It still sounds like Complice is the winning eyeshadow from this particular collection, in terms of use and performance... Christine states that on her eye, she used "Chanel Eclaire on inner lid, Burberry Midnight Brown on outer lid" (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Chanel Eclaire Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.05 oz.) is described as “sheer gold.” It’s a pale yellow gold with a soft, frosted metallic sheen. theBalm Snobby is similar but a smidgen yellower. Bare Escentuals Aspire is more orange. theBalm Wild Child is lighter. Urban Decay Eldorado is a hair yellower. Buxom Poodle is lighter. Giorgio Armani #1 Madreperla is a bit more orange-toned. Giorgio Armani #18 is similar but a bit paler.

Gah! Chanel! Of all the shades you label as “sheer,” this one? It’s not sheer! What kind of madness are you trying to create? Furtif was sheer. This is pigmented! Opaque! Rich in color! It might be a soft shade, but there’s not much underlying sheerness. The texture is silky-smooth, ultra-finely milled, so you could certainly sheer it out, but it packs a a fair dosage of color without having to pack it on. On the lid, it’s pretty pigmented; not totally opaque, but it’s close. It blends out easily, because it’s so soft, resulting in a smidgen of powderiness.

When I wore it, there was very light fading after eight hours along the lash line and outer edge, but it was mostly intact and there was no creasing to be seen. It has the same look, feel, and resulting shimmer/sparkle of Complice, which was a beautiful color for all over the lid. If Chanel hadn’t used the word “sheer” to describe this, it’d be just as good. It’s a little too pigmented to be sheer–you shouldn’t have to barely touch the pan of color to get sheer color!

Something about these colours reminds me more of chalks from a schoolroom than eyeshadows (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Chanel Premier Regard Eyeshadow Quad ($58.00 for 0.24 oz.) consists of four shades, which the brands describes as “taupe brown, tender pink, beige, and intense black.”

The first shade is a lightly gray-tinted medium-dark brown with subtle coppery-brown micro-shimmer over a satiny sheen. It has good color payoff, and it applies smoothly and evenly. MAC Superwatt is similar but more metallic, lighter, and warmer. MAC Omega is a smidgen lighter. theBalm Celebrational is grayer. Inglot #342 is grayer, darker, and matte. Urban Decay Midnight Rodeo is more shimmery.

Beside the taupe shade, there’s a pale, light pink with subtle yellow undertones and decent color payoff–but it’s powdery. It blends out easily but almost to nothing, so you have to pack it on and then only blend out the edges with care. This color barely shows up on me (I’m about medium in color). MAC Sugar Snack is a several shades darker. NARS Douce France is a smidgen whiter. Bare Escentuals Giddy is a little darker.

Next, we have a pale golen peach with a satiny sheen. It has decent pigmentation but also has some powderiness, like the pink shade, that made it easy to blend but it was also easy to make it disappear. Dolce & Gabbana Cocoa is similar but matte. Inglot #328 is identical as far as I can tell. Inglot #330 is lighter.

The final shade is a dark black with a subtle cool-brown base and a matte finish. It has good color payoff, and it is rather intense. I used it very, very lightly with an extremely fluffy brush so that it would not overwhelm the other shades in the quad. The color compares favorably with blacks like theBalm Serious and MAC Carbon.

I love a good neutral quad. Chanel’s Kaska Beige and Beiges de Chanel are two of my favorites. I was kind of hoping that this might be in that vein; something gorgeous and subtle and neutral but effortlessly flattering. I think on some complexions, this might sing a bit louder than it did for me. It just washes together, and the textures were more powdery than anticipated. It has something to do with the two pale shades in the quad being paired with something nearly black that makes it a lot more stark and less simple to use. I wore all four shades together, and they were mostly intact after eight hours; the two lighter colors were a little faded, but the darker shades looked the same as they did initially.

It's a decent-to-good quad, but I don't think it's going to work well on light-medium to medium-dark complexions; you either have to be really pale or deeper to have the color differences really show up. The black shade is a little cool-toned compared to the overall warmth of the other shades.

The September relaunch of Rouge Allure (beaut.ie):

Quote:
And headed our way this September is a line of 16 really great lipsticks. Chanel has relaunched and reformulated the entire Rouge Allure line, so the shades are more intense yet more comfortable to wear than ever before.

While red is the main event, the new range also includes nudes, pinks, oranges and browns.

And that’s not all. Joining these on counter will be five matching shades of Le Vernis, €22, in Beige – and four re-releases: Pirate, Holiday, Coromandel and Rouge Noir. Four lip liners round out the collection – they’re €21 each, and they come with a handy sharpener and a decent little brush head at one end.

But back to the lipstick, which is the main event. I’m delira to report that the new formula is gorgeous – we’re getting vibrant colour and full coverage, teamed with a high shine, glossy finish and a nice bit of slip. It’s packed full of emollients and antioxidants like sweet almond oil and green tea and it’s really comfortable to wear.

Red is a high maintenance shade so regular touch ups are a given – but that’s no hardship. Thankfully, the fab packaging hasn’t changed: sleek, black and gold, the bullet is housed in a sprung case; just push down and the tube clicks open to reveal the colour within. This is a joy to whip out of the handbag.

Priced at €30.50, the new Rouge Allure range will hit counters on September 14th. I’ll be counting the days.

Hmmph. This season's vibe seems very late 70s/early 80s to me.

Does anyone know if Chanel still makes a fiber mascara?

I bought the Provocation polish at FNO and it's my fav colour at the moment. The Chanel vending machines at Covent Garden, where you got the FNO Chanel make up , were simply insane.

I managed to get my hands on the last Mat Lumiere foundation in my tone at my local shop. So sad that it's being discontinued

Finding a new foundation is going to be hard..

From the Holiday 2012 collection - this soft pink blush is my most likely purchase from the range, given that I'm super-pale (temptalia.com):

Quote:
Chanel Star Dust Joues Contraste ($43.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “shimmering soft pink.” It’s a pale, yellow-toned pink with golden shimmer and sparkle. NARS Undress Me is actually similar in color, but it has chunky glitter in it. MAC Launch Away is darker, brighter. MAC Crew is a little darker. MAC Flower Fantasy is more frosted. Chanel Brompton Road is very similar. Chanel Pink Cloud is similar–more frosted. Benefit Hervana is a little darker and matte.

It’s a really pale color even in the pan, so it’s only going to be a blusher on light complexions. On medium to dark complexions, it’ll be more of a highlighter. It’s true-to-pan color–it’s just so light in the pan that it’s not going to work as a blush for some–but it never looked chalky on.

The texture is so, so soft–like silk–and finely-milled! It applied smoothly and was a cinch to blend out. I was extremely surprised with the way this looked on the skin, because the sparkle-content worried me. It was almost like wearing a Glossimer but made for cheeks–it had a very refined, subtle quality. A little dazzle, a little zing, but it wasn’t chunky or gritty or really glittery on. It did not emphasize pores either. I wore this twice last week, and both times, it lasted for eight hours without fading.
