Chanel May Le Vernis

Chanel May Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense pink.” It’s a lovely clean, almost neutral pink. It leans just barely cool toned in the bottle and against my skin in certain lighting, but at a glance, it almost reads neutral against my yellow undertones. I suspect if you have cooler undertones, you’ll see it appear a bit bluer overall. MAC Ice Cream Cake is much more magenta and bluer. China Glaze Empowerment is lighter. Chanel Mistral is lighter and more yellow-toned.

Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($29.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as “garnet.” It’s a rich burnished burgundy-red with a subtle coppery-red shimmer and even subtler sheen. It has pretty good color payoff in a single pass, though it tends to look browner and less red. If you were worried it might appear too red on the lash line, it doesn’t–it seems to compliment and work well against the natural tones of the skin so it does not make eyes look bloodshot.

Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel

Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel ($58.00 for 0.53 oz.) is a new and limited blush for springtime. It’s described as an “elegant highlighting face powder” with “subtle gradations of rose, coral, and peach.” Though Chanel says you can apply them on their own or applied together, you’ll tend to use at least a few strips at a time, as they are very skinny and won’t accommodate most blush brushes in just one of those little strips!

Chanel April Le Vernis

Chanel April Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a berry red cream that’s opaque in two coats. It’s a new shade for spring (and according to Chanel’s press release, it’s not limited edition!). The formula on this felt really lovely; it was thin without being streaky or watery, but it applied easily to the nail and evened out nicely.  I’ve had good luck with Chanel’s lacquers; they last about a week on me without chipping and just have minor tip wear.  It’s a darker shade that’s still lighthearted; it’s like the last few days of winter and the first few days of spring.
