Re: Chanel Updates

I got the Coups De Minuit highlighter and illusion d'ombre. I haven't tried the highlighter on my face yet, but it swatches very nicely, it feels very silky. The color it gives is a soft pinkish highlight on my skin tone. I believe it will give a subtle glow that is much more sheen than shimmer or glitter. Im a fan of soft highlighters since I've got some rough skin texture.


The illusion d'ombre is such a lovely color. And it feels extra soft in the pot. Maybe it has just been a while since I've had a brand new one, but I think it feels smoother than previous ones. With the first swatch, it produces a nice dusty eggplant color, it layers nicely for more intense purple/burgundy color. I don't have anything quite like it.. IMG_2471.jpgThe row of swatches is (L-R) Urban Decay Rockstar, Tom Ford Enchanted dark color, Kiko Metallic Shine Eyeshadow in Strong Chocolate, Maybelline Pomegranate Punk, Chanel Elcosion dark color, one swatch of Rouge Noir, three layers of Rouge noirIMG_2461.jpg

This is one layer vs three layersIMG_2464.jpg

Haven't quite figured out how to photograph highlighters!!! There is a finger swatch and brush swatch between the black lines.


Re: Chanel Updates

Thanks so much for all of those swatches. I really want that eye color. 

Re: Chanel Updates

Its really pretty! I think I need the lipstick to go with it!

Re: Chanel Updates

We should share makeup...

Re: Chanel Updates

Gorgeous!  Tempting!  I might get the eye color (and that highlighter is so lovely).


Re: Chanel Updates

I got both the nail colors yesterday - Vamp and Rose Fusion. I very rarely even paint my nails, but these colors were so pretty and I loved how they looked on Karen from MBB and Temptalia. I did swatch the Rouge Noir lipstick and the eyeliner - both of which left me mostly underwhelmed. I will check out the lipstick sometime again next month.


But actually, Chanel has released an interim collection called Rouge Allure. The lipsticks are very very pretty! 

Re: Chanel Updates

I'll check out the lipsticks!  Thanks!

Re: Chanel Updates

I placed an order from Von Maur for the illusions de ombres, the eyeliner in Rouge Noir, and one of the new glossimiers - the rose colored one. I won't get my order until the first week of Nov since they are having a GWP and a Chanel raffle so I had the SA hold my order. The eyeliner looks like a burgundy/black - I'm excited to try it out. The gloss is very girly - pink with sparkles; a good topper for the holidays. They hadn't got the eyeshadow quad in yet so I don't know what that looks like in person.

Re: Chanel Updates

Niki, do you know if the gwp will be online, or is it in store only?

Re: Chanel Updates

It's in store only (I think) and its a Von Maur tote, but usually they throw in some pretty decent Chanel samples wrapped up in a nice little sheer material bag tied with a Chanel ribbon. The raffle is in store and I'm not sure what the prizes are - I was just told a raffle and since I never win I didn't ask. They don't sell Chanel on their website - you have to call a store to place an order if you're not near one. Free FedEx shipping and gift wrap though!

Re: Chanel Updates

Thx Niki! 

Re: Chanel Updates

Thanks for the thoughts!  The eyeliner looks gorgeous.  Darker than the illusions de ombres?  I so don't need more makeup but this collection is so tempting!

Re: Chanel Updates

depending on how light you apply eyeliner (obviously don't gouge the eye area) I'd say it's darker.

Re: Chanel Updates

Thanks!  These are lovely...

Re: Chanel Updates

I just got some pieces last night. On first swatch, the highlighter is decently pigmented with a pinky, cool undertone. I love all of their illusion de ombres and this one in Rouge Noir is no exception. It's a pigmented purple that's beautiful for the vampy look. I got a few nail polishes but only cause I needed a staple dark polish. But they're nothing to right home about. Let me know if you want some swatches. ☺️

Re: Chanel Updates

I'm considering the illusion de ombres.  If you get a chance I would LOVE to see swatches!  Thanks!
