Chanel Les Sautoirs de Coco Glossimers

Chanel Pinctada (214) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a fine dusting of lighter pink shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage, while the Glossimer formula is one of those that has pigmentation from sheer to opaque (hard to know what was intended, unfortunately, on a shade-by-shade basis). The texture was lightweight and comfortable to wear, though it did not apply as evenly as one would want. It wore well for four and a half hours. Chanel Babiole (215) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Savage (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 207 Candy Pink (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar).

Estee Lauder Rosy Future (LE, $26.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). Urban Decay Scandal (P, $22.00) is less shimmery, darker, brighter (90% similar). Sephora Collection Glossy Pink (16) (P, $14.00) is lighter (85% similar). Maybelline Opalescent Orchid (515) (P, $8.99) is darker, warmer (85% similar). MAC Love Buzz (LE, $20.00) is lighter, cooler (85% similar). NYX Funnel Delight (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder

Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a two-tone highlighter with a pale white matched with a light-medium, warm pink. The white shade is softer and seemed more pigmented, so it tended to dominate even when the two were mixed. I wish both shades were equally high in quality, but the pink shade leaves something to be desired. If you expect to only use it blended and prefer a lighter color overall, you may still enjoy the product. Both shades yield a smooth, luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores.
