Chanel Burnt Coral (390) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a dark copper with warm, red undertones and faint gold and copper pearl. The consistency was moderately dusty, and I did not expect much out of it as a result, but it was an instance where the application was a lot better in practice. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with minimal effort, and lasted for a solid eight hours.

So Close (380)

Chanel So Close (380) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright (nearly neon!) orange with warm, reddish undertones and a natural finish. It seemed more matte in the pan, but the more I diffused and blended out the powder on the skin, the more natural the finish seemed to appear–not quite matte, not quite satin. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty in the pan but did not look dry or powdery on the skin.

I actually found that it looked less orange and more pink-coral when worn at semi-sheer to medium coverage, so keep that in mind if you’re really on the hunt for something more orange applied. I had no trouble blending out the powder, and I felt like it wasn’t too difficult to use a lighter hand or less-dense brush to get more buildable application but would not describe it as buildable to begin with (which is how Chanel’s blushes are marketed). This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

No. 04

Chanel No. 04 Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($37.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, medium orange-red with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied smoothly across the lips. The texture was incredibly lightweight with a touch of slip but adhered well to the lips for long-wear. There was the slightest amount of product in my deeper lip lines, but the shine and vibrancy of the color made it difficult to detect at a normal viewing distance (just in the close-up photos). It wore well for five hours and was hydrating over time.

Trait de Caractere

Chanel Trait de Caractere Eyeshadow Palette ($70.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a smoky, earthy set of shades housed in a black compact. I wanted to like it, as it was a more unusual set of shades for the holiday season, but the formula is just so powdery, prone to sheering out, and short-wearing that it left me incredibly disappointed. More often than not, Chanel’s 5-pan palettes are unimpressive, and it always makes me wonder why they didn’t just make a quad instead, where the formula is stronger.
