Chanel Vamp Attitude Collection for Holiday 2015


In 1994, a uniquely striking LE VERNIS shade was revealed on the Chanel Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear runway, and a legend was born. When the polish debuted to the public a year later, it caused an instant sensation. Now, as a celebration of the shade that became an icon, the Chanel Makeup Creation Studio introduces a gleaming Holiday collection that pays tribute to the rebellious black-red, ‘Vamp.’

Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Jazz (244) Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a blue-hued quad that runs on the more muted/subtler side, so it may be an option for “wearable” blues if the brighter blues aren’t your wheelhouse. I wish the first shade was more pigmented, but the four shades work well together. I think the blendability of the products was the high point, while pigmentation levels were the low point.

Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Tisse Smoky (246) Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a set of shades to give you a classic, gray smoky eye. It’s by no means particularly unique, but if you tend to go for a softer, smoky eye in shades of gray, you may appreciate having them altogether. I prefer using this one damp, even though Chanel doesn’t seem to call out this formula as a wet/dry one (but it has that baked-like texture that lends itself well to the dual application), but that being said, this one isn’t “pigment-rich” for most shades when used dry.

Chanel Fortissimo & Vibrato Le Vernis Nail Lacquers

Chanel Fortissimo Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a deepened, midnight blue with fine pearl shimmer. It had mostly opaque coverage after two coats of polish, and after two coats, it had a smooth, even appearance, but one coat looks streaky. The texture was slightly thin but workable, and the polish lasted for eight days on me with minor tip wear. Wet 'n' Wild Mazel Tov Madness (LE, $3.99) is darker (95% similar). MAC Midnight Ocean (LE, $12.00) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). Zoya Song (P, $9.00) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Formula X Beacon (P, $12.50) is more shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
