Chanel Mediterranee Stylo Eyeshadows

Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a twist-up, cream-based eyeshadow that’s supposed to be lightweight, long-wearing, and cooling when it touches the skin. It’s supposed to give a “shimmering veil of color.” The formula is semi-sheer to semi-opaque in one stroke, and it is buildable to opaque coverage with two to three passes, or you can use a flat, firm synthetic brush, which seems to give mostly opaque coverage more readily. I also find using a brush offers infinitely more precision, maneuverability, and gives a more even layer of coverage. The wear varied from shade to shade; as short as six hours to as long as eight hours. The formula has a fair amount of slip but dries down quickly, and it does have a wet, cool sensation when the eyeshadow hits the lid, though this is lessened if you use a separate applicator. I think this formula works best in more neutral tones, as they’re more forgiving on the skin, but shades like purple and blue don’t work as well when they’re even a little bit uneven.

Chanel Vera, Roussy, Legende Rouge Coco Lipsticks

Chanel Vera (420) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “light pink.” It’s a light-medium pink with warm undertones and fine, gold shimmer. It had semi-sheer color payoff that covered the lips fairly evenly. On me, the color only wore for two hours, and it was neither hydrating nor drying. MAC I’m In (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer. Marc Jacobs Beauty Have We Met? (108) (P, $30.00) is darker. Chanel Cecile (432) (P, $36.00) is less shimmery. Chanel Olga (422) (P, $36.00) is slightly lighter. Guerlain Rosy Silk (LE, $37.00) is less glossy. Maybelline Blushing Bud (705) (P, $7.49) is darker, warmer, less shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Ian (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery. Tom Ford Beauty Addison (LE, $32.00) is less shimmery, warmer. Too Faced Shimmering Marshmallow Bunny (LE, $22.00) is more shimmery. MAC Dream Daze (LE, $22.00) is warmer, less shimmery.

Chanel Catherine, Teheran, Sari Dore Rouge Coco Lipsticks

Chanel Catherine (410) Rouge Coco Lipstick ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “pink peach.” It’s a light-medium, softened peach with a hint of pink and a very fine, pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage, but the texture had enough slip in it that it didn’t apply as evenly as desired. On me, the color lasted for three hours but some color pulled into lip lines after two hours of wear. It was neither hydrating nor drying on me. There was a surprising number of dupes for this one. MAC Soft Talkin’ (LE, $20.00) is darker. MAC Real Redhead (LE, $16.00) is slightly pinker. MAC French Twist (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Chanel Adrienne (402) (P, $36.00) is slightly warmer. Colour Pop Button (P, $5.00) is more matte, more opaque. Bite Beauty Leche (P, $24.00) is more opaque. Chanel Volage (227) (LE, $34.00) is lighter. Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect (P, $32.00) is more opaque. NARS Raquel (P, $32.00) is slightly brighter, more opaque. Chanel Cheri (61) (P, $34.00) is pinker. Estee Lauder Insatiable Ivory (P, $30.00) is warmer. Chanel Charmeuse (142) (LE, $34.00) is lighter. NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is darker, less glossy. Marc Jacobs Beauty Dizzy Spell (104) (P, $30.00) is similar. Givenchy Beige Plume (102) (P, $36.00) is pinker. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is warmer, brighter.

Chanel Terrana, Mediterranee, Coquelicot, Lavanda Le Vernis Nail Colours

Chanel Terrana (697) Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a smoky, taupe-brown with very fine, pearly shimmer in bronze and pink. It was mostly opaque after two coats, though I’d recommend a slightly thicker second coat to ensure full opacity (I went with two thin coats on my pinky nail, and there’s some visible nail line coming through). The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and it flowed evenly across the nail without pooling along the edges. It lasted for seven with days with minor tip wear (no base or top coat), which is average for me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
