The spring Delices Pastel de Chanel Collection has arrived at Chanel.com and I’m so excited to share a review today. All the items are limited-edition and currently available at Chanel.com, a few pieces like the Baume Essentiel in Dragee and Rouge Coco Baume in Pink Delight are also available at Nordstrom.
In today’s review:
Quick live swatches in action also here on reels:
Fantaisie de Chanel Illuminating Blush in Pastel Fuschia
I think the Fantaisie de Chanel Illuminating Blush in Pastel Fuschia Is the stand out in the collection. On me it pulls more like a highlighter but I think it’s just beautiful. It’s mix of 2 shades using what they call tie-dye technology to swirl a rose pink and pale rose gold for a beautiful fabric-like pattern. The texture is smooth, easy to blend and layer, doesn’t emphasize pores and is just stunning. It’s so pretty I bought a backup.

Baume Essentiel in Lilas and Dragee
There are two new Baume Essentiel Multi-Glow Sticks in Lilas and Dragee, both have already sold out online at Chanel but you can still find Dragee at Nordstrom. These are sheer and glossy with a very slight tint of color. Lilas is a beautiful pale iridescent lilac and Dragee is an iridescent soft pink pearl with a peachish tint.
Lilas is the more unique shade with a lilac tint. Dragee is similar but more pinkish in tone compared to last year’s Ensoleille (more peach).
I’ve been really loving these on the lips as a pretty glossy balm. On my cheeks they have pretty good lasting power as the texture is on the sticky side, but they are really sheer and give more of a dewy glow versus color.
Les 4 Ombres in Delices
There’s one new eyeshadow quad in the Les 4 Ombres format called Delices. The colors include a lilac satin/shimmer, matte warm clay pink, satiny brownish red and pale sparkling yellow. The colors surprised me! I normally don’t gravitate towards these kinds of shades but with some layering they give a really pretty spring look. I start with the clay pink as a base, layer on the brown on the lids and then tap on the lilac and yellow on top.
Pigment is soft medium but buildable and easy to layer. Lasting power on me is very good but you do need to use some kind of base/primer.
Delices Pastel de Chanel Lips
There are four lip products in this launch. The two Rouge Coco Baumes are really pretty. Pink Delight is a sheer neutral peach pink with shimmer. This pulls very sheer alone but if I layer on top of a lip liner like their Beige Naturel or Rose Naturel it shows up better on my lips by adhering to the liner. Sweet Treat is a really pretty brownish plum kind of shade.
The two Rouge Allure Inks have incredible color payoff with one swipe. Both look very similar on my skin tone/lips Gourmandise has a more blueish pink undertone and Tentation is more of a true classic bold red. They stay on the lips an exceptionally long time and feel weightless.
Overall a beautiful collection that surpassed my expectations. I knew I would love the pink highlighter but I didn’t expect to love everything else as much. If you’re a Chanel lover or looking for a fresh pretty color palette for spring that isn’t red or orange, this is one to check out.
Available now at Chanel.com.
Collection gifted from Chanel for review. Both Rouge Coco Baumes purchased by me.
