Holidays 2021: Passionate Red

The red holiday thread has become a tradition. Each year there are a lot of new gift sets and flacons specially designed for the holidays that I find perfectly matched to announce and celebrate the season. Red is the color that makes a statement; it's passionate, bold, and challenging, and in many cases suits so well on the perfume flacons – just remember the limited Chanel No5! If you have...

Smell of success: How Chanel No 5 gained a sprinkling of stardust

As the fragrance turns 100, Chanel’s perfumer-in-chief Olivier Polge describes what it takes to create and curate a classic brandThrough the floor-to-ceiling windows of his seventh-floor office at Chanel’s chic Parisian HQ, Olivier Polge can look out over the French capital. From here, in the western suburb of Neuilly-sur-Seine, much of the city’s iconic skyline is in full view: the Eiffel Tower, mansard roofs, and the greenery of Bois de Boulogne; the Sacré-Cœur atop Montmartre opposite.It’s a ...

Chanel Or Baume Essentiel Review & Swatches

Or Chanel Or Baume Essentiel ($45.00 for 0.28 oz.) has a transparent, balmy base with barely-there, warm gold pearl and a dewy sheen. The texture was lightweight, emollient, and very balm-like–high slip but thin, spreadable, and glossy in its finish. It had very sheer coverage, as marketed, though the effect of the pearl was slightly more noticeable in person than it appeared in the photos I took. The finish was glossy and didn’t dry ...

Chanel Emblematique & Independante Rouge Allure Lipsticks Reviews & Swatches

Emblematique (147) Chanel Emblematique (147) Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour ($38.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a vivid, medium red with strong, cool undertones and a luminous sheen with barely-there micro-shimmer. It had nearly opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which adhered smoothly to my lips and glided on comfortably without being too heavy or too emollient. It stayed on nicely for six hours, left a faint stain behind, and was...

Chanel No. 5 Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

No 5 Chanel No 5 Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow ($62.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a new, limited edition holiday quad that included three varying shades of gold paired with a warmer satin-finished black. The first shade was more sparkly and likely better used as a “top coat” or with a dampened brush and/or an adhesive primer/spray to minimize fallout and improve coverage/application. Ingredients CALCIUM SODIUM...

Chanel Or Ivoire Illuminating Fluid Review & Swatches

Or Ivoire Chanel Or Ivoire Fluide Enlumineur ($48.00 for 1.0 fl. oz.) is a light-medium gold with warmer, peachier undertones and a pearly sheen. It is supposed to be something that can be applied “all over” or used as a standalone highlighter on the high points of the face. It has a thin, fluid consistency that was lightweight but dried down after thirty seconds or less; for more targeted application, I found putting a little on the...

It had mostly opaque, buildable color coverage that adhered evenly across my lips and was forgiving of lip texture (like flakes/dryness). The lipstick had a lightweight, lightly emollient texture that was thin but not clingy, which ensured it didn’t slide around d...

It had semi-sheer color coverage in a single layer, and I found it was best applied with a flat, synthetic brush pressed onto the lid for the initial layer. After letting the initial layer dry down, going back in with the included applicator to pat on addition...

What formulas have a unique texture?

ColourPop Super Shocks, which more are familiar with, though it was a texture that MAC, Dior, and Chanel had as well (prior!). The spongy, cream-to-powder formula is very interesting and less standard for sure, though.

Chanel №5: What Makes It What It Is?

May 5th, 1921, is considered the birthday of the Chanel №5 fragrance, which celebrates its centenary this year.

Chanel N°5 – EVOLUTION OF THE BOTTLE

With N°5, Gabrielle Chanel created an abstract fragrance that changed the history of perfumery, a welcome shock to the senses that was impossible to associate with any particular flower. As for its presentation, Chanel designed a minimalist bottle that allowed the amber color of the fragrance to take center stage. The flat shape, similar to that of a hip flask, was designed for movement and speed... Read full article: Chanel N°5 – EVOLUTION OF THE BOTTLE from Fragrantica Perfumes and Colognes ...

Prune Intense (36) Chanel Prune Intense (36) Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($34.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a brighter, reddish-berry with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation in one stroke, and it was better applied with a more fluid stroke and to avoid layering too much back and forth as the texture had a tendency to clump if I did more than two passes in the same place. It las...
