We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Are the pans blush-sized or traditional Chanel eyeshadow sized? If the latter, I would think it would be tricky trying to use these as blushes (and they wouldn’t last as long as traditional blushes). I’m confused. These (like the earlier Tom Ford shadows you showed) just aren’t colours I wear on my eyes.

Thanks for this. I was only able to see Caractere in person, and it was too dark for my tones. I’m on the fence about Tendresse; it could be useful and convenient for travel if it works for blushes, highlight, and eyeshadow. It’s still on my list to see in person.

I bought caractere and LOVE it. I have used the shimmer as a highlight and a couple of the other colors as blushes. My sister used the whole palette for an eye + cheek look and it was very pretty. There is not much fallout with these products so you do kind of have to work at it , but it means lovely depth/build up for a natural look. I’m very tempted to buy tendresse. Eagerly awaiting your review!

I tried them both and returned them. I love the idea but the color story is just odd for spring and summer and I had to work too hard to get them to work for my skin tone and coloring for the price. I knew they were not something I would reach for frequently. I’ll look forward to your review.
