Chanel Indemodable (166) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Indemodable (166) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Indemodable (166) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark, subtly warm-toned fuchsia pink with a satin finish. MAC Diva-ish (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Estee Lauder Ambitious Pink (P, $30.00) is brighter, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Rouge Allure formula is supposed to have “intense, long-wearing colour with full coverage and a satin finish” while also being hydrating. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a thin, smooth texture that glided on without tugging and was comfortable to wear, though not hydrating for me. The color went on evenly and lasted for four and a half hours.

Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow
Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Iridescent (112) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is aptly named, as it is a pale white with an iridescent sheen that flashes pink, lavender, and blue paired with a soft, frosted finish. bareMinerals Skinny Dip (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Ripe Plum (Left) (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Triple Impact (LE, $20.00) is cooler (90% similar). Makeup Geek Sugar Rush (P, $12.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Mood Ring (P, $12.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Cassiopeia (P, $29.00) is darker (90% similar). Too Faced Le Marais (LE, $16.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Opal (P) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Crushed Indigo (Left) (LE) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). Anastasia Pink Heart (LE) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Illusion d’Ombre formula is supposed to be an “intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow.” If you’re unfamiliar with the formula, it is lightly spongy and slightly emollient, but it doesn’t feel like the traditional cream eyeshadow and is much thinner and more powder-like in how it applies and wears. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable on the skin and had semi-opaque coverage in one layer. It was buildable to opaque coverage after two layers or sheered out for more of a wash of shimmer, if desired, without issue. It lasted for nine and a half hours on me before creasing slightly.

Chanel LA Sunrise Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel LA Sunrise Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel Shipshape (114) Rouge Coco Shine ($37.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium-dark orange with warm undertones and a light shine. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a fairly even application. The color lasted for three hours on me and was very slightly hydrating. The Rouge Coco Shine formula is designed to be a sheer and hydrating, but I typically experience little hydration with this formula myself (these as well as many ones in the past). Estee Lauder Hot Chills (310) (P, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Obi Orange (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Safari (DC, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange (P, $35.00) is more pigmented, brighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty All the Way (122) (DC, $30.00) is more pigmented, lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Roberto (P, $35.00) is more pigmented, darker, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Dozen Carnations (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Estee Lauder Impassioned (P, $30.00) is more pigmented, brighter (85% similar). MAC Excite (LE, $17.00) is brighter, darker (85% similar). MAC Love Feeling (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). NARS Short Circuit (LE, $26.00) is more pigmented, brighter (85% similar). Maybelline Tangy Tulip (960) (LE, $7.49) is brighter, lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Mighty (116) Rouge Coco Shine ($37.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It makes my lips look pinker and darker without a lot of “noticeable” color in a sense; because it brings out more natural tones present in my lip color, there’s more of an illusion of a stain. It was sheer, though, and if you have more pigmented lips, I don’t know if it’ll show up at all on you. The color lasted for two and a half hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Colour Pop Juice Bar (P, $5.00) is less glossy (95% similar). Chanel Rendez-vous (87) (P, $37.00) is warmer (95% similar). Guerlain Pinktie (002) (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). Chanel Elise (448) (P, $37.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Colour Pop Sweet-Thing (LE, $5.00) is more pigmented, brighter, lighter (85% similar). Estee Lauder Pink Dragon (P, $30.00) is warmer, more pigmented (85% similar). Urban Decay Sheer Ladyflower (DC, $22.00) is darker (85% similar). Bobbi Brown Raspberry Shimmer (1) (P, $26.00) is glossier, warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Energy (118) Rouge Coco Shine ($37.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral-pink with subtle, warm undertones and a soft shine. It had sheer coverage that went on evenly overall with an emollient consistency that glided on and didn’t tug. The color lasted for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. Guerlain Attrape-Coeur (171) (LE, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Giacomo (P, $35.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Lustering (P, $17.00) is cooler (85% similar). Givenchy Magnolia Organza (301) (P, $36.00) is warmer (85% similar). Guerlain Very Pink (360) (P, $37.00) is cooler, darker (85% similar). Too Faced Bon Bon (P, $22.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Chanel Melodieuse (136) (P, $37.00) is glossier, warmer (85% similar). YSL Rose Neillia (33) (P, $34.00) is glossier, warmer (85% similar). MAC Play It Soft (LE, $20.00) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Emilienne (452) (P, $37.00) is darker, more shimmery (80% similar).

Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon Harmonie de Blush

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

There’s not much to the description of this product, other than it is intended to “brighten” with a mix of “pink, beige, and coral” and has a “smooth, satin finish.” The powder is incredibly soft, smooth, and blendable without being powdery. It had good pigmentation that can easily be applied at medium coverage or full coverage depending on how much product you pick up with your brush (it’s not so intense that the barest touch of the brush yields opaque coverage). There are five distinct colors in the palette: orange, pink, fuchsia, peach, and coral, and oddly, the parts didn’t swatch nearly as nice as the whole, though it may have been the pattern wearing down that helped. If you keep your brush more towards the top half, you’ll get a warmer coral with more orange, while the lower half yields a pinker coral. The blush wore well for eight and a half hours on me.
