Les Aquarelles de Chanel Makeup Collection

Les Aquarelles de Chanel Makeup CollectionLes Aquarelles de Chanel, the newest makeup collection from Chanel, is the corresponding makeup collection to the Summer haute couture collection.  You may remember, but the Chanel Spring-Summer 2011 haute couture collection was inspired by the paintings of Marie Laurencin, specifically a portrait she painted of Coco Chanel, hence the name Les Aquarelles which is French for watercolors.  The soft watercolors translated to a palette of soft pastelles and breezy fabrications of chiffon with light reflecting beading. The makeup collection to match is just as light and soft.

The highlight of the collection is the limited edition OMBRES TISSÉES a graduating color palette with beiges, pinks and peaches (creating a signature tweed effect) perfect for sweeping on eyes or cheeks (or both).  The collection also includes blushes JOUES CONTRASTE in Pink Cloud and Rose Pétale, eyeshadow OMBRE ESSENTIELLE in Gris Exquis, lipstick ROUGE COCO SHINEin Royallieu, mascara STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF in Ebene and LE VERNIS in Tendresse.

Les Aquarelles de Chanel can be purchased online on Chanel.com or in Chanel boutiques.

  1. This is a really pretty collection. I already have and love Royallieu, these sheer pinks really complement my ultra pale skintone. I hope these will be released in the UK. I really want that eyeshadow palette and the Gris Exquise Ombre Essentielle.

    Not that I need anymore eyeshadows, i just recieved Emmerveille and Epatant Illusions D’Ombre’s and adore them – so easy to apply and really long wearing.

  2. I love the Illusions D’Ombre’s as well. I wear Emmerveille everyday – so easy to wear. I just apply with my finger!
