Chanel Superstition Makeup Collection for Autumn 2013

Chanel Superstition Autumn 2013

See, I told you this was a good ‘un!

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.

Chanel Superstition Autumn 2013

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?

I love the Rouge Coco Shines! I think mine will be finished by the time these hit stores, so I'll get myself one of those :)

Have a great weekend!

Have you tried the eyeshadow palettes Emma? And if so, what did you make of them? I had one before and I found it very hard to blend out, was so disappointed with it I swapped it away, colours were beautiful though.

Everything looks gorgeous! I definitely need the matte pink single! Will be perfect through the crease combined with a shimmery pink :) xx

I love the colours they've chosen, the deep shades mixed with peaches and apricots, I loved what Lisa Eldridge did with the collection the the Chanel youtube channel. Dying to try the cream blushes, I've heard they're gorgeous!
