If you’ve been to a Chanel makeup counter lately then chances are you’ve seen the new Chanel Superstition Fall 2013 makeup collection. I visited the Chanel boutique in San Francisco a few weeks ago and the collection was already there. I picked up a blush in 63 Révélation – the pretties pink perfect for sun-kissed summer skin. What I love about the blush is that is starts out as a creme and comes to a powdery finish – perfect for staying power and blending.
The Chanel Superstition collection is named for Coco Chanel’s own love of good luck charms and her own superstitious leanings. Gabrielle Chanel was a firm believer in luck, and surrounded herself with her favorite talismans and charms (shafts of wheat and lions for example).
A firm believer in luck, Gabrielle Chanel surrounded herself with her favorite charms and talismans, as much for good fortune as for inspiration. The symbols that warded off superstitious fears now serve as silent muses for an enchanting Fall makeup collection. Sumptuous khaki tones are set off by new ‘lucky charm’ duos: entrancing, shade-matched pairs for cheeks and lips.
Here’s a breakdown of the collection:
