Chanel Holiday 2013 Nuit Infinie de Chanel Review, Photos, Swatches, Tutorial

The Chanel Holiday 2013 Nuit Infinie collection is a wearable set of lovely colors with spot-on textures. The lipsticks are far more approachable than they appear to be in the tubes, and the nail polish is ultra smooth and glossy even without a topcoat. The revamped Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick formula is so comfortable and more forgiving than ever, but I prefer the pink-red La Précieuse. La Désirée, however, has an edgy cranberry wine lean that is more on target with the current 'burgundy' lip trend. Rouge Rubis is by far the brightest and most neutral red nail polish Chanel has released in years.
I highly recommend the richly pigmented Accent blush since it is a very flattering nude with a hint of warmth, one of the best Chanel has ever done. Now, Charming may be the best eyeshadow palette since Kaska Beige, but I prefer the ease of the Initiation Illusion D'Ombre. The champagne and silver glitter in Initiation might look too glitzy in the swatch, but it is a low maintenance color that is subtle enough for day time use. The Charming eyeshadow palette is more appropriate for a conservative office setting and has a wearable mix of satin, matte, and shimmer textures. Charming is much more pigmented than the similarly packaged Pearl River.

NOTE: The new Le Blanc Light Revealing Primer in Rosée (non-comedogenic) truly does provide a brightening effect, but it must be worn with foundation — ideally liquid. Since it casts a pale pink tint that is very noticeable on my bare face, it may not be the most versatile primer but the lightweight formula is perfection.
