Chanel Energies et Puretes Collection | Review + Swatches

Chanel Energies et Puretes Collection Review Swatches Tweed Coralline Cherry Blossom Blush Plisse Lumiere de Chanel Jardins Eclatants Jardins de Lumiere Energie Vibration Corail Radieux Rose Ravissant

Coming to you today with a lil update after being absent for a few weeks because I've got a lot of craziness going on in my life right now...both the good kind and the bad kind! Anyway, my local Chanel counter recently got in the Energies et Puretes collection, which is soooo beautiful that I wish it had been the regular summer collection (bc I like this one a lot better if I'm being honest!).

Chanel Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Longwear Cream Eyeshadow Review Swatches Comparison

Chanel's Ombre Premiere Eyes Collection for Summer 2017 is finally here! It features 16 shades of an all new mono powder eyeshadow, the Ombre Premiere Longwear Powder Eyeshadow ($30 for 0.08 oz.), as well as 8 shades of the Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow ($36 for 0.14 oz.), which is a reformulation of the extremely popular Illusion d'Ombre formula. I have swatches of (almost) all the colours in both lines here...I've placed an order for the ones I'm missing, so I'll probably have swatches of those up next week!

Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss | Swatches, Review & Photos

chanel rouge coco gloss swatches review photos comparison

 For Spring 2017, Chanel released the Rouge Coco Glosses ($30 for 0.19 oz.), a permanent line of lipglosses intended to replace the old Glossimer formula and to complement the permanent Rouge Coco line. I've got them all swatched and reviewed - it's safe to say I love em! From colour selection to formula to applicator, I think these are definitely an improvement over the old Glossimer formula, which I liked but didn't especially love. Keep reading for more photos and lots of swatches!

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur & Coco Code Harmonie de Blush, Spring 2017

chanel le rouge crayon de couleur coco code harmonie de blush swatches review
 Chanel's new Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur ($37) for Spring 2017 just hit counters, so I stopped by my local Saks to check them out. The product is a chubby-stick style, twist-up lipstick in pencil form that offers semi-transparent to opaque coverage (depending on the shade) with a luminous, glossy finish that is hydrating and pretty long-lasting (for a glossy finish lip product).

Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation | Swatches & Review

Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation Swatches & Review
It's been awhile since I've done a foundation Friday, but I've got a very worthy pick for you all today! Chanel launched it's brand new Le Teint Ultra Tenue Ultrawear Flawless Foundation ($60 for 1 oz.) earlier this fall. It is said to give a fluid, seamless, second skin effect, with light diffusing complexes that give the skin luminosity and absorbent powders that give the skin a long-wearing, matte finish. To my own eye, the formula is clearly meant to replace Chanel's previous long-wearing, matte finish formula: Perfection Lumiere, which was discontinued awhile ago and which was previously one of my holy grail foundations.

Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Collection, Fall 2016 | Swatches & Review

 Okey dokey you guys. Chanel is bringing out the big guns with its release of the all new Rouge Allure Ink ($37 for 0.20 oz.) for Fall 2016. From the promo photos, I thought the colour range would be kind of mundane...but I couldn't have been more wrong! I clearly got lulled into a false sense of security by the disappointing Rouge Coco Stylo. Rouge Allure Ink is anything BUT a disappointment. So far I haven't found anywhere online where these are available, but I'll be sure to include links once I do!

5 Juicy Coral Lipglosses for Spring

Glossy, juicy, luscious lips are what I'm after pretty much all the time, but there's something about spring in particular that makes me gung-ho to break out my gloss. When it comes to gloss, there's no colour I love wearing more to achieve that freshly bitten, juicy, watery look than warm corals. Today I've rounded up five of my favourite warm coral glossies for you to peachy peeps to consider for spring!

Beauty Bulletin, No. 2

It's officially the weekend, and I've got my bi-weekly beauty digest of beauty products and launches to share with you! Let me remind everyone that Sephora's "Spring Black Friday" Beauty Insider sale has commenced. Right now, VIB's get 15% off their purchases with the code VIBNOTE, from April 8-13, and Beauty Insiders get 15% off their purchases from April 14-20 (I think) with the code LOVENOTE (I think). Alright, now on to the good stuff...

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo | Swatches & Review

Rouge Coco Stylo Swatches & Review Conte Lettre Article Roman Script Histoire
 Chanel recently launched a new lip product called 'Rouge Coco Stylo' ($37 for 0.07 oz.) for Spring. I've swatched all the shades here and have tested it for wear time. Honestly, I am pretty underwhelmed. First of all, almost $40 for almost half the amount of product in a normal lipstick (which is usually 0.12 oz. for most brands)?! It's a complete rip-off for the amount of product, in my opinion. I really can't imagine my conclusion being different even if the lipstick were amazing and completely unique with the most wonderful colour range imaginable, but that doesn't matter, because Rouge Coco Stylo is none of those things.

Today I've got photos & swatches for you of Chanel's brand new, re-formulated Le Vernis nail polish collection ($28 for 0.4 oz.), which is comprised of a 5-free, long-wearing formula utilizing the gel nail polish technology which has been on the vanguard of nail polish formulations for the last few years. I haven't tested enough to give you information on the wear time or on the performance of the new Gel Top Coat, but I'll update this post with my findings in the coming week. Meanwhile enjoy the photos & swatches, and have a ballin V-day! Xx
