I’d been wanting ahead to Chanel’s 2019 Vacation make-up assortment for some time. Ever since I noticed teaser pictures of the gathering a couple of months in the past, I’d been enamoured.
Fortunately, I used to be not upset with the precise product! 😀
The important thing merchandise that had me eagerly awaiting the Les Ornaments de Chanel assortment was the eyeshadow quad. There was one thing in regards to the intricate embossing of the sample that jogged my memory of the buttons on Chanel’s iconic tweed jackets.
I used to be generously gifted a choice of merchandise from the Les Ornaments de Chanel assortment so I’ll inform you what I believe is well worth the splurge (and what you would skip over 😉 )
Les Ornaments de Chanel – Restricted Version Vacation 2019 make-up assortment
In contrast to final yr’s Chanel Vacation assortment (with the lions) that appears rather less festive than regular, the Chanel 2019 Vacation Assortment is something however!
It simply fairly actually screams “Prepare for the Holidays!”
There are beneficiant lashings of gold and shine, deep and shiny reds, and plush, daring tones. But, all captured in a chic bundle that isn’t crass or gaudy.
The slight nod to the festive season lies within the little touches – the gold CC emblem on the quilt of the compacts; and the gold edges on the quilt of the Rouge Attract lipsticks.
It’s festive. But, refined in its class. Quintessentially Chanel 🙂
Snap these up!
These 2 objects within the Les Ornaments de Chanel are, I believe, the celebrities of the gathering. It could be a pity to overlook them, not solely as a result of they’re stunning to take a look at, they’re a pleasure to make use of, as all make-up ought to be!
Les 4 Ombres – Lumiere et Opulence 342 – US$65
The Lumiere et Opulence eyeshadow quad is a splendidly put collectively quad. Whereas it’s suitably shiny, as befits the festive season, it isn’t gaudy. The colors are straightforward to put on, which is so essential.
I tire of festive collections that characteristic daring, jewelled eye colors which can be largely impractical for each day put on. The Lumiere et Opulence palette will carry you fairly simply from the workplace to a Christmas celebration with little effort. And extra importantly, will stick with you lengthy after the confetti and euphoria of the brand new yr is gone.
The earthy colors are well-combined, with gentle and darkish shades, and with a refined illuminating shine in your lids. Nothing garish. Nothing metallic or loud. Only a mild class.
The feel of the eyeshadow can be spectacular. When you’ve steeled your coronary heart and deigned to dip in and sully the gorgeous embossing, you can find a wealthy pigmented powder shadow, that applies and blends superbly on lids.
Every color swatches superbly, and is straightforward to select up with a brush.
I can see the Lumiere et Opulence eyeshadow palette quick being a staple on a regular basis eyeshadow palette for me, and for a lot of. It’s versatile, and wearable, and that’s what makes this a winner for me.
If you will get maintain of it, or if you wish to deal with your self this yr finish, or in order for you an eyeshadow palette that you need to use on a regular basis with out having to fret about the way it appears, that is the one you need. That is the one merchandise in any Vacation make-up assortment that I’d say is a “Should Purchase!” – you recognize I don’t say that frivolously! 😉
Rouge Attract Lipstick – Rouge Noble 857, Rouge Spectaculaire 837 – US$45
A Vacation (Christmas) assortment isn’t full and not using a pink lipstick, and Chanel by no means disappoints.
Within the Les Ornaments de Chanel assortment, they’ve launched 6 new restricted version shades of pink, of their iconic Rouge Attract formulation. Rouge Attract additionally occurs to be one in all my favorite Chanel lipstick formulation, so naturally, that’s why you see it right here! 😀
The lipsticks are easy and pigmented, creamy and opaque. Colors are shiny and daring, and ship an impression. But, and importantly for me, they’ve a luminous shine, defining the lip and making it look plumped and luscious. As lips ought to be – not like dried out prunes *coughMatteLipstickcough* 😛
The two shades I’ve listed below are Rouge Noble 857 (a berry) and Rouge Spectaculaire 837 (a shiny cherry pink). You will notice the swatches under, and they’re each beautiful.
Granted, in the event you already personal a number of decisions of pink lipsticks, then you would fairly simply cross on these. You may not need to cross on the gorgeous black and gold packaging, however you would simply think about skipping these over.
When you’re sensible 😉
Take into consideration these a little bit extra
The opposite objects within the Les Ornaments de Chanel assortment are, for me, good to have, however not essentially standouts. One in all them was fairly a shock, as a result of I anticipated extra of it.
Eclat Magnetic de Chanel – Metallic Peach Illuminating Powder – US$70
Chanel releases an illuminating powder every year with their Vacation assortment, and this yr is not any totally different. For me, except you’re a collector of those restricted version items, one is often fairly sufficient.
This yr, the design is gorgeous. It’s a bigger illustration of the embossing that we see on the Lumiere et Opulence eyeshadow quad, paying homage to a classic Chanel button.
The powder is a peach tone with a metallic shine. Excellent for highlighting the face and decolletage for events and occasions.
But, I felt that the standard was much less spectacular than regular. The shine was a contact extra metallic than I want, and the powder didn’t really feel as high-quality to the contact.
Granted, once you use it with a brush, it disperses the powder higher, giving a much less harsh look.
However it’s nonetheless a little bit of a problem. Except you’re a collector of fairly make-up, or love utilizing highlighting powders, I believe you’ll be able to safely cross on this one, with out an excessive amount of regrets.
Ombre Premiere – Pourpre Brun US$36
Chanel’s Ombre Premiere single eyeshadows have a fantastic creamy high quality and intense pigment that’s stunning. However I discovered one thing missing within the Pourpre Brun Ombre Premiere.
I discovered the feel of the Pourpre Brun eyeshadow a little bit more durable than regular. It is usually a matte burgundy shade that I personally discover difficult to put on on my colouring.
It may be this that has prejudiced me a little bit in opposition to this product, I admit. Nevertheless, in the event you put on such colors properly, then it may be one you would be excited about.
Le Vernis – Deepness and Richness – US$28
I need to admit my eye was caught by Deepness, a deep, darkish inexperienced that appears nearly black. Richness is a pink that’s shiny, but with a depth so it doesn’t look garish or low cost.
However for somebody who barely wears nail polish, this was a simple cross for me. I can think about nevertheless, that those that get pleasure from carrying nail polish would admire one or the opposite of those stunning festive colors.
Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner – Khaki Intense US$33
I’m a fan of the Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliners, so that you’d suppose I’d put this up as a should purchase.
However I’m not, for the easy cause that this isn’t so distinctive as to be a should purchase. When you ask me nevertheless, if the Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliners are value shopping for, I’d say sure. Chanel does colored eyeliners properly, and these are straightforward to make use of, and pretty smudgeproof.
Khaki Intense is a deep, blackened khaki and makes for a pleasant various to a harsh black. There’s a very slight pearlescent shimmer, nevertheless it isn’t glittery when worn.
I prefer it, but when I needed to decide one merchandise from the gathering, this wouldn’t be it, as a result of the eyeshadow is way extra excellent when it comes to color, wearability and worth for cash 🙂
Listed below are the swatches of all of the objects I’ve featured above.
The eyeshadows have been swatched with only one cross, which is testomony to their high quality and pigment. I barely even touched the floor of the shadow, so in the event you prefer it extra intense, you’ll be able to pack on extra color.
I personally like that this can be a festive, but elegant and wearable make-up assortment. None of them scream “I’m only for the Holidays!” They’re all wearable always of the yr in various levels.
And that, for me, is what makes for a profitable make-up assortment. One which works at any time, however works particularly when, for the season it’s meant for 🙂
Did you decide up something from the Les Ornaments de Chanel assortment?
I do understand that these have been out for a short while, and as is wont to occur, may be passed by now. However it additionally implies that most of you’ll have seen/tried/purchased one thing from the gathering already – so which did you decide? 😀
