Shall I first tell you that I love this collection so I might be slightly biased? Chanel Le Blanc makeup collection (also known as Chanel Energies et Puretes) is now available in stores, and I have a feeling it’ll be sold out soon, especially the highlighter. For some of you who might be wondering, this is NOT Asia exclusive. I was told this is available worldwide. While I’m not too crazy about the lip offerings, I really like the eye quad and the highlighter. Sure, I might be a fan of eye shadows, but I don’t usually take a second look at highlighters so that says a lot.
First, let me show you the star of this line, the Plisse Lumiere de Chanel (RM250). This highlighter is a beautiful soft champagne on my skin, and on my cheeks, it gives a beautiful glow that is detectable but subtle at the same time. I use the brush provided to highlight the high point of my cheeks and on the bridge of my nose and I GLOW!
The blush Les Tissages Tweed Cheery Blossom (RM185) is just beautiful to look at. There’s a silver overspray and underneath it is a satin cherry red that is very pigmented. Too bad the accompanying brush is scratchy and coarse. I’d give it an A if they changed the brush to a more usable one.
There are 3 Rouge Coco Shines (RM120) in this line, and a couple of Rouge Allure Glosses (RM120) and the corals are BRIGHT. Rouge Coco Shine in Corail Radieux is very summery, but the Rouge Allure Gloss in Energie is neon coral on my lips! Rouge Coco Shine in Rose Ravissant is more of an every day pinky coral which looks more neutral on my lips. The Le Vernis in Bleu Pastel (RM95) is one of my favourites too. If you followed my Instagram, you would see how I wear it. Last but not least, the eye palette. The one I have is Les 4 Ombres Jardins de Lumiere (RM230), which consists of a silver, tin grey (which looks more green to me), champagne and aubergine.
Now this, is a palette with so many possibilities. What do I mean? Before I show you how I wear them, here are the swatches.
I have created a few looks for you, and I think my favourite shade is the tin grey (top left, the greenish silvery shade). I like to wear it on its own, with pink blush and pink lips for a subtle every day look.
For more drama, I created 2 smokey eye looks for you. One using silver, and another using aubergine. All you need, really, is a dark pencil liner as a base. Here’s how they look like, with the peachy champagne as highlight on the inner corner.
Here I am wearing the coral lipstick and the highlighter, and you’ll be able to see the glow on my cheeks. If it can be captured in the photo under natural light, you can DEFINITELY see it in real life too.
What do you think? Which product caught your eye? Which look do you prefer? As I proof read this, I realize I cut short my sentences and sound a little rushed. That’s mainly because I want to get to the point, or it’ll be a thesis! Happy Hump Day everyone 🙂
