Chanel Article (204) Rouge Coco Stylo

Chanel Article (204) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark coral-orange with warm undertones and fine gold and fuchsia shimmer. It has a more multi-dimensional sheen to it in person, as the cooler flash of fuchsia shimmer is more striking against the warmer base color. This shade had opaque color payoff with a lightly glossy sheen that went on evenly and smoothly. It’s hydrating, wears for four and a half hours, and was comfortable to wear. MAC CB96 (P, $17.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Maybelline Rose Rush (735) (P, $7.49) is lighter, brighter, cooler (85% similar). Guerlain Geneva (48) (P, $55.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Estee Lauder Heavenly (P, $30.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). Dior Sunset (660) (LE, $34.00) is lighter, cooler (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Chanel Histoire (206) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a bright, coral-red with subtle pink tones and a glossy sheen. It’s red, but it’s pink, but it’s coral, but it’s so red! It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft, smooth, creamy consistency that melted against the lips but didn’t over-apply too easily (but I still caution you about that!). On me, the color wore well for four hours and was hydrating while worn. Guerlain Rouge Kiss (325) (P, $37.00) is lighter (90% similar). Revlon Provocateur (135) (P, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Colour Pop Frenemie (LE, $5.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Flamenco (DC, $28.00) is darker, less glossy (90% similar). Urban Decay Wonderland (LE, $18.00) is cooler (85% similar). MAC Hibiscus (LE, $17.00) is lighter, more muted (85% similar).

Formula Overview

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is supposed to offer the “intensity of a lipstick” with the “shine of a lipgloss” and “comfort of a lip balm.” The consistency of this formula is incredibly soft and melts against the lips, so it is easy to over-apply (and subsequently, easy to run through the product!) with a butteriness that you typically find in more emollient lip balms. In general, color coverage is semi-opaque to opaque, with wear coming in at three to five hours, depending on the shade. The formula is comfortable to wear and very hydrating both during and after wear. The downside is that these types of twist-up lipsticks (in the slim casing) tend to contain noticeably less than a standard bullet lipstick (0.10 to 0.12 oz. usually!) and the more pliant formula makes it easy to reapply and run it back and forth more than necessary (for the coverage). There’s a light rose scent to the formula, subtler than the Rouge Allure lipsticks, though.

Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills (262) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills (262) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad
Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills (262) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Beverly Hills (262) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.04 oz.) is a new palette that was released with the spring collection. It wasn’t originally available when I purchased pieces to review from the launch, but I saw it a couple of weeks ago when they released Les Sautoirs de Coco. It’s a fairly brighter, more colorful set of hues for Chanel, and if you tend to like your colors really bold and rich, I would look elsewhere. I have had better luck with the newer Chanel quads, but this was a miss for me, and it seemed to wear and crease faster than usual, too, which was unexpected.

Tisse Beverly Hills #1 is a light-medium, pinky lavender with subtle, cool undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff with a lightly dusty consistency that didn’t do so well on bare skin. This one needs a really good, more opaque/light-toned base to pop. On me, it creased after six hours. Kat Von D Astrological (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). MAC Triple Impact (LE, $20.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Inglot #440 (P, $6.00) is darker (90% similar). Stila Frosted Lavender (LE, $18.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). MAC Crystal (DC, $16.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (90% similar). Fyrinnae Unicorn (P, $9.00) is lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Eye Candy (P, $5.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever D914 Crystalline Mauve (P, $21.00) is lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Aura #2 (LE, $19.00) is lighter (85% similar). Tarina Tarantino Diamond Dusk #1 (LE) is cooler (85% similar). Buxom La-La-Lavish (P, $12.00) is darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tisse Beverly Hills #2 is a muted, light beige with neutral-to-cool undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The eyeshadow had good color payoff, but it was rather powdery and prone to falling out during application. The color wore well for seven hours before fading. NARS Give In Take I (LE, $29.00) is lighter (90% similar). LORAC Sugar (LE, $19.00) is lighter (90% similar). Charlotte Tilbury The Rock Chick #1 (P) is darker, warmer (85% similar). NARS Abyssinia (P, $25.00) is lighter (85% similar). bareMinerals Air (P) is warmer (85% similar). Chanel Poesie #2 (LE) is lighter (85% similar). Smashbox Flirt (P) is warmer (85% similar). Inglot #395 (P, $6.00) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). MAC Fashion Beat (LE, $16.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). Buxom Satin Seduction (P, $12.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tisse Beverly Hills #3 is a slightly muted, medium-dark blue with lightly cool undertones paired with a satin sheen. It is a “warmer” blue, but it isn’t so warm that it becomes teal. It had semi-opaque coverage with a lightly dusty texture. This shade seemed to fade almost instantly after applying it; I could never mimic the rich blue color for long, as it would fade to a duller, bluish-green on me. It started to fade after six hours. Natasha Denona Petroleum Blue (92M) (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Bukowski (LE) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Blue Mesa (LE, $16.00) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay Peace (P, $19.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Makeup Geek Poolside (P, $6.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Colour Pop Coconut (P, $5.00) is darker, warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Tisse Beverly Hills #4 is a blackened purple with a fine dusting of silver micro-shimmer over a mostly matte base. It was incredibly powdery and dry, which made it prone to sheering out and difficult to build-up in color. The texture made it messy to use, and it looked patchy on my skin when I tried to blend and diffuse it into the crease. On me, it had noticeably gathered into the crease after six hours of wear. Too Faced Huckleberry (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, warmer (95% similar). Tarte Play Nice (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit #3 (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Jungle Love (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Tarte Glamorous (LE) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Pinkluxe #5 (P) is more shimmery (90% similar). bareMinerals Center Stage (P) is lighter (90% similar). Dior Eclectic #5 (LE) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). NARS Arabian Nights #1 (LE, $25.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Straight Trippin' (LE, $5.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

There’s a light rose scent to the formula, subtler than the Rouge Allure lipsticks, though.

Chanel Conte (202) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and fine pearl shimmer. It had semi-opaque color payoff with a very soft consistency that glided across the lips, as if it was melting, with ease. This shade was more visibly streaky than other shades in the range. It was hydrating over time, but the color only lasted for three hours on me. Chanel Roussy (426) (P, $37.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar).

Chanel Lettre (216) Rouge Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, rosy coral with warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had mostly opaque coverage that covered evenly and smoothly, while the shiny finish made my lips appear plumper. The color wore for three and a half hours on me.

Chanel Les Sautoirs de Coco Glossimers

Chanel Pinctada (214) Glossimer
Chanel Pinctada (214) Glossimer

Chanel Pinctada (214) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a medium, fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a fine dusting of lighter pink shimmer. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage, while the Glossimer formula is one of those that has pigmentation from sheer to opaque (hard to know what was intended, unfortunately, on a shade-by-shade basis). The texture was lightweight and comfortable to wear, though it did not apply as evenly as one would want. It wore well for four and a half hours. Dior Cruise (676) (P, $30.00) is darker, more muted (95% similar). Chanel Babiole (215) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Make Up For Ever 207 Candy Pink (P, $19.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). NYX Sugar Cookie (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, cooler (90% similar). Bite Beauty Eleven (Watercolor) (LE) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). MAC Vibrant Vibe (P, $22.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).

Chanel Babiole (215) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It was semi-opaque and similar to Pinctada, just without shimmer and slightly darker. It applied a little more evenly, but it could still use some improvement. The texture was lightweight, comfortable to wear, while the color lasted for four and a half hours. Chanel Pinctada (214) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). MAC Full Speed Ahead (P, $19.50) is darker (90% similar). Dior Hollywood (688) (P, $35.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). Maybelline Opalescent Orchid (515) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery, warmer (85% similar). Urban Decay Scandal (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar).

Chanel Clarte (216) Glossimer ($30.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is light, iridescent beige with cool-toned shimmer and a neutral-to-warm-toned base color. It had semi-sheer coverage with a fair amount of shimmer; this gloss is more shimmer than color, but it may lighten the natural lip color somewhat. It went on easily and lasted for four hours. Chanel Songe (191) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Guerlain Star Dust (900) (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery, more muted (95% similar).

Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder

Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder
Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder

Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a two-tone highlighter with a pale white matched with a light-medium, warm pink. The white shade is softer and seemed more pigmented, so it tended to dominate even when the two were mixed. I wish both shades were equally high in quality, but the pink shade leaves something to be desired. If you expect to only use it blended and prefer a lighter color overall, you may still enjoy the product. Both shades yield a smooth, luminous sheen that didn’t emphasize pores.

Perles ete Fantaisies (Left) is a very light white with subtle, cool undertones and a finer, golden sheen. It had good, buildable coverage that was easily applied more intensely or sheered out for a softer glow. It didn’t look as stark on my skin tone (about medium, yellow undertones) as I would have thought it would, though it is definitely going to be easier and more suitable for lighter skin tones to use as a standalone product. For other skin tones, it may be easier to wear when layered over a blush to lighten it. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder (LE, $72.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Becca Pearl (P, $38.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Makeup Geek Psychedelic (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Champagne Pink (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Trophy (LE, $30.00) is warmer (90% similar). L'Oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Where the Dreamers Go (LE, $2.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Fanny Pack (P, $8.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Glowing Pink (001) (LE, $58.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). LORAC Shimmer Highlight (P) is less shimmery (90% similar). Givenchy Moonlight Saison (P, $52.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NYX Ice Queen (P, $5.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Burberry No. 01 White (LE, $68.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Perles ete Fantaisies (Right) is a light-medium, yellow-toned pink with a luminous sheen. The texture on this one was firmer and thinner, which resulted in having to really wear down the top layer and get through some of the embossing in order to get decent color payoff and blendabilty. For the price point, this is obviously not ideal. The deficiency in this shade is less noticeable if you swirl the two shades together, but you’ll find that the color is lighter than you’d expect if the two were mixing equally. The color lasted for seven and a half hours on me. Becca Rose Quartz (LE, $38.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Desert Explorations (LE, $2.99) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Gleam (P) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Algenist Rose (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Porcelain Pink (LE, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). Laura Mercier Devotion (P, $44.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Anastasia Starburst (LE) is more shimmery (90% similar). Jouer Rose Quartz (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Lancome Moonlight Rose (LE, $42.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Makeup Geek Luster (P, $20.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Beaming Blush (P, $30.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
