An Inside Look at Chanel’s Covent Garden Pop-Up Store

Chanel Covent Garden Pop Up Store

In the past two weeks I’ve posted about Chanel opening up a pop-up store in Covent Garden and now that the store is open I was able to find some images online of the boutique. The Chanel Covent Garden boutique boasts a nail bar, makeup stations where you can get makeovers and cosmetic vending machines coming in the fall.

Celebrity makeup artist Lisa Eldridge of the Chanel makeup video tutorials will drop by in December to give makeup lessons and nail artist extraordinaire Sophy Robson will be at the nail bar. You’ll find the store stocked with the Chanel cosmetics range including hard-to-find limited edition collections. The Chanel Covent Garden boutique is open now through December 2012 – to learn more about upcoming events visit the Chanel Covent Garden website.

Update: Chanel Covent Garden Pop-Up Store

Last week I posted about Chanel opening a pop-up store in Covent Garden just in time for the Olympic Games.  I recently learned new information that I wanted to share.  It appears the boutique will be dedicated to makeup and beauty products which is the first Chanel beauty pop-up store that I can think of.  Chanel has already launched a microsite devoted to the Chanel Covent Garden pop-up shop but all you can see for now is a countdown to the launch. The site also has some answers to frequent questions which you can see below.

The makeup at the Chanel 2012 2013 Fall Winter Haute Couture Show was beautiful as always but the nail art stole the show.  The interweb is abuzz with Chanel’s foray into nail art.  The two colors featured are May (Spring 2012) and Silver – a limited edition color from Spring 2007.  Don’t fret, silver is a pretty easy color to come by these days so you can replicate the manicure pretty easily if you want to.

Chanel’s Peter Philips Presents: Mirror, Mirror

chanel miroir miroir peter philips rouge allure lipstick
Peter Philips has been creating some interesting short films like “Here Comes the Beauty Pack”, “Shade Parade“, “A Polished Look” and “Mani-Morphosis” that showcase the beauty products he creates for Chanel in unique ways.  His latest film Miroir, Miroir (Mirror, Mirror) highlights the new collection of Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick out in September 2012; the collection features sixteen new colors ranging from shades of orange, red and fuchsia.

Taking inspiration from a mirror-embellished coat Karl Lagerfeld designed for the Métiers d’Art Paris-Bombay pre-fall collection, Peter Philips painstakingly glued pieces of mirror on model Inguna Butane’s face for over three-hours. Peter Philips stated: “I’m a huge fan of visual communication…a sparkle is more than just one frozen moment. It’s a chain of images, because it moves, like a firework. And that’s something that you can only see in film or in real life.”

First Look: Chanel Bleu Illusion Makeup Collection

chanel bleu illusion

Back in January we got a sneak peak of Chanel’s Bleu Illusion makeup collection that debuted on the Chanel Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 runway. Peter Philips created a collection awash in blues and the new limited edition products are: Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Apparition (gray-ish blue), Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Destination (silvery satin blue), Le Crayon Yeux Eyeliner in Blue Aerien (intense luminous blue), and Le Vernis Nail Polish in Sky Line. Describing Chanel Le Vernis Sky Line, Peter Philips stated: “It’s a beautiful, easy to apply, pearly- on the edge of metallic- shade that matched perfectly with the range of blues that Karl used for this haute couture collection.”

From the images the Bleu Illusion collection is very pretty but there’s a part of me that’s having horrible flashbacks of the 1980s and blue eyeshadow. I think in moderation this look can be really pretty and complements different eye colors. The Exclusive Collection BLEU ILLUSION will be available at specific points of sales in July 2012.

Chanel “Paris-Bombay” Bombay Express 2012 Makeup

chanel bombay express makeupBack 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.

chanel bombay express makeupThe 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.
