Hello everyone, I am back with a shopping post – showcasing mainly two items I purchased from Le Blanc Delices du Chanel Makeup Collection this year. Each year, Chanel rolls out a set of makeup designed specifically for their Le Blanc range. And every year the items are love.
I believe this is an Asian exclusive collection for now and it’s available at all Chanel stores island-wide (Singapore).
In this post, you will find product shots, some swatches and first impressions of the items. I haven’t had time to explore them on my face yet and I may not have time to do so soon because Chinese New Year is round the corner and I will be away most of this month.
Chanel Joues Contraste in 78 Délice – retails at S$67 for 4g of product, made in France.
Délice is a shimmering, frosty white with multi-coloured micro shimmers and it is extremely pigmented. My swatch below doesn’t do justice to the product at all – you would have to see it in action to appreciate its beauty. The product shot above managed to briefly capture the shimmers.
This piece has delicately soft and refined shimmers, very silky to touch and light as air. There were bits of fly aways while I was swatching it.
Délice actually reminds me of the Le Blanc Pearl Light Brightening Loose Powder SPF10 PA+ in 10 Cristalline which I have yet to review. I shall compare them side by side to give you a better idea.
The other item I picked up is the Chanel Ombres Fleuries in Délicatesse – retails at S$96 for 4g of product, made in Italy.
As you can see, each shade has floral motifs embossed onto them – isn’t it pretty? It was pretty much “love at first swatch” – the colours are superbly pigmented, think Topkapi and the more recent Harmonie Du Soir. Texture is similar to those two mentioned, silky and creamy.
Délicatesse houses four shades of varies intensity and finish.
The first shade, a fresh minty green reminds me of Riviére but a tad less complex.
I am very excited about this little collection. I think the pieces are very beautiful and wearable. And I am very impressed with the quality of Délicatesse. Swatches you see above are swatched with light/medium intensity as I am trying my best to preserve the floral motifs.
Do you think you will pick up anything from this collection? Hope this post gives you a heads up and hope you find it helpful.
Thank you for looking.
