Electrum Lamé (905)

Chanel Electrum Lame (905) Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30.00 for 0.05 oz.) is a pale, white gold with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation with a soft, lightly dusty consistency that was blendable and easy to work with, though there was a bit of fallout due. If I used a dampened brush, I was able to get opaque coverage in one layer. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.05 oz. - $600.00 Per Ounce

The formula is described as a “richly-pigmented” and “longwearing.” There are 16 shades available, and I’ve tried eight of them and have found that most are semi-opaque to opaque in coverage with soft, blendable textures that are often on the dustier side. Some shades were prone to sheering out on the lid and applied best by layering and building up the color than trying to pack it on. They lasted between six and seven and a half hours on me, which was below average. I think Chanel’s formula in their quads is better overall, as they are not as dusty but still are blendable.

Flaming Lips (812)

Chanel Flaming Lips (812) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a rich, ruby red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a metallic pearl paired with a shiny, glossy finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips without emphasizing my lip lines. The consistency was smooth, light-medium in thickness but still lightweight, and mostly non-sticky. The gloss did feel a bit thicker compared to other Rouge Coco Glosses, but it was also much more pigmented than the typical shade, though officially the formula runs “sheer to opaque” (and rarely gives insight in what’s what!). This shade stayed on well for five hours and was hydrating over time. I didn’t experience any feathering or bleeding, but keep in mind that those are not things I normally experience.

Formula Overview

$30.00/0.19 oz. - $157.89 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “intense shine, hydration” with a “gel-like texture” with shades that vary from “sheer to opaque” in coverage. The consistency has a smooth, lightweight texture that can feel more like a gel-like texture with some of the sheerer shades and more like a cream and gel hybrid with more opaque shades. It’s a formula that’s comfortable to wear with light tackiness that lasts anywhere from two to four hours and is hydrating over time.

There was a strong, mirror-like shine across the shades that was very reminiscent of the prior Glossimer formula. There was a faint floral scent, and with some shades, I got a subtle taste of perfume. The doe foot applicator was more unique (at least, to me) with a very curved edge that was great for my bottom lip while flipping it gave me a more paddle-shaped edge that worked better for my top lip.

I would love to see Chanel introduce color descriptions on their retail website, especially for a formula like this where there can be such a huge difference in pigmentation (and finish) from one shade to the next that isn’t obvious from a product photo.

Rose Lamé (826)

Chanel Rose Lame (826) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a sparkling, light peach with subtle, pink undertones and warmer, golden shimmer and micro-sparkle. The consistency was lightly creamy with a touch of tackiness (when I touched it with my fingertip) that wasn’t too thick or too thin on my lid, so I had no trouble applying it with opaque color coverage in a single layer but it could easily be diffused and buffed out for a sheerer effect if desired. The eyeshadow stayed on well for almost 10 hours before creasing faintly, and there seemed to be just a smidgen of fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.14 oz. - $257.14 Per Ounce

Chanel describes the formula as a “smooth-textured cream shadow [that] glides on effortlessly” and is “long-wearing.” Overall, the consistency has moderate slip–emollient but not greasy or overly wet in feel–and feels more like a traditional cream eyeshadow than Chanel’s Illusion d’Ombres. They go on as a thin layer but have fairly good pigmentation. The formula dried down quite quickly leaving little time for blending or diffusing edges, even when working one eye at a time, which was where I struggled. I think some of them tended to work better as lid colors and using something else for a more diffused/blended out crease color. They did, however, wear impeccably for as long as fourteen hours on me–no creasing, fading, or flaking.

No. 5

Chanel No. 5 Rouge Allure Velvet ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a rich red with subtle, cool undertones and a satin finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a smooth, velvety texture that was incredibly lightweight and thin without feeling clingy. The color applied evenly across my lips and never dragged or tugged on them during application. It wore well for over six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$37.00/0.12 oz. - $308.33 Per Ounce

The Rouge Allure Velvet formula is supposed to be a "non-drying matte lipstick" with "intensely rich, long-wearing colour" and has a "velvet matte finish." Over time, I felt like the formula has improved and is actually non-drying (the original launch did not wear well on me) to lightly drying (seen more in shades that have lasted six to eight hours). The pigmentation varies from shade to shade but is usually semi-opaque to opaque with a semi-matte to satin finish. The texture had a velvety, glide-on feel that doesn't feel particularly creamy or wet, yet the lipstick is comfortable to wear over the four to six hours it typically lasts for. Like most Chanel lip products, they have a rosy scent but no discernible taste.

Le Lion de Chanel

Chanel Le Lion de Chanel Lie Signe du Lion Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, golden peach with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a moderate sheen that intensified to more metallic when worn at full coverage. Per the brand, they said to “build coverage for a more intense highlighting effect,” which was fairly accurate; I’d just say it was more of a moderate glow at semi-sheer to medium coverage, not “subtle” as suggested. The powder was smooth to the touch, denser and firmer but not stiff or difficult to diffuse and blend out on my skin. I would recommend using a moderately dense blush or highlighting brush to pick up product from the pan, though. It applied evenly to bare skin and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before it started to fade on me.

Quintessence (440)

Chanel Quintessence (440) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a mostly matte finish. There was faint pearl I could see more in the pan than I could see in the swatch, and I didn’t notice any of it on my cheeks! It had medium, buildable pigmentation–and the brand markets their blushes as buildable–with a very finely-milled powder that was slightly powdery in the pan. It applied evenly and diffused well without having to work at it. The finish was definitely matte on my skin, and it did not seem to darken over time (which is an issue with some matte powders). On me, it wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$45.00/0.17 oz. - $264.71 Per Ounce

The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic” with a “flattering radiance” and “silky texture.” The pigmentation ranges from semi-sheer to fully opaque, depending on technique and skin tone, but it seemed exactly as described–buildable–without having to pile it on or spend too long sheering it out. The formula has an extremely smooth, silky consistency that blends out beautifully on the skin. Most shades wear around eight hours on me.
