Chanel Spring Summer Makeup Collection 2023 Review and Swatches

Chanel just released the Spring Summer Makeup Collection for 2023 and I picked up one of the blush and eye palettes and the nail polishes and give my thoughts on them below.

Les 4 Rouges Yeux et Joues Blush and Eye Palette in Tendresse

The Eye and Cheek Palette in Tendresse has four shades that can be worn on the face or the eyes as eyeshadow. I purchased this to use it as blush so have not tried them on my eyes.

Eye and Cheek Palette in Tendresse

This palette includes a brick red, a shimmery peachy pink, a peach, and a light bronze shade. All of the shades are matte except the shimmer shade.

The colors are pigmented and buildable on my skin tone and all work nicely as blush shades. I can apply the darkest shade with a light hand and find it more wearable then I initially thought. The shimmer shade makes a nice blush topper applied lightly and would be pretty as an eyeshadow as well. The peach shade is a nice wearable peach for the summer and the bronze shade is a nice neutral blush that is pretty on its own or mixed with the shimmer shade. I can also wear it as a light bronzer but prefer it as a neutral blush.

The blushes are good quality and all were easy to apply and blend. They wear all day on me without fading.

Swatches of Tendresse

I doubt I will wear these as eyeshadows because they are a little too warm for my eye shadow preferences.

Le Vernis Nail Polishes

I love Chanel Nail Polish and try to pick up all of the new shades when they come out. I wear my Chanel Polishes the most and look forward to all the new releases.

967 Watermelon is a sheer bright orange coral shade. I love sheer nail polishes and am so happy this is sheer similar to the jelly polishes in years past, but in a more creamy consistency.

969 Rouge Cuir is a rosy terracotta burgundy shade. To me, this seems more like a fall color than one for spring or summer, but it is very pretty. This color is very opaque in the usual two coats.

Chanel nail polishes last a full week on my nails. I do my own manicures at home every week and can sometimes go longer in between but I stick to my weekly routine. They don’t chip and they stay looking shiny all week. I definitely recommend them.

Other Items in the Collection

The collection also included another palette in Caractere with darker shades, a Baume Essentiel stick, a couple matte lipsticks, an eye liner, and a mascara, but I passed on those items.

I am thinking about picking up the Baume Essentiel in Rouge Frais and will add it to this post later if I do.

Final Thoughts

I really love all three pieces I purchased from this collection. I will wear these nail colors and blushes a lot and am happy to have them in my collection. I feel like this collection overall leaned pretty red and warm in tone this time but the blush palette I chose is wearable and great shades for summer. The Nail Polish shades are classy and versatile and I am happy to see a sheer shade this time, since sheer colors are my favorites.
