Chanel Fall-Winter 2019 Beauty Favorites

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 328 Blurry Mauve

 

Nothing gets me in the mood for Fall than getting some new Chanel Beauty goodies. I don’t know why, it must be the changing colors or the transitioning weather along with the gorgeous cool palettes and lipsticks that Chanel tends to release every Autumn, but there’s definitely something about all these factors that make me really excited about what’s supposed to be a very chilly season this year (hopefully not). But before we start with the Chanel beauties I’m loving this Fall and Winter, please have a look at my Chanel Faves last Fall 2018, click HERE.

 

I didn’t really pick up all the stuff that Chanel released this Fall-Winter 2019, and that’s because there were some new releases that I didn’t quite like, so I ended up adding some items that were mostly released earlier this year which I’ve been wishlisting for a while.

 

I skipped on the two new eyeshadows released this season (Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadows) because I wasn’t feeling the shades, or it’s more like I wasn’t sure whether if I could pull off the shades or not, since one compact seems to be too dark and the other seems to be too futuristic on me, lol. I did get a few more shades of my favorite Rouge Allure Liquid Powders, but I skipped on the new Rouge Allure Ink Fusion, which is the new and improved version of the Rouge Allure Ink. I did kind of regret doing that, so I might actually feature that particular Chanel lip product anytime soon in one of my upcoming posts, and I will definitely let you know whether it’s worth having or not, and whether it’s really better than the original Chanel Rouge Allure Ink. So, stay tuned for that. I also added one more shade in my stash of the Chanel Le Crayon Mat and one more of the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme. Anyways, check out my Chanel Beauty haul this Autumn.

 

 

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 328 Blurry Mauve

 

Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 328 Blurry Mauve (62 USD) – Released last May 2019, this is the eyeshadow that’s giving me the feels this Fall, apart from the 268 Candeur Et Expérience which is also a very good spice-toned quad of shades. I picked this one up because I like its wearable color scheme, which is very versatile and can be worn not only for this Fall-Winter, but also throughout any season and on any day. Its mix of natural earthy tones and pale/neutral mauve tones are easy for a transitional weather everyday look, and it reminds me a bit of the 308 Clair-Obscur Chanel eyeshadow compact released last Fall 2018 which I still love nowadays as well. The shades of this quad compact are matte and their overall effect adds warmth and color on the face without looking too gothic or too metallic. See more Chanel eyeshadow swatches HERE.

Rouge Allure Liquid Powder (30 USD) – I picked three shades this Fall and they are all gorgeous.

Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder 978 Bois de Nuit

978 Bois de Nuit – this is a new shade this Fall 2019. On my lips, this looks like a pale light rose pink. Indoor, this shade is quite hard to see on my lips and this is almost on the border of being too light for me, but in broad daylight, this shows as a perfect everyday healthy pink lip glow for a “no-makeup” makeup look.

970 Ruby Red – this is very similar to the shade 960 Avant Gardiste (seen HERE) that was released last year, but perhaps this is more on the purple raspberry pink side, but I honestly almost could not tell the difference between this and the Avant Gardiste shade.

968 Vintage Pink – released early this year, this shade is quite similar to the 978 Bois de Nuit above, but this is a bit warmer and deeper in tone, so, it looks more like a muted vintage rose pink on me, which actually suits my skin very well.

Chanel Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur Mat in 287 Rosy Wood

 

Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme in 128 Rose Nocturne (38 USD) – a FAll 2019 release, this shade is like a vintage rose brown. It looks great when applied lightly on the lips for that perfect Fall lip shade, and it also looks fabulous when applied fully on the lips. The texture is very matte, lightweight, and very long-wearing. See more of the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme Lipsticks HERE.

Le Rouge Crayon de Couleur Mat in 287 Rosy Wood (38 USD) – This isn’t new this Fall, but this is a limited edition shade. I picked this one up because I really love the long-wearing pigment of this particular Chanel lip pencil. It’s not as matte as the Rouge Allure Velvet Extreme Lipstick (above) but this stains the lips for hours and hours, so it’s one of those reliable lip products for me. The Rosy Wood shade looks more woody brown with a rosy hint up close.

 

To sum it up, the Chanel new releases this Fall/Winter are great, especially the lip products, and the overall new releases this year are also amazing and some of them are definite must-haves. Also, the items I picked for this review are really good in terms of quality, pigment, wear, and versatility. They’re enough to get me inspired for the long chilly months.

Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder Review

chanel rouge allure liquid powder review and swatches

 

Hello. As promised, I finally tried one of Chanel’s latest lip releases this Fall – the Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder ($30). This unique, squeezable, and powder-like liquid lipstick has a creamy feel upon application and it sets into a soft blurred matte finish. It has a sponge applicator for easy application (kinda like Too Faced’s Melted line of lip products) and it has a very faint floral scent.

This liquid powder lip color glides effortlessly on the lips and it has a creamy cushiony yet powdery feel. It then sets into a blotted/soft-focus matte that stays on the lips very well without smudging. The pigment is impressive and almost all of the six shades are so pretty. The darkest shade (Avant-Gardiste) lasts six hours on me even after having a meal, and one of the lightest shades (Évocation) though patchy at first is still long-wearing.

This liquid powder is great for creating an ombre lip and even though it is mattifying on the lips, it doesn’t make my lips dry at all and it doesn’t emphasize my lips’ fine lines so much. I do feel like there seems to be a slight difference in the formulation for each color as each seems to apply differently on me. For example, the lighter shades kinda pill a bit on me during application, and are also kinda patchy, though they set well on my lips afterward. The darker shades, however, are impressively staining, not patchy and they don’t pill. The application was seamless and super easy.

Évocation – light coral, appears lighter on my pigmented lips

 

Avant-Gardiste – Deep blue-toned red, appears like a soft blurred vampy shade

I highly recommend this innovative Chanel Rouge Allure Liquid Powder for its pigment, color range, and its soft-matte effect. They feel weightless on the lips and they are long-wearing. If you love the matte texture on your lips but hate the drying feel, then you’ll be happy with this one. For me, this is one of the best liquid lip powders I’ve ever tried so far. Great job Chanel Beauty!
