Les 4 Rouges Yeux Et Joues Eyeshadow and Blush Palette
This spring Chanel has launched oversized palettes with powders formulated for both eyes and cheeks. There are two varations this season, I have the lighter Les 4 Rouges Yeux Et Joues Eyeshadow and Blush Palette in 957 Tendresse. This has four powders with sheer-medium pigment.
Shades include a light shimmery rose highlighter, a soft tan satin for bronzer/contour, a soft watermelon pink blush and a deeper reddish powder. Powders have a medium texture – not super soft but not stiff. Overall look is soft but colors can be layered.
I like this on the cheeks but also found I could wear on the eyes. The tan shade is just slightly deeper than my skin tone and warms up the skin. On me it’s a barely there kind of color but does add a nice touch of warmth.
I’m wearing the Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Touch Foundation in B30 and B40 mixed. On the lips I am wearing the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Lip Balm in Light. For the eyes I also added a little bit of the Les 4 Ombres in Candeur Et Experience and Noir Allure Mascara in Black.

Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colors
There are two new shades of the Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colors in Rouge Cuir and Watermelon and they’re beautiful! Watermelon is a bright vibrant pink jelly shade. It has a transparent finish so I used 3 coats to get full coverage. Rouge Cuir is a pretty dusty warm rose with opaque coverage.
Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick
This collection brings us a new Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick in Rouge Frais. You girls know I’m usually not a fan of the dewy cheek sticks because I live in hot and humid Florida and they usually do not last. This shade however is the prettiest Baume Essentiel I’ve tried. It’s a bright red shimmer in the tube but has a transparent sheer pink finish on the cheeks. I also tried it on the lips and it’s a really pretty shimmery red when used as a lip balm.
Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner
The spring launch features the Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in Or Rose. I feel like this may have been a color from an older launch many years ago but am not 100% sure the shade is the same. I think this year’s has a different number and is more of a true rose gold. It’s stunning. As a liner it’s subtle on me but I also tried it as an all over eyeshadow and think it’s just beautiful.
Noir Allure Mascara
Last is a look at the Noir Allure Mascara in Rouge Grenat. I love this mascara formula but red tinted mascaras aren’t really my thing. This formula coats the lashes and is great at lengthening. The red is very pigmented and does coat all the lashes with a reddish shimmer color. I still prefer the classic black shade but if you like tinted mascaras I think this is a fun twist.
Overall thoughts: I love the Les 4 Rouges Palette in Tendresse. I think it’s pretty, wearable and different from what I already own. I think the pink highlighter is really pretty! The Le Vernis in Watermelon is a must for me, I think it will be really fun for spring/summer.
What do you think about this launch? Will you be trying any of the palettes or other new launches?
