Chanel Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick – Sculpting
Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick is a new addition in Chanel makeup line. It can be described as a lightweight translucent balm which instantly add fresh and dewy finish to complexion without being oily or tacky.
Description on Chanel website
A moisturizing, glow-enhancing balm for face, eyes and lips. The smooth, silky texture glides onto skin for a natural-looking glow.
Formula is lightweight, feels silky soft and wet to touch but not at all tacky, adds a non-oily natural sheen to skin. It is a multi-use glow stick which I apply wherever I want a glow on my face OR on top of my eyes to create a glossy look, It can also be used on lips.
It comes in two shades, Transparent and Sculpting. I have it in Sculpting which is a subtle pink champagne provides a beautiful pearly sheen.
Below is a video clip swatching on hand Chanel Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick in Sculpting to show the glow in natural day light.
I have a normal to combination skin in summer and dry in winters. I find this product perfect to add a touch of dewiness without being overdo of highlighter. For those who have oily skin I can anticipate this would be hard to incorporate and suggest to test it in stores before purchase.
In pictures below I applied Chanel Baume Essentiel Multi-Use Glow Stick Sculpting on my cheeks, bridge of nose, forehead, cupid’s bow and eyelids. This balm instantly gives life and light to the face. If you like a kind of beautiful wet look this product is for you.
In general I am too lazy to touch up but it is so easy to use that I just slip it in my purse and use any time I want.

Some Close ups of this beautiful palette for better idea of shades
In picture below I used shade 7 as a base and on lower brows, 3 on eyelids, shade 8 on crease and lower lash line, toped with shade 5, on inner and outer corner I applied shade 1.
Shadows stays put for good 6 to 7 hours and as I always mention that I remove my makeup maximum after 7 hours.
It comes in a classic black Chanel compact with a mirror in it and two small applicator brushes with sponge tip and angled soft hair brush. This palette is so convenient to take for travels.
Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour – Bleached Mauve
Two new shades of Le Vernis Longwear Nail Colour are also included in Chanel Spring 2019 collection, 646-Bleached Mauve and 648-Techno Bloom. Shade I picked 646 – Bleached Mauve is a beautiful nude with a hint of mauve beige.
Formula and consistency for this color is sheer that I need two or more coats to obtain an opaque finish and real color to be appeared.
Finish is glossy and it does not thicken when I apply second or third coat. It is long lasting and stays for days without any chipping while application is easy and streaks free.
It comes in a classic Le Vernis bottle, you pull up the cap and twist off the top. Applicator brush is thin and round at the edge.
