Chanel Le Vernis #593 Rose Moiré & #595 Rouge Moiré from Fall 2013 Moiré Le Rouge Collection, Comparison & Swatches


Apart from Superstition Collection, Chanel is going to launch Moiré Le Rouge Collection (check promo photos here) this upcoming September. Moiré Le Rouge focuses on lips and nails. There are four nail polishes, two of them are new and two are re-promoted (#73 Violette and #179 Gold Shimmer). Today I would like to introduce you to the new nail polishes of the collection, #593 Rose Moiré and #595 Rouge Moiré. French word moiré is used in fabrics context to define textures such as silk with watered appearance, hence all the polishes have pearly finish.


Chanel Le Vernis #593 Rose Moiré & #595 Rouge Moiré

I would like to start with #593 Rose Moiré. It is defined as light pearly rose. I would define it as light pearly champagne rose. Because of its metallic pearly finish, it has some minimal brush strokes and needs careful application, but nothing too serious. It is a very office appropriate, easy to maintain color for those of you who wouldn't like to see each small chip on nails.

It has a nice sheen to it and color switches between being more rose or more champagne depending on the light. I applied two colors and it was perfectly opaque. With a thick top coat you can also minimize the brush strokes.

This one is surely a universal shade but I suspect it is dupable, so I started going through my stash to find something similar.

After the nail wheel swatches, I was a little surprised to see that there were no exact dupes. I was even more surprised by the fact that the closest shade in my stash was the re-promo shade from this collection, #73 Violette. These two are reasonably close and unless you are a collector, I wouldn't invest in both. 


Comparison of Chanel Le Vernis #593 Rose Moiré  with similar colors from my stash

Other similar colors are as follows:

  • Chanel #187 Antilope (discontinued): Similar finish, leans definitely more beige
  • Chanel #367 Trapeze (discontinued): Similar finish, leans more bronze
  • Chanel #153 Surprise (discontinued): Similar finish, leans more ivory
  • Butter London Champers from Summer 2013 Collection: Foil finish, a tad more bronze
  • Chanel #597 Island: Similar finish, more beige/peach in shade
  • Chanel #73 Violette (re-promo from Moiré Le Rouge Collection): Very close just slightly more peach and warm.

The second shade is defined as pearly red. I think it is pearly pinkish red since the sheen is pink over a red base, it leans slightly rosa overall. I used two coats but it was opaque almost in one coat. Consistency is very good, not thick or thin.

Under the sun, it has a very pretty sheen to it. In my opinion it shows more of that moiré quality than Rose Moiré does. Do I love that one more? I guess so! Maybe it is just me, but I have something against these "very office friendly and easy to maintain" shades, since I used to wear them for years non stop. Can you tell that I got bored? Rose Moiré looks like one of the only three nail polishes I owned long before I became a nail junky. Rouge Moiré is different though, it is classic and flattering.

Such a classical shade like Rouge Moiré, do you think it has dupes out there? Certainly, but let me check my stash first and see what comes closer.

When I first compared the bottle I was like Eureka! Ruby Slippers is a dupe! I even posted that on twitter. But after I started swatching, I have seen that it really is different, it is more vivid and certainly pulls more red. The closest shades I found was Illamasqua's Creator, which is slightly darker and Chanel #60 Vertigo (not the one which was released last Fall, but the older one) which pulls a bit more plum.

Here are the comparison results:

  • Chanel #587 Rouge Carat (discontinued): similar finish but definitely more bright and red.
  • Chanel #90 Matador (discontinued): also more bright and red.
  • Chanel #481 Fantastic (discontinued): more plum, sheen is less apparent.
  • Chanel #183 Shanghai Red (discontinued): sheen is muted, color is slightly more red.
  • Chanel Ruby Slippers (discontinued): brighter and more red.
  • Chanel #60 Vertigo (discontinued): The closest shade of the bunch, a tad more plum.
  • Illamasqua Charisma: Also very close, just slightly more plum/pink.
  • Chanel #637 Malice: close finish but definitely more darker.

Final thoughts: Two new nail polished from Moiré Le Rouge Collection are both classical shades and flattering across skin tones. Some may find them a bit boring, but if you are after good quality formula and a classical shade, check those out. Moiré Le Rouge Collection will be released in September.

Do you like these shades? Are you going to check them out?

  1. Love the post Sara! Your images are just stunning. I wonder how Rose Moire compares to Dior Destin. I cannot wait to get my hands on these.

    1. Thanks Jenny. Dior Destin is on the way to me and I will be comparing those too. As for the time being from what I have seen in swatches, Destin looks more gray/mauve.

  3. Rose Moire reminds me of the nail polish I used to covet as a kid, the kind that sold for $0.99 in the 80's and I couldn't afford to buy it.

    Your comparisons are the most epic, the most comprehensive anywhere. You really have an incredible collection of Chanels.

    1. Thank so much Belly! xox

      It exactly reminds me of those polishes from my childhood. Mom used to have one of those, at the time pearl finish was very trendy. I was sneaking in her stuff trying it on! Then at 90s they released Rouge Noir and I bought a cheep dupe of this which stained all my nails LOL! Anyway since then I am a vamp polish lover (blame Uma Thurman!).

  4. I think 'Chestnuts about you' by OPI is a good dupe for Rose Moire. What do you think?

    1. Hi,
      Since I don't own this color, I can't compare but from swatches I have seen, it seems to be close, leaning a bit more gold. The finish is different though, all Moire collection items (lippies and nail polishes) have pearly finish but OPI Chessnuts about you looks like a foil finish on swatches.

  5. Hi Sara
    I live in Canada and 179 & 73 are not available here. I was wondering where you got yours? I called the Las Vegas store and the Downtown Nordstroms in Seattle neither had them either!
    Thanks

    1. Hi,
      My counter said they only received a limited amount of repromoted shades. This one is a special Counter hosting Chanel Exclusives line, so I can imagine that those two are not available everywhere on every counter. If Seattle doesn't have them either, than maybe it is not there yet, I would wait a little because those polishes are on the promo pictures so they should be available at some point :-) I got mine earlier, when they were released some years ago but I know two special counters in Germany had those too.

  6. Your color wheels are wrong. Vertigo is a dark grey/black and Rudy Slippers is by China Glaze, not Chanel.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Chanel released two Vertigos with different number. You mention the one with number 563, if you see the nail wheel this one has #60. Also check out the bottles and you will see it is a deep red shade. As for Ruby Slippers, yes there is a China Glaze shade with the same name but Chanel also had a limited edition shade years ago. Check out the bottles and you will see it is Chanel.

I love to hear what you think. Fell free to write in English, German or Turkish.
