Candeur et Experience (268)

Chanel Candeur et Experience (268) Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) contains three shades of brown with a pop of warm red with mostly matte finishes. The texture of the four shades is firmer and thinner compared to most of the recent Eyeshadow Quads (it reminds me more of the previous formula in the quads), and I found it applied and worked better in practice than it seemed like it would from initial swatches. The colors were more buildable and were quite blendable on the lid, in spite of the firmer press in the pan. All of the shades lasted eight hours before starting to fade and lightly crease.

Chanel Rouge Brûlé & Rouge Contraste Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadows

Chanel Rouge Rouge Brûlé (128) Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow
Chanel Rouge Rouge Brûlé (128) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow

Chanel Rouge Rouge Brûlé (128) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, brown undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good pigmentation in a single pass, which could be blended out to semi-sheer coverage fairly readily, though sheer coverage was more challenging as it tended to look more uneven at that coverage level. The texture was emollient and felt wet to the touch, but it wasn’t watery or too thin on the skin, and it dried down within 10-15 seconds. It wore well for ten hours without creasing or fading on me. MAC Red Alert (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Coppering (P, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). NYX Fireball (P, $6.00) is warmer, more shimmery (95% similar). Kat Von D Doce (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Rust (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Arrow (LE, $5.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar).

MAC Gingersnap (P, $16.00) is more muted (90% similar). bareMinerals Imagine (P) is lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop White Rabbit (LE, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). Smashbox Siesta (P) is lighter (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Sunset #3 (P, $9.99) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Huda Beauty Trust Fund (LE) is warmer, more shimmery (85% similar).

Chanel Rouge Rouge Brûlé (128) Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow ($34.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a dark burgundy with warm, brown undertones and a semi-matte finish. The texture was spongy, lightly emollient, and smooth in the pot. It packed quite a punch of pigment in one pass, so it worked well as an eyeliner or as an eyeshadow, but it wasn’t as easy to blend and diffuse along the edges. It looked a bit patchy where I tried to blend it, particularly into the crease area, so it does take some work to blend the color out. Once on, the eyeshadow wore for nine hours before creasing faintly. LORAC Burgundy (P, $19.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Cocoa What Fun (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Charming (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). bareMinerals Stiletto (LE) is cooler (95% similar). Natasha Denona Gemma (106CM) (P) is warmer (90% similar).

Chanel Rouge Profond (320) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, dusty red with warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. NYX Crimson (P, $6.50) is warmer, brighter (90% similar).

Gucci Beauty Cherry Nectar (P, $49.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage” with a “silky texture.” It had semi-opaque coverage, which was buildable to fully opaque, but it seemed a bit more pigmented than your average blush from Chanel (which may be a good or bad thing, depending on your personal preference for pigmentation in a blush!). The texture was smooth, silky, and thin without being dusty or too firmly pressed in the pan. It applied evenly to the skin and blended out with fairly little work, but it could have been easier to diffuse along the edges (other Chanel blushes are easier to work with, but this was not a challenge to use either). The blush lasted just over eight and a half hours on my normal-to-dry skin before it started to fade noticeably.

Chanel Rouge Ingenue & Rouge Tentation Rouge Allure Lip Colours

Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick
Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Rouge Ingenue (168) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium, beige-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a soft, luminous finish with a very fine pearl sheen. It had good color coverage, though the natural lip color will still peek through (so it’s not the full coverage promised). The color went on evenly but had a tendency to pull into some of my lip lines over time. The texture was thin, creamy, and comfortable to wear over a three hour period. MAC Pure Vanity (LE, $17.00) is lighter (90% similar). Bite Beauty Café (LE, $24.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Highlights (P, $17.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). MAC Real Redhead (LE, $17.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Alexander (2016) (P, $35.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Scandola (LE, $55.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Pure Pout (P, $23.00) is glossier, lighter (85% similar). MAC Razzledazzler (P, $17.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). YSL Le Nu (70) (P, $36.00) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Rouge Tentation (169) Rouge Allure Lipstick ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep red with cool, blue undertones and a natural sheen from fine pearl. It was just shy of having opaque color payoff, which distributed smoothly and evenly. The lipstick felt lightly creamy going on, but it wasn’t heavy or too thin, which made my lips appear smoother, and it was comfortable to wear. I liked that it adhered well so that I didn’t have any issues with the color migrating outside my lips. On me, the color was still going strong after six hours of wear and was nicely hydrating while worn. Shiseido Ruby Copper (RD501) (P, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Dominic (P, $35.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Runaway Red (LE, $17.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Dior Splendor (950) (LE, $38.00) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Rouge Improbable (LE, $28.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Perfect Score (LE, $17.00) is cooler (95% similar). MAC MAC Red (P, $17.00) is brighter (95% similar). Smashbox Unzipped (P, $21.00) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Dangerously Chic (P, $23.00) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Dragon (DC, $32.00) is glossier, darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Guerlain Vega (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Guerlain Samsara (P, $37.00) is more muted (90% similar).
