Chanel Rouge Majestueux & Rouge Noble Rouge Allure Lip Colours Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Rouge Majestueux (847) Chanel Rouge Majestueux (847) Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($45.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, pinky-red with subtle, cool undertones and a natural sheen. The lipstick had good color payoff (though not full coverage) that adhered well to my lips in a smooth, fluid stroke. The texture felt smooth, velvety, and thin but wasn’t clingy, so it was comfortable to apply and to wear. It wore well for five hours and was moisturizing while worn.…

Rouge Delicieux (807) Chanel Rouge Delicieux (807) Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($45.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging. The texture was very lightweight and looked more emollient and shiny than you’d expect based on the feel of it–more velvety without the true slip of a cream finish. It wore well…

Chanel Muted Fuchsia & Chestnut Rouge Allure Velvet Extremes Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Muted Fuchsia (124) Chanel Muted Fuchsia (124) Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a deep berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had good color payoff in one stroke, which applied evenly and wasn’t prone to emphasizing my natural lip texture (something that I’ve found to occur more often with these more velvet-matte type formulas). The lipstick had a very lightweight feel on my lips, and there was glide but it didn’t feel wet or…

It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to bare skin. The texture felt smooth, silky, and cream-like; it felt like a 40-60 cream-powder mix by touch but it blended out with the ease of a powder and melted onto my skin like a cream. It wore…

Chanel Metal Peach Eclat Magnetique de Chanel Illuminating Powder Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Metal Peach Chanel Metal Peach Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium peach with balanced, warmer undertones between pink and orange. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-powder feel to it–it felt silky to the touch, had a bit of slip, but it applied and performed more like a powder overall. The highlighter sank and “melted” onto my skin as I buffed and blended out the powder on my cheeks, which ensured it never emphasized my…

Chanel Noir Supreme (332) Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Noir Supreme (332) Chanel Noir Supreme (332) Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) features four, deeper, smokier shades ranging from olive green to muted red. The formula used in this quad wasn’t the same as other quads in the line; this felt like a cream-powder hybrid, though they were more powder-like as they were thin and had just a touch of the slip I’d identify as belonging to a cream product. As they were deeper shades,…

Chanel Blanc Graphique (949) Stylo Yeux Eyeliner Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Blanc Graphique (949) Chanel Blanc Graphique (949) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($33.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a pale beige with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It almost looked like a creamy, grayish beige to me at times, but the yellowness in the pencil itself made it seem warmer overall. The texture was smooth, lightly creamy without being too emollient, so while it glided on comfortably (even on the water line), it didn’t seem to slide around easily.…

Chanel Carte Blanche & Penombre Ombre Premiere Top Coats Reviews & Swatches – Beauty Article

Carte Blanche (317) Chanel Carte Blanche (317) Ombre Premiere Top Coat ($36.00 for 0.08 oz.) is a pale white with neutral-to-warm undertones and a sparkling finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, as expected, that worked well for layering on top of other eyeshadows to add sparkle or applied all over the lid for a sparkly wash of product. The texture felt lightly emollient but was flakier–like I could sense a bit of powder in the base but there was a moderate…

Chanel, You’re Rockin’ My World at the Moment! – Beauty Article

A little Chanel never hurt anyone. Heya, friend. I’m sitting here at my desk with a rumbly tumbly because I’m waiting on an air conditioning specialist to stop by for an estimate. (Side note: Phase one of Operation Casa Mini Remodel is officially underway.) Two things I’ve learned so far about home remodels and home repair projects: Anything that can break, will break, and surprise! — everything breaks at the same time. Waiting on the people who can fix those…

Liquid Lipstick Love – Makeup and Beauty Blog – Beauty Article

These are fabulous! I’m tempting fate whenever I wear lipstick with white clothes, but I like to live on the edge, mwahahahaha! A rebel (not really) in Chanel Luxuriant I’ve been all about the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink liquid lipsticks ($38 each), man. They came out a few years back, and they’re still a fixture in the permanent collection. Thank goodness for that, too, because there’s really nothing else quite like them. They’re like a shy first kiss…and you can…

You know when you get something new that you really like but you want to save it for a special occasion, but then Mother’s Day comes and goes, your birthday comes and goes, and you realize that if you keep waiting for a big moment to bust it out, you’ll just end up waiting forever, so one day you just go for it and use it on a random Wednesday? Well, I’ve been saving this gorgeous neutral eyeshadow palette from…

Chanel Les Indispensables Les 9 Ombres Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Les Indispensables Chanel Les Indispensables Les 9 Ombres Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette ($70.00 for 0.22 oz.) is a new, limited edition set of more muted neutrals across multiple finishes–mostly matte and satin with a few more pearly/frosted shades thrown in. There was a decent mix of lighter and more mid-tone shades, but the palette could have benefited from at least one deeper shade (as #7, which is the deepest, isn’t that deep!). I’d recommend pairing this with your favorite eyeshadow primer…

Chanel Lumieres Naturelles Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches – Beauty Article

Lumieres Naturelles Chanel Lumieres Naturelles Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a soft, warm-toned neutral quad featuring three hues of light to mid-tone brown and a dirty gold. I wish the lighter, matte brown was more blendable (it really should be for the color it is and how it fits in the color story), while the mid-tone shimmery brown could have held its intensity better. These seemed to fade a little faster than some of…
