Chanel Light the Way Set – Black Friday 2023

November 24, 2023

Chanel Black Friday Light the Way Set

Today Chanel launches their Black Friday Limited-Edition Set called Light the Way ($111) with full-sizes of the LES BEIGES Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in Warm and LES BEIGES Healthy Glow Lip Balm in Medium. Both are permanent items in their Les Beiges lineup and it’s packaged in their holiday makeup pouch. I’ve included swatches below from my review of the items when they launched in previous years. I think both are classic staples you can wear year round.

Chanel Les Beiges Summer Light 2021

May 28, 2021

Chanel Les Beiges Summer Light 2021 Beauty Lookbook

I’m so excited to share a look at this year’s Chanel Les Beiges Summer Light collection. I look forward to the new additions every summer! Everything is available now online at Chanel.com. I think the entire collection is effortless and beautiful.

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream in 395 Soleil Tan Deep Bronze

Chanel added a deeper shade of the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream in 395 Soleil Tan Deep Bronze which is a darker cream bronze shade. It is quite a bit darker than the original 390 Soleil Tan Bronze. For me I find the original one shows up for a more natural look on my Chanel Foundation B40/B50 skintone. If you’re B40 or deeper you may have found it matched your skintone too much.

395 Soleil Tan Deep Bronze definitely works better as a deeper bronze shade for my medium tan skin. It is quite intense in color but is easy to blend and make more natural looking. That being said if you are fair toned I think this will be too deep for you, especially if you want a more natural bronze look.

Lasting power is pretty decent as long as I’m not outdoors too long. Weather here is warmer but not intense yet.

Swatches below with 390 vs 395 (heavy swatch). These will blend out to a more natural finish with a brush. Also added swatches of the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Illuminating Powders in Sand and Sunset next to the Healthy Glow Luminous Color in Deep (which I use as a bronzer).

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palettes

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette in Tender and Intense

There are two new Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palettes in Intense (neutral bronze tones) and Tender (pink reddish tones). I love both and they have that finely milled smooth shimmer with sparkles similar. They have a soft texture with medium pigment. You can layer them on top of cream shadows to intensify the color payoff.

Intense has shimmers in a soft cream, bronze, darker khaki, medium khaki and soft bronze. The shimmers are complex in the compact so if you see different photos online the palettes may look different depending on how the light catches.

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette Intense

Tender has a mix of soft pink, wine, champagne and rose tones. I added a couple other swatches to Medium (the original one) and Warm (from last year).

Rouge Coco Flash

Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in Dawn, Heat, Sunbeam, Flame

Chanel has four new shades of Rouge Coco Flash and I think they’re perfect for summer! Dawn is a light neutral nude beige, Sunbeam is a perfect coral (reminds me of a more pigmented version of their discontinued shade in Flash), Flame is a pretty plum, Heat is a bold red. They’re glossy and have pretty good pigment for a shine lipstick formula.

Le Vernis Longwear Nail Color

Chanel Les Beiges Le Vernis

Last we have a look at the new Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colors. I do think at least two of these may have been previously launched many years ago (I know Golden Sand for sure was a color before). I do not have the older shades to compare, but I really love the four options this launch. I applied each one with 2 coats. The metallics will show some of the brush strokes but I think they’re still really pretty.

  • Glimmer is a pretty neutral cream beige with a hint of silver sparkles (but they don’t really show up on the nail)
  • Sunlight is a metallic rose pink
  • Golden Sand is a golden metallic sand color
  • Solar is a pretty bronze sparkle

Chanel Les Beiges Summer Light 2021 Beauty Lookbook

Overall a solid A+ for everything. I love how effortless and easy the colors are to wear. I still would have liked to see them launch a beautiful new powder bronzer or highlighter but I have plenty in my stash to pick from. The lip colors are perfect for summer to me – love that there is a nude and a few brighter colors that are fun but still nice to wear for everyday.

You can find the entire collection available now at Chanel.com. Have you checked out the new launch yet? What did you think?

Chanel Les Beiges Collection Summer 2017

July 28, 2017

Chanel Les Beiges Collection Summer 2017 | The Beauty Look Book

The Chanel Les Beiges Collection this year brings us a some new products including a new foundation formula, new brush, two new cheek colors, a natural eyeshadow palette and some repromotes. I have four items I’ve been testing this month thanks to the Chanel team and am happy to report the collection exceeded my expectations. There have been mixed reviews about this year’s launch, after testing this I do think it’s going to be a hit or miss for you depending on how natural or pigmented you like your makeup. For me it’s a hit. In today’s review:

The Les Beiges Gel Touch Healthy Glow Tint is an interesting base. If you like BB creams or dewy sheer bases you will love this one. I had expected this to be a cushion – but it’s not really cushion like. It has a soft flexible mesh top where you press a sponge into to absorb product. There was some excess that had oozed out around the edges when I opened and I swatched with my fingers and barely saw any coverage. Quick tip is to use the sponge – it’s amazing what a difference there is in application when you apply it with the sponge. I’ve been a long-time fan of the original Les Beiges Healthy Glow Colour Powder in 20 as a setting powder but subsequent Les Beiges launches have often let me down – the newer bases and tints have been tricky to work with sometimes.

The Gel Tint compact is smaller around in size compared to other Les Beiges compacts, but it’s also taller.

Swatches of 30 and 40:

Comparison swatches to the Dior Dreamskin Cushion in 30 (which looks dark but actually matches once blended out), Saturday Skin All Aglow Sunscreen Perfection Cushion in 5 Honey and 6 Goldie, Sulwhasoo Perfecting Cushion in 25.

Chanel Les Beiges Gel Touch Healthy Glow Tint 30 and 40 vs Dior Saturday Skin Sulwhasoo | The Beauty Look Book

Coverage is sheer but still noticeable. There’s enough coverage to cover redness, even out skintone and see color on the skin. Shade-wise I wish there were more yellow-toned options. 30 looks a bit light and pink on my skin but it does adjust and darken on me – my skin is weird these days, some foundations darken quite a bit after they dry down. 40 is the right undertone but it matches when I have a tan. As mentioned in a few recent posts, if I’m out of the sun for even 2-3 days I lose my tan very quickly. Since there is sun everywhere in Florida it’s impossible to avoid the sun – so my skintone changes frequently. Long story short – I can wear either 30 or 40.

I think the Gel Touch Cushion is better suited for normal to dry skin, but even in the hot humid weather I’ve found it stayed put all day and didn’t slide off in the humidity. You do need to set with a powder – when testing this I set with the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Powder in 20 and it helped to tone down the glow but still keep the skin looking radiant and glowy.

Next up are the two Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Colour Sticks in 23 (sheer warm pink) and 24 (sheer apricot). Both have a very natural sheen to them and I believe 23 and 24 are new shades. I tried these when they launched a few years ago and found the pigment lacking once you blended them out on the skin. The pigment in this years’ has improved significantly – but they are still very natural looking. They have a satiny almost velvet finish so they’re not like regular creams. I found they lasted and stayed put all day.

Last but not least is the Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette. Reviews on this have been all over the place in terms of reviewing the pigment. I found all the colors performed well with good pigment – they are all sheer to medium for a soft natural eye though. If you’re looking for high impact rich pigment this is not the palette for you. For me it’s a great fool-proof everyday kind of palette. If you have dry lids or us a matte primer the shadows most likely won’t show up as well as they are very soft – try using a more emollient base and the colors will show up better. I used the Laura Mercier Caviar Eye Stick in Rose Gold to prep my lids.

In the palette you have a sheer beige base, a soft cool brown, a soft warm brown, a satiny charcoal brown and a shimmering champagne. Everything is soft with a diffused look to them. For the person who wants natural definition to their eyes this is just perfect.

It has a similar vibe to the Dior Eye Reviver Palette which I found way too sheer and natural for me. It also reminded me a bit of the Urban Decay Naked2 Basics so I swatched them side by side.

Bottom line I like the collection a lot more than I expected. For me the winner is the Natural Eyeshadow Palette – it’s great for everyday when you just need a little color or a fool-proof conservative palette to add definition without looking like you have a lot of makeup on. I really like this year’s launch of the Blush Sticks – the pigment is a lot better than it was a few years ago but they still look natural. For a cream they stay put for a good amount of time but that being said they’re still creams so if you’re going to be outdoors in humid weather for an extended period of time they’re not going to be budge-proof. The Gel Touch Tint is going to be hit or miss for you depending on skin tone and skin type. I think if you like moisturizing dewy bases you’ll love this. I like it more than I expected and I found a few color matches although I would prefer it to have more of a yellow/olive undertone. I did just buy the Dior Forever Perfect Cushion in 21 and Forever Undercover Concealer in 30 and 31 and I’m testing some bases from Sisley-Paris so you may want to stay tuned for those reviews.

You can find the Chanel Les Beiges collection now online at Chanel.com and at all Chanel counters. P.S. The new brushes have launched as well along with some new nail and lip colors! I’ll be reviewing some of the brushes soon – I’m currently putting them to the test.

Have you tried anything from this year’s Les Beiges collection?

Press samples include the Chanel Les Beiges Gel Tint in 30, Les Beiges Blush Sticks in 23 and 24, Les Beiges Eyeshadow Palette and Le Rouge Crayon in Beige Rose. All other items purchased by me.

Chanel Beauty Haul & Repurchases

Chanel Beauty Haul & Repurchases

I stopped by my local Chanel Beauty boutique over the weekend to restock some of my favorites. A lot of you asked to see a more detailed look the haul and I also received a few things in PR that I wanted to share a look at.

If you have a free-standing Chanel Beauty boutique in your area I highly recommend visiting one! They stock many items you can’t find easily at other retailers. Beauty boutiques have the entire fragrance lineup from the Les Eaux de Chanel, Les Exclusifs, body oils and they also have a very good selection of Eyewear. Occasionally they have stock small leather goods and pouches but they sell out very quickly.

I love shopping at these boutiques since the staff has always been very friendly and very knowledgeable about the entire line. There are a few beauty boutiques in Miami that I always love visiting and one recently opened up in Tampa near me.

The full list of Beauty Boutiques is listed here.

Skincare

Chanel L’Huile Anti-Pollution Cleansing Oil

I really love the Chanel cleansing line and I am obsessed with the L’Huile Anti-Pollution Cleansing Oil ($55). No matter what else I try, I keep going back to this one. The texture is silky smooth, it emulsifies really well with warm water and doesn’t strip the skin once rinsed.

I also love their Gel-to-Oil cleansers. They are similar to a cleansing oil or balm, but in gel form so it’s not as messy/runny when you apply. Once you massage it turns into an oil and dissolves your face makeup. They keep discontinuing my favorites from the Le Blanc line but still make it in the Sublimage formula called the L’Huile-en-Gel De Demaquillage Ultimate Comfort and Radiance-Revealing Gel-to-Oil Cleanser. This is also phenomenal.

Makeup Restocks – Rouge Coco Baume

Chanel Rouge Coco Baume Chilling Pink and My Rose

I restocked a few lip balms. You girls know I love the Rouge Coco Baume formula ($45) – I restocked two shades in Chilling Pink (review and on the lips here) and My Rose (on the lips here). I think every single shade in this particular formula is beautiful.

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation

I restocked my favorite foundation in two shades: Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation ($65) in BD41 and BD51. These have a golden undertone which is best for me although the new BO olive range works well too. Formula-wise this is my favorite foundation from Chanel. It has medium coverage, lightly hydrating but not too much, color range is extensive and they have multiple undertone options. I swatched the shades I have below in B40, BD41, B50 (the No 1 de Chanel formula), BD51 and BO53.

Chanel Foundation Swatches B40, BD41, B50, BD51 and BO53

If you have dry skin and want medium natural coverage I recommend the Les Beiges Healthy Glow or the No 1 de Chanel. If you want something ultra sheer and just a tint I love the Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint.

Ombre Essentielle

Chanel Ombre Essentielle Eyeshadow Singles and Top Coat

Chanel launched new single eyeshadows in the Ombre Essentielle Long-wearing Eyeshadow ($40) and also in a Multi-Use Top Coat ($40). I’m usually more of a fan of palettes than singles but I swatched them in store and was REALLY impressed with the pigment and textures. The shimmers are almost creamy to the touch with how velvety smooth they are and the pigment is stunning! Mattes are exceptionally smooth but some have a very tiny bit of shimmer for a little depth.

I bought one in the Top Coat Blanc Perle which is an opalescent kind of smooth shimmer. It’s like a pink opal color with a soft almost creamy feel. It transforms other shadows to make them look more dimensional.

Yesterday a PR package arrived with a few more shades that I have swatched below and lucky me they are actually the ones I had my eye on from my swatch session in store. Rose Charnel is a matte soft warm coral rose, Brun Fauve is a matte warm brown, Quartz Fume is a shimmery bronze almost khaki taupe. I swatched the mattes with the top coat on top too.

Chanel Ombre Essentielle Eyeshadow Singles and Top Coat swatches

A number of you have asked about brushes and tools so I shared a quick peek above of the eyeshadow brushes I like from Chanel. It appears the first fluffy one I showed above might be discontinued, but the second round brush is Flat Eyeshadow Brush 202, on the right is the Retractable Dual-Ended Brush 200 (each end comes with caps too), Round Brush 204 and the Eye Contouring Brush No 203.

Fragrance Repurchase + New Additions

Chanel Les Eaux de Chanel Paris-Biarritz

The Les Eaux de Chanel Paris-Biarritz ($113 for the travel size) is one of my all time favorites. It’s been a favorite for years as I’m a lover of anything with a fresh citrus vibe. It has a beautiful mix of Sicilian mandarin and lily of the valley. To me the citrus notes are dominant and the floral notes are really subtle but strong enough to round out the mandarin and soften the overall feel. I love that it comes in a travel size so I can bring it with me in my tote on-the-go or for travel. I also love Paris-Riviera which is another citrus, but a little brighter and sharper.

Chanel Les Exclusifs Beauty Boutique

I smelled all four of the new Exclusifs Body Oils and they are pure luxury in a bottle. I think Beige is the best followed by Gardenia, 1957 and then Coromandel. I tried the 1957 oil in store and the scent lasted for hours on my skin well into the evening. The formula of these oils is very good. It has the perfect texture and they aren’t thick or sticky feeling. If I didn’t already have Gardenia I would have purchased Beige but these bottles are so big it will take me forever to use one up.

Chanel No 5 L'Eau Drop perfume BEAUTY LOOKBOOK

I have a preview of the No 5 L’Eau Eau de Toilette Drop ($155) which officially launches on the 13th. The PR team sent over their latest fragrance launch which is their classic No 5 L’Eau packaged in a special limited-edition round case similar to the hand creams, but in a clear bottle. It’s a crisp clean scent I think is well suited for the summertime heat. It’s a fresh crisp clean scent that is a floral citrus + aldehydes. It has a beautiful blend of lemon, mandarin, orange, rose, jasmin, ylang-ylang, vetiver, cedar, musk. I think it is beautiful! (on the nails above is Bois des Iles which I think might be discontinued, but Rouge Noir is similar).

Chanel Les Exclusifs Comete

Last but not least is a look at the new Exclusifs in Comete ($325 – $500). This is a beautiful soft powdery floral with cherry blossom, iris and heliotrope. It has a powdery feel but the cherry blossom adds sweetness to it. It’s airy and light. On me the lasting power is very long and strong. It’s very different from what I usually gravitate towards but it’s fresh and soft with a feminine vibe.

For those asking, here is the beauty breakdown of what I am wearing in my Chanel Beauty haul reel:

That wraps up my Chanel beauty haul! Hope you found the extra details helpful!

PR gifted items include Comete, No 5 L’Eau and the Ombre Essentielle.

Chanel Les Beiges 2024 review and swatches new bronzers via The Beauty Lookbook

For this year’s Summer Les Beiges collection Chanel Beauty launched new oversized bronzer palettes called the Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powders ($95 each, 5 shades). They also added a few shade extensions in their Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation ($65, 42 shades available) and the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powders ($60 each, refillable). I’m late to the party with these but I have a closer look at 4 of the bronzers and one of the new foundation shades.

I’ve also included a peek at a few launches from Spring-Summer for lips and nails since there weren’t any new colors for the Les Beiges launch.

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powder

Chanel Les Beiges 2024 review and swatches new bronzers via The Beauty Lookbook

I’ve been collecting the Chanel bronzers every year for as long as I can remember. This year they brought 5 shades and I love how soft and naturally glowy they look on the skin. Each compact has 3 shades you can use individually or swirl together. The compacts are oversized like the ones from 2022. Each color has enough product you can definitely dip your brush into each shade without overlapping colors if you prefer.

Light Coral is a mix of light gold, medium bronze and soft peach

Medium Coral is very similar to Light Coral, each shade is just more intense and more saturated

I can see myself wearing every single palette this summer although my favorites are Medium Coral and Medium Rose Gold. I like that Light Coral is lighter but still shows up my skin. If you have ultra fair skin tone I think Light Coral will be the best option for you. Deep Rose Gold is so beautiful but pulls very dark on my skin. Even with a light hand it’s too dark but that means this will most likely show up on deeper skin tones.

They didn’t launch a new brush to go with the bronzers but I really love the Chanel Brush 106. It’s the perfect size, shape and density for any kind of powder product.

Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation (new shades)

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation BO53

The Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation has been one of my favorite foundations Chanel has ever launched. I think it rivals Armani Luminous Silk Foundation but the Chanel has a tiny bit more coverage, a little better lasting power and more hydration without being too hydrating. It wears well in the summer months for me, even in hot humid weather.

I usually wear the Shades B40, BD41, B50 or BD51. The BD range has typically been the best for me as it has a golden undertone. They added BO which is for olive skin tones. I usually cannot wear a lot of foundation with olive undertones even though I do think I have them in my skin because most olive shades pull very green. The Chanel BO53 is a perfect match for me, I literally could not believe my eyes that I’ve found a match this exact! They also have BO33 and BO73. Other shade extensions now include B00, BO33, BO53, BO73, B90,B130, B160.

Spring-Summer Lip Colors

Chanel Rouge Coco Baume Anemone and Coralline

I didn’t end up reviewing the Spring-Summer launch but I did pick up a few things which I really love. Chanel added two new shades of Rouge Coco Baume ($45) in Anemone 932 (muted peach brown) and Coralline 934 (a coral). I’m a huge fan of these tinted balms and I think they’re under-rated. They swatch very sheer on the arm or hand, but for most of these (except the Dreamy White) pull more pigmented on the lips than a hand swatch. They’re still very natural looking for that effortless polished wash of color.

I wear Flirty Coral and My Rose the most. I swatched all the shades I have except for Dreamy White because it doesn’t show up in an arm swatch. I am missing one of the red colors. But all the other shades are swatched below.

Chanel Rouge Coco Baume swatches

Le Vernis – Sun Drop 177

Chanel Le Vernis Sun Drop

Last but not least is a look at the Le Vernis in Sun Drop. It’s such a unique dusty muted peach with a hint of brown undertone. I have to admit it didn’t look really exciting in the bottle but on the fingers I love it. It adds a nice pop of color without being too bright.

That wraps up my Chanel Les Beiges review! I think the shades are beautiful.

Available now at Chanel.

P.S. I’ve been getting a lot of follow up questions from you about Les Exclusifs in Comete, the Gardenia Body Oil and there’s a new No 5 L’eau launch coming out. I’ll put together a Chanel fragrance/body roundup review soon!

Chanel Les Beiges Winter Glow 2024

February 2, 2024

Chanel Les Beiges Winter Glow 2024 review via The Beauty Lookbook

This year Chanel has surprised us with a new collection launched called the Les Beiges Winter Glow Collection. As a huge fan of their Les Beiges collections, I was thrilled to see this with a wintery twist. The collection launched in early January online at Chanel.com and after playing with everything for a few weeks I have a review today including:

Healthy Winter Glow Blush

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Winter Glow Blush

There are three shades of the Les Beiges Healthy Winter Glow Blush. These are limited-edition powder blushes in the Les Beiges beige compact with a snowflake embossed on the surface of the powder. They have an almost creamy texture, like a cream to powder, but perform more like a powder. Each shade has impressive buildable pigment that is easy to layer. They have a subtle glow and each shade has some shimmer in them.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Winter Glow Blush swatches

Rose Polaire

Rose Polaire is my favorite. It’s a baby rose pink that has a really stunning glow to it. I was worried it would be too pale to show up on my medium Chanel B40 skin tone but it shows up beautifully for a pretty baby pink flush.

________

Coral Givre

Corail Givre is a stunning coral with gold shimmer. This has a similar look to some of the other Chanel peachy blushes but has a brightness that brings the skin to life. The gold shimmer adds a pretty glow – the shimmer and sparkles are more visible on the skin in this one.

________

Mauve Glace

Mauve Glace is a beautiful neutral-warm mauve. It looks cool-toned in the pan but on my skin it pulls a bit reddish leaning more towards a warmer mauve. I think this is a really pretty shade that will be great for spring.

Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette – COOL

Chanel Les Beiges Winter Glow Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette

Chanel launched a new Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette called Cool. As someone who rarely wears purple shadows I have to say this far exceeded my expectations. It has a soft seashell pink satin, a medium warm pink satin, shimmering warm purple burgundy, a darker plum with gold flecks and a sparkling lilac glittery sparkle topper. The sparkle shade almost has a duo chrome quality and flashes blue, violet and pink.

Chanel Les Beiges Winter Glow Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette swatches

Texture is very soft and powdery so there is fallout when you apply but they do stay put on the eyes without migrating. I think the light sparkle shade makes this palette special. The eye look comes alive with the pop of violet/pink shimmers. Pigment is medium but buildable. I really love this palette! See it in action here.

Rouge Coco Baume

Chanel Rouge Coco Baume Chilling Pink, Keep Cool, Cocoon

There are three new Rouge Coco Baumes. These are sheer tinted balms in a twist up tube format. If you’re new to these these have a comfortable feel, no scent and sheer-medium color payoff.

Chanel Rouge Coco Baume Chilling Pink, Keep Cool, Cocoon

Chilling Pink is a very sheer pale milky pink. It’s not visible on the arm or hand swatch but on my lips I see a very pretty sheer milky pink.

Keep Cool has a pretty 90s vibe. On my lips it’s very pale, almost like a taupe shade. I think it’s better when paired with a deeper or warmer liner on my lips. It pulls very cool toned.

Cocoon is a sheer berry color. It has a slight hint of shimmer to it but pulls more like a cream. It’s almost like a reddish bitten stain on my lips. It’s very pretty – on me it pulls warm in undertone.

Le Vernis

Chanel Le Vernis Glaciale and Skieuse

The two Le Vernis shades are sheers, but they are very smooth sheers. Glaciale is a sheer milky white and Skieuse is a sheer baby pink. I applied both with 3 coats in the swatches below. I already bought backups of both shades. I think they’re really pretty.

Healthy Winter Glow Primers

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Winter Glow Primers

Last I have some quick thoughts about the new Healthy Winter Glow Primers (available in 3 shades). These are very sheer glowy primers that almost have a gel-like feel. On my skin when layered over moisturizer they had a sticky feel. The colors are really pretty, but they are very sheer and don’t really give the skin much of a tint or glow. These are scented with fragrance. I didn’t notice much of a difference in my foundation with these. I think the No 1 de Chanel Skin Enhancers are better for my skin type. Swatches below of the Chanel highlighting fluids and La Base Illuminatrice. I didn’t swatch on the arm as they pretty much disappear once blended.

Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump Shimmer Glass

January 3, 2024

Tarte Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump Shimmer Glass

Tarte launched a shimmery version of their viral Maracuja Juicy Lip Plump – Shimmer Glass ($24) and as a huge fan of the formula and shimmery lips I ordered nearly all the shades to try. There are 12 shades total available at Tarte Cosmetics and 8 are available at Sephora. (I picked up all the colors except for the purple one.)

After testing the colors I will say the shimmer is quite intense but there is no texture/gritty feel. They’re very smooth just like the other Maracuja Juicy Lips. Feedback from many of you based on my Lip Swatches here are very mixed. Some of you are LIVING for these 90s shimmer vibes. Some of you absolutely hate it.

I liked some of the shades – mainly the warmer ones or bolder colors. The cooler tones ended up looking significantly more frosty on my lips (almost blue) but I suspect that is mainly because my lip tone is on the deeper side. Colors I tried:

  • Pearl Shimmer Glass is a white frosty pearl, this one is the most contrasted with my natural lip for an icy white finish.
  • Soft Pink Shimmer Glass is a beautiful pale champagne pink with some violet/blue flashes, this one pulled very cool toned on my lips.
  • Peach Shimmer Glass is one of my favorites, it’s a soft pale peach champagne, similar to Soft Pink, but warmer so this one was more flattering on my lips.
  • Sunflower Shimmer Glass is a yellow shimmer, just like a sunflower, I feel like the stock promo photos with this shade are misleading and don’t match up among all the photos. Most of the stock photos show a very pale yellow shimmer, in real life it’s a true sunny looking yellow.
  • Coral Shimmer Glass is a beautiful bright coral shade, but this one pulls very frosty. I think I would love it in a non-shimmer version.
  • Pink Shimmer Glass is a cool baby pink, also very blue on my skin tone, not flattering, but it’s so pretty in the tube.
  • Rose Shimmer Glass is a beautiful soft pink rose.
  • Rosy Copper Shimmer Glass was one of the shades in their holiday sets, this is a very pretty coppery shade.
  • Rosy Mauve Shimmer Glass is a cool-toned mauve, it’s cool but not too cool, I really like this color.
  • Berry Shimmer Glass is a stunning plum red. Reminds me of MAC Sophisto with a bit more shimmer.
  • Ruby Shimmer Glass is another pretty one, it’s a soft red shimmer, not too deep, not too warm, just right.

Overall I’ve found a few I really like and have been keeping in my purse the last few weeks. I don’t think they’ll be for everyone – the shimmer is a bit intense, but for some of the shades the shimmer is only intense if you’re in direct sunlight or studio lights.

Top 3 favorites are: Rosy Copper, Peach and Berry. I’m undecided on this level of shimmer/frost. I didn’t like them in the most recent Dior Addict Lip Maximizers or the Chantecaille Holiday lip. I think it depends on the color and how the tones pull on your complexion.

Available now at Tarte and Sephora.
