Chanel Perles Et Eclats de Chanel – Spring 2021

March 2, 2021

Chanel Perles Et Eclats de Chanel - Spring 2021

I have a look at some pieces from this year’s Chanel Perles Et Eclats de Chanel collection! I hauled a few items and have a full review and swatches of the my Chanel Le Blanc 2021 makeup collection picks. You can find the collection available now at Chanel.com. What I ordered:

Highlighter

Chanel Perles De Lumiere Illuminating Powder Blush Powder

The new highlighter Perles De Lumiere is a winner for me! I love the undertones and the shimmer. It almost has a soft sandy bronzed effect on my skin that matches my golden undertones perfectly. It’s metallic but applies smoothly. I know most of us beauty junkies and long-time Chanel collectors probably don’t need anymore highlighters at this point. I really love this one. While I can’t say it’s a must-have, I’m really happy I bought it and love the tones.

Eyeshadows

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Allure Et Eclat

The eye products exceeded my expectations! I think they’re very wearable. In the pan, the Les 4 Ombres Allure Et Eclat looks very light and kinda boring. When layered together they give the eyes a pretty unique soft diffused look. The star of the palette is the bottom right burgundy shimmer. It is what makes the palette stand out as the primary shade for me, I use the others to blend out the edges and highlight the brow bone for a pearly glow.

Texture is unique to me – it’s a powder but almost has a slightly creamy bouncy feel. Colors in general have a soft effect on the skin whether you apply with a sponge applicator or a brush.

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Allure Et Eclat

There are two new Stylo Ombre Et Contour pencils (twist up format) and I picked up one in Beige Perle. For me it’s a nice inbetween color to wear on the eyes when you don’t want to do a full eye look. Smudging this along the lash line will add some nice contour and shimmer in a no-makeup-makeup kind of way. I don’t think this is a must-have though.

Rouge Coco Flash

Chanel Rouge Coco Flash in Douceur 154 and Delicatesse 156

For the lips I was really tempted to buy all of the colors but wanted to save up for some other things. I picked the Rouge Coco Flash colors in Douceur 154 and Delicatesse 156. Both are sheer and shimmery. Douceur is a transparent sheer pearlescent pink. It does give my lips a pink tint but since I have pigmented lips and the formula is sheer, it looks like a soft pink shine. If you have lighter colored lips the pink will show up more on you. Delicatesse is a pretty sheer bold pink. It has some red undertones to it but with the shimmer it gives a more diffused look.

New Le Vernis Nail Polish

Chanel Le Vernis Perle Blanche 889 and Perle Burgundy 891

Last is a look at the two new Le Vernis nail polishes. Perle Blanche 889 is a super sheer opal shimmer. I applied it with 3 coats and it still looks very sheer. It’s pretty and makes the hands glow in a natural way. I like that the brush strokes aren’t visible. Perle Burgundy 891 is a pretty soft muted mauve plum brown shimmer. I was pleasantly surprised by this one although I think it has more of a fall season vibe. I love how it looks! Swatches in sunlight it look a bit brighter than they do in natural light – the shimmers are reflective in direct sun with a flash.

Chanel Le Vernis Perle Blanche 889 and Perle Burgundy 891 swatches

I skipped the creamy highlighting balms as creams rarely last long on my skin and I felt like I wouldn’t get a lot of use out of the new sticks. If you hauled or tried them let me know what you thought! I also passed on the new shades of Rouge Coco and Rouge Allure although I am tempted to try them, especially the color Tendresse.

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel

January 28, 2021

Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel review

Chanel launched a collection of lipsticks called Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel ($42 each at Chanel.com). These have the classic Rouge Allure lipstick click magnetic packaging in a black and gold case with the tops embossed in a lion motif design. Luminous matte with a soft diffused look on the lips. Comfortable and weightless without feeling dry.

The formula is one of the smoothest softest mattes I’ve ever tried. Coverage is flawless and soft like velvet! Lasting power is very good and non-drying. I don’t detect a heavy scent although they are very softly fragranced with a super soft clean powder floral that I find pleasant and soothing. Color-wise they all run bold and dark on my complexion. Even the lightest color 227 pulls darker on my skin tone (Chanel B40).

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel

There are eight shades of Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel available individually ($42 each) and online at Chanel.com there is a Trio Set available in a box with shades 257, 277 and 58 ($126).

227 Beige Rugissant – warm beige
237 Beige Ardent – pink brown
247 Rouge Impulsif – bright coral
257 Rouge Triomphal – bold red pink
267 Rouge Audacieux – deeper red
277 Rouge Fauve – warm red
57 Rouge Feu – bold orange
58 Rouge Vie – diffused rosewood

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Le Lion de Chanel review Sabrina

Overall I think the formula is a solid A+ for all the shades. Color range is bolder and more dramatic than I am used to wearing but still classic and chic. I hope they continue making more shades in this formula because it feels so smooth and luxurious!

Chanel Spring-Summer 2021 Collection Review

January 21, 2021

Chanel Spring Summer 2021 Makeup Collection Review

Today I have my Chanel Spring-Summer 2021 Collection Review with a detailed look at the Les Fleurs de Chanel collection for spring. The collection is now available online at Chanel.com. I suspect it will trickle into retail stores and counters in the next few weeks.

There are a few repromotes in this launch as it appears the eyeshadow palettes that were supposed to  be part of this collection did not make it to the US. I don’t know if they will make an appearance at a later date or not. For now they’ve repromoted Warm Memories and a few other eye products to complete the look. In today’s review:

Cheeks

Chanel Fleur de Printemps Blush Highlighter Duo

The Fleur de Printemps Blush Highlighter Duo is the star of the collection in my opinion! It has a beautiful warm pale pink shimmer on one side and a soft coral pink satin on the other. I swirl the colors together in the pan and it has a really pretty soft pink glow. The texture/formula is the same as the Cheek Duos from Cruise 2019. It has a soft finely milled texture that’s almost creamy but definitely still powder.

Swatches and swatch comparisons to a few other colors:

Eyes

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad in 354 Warm Memories and Le Volume de Chanel in 120 Metal Terracotta

For the eyes they’ve repromoted Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad in 354 Warm Memories and Ombre Premiere Laque in 32 Vastness and 26 Rose Quartz. (Original review here if you want to see more swatches.) The new color in this collection is the Le Volume de Chanel Mascara in 120 Metal Terracotta. This is a pretty metallic copper – on my lashes it gives a subtle tint. I think it’s a nice alternative to black or brown if you have lighter color hair or lashes. On darker hair like mine it will look more subtle. Formula performs just as good as the other shades of the Le Volume de Chanel mascaras.

Lips

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme in 134 Eclosion and 136 Pivoine Noire

For the lips there are two shades Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme in 134 Eclosion (bright coral) and 136 Pivoine Noire (bright coral red). These are matte lip colors with an intense color payoff and long lasting power. They are ultra pigmented and adhere well to the lips.

 

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 73 Invincible and 77 Dark Blossom

They’ve also included two shades of the Rouge Allure Laque 73 Invincible (repromote, swatched here and here) and a new color 77 Dark Blossom which is a plum shimmer. I really love the look of Dark Blossom even though it seems more like a fall color to me, it’s a really pretty soft plum. It is on the sheer side but you can layer it for more coverage.

Chanel Spring Summer 2021 swatches

Nails

Le Vernis in 883 Pensee, 885 Anthurium and 887 Metallic Bloom

Last we have a look at the three new Le Vernis in 883 Pensee (soft peachy pink with a very tiny hint of pearl), 885 Anthurium (gorgeous pink red) and 887 Metallic Bloom (the prettiest warm coral orange red shimmer). I was really surprised at how pretty Metallic Bloom was on the fingers – it’s a bright happy shade that looks much prettier on the fingers than it does in the bottle. Pensee is a nice soft peach but for me requires three coats for smooth even coverage.

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Swatches Part 2

January 19, 2021

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Review + Swatches

I have my Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Swatches Part 2 up today with lip swatches of Shades 67 Steady through 78 Tenacious. For quick reference I have all of the shades arm swatched in my first Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Review + Swatches post from a couple weeks ago along with the lighter neutrals on the lips. My full review on the formula, pigment, lasting power etc is in that post as well. All the shades can be found at Chanel.com.

I swatched most of the remaining colors (except for the last few deepest colors). These are done on bare lips. For skintone reference I’m a match to the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation in B40 or BD41. Equivalent of MAC NC35, Pat McGrath Light Medium 14, Tom Ford Natural and Laura Mercier Flawless Fusion in Buff. I’ve lost most of my tan so I’m lighter in skintone right now than I am most of the year.

Color descriptions:

  • 67 Steady – bright coral
  • 68 Unlimited – bold orange
  • 69 Remanence – bold hot pink
  • 70 Immobile – bright red with pink
  • 71 Mythe – shimmery bold warm red
  • 72 Iconique – muted red with a hint of shimmer
  • 73 Invincible – bold orange red
  • 74 Experimente – plum red
  • 75 Fidelite – brown plum cream
  • 78 Tenacious – plum with a hint of berry

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Review + Swatches

December 21, 2020

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Review | The Beauty Lookbook

Happy Monday! I have a look at the new Chanel Rouge Allure Laque ($40 each, 20 shades) today! These are Chanel’s new satin liquid lipstick with a lightweight feel and shiny finish. Coverage is natural looking with medium pigment but they can be layered for full coverage. Texture is light and smooth with a weightless almost airy feel to them. They’re comfortable on the lips with medium lasting power. These come with a beveled sponge tip applicator for an easy line and fill kind of swipe. Available now at Chanel.com.

In terms of similar coverage and feel these remind of the NARS Velvet Lip Glides (which I think are being phased out). Soft almost whipped texture, good coverage, weightless, nice satiny finish with a soft shine. Downside is they are not budge-proof and they do transfer if you touch your lips to a cup or mask (or anything else). I haven’t had a chance to give all 20 shades a full day wear test, although for the handful I have worn, I’ve been able to get very good lasting power. They have stayed fresh looking around 4-5 hours before I took them off for a snack. I do think some of the darker and bolder ones can get even better wear time, but the neutrals I tried wear very nicely on my lips.

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque Review | The Beauty Lookbook

The Chanel Rouge Allure Laques aren’t scented although there is a soft scent that is hard to describe. It’s exactly what I’d think a lip gloss would smell like – once on the lips I don’t detect the scent very much. Colors and swatches of all 20 shades below.

I wasn’t able to get all 20 lip swatched but here are a few for you. I will try to have the rest of them swatched on the face/lips by the end of the week in a second part. I just got a much-needed hair cut and my stylist added toner to help blend out the remaining highlights and it looks so dark now! Also wearing:

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 60 Inflexible

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 61 Continous

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 62 Still

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 63 Ultimate

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 64 Exigence

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 65 Imperturbable

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 66 Permanent

Bottom line, I love what I’ve tried so far. If you loved the Rouge Allure Ink I think you’ll definitely love the Rouge Allure Laque. I feel like I am the only beauty lover that did not like the Rouge Allure Inks in the neutral colors. They barely showed up on my lips and did not last long at all, although the bolder/deeper shades performed well. I think these Rouge Allure Laques are a better version of the Rouge Allure Ink with better coverage (although still medium/natural), better lasting power, and a better glossy finish.

By comparison I think the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Fusion (reviewed here) has the best pigment/coverage and lasting power for a weightless liquid lipstick, although the colors are matte and pull darker while the Rouge Allure Laques are more glossy/translucent.

The Chanel Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue (swatches here) has the longest wear for a liquid lipstick in the Chanel line, although the concept is different with the full coverage matte base for color and glossy top coat.

If you liked the NARS Velvet Lip Glides you will also love the Chanel Rouge Allure Laques. I know some of you loved them (just like me) while others did not like it because the lasting power wasn’t long enough.

I hope you find these swatches helpful! I have more saved on my Instagram Reels @beautylookbook if you’re looking for swatches in different lighting.

 

I hope you found this Chanel Rouge Allure Laque review helpful! You can find the Chanel Rouge Allure Laque available now at Chanel.com. Currently available in 20 shades. Also available in a Rouge Allure Laque Trio Set (with 64 Exigence, 73 Invincible and 80 Timeless).

Best of Chanel Makeup | The Beauty Lookbook

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! I’ve put together a Best of Chanel Makeup roundup for you today. I’ve been such a long time fan of Chanel – it’s one of the makeup brands that inspired me to start blogging because I was so excited about finding the latest and greatest from them.

I intended on writing about the Chanel Good to Glow Cyber Monday launch but it sold out in record time and was completely gone within a couple hours! The good news is that the set included permanent items in the Chanel Makeup line so if you missed out, you can still buy the Rosy Light Drops, Rouge Coco Flash in Boy and Mirror Compact individually which I have swatched for you below. It came packaged in a red makeup bag in case you wanted to see what it looked like:

Chanel Good to Glow Makeup Set | Cyber Monday 2020

I hope you find this roundup helpful if you’re looking for recommendations of my favorites. You can always click on the CHANEL category tag to see a full list of all the Chanel reviews I’ve done. Quick note that this post focuses on makeup! I like a lot of the skincare, fragrance + body care items but wanted to give a more edited list for just makeup.

Base

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation B40 BD41

The latest foundation from Chanel is the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation. It’s a natural medium coverage glow foundation. I like that it’s not heavy or thick like the previous formulas in past years. I bought four of the shades and found that B40 (more neutral) or BD41 (more yellow) work best for me right now. It is scented so if fragrance irritates your skin do a patch test before applying. This has decent lasting power for a glow foundation – it’s not too dewy or luminous but I do set with a powder.

Swatches next to a few other formulas (I’ve linked my previous reviews, I have swatches of other shades in a lot of those posts):

Chanel Foundation Swatches B40

For powder the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder is one of my favorites for a soft diffused glow. It’s a matte but has a slight translucent quality so you can buff into the skin to set your foundation. I use No 20 to set and No 30 or 40 as a warm-up/contour color. They did relaunch their Loose Poudre Universelle in extended shades this year. I bought 30 and 40 – they’re pretty standard and basic. While they work, they’re just not my favorite.

Blush

Best Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush | The Beauty Lookbook

The Chanel Joues Contrast Blush is one of the best for a soft hint of color. Most of the colors will give you a natural look that is impossible to overdo. My top four picks are below (click on the name to see face swatches):

  • Alezane* – best neutral beige with a hint of shimmer
  • Rose Bronze* – pretty soft rose with a hint of pearl
  • Quintessence – best soft rose pink matte
  • Foschia Rosa – best bright pink with a hint of coral blush

Highlighter

Chanel Le Blanc Rosy Light Drops and Les Beiges Highlighting Fluid

The Chanel fluid highlighters are stunning for a soft delicate glow. You can mix them in with foundation, apply them all over the face, or dab them where you want a highlight. They are sheer but noticeable on the skin.

Liquid Highlighter Swatches from Chanel, Tom Ford, By Terry and Marc Jacobs

I have collected almost all of the Chanel highlighters over the years. Most of them have been limited edition but I’ve linked the current powder versions available below:

  • Les Chaines de Chanel Illuminating Blush* reviewed here
  • Eclat du Desert Illuminating Powder* review here (LOVE this one)
  • Metal Peach Illuminating Powder* review here
  • Duo de Camelias* reviewed here
  • Poudre Lumiere* swatches here and here
  • Le Signe du Lion* reviewed here

Bronzers

Chanel Les Beiges Bronzing Cream and Luminous Powder in Deep

The Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream is a classic easy to wear cream bronzer. It adds warmth to the skin in a natural way. This replaced the original cream bronzer and while many say they’re different, I feel the new one performs the same as the original. Review + swatches here. I hope they add more shades!

Chanel powder bronzers are typically limited-edition launches with summer collections. I’ve been using the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Powder in Deep as a bronzer and love it! I didn’t like the lighter shades as a setting powder on my skin, but the darker ones seem to work well for me as a powder bronzer that isn’t too harsh or orange.

Chanel Black Friday 2020 Rouge Coco Flash in Coco Club

November 27, 2020

Chanel Black Friday 2020 Rouge Coco Flash in Coco Club | The Beauty Lookbook

This year the Chanel Black Friday 2020 launch is a new Rouge Coco Flash in Coco Club 136 ($38). It’s a smooth glossy berry shimmer that flashes both plum and red at the same time. Pigment is full and opaque but with a tiny bit of translucent finish with the shine. On my lips and complexion reds and plums tend to pull bright fuchsia red and this is the case with this color. If you find reds pull more true to the tube color you will find it more on the red-plum side. Coco Club is a classic glam color. For me – I tend to gravitate towards pinks or corals for brighter shades this one pulls more dressy. You can find this now at Chanel.com.

Finish is glossy but it stays put for several hours before fading. To extend the wear or help keep it in place I recommend using a lip liner. I wore this by itself for the post. If you’re looking for a Chanel Lip Liner, I swatched their new Le Crayon Levres Longwear Lip Pencils earlier this spring here.
