Chanel Particuliere: I came late to the party and wished I hadn't paid so much for admission


Chanel Particuliere
Could've sworn that it looked less like milk chocolate on other peoples' hands and more of a sophisticated taupe color, almost grey-leaning... but on my hands, it looks like milk chocolate. I also had a bit of trouble with the application: mine actually applied sort of streakily (you can see this on my ring finger -- second from the right). This sort of color at this sort of price shouldn't take three coats, should it? I'm keeping it for now because it might grow on me (maybe?) but I wouldn't be surprised if I swapped or sold this one day.

flinty, I'm always happy to see your posts because I think we have similar skin tones.

Aren't swatches on other skintones so misleading? :(

this colour reminds me a bit of essie mink muffs, which i have just used for the first time, and LOVE!it's a bit darker, and has a kind of purpley greyish undertone. have you tried it?

Hm, I'm not a fan of Chanel anyway, way overpriced if you ask me. They do have some lovely colours though, but I don't like this one too much. It looks different in the bottle in your picture, I like that colour more.

Bummer!! I have Milani Teddy Bare (supposedly a dupe) and it applied like a dream! One coat, if you can pull it off! :-)

I know that feeling!... I had the same experience with Color Club High Society (ughh) Some swatches can be really misleading

I think I know the answer to this mystery. Not all Particuliere's are created equal. My original bottle is definitely greige, but my back-up bottle was more warm/beige with some red undertones. Even Chanel - the luxury of super luxuries - can't keep their formula consistent!!!

Man! That looks like Misa's Moody Model!

I really liked this when I first got it, but since then it has been eclipsed by Paradoxal, it just looks better with my colouring. I will still wear Particuliere though - mine is more greige so still suits me.

Reminds me of a chocolate malt milkshake. How annoying that the polish formula changes.
