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.

The makeup artist on my first ever modelling job used this on me when I was just 13. I thought it was the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen and the height of sophistication. Happy memories!
oh wow.. what a wonderful memory!
I had this and wondered if you might own it! I did use mine and loved it. It really made makeup feel like playing, and ultra special at the same time.
It was really unlike anything we’d seen – I mean, MAC did tubes I think but never thought to put it in an artistic setting.
I still use the little tin in my craft room! Loving this series Jane, I had so many of your picks, I think nearly all the chanel ones lol! Keep up the good work, stay safe xx
Thank you Mandy!
Ah, still kicking myself for getting rid of this set! It was in perfect shape but everyone told me it was silly to collect makeup and I should get rid of it if I wasn’t using it (and we know how that ended, LOL). Still searching for one in mint condition!
They ARE around – I saw several!
Into this so much. I love when make up is in a more customisable format, this is so beautiful
I have one completely unused. So beautiful that I couldn’t bear to spoil it haha. Sitting in a draw ☹
I know – on that level, they’re more collector’s pieces really rather than usable products :-))
