Chanel Holiday 2020 Collection LES CHAÎNES D’OR DE CHANEL

Chanel Holiday 2020 Makeup Collection Review and swatches

Chanel does a great job creating opulent and ogle-worthy holiday makeup collections and this year is not an exception. I still think the last year's collection was better (the gorgeous eyeshadow quad and the highlighter are still available) but I find Les Chaînes D'Or de Chanel collection is quite beautiful. Let me show you some swatches and makeup looks with them!

Illuminating Blush Powder

Chanel's holiday collections usually include a highlighter but this year they went with an "illuminating blush powder". I would say the formulation is a hybrid of blush and highlighter. The shade is a beautiful rose with gold and bronzy undertones. It looks quite intense from the pan but the pigmentation level is true to its hybrid form. It is very easy to apply without having to worry about overdoing it but the color shows up clearly with a subtle sheen. With this one, I don't feel that I need to use another highlighter or a bronzer.


Ombre Premiére 927 Cuivre Rose

From the pan, Cuivre Rose looks very similar to the Illuminating Blush Powder so I initially hesitated about getting both. Turns out these two are different animals in terms of both formulation and colors (well, duh). They do coordinate beautifully together, though! The eyeshadow has bigger shimmers so the color appears almost duo chromatic. This is a gorgeous one-and-done shade for me.

(Seriously though, swatching these two took some courage.)

Rouge Allure Luminous Intense 137 Pourpre D'Or

I was a bit sour about the fact I had to pay $7 more for the special lipstick case with gold trims, but all is forgiven because Pourpre D'Or is gorgeous. The bullet color may look scary being quite dark but the actual color is a flattering berry red with a subtle shimmer. I love it.


Now, let me show you a few overall looks with this beautiful collection.
