Chanel Malice Le Vernis Nail Lacquer

Chanel Malice Le Vernis Nail Lacquer ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a deep, dark red with ruby red shimmer. Guerlain Lou-Ling is similar in the base color, but it doesn’t have the same ruby shimmer. MAC Gadabout Girl is darker, no shimmer. MAC Vintage Vamp is browner and has no shimmer. Deborah Lippmann Single Ladies has a similar base color but is a cream. China Glaze Velvet Bow also is similar to the base color but doesn’t have any shimmer. Illamasqua Scarab is redder, warmer.

MAC Show Orchid is more intense, slightly darker. Illamasqua Welt is pinker.

Chanel Reverie Natural Finish Loose Powder

Chanel Reverie Natural Finish Loose Powder ($52.00 for 1.0 oz.) is described as a “rosy golden beige.” I think Chanel missed a vital component of the description, though: LOTS AND LOTS OF SPARKLING BITS AND BOBS. The base color is a soft, candlelit beige with a hint of warmth and pinkness that features flecks of sparkle. It seems less sparkly compared to last holiday’s Feerie (which I don’t own but saw briefly). If you’re not a fan of loose sparkle in your face powders, I’d pass on this. It’s a finishing powder that mattifies and sets makeup, but it also had noticeable bits of sparkle everywhere I applied it. I barely patted it on, and there was a healthy blanket of sparkle all over my face (well, the half I applied it to).

Chanel Destination Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Destination Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “pale-satin shade [that] adds a silver-blue accent to eyes.” It’s a subdued, silver-ish blue with a frosted, metallic finish. When sheered out, it’s almost more silver-white with just a hint of blue. MAC Bright Moon is darker, grayer. Buxom Husky is bluer and lighter–more sky blue. Urban Decay Strip is a bit darker. Urban Decay Mary Jane is also similar, a bit bluer–richer. Inglot #429 is more periwinkle.

Chanel Sky Line Le Vernis

Chanel Sky Line Le Vernis ($30.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as “pale and pearlescent, nearly metallic… the beauty of blue.” It’s a pale sky blue with a hint of periwinkle and threads of metallic silver-white. I couldn’t think of anything that would dupe this. Cult Nails Princess is more of a powder blue. Zoya Skylar is much darker. I haven’t reviewed it yet, but I can see that Essie Blue Rhapsody is bluer, darker.  If you have a closer dupe, I’d love to hear about it!
