Re: Chanel Updates

What is the best Chanel lipstick? I bought a Rogue Coco and it doesn't stay on for more than an hour. But I do love the way it feels. 

Re: Chanel Updates

I adsolutely adore the Rouge Allure Velvet formula - long lasting, but not too drying.  L'Amoureuse is my favorite!

Re: Chanel Updates

Yes, I feel your pain regarding the Rouge Coco Shine-I constantly apply mine because it doesn't stay on, but it looks pretty. I'm a gloss/glossy gal so I actually like the Rouge Allure gloss..

Re: Chanel Updates

I bought several of the pieces from the Fall 2015 collection, and I can't believe how much I love them all! (Why am I surprised?)

That's one thing that I really love about Chanel.  I look at their products and think, "That will never work on me," and voila, it does!

The blush, Alezane, works for me as a healthy, outdoorsy look.  It could probably work as a bronzer for me if I apply it lightly enough.  It looked a little too sparkly on my forehead (visible sparkles while looking in the bathroom mirror, so you know they would be extreme if I were outside,) but they weren't as noticeable on my cheeks.

The Rouge Coco Shine Temeraire, was beautiful, with enough brown to make the red wearable.  It packs a lot of pigment; it was almost too much for me.  Melancolie is a nice, everyday shade.

Rouge Allure in Pensive may be my favorite of the bunch.  It's a great nude, and I'll bet it will work for a lot of people.

The Illusion Ombre Velvet Fleur de Pierre is the dark, cool gray I've been looking for for a long time!  I am so excited.  No visible sparkles.  It pairs beautifully with the Stylo Yeux in Feuilles.  The Stylo Yeux in Pomme de Pin  is a black-brown.  It's okay; I wish it was a little more intense.

I should mention I am a Color IQ of 1R05.  MUFE's Ultra HD foundation in R260, Pink Beige, matches me perfectly.  That's why I'm stunned that these colors look so great on me.

Re: Chanel Updates

I'm glad to hear about the illusion d'ombre! I've been eyeing (no pun intended) the 2 new colors and 1 re-release Smiley Happy

Re: Chanel Updates

I have the re-release from before...and love it.  

Re: Chanel Updates

I have been eyeing this collection!  Seems so wearable! I really appreciate the input!

Re: Chanel Updates

Meganlisa - I totally forgot to tell you I wound up not keeping the blush from the fall line. It looked too much like a bronzer on my porcelain skin plus because of the sparkles (like makeupmad stated) I felt like a young teenage girl playing with makeup and I didn't like it. The other main reason I didn't keep it is I purchased the bronzer from the summer line (like the one pictured in the originating post) so I felt like I didn't need what is essentially another bronzer (trying to reign in what I buy). I love the red lippie (termeraire) in rouge coco shine enough to go back and purchase a second tube since its LE though! It truly is a color that I don't have anything else in my stash that I could duplicate. It's going to come in handy around the holidays and date night - so pretty!

Re: Chanel Updates

That helps!  I'm really eyeing this collection....I just ordered the Nars ltd matte red....but the shine might work...I haven't decided yet.  I feel like this collection and the new smaller Nars one are very wearable.  Appreciate the follow up.  I skipped the bronzer (but did some Guerlain so I don't need anything in that family either).

Choices...

Re: Chanel Updates

Must have Chataigne and Vert Obscur! Thanks for posting these! Smiley Happy 

Re: Chanel Updates

Oooohh pretty! Thanks for posting! Do you have a picture of the palette?

Re: Chanel Updates

Can someone help me figure out if the Chanel Mediterranee would be more of an illuminating powder or bronzer if I'm an light-medium to medium?

Re: Chanel Updates

Anny if it helps I wear the lightest shade in MJ genius gel. I purchased this bronzer and by no way does it show up as orange - which is hard for me to find so I was excited to get this. I originally tried using this as a contour (didn't work) it does give me a beautiful sun kissed look (with a light hand) without looking garish. The formula is fantastic BTW. Going off if you're medium/light skin tone I would say it would be more of a bronzer. I highly recommend this product, but I don't think it would work on deeper skin tones. Just my opinion - nordies does have a good return policy if all else fails!

Re: Chanel Updates

I'll give my two cents on it.  I am medium skin tone and it did not work for me at all.  When I applied it to my cheeks (I didn't wear any other blush since I wanted to see how it would look alone) it made me look like I was wearing 2 different shades of foundation.  It was so yellowy orange on me.  So it went back.  I suggest you go to the store without blush or highlighter on and have an SA apply it on you.  Then you can see if you like it or not.  

Re: Chanel Updates

Hi Anny--this works as a light bronzer for me but I can probably wear it lightly all over. I love that the shimmer is very subtle and you can't see it in sunlight. It's a beautiful glow. I love it and bought it!

 

I went to the Nordstrom event this weekend and had my make up done at the Chanel counter. He used it as a bronzer on me and then put on some blush as well. I'm wearing 2 of the cream eyeshadow sticks and the orange lipstick from the summer collection.

(sorry for bad pics, they weren't taken to be shared since I was tired but I thought it would be helpful)

Re: Chanel Updates

I don't think they are bad pictures of you. You look lovely but stop enabling me lol. I'm trying to recover from Tom Ford summer collection. Smiley Happy

Re: Chanel Updates

I also bought 2 of the cream eyeshadow sticks :Laurier Rose  (wearing it in the pics above) and Azulejo. Both are soo beautiful! I read that someone used the blue powder from TF Midnight sea on top of Azulejo and that it was gorgeous so I had to buy it to see for my self. lol
