Chanel Camelias d’Eau Lip Palette is a new, limited edition palette that includes lipsticks in fuchsia, pink, plum, and red. They’re in the Rouge Allure formula, though I found that they were a little bit less emollient, luminous, and hydrating compared to most shades I’ve tried in the regular twist-up tubes, which seemed to result in a bit less line-smoothing than I’ve experienced in the past, too. Nevertheless, they had semi-opaque to opaque coverage, went on evenly, and lasted for a decent length of time with light hydration.
Exaltee is a brighter, medium fuchsia pink with moderate, cool undertones and a satin finish. It didn’t have as much shine as I’d expect from the formula based on the regular, full-sized range. It had a very lightweight, thin consistency that didn’t feel clingy nor did it emphasize my lip lines. It had semi-opaque coverage that didn’t build up beyond that point but lasted well for five hours and felt lightly hydrating.
Fougueuse (138) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color payoff in a single layer, which applied evenly to my lips and didn’t emphasize my lip lines. The consistency felt lightweight, thin without being clingy, and spread easily over my lips. It stayed on nicely for five hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
New Prodigious (178)
New Prodigious (178) is a medium, rosy plum with faint, golden pearl throughout. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied evenly to my lips, but it seemed more prone to emphasizing my lip texture due to the thinner texture. The product didn’t feel particularly dry or different compared to the other pans of product, but it lacked some of the smoothing aspect and luminosity I expect from this formula, generally. It wore well for four and a half hours and felt lightly hydrating while worn.
Palpitante is a medium-dark, pink-red with cooler undertones and a satin sheen. It had good color coverage that adhered evenly to my lips and spread well across them with fingertip or a lip brush (I’d recommend a lip brush, though, when working with this type of product). The consistency was lightweight, thin, and had enough slip to move over my lips but didn’t feel slippery when on. It lasted well for five and a half hours and felt lightly moisturizing over time.
