Chanel Le Rouge Collection No 1 - Swatch and First Impression

The New Fall 2016 Collection from Chanel is out and it is fabulous!

I ordered a few items from the new line and have been dying to share them with you!



Spoiler alert:  They are all perfect and I recommend them all!  I am going to be ordering a few more items from the collection, so stay tuned!

Chanel Les 4 Ombres - 268 Candeur Et Experience


This palette is going to be great for fall and winter looks. It can create wearable daytime/work looks as well as intense dramatic eyes for night time and winter parties.


268 - Candeur Et Experience


Medium Brown, Light Brown, Red, Dark Brown

I usually purchase a new palette for each season, but with this one, there is no need.

This palette has four smoky, warm toned colours.  A light, medium and dark brown as well as a brown based red.

All shadows are pigmented, smooth and buttery.  They apply evenly and opaque.  They blend well without muddling together.  The red can be applied lightly for a sheer accent or built up for maximum intensity.

They are not powdery or dry.  There is no fall out in the pan or on the eye.

This palette is amazing!

Chanel Rouge Allure - 168 Rouge Ingenue

Chanel lipstick is expensive and legendary.


168 - Rouge Ingenue


168 - Rouge Ingenue

This one is no exception.

Smooth, opaque after one swipe, moisturizing and long lasting (for a crème).

I lined my lips with Kylie Cosmetics Candy K and then applied the Chanel in two quick swipes.

Rouge Ingenue is a brown based nude.  On me it has a cool undertone.  It gives the perfect nude lip to compliment the Candeur Et Expereince shadow palette.

Total win!

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Gloss - 530 Rouge Radical

I wasn't sure what a nail gloss was when I ordered this.  From the look of the product in the ar, it was going to apply as a sheer bright red.


530 - Rouge Radical


One Coat Application


On the nails it goes on opaque and more of a bright, bright pink red.  The formula is a jelly type base.  It is fun to apply, because it is almost like magic!

The colour keeps photographing as an orange red, but it is more pink/Christmas red.

I am on day two with no chipping.  I did not apply a top coat, because the gloss on this formula is so beautiful I didn't want to cover it up.

This colour makes me hum Christmas carols and is going to be on heavy rotation with the OPI Washington DC polishes.

Bonus Review:  Nars Outer Limits Shadow

Outer Limits is a re-release of a LE collection from a year or so ago.  It sold out immediately and I missed out.  When I saw it was included in their new line of metallic, I scooped it right up.


Outer Limits


Rose Gold

This colour is a metallic, neon rose gold.

It is sheer and glittery and is perfect over a rose gold or metallic pink crème eyeshadow.

There is a huge amount of fall out with this eye shadow.  I don't have an issue with this as I love the look of glitter fall out (weird I know).

If fall out bothers you, skip this one.  If you love a glittery eye and fall out is no big deal, order this up!

I want to try the rest of the colours in the line up.  I love a good glitter.

Well, there is my little review with some swatches for you all!

I hope you have been well and will talk with  you again in two days when I post my Luxury SLG wishlist!

Giveaway Update:
No one entered (super sad face).  I will hold it again in the future, with some other goodies thrown in!

Take Care,
Jen
