Chanel Fall 2016 Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks

Chanel Rouge Charnel (56) Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark pink-tinted red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. There was very subtle pearl that gave it a light shine. The texture was very smooth, velvety, and thin without being clingy. The lipstick sat well on the lips without emphasizing imperfections, and it lasted for over six hours. It started to feel drying after six hours of wear on me.

Chanel Candeur et Experience (268) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Candeur et Experience (268) Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains three shades of brown with a pop of warm red with mostly matte finishes. The texture of the four shades is firmer and thinner compared to most of the recent Eyeshadow Quads (it reminds me more of the previous formula in the quads), and I found it applied and worked better in practice than it seemed like it would from initial swatches. The colors were more buildable and were quite blendable on the lid, in spite of the firmer press in the pan. All of the shades lasted eight hours before starting to fade and lightly crease.

Chanel Rouge Ingenue & Rouge Tentation Rouge Allure Lip Colours

Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, beige-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, luminous finish with a very fine pearl sheen. It had good color coverage, though the natural lip color will still peek through (so it’s not the full coverage promised). The color went on evenly but had a tendency to pull into some of my lip lines over time. The texture was thin, creamy, and comfortable to wear over a three hour period. MAC Highlights (P, $17.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bite Beauty Café (LE, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). YSL Le Nu (70) (P, $36.00) is darker (80% similar). MAC Razzledazzler (P, $17.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
