Chanel Rouge Allure Charmeuse and Fleurie ($34 each/exclusive to Chanel.com) have been in my review queue and it is certainly time to post some information about these lovely shades. You can see other blogger reviews at The Beauty Look Book and Temptalia. Both are beautiful, brightening colors from the Jardin de Camelias collection.
Chanel Fleurie is a medium cool rose with subtle sparkle. The formula is creamy and moisturizing. Fleurie is a color that is near-opaque in one coat, and certainly fully opaque in two. Because of the lovely Chanel formula, there is plenty of rich pigment and so there is no caking effect with the buildup of color.

Here are some quick comparisons with Chanel Jersey Rose, Chanel Rouge Allure Seduirsante and Chanel Confidentielle:
Chanel Charmeuse is a soft nude cream without sparkle. This color is slightly sheer.
Chanel Charmeuse on Liz. You can see that, because of the formula’s sheerness, some of Liz’s natural pink lip color shows through. As I’m sure you’ve already surmised, Chanel Charmeuse a difficult color to offer as an online-only product. It is difficult to predict how this color will look with your individual coloring because it cannot be played with at counters. Personally, I am pleased with the color but caution that you take our swatches with a grain of salt.

Overall, both Chanel Fleurie and Charmeuse are beautiful colors. I seriously love the Chanel Rouge Allure formula, and so both of these are winners for me.
