Chanel Azure 657 - Swatches and Review

Personal Collection
*Cruelty Free status in Question


Good afternoon! Right now I have one of the newer Chanel releases to show you - 657 Azure (not to be confused with 465 Azur).


Chanel 657 Azure


Azure 657 is part of their L'été Papillon De Chanel Summer 2013 Collection and is described by Chanel as a “metallic blue green” and that's a pretty good description. It's a DUOCHROME! It shifts from a paler, green-leaning teal to a deep but bright blue. Application and formula were good on this one. It's self-leveling and actually almost completely streak-free. I used two easy coats for full opacity and no top coat for the photos.

What do you think of this one? This was the one that I was sure I was NOT going to buy. And then I saw it in person. The duochrome in it won me over.

Chanel polishes, including this collection (which also has Lilis 647 and Bel Argus 667) are available at Chanel.com, various department stores and Chanel counters nationwide and retail for $27.00.
