Chanel La Merveilleuse Rouge Allure Velvet & Rouge Noir Rouge Allure Lipsticks

Chanel La Merveilleuse (347) Rouge Allure Velvet ($36.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as an “intense raspberry red.” It’s a bright, fuchsia pink with subtle blue undertones that ends up appearing almost warm-toned. It had a mostly matte finish. The texture was velvety smooth and glided right on with even, mostly opaque color payoff. It was comfortable to wear for four hours, and then it felt a little drying for the next two (six hours in total). MAC All Fired Up (P, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC To Matte with Love (P, $20.00) is lighter, less glossy (90% similar). Colour Pop Toucan (P, $5.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Revlon Vivacious (120) (P, $8.99) is lighter, glossier (90% similar). Estee Lauder Jealous (P, $30.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Colour Pop Mars (P, $6.00) is less glossy (85% similar). Kat Von D Bachelorette (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). Maybelline All Fired Up (P, $7.99) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Tarte Selfish (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

In 1994, a uniquely striking LE VERNIS shade was revealed on the Chanel Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear runway, and a legend was born. When the polish debuted to the public a year later, it caused an instant sensation. Now, as a celebration of the shade that became an icon, the Chanel Makeup Creation Studio introduces a gleaming Holiday collection that pays tribute to the rebellious black-red, ‘Vamp.’

Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a blue-hued quad that runs on the more muted/subtler side, so it may be an option for “wearable” blues if the brighter blues aren’t your wheelhouse. I wish the first shade was more pigmented, but the four shades work well together. I think the blendability of the products was the high point, while pigmentation levels were the low point.

Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of shades to give you a classic, gray smoky eye. It’s by no means particularly unique, but if you tend to go for a softer, smoky eye in shades of gray, you may appreciate having them altogether. I prefer using this one damp, even though Chanel doesn’t seem to call out this formula as a wet/dry one (but it has that baked-like texture that lends itself well to the dual application), but that being said, this one isn’t “pigment-rich” for most shades when used dry.
