While drugstore products may be better than ever, nothing says luxury like pulling out your best Chanel makeup. While old-school brands can often give off a stuffy feel, that isn’t the case with the French fashion house. Even in the age of millennial-pink everything, Chanel Beauty has still managed to capture the hearts of influencers and makeup artists around the world. (We’ll admit its killer Instagram presence and truly innovative formulas certainly don’t hurt.)
Each glossy black compact embossed with those signature interlocking C‘s feels like a little treasure—and even if you can’t exactly swing a bag or a pair of shoes, a lipstick lets you in on the fantasy. But while beauty products are the easiest way into the brand, they aren’t exactly inexpensive, which is why our editors are often asked whether they’re actually worth the money. (Spoiler alert: yes.) In this case, you’re not paying for just that coveted label; the formulas are consistently top-notch and feel both wearable and user-friendly too.
Ahead, we asked Glamour editors to share the best Chanel makeup products they’ve ever tried. From a lipstick that goes on like the prettiest, sheerest Popsicle stain to a mascara that delivers all the volume without any of the flakes, here’s what’s absolutely worth spending your money on from Chanel.
