Premieres Fleurs

Chanel Premieres Fleurs Harmony of Powders ($70.00 for 0.45 oz.) is a very pale pink with warm undertones and a soft shimmer. Per the brand, it’s supposed to be a “highlighting powder” that will have a “subtle, luminous glow.” The powder has three strips of color–pale white, pale peach, and muted rose–and the first two were pigmented but the last one (which had the most depth) was weaker with a sheerer coverage and slightly firmer texture. When I applied all the shades together (swirled), I didn’t notice any stiffness or difficulty in either picking up the product or blending it out on my cheekbones. It lasted for eight hours on me.

There was only a faint hint of pink on my skin tone, and anyone deeper than I would likely see no tint just a faint sheen, which I did find to be more white-based so I don’t think it’s a product that will work for a lot of skin tones. For someone with very fair skin who has been looking for a subtle, luminous pink barely-there blush, it could work.

Warm Gold (20)

Chanel Warm Gold (20) Highlighting Powder ($58.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a soft, golden pearl shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a luminous sheen that was moderate–definitely not a subtle glow, but it wasn’t metallic, foil-like, or sparkly. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and easy to work with on the cheeks, as it blended out with little effort, though the surface of the powder had a denser, firmer feel (but it wasn’t stiff!). It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.30 oz. - $193.33 Per Ounce

Chanel described the powder as having a “sheer, radiant finish,” and I’d expect “sheer” to indicate more of a veil of radiance–it is not the clearest description. There are noticeable sparkles/micro-glitters in both shades released, so I would consider it suitable for someone who likes sparkle and more intense highlighters. The powders applied, blended, and lasted well on my skin.

Chanel Neapolis: New City Collection is new for spring and features a nine-pan eyeshadow palette along with new lip colors, eyeliners, blush, and polishes (not purchased). I’ve just finished reviewing all of the products I purchased from the collection, so now we can see how everything rated from best to worst!

I was definitely most impressed by the Affresco Eyeshadow Palette, and I thought it was a fun, brighter offering for a season where we typically see more muted and washed out shades for. There were several lovely lip colors but all in the same shades I’ve seen Chanel do quite a few times, so they didn’t make my heart go pitter-patter. I’ve found Mare-Chiaro to work well for brightening up any springy eye look, but I do have a fondness for green eyeliner!

Chanel Affresco Les 9 Ombres Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($70.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a new, limited edition eyeshadow palette for spring/summer and features nine shades. I was extremely surprised that it actually performed well–Chanel has not typically impressed me with their larger eyeshadow palettes, and then given the brighter hues on this collection’s palette, I was even more wary–and wasn’t as expensive as I would have thought (for Chanel). The majority of the eyeshadows were soft, pigmented (semi-opaque to opaque), blendable, and long-wearing (around eight hours).

Chanel Spring 2018 Rouge Coco Glosses

Chanel Sibylla (786) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium, pinky coral with subtle pearl and a high-shine finish. It had medium coverage, which did not build up, and a creamier finish that resulted in slight color getting into a few of my deeper lip lines (though it wasn’t noticeable from a normal viewing distance). The gloss had a lightweight feel and was easy to spread across the lips for even application. It had a smooth, gel-like consistency that was comfortable and lightly hydrating over the four hours this lasted for.

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.

Chanel Entusiasta (164) Rouge Allure Ink Liquid Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.20 oz.) is a bright, medium red with warm, orange undertones and a soft sheen. It’s a liquid lipstick, which went on with a thin, watery consistency that developed into a lightly tacky, more gel-like finish (but still thin and not truly gel-like, as it lacked the plushness of a gel). It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly accross the lips and didn’t settle heavily into my lip lines. It was comfortable to wear during the seven and a half hours it lasted for.
