Almadine is a Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip Colour ($34USD). It is a beautiful deep plum that comes with a clear gloss. This shade is super gorgeous and the lasting power is incredibly. I simply could not remove the liquid lip color from my arm after the swatch.
Caractere is a Rouge Coco lipstick ($32.50 USD). It is lighter compared to Almadine and has subtle gold shimmers. This is also another beautiful deep plum shade that's fitting for fall.
Parfait is a Rouge Coco Shine lipstick ($32.50 USD). It is a sheer light pink with gold shimmers. This shade is pretty but really sheer. It took 4-5 swipes just to build up the color.
Caprice is a Rouge Allure Extrait De Gloss ($32 USD). It is a lovely rosy pink with very subtle gold shimmers. While the color is lovely in the swatch, it applies as a milky pink on the lips. This is best layered on top of a lipstick like Parfait.
Sweet Beige is a glossimer ($29.50 USD). This is a really lovely dark rose with gold shimmers. I'm particularly fond of this because it's a MLBB type of shade.
In darker setting:
There are also 2 new lip liners and 1 eyeliner released in the collection.
Amarante is a precision lip liner ($29 USD). This is a deep plum that will go well with Caractere lipstick.
Rose Naturel is a precision lip liner ($29USD) and is true to its name, a natural rose shade.
Silver Light is a shimmery silver Stylo Yeux eyeliner ($32USD). I'm generally a fan of the Stylo Yeux formula but I felt that this tester pencil was particularly dry and the shimmer didn't apply evenly.
There are also several new eyeshadows in the collection. I didn't see Ebony or Black Star listed in the product sheet but couldn't find Noir or Midnight Blue.
Eclaire is a shimmery gold.
Furtif is a shimmery gray-silver.
Complice is a shimmery pink peach.
Ebony is a satin black with no shimmers.
Black Star is a satin shimmer with silver shimmers.
Despite looking really shimmery, Eclaire, Furtif, Complice, and Infini all have this surprisingly smooth texture. I did not expect this at all.
In darker setting:
Overall, my favorite items from this set so far are the lip products. I surprise myself at how much I gravitate towards the darker lipstick shades. Caracte, Almadine and Sweet Beige are outstanding. I normally love shades like Parfait and Caprice, but found them to be not as unique compared to the rest. The eyeshadows are too shimmery for my liking but the texture is really smooth, not chunky as you would expect.
My top picks: Almadine, Caracte, Sweet Beige
