Bourgeoisie

Chanel Bourgeoisie Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy mauve with neutral-to-cool undertones and a moderate amount of light pink sparkle. It had semi-sheer pigmentation that went on somewhat unevenly. I felt like it was easy to get “lines” any time I pressed my lips together as the gloss had a creamier, more slippery feel on the lips compared to some shades. I could feel some of the shimmer/sparkle on the lips but only occasionally. The color lasted for three and a half hours and was hydrating on me.

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 five 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.

Jardins de Lumieres

Chanel Jardins de Lumieres Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a more muted, smoky shades of deep olive green, golden peach, mid-tone gray, and dark plum. It’s a new, limited edition palette for spring/summer that uses Chanel’s “vibrant, pigment-rich formula” that is “long-lasting” and has a “soft, smooth texture.” The color combination was interesting, and it’s one I’d wear again, but I wish the shades were more pigmented and stayed more true-to-color applied to the lid.

Jardins Eclatants

Chanel Jardins Eclatants Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad ($61.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a warm-toned, neutral palette that featured a pink-peach, peach, warm brown, and deep, coppery brown. It’s a new, limited edition palette for spring/summer that uses Chanel’s “vibrant, pigment-rich formula” that is “long-lasting” and has a “soft, smooth texture.” The colors are definitely dupable, so I see this working best for someone who prefers Chanel’s formula, is looking for an all-in-one quad, or uses these types of shades often. The palette had semi-opaque to opaque pigmentation, seven to eight hour wear, and was very easy to apply and blend out.

Tweed Coralline

Chanel Tweed Coralline Les Tissages de Chanel Blush ($48.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a bright, medium coral with a hint of pink and a satin finish. The finish was naturally luminous without reading shimmery, frosted, or sparkly.

Very long-time readers may remember this blush type releasing many moons ago–I feel like it has been ages since I have seen this pattern emerge from Chanel’s archives! The formula is described as a “sheer blush harmony” that is “woven with shimmering powder.” I’d love to know if the person who wrote that description actually tried either of the shades just made available, because they are anything but sheer. In fact, Coralline is intensely pigmented where a little went a long way–I would highly recommend using a lighter hand or a more feathery, less dense blush brush when working with these to control coverage. The texture was soft, smooth without being dusty, and blended easily on my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.

If you normally love pigmented blushes, I think it might be right up your alley! If you were hoping for the “sheer blush harmony” Chanel described, the formula’s pigmentation level may be overwhelming.

Energie

Chanel Energie Rouge Allure Gloss ($37.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.) is a bright pop of orange-red with warm undertones and faint gold pearl.

The formula is supposed to have the “colour intensity of a lipstick” with the “lacquered shine of a lipgloss” that is “long-wearing.” It had semi-opaque pigmentation and felt primarily like a lipgloss. There was a touch of color that pulled into my deeper lip lines, but the color applied evenly and did not appear streaky. The texture was moderately tacky, spread decently (but this particular shade seemed tackier to me than I remember the formula being), and comfortable to wear, as it was hydrating over time. It wore well for five and a half hours on me.

Plisse Lumiere de Chanel

Chanel Plisse Lumiere de Chanel Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a soft, metallic sheen.

It’s described as a “powder highlighter [that] adds an ethereal touch of radiance.” The powder had good color coverage with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture; I felt like I had good control over whether I wanted a more subdued effect or an intense, metallic finish. It didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture, even when worn at higher coverage. It’s a lovely highlighter for someone who doesn’t already have several of the previously released limited edition (or several permanent options, at this point in the highlighting game!). If you have similar coloring to me, you may find it is “your skin but better” as it didn’t add noticeable color, just shine and shimer. The highlighter wore well for just over eight hours on me.
