I think this was the first piece of Chanel make up that I bought myself, believe it or not, at Ceaser’s Palace in Las Vegas! It’s very shiny there but I definitely remember gulping at the price of it (in the UK it was £26 approx) and mentally juggling how I could possibly justify it. Obviously, I came to some rationale that worked!
The tin contains one clear gloss and five colours that you can mix and match in the little mixing pot to be used on eyes, lips or cheeks. As you can see by its pristine appearance, I’ve never done it. I don’t think I’ve even squeezed one of the tubes although they’re not hygiene sealed with the little metal tab that they would be now.
There are two brushes – one has a slightly different edge which I imagine must make it the mixing brush while the rounder tip is the applicator brush. Or perhaps not! Maybe it’s the other way around. The shades are: Gloss Cristalle, Rose, Corail, Carmin, Magenta and Bronze.
Surprisingly, to me anyway, you can pick these up (in varying conditions) on resale sites for as little at £15. There’s a beautiful Inside Chanel YouTube HERE of someone sketching and colouring with gouache paints to create a wonderful image of a Camelia 5 Allures necklace.
