Chanel Khaki-Discret Eyeshadow Duo ($42.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) is a new (and permanent!) combination of a really deep, dark forest green with subtle khaki brown undertones and gold and emerald green micro-shimmer paired with a much softer, lighter pastel green with yellow undertones. I found the darker shade to be beautifully pigmented–very rich and intense with little product required to achieve that result–while the lighter shade was sheerer. Lighter and softer shades will always look light, but they can still suffer from sheerness (which you can identify by how much skin you can see when the eyeshadow is swatched on top). The formula itself is very soft and smooth; easy to apply and effortless to blend out.
Chanel Morning Rose Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a warm, rosy pink with gold glitter. It’s a really nice yellow-based pink, and for warmer skin tones, it’ll be a lovely shade for spring and summer (since I know not all of us are feeling like summer is right around the corner!). It reminded me of Chanel Mistral, but warmer and more golden glitter. The formula was good; not too thick or thin, flowed evenly, and applied opaque in two coats. I typically get a week of wear using a base/top coat with Chanel’s Le Vernis.
For summer, there are two variations of Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel ($50.00 for 0.49 oz.) — the first I’m reviewing is Bronze Corail (and I will review Bronze Rose later). It is a striped palette with four shades: a warm, medium-dark tan with subtle gold shimmer; warm beige with shimmery sheen; deeper tanned brown with a satin sheen with red undertones; and a pop of coral-pink with a subtle sheen. Swirled together, the resulting color is a sheer, soft bronze with a champagne sheen.
For summer, there are three new shades of Chanel Glossimers ($28.50 for 0.19 oz.) that are limited edition. All three are varying degrees of sheer, but in general, they are on the sheerer end of the spectrum. Glossimers are designed as a sheerer formula often recommended for layering. Though the range varies from sheerer to more opaque, these don’t seem to deliver quite as much oomph as other Glossimers–perhaps because the base color is nearly invisible or the mix of shimmers does not stand out as much.
Chanel Lilium Eyeshadow Quad ($57.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a collection of green and “brown” shades. The lighest shade is a soft peach beige with subtle warmth and a barely-there frost finis. The second lightest shade is a yellowed chartreuse green with a medium frost finish. Next, there is a smoky, bluish green with a blackened base and a metallic-frost finish. The final shade is the most complex, because it’s a mix of mauve, gray, and taupe with a dusting of cool bronze shimmer.
