Beige Dore (126)

Chanel Beige Dore (126) Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine ($37.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft gold with fine pearl and a luminous sheen. It had sheer coverage, which primarily added a little warmth to my natural lip color and a moderate shimmer and shine.

The Rouge Coco Shine formula is supposed to “soften and hydrate lips” with sheer coverage. In general, the formula has the feel of a tinted lip balm–very emollient, moderate slip, and some shine–and has a similar coverage level. The lighter shades, like this one, tend to seem even sheerer as they don’t noticeably alter the lip color. The lipstick was easy to apply, comfortable to wear when it was on, and could be re-applied without having to look into a mirror. Unfortunately, the formula was not particularly hydrating on me, and with the wear-time (an hour and a half), it’s hard to get excited for this shade.

Lumieres de Kyoto

Chanel Lumieres de Kyoto Harmonie de Blush ($70.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm, orange undertones and a gold shimmer strewn through a mostly matte finish.

The formula is supposed to “highlight, enhance and boost radiance for a luminous look” and consists of three shades–a soft, shimmery beige, muted coral-red, and light beige. The consistency was dusty and drier for me, which resulted in product not adhering as well to my arm (which is drier than my face) and looking noticeably powdery. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage that looked better when I patted and buffed it onto my cheeks. It could have been a little more blendable for me, though, as it took some extra work to diffuse the edges when I tried it on my cheeks. The blush lasted for seven and a half hours before fading on me.

La Secrete (61)

Chanel La Secrete (61) Rouge Allure Velvet ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation, but it was not fully opaque and could have applied more evenly.

The Rouge Velvet formula is supposed to be “non-drying” with “intensely rich, long-wearing colour” paired with a “soft, velvet matte finish.” The latter should be code for “not really matte,” as they have a more satin-to-matte finish that gets less satin and more matte after one to two hours of wear. The consistency was incredibly smooth and velvety, so it glided on easily and never tugged, but there was some slip to it that seemed to interfere with the application–some color gathered in lines, not totally even, and it had shorter-wear than most of the Rouge Allure Velvets do for me at a mere three and a half hours. The formula was, though, non-drying.

Noir Petrole (931)

Chanel Noir Petrole (931) Stylo Yeux Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep black with subtle, olive brown undertones and a fine, satin sheen. It looked a lot more complex in the swatch photo than I could really see in person as an eyeliner on my lower lash line, though.

The Stylo Yeux formula is supposed to be a “waterproof, smudge-proof” eyeliner with a “gentle, soft” texture. I gave up on this formula bit ago, as the majority of shades I had tried had a really firm, stiff, and painful-to-use texture, but I happened to receive one shade as a press sample, figured I’d give it a shot, and was pleasantly surprised. It was much, much creamier–so much so that I purchased the other shade in the collection. The texture was creamy without being too wet, so it didn’t transfer or migrate easily. Noir Petrole had semi-opaque coverage in one stroke, but it was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. It was easy (and not painful!) to use even on my waterline. The eyeliner was still going strong after ten hours of wear.

The formula is the same as the other quads in the Les 4 Ombres range, which is supposed to be “vibrant, pigment-rich” with “long-lasting pigments” and “effortless application.” It’s a stunning set of shades that work well together, is easy to apply and blend out, and lasts for eight hours (without primer). The biggest “con” to this palette is just that the shades are more dupable, so you may already have similar golds and browns in your stash!
