Chanel Tigerlily Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Tigerlily Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “golden orange.” It’s a warm tangerine orange with a soft golden orange shimmer set in a low-sheen finish. It reminded me a lot of MAC Juiced, which is a little dirtier–not quite as clean of a color as Tigerlily.  MAC Straw Harvest is also similar but lighter.

Chanel June Le Vernis

Chanel June Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “pastel apricot.” This is a limited edition shade (whereas the other two spring lacquers were not listed as limited). It’s a creamy, lightened orange that’s opaque in two coats. It reminded me of a Creamsicle. China Glaze Peachykeen was the closest dupe I could think of, but it reads less orange. China Glaze Papaya Punch is much, much more intense, brighter, and deeper, but continues in a similar vein.

Chanel Rose de Mai Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Rose de Mai Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is described as a “pink.” It’s more like a rosy beige, maybe a rosy peach, with a nearly matte finish. MAC Pink Frontier is a little less pink and shimmery. theBalm Stubborn is noticeably less pink and has a frosted finish. Inglot #341 is similar but just a smidgen less pink.

Chanel May Le Vernis

Chanel May Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense pink.” It’s a lovely clean, almost neutral pink. It leans just barely cool toned in the bottle and against my skin in certain lighting, but at a glance, it almost reads neutral against my yellow undertones. I suspect if you have cooler undertones, you’ll see it appear a bit bluer overall. MAC Ice Cream Cake is much more magenta and bluer. China Glaze Empowerment is lighter. Chanel Mistral is lighter and more yellow-toned.

Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner

Chanel Grenat Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($29.00 for 0.01 oz.) is described as “garnet.” It’s a rich burnished burgundy-red with a subtle coppery-red shimmer and even subtler sheen. It has pretty good color payoff in a single pass, though it tends to look browner and less red. If you were worried it might appear too red on the lash line, it doesn’t–it seems to compliment and work well against the natural tones of the skin so it does not make eyes look bloodshot.
