Chanel comparison: Rouge Flamboyant and Laque Rouge anno 1980/81 vs anno 2014

Yesterday I showed swatches of the new releases/repromotions of Rouge Flamboyant 38 and Laque Rouge 71 as part of Les Rouges Cultes de Chanel, click HERE.

In this post I will show you a comparison between Rouge Flamboyant 38 in the 2014 version and the original first released in 1980 – in both the Made in France and the Made in USA versions and between Laque Rouge 71 in the 2014 version and the original version first released in 1981.

First Rouge Flamboyant 38:
Chanel Rouge Flamboyant 38 left to right: The 2014 release, the original Made in France released in 1980 and the original Made in USA with shimmer.
Index is the original Made in USA it is a little tad darker and has a beautiful shimmer, middle is the original Made in France and it seems to be a bit thinner (but my bottle might have been thinned at some point) but otherwise it’s the exact same nuance as the 2014 version seen on my ring finger and pinkie.
Old Made in USA, old Made in France and the new 2014 release.

Next is Laque Rouge 71:
 Chanel Laque Rouge 71 in the original version first released in 1981 and the 2014 repromotion - both with boxes
On my index and ring finger you see the original – on my middle and pinkie the 2014 version, and there is no difference.

I would have loved to show a comparison between the old an the new Rouge no 19, but I do not own the old version, maybe you can help me?

Chanel Rouge Flamboyant 38, Rouge No 19 and Laque Rouge 71 - Les Rouges Cultes de Chanel 2014 swatch spam

Les Rouges Cultes de Chanel collection fall 2014 is a repromotion of 3 old red Chanel classics: Rouge Flamboyant 38 (1980-1999), Laque Rouge 71 (1981-1986) and Rouge No 19 (1986-96).

Rouge Flamboyant 38 anno 2014:
Chanel Rouge Flamboyant 38 is a gorgeous and shiny true red – Chanel makes those reds sooo well. It’s a creme polish with a very subtle so called hidden shimmer not visible to the naked eye, but on the one nail shot you see it.
It is opaque in one coat but this is two coats without a top coat.
I will soon show you a comparison between this new 2014 release and the first released Rouge Flamboyant 38 in both the Made in France and the Made in USA versions. 

Rouge No 19:
Rouge No 19 is a muted berry red with a beautiful shimmer. It is opaque in one coat but this is two coats without a top coat.
Unfortunately I do not own the original version, but am looking for it if you by any chance have a spare (a used one is OK) you want to part with. 

Laque Rouge 71:
Laque Rouge 71 is a vampy and gorgeous dark red creme with a beautiful shine. It is opaque in one coat but this is two coats without a top coat.
I will soon show you a comparison between this new 2014 release and the first released Laque Rouge 71. 
I'm happy Chanel brought back these old classics to us - they are truly beautiful!
Do you like them?
Tomorrow I will show you a comparison between the originally released Rouge Flamboyant 38 and Laque Rouge 71 and the newly released...

Chanel Rose Flash swatches - vintage - Collaboration Saturday

You are right - it is time for another Collaboration Saturday together with my friend Elena from PicturedTinsel!
Rose Flash 39 is a beautiful slightly duochrome with a strong pink flash and a pink/peach/orange shift. It is fairly sheer, but two coats could be enough, but my ridges shone through, so I went for three coats without a top coat! 
I don't know how old it is - it's older than 2002 - do you know?
What do you think of Rose Flash?
I wonder what Elena  has for us, I'm pretty sure she continues her Dior Rock Your Nails collection...

Pretty Jelly Mizzle swatches

Pretty Jelly Mizzle is a very pale grey holo – discrete, elegant, work friendly and yet with an edge.
Mizzle means a fine, misty rain, a perfect name for it!
The holo is lovely in the sun without being noisy, visible in artificial light and very subtle in all other light settings – as expected from a light color like this. All you need is two rich coats or three thin coats, the dry time is super. Here it is shown without a top coat. 
Do you like Mizzle?
It was sent for review from Edgy Polish where you can buy it and a LOT of other interesting and beautiful indies!!

Liquid Sky Lacquer Babi’s Bur-Bindi swatches

Liquid Sky Lacquer Babi’s Bur-Bindi is described as an extreme burgundy holo – I feel it’s more of a mix of a light shade burgundy with a bit of brown, brick and bronze – it’s not as dark as a burgundy wine – but pretty! Also it’s not as extreme a holo as the other extreme holos from Liquid Sky Laquer, but it’s strong in the sun. This is 2 easy coats with a coat of Seche Vite!
