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.

Chanel Codes Elegants (274) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, permanent palette released in the spring collection, though it gave me a New Year’s Eve vibe with all the shimmer and gold tones. 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!

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.” All four eyeshadows had a really soft, finely-milled quality that made application easy–I had no trouble applying and blending out the eyeshadows to create a cohesive look.

Chanel Elegance (370) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin sheen. The formula is supposed to be “soft” and “silky” with a radiant finish. Elegance had good color payoff–not quite opaque but definitely buildable to opaque coverage in two layers–with a soft, silky texture that didn’t kick up much excess powder in the pan. The blush blended out beautifully on the skin and gave it a natural sheen that did not look shimmery, just glowy. On me, it wore well for just over eight hours before fading.

Chanel Coco Code Harmonie de Blush ($70.00 for 0.38 oz.) is a soft, medium pink-coral with fine gold shimmer over a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage.

The Harmonie de Blush formula is described as a “multi-task[ing]” product that can be used for highlighting, bronzing, or blushing. There are four shades–a light, shimmery pink, peachy-brown, coral-red, and golden beige–that are easiest to use swirled together, though you can concentrate your blush more toward two of the four shades (vertically or horizontally) for more/less shimmer or color. The majority of the color comes from the coral-red, while most of the shimmer comes from the golden beige. The texture was soft, smooth, and blendable without being too powdery or too firm in the pan, so it was easy to apply to the skin. As I blended the blush out, it yielded a luminous sheen that wasn’t noticeably shimmery on the skin. This shade wore well for eight hours on me.
