Chanel Lost Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a natural sheen. This particular shade seemed to apply (or at least, look) much lighter on my lips than swatched, and that might have had something to do with the medium coverage of the formula. It did not apply as well as I had hoped, as the color gathered in my lip lines and made my lips appear slightly more textured as a result. This shade wore well for three and a half hours but was comfortable to wear.

The formula is supposed to be a “long-lasting” liquid lipstick that “glides on like a gloss and sets with a luminous, velvet-like finish” and is hydrating. In my experience, they had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, while the wear time was between four and six hours (about the same as similarly hued-lipsticks) but was comfortable to wear and definitely non-drying. What I liked most about the product was actually the applicator, which was very smooth and easy to work with on the lips, as it had enough flex to maneuver naturally across the lips and made it easy to get crisp lines on the edges with it.

These are not for someone who likes a truly matte, flat finish that wears all day long, doesn’t budge or transfer, because these never quite dry down. They take anywhere from 20 to 45 minutes to “set” to a velvety finish–a light sheen but not glossy–and aren’t transfer-proof; I get closer to transfer-proof wear after several sips of coffee or blotting it down (which is true with the majority of lip products) but will not make it through a meal fully intact. They do reapply well, and they wear down evenly, so for someone who likes a semi-matte finish, longer wearing lip products, and finds traditional matte, liquid lipstick formulas too drying, these might be worth checking out. They are housed in a frosted glass tube with a glossy black cap and are lightly scented with rose (I’ll say it is subtler than usual for Chanel). All swatches were taken 30 minutes after initial application.

City Lights

Chanel City Lights Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for fall that features three neutrals and a soft, pale pink. As much as I liked the idea of this, the shades did not mesh as well together as I expected based on past experience with Chanel’s quads. I can see it working well for someone who tends to use one or two shades but found the undertones to be a little competing instead of harmonious when using three or four shades together, personally (this subjective observations had no impact on rating). The quality of three shades was quite nice–pigmented, easy to use, long-wearing–while the light pink was rather sheer.

Road Movie

Chanel Road Movie Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent palette featuring a beige, golden copper, bluish teal, and a blackened blue. It had a murky, smoky vibe with pops of color. It was decent but for someone who wants really rich, intense pigmentation, I think they would be happier with another brand, while those who prefer more buildable, softer, and more muted smoky hues, this might appeal.

Talpa (14)

Chanel Talpa (14) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was finely-milled, soft, and lightly dusty in the pan, but it adhered well to bare skin when patted on. I had no trouble diffusing and blending out the edges. It had great pigmentation that lasted for seven hours on me.

The formula is described as a “richly-pigmented” and “longwearing.” There are 16 shades available, and I’ve tried eight of them and have found that most are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with soft, blendable textures that are often on the dustier side. Some shades were prone to sheering out on the lid and applied best by layering and building up the color than trying to pack it on. They lasted between six and seven and a half hours on me, which was below average. I think Chanel’s formula in their quads is better overall, as they are not as dusty but still are blendable. I think the quad formula also sat better on the lids.

Chanel Terre Brulee (806) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark coppery brown with warm, yellow undertones and a golden shimmer with a subtle touch of gold sparkle. It had good pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with just a touch more product patted on top, while it was also blendable to semi-sheer coverage if desired. The texture was smooth, thin, creamy without being too slippery, and seemed to take a bit longer to dry down than other shades in the line-up. The latter made it easier to diffuse and blend out some of the edges. Once applied, it lasted for 14 hours without any changes.

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” There are eight shades (view swatches) released with one (Obscur) being limited edition. Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.

Chanel Bronze Antique (32) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a muted, medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. The consistency was smooth, soft, and blendable but was somewhat dusty in the pan and prone to sheering out a bit on the lid. There were also a few larger sparkles that seemed to spread away from the color itself and resulted in a bit of fallout. It had opaque pigmentation, though, and applied evenly to bare skin. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably.

The formula is described as a “richly-pigmented” and “longwearing.” There are 16 shades available, and I’ve tried eight of them and have found that most are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with soft, blendable textures that are often on the dustier side.
