Fact to inform, I used to be going to skip over the Chanel le Blanc 2019 Pierres de Lumiere make-up assortment. This was extra so after I used to be instructed, simply after I’d obtained the merchandise, that a few of them are already out of inventory on the boutique!
It makes me really feel a little bit redundant, reality to inform.
Additionally, I felt that the colors weren’t fairly me. le Blanc collections are typically heavy on mild colors and pastels and reality to inform, can come throughout as insipid.
However there was one merchandise within the assortment that had caught my eye the day I noticed it within the Chanel magnificence boutique. It was the Tissages de Chanel blush in Tweed Beige. I believed it regarded fairly distinctive.
After which, I began enjoying round with the colors, and I realised that they have been really wearable, and among the key objects are everlasting objects. So I current to you the Chanel le Blanc Pierres de Lumiere make-up assortment 🙂
Chanel les 4 Ombres Lueurs Ambrees 314 – RM244 | US$61
In line with my notes, the Chanel les 4 Ombres eyeshadow palette in Lueurs Ambrees 314 is a restricted version eye palette.
At first sight, this seems to be your regular warm-toned impartial eyeshadow palette. It’s fairly peachy, and comprises 3 shimmer shades and one matte.
I discover the pale beige matte shade on the backside proper nook a little bit odd. When used as a base, I discover that the opposite textures don’t play nicely with it. It does apply a little bit powdery, although it does present up, a lot to my shock. I hardly ever have luck with matte shades like this.
I wouldn’t say that I really like this palette. I favor cooler toned impartial shades for the eyes, and this one does are typically a bit heat. Nonetheless, I could make it work for me, as you possibly can see under, in a really on a regular basis form of easy eye look. The brown isn’t very deep, so that you received’t be capable to pull deep smokey eye appears to be like from this palette. However should you simply desire a easy wash of color on the lid, this does match the invoice.
That mentioned, so do many many different extra reasonably priced eye palettes out there. To be sincere, this one isn’t probably the most distinctive merchandise to personal from Chanel.
Chanel le Rouge Crayon – Bois Rose and Corail Intense – RM138 | US$38
You possibly can learn my ideas on the Chanel le Rouge Crayon lipsticks in my earlier publish. My view on them stays the identical.
They’re pretty and emollient, light-weight on the lips, pigmented and straightforward to put on. The slim packaging is moveable, and it’s a very enjoyable lipstick to make use of as most crayon type lipsticks are.
The two colors I’ve are:
- Bois Rose – A impartial rose that appears a brown-beige in tube, however on my lips takes on a rosy hue that makes it simple to put on as a “impartial” lip color. Most impartial lip colors wash me out. This one doesn’t.
- Corail Intense – Because the title implies, this one’s a brilliant coral that brightens the complexion and brings to thoughts scorching scorching summer time. Good for our heatwave 😛
These 2 new shades are restricted version colors, but when I’m to be sincere, they aren’t so particular that it’s important to run out and purchase them RIGHT.A.WAY! However should you like the feel of the le Rouge Crayon, and you want the colors, you possibly can actually do worse 🙂
Chanel Rouge Attract Ink – Cornaline – RM138 | US$38
I don’t put on matte lip colors, except they’re made by Chanel. And I don’t put on matte liquid lipstick both, aside from the Chanel Rouge Attract Ink.
I swear that they’re one of the best matte liquid lipsticks I’ve ever worn, for the straightforward motive, they’re flattering and don’t settle into strains nor make my lips seem like wrinkled prunes.
You possibly can learn my full full assessment on the Rouge Attract Ink right here, however suffice to say that I really like how light-weight they’re, and that they don’t settle nor are they drying. The colors are pigmented they usually apply simply and evenly.
They don’t dry down fully in contrast to many liquid lipsticks, they usually additionally aren’t absolutely flat matte. However that’s why I like them. I like a little bit of shine on my lips, and that is flattering. That’s most necessary.
The restricted version color is Cornaline, which is a really brilliant, intense coral. Very brightening to the complexion in case you are the kind to put on daring, brilliant colors.
Chanel Ombre Premiere Cream Satin – Pierre de Rose 846 – RM137 | US$36
That’s the pink shimmer tub that you simply see within the image above, and if I’m to be sincere, not my favorite color to put on. I don’t normally put on child pinks like this, particularly in the event that they’re shimmery, as a result of it makes my lids look puffy and it isn’t flattering.
This one’s form of the identical. It simply goes on a pale icy pink and doesn’t work for me. Maybe I might put on it as a base and apply one other color over, however that will defeat the aim received’t it? I’m not a fan, however should you like shades like this, I suppose it’s value looking.
Chanel White Opal Illuminating Powder – RM206 | US$58
All this brings us to the extra fascinating releases within the Pierre de Lumiere assortment.
In line with my notes, White Opal will not be restricted version. Does it imply it’s everlasting? Goodness is aware of!
Within the pan, and within the image, it appears to be like like a little bit of a boring soiled white powder. I swear, if it wasn’t by Chanel, I believe most individuals would dismiss it altogether!
However as you tilt it to catch the sunshine, you will note a little bit of a touch of pink duochrome shade. If you swatch it in your pores and skin, it reveals up as an opalline pink.
What this powder is, is a highlighting powder. I do discover that it may be a little bit intense, so I like to recommend utilizing a fluffy highlighting brush (like Chanel’s retractable highlighter brush) or a fan brush.
Gently dab on the powder to select up product, and frivolously brush it the place you need the sunshine to hit – tops of your cheekbones, your nostril bridge and so forth. I don’t use highlighter very a lot, and after I do, I do are likely to go for the champagne colored powders.
That mentioned nonetheless, I do suppose that the White Opal powder is fairly on pores and skin. When the sunshine hits, the pink duochrome powder displays itself fairly prettily, and makes a distinction from the blinding highlight champage or gold shades that we’re used to.
I do discover additionally that it’s fairly illuminating in individual. It isn’t shiny per se. It isn’t blingy, the best way most golden powders are. However you’ll undoubtedly discover the shine in your cheekbones, as you flip your head. It’s a little like a powder model of the Illuminating Base, just a bit extra intense.
Should you like highlighting powders or use highlighters, then that is undoubtedly one it is best to look into. It’s fairly distinctive.
Chanel Les Tissages de Chanel – Tweed Beige 140 – RM194 | US$45
Being a blush fiend, I’ve to say that the important thing merchandise on this Pierre de Lumiere assortment that I used to be most drawn to was the Tweed Beige blush.
I personal the Chanel Tweed blushes from waaaay again once they have been first launched. They have been good, however I at all times most well-liked the Joues Contraste blushes within the spherical pans. These have been fairly to have a look at, however had an inclination to have chunky glitter, and to harden fairly prematurely.
I finished being attentive to them for a few years because of this.
Nonetheless, I consider that the system has been tweaked, as a result of the present releases of the Les Tissages de Chanel blushes are very good. They don’t have the chunky glitter bits anymore even when they’re shimmery, and the powders really feel delicate and are pigmented.
Tweed Beige caught my eye as a result of it isn’t conventionally pink or coral or berry. It’s virtually a flat beige within the pan, with a touch of pink, and shot by means of with gold.
It swatches as a rosy-beige shade. A muted rose with beige/brown tones and has golden shimmer by means of it. On pores and skin, it has a golden brown color that’s fairly distinctive.
Nonetheless, I personally discover the color a little bit difficult to put on, as a result of the shade accents pigmentation spots or darkish spots I’ve on my cheeks. For some motive, it simply makes it look extra outstanding!
I struggled with it for a number of days, till I labored out that what I wanted was only a very very mild hand. Once I simply frivolously dab on the color, I’d get a impartial barely-there blush, with some golden shimmer. That appears flattering. Once I’m in a rush, it doesn’t. This subsequently will not be a blush for after I’m brief for time, as I can get it fairly fallacious.
My notes additionally don’t present Tweed Beige to be restricted version, and I do suppose that it’s a blush color that’s fairly distinctive and price testing. When you have hotter or a deeper skintone I believe it could look fairly on you.
When you have a light-weight skintone, fret not. Simply use a light-weight hand. It provides you that “Is she sporting blush?” look that I believe may be very fashionable and really fairly in an understated manner.
Listed here are the swatches of the merchandise I’ve proven you right here. As you possibly can see, the powder colors are all fairly muted and impartial. The Lueurs Ambrees eye palette is fairly however not particular.
Tweed Beige then again, is an fascinating shade for a blush, being without delay impartial however providing up a touch of color and golden shine. White Opal Iluminating Powder swatches pink, which makes for an fascinating spotlight.
What would I choose from the Pierre de Lumiere make-up assortment?
Personally, I’d check out both the Tweed Beige blush or the White Opal Illuminating Powder. Each of those are fairly distinctive and have a good looking texture. They don’t settle into pores on pores and skin, and don’t make pores look enlarged (except you pile it on).
I’d additionally take into account Bois Rose le Rouge Crayon, as a result of it’s a flattering impartial rose shade and from expertise, impartial shades that flatter will not be simple to search out. This one’s extra rosy than the Rouge Attract Velvet in Nuance 71 that I confirmed you earlier than. That one can be contact and go, however Bois Rose is rather more flattering.
I’d additionally take a look at Cornaline from the Rouge Attract Ink assortment, as a result of I just like the system and I believe the color is fairly, though it is rather brilliant. For the eyes although, I’d save my pennies for the upcoming Les Beiges Ombres 9 Eyeshadow palette. That one appears to be like to be a beaut! 😀
For an concept of how I’d put on the merchandise from this assortment, listed below are a few appears to be like displaying the totally different lip colors. The remainder of the make-up stays the identical.
The make-up used: Chanel Sublimage le Teint basis, Nars Delicate Matte concealer, Chanel Boy forehead pencil, Les 4 Ombres Lueurs Ambrees eyeshadow, Les Tissages Blush in Tweed Beige
I used Tweed Beige blush with fairly a light-weight hand for this. A base with greater protection additionally helps make it look a bit extra flattering, when you have pigmentation spots in your cheeks like I do, because the blush can intensify the spots.
Chances are you’ll discover that Cornaline lipstick appears to be like a bit totally different at totally different angles. It’s extra orange-coral and fairly brilliant. However not so brilliant as to make tooth look yellow, which is necessary.
The identical make-up as above, from totally different angles, aside from the change in lip colors. There’s a trace of White Opal illuminating powder on my cheek however actually, it’s a) an excessive amount of shine as a result of Tweed Beige already provides a golden shine and b) not so discernible should you don’t pile it on.
The two Le Rouge Crayon colors are fairly, and I like Bois Rose as a result of it’s, for me, a wearable impartial. Just a little plain in a impartial face as I did right here, however good for an understated look. Corail Intense perks up the complexion a little bit extra (and that’s why I get pleasure from sporting a brilliant lip!)
Did you take a look at something from the Chanel le Blanc Pierres de Lumiere assortment? Which might you choose?
