Chanel has brought us four new shades of Aqualumière Gloss in the Jardin de Camélias collection ($29.50 each, 6 ml/0.20 fl oz). Eau de Rose 86 is a pale silvery pink, Rosace 87 is a shimmery light peachy pink, Pink Pivoine 88 is a sheer coral pink and Baie Rose 89 is a cool pink. All the shades are extremely sheer and offer a slight hint of shimmer or tint to the lips. They have a high shine smooth glossy finish.
Lip swatches, for skintone reference, I currently use Tom Ford Foundation Sticks in 04 Bisque and 05 Natural mixed with Dolce & Gabbana Powder Foundation in Warm 100 on top:
Comparison swatches below to: Chanel Colbri Aqualumiere Gloss (discontinued), MAC Nectarsweet Cremesheen Glass, Chanel Bliss Glossimer, Dior Bed of Roses Addict, Bobbi Brown Pink Lily (discontinued), Tom Ford Sugar Pink Gloss, Chanel Imaginaire Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (discontinued).
Overall beautiful fresh colors that are lovely for spring. I wouldn’t call them must-haves since there is very little color payoff. These are extremely sheer glosses but that is expected with the Aqualumiere Gloss formula.
Eau de Rose 86, Rosace 87, Pink Pivoine 88, Baie Rose 89 are currently exclusive to Chanel.com. Will you be purchasing any of these? If you already ordered, what did you think?
