Equinoxe de Chanel Collection Fall 2023 Beauty Collection

The Chanel Beauty Collection for Fall-Winter 2023 has arrived with the new Equinoxe de Chanel Collection. Everything has launched now at I have a look + swatches today covering a few pieces:

I don’t have every single color for the eyes or lips but I do have a 5 of the 6 new eyeshadows and 4 of the 6 new rouge coco blooms. The entire collection has medium to deep tones that feel like the fall season. At first glance I was worried everything would pull too dark and dramatic, but I was pleasantly surprised by a number of pieces. I think there are definitely some winners with this launch!

Douceur D’Equinoxe Powder Blush Harmony

There are two new powder blushes called the Douceur D’Equinoxe Powder Blush Harmony. I really appreciate how every season Chanel creates something special and unique. The embossed detail on their powders will disappear with use but these extra touches makes for a truly luxurious piece of art. These have two shades but with the design it’s pretty much a given that both will be mixed when you dip a brush into the powder.

Beige and Corail 797 is a warm orangey russet color. It has a very tiny bit of shimmer giving it a soft luminous glow. It does pull warm but I think this shade is perfect for fall.

Beige Rose and Mauve 798 is a plum with a soft rose pink. Purples are very difficult for me to pull off as a blush but with a light hand I think it’s a really pretty soft plum shade.

Both have medium pigment that is very easy to blend and layer. I really like the finish. It’s very smooth, doesn’t look streaky and I think they will be easy to layer with other powder blushes.

Rouge Coco Bloom

Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom

There are six new shades of Rouge Coco Bloom. These are high pigment lipsticks with a lot of shine. This kind of lipstick formula is one of my favorites. Neutral lip lovers will be able to wear Ease 150 (beige nude brown) or Sweetness 152 (medium-deep rose pink). The other shades pull very bold and edgy which aren’t my vibe, but if you’re one who loves a bold glam look I think you will absolutely love the bright orangey reds this fall.

Bright 158 is a bold and bright warm red. Wild 160 is a deep eggplant plum shade with a tiny bit of shimmer.

Ombre Premiere Libre Loose Eyeshadows

Chanel Ombre Premiere Libre Loose Eyeshadow

For the eyes Chanel launched a new loose eyeshadow called the Ombre Premiere Libre Loose Eyeshadow. I have mixed feelings about these because the product itself is SOOOO good, but the packaging/applicator is high maintenance.

The product itself is a beautiful loose shadow. I think the colors and textures are really stunning. Arm swatches can’t do these justice for how beautiful they are on the eyes. They have a gorgeous soft airbrushed finish with an amazing glow. The shimmer is super fine and smooth. Colors are perfect for fall but I think you can wear them year round.

The biggest downside for me is the applicator but I’m not sure how else these could be designed or packaged. These have a sponge tip cap which picks up an impressive amount of product and applies the pigment to the lids really well, but there is a ton of fall out and they can get very messy on the cheeks.

I have some fall out with any powder shadow whether to be pressed or loose, so I almost always have to clean up the debris every time I apply product (unless it’s a cream).

To get the best application I dab a bit of the loose pigment into the palm of my hand and then dip a brush (like the Hakuhodo B004G, Chanel No 204 or Chanel Dual Ended 200) into the product and apply on the lids. It takes time to dip + apply + blend + layer so these aren’t going to be a quick swipe and go kind of shadow.

Le Vernis

Chanel Fall Winter 2023

Last we have two new shades of Le Vernis Nail Polish. Ete Indien is a sheer jelly bright orange. I can get smooth slightly transparent finish with two coats. Bois des Iles is a wine brown shade. With two coats it pulls very dark brown with vamp-like vibes. The brown-red undertone is noticeable so it’s not too dark.

Overall pleasantly surprised. I’m still used to neutrals or softer tones and I did not expect these colors to work for me. I really love both the lighter shades of the Rouge Coco Bloom in Ease and Sweetness. I think the blushes are beautiful although I’m still in the bright coral + pink + bronze summer state of mind when it comes to makeup colors so I’ll save these for September/October.

Did you check out anything from the fall launch yet? What did you think?
