Swatches & Squealing: My Review Of Chanel Le Rouge N°1 Fall 2016 Makeup Collection

Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Quad in 268 Candeur Et Expérience, Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in 128 Rouge Brûlé, and Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in 58 Rouge Vie are my personal picks from the indescribably gorgeous Chanel Le Rouge N°1 Fall 2016 Makeup Collection


Chanel Le Rouge N°1 Fall 2016 Collection Review SwatchesI waited for my Chanel order of the Le Rouge N°1 Fall 2016 Makeup Collection like a first-grader waits for Santa…

Remember when you were a kid and used to go to sleep really early on Christmas Eve so that the moment of opening your presents on Christmas morning would come sooner?

Well, I confess that when I placed my order on Chanel‘s Italian website and read that delivery would take 3-6 business days, I immediately started to check my mental diary for the following days and was glad to realize that they’d be pretty jam-packed.

You know, so that the delivery would come sooner! 😉

When the day finally came and I went downstairs to meet the delivery man at the door, my legs must have been a blurry circle like The Road Runner’s.

And, I swear, opening the parcel was a “heavenly choir and glorious sunlight” type of moment.

Chanel Makeup BoxSee how the Chanel box is lit by heavenly light? 😉 (And, incidentally, I may live in the tiniest apartment ever, but this box is STAYING! Mr. Page has already been warned.)


Chanel Makeup Box

Chanel Le Rouge Fall 2016 Makeup Collection Review SwatchesCan you hear the heavenly choir?? *Ahh-Ahh-Ahhhhh*


The order had been packaged so immaculately that I cried a little when I took everything out of the box, LOL. And I kept crying when I first inspected the actual products. I mean, you know the tears of awe you get when you see something breathtakingly beautiful, like the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls? Well, that was my type of tears when I saw the Chanel Le Rouge products.

Ready for a real eye-feast? (You may cry, if you want. I promise I won’t tell anyone. 😉 )

Look at this quad.

Just look at it!

Isn’t it a stunner?

The Chanel Les 4 Ombres in 268 Candeur Et Expérience has everything I’ve always wanted in an eyeshadow quad.

Matte? Check.

Warm? Check.

Neutral? Check.

With a twist? Check.

Easy to blend? Check.

Long-lasting? Check.

If you’re debating whether you should drop 61 pretty dollars on this little palette, I say GO FOR IT (as long as it’s in your budget, obviously). You won’t be disappointed!

The Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in 128 Rouge Brûlé may very well be my favorite cream eyeshadow of all times.

I love its bouncy consistency, its intense coppery hue, and its almost metallic finish (no chunks of glitter in sight!).

Oh, and I also love how long it lasts (on top of the NARS Pro-Prime Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base) and how easy it is to diffuse its edges with a blending brush.

Basically, I just love everything about it!

Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in 58 Rouge Vie Illusion D'ombre Eyeshadow in 128 Rouge Brȗlé Swatches ReviewI really like how the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in 58 Rouge Vie and the Illusion D’Ombre Eyeshadow in 128 Rouge Brûlé go together


The formula of the Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick in 58 Rouge Vie is simply impeccable: luxurious, comfortable, and long-lasting.

I have a hard time describing the shade, though. I even asked Mr. Page what shade he thought it was (yeah, I was that desperate!) and his unexpected reply was: “It’s red.”

Men

To me, it looks like a brick red with a hint of pink. I find it a very sophisticated, grown-up type of red. I have nothing quite like it in my stash and I’m very much in love.

Sooo, listen to me, the Chanel Le Rouge N°1 Fall 2016 Makeup Collection is honestly the most beautiful collection I’ve ever seen, and if I win the lottery in the next few weeks (mental note: remember to play the lottery), I’ll buy every single piece from it.

Ahh, if only Santa came sooner this year…! 😉

Have you tried anything from the Chanel Le Rouge Fall Collection? If not, would you like to? And did you too go to sleep early on Christmas Eve so that Christmas morning would come sooner?

    This collection is absolutely gorgeous! Because I’ve already bought so much makeup this month, I’m trying my best to resist purchasing it, but it is really hard! Lovely makeup looks, especially the first one and I can definitely see a hint of pink in the 58 Rouge Vie lipstick as well, so unique!!

    This is the first Chanel quad that seriously tempted me to purchase! I love that it has 4 matte eyeshadows and as you said, the red put a twist to an otherwise neutral quad. I’m trying not to spend because I have spent so much and my eldest son, my dad and my husband’s birthday are all in September! sob!

    I have to tell you, I’ve seen so many Chanel reviews and while they were all nicely done I was rarely left wanting the products. You have me convinced that I need all of this! Seriously, it’s all so beautiful! And it just screams Fall! Everything just made it to my wishlist. And I have a birthday coming up so at least the quad will be mine lol!

    You look gorgeous by the way! 🙂

    I should accidentally link of this post to my husband, maybe he gets the hint 🙂 I have never been into red/brick toned eyeshadows, however, this palette seems to be changing my mind about it. You “red;)” lipstick is perfect for Autumn as well. I will pop up to Chanel counter to check them out, who knows what happens next 🙂

    This collection looks so perfect for you. Really love the red lipstick.
    Woke up this morning to news of a devastating earthquake in Amatrice. I don’t recall exactly where you are located, but I am thinking of you, hoping you are OK. Praying for your fellow countrymen.
    I miss your posts on M&BB, so I thought I’d come see what you’re posting here.

      Hi Tatiana, it’s so nice to “see” you here! 🙂
      I’m in Bologna, which is over 200 miles to the north of Amatrice, but thank you so much for your kind words. We had a big quake up here four years ago, and I remember how scary it all was.
      I hope everything is good in your neck of the woods.

    Haha, I’m glad you’re so in love with what you got! I know this collection is really popular, and I almost bought some pieces just to review on the blog, but… first I’m not much of a Chanel girl, and, most important, I just can’t wear reds on my eyes. I look like I just escaped from a hospital with a dangerous contagious disease. So no Chanel Fall eyeshadows for me, no Anastasia Modern Renaissance, etc. I thought about getting this Rouge Vie lipstick, but I purchase other stuff instead.

    As for the collection, I have wanted to see the quad in action, ever since I filmed the Inspired by. And it is stunning. But after seeing your pictures, I am tempted by the cream eyeshadow even more. I guess I should start playing the lottery…

    I never bought anything directly from Chanel’s website, but that package is something hard to resist, lol. I tried Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks before, and they are still among my favourites! The formula is definitely amazing; not sure if I ever had something better in terms of longevity and texture. I am really curious about that eyeshadow quad now:) Thanks so much for sharing and have a great weekend!

    Oh I completely know what it’s like to get so excited about a make-up release! The packaging looks so beautiful and I’d want to keep all of it as well. The shades in that eyeshadow quad are STUNNING! So perfect for the upcoming Autumn/Winter seasons. The brownish/red shade is really unique, it reminds me of Mars a little in my Manny MUA x Makeup Geek palette. Also all of these tones look gorgeous on you too, they work so well with your complexion.:)

    CHANEL you’ve done it again with your beautiful creations! Seriously, the quad, the single and the lipstick are all just so beautiful and those warm colours are GORGEOUS!

    What a beautiful collection. I think I actually prefer the single shadow colour actually as it’s more metallic but in all honesty it all looks so beautiful.

    You look amazing and these warm tones suit you nicely. Really great reading this after checking out the review of the matte lipstick.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Gorgeous collection ending up getting lots of it. Of course the quad, the IDO in rouge brûlé, the blush, lipstick rouge Charnel, both the eyeliners and altering seeing this one and lots of other bloggers we very enthusiast about it the lipstick in rouge Vie and the lip pencil in seduction which is a perfect match for this lipstick. I totally adore this collection especially after the last two collection which I hardly bought anything from. Thanks for posting I love to read what other Chanel fans think!

    Ciao Carolina! Ho iniziato da poco da seguirti, e debbo dire che il tuo blog mi piace moltissimo! Innanzitutto complimenti per la grafica, davvero molto raffinata, e per il gioco di parole: “Carolina page-Carol in a page”, che trovo molto grazioso.
    I tuoi post sono scritti in uno stile impeccabile e sono briosi e godibili, oltre che ben argomentati.
    E, soprattutto, mi piacciono le foto del tuo bel faccino sorridente e comunicativo.
    Questo tuo post su Chanel mi è piaciuto molto, e credo che quel benedetto Rouge Vie sarà mio: credo che dovrebbe starmi bene, sono ramata con pelle chiarissima sottotono neutro. Tu che ne pensi?
    Per la skin care io prediligo l’ecobio, e così pure per i trucchi della base (fondotinta, cipria, correttore), mentre per fard (non mi viene di chiamarlo blush 😛 ), rossetti ed il maquillage occhi non faccio differenze, uso sia cosmetici ecobio che tradizionali.
    Ancora complimenti ed a presto!

      Guarda, secondo me Rouge Vie è uno di quei colori che stanno bene un po’ a tutte. Se lo prendi, spero proprio che ti piaccia tanto quanto a me! 🙂
      Buona serata e a presto!
