    I ordered 21
    I can wear beige 10 during winter although a bit too light and not yellow enough. 20 usually is off for me simply because it is so neutral and doesn't have enough yellow so thankfully they finally realized that and made 21 which is more yellow. I wear nc15 during winter and if I tan a bit during summer I can pull of nc20 just for reference

    Ok. Good to know. I'm debating 12 or 20 myself. I'm usually 10 in the cooler months also.

    I haven't heard from my SA about a makeover event and that may be just as well. I'm thinking maybe I should take my time with buying the new eyeshadow singles. Maybe I should just get one at a time. I have Creme Brûlée. Any recs for my next shade? Wondering if I should focus on the limited edition colors first.

    got my cushion today - first impressions : VERY lightweight, and has cooling effect on skin once applied, sheer coverage but buildable maybe to sheer/medium, satin finish definitely not glowy, doesn't enhance any dry spots. very pretty on skin and feels like nothing on

    This sounds great! I light to medium foundations. Just curious, do you happen to have the Les Beiges Healthy Glow Liquid Foundation? I'm wondering if the shades are identical in both formulas.

    I have the cushion too and like it a lot. Perfect for summer, because it's so weightless.

    And for the Germans here: Neon Wave is up at Chanel.com/de. As much as I hate those neon nail polishes, the four new e/s look promising. I've ordered all of them, although I couldn't find any swatches. I have Titane from the regular collection already and it's so damn pretty! On the German site it's labeled as limited, so I got it first. The four new ones are only labeled "exclusive", but they're maybe also limited, so take a look while they're still available. Titane makes me think they're worth it.

    I wonder if her comment that it has SPF 25 is just a typo or if the US formula is different, because on US chanel.com it says it's SPF 15.
    Thanks! I'm not sure her swatch helped me decide. I would like to try it.

    I only tried sample of it in shade 20

    I think cushion runs about the same maybe tiny bit lighter than other chanel foundations

    I'd love that! I saw a video recently where mary Greenwell used the YSL cushion as under eye brightener. It looked nice. I Wear Les Beige in 10 - it would be lovely if I could Wear the cushion from Chanel that way.

    There's a third possibility--the formulae are the same but Chanel only sought approval for SPF 15 in the US.

    BTW, the Chanel UK site lists this as SPF 25.

    I wonder how Chanel's compares to YSL's cushion.

    You're probably right. There's a lot of octinoxate (which I can't use) in it. Do you like the YSL? I think that one has no SPF?

    Here's a review of the Chanel by Bubbly Michelle:
