Perfect

Cover FX Perfect 6-Pan Highlighting Palette ($39.00 for 0.66 oz.) includes six powder highlighters housed in a slim, plastic compact. The formula is supposed to be “ultra silky” and “highly pigmented.” I’d argue that the texture of the shades included in the palette felt creamier and denser than the standalone powder highlighters by the same formula name, and I found myself enjoying the feel and look of these even more than the standalone formula. All six shades were blendable, pigmented, long-wearing, and flattering on–I was surprised at how metallic some of them appeared on my skin yet did not seem to bring attention to my natural texture.

Value

The Perfect Light Highlighting Powders retail for $34.00 and contain 0.28 oz. when purchased individually (only one shade in the set is available individually, though) or cost $121.43/oz. The palette contains $80.14 worth of product.

Silver Screen (822)

Chanel Silver Screen (822) Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a smoldering, medium-dark taupe with subtle, warm olive undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-opaque coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage by applying a second layer on top. The consistency was smooth, thin, and workable along the edges as a standalone eyeshadow. It wasn’t my favorite sheered out as the darker color did not appear as even when sheered out drastically. It lasted without creasing for 14 hours but had slight fallout after 10 hours of wear.

Chanel’s holiday collection will be available October 16th online and November 2017 at counters.

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.

Romance (784)

Chanel Romance (784) Rouge Coco Gloss ($30.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a medium red with neutral-to-cool undertones and a jelly-like finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that covered the lips fairly evenly, though it seemed like some color gathered in my lip lines but the mirror-like shine made that fade into the background to my eye. The gloss was smooth, non-tacky, and almost gel-like as it felt plusher and very comfortable on the lips. The color stayed on well for four and a half hours and was moisturizing over time.

Chanel’s holiday collection will be available October 16th online and November 2017 at counters.

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 Legendary Green (857) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a deep, forest green with subtle, cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single stroke, which was buildable to opaque coverage with two layers. The consistency was smooth and lightly creamy, so it glided across the skin without skipping or tugging but did not slide around or smudge. It wore well for nine hours on my lower lash line before starting to fade noticeably.

Chanel’s holiday collection will be available October 16th online and November 2017 at counters.

Formula Overview

$33.00/0.01 oz. - $3300.00 Per Ounce

The Stylo Yeux formula is supposed to be a “waterproof, smudge-proof” eyeliner with a “gentle, soft” texture. I gave up on this formula bit ago, as the majority of shades I had tried had a really firm, stiff, and painful-to-use texture, but new releases have much improved!

They are much, much creamier without being too wet, so they didn’t transfer or migrate easily. The formula was easy (and not painful!) to use even on my waterline. The eyeliners lasted nine hours or more on me.

Joya

Natasha Denona Joya Eyeshadow Palette 5 ($48.00 for 0.40 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday offering that features a new formula–the brand’s “cream-powder hybrid shadow.” The new formula is supposed to have “pigment-rich coverage of a cream” with the “long-lasting, crease-free wear of a powder.” From what I could tell, this just meant a slightly denser feel with less dustiness/powderiness but wasn’t anything outside of normal range in texture for a powder eyeshadow. Most of the shades had good, buildable pigmentation and were blendable on the lid with eight to nine hour wear and minor fallout (three shades are quite sparkly).

Nina

Tom Ford Beauty Nina Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer ($36.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium coral with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-sheer color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly across the lips and did not appear streaky. There was a very slight amount of product that gathered in my deeper lip lines but was not noticeable from a normal viewing distance. The texture was lightly emollient so it glided on nicely but was thin and lightweight. It lasted for two and a half hours on me and was lightly moisturizing.

Formula Overview

$36.00/0.07 oz. - $514.29 Per Ounce

The Lip Color Sheer formula is supposed to have a "semi-sheer effect" with a "creamy" and "hydrating" formula. They are a sheerer lip color, which may or may not be one's cup of tea; if you are looking for pigment, look elsewhere, but if you're someone who likes sheerer coverage, lightweight, hydrating textures, then it might be a formula for you. There are several shades in the range that have a more transformative effect, as they contain a lot of shimmer/sparkle or have a more duochrome or iridescent-like finish. There are others, typically deeper, richer hues (reds, berries, etc.) that are more medium coverage. The wear ranged a lot from as short as two hours to as long as five hours but most wore around three hours. The formula is lightly hydrating with a very lightweight feel on the lips. They are vanilla scented but have no discernible taste.
