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Rule34 (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC On the Scene (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). Revlon HD Smoky Topaz (570) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Boy Bait (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Join the Party (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is lighter, more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel La Bouleversante & Pensive Rouge Allures

Chanel La Bouleversante (51) Rouge Allure Velvet ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a very smooth, thin consistency. The finish had a fair amount of shine–more than “velvet matte” would have as defined by most would be my guess! Though it’s not touted as hydrating, it is supposed to be “non-drying” and long-wearing, but my experience with it was that it was somewhat drying over the five hours it lasted. Something about the consistency made it seem like it didn’t really adhere to my lips that well. Dior Diva (LE, $36.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Steam Heat (LE, $17.00) is more pigmented, better quality (95% similar). Bite Beauty Candied Maple (LE, $24.00) is brighter (90% similar). MAC Carmine Rouge (LE, $30.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS Mysterious Red (LE, $25.00) is more pigmented, less glossy (90% similar). Illamasqua Maneater (P, $24.00) is brighter, more pigmented, less glossy (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Ecorce Sanguine, Chataigne, Vert Obscur Nail Colours

Chanel Ecorce Sanguine (671) Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, warm red with a cream finish. It was opaque in a single coat, though two coats isn’t fussy at all, so if you prefer the thickness of two, it applies like any good polish does–you just don’t need it for coverage. I tested this shade specifically for wear from the set of three, and it lasted for the typical seven days that Chanel’s formula does for me (without a base or top coat). The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it applied evenly with ease. Zoya Tamsen (P, $9.00) is lighter, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Shameless (LE, $32.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (90% similar). Dior Shock (762) (LE, $27.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). NARS Hell-Bent (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
