    Just got the Chanel email & I was so excited thinking the new products would be on their site...but no

    This was the blurb for the Baume:

    ES 9 OMBRES Multi-Effects Eyeshadow Palette in Quintessence, available in December. For a similar makeup result, use OMBRE PREMIÈRE Longwear Powder Eyeshadow in Titane. BAUME ESSENTIEL Multi-Use Glow Stick in Transparent, available in December. For a similar makeup result, use ROUGE COCO BAUME Hydrating Conditioning Lip Balm.

    Eh, I'm not so sure the lip balm is going to be quite the same product

    They were telling us how to dupe every item in that collection while saying the real thing will be coming out in December. What kind of marketing strategy is that?

    Yes, that's what it looked like. Not a good strategy at all.

    I've only tried it on, but I like it a lot. The RAV Extremes feel a lot less drying on my lips than the RAVs.

    Sabrina also mentioned them being more comfortable on, iirc. It's a totally different formula. The Extremes also do not include BHT which I avoid. The regular RAVs, including the latest ones, do.

    Now I want that one too! All my goodies are arriving tomorrow.

    It looks much more pink toned on Chanel than on her lips.

    Just got the Rose Petale palette - I absolutely LOVE LOVE it! The concealer is a perfect natural shade, the blush is such a beautiful natural subtle pink flush, the highlight looks like it could be very very similar to the baume! It's very light slightly white with a beautiful subtle glow with just a tad of a gloss...TAD.

    My #5 lipstick hasn't arrived yet. Says it's on the way.

    Does Extreme lean pink?

    Not to me. Epitome does though. Sabrina’s swatches are very accurate.

    Thanks, I liked how it looks on Sabrina. I got Modern yesterday. It leans much more warm peach on me. I wasn't sure I liked it at first, but it grew on me.
    My #5 lipstick was supposed to be here last night but it got put on a wrong trailer & sent several states away. Now I won't get it until Monday. Bummer

    I just ordered 175 Rose Naturel essentielle palette. I didn't know this existed but it looks really pretty. Looks like it is only available on Chanel

    It looks very pretty! So does the rose petale one you mentioned above. Let us know which one you like better... I have the beige Clair one and in person it looks better than online.

    It will be here Monday. If I can get good pics, I'll post both palettes. So you like BC on? I may need to revisit that tomorrow when I go to Nordies.

    Yes, BC is a good color match for me. Definitely try it on in the store if you can.

    Me too, but it seems that it's exactly 116 Extreme which isn't available in Austria/Germany .
    So I comforted myself buying 112 Idéal and 114 Épitome (just waiting for going to France and completing the mini-collection by Extrême...).
    I like Épitome very much, it's a perfect rasperry red, but not too bluish; it works very well with any neutral eye and any rosy blush.

    What is the shimmer like in the Glossimers? Fine glitter that stays behind on the lips as the gloss wears away? I would expect more than that from Chanel, but crazy things are afoot these days.

    Hey, just me again haha... I like the Glossimers without any/much shimmer the best. Any of the ones that have a jelly kind of finish are my faves, like Romance. I always feel like the shimmery ones are too gritty.

    Haha, hi! I wanted to ask you this, but I thought it was better to get out of the Sephora thread. Thank you for the feedback!

    I got the 175 Rose palette today. It's subtle but very very pretty. The concealer is ok, a bit too much on the beige side for me but it still works. 180 Rose Petale is over-all a great match for me. But, the 175 blush is a very pretty more natural rose pink shade. 180 blush is more on the pink side. 175 highlighter shade is BEAUTIFUL! It's a rose gold shade with a tiny amount of shimmer. It is beautiful on the skin. 180 highlighter is more white pearl. I love both.

    So, I noticed that the concealer & blush have these tiny black fibers on top Both palettes have them - the 175 had a bit more. It's probably from the velvet cover. They really shouldn't be there, but they do go away & not a deal breaker for me. I called Chanel & told them but....eh, do they care about anything!??? Not really. CS sadi, yeah, the fibers are there sometimes even when you peel the plastic back from the eyeshadows I told her it's a quality control issue.

    Oh, & it's very dark rainy cloudy here. If it clears up, I'll take some pics of both palettes.
