Chanel Mothers Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and today I’m rounding up some of my favorites from Chanel for gift ideas! Chanel has been one of the brands I’ve worn the most over the years – even through a lot of product revamps and reformulations, I can always find classic staples I’m always happy to wear. You can see their full Mother’s Day Gift Guide online by category too.

If you want to see more in depth reviews and swatches you can always click on the CHANEL Category label. I’ll also link more swatches below.

FRAGRANCE

Best Chanel Perfumes Les Eaux de Chanel and No5 L’Eau

Fragrance is so personal but I have a super soft spot for light citrus scents! My two favorites are the Les Eaux de Chanel in Paris-Riviera* (lovely mix of orange and neroli) and Paris-Biarritz (travel size shown, citrus mandarin and lily of the valley). I’ve purchased the Les Eaux de Chanel Hair and Body Shower Gel several times and think it’s such a beautiful splurge.

No5 L’Eau* is another fresh and pretty scent perfect for spring to summer. It has note of lemon, mandarin, orange, rose, jasmin and ylang ylang. Also has hints of cedar and musk mixed in. It’s also available in an All Over Spray Format and Hand Cream as well – both are really lovely for gifting!

NAIL COLOR

Best Chanel Le Vernis Nail Polishes

You girls know that I’m a die hard Chanel Le Vernis lover. I’ve collected almost all of their polishes over the years and I wear them constantly. Right now my favorites that you can still find are Pensee, Egerie, Organdi, Turban, Camelia, Anthurium, Metallic Bloom.

LIP FAVORITES

Best Chanel Lip Products

Colors above shown left to right: Rouge Allure Laque Continous, Rouge Coco Gloss Caramel, Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue in Timeless Beige, Longwear Lip Pencil in Rose Naturel, Rouge Coco Bloom in Dream

For Mother’s Day gifting, you can’t go wrong with a lip product – even for the super picky ones! There’s something so pretty and luxurious about the packaging. A few of my favorite formulas include:

  • Rouge Allure Laque* a pretty liquid lipstick with a shiny lightweight finish (swatches of all colors here and here)
  • Rouge Coco Gloss* the prettiest high shine gloss that has a semi-thick texture but feels hydrating and adds a lot of shine (swatches of more colors here)
  • Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue Gloss best long-wear liquid lipstick that comes with a clear gloss topper to lock in the color all day (swatches of newer colors here)
  • Longwear Lip Pencil* favorite neutrals are Rose Naturel, Beige Naturel and Nude Brun (swatches of all colors here)
  • Rouge Coco Bloom* the latest lipstick launch from Chanel, rich pigment and hydrating with a pretty shine (swatches of all colors here)
  • Rouge Coco Flash one of the best sheer glossy lipsticks with an almost balm-like feel (swatches of more colors here)

Best of Chanel Makeup

For makeup, I have so many favorites. You can read more about my favorites in my BEST OF CHANEL roundup. A few that I also love that I think will make nice gifts:

SKINCARE

Best Chanel Skincare

For skincare, I also think this is so personal depending on skin type and preferences, but there are a few things I think are versatile enough for any skin type.

  • Huile de Jasmin* is the prettiest lightweight facial oil I’ve tried!
  • La Solution 10 de Chanel is one of the best products I’ve tried for sensitive skin, it’s a gentle soothing cream that features 10 ingredients to soothe skin from environmental aggressors. If you’re sensitive it’s Alcohol-free, fragrance-free, oil-free, non-comedogenic, anti-pollution, dermatologist-tested
  • Sublimage Les Grains Vanille* another luxurious splurge, one of the most gentle face scrubs I’ve ever used, the entire Sublimage line is beautiful
  • La Crème Main a classic you cannot go wrong with, has a soft velvety dry down, also love the Texture Riche and Le Lift formulas

Mothers Day Gift Guide Chanel

Mothers Day Gift Guide Chanel

That wraps up my gift guide! As always I hope splitting it by category helps you narrow down your picks if you’re looking for good gift ideas. In my experience picking just a few items and pairing them with flowers or candy is always well received! I’ve gifted a gloss, lip liner and polish, or a fragrance and hand cream, or a trio of lip products – the combinations are endless!

You can find all these online at Chanel.com. I love that the orders always come packaged in a chic Chanel box so you don’t have to worry about wrapping or presentation – they take care of it for you!

Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom Review + Swatches

March 28, 2021

Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom Hydrating Lipstick

Chanel launched a new lipstick formula called the Rouge Coco Bloom and I have swatches of almost all of the colors today! This is a glossy hydrating plumping lipstick with lots of shine and color. If you love the Rouge Coco Flash formula but want more coverage and pigment you will love these! They’re currently available now at Chanel.com.

There are 20 shades available in the US. I have 19 of them swatched today. I wasn’t able to get all of them lip swatched but can do in a separate part 2 post if you are interested. The formula of these lipsticks is beautiful! There is a noticeable plumping effect on my lips without the tingle. They have a creamy smooth texture that glides on the flawlessly with full coverage. They’re comfortable with a moisturizing feel. Scent-wise there is a very subtle almost skincare-like scent to them, it’s not noticeable to me unless I put the tube right on my nose and on the lips I don’t notice it at all.

Colors swatched below in numerical order by their names. They’re mostly creams with a few that have a shimmer. The only one I don’t have is 112 Opportunity (it was back ordered in the initial launch but is not available to order at Chanel.com):

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.

Swatch comparisons below to a few other shades:

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 eyeshadow quad

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.

Chanel Stylo Ombre Et Contour Beige Perle

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.

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

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

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).

10 shades provided by Chanel for review, 10 purchased by me.
