Back in December I showed you the beauty for Chanel Métiers D’Art Paris-Bombay Pre-Fall 2012 collection and now we have official images of the pieces in the Chanel Bombay Express makeup collection. The collection features a lovely Poudre Compacte called Route des Indes de Chanel which is a lovely golden color used to highlight and matches many skintones. As with all of Chanel’s special palettes, the Route des Indes de Chanel compact features an Indian-inspired design.
The collection also includes Illusion d’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Nirvana, a deep black to give you the effect of kohl-rimmed eyes. Nirvana differs from Mirifique because it looks like a truer black without the silver sparkle and mulit-color shimmer of Mirifique.
The Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Brume d’Or is a lovely pinkish-peach with a hint of gold and the new Rouge Coco Shine
in Empreinte is a nice nude color to balance out the dramatic and bold eyemakeup. Finally there’s Le Vernis in Diwali, a luminous gold shade named for the Indian festival of lights.
I love the items in the collection – I’m a huge fan of dramatic eye makeup with a nude lip and I think these colors will look especially pretty with a tanned summer glow. The collection is set to release this month.
