Ombres Lamées de Chanel

Chanel Ombres Lamées de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette ($105.00 for 0.49 oz.) is undeniably more intricate and stunning upon arrival than most powders, but the question is whether the product–once the overspray is removed–actually lives up to the three digit price tag. There are six narrow strips with different designs, but there are actually only three unique shades. I wish the colors were contained with two strips in a row, rather than alternating, because it would make each area about a third of the pan and totally usable with a brush. It doesn’t work as well as average-sized eye brushes and is one better suited for detail brushes or if you don’t mind mixing shades.

The good news is that it was wearable and resulted in a decent look, but I don’t think the eyeshadows are particularly amazing (and they are, at least, dupable). They could be more pigmented and less dusty. The upside is that the palette itself contained a massive amount of product, so at least they didn’t skimp on that! The included brushes are decent, though I think they are still too large (especially the rounded crease brush) for using the shades individually. (They are better quality than the normal applicators that come in Chanel’s palettes, so that is likely part of the “justification” of the price tag.)

It’s supposed to launch exclusively on the 28th, but there is early access through Chanel Ombres Lamées de Chanel Eyeshadow Palettethis link.

Chanel Innocent (14) Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and very fine, light pink pearl. It had good color coverage, though not fully opaque, that went on without streaking, but some of the color settled into my lower lip lines noticeably.

The Rouge Allure Gloss formula is supposed to have “the colour intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” paired with “long-wearing coverage” that “instantly hydrates.” It’s a formula most suited for someone who likes more pigmented gloss, doesn’t mind some tackiness, and needs hydration. The texture had a light-medium weight to it with a light to moderate tackiness, which developed over time. It was comfortable to wear, as it was quite smooth and felt hydrating over the five hours it lasted.

Chanel Hyperfresh (360) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with cool, blue undertones and a semi-matte finish. MAC Sunset Beach (LE, $32.00) is warmer (95% similar). Chanel Affinite (65) (DC, $38.00) is warmer (95% similar). Zoeva PK040 (P) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). Chanel Rose Tourbillon (67) (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Edward Bess Bed of Roses (P, $43.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Peaches & Cream (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Black Opal Tulip (P, $8.95) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Bred for Beauty (LE) is cooler (85% similar). Clinique Berry Pop (03) (P, $21.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Stila Pink Rose Blush (LE) is lighter, more muted (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Joues Contraste Blush formula is supposed to have a “silky, delicate texture” with “buildable coverage” that gives a “radiant glow.” This is one of four exclusives to Chanel’s website, though it has been released before (but I don’t remember having it). Hyperfresh had mostly opaque color coverage, and it was less buildable than a lot of other Chanel blushes I’ve tried in the past. The consistency was thin, a little drier but had a softness to it that I’d expect from the formula. I struggled to spread and diffuse the color evenly across the cheeks, though, and I ended up having to cheat to soften the edges by using flesh-toned looser powder and a buffing brush. The blush stayed on the skin well for eight and a half hours.

Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee Silver Reflections Shimmering Powder ($45.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a very light white with subtle, cooler undertones and a smattering of white sparkle.

It’s a new, limited edition formula that’s described as a “highlighting powder [that] softly illuminates” with a “shimmering, pearlescent glow.” Long-time readers will know I have a personal weakness for highlighters, particularly smooth, silky, finely-milled ones, but Chanel disappointed me with this release with its chalky, powdery, and clumpy “highlighter” with minimal luminosity. It is largely a white-based powder with a touch of larger sparkle in it–I would not say it is a glow nor is it “micro-fine” in feel. Extremely fair complexions might be able to dust this all over, but the powder does not seem to add luminosity but rather dulls skin, while the sparkle is sparse but large enough that it just doesn’t give any glow. When I wore it as a cheek highlighter, it lasted for seven hours before fading.

Chanel Reflex (82) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and gold shimmer.

The Joues Contraste Blush formula is supposed to have a “silky, delicate texture” with “buildable coverage” that gives a “radiant glow.” This is one of four exclusives to Chanel’s website, though it has been released before (but I don’t remember having it). The texture of Reflex was silky, thin, but finely-milled and, surprisingly, blendable on the skin as the color diffused easily across the skin and had a soft, luminous sheen after buffing and working the powder into the skin. It had semi-opaque, buildable coverage (two layers for true-to-pan color). On me, the blush wore well for eight hours before fading.
