Orgasm

NARS Orgasm Liquid Blush ($30.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and gold shimmer and sparkle. The pigmentation was buildable from semi-sheer to semi-opaque (two to three layers). The consistency was lightweight, thin but not so watery that it sheered out to nothingness, and spread easily across the skin without disturbing base products. For a liquid blush, I found it easy to work with, especially around the edges. The finish was more shimmery swatched than when I applied it to the skin, though there was still subtle shimmer when I tried it on bare skin as a blush. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

The new formula is supposed to “effortlessly glide on[to] skin for a lasting glow” where “one pump delivers the perfect amount of natural-looking color.” It’s supposed to have “buildable” coverage that’s “blendable” and “lasting.” It has a thin, almost watery consistency that spread easily, blended out well, and looked natural in finish on the skin with semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage. One pump seemed like twice as much product as necessary in my experience, though. I liked using fingertips or a stippling brush for applying the product to cheeks but would dispense on the back of my hand or a metal palette first. It dried down quickly but did not feel immovable, so a little buffing along the edges was still doable. The formula wore between eight to nine hours on me, depending on the shade.

Medium

Chanel Medium Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a light-medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had sehmi-sheer pigmentation in one layer, which was buildable to medium coverage with two to three layers. On my skin tone (about light-medium), the color just barely showed up (more noticeable in person than in photos) with a subtle glow–natural and easy-to-wear, so for a true bronzing effect, it seemed like it would suit fair and light skin tones best and be more of a highlighting powder on light-medium and medium skin tones. The texture was soft, silky, and somewhat in the powdery side, so it had a tendency to sheer out a bit on the skin initially. The powder wore well for eight hours on me before fading.

Chanel described the formula as a “powder bronze and highlighter enriched with illuminating pigments” with a “buildable, soft texture.” The brand noted to select a shade lighter than your skin tone for highlighting and darker than your skin tone for bronzing–so it was less of a multi-tasking product and more that one could use it either as a highlighting powder or as a bronzing powder. I think you can get a little illumination and subtle warmth if you choose a shade similar to your skin tone, though, which is the closest to having the best of both worlds.

Memoire (224)

Chanel Rouge Memoire (224) Coco Stylo ($37.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a rich, medium-dark red with cool undertones and fine, ruby red pearl. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t quite opaque, with a smooth, even application that did not settle into my lip lines and actually made my lips appear smoother and plumper. It had a very creamy, balm-like consistency that was quite emollient and glided across the lips effortlessly. The formula was comfortable and hydrating to wear over the five hours the color lasted. There was a faint stain left behind as well.

The formula 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 was incredibly soft and melted against the lips, so it was easy to over-apply (and subsequently, easy to run through the product!) with an emollient quality found in lip balms. In general, color coverage was semi-opaque to opaque, with wear coming in at three to five hours, depending on the shade. The formula was comfortable to wear and very hydrating both during and after wear. The downside was 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 made it easy to reapply and run it back and forth more than necessary (for the coverage). There was a light rose scent to the formula, subtler than the Rouge Allure lipsticks, though, with no discernible taste.
