Deep

Chanel Deep Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a medium-dark, reddish brown with warm undertones and a fine, golden micro-shimmer. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the skin. The texture was smooth, silky, and slightly powdery in the pan but applied well to my skin–even the drier areas–and had a subtle sheen. It wore well for just over eight hours on me.

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.

Light

Chanel Light Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour ($58.00 for 0.42oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had medium, buildable color payoff that sat well on the skin. The consistency was incredibly soft, smooth, and a little dusty in the pan, but I felt like it did not apply well to drier skin (my arm is drier, my cheeks are more normal-to-dry) and had a tendency to sheer out quite a bit without building up. If I applied it over just-applied liquid foundation, the powder went on more smoothly and was more noticeable. This shade should work better on very fair complexions for either bronzing or highlighting as well as light skin tones for highlighting–in photos, it didn’t show up at all, but in person I could detect it just barely on my skin. The powder seemed to last about eight hours on me.

Original

Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base ($50.00 for 1.00 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a barely-there golden pearl. It’s a lighter bronzer, which would make it more suitable for fair to light-medium complexions but is likely to get lost on medium and deeper skin tones–I wish it was available in more shades.

The formula is described as a “light cream-gel bronzer” that gives a “sun-bathed look” that can be worn on its own or “over or under” foundation. The consistency was denser, not at all spongy, and smooth like a gel but thinner like a cream product. Initially, there was a touch of dewiness as the product dried down, but within a minute or so, the product dried down and had a more satin-to-matte finish–not quite matte but not luminous or glossy at all. It was easy to buff along the edges of the face for an all-over warmth or applied more heavily to the cheeks. It had good pigmentation, which was buildable to true-to-pan coverage or easily sheered out for barely-there warmth. I felt like it had a more visible effect over foundation or over bare skin, and it worked well in either instance. Unless one wears a very, very sheer coverage foundation, it was largely lost when worn underneath a foundation.

Chanel Fragola, Confusion, Caractere Rouge Coco Glosses

Fragola

Chanel Fragola Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is muted, medium coral-red with warm undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage that went on decently, but it could have been a touch more even. The gloss felt very smooth, gel-like, and plush on the lips. This shade lasted for three hours and was hydrating over time.

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.

Melted Honey

Chanel Melted Honey Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a light gold with light gold and medium gold pearl. The base color of the gloss had semi-sheer coverage that lightened and warmed up my natural lip color. For such a light shade, it actually applied rather evenly and had just a smidgen of settling on my lower lip. The texture was smooth, comfortable to wear, and hydrating with just a touch of tackiness. It lasted for three hours on me.

Sparkling Red

Chanel Sparkling Red Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a muted, raspberry red with pink and gold sparkle. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage–enough that there was a noticeable tint to the lips but the natural lip color came through quite a bit. The shimmery bits were definitely along the size of true sparkle, so I did feel them slightly as I wore the gloss, and there was a smidgen of color visible in my deeper lip lines (not truly noticeable from a normal viewing distance). The gloss portion felt smooth overall, though, and it was comfortable to wear over the three hours it lasted on me. The formula also seemed hydrating to me.

Editor’s Note: Sparkling Red appears not to exist in the Rouge Coco Gloss range. I’ve sent an email to Chanel to find out if Sparkling Red is a future shade or not the final name (and if not, then what is the final name).
