I think they gonna renew the texture, or made it fluide, like the Blanc de Chanel...

Only Poudre Soleil Tan de Chanel are available from now on, so there will be new ones I think...

It will be discountinued, indeed! But fot a little oily skin ( let me say T-zone, dry cheeks) it is a great product! There's only one thing, never use any powder on top.. Some do, but it's better not, because the texture melts on your skin and only then it gave that natural 'professional' look....

Otherwise you can try the Vitalumiere Aqua, it is less shiny but stays comfortable on cheeks... Use over it the Vitalumiere powder to give more coverage when/if you need

I have dry cheeks and forehead, and Vitalumiere Aqua still looked awesome. Just not what I was going for, but it is a very nice foundation!

A review of Gardenia - Sari Dore, the other Rouge Coco in this collection, seen as the more orange shade in the skin swatch, seems to have first appeared in the Cote D'Azur collection in December 2010 (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Chanel Gardenia Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark rose pink with subtle golden micro-shimmer and shine. The color applies semi-opaque–almost covering my lip freckle but not entirely–and deposits color evenly. Like many other Rouge Cocos, the finish is shimmery and borders on frosty.

It looks like it is slightly less pink than Camelia (part of the permanent range of Rouge Cocos), but I don’t own it, so I couldn’t compare. For a more affordable comparison, you might try MAC Ramblin’ Rose, which may be noticeably rosier, though.

There is enough warmth from the golden micro-shimmer to make it wearable on warmer skin tones but not so much gold that those with cooler skin tones won't find it equally flattering. This is the kind of pink that looks good across skin tones, because it's not too pale or deep.

And the 'pinker' version (same source):

Quote:
Chanel Bronze Rose Soleil Tan de Chanel ($50.00 for 0.49 oz.) is the cool-toned companion to Bronze Corail in Chanel’s summer collection. Both variations are limited edition, and the biggest difference is in the last color: coral versus rose. After swatching and wearing the two, though, I noticed very little difference when actually worn!

In the pan, I see more noticeable variation in coloring, but when swatched, a lot of it gets lost. The first shade is a medium-dark tan with golden shimmer and sheen–it is slightly less warm than Bronze Corail. The second shade is an iridescent pinky peach with a icy white sheen, as compared to Bronze Corail’s shimmering beige (which I think is why when swirled, Bronze Corail can appear lighter–the lightness of the beige does more to lighten than the peachy shade in Bronze Rose).

The third shade is a reddened tan brown with a subtle gold sheen; it is lighter and more noticeably red compared to Bronze Corail. The final shade is a cool-toned bluish pink with a subtle sheen, as compared to the coral in Bronze Corail. When swirled together, Bronze Rose has a dirty, reddish tan look with a pale golden sheen. I found Bronze Corail to have a lighter overall appearance and more golden.

This one seemed darker than Bronze Corail, though they're both rather subtle when worn. I don't see these bronzers working as bronzers on deeper skin tones, but they should work nicely on lighter complexions. It's quite difficult to overdo the color here as well.

It's too dark for me in 20 I would LOVE to buy it, but the colour selection is so off. Oh well, it's Chanel's loss, not mine really (I don't need foundation, I only use it when going out)

^^depending on the country, you CAN get the foundations in 10 as the lightest shade . . . I don't know why they only go down to 20 in Europe . . . way more pale people than in the US!

Maybe they thought because the people here are so pale, they'd want to be more tanned. Not the best sales strategy if you ask me.

But that Pro Lumiere 20 really is a joke. It doesn't look good when you apply it, but after some time it gets even worse, more darker and kinda yellow.

Look what came home with me today



I applied it with a MAC 109 brush, and it really blends well even on my dry skin...and surprisingly it looks good on pale skin! OK so I don't look tanned, but I do look less dead (sorry about the hair, couldn't be bothered)



Notice how pale my neck is. And no, it's not gonna stay pale, I just wanted to show my real skin colour

I think I've said this before but I'm always truck by how pretty you are.

I also have super pale skin, so i usually run away from anything that say tan on the label, but I'm loving the effect on your skin.
