It’s no secret that I like to splurge on makeup/beauty products, which means I’ve collected quite a few high end beauty products from different brands (and continue to collect more & more). Recently, I’ve been more interested in Chanel and since I just hauled a few more things, I thought I would talk about Chanel beauty products worth the splurge along with ones that aren’t because there are better products on the market for the price!

Chanel beauty products worth the splurge and Chanel beauty products not worth the splurge including Coco Mademoiselle perfume, Rouge CoCo lipstick, Rouge Allure Gloss, Soleil Tan De Chanel bronzer, Soleil Tan de Chanel Fluid, Chanel le blanc de chanel base

5 Chanel beauty products worth the splurge and 2 that totally aren’t

Soleil Tan de Chanel— $50

This cream bronzer has been hyped up for the longest time, and was the first Chanel makeup product I ever purchased. I have to say that it is worth the splurge because it really warms up the skin and blends easily. Plus, you get so much product that it’ll last you ages. Though it’s beautiful, there are a couple downsides (womp womp). 1. There’s only one shade so if you’re darker than an NC42 then it won’t really show up on your skin, and 2. It is pretty warm so if you’re very fair it could be too orangey.

Soleil Tan de Chanel Fluid— $48

I don’t hear much hype about this fluid version, which is essentially a highlighter/bronzer depending on your skin tone. I love this because it adds a warm glow to the skin. Again, you get so much product that it’ll last you a very long time!

Rouge Coco Lipstick— $37

Now I only have onw lipstick from the brand, 458 Marlene, and it’s the most beautiful natural pinky neutral shade. The formula is so lightweight and perfect for spring/summer. It’s moisturizing and keeps your lips nourished and looking natural. And honestly, it’s okay to treat yo self once in a while and splurge on a beautiful lipstick.

Joues Contraste Powder Blush— $45

These blushes are so silky, smooth, blendable, and pigmented. They’re finely milled so they’re not powdery and don’t apply patchily so your skin will look smooth. If you struggle with blush looking too intense or not blending out easily (and don’t mind splurging), give these a go!

Coco Mademoiselle— $72 – $124

This scent is so gorgeous especially for spring/summer! I love floral perfumes, but wanted something a little different and this has notes of Sicilian oranges, Sicilian Grapefruit, rose and jasmine to name a few. It’s a very fresh, girly scent. I’m not a huge fan of Chanel No. 5 because it’s more musky, woody, and sensual so if you’re looking for something light, floral, and fresh then definitely give it a whiff.

Le Blanc de Chanel— $48

So this is one of the first primers I ever tried, which is why I loved it at the time of this review, but tastes change and now that I’ve tried lots more primers, this Chanel one is not worth the money. By spending almost the same amount of money you can get better illuminating primers like this one from Marc Jacobs, Becca, Dior, or Burberry. Is this Chanel primer horrible or bad? Definitely not. It’s a good primer! But, it’s totally not worth the money because you can find better ones for the price!

Rouge Allure Lip Gloss— $37

I own the limited edition shade 22 Ideale, and it’s a milky pink shade that is sheer so it wears well on top of lipsticks. It’s a pretty gloss, but I’ve tried better ones that are less expensive. I mean, I’ll be honest and tell you I picked it up because of the beautiful packaging and because this shade was limited edition so I just took the plunge. This lip gloss is by no means a bad product, but it’s definitely not worth the splurge because you can find cheaper lip glosses that are more glossy, pigmented, and less sticky. I personally prefer my Buxom and Lorac lip glosses to this one, but because I’m a sucker for packaging I will probably end up purchasing another shade if it really appeals to me ;P.

  • That lipstick looks amazing! I would definitely splurge on that! :)

    • It’s so beautiful! I would highly recommend it :). I think this shade is LE though so get it while you can!

  • Rebecca Fletcher

    Ive never bought anything from chanel before. The soleil tan de chanel is something Ive been looking at for years now. I would definitely splurge on it!

    • I think the Chanel bronzer is well worth it! It was my first Chanel product, and I have no regrets!

  • I am totally in love with the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, it’s my favourite! I really want to try out some of the Chanel lipsticks. x

  • You’ve completely sold me on that blush! I think the packaging is gorgeous. The primer I’ve heard such good things about. This is probably the first not so good review about it that I’ve seen. I can definitely understand how it wouldn’t be worth the money.

    Thanks for sharing this- your photos are also so lovely :)

    • The blush is wonderful!! I need to get more springy shades. I feel bad because most people love it, but now that I’ve tried more primers, I just don’t think it’s worth it. I would much rather spend the $48 dollars and pick up one from Marc Jacobs or Burberry!

  • Out of all of these, the most I would like to try is the perfume. The others are too pricey for me for makeup. I’m glad you like this brand though :)

  • Totally agree on the choices! You need to try a Chanel foundation next :) if you’re oily I recommend the Perfection Lumiere Velvet, it’s super natural on the skin but still has good medium coverage.

    • I really do need to try a foundation, but keep holding out for some reason haha. I have combo skin so I was leaning more toward the Vitalumiere Aqua. Have you tried that one?

  • I love the Chanel blushes! I only have Malice in the powder formula but I also recommend the cream blushes, they’re excellent. I like the Rouge Coco formula (though I haven’t tried the newer one) but Rouge Coco Shine is probably my favourite. The rest, I haven’t really tried!

    Advaita | Blush Canvas

    • Ooh I need to try the cream blushes and more lipsticks! Any suggestions??

      • Presage is a nice coral cream blush. I think you’d also like Liberte from the Rouge Coco Shine range, it’s a nice peach for our skintone. :)

        • I think I remember you mentioning Liberte before. I will make sure to check that one out and the blush. Thank you :)

  • I love chanel for lipsticks, they’re amazing. I love the shade Aura.
    Also chanel blushers are really good too, I have two from them which I absolutely love. I hate the fcat that they don’t do their foundations in a shade dark enough for me.

    • I need to check out Aura! Which blushes do you have? Yeah, their foundations are really lacking in shades!

  • Too bad about the lip gloss. When you pay so much money, you kind of expect that the product will be up to bar. Coco Mademoiselle smells amazing. :]

    • Yeah, exactly! The $16 Lorac ones are better in my opinion. Coco Mademoiselle is so beautiful!

  • Sattanan Anumat

    I like the lipgloss but I’m agree with you that it’s not worth the money T^T really love the packaging especially the push up wand <3

    This was a brilliant post. All these products look gorgeous.

    • This is my first perfume from them and LOVE! Definitely give their lipsticks a go :)

  • This is such a lovely post! I don’t have a lot of makeup from Chanel and don’t even own one of their lipsticks but this is a great list! The lipsticks/blushes are a must try for me. x

    • Yay, I’m glad it was helpful! Definitely give their lipsticks/blushes a go!

  • Love the chanel tan de sole cream and liquid. Total splurges, but so pretty. I need a coco rouge lipstick though! Thanks for the post!

  • I always forget about my Soleil Tan De Chanel Bronzer, sometimes it looks very orange on my skin, but other times it looks so pretty. I think it’s a love hate product for me, though considering the price it’s definitely one I need to use more often, even if sometimes I look like a Umpa Lumpa :)

    • I can see why it may be too orange for your skin tone! They really need to release more shades that are suitable for lighter skin tones and deeper ones as well!

  • Wow gorgeous post! I’m such a huge Chanel fan. Dream of owning the lot!
    Becca | theBeautyInbox

  • Your chanel collection is drool worthy girl! I only own the tan de soleil and I agree with you, it’s totally worth it based on how much product you get! I have to say though I only tend to reach for it during spring/summer for some reason ._. need to try and get the most out of it! Thanks for the great recommendations ^_^

    Iqra | The Blushing Giraffe x

    • Thanks girly! I want to add to it haha. I tend to only use it during the spring/summer too. It gives the skin such a gorgeous summer bronze.

  • Bernadette

    That bronzer sounds incredible.
