Chanel Rose Favorite Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Rose Favorite Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described as an “audacious pink.” It’s a brightened, medium rosy pink with mostly neutral undertones; it looks subtly cool-toned in the pan but against my skin tone, it looks neutral to slightly warm. It has a mostly matte finish. Dior Bow is a smidgen darker and cooler-toned–Rose Favorite appears softer, less fuchsia. Guerlain Terra Azzurra #2 is cooler-toned. MAC More Amour is redder.

Chanel Mouche de Beaute Illuminating Powder

Chanel Mouche de Beaute Illuminating Powder ($80.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as an “elegant gold shade enhanced with pink highlights.” It’s a warm-toned, golden champagne with champagne sparkle; there’s a faint hint of pink that I spotted at a glance at the product in the pan, but against my warm complexion, I couldn’t see any effect from the coloring. Bobbi Brown 24 Karat is very similar in color and has a metallic sheen, too, just less sparkle. NARS Satellite of Love has a darker, tanner base color. bareMinerals Secret Radiance is a bit darker when swatched heavly, but on the skin, it really looks rather similar applied.
