Omg, seriously? Why on earth do they think we don't need the other shades? It's absolutely ridiculous, do they think we love wearing foundation a shade too dark?

My anger is not directed towards you ofcourse, Diedejan, but do you happen to know WHY we get so limited choice?

They always make a collection for America, Europe and Asia... So, for Asia the most brightest shades are sold the best, for America is that similar with the darker shades. For europe we have a mix between yellow toned and pink and a few in between.

Only in the Make-up Studio's ( Harvey Nichols London ec.) you get the whole collection.

How do they know how the lighter shades will sell in Europe...if they're not available?

It makes no sense to me. I am not buying their foundation because of the limited choice of colours. They apparently do not understand that they are losing money on this. I'm guessing I can't be the only one.

I used to go straight to Estee Lauder for foundation because I knew Chanel didn't stock any shade that would come close to looking natural on me. Years later, nothing has changed, my skin is still the same shade and my money is still going to other companies who have catered for my - fairly common - colouring.

Anyhow, a closer look at some of the lip shades from the autumn collection (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry red with a hint of plum. When worn, it is dark without being overwhelmingly so; it’s a softened dark, if that makes any sense! There is a hint of shine, and the lip color really seems to melt into the natural lip and ends up looking rather natural. It’s a very fitting shade for fall, and I think it is incredibly easy to wear, particularly for those who tend to stay away from darker lip colors. This is dark without being dominating.

Chanel Glossimers ($28.50 for 0.19 oz.) include two new shades for fall (although, the website also lists Giggle, it’s not on Chanel’s official fall release). Pampille is a sheer pink, while Braise is a reddish brown.
  • Pampille is more like a sheer beige-peach with champagne shimmer. I didn’t see a lot of pink in the swatch. On lips, it’s mostly colorless and adds a glossy shine with shimmer.
  • Braise is a semi-sheer plummy-red with red, copper, and gold shimmer. The color applied evenly and gave lips a fuller look.
Pampille is very much like any number of sheer lipglosses. There really is no defining characteristic to it that makes it stand out amongst numerous sheer glosses. Braise has more of a berry color and has shimmer, but it is similar to MAC Looks Like Sin. It’s also a more refined version of MAC Decorative.

Yes (in the US). Macy's should have them soon.
In the meantime, try Saks or the Chanel Boutique.

A look at the Quad (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Chanel Prelude Eyeshadow Quad ($57.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains four cool-toned shades for fall. According to Chanel’s fall press release, this is new and being added to the permanent range. This is a lovely mix of colors that complement each other and will work together in numerous variations for soft, neutral looks to heavier, smokier looks. The finishes are all slightly pearled or shimmery but not too shimmered or frosted.

The eyeshadows are soft and silky smooth; very finely milled without being powdery or chalky. They apply beautifully and sit well against the skin, because they nearly melt once applied and blend with great ease. There were no issues with texture or pigmentation in any of these four shades. Soft where they should be soft, intense where they should be intense.

The upper left shade is a purple-tinged taupe brown with multi-colored micro-shimmer, and it has a shimmery finish. It reminded me of a shimmery version of Burberry Taupe, as well as a less metallic MAC Hint of Sapphire. Inglot’s #434 is much more intense, with a blacker base, and reads more purple. Giorgio Armani’s #1 Eyes to Kill is much more intense, but it has a similar multi-colored shimmer.

On the upper right, there is a warm, metallic-finished ivory gold. It’s subtler and less yellow compared to theBalm’s Devilish Danielle, while MAC Short Shorts is more similar, but it leans a little yellower (same with MAC Manila Paper.

The shade on the bottom left is a soft beige-taupe with a pearled sheen. I couldn’t think of any close shades to this, other than Estee Lauder Tempting Mocha, which appears a bit darker.

Our final shade is a blackened-brown purple with a satin sheen. It’s very intense and bold; it could work well as an eyeliner, too. theBalm’s Feisty Felicia was the closest shade I could find, and it has a very shimmered finish in comparison.

It is reminiscent of a few past Chanel quads, actually. It’s not quite Beiges de Chanel, though I heard a few wonder if it was. The only shade that is similar is the blackened purple. It’s a bit like Stupendous, but the purple-ish shade is much lighter and browner, but the beige-taupe shades are similar.

And her view on the pot eyeshadows (same source):

Quote:
Chanel Illusion d’Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow ($36.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a new product for fall, and it comes in six different shades. Chanel describes these as: “This intensely shimmering long-wear eyeshadow offers true versatility. An innovative gel texture that is both soft and cushiony allows it to be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner. Includes a specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula.”

I think the most common question I got asked regarding these was, “How do these compare to Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Intense?” The easy answer: they don’t. They’re in glass pots with black lids, and they’re really quite differennt otherwise. The formulas are not the same at all. There is such a drastic difference in the texture alone that they do not invite comparison. In terms of color, there may be similarities, but that is no different than comparing any eyeshadow to either of these products. It’s like comparing a the formula of a cream eyeshadow to that of a powder eyeshadow. The texture of these is most like Buxom’s Stay There eyeshadows but these are springier.
  • Fantasme is a bright white with silvery-white shimmer. Of the six, this was the only one that I would categorize as sheer. This is more like white and silver shimmer spread through a clear base. It adds sparkle rather than color. MAC’s Pearl Reflects Glitter is most comparable, but it is a chunkier glitter and will need an adhesive base or modifier to get it to stay (and last I heard, MAC’s Glitters were not eye safe).
  • Emerveille is a soft peach with a hint of brown and a champagne shimmer-sheen. theBalm’s Luscious Lani is very similar in color, perhaps a touch less peach. It seems like it would also be comparable to Benefit’s RSVP.
  • Illusoire is a smoky, purple-mauve over a grayish-brown base with a silvery sheen. This has a frostier finish, compared to the subtly metallic finish of Emerveille. It is similar to MAC Hint of Sapphire, but it doesn’t have the multi-colored shimmer (however, it applies infinitely better). It’s a little taupe, but it does lean purple, so it’s not a true taupe. It ends up looking rather similar to the grayish-purple shade from the same collection’s Prelude Eyeshadow Quad, just with a more shimmery finish.
  • Epatant is a smoky, muted taupe with a hint of green with an antique gold shimmer-sheen. MAC Greensmoke is much darker and greener, while Make Up For Ever #84 is closer in overall color/feel, it is more intense.
  • Mirifique is a dark black with multi-colored shimmer and larger silver sparkle. I can’t think of a dupe for this particular shade, because the way the glitter sits on the black base makes it different. Perhaps MAC Black Tied, but Black Tied is a weaker formula with less color payoff.
  • Ebloui is a burgundy brown with warm, red undertones and multi-colored shimmer that is dominated by gold and cranberry. On me, my yellower undertones pull out the brown tones, while I would expect pinker undertones to pull out the burgundy tones. I couldn’t find a dupe for this one; it’s brown yet burgundy. It might be duped with a mix of Urban Decay Gash and MAC Cranberry.
The texture of these is bizarre–they’re spongy but they bounce back. I imagine this is the texture most expected out of MAC Big Bounce Eyeshadows, actually. They are a gel-based formula, but they have the thickness of a cream, creaminess of a mousse, and springiness of a sponge. It spreads really nicely and evenly on the lid without being sheer (unless you deliberately apply a minute amount).

I found five of the six to be nicely pigmented with no concerns for lack of color payoff–Fantasme was the only one I found lacking in that department. The colors themselves are soft and subtle, with an edge of smokiness, and they tend to be more than just one flat color, so they will easily take on different tones depending on how they’re worn, what they’re paired with, and the undertones in the skin.

On me, these wear twelve hours (worn alone, no primer) without creasing, fading, migrating, or smudging. They apply evenly over the lid, and they’re blendable for long enough to give you time to soften any edges but are never fully wet, so they don’t gather into the creases and lines of the eye before it fully sets. Once it sets, it really doesn’t budge.

The brush included with each shade is actually useful, though in all honesty, it’ll be thrown into a drawer (along with all of those velvety pouches that I don’t use but can’t bear to toss). It works, and it does work well with these–it’s a nice touch, because it’s a quality brush with a thin, angled edge to allow for lining but with enough area to also apply all-over the lid. I prefer brushes with longer handles, but this is one of the better brushes I’ve seen included with a product.

Fantasme, again, was the only shade that was less-than-stellar, and of course, it would not earn the same marks as these do overall or as the other shades. It is one of six, and it is the only one with any reason for a reduction in rating. I would give it a 7 on pigmentation and 8.5 on texture. Again, this is why I prefer reviewing individual shades rather than groups of shades in one post!

Extremely poor judgement on their part. They've never even offered a wide variety of shades in Europe so how they can predict sales without even trying is silly and stupid. There's a reason people flock to brands like MAC. Despite their quality at times they offer a wider choice.

A look at the Peridot vernis (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Chanel Peridot Le Vernis ($25.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is easily one of the most buzzed about items from Chanel’s fall collection. I just received mine last night (all polish has to be shipped ground when ordered via Chanel, aka takes ten days to get to me here on the west coast!), and it looked absolutely stunning in the bottle. Depending on the angle, the bottle read more of a murky greenish-gold flanked by edges of indigo and teal to an almost spring green with an edge of antique gold and indigo ribboning.

Peridot is opaque in two coats, and on my nails, it’s greenish-gold with a real murky quality to it. I keep using the word “murky,” but it’s the only one that keeps coming to mind. Along the edges of my nails, I can see a slight darkening of green and almost teal. As amazing as the bottle looks, I don’t think the duochrome ends up translating as strongly on the nail. It is there, and it’s subtle–and still more noticeable in person as you move your hands around in the light. As far as Chanel polishes go, it is certainly what one would expect from high-end polish–different, nuanced, and not-quite-dupeable.

I don’t have anything that’s exactly like Peridot. The subtle duochrome makes it difficult to dupe, but there are similar shades–they just tend to be the dominant shade of that murky green-gold. China Glaze Peace on Earth is deeper and greener. In a trio of duochromes, ORLY It’s Not Rocket Science, SpaRitual Optical Illusion, and China Glaze Zombie Zest all have a murky green quality mixed with gold along with a duochrome effect–but they are quite different from Peridot. You can compare all of them by dragging them side-by-side in the Swatch Gallery.

This shade is limited edition. The nice thing about Chanel limited editions is they are often available for a couple weeks before they do eventually sell out–but at least you don’t have to stalk the website during the wee hours of the nights. It has been my experience that counters do often sell out much quicker, once they get their stock in.

The formula is nice on Peridot; it’s thin without being watery or sheer–two coats is enough for an opaque result–and even though there is a metallic finish, it was easy to control brush strokes. Given that I’ve had this shade for less than twenty-four hours, I couldn’t tell you how this particular shade wears. In my experience with Chanel polishes, I get around a week’s worth of wear with minor tip wear, when used with a top and base coat (I usually use Zoya’s Armor and Anchor)–it’s around average for me, so it wears well but I do get a little more wear out of a few other brands. To be fair, I can’t think of a brand that does chip on me, though.
Someone in the comments section added:
Quote:
I find that there is a very beautiful blue hue when you see Peridot inside the bottle, but once applied, it turns more into sort of a lemony-gold, with olive shadows, and you lose all of that beautiful blue hue that you could see in the bottle. Seems like something I would buy in a heartbeat, but probably regret it because it doesn’t meet my expectancies, exactly what happened with Mimosa and Morning Rose…
