Which do you prefer and why?

Included pics from Fashionphile for “consistent” lighting since I don’t own both pieces. I have not seen the 21C rose clair in person and the color varies a lot in different lighting

Neither...the 19S iridescent caviar looks and feels cheap (I returned my purchase), and the 21C rose clair is too fleshy with peach undertones. 19S pink without the iridescence would have been perfect!

Have you seen 21C in person? Is it more of a blush rather than a light pink? I’ve seen many photos on IG and the color varies so much.

Thank you.

I’m really digging the subtlety/nude tint of the pink hue of 21C. Not a fan of iridescent in general....perhaps because it leans more trendy and, thus, has a greater tendency to get tiresome. However, if you’re looking for a “strong” pink, then 21C is not a good option. I personally love it though.

I haven’t seen it in person. Just videos sent by my SA and probably the same pics you’ve seen on IG. It seems too peachy with orange undertones to me, so I passed on it since it’s way too close to my skin tone. That said I think peachy colors look good on others!

Any pics you can share? :smile: I think this would be the perfect color for me for a small classic flap but I haven't been able to locate many pictures of this color! I have always wanted the perfect beige/nude flap but beige clair was too yellow-ish for me

Depends on how much of a pink lover you are. I have a few pieces in iridescent pink and I LOVE it!! It's such a unique colour imo. I haven't seen rose clair in person, but based off the photo it appears a bit more on the dusty rose side.

Germany, but soon Ban Island :)
Tough decision, both are beautiful!

The iridescent colors are growing on me, I really have to check it out at my local boutique when the iridescent bags of the Spring/Summer collection arrive...

But I voted for the 21C rose clair, I think this color is easier to match and for regular/daily use

I can share pics of mine if you want, I can maybe take a picture for you next to another bag or colors so you can see the different tones? I am not sure I will be able to capture the exact color. It's really sheer, definitely looks pink next to my beige bags. It's actually quite glossy, not iridescent but shiny and glossy. Let me know if you need more pics!

I have both of these in the medium size
I completely disagree with the comments regarding the ‘fleshy’ colour of the rose Claire. I also thought it was this colour from photos and videos but in real life it’s a true baby pink without any beige or peach undertone. Its one of the most beautiful shades that Chanel has ever. I also have the 14C pink and this is the closest in colour but more matt - the 21C is more beautiful and the caviar has a beautiful sheen to it
