Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel

Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel ($58.00 for 0.53 oz.) is a new and limited blush for springtime. It’s described as an “elegant highlighting face powder” with “subtle gradations of rose, coral, and peach.” Though Chanel says you can apply them on their own or applied together, you’ll tend to use at least a few strips at a time, as they are very skinny and won’t accommodate most blush brushes in just one of those little strips!

Chanel April Le Vernis

Chanel April Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a berry red cream that’s opaque in two coats. It’s a new shade for spring (and according to Chanel’s press release, it’s not limited edition!). The formula on this felt really lovely; it was thin without being streaky or watery, but it applied easily to the nail and evened out nicely.  I’ve had good luck with Chanel’s lacquers; they last about a week on me without chipping and just have minor tip wear.  It’s a darker shade that’s still lighthearted; it’s like the last few days of winter and the first few days of spring.

Benefit I Think I Love You Full-Finish Lipstick

Benefit I Think I Love You Full-Finish Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bronze rose.” It’s an apt description; it’s a sultry plummy rose with a metallic-like frost to it. The color coverage is nearly opaque. Clarins Blackberry is a creamier version–it doesn’t have the frosted finish. MAC Snazzy is redder and has fuchsia shimmer. MAC One of a Kind is a little brighter, less muted.

NYX Hot Yellow Eyeshadow

NYX Hot Yellow Eyeshadow ($5.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a pale, pastel-like yellow with a frosted sheen. It has decent color payoff, but it’s not as dense as some other NYX eyeshadows. It also felt powderier and was less true-to-pan in terms of color; it looks much lighter, which could be a result of the higher pearl/frost content. Make Up For Ever #102 is a bit more pastel and has a matte finish. MAC Gorgeous Gold is a little yellower and has more iridescence.
