This year’s Chanel Le Blanc makeup collection is a stunning one! The Chanel La Fleur Et L’eau Collection is currently available at Chanel.com and today I finally have swatches of everything! The colors have a soft wash with pastels for eyes and bold colors for lips.
- Rouge Coco Flash ($38 each) in Eau de Rose and Ondee
- Rouge Allure Ink Fusion ($38 each) in Fleur de Lotus and Pivoine
- Camelias D’eau Lip Palette ($60) four colors in a compact
- Les 4 Ombres ($65 each) in Au Fil des Fleurs and Au Fil de L’eau
- Gloss Lumiere ($36) in Miroir D’eau
- Joues Contraste ($45) in Rose Petillant
- Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops ($50)
- Le Vernis ($28 each) in Fleur de Pecher and Petale
The lip colors are the stand outs for me with new Rouge Coco Flash colors in Ondee (sheer bright coral) and Eau de Rose (sheer rose). I think both are must-haves in my opinion, I especially love the glossy rose color! Both have a sheer smooth finish with high shine. There are two Rouge Allure Ink Fusions in Fleur de Lotus which is a bold coral and Pivoine which is a bold raspberry color. Both are fluid and lightweight in texture but since both are bolds they cover the entire lip and apply smoothly.
There’s a Lip Palette called Camelias D’eau which comes with four colors that are in an embossed camelia pattern. Colors are bold classics with a bold bright raspberry, bright fuchsia, soft rosewood with a slight shimmer and blue-based red cream. Colors have medium coverage but can be built for full coverage. Each color has a slightly glossy finish. The compact does come with a tiny lip brush which is super cute!
Swatches alongside some of their newer Lip Liners in coordinating colors that launched last month:
There are two Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow palettes in this collection which have a soft washed pastel theme. I purchased both of these to review the complete collection even though the color scheme really isn’t something I gravitate towards. Au Fil Des Fleurs has a more lilac lavender pink vibe with soft shimmers. Au Fil de L’eau on the other hand has a more steel grey blue vibe. Both palettes have excellent pigment with smooth texture. They glide on flawlessly and stay put once on the lids.
Joues Constraste Blush
There is one new Joues Contraste blush called Rose Petillant. This is in the baked version which I’m normally not a fan of but this one surprised me with really good color payoff. It has a soft shimmer to it but once on the skin it’s more of a satiny matte soft pink. Lasting power is excellent!
Glow + Highlighter
The Chanel Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops highlighter has some of the prettiest shimmers I’ve ever seen! This is a liquid highlighter that has a soft light pink pearly sheen. It’s lightweight and blends easily onto the skin. It gives the skin a light opalescent glow. If you blend into foundation or use as a base you can definitely sheer it out to wear all over. I prefer it as a highlighter.
Also for the cheeks is a new Gloss Lumiere Multi-Use Top Coat in Miroir D’Eau. This is a translucent glossy opal that flashes pink and blue in a very subtle way. So far I’ve only liked using this on the lips as a soft gloss. It’s fairly sheer so the effect is a barely there glow. You can use on eyes or cheeks too but I don’t usually use glossy products anywhere but the lips.
A few swatch comparisons to a Chanel Poudre Lumiere in White Opal (REVIEW, sharper and more contrast with the duo chrome), Estee Lauder x Danielle Lauder Act IV Spotlight Highlighter (REVIEW, more pigment and more lavender), Chanel Eclat du Desert Powder Highlighter (REVIEW, also more visible shimmer and warmer pink):
The two Le Vernis colors in Fleur de Pecher and Petale are both also must-haves. Fleur de Pecher is a smooth shimmery pearly rose pink with noticeable silver shimmer. I love that it applies smoothly and doesn’t show any brush strokes! Petale is a perfect soft pink cream. I applied both with two coats to get full coverage.
Four Looks, Look 1 with Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Au Fil Des Fleur, Rouge Coco Flash in Eau de Rose and Joues Contraste in Rose Petillant:
Look 2 with Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in Ondee, Joues Contraste in Petale, Rosy Light Drops
Look 3 with Chanel Joues Contraste in Rose Petillant and Rouge Allure Ink Fusion in Pivoine
Look 4 with Rouge Allure Ink Fusion in Fleur de Lotus, Joues Contraste in Rose Petillant and the Rosy Light Drops
My top favorites are the two Le Vernis Nail Polishes, Rosy Light Drops and both Rouge Coco Flash colors. I do think everything is lovely and quality is top notch! The quads are a miss for me mainly because I don’t wear pastels on the eyes but quality is excellent. I think the blush has surprisingly good pigment for the baked formula and I think it is an easy one to wear with many different colors.
