I believe this came out somewhat recently, though I can’t recall exactly when, and Chanel’s website lists it as permanent. I was expecting to buy the new, holiday shade, but Nordstrom didn’t have it in yet (they just put it up when I checked last night–bought it, but it’ll take a few days before it arrives to me here on the west coast!), so I thought it might be a good time to try and review this shade. The texture was very soft and silky, but it didn’t seem powdery, and it blended out beautifully on the skin. It felt nearly effortless to apply, as the pigmentation was good (but not so intense that the barest touch of the brush gets too much product in one go) and easily diffused along the edges. It’s warm without being red or strongly orange, and the soft shimmer gives the finish a satiny glow that doesn’t emphasize pores. On me, the color wore well for almost eight hours before fading.
