Special thanks to Carine for her fabulous guest swatches of Chanel 159 Fire — it looks like the perfect, classic, cherry-red creme.
I have to think that Fire was limited edition (or discontinued) in the U.S., since I can’t find it for sale online anywhere.
So is it warm or cool? Based on Carine’s photos, I would have said cool — and I still think it is. But warmth or coolness is a spectrum, not an absolute. In certain light, under a flash, on certain skintones, and/or next to other, cooler colors, it may look warm (or warmer). I actually think this shade is actually pitch-perfect to please a variety of skintones.
