Chanel Fortissimo & Vibrato Le Vernis Nail Lacquers

Chanel Fortissimo Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a deepened, midnight blue with fine pearl shimmer. It had mostly opaque coverage after two coats of polish, and after two coats, it had a smooth, even appearance, but one coat looks streaky. The texture was slightly thin but workable, and the polish lasted for eight days on me with minor tip wear. Wet 'n' Wild Mazel Tov Madness (LE, $3.99) is darker (95% similar). MAC Midnight Ocean (LE, $12.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Zoya Song (P, $9.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Formula X Beacon (P, $12.50) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Entrelacs Eyeshadow Palette

Chanel Entrelacs Les 5 Ombres de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette ($80.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a set of five shades in the neutral category that range from “light to deep, satiny to matte.” They’re very soft, but they turn powdery and seem to apply softer than they appear in the pan. I think the formula is one that needs a base, probably something with some tackiness, if you want more coverage. If you like a very soft, semi-sheer neutral look, then you may enjoy this palette.

Chanel Beige Star & Chene Rouge Glossimers

Chanel Beige Star (206) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a pink-tinged beige with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color payoff, but there’s a fair amount of translucency so the natural lip color will influence this one a lot. For those with darker natural lip color, this may lighten and brighten to some degree without being particularly noticeable on. It didn’t settle as much as a lot of shades in this family have for me, but there is still some minor settling into my lower lip lines. It wore for three hours and was neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Goodness Gracious (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Rule34 (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). MAC Summer Sweetheart (LE, $15.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC On the Scene (LE, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Sweet Persuasion (LE, $20.00) is brighter (90% similar). Revlon HD Smoky Topaz (570) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, lighter, more pigmented (90% similar). MAC Boy Bait (P, $20.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Join the Party (LE, $15.00) is warmer (90% similar). Sephora Collection Perfect Nude (04) (P, $14.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Chic Supremacy (LE, $15.00) is lighter, more pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Too Faced Naked Dolly (LE) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is more shimmery, more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). Maybelline Nude Illusion (060) (P, $8.99) is more pigmented, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
