New Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tweed Eyeshadows

September 2, 2022

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tweed Eyeshadows

The new Chanel Les 4 Ombres Tweed Eyeshadow Palettes have arrived and they are stunning! The collection also features two new Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliners. I have swatches of everything for you today! Available now at Chanel and Nordstrom.

Chanel’s Les 4 Ombres Tweed Eyeshadow palettes are limited-edition inspired by the iconic Chanel tweed pattern. As a long time die hard Chanel fan I feel like these are truly special. They added so many extra special touches from the embossed tweed print on the shadows to the cute small tweed sleeves for each palette!

The shadows are soft and smooth. They have an almost bouncy feel to them. The finish/shimmer varies depending on the palette. Pigment also varies per palette depending on the individual shadow texture, but overall each one has a smooth finish.

01 Tweed Cuivre

01 Tweed Cuivre is my favorite out of all the palettes. It’s also the most shimmery. Colors include a deeper bronze shimmer, a medium bronze, a sandy gold shimmer (my favorite kind of tone) and a sparkley silvery gold topper. This is the palette of my dreams! I live for bronzey gold tones and this one is stunning. Pigment is medium but buildable. It reminds me a little bit of the Charlotte Tilbury Bella Sofia Palette but with different undertones.

02 Tweed Pourpre

02 Tweed Pourpre is a satin finish palette with purple and pink tones. Pigment is medium but with a dense brush you can build color. You can see the shimmer when light hits the skin, but on the eyes it has an almost semi-matte finish. Colors include a soft satin plum, a salmon pink with light pink shimmer, a muted mauve, a deeper plum. I didn’t manage to photograph a look with this one but I really love the look Erin Nicole did onYouTube! If you haven’t checked her out you definitely should!

03 Tweed Fauve

03 Tweed Fauve is a warm toned palette. I have not tried this on the eyes yet but it swatched smoothly and the colors layered well when I swatch tested them. Colors include a deep orange, a shimmery copper gold, satin brown, pretty peach shimmer. The color theme is very warm but has a cozy fall-vibe.

04 Tweed Brun Et Rose

04 Tweed Brun Et Rose is a neutral-cool toned palette with sheer-medium color payoff. You will need to use a dense brush with some layering to have the colors show up with more intensity but I think that is the beauty of this. You can create a soft smokey eye or a more dramatic look by layering more of the deep color.

It pulls more neutral-warm on my arm but on my eyes/face it looks more cool-toned. It has a soft oyster grey pearl (love this!), a warm taupe satin, a pale pink sparkle topper (so pretty) and a deeper cool brown. I packed them on very heavily in the swatch. This is my second favorite.

The color story reminds me of Mystic Eyes (original one with the square pans) and also of Tisse Rivoli. It also seems like it could be a softer less frosty version of Tom Ford Nude Dip.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Eyeliner Cuivre Dore and Bois Noir

Last I have a look at the two new Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliners ($34 each). Both colors are really beautiful. 52 Cuivre Dore is a copper shimmer and Bois Noir is a soft shimmer brown. Both give a subtle look to the eye. I think they’re beautiful!

Chanel Stylo Yeux Eyeliner Cuivre Dore and Bois Noir

I posted an Instagram Reel with video swatches to try and show the colors in action and in different lighting on Instagram. Overall I think the palettes are stunning. For me 01 Tweed Cuivre is the one I would say is a must-have for me because I love the color scheme and shimmer. 04 Tweed Brun Et Rose comes in close second, although I do think it’s dupeable.

02 Tweed Pourpre and 03 Tweed Fauve aren’t really colors I wear, but I do think they are beautiful palettes. I rarely ever wear purples but based on a few past looks I’ve done with purple palettes some of you have said I should wear it more!

Chanel Fall 2022 Rouge Allure Lipsticks

August 18, 2022

Chanel Fall 2022 Rouge Allure Lipstick | The Beauty Lookbook

As promised I have a look at the new Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Lip Colors ($45 each) for fall. I have 9 of the 12 new neutrals to share swatches of. As a neutral lip lover I could not be more excited for these! All of the colors are available now online at Chanel.com.

Chanel Fall 2022 Rouge Allure Lipstick | The Beauty Lookbook

 

The Rouge Allure Lipstick is one of my long-time favorite formulas, although a number of my favorite shades were limited-edition or have been discontinued by now. This is a classic lipstick formula with a luminous glow. Glides on beautifully on the lips. Medium buildable coverage with most shades, the bolds being very opaque. These have a very subtle almost skincare scent but it’s barely there.

Lasting power is medium – they have a glossy finish so they’re not super long wearing but they will stay put as long as you don’t have any contact with your lips. It’s a formula I don’t mind re-applying!

Colors for fall are in the neutral range. There are light shades, medium tones and deeper colors. I skipped the brown tones since I rarely end up wearing them. Every single color I tried has a beautiful smooth texture. The lighter shades are smooth and have very good pigment. The deeper tones are also smooth (no streaking or patchy texture).

In indoor natural light:

  • 194 Sensibilite is a light peachy pink

New Chanel Fall 2022 Le Vernis Nail Colors

August 17, 2022

Chanel Fall 2022 Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colors

The Chanel Fall 2022 Makeup Collection with new shades of Le Vernis Nail Color and Rouge Allure is here! They launched a beautiful color palette of neutrals and everything is stunning. I’ve split my review into two parts: I have my picks of the Le Vernis today and Rouge Allure Lipsticks swatches will be coming in a separate post. The new lipsticks are phenomenal.

There are 12 new shades of Le Vernis in neutral nude shades. I have 11 of them swatched for you today. All the colors applied smoothly with a full coverage finish except one of the shades (Denude is semi-sheer). I like that they have nudes with different undertones. Some are more beige/yellow/brown and others have a more pink undertone.

Chanel Fall 2022 Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colors

 

New colors I have are below (I’m missing 957 which I’m undecided about purchasing). I received 5 in PR and the others I ordered online. All shades are swatched with 2 coats.

  • 937 Harmonie
  • 939 Singularite
  • 941 Spontane
  • 943 Enigme
  • 945 Emotion
  • 947 Desir
  • 949 Denude
  • 951 Originel
  • 953 Essentiel
  • 955 Inspiration
  • 959 Infinite

937 Harmonie is my perfect creamy nude, a bit lighter than my skin tone for contrast

939 Singularite is a pretty pink nude, almost matches my skin tone if it were pink (this is deeper than Organdi)

945 Emotion is a rose berry neutral

953 Essentiel is also brown, a bit warmer and deeper than Originel

955 Inspiration is a gorgeous chestnut brown cream

959 Infinite is a perfect deep chocolate

All the colors performed well and I think they are all gorgeous. From a distance Desir and Infinite look almost identical, Desir is deeper and darker, Infinite has a bit more warmth. Based on how much I like Inspiration I think there is a very high chance I’ll also order the 957 color. If I do I’ll add the swatch to this post.

For those who want to know my current hand/nail care routine, it’s pretty much the same as what I have in my Hand and Nail Care Routine Favorites. I’ve also since added the Chanel L’Huile Camelia and Hermes Nail Oil to my routine.

New Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Tint and Blush

July 1, 2022

New Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Tint and Blush

Chanel added new complexion products to the Les Beiges lineup and I’ve been head over heels obsessed! I have a full review + looks for you today! I’ve been wearing the foundation every day since I bought it and think it’s going to be my go-to summer base.

I ordered these the second they launched online at Chanel.com and most of the blushes sold out almost immediately, luckily they have restocked all the colors online at Chanel!

Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Touch

Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Tint

There are 16 shades of the new Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Touch ($65 each for 20 ml/0.7 fl oz). I’ve been really loving the new foundation and my usual shade B40 is a great match. The formula has micro-droplet pigments suspended in a gel formula. This newer formula offers beautiful medium coverage with a lightweight feel, dewy finish and impressive lasting power.

It gives the skin a plump fresh glow in a healthy kind of way and I prefer it over the original Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint which I found a bit too sheer for my taste.

below: new vs original

Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Tint

I’ve used this for over a week now and found the best way to apply it is to pump onto the back of the hand and mix with a brush or sponge. Breaking up the pigments and mixing them into the gel formula before applying to skin is the best way to get smooth flawless coverage.

Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Tint

The Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Touch comes with a tiny brush and at first glance I suspected it would be a throw-away for me (it’s itty bitty!) but tons of you messaged me telling me it’s intended for concealing. I ended up trying it this week and was pleasantly surprised to find it perfect for blending cream product under the eye area or around the nose.

Les Beiges Water-Fresh Blush

Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Blush

There are 6 shades of the Les Beiges Water-Fresh Blush ($50 each for 15 ml/0.5 oz) and I was thrilled to see these finally landed in the US. After testing all six shades I have mixed feelings. They’re beautiful but they take some time to apply and blend.

These blushes have the same micro-droplet formula as the foundation. Chanel calls it MicroFluidic Technology. The pigments break apart and melt into the skin upon contact to give you a healthy glow. Application is best if you pump on the back of your hand and blend with a brush. I’ll take a brush and apply straight to the face and then blend with fingers. For me applying with just fingers doesn’t give enough color payoff. With just a brush I can’t blend around the edges well.

Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Blush

I absolutely loved the first color I tried Intense Coral which has great color payoff for a sheer natural looking blush. For the other shades my thoughts below:

  • Light Pink and Light Peach are so pale and sheer they did not show up on my skin tone (I’m the equivalent of MAC NC35, all my foundation shades in this post here)
  • Warm Pink has a bit more color but it still barely shows up, just gives me a natural almost skin-like glow
  • Intense Coral is the best I tried, it’s a gorgeous coral shade
  • Deep Apricot has good pigment, but the color pulls orangey on my skin, it’s not bad, but orange just isn’t really my color
  • Deep Bronze is a sheer brown, it has enough pigment to show up, looks very natural

Out of all the blushes I like Intense Coral and Deep Bronze the best. I really like the concept of a fresh glow, but I just wish the three lighter shades had the same level of pigment as the deeper colors.

Bottom line: I love the new Les Beiges Water-Fresh Complexion Touch and the Water-Fresh Blush in Intense Coral. The foundation has held up remarkably well on my skin even in hot humid weather (when set with powder, which I always do). If I had one negative thing to say about these it would be that they’re pricey for the size. Granted I’ve been doing some demos and swatching with these, but I’m nearly 1/3 of the way through the foundation. I would have loved it in a larger size just like the original version.

Chanel Les Beiges – Summer 2022

June 15, 2022

Chanel Les Beiges – Summer 2022

Chanel Les Beiges Summer 2022 has launched online at Chanel.com and I’m so excited to share a look! In today’s review we have a look at:

Les Beiges Illuminating Oil

Chanel Les Beiges Illuminating Oil

The Les Beiges Illuminating Oil is a multi-use dry oil for the face, body and hair. It has a clear base with golden shimmer suspended inside. Once you shake the bottle the shimmer floats inside. The oil has a subtle scent similar to the Les Beiges powders. The shimmer is hard to see unless direct sunlight or lights hit the skin. Once the light catches the shimmer you can see the skin has a subtle sun-kissed glow.

The shimmer will transfer to clothes (or furniture). As with any shimmer body product I think it’s fun to wear on the arms or shoulders for a night out. Or on the legs too!

Chanel Les Beiges Illuminating Oil

In natural light it looks like a glow like a regular body oil. In the sunlight you can see below on the left leg with oil there is a subtle glow/shimmer vs the right side (bare leg).

Left side with oil vs right side bare leg

Chanel Les Beiges Illuminating Oil

While the oil is formulated for face and hair too, I’ve only tried it on the body.

Les Beiges Oversize Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powder & Kabuki Brush

Chanel Les Beiges Oversize Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powder

The Les Beiges Oversize Kabuki Brush is a luxurious splurge and I love it. It’s soft, plush and super sized so you can easily use it on the chest or shoulders if you want to bronze up the body area. It comes in a little black pouch – similar material to the ones you find with the eyeshadow or blush compacts.

Chanel Les Beiges Oversize Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powders

There are three new powder bronzers this season in a supersized compact and I think they’re so fun. The Les Beiges Oversize Healthy Glow Sun-Kissed Powders have an ultra soft powder texture different from the other Les Beiges powders. This one is softer with a subtle luminous glow. I haven’t experienced any hard pan issues (like you might with the original matte ones) and it’s softer in texture compared to the luminous glow ones (ones with the embossed horizontal stripes).

  • Sunshine – Light is the lightest color. It almost matches my skin tone and just adds a flesh-toned glow on my skin. I would be curious to hear if fair toned readers find this light enough for them!
  • Sunkiss – Medium is my best bronze, has a warm golden finish to it.
  • Sunbath – Deep is a deeper bronze

The formula is so good and it blends into the skin beautifully. I hope they will add more deeper tones or a neutral/cool option in the future. Looks below wearing the Chanel No 1 de Chanel Foundation in B40 and the Les Beiges Natural Eyeshadow Palette in Intense, each look with a different lip.

Last is a look at the newest shade of the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream in 392 Soleil Tan Medium Bronze. This is a nice in between color and works perfectly for me. It does pull on the warm size but it’s not too warm. Texture is creamy and pigment is medium. Formula performs the same as the other two shades which I really like. I hope Chanel will continue to expand the color range! I like to apply it with the Brush No 101 but any cream product brush will work.

Overall some beautiful additions to the Chanel Beauty lineup. I really love the new oversized powder bronzers and the large kabuki sized brush is really fun. I am glad they’re expanding the color range and I hope they continue to do so in future collections. You can find the collection out now at Chanel.com.

They also added a new Water Fresh Complexion Tint and Water Fresh Blush online. I just ordered them so review to follow soon!

Chanel Le Vernis Summer Nails 2022

June 3, 2022

Chanel Summer Nails 2022

Chanel has launched the new Summer Nails Collection with six new shades of Le Vernis ($30), a new La Base Camelia ($30) and L’Huile Camelia Hydrating and Fortifying Oil ($32). Every single color is absolutely beautiful for summer. The Chanel team sent over the shades for review and to me they’re so perfect, I ordered backups (they’re THAT good!). The colors are available online at Chanel.com.

New Summer Nail Colors

Chanel Summer Nails 2022

There are 6 new Le Vernis Nail Colors inspired by the Sky, Sun and Sea. Chanel did an incredible job with everything from the shade undertone, opacity and smooth finish. Two coats is needed for all the shades. Only one of them applied a little streaky with the first coat but it smoothed out 100% without any issues with the second coat.

  • Rose Coquillage 925 is a perfect coral peach pink
  • Blanc Ecume 927 is a pure stark white, but still manages to have a bit of warmth so it doesn’t look like white out on the nails (your mileage may vary)
  • Pastel Sand 929 is a soft peach with that secret shimmer some Chanel nail polishes used to have, it has subtle gold sheen, but on the nails it’s more of a cream
  • Moon Shell 931 is the perfect lilac shade for summer, it has the perfect undertone to be flattering and not too pastel/white
  • Cap Corail 933 is a gorgeous bright orange coral
  • Sea Sea Green 935 is a really fun pale green

I really wanted to do a nail wheel swatch comparison to other Chanel & Hermes shades because I know so many of you will ask. I cannot find any extra wheels in my beauty closet but will try to get some and update this post in the next week. For now here are swatches of all six shades. Skintone I’m a Chanel B40/B50. I have been in the sun with a couple boat, beach + kayaking days so I’m starting to get my tan back.

New Nail Care

Chanel La Base Camelia andL’Huile Camelia Hydrating and Fortifying Oil

Chanel La Base Camelia andL’Huile Camelia Hydrating and Fortifying Oil

I’ve been a huge fan of the Chanel Le Gel Coat and Le Top Coat. Their previous base coat was nice but not great (in my opinion). The new La Base Camelia is a really beautiful one that hydrates, protects and smooths. I think it’s a really nice formula but I still like the OPI Natural Base Coat for a more affordable option. At this time it seems like they’ve discontinued the original base coat as the new La Base Camelia is the only one listed on Chanel.com now.

The new L’Huile Camelia Hydrating and Fortifying Oil is a camelia oil that comes in a squeeze tip applicator. The tip looks like it could be a sponge but it’s not. It has holes to dispense product. A little goes a long way so you don’t need a lot to cover and hydrate. I’ve only used it a couple times so far so I haven’t tested it long enough to speak to the long-term effects. I like it though. It makes the nails look and feel hydrated. Mine get super dry with the sand, sun, salt etc. I think it will be one I’ll use up entirely.

That wraps up my Chanel Summer Nail roundup! I really think every single shade is perfect. Sunglasses in the post are the Butterfly Sunglasses I hauled a few months ago. I’ll link my reel below if you want to see them in action on the face. You can order Chanel sunglasses online at Chanel.com but I’ve also spotted them in store at places like Neimans, Nordstrom and Saks.

The Terry Beach Bag is another splurge I did while in Miami a few months ago. I bought it at the Chanel boutique and it comes with a pouch and beach towel. They also had it in Black and Navy. I think by now there are other variations in stores too. I’ll link my unboxing/reel below on this one. So many of you asked for a link, unfortunately Chanel does not sell their handbags online. If you have a Chanel sales associate you have worked with they may be able to locate it for you.

Chanel Summer Nails 2022

What do you think about the Chanel Le Vernis nail colors? I’m not sure if they’ll be available at other retailers or of they’re a Chanel.com exclusive. At this time each shade has the “exclusive” label on the website. If you have your eye on any colors I’d recommend ordering soon. The nail colors usually sell out quickly!

Available at Chanel.com.

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait Review

March 30, 2022

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait

Chanel launched their new Rouge Allure L’Extrait ($55 each) which is their first refillable lipstick ($40 for the refills). I saw the collection earlier this month in Miami and hauled 6 of the 20 colors in the new launch. The Chanel team also sent a selection of colors so I had a few more bolds to share! They are available now online at Chanel.com.

A closer look in one of their beauty boutiques in the Brickell City Center below!

 

The Rouge Allure L’Extrait is one of the best high-pigment lipsticks I’ve tried. They are ultra creamy, smooth one swipe wonders with a comfortable hydrating feel. Formula adheres nicely to the lips (almost hugs them!) and stays put remarkably well. No bleeding, sliding, creeping!

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait review

These come in a slim black case with the pop up end. They are tiny for the price and since these are refillable the cases aren’t labeled on the bottom. If you have more than one you will have to pop open each lipstick to check the shade. The shade names are in tiny print on the gold tube casing which is hidden once you insert it into the base.

You do need the full case to use the lipstick. There is a click component in the base of the refill portion that allows you to twist it up. Without it you cannot twist up the lipstick.

There are two neutral colors, a few pinks and a wide range of reds, orange shades and bolds. For the red lipstick lover you will really love this launch because they’ve thought of every variation, brightness and undertone of red! For the neutral lip lover (like me) you will still find a couple of nice lighter options. I hope they add more neutrals!

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait review

Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait swatches

Colors I have:

  • 812 Beige Brut is a perfect flawless beige
  • 814 Beige Imperieux is a medium coral peach
  • 818 Rose Independant is a pretty rose pink
  • 822 Rose Supreme is a medium cool rose
  • 824 Rose Invincible is a deeper rose pink
  • 828 Brun Orgueilleux is a plum brown
  • 832 Rouge Libre is a blue red
  • 862 Brun Affirm is a brown pink red

Below swatches on the lips below! Quick note that most reds look REALLY red on my complexion. Also wearing:

You can find the Chanel Rouge Allure L’Extrait available now online at Chanel.com. Have you tried these yet? What did you think?
