Chanel Orange Enigmatique & Rouge Paradoxal Rouge Allure Ink Liquid Lip Colours Review & Swatches

Orange Enigmatique (838) Chanel Orange Enigmatique (838) Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colour ($40.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a light-medium brown with moderate, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage, which was closer to how it was marketed compared to other shades in the range. The liquid lipstick had a very spreadable, almost watery texture, so while it felt thin, it still delivered higher coverage and ...

Clinique Red Hot & Red-Handed Pop Reds Lipstick Review & Swatches

Red Hot Clinique Red Hot Pop Lip Colour + Primer Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.13 oz.) is a bright, medium red with neutral-to-warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that applied well to my lips with even color that softened my lip lines, so it was quite flattering to wear.

Low Key (74) Chanel Low Key (74) Rouge Allure Velvet ($40.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, dusty pinky-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff that applied fairly evenly but settled into my lip lines. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and thin without being clingy with a very velvety glide that didn’t feel as emollient as it looked on my lips. It wasn’t the most forgiving formula of lip ...

Clarins Brown Sugar Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Brown Sugar (04) Clarins Brown Sugar (04) 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.1 oz.) includes two more shimmery shades, one satin shade, and one matte shade. They had medium to opaque color coverage, were fairly easy to apply and blend out, and lasted around eight hours. The brand claimed that their eyeshadows would last for 12 hours, though, which I could only achieve with primer underneath. Ingredients ...

Chanel Fall 2021 Ombre Premiere Laques Reviews & Swatches

Lame Ivoire (39) Chanel Lame Ivoire (39) Ombre Premiere Laque ($36.00 for 0.2 oz.) is a darker, champagne gold with warm, golden tones but not to the point of leaning orange/peach. It had a smooth, fluid consistency that was slightly watery initially, but then it dried down to a more transfer-resistant finish. I liked applying this best with a fingertip or a fluffy brush for a sheerer wash of color. For higher opacity, I’d recommend...

Clinique Red Carpet, Red-y-to-Wear, Roses are Red Pop Reds Lipstick Review & Swatches

Red Carpet Clinique Red Carpet Pop Lip Colour + Primer Lipstick ($19.50 for 0.13 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark red with neutral undertones and a cream finish. The lipstick had a lightweight, lightly creamy texture that was thin without feeling overly clingy, so it had more shine than it actually felt–that was a good thing as it ensured the color stayed in place. It had opaque pigmentation in one layer, which lasted nicely for five hour...

Chanel Ombre (608) Joues Contraste Blush Review & Swatches

Ombre (608) Chanel Ombre (608) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.17 oz.) is a soft, light-medium brown with neutral-to-cool undertones and a matte finish. There was a grayish cast when worn more heavily, though it seemed rosier when applied semi-sheer to medium. The texture was silky-smooth, finely-milled but not overly powdery, and picked up well with a brush for an even, smooth application of powder. It had medium, buildable pigm...

The texture was lightweight, thinner, and almost watery...

Tom Ford Rose Prisme Eye Color Quad Review & Swatches

Rose Prisme Tom Ford Beauty Rose Prisme Eye Color QuadTom Ford Beauty Rose Prisme Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new, very light color story featuring four shimmery shades of gel-powder eyeshadow. Normally, this formula is reliable and tends to be the better and higher-performing one from the brand’s quads, but three of the four shades did not feel as creamy and seemed to have less slip, which made them have a thinner, drie...

It had semi-opaque color coverage that applied evenly across my lips and didn’t settle into my lip lines.

Metallic Denim Tom Ford Beauty Metallic Denim Eye Color QuadTom Ford Beauty Metallic Denim Eye Color Quad ($88.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes two warmer, shimmery neutral hues with two deeper, more intense shimmery hues. The third shade looks bluer in the pan than in practice, as the base was quite dark and charcoal-like. The formula on three of the four shades felt a little drier and thinner with less slip compared to most of the brand’s ...

It had opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and ...

Clarins Fairy Tale Eyeshadow Quad Review & Swatches

Fairy Tale (01) Clarins Fairy Tale (01) 4-Color Eyeshadow Palette ($43.00 for 0.1 oz.) includes two matte shades and two shimmer shades, though one shimmer had micro-sparkle throughout and worked better with a dampened brush. The two mattes were a little powdery compared to other mattes in the formula that I’ve tried, but they were fairly pigmented and blendable. They lasted a decent length of time–in the grand scheme of things–but di...

There was some variety in depth and finish, so I could see lighter and darker looks, though I expect looks to lean a little smoky overall. All four shades had higher coverage, were blendable, and picked up readily ...

Chanel Soleil Tan Bronze Bronzing Cream Review & Swatches

Soleil Tan Bronze Chanel Soleil Tan Bronze Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream ($50.00 for 1.06 oz.) is a light, golden brown with warmer undertones and a natural finish–not quite dewy but not quite matte either. The texture was emollient, smooth, and had a gel-like glide that worked well over bare skin and on top of foundation. The formula wasn’t prone to lifting up base products, even when they were more matte. It appeared to have more se...

Chanel Sunkissed Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid Review & Swatches

Sunkissed Chanel Sunkissed Sheer Healthy Glow Highlighting Fluid ($48.00 for 1 oz.) is a light-medium, champagne gold with warmer undertones and ultra-fine pearl that gave it a barely-there, luminous sheen when applied to skin. It had a more watery consistency, and it was marketed to work all-over, mixed in with other products, or patted on the high points of the face/body to highlight, which made it an intentionally sheerer formula...

Chanel Tender Healthy Glow Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Tender Chanel Tender Les Beiges Healthy Glow Natural Eyeshadow Palette ($65.00 for 0.16 oz.) includes two more shimmery shades, three more semi-matte to satin shades, and one more sparkly shade. The worst performing shade was the sparkly one, as it was very sheer, didn’t build up, and translated very little to my lid and had lots of fallout, so it was hard to work with in a meaningful way. The other four shades were much better with...
