We’ve already seen the delicious new cream to powder blushers in action but today let’s have a sneaky peek at the rest of Chanel’s’ autumn makeup collection.
Superstition is inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s interest in good luck charms and talismans, and as a collection, it’s as beautiful and wearable as you could wish for.
There’s a lipstick to pair with each new shade of blush: two shades of Rouge Coco in Icone (golden beige) and Mystique (apricot), and four versions of Rouge Coco Shine in shades of pink and burgundy: Secret, Instinct, Rendez-Vous and Esprit.
Both lipsticks are amongst my favourites: the Rouge Coco formula is creamy and opaque, whereas Coco Shine is all about a sheer and glossy pout, but with generous colour payoff, too. They’re both priced the same, at €30.50 a bullet.
There’s always huge anticipation around a new shade of Le Vernis and here we have three to titillate and tempt: the milky pink Elixir, muted with a touch of grey; the limited edition golden khaki of Alchimie; and the deep grayed out khaki of Mysterious.
Chanel nail polishes are one of my biggest weaknesses: I really want all three, but at €22.50 will be limiting myself to just the one. I think.
As for the eyes, a more chic selection of shadows would be hard to find. Mystere (€47.50) is a quad of four deliciously sophisticated and flattering shades of khaki, ivory and taupe – there’s a mix of mattes and shimmers to play with shadow and light.
It will be joined on counter by two single shadows in Hasard and Gri-Gri, priced at €27.50 a pop.
Launching on August 16th, there’s lots here to love and not a single shade you won’t get lots of wear from. I’m smitten – are you?
