Introduction to Chanel: Makeup Recommendations if You’re New to the Brand

Introduction to Chanel

I’m new to this brand. Where should I start?





What would you recommend to someone just trying Chanel for the first time?

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). Tom Ford Beauty Roberto (P, $35.00) is more shimmery, darker, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Obi Orange (P, $17.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty All the Way (122) (DC, $30.00) is lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Sunset Orange (P, $35.00) is brighter, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Dozen Carnations (P, $17.00) is darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Safari (P, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Excite (LE, $17.00) is darker, brighter (85% similar). MAC Love Feeling (LE, $20.00) is lighter (85% similar). Estee Lauder Impassioned (P, $30.00) is brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). NARS Short Circuit (LE, $26.00) is brighter, more pigmented (85% similar). Maybelline Tangy Tulip (960) (LE, $7.49) is lighter, brighter (80% similar).

Chanel LA Sunrise Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadows

Chanel Spring 2016 Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadows ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) are an unexpected miss. Chanel was one of the first brands to debut this type of product, where it’s a cream eyeshadow but applies and feels more like a powder on the skin with a spongy texture. It’s been a favorite for a long time, but I had serious issues with application with two of the three shades.
