Chanel Links!

The end of October was a bit busy for me because my daughter was celebrating Halloween for the first time with trick or treating and events at school and I took some time to spend with my family. But, Chanel news doesn’t stop coming. Here are some of my favorite Chanel-related items…

Karl Lagerfeld sketched a “no smoking” sign but it’s not your typical sign. However, he was not making a statement about unhealthy habits, instead he was noting all the YSL references on many runways and he was stating that you would find a “smoking” – the french term for tuxedo – on his runway. Lagerfeld stated: “We don’t have to do smoking. Hedi Slimane really does it well.” WWD

Les Expressions de Chanel & Le Volume de Chanel

LES EXPRESSIONS DE CHANEL

One new collection for holiday and a new mascara from Chanel are available now at Chanel makeup counters. I’m going to get my Illusion d’Ombre in Vision (gold) today – I’ve been waiting all year for it to come out!

LE VOLUME DE CHANEL

Elegance is elevated to the extreme with new LE VOLUME DE CHANEL Mascara, a high-precision mascara that achieves instant volume with intense colour. In a single stroke, its innovative formula expands and plumps lashes to their fullest. Carbon black pigments deliver lush colour that adheres to lashes, while Camelia Oil nourishes, protects and moisturizes. New Chanel exclusive ‘Snowflakes’ brush articulates each lash; long bristles evenly coat lashes while small soft bristles separate and build volume, creating an eye-opening effect. The result: A modern lash look for drama that makes a bold yet elegant statement.

LES EXPRESSIONS DE CHANEL

Eyes speak volumes with elegant eyeshadow harmonies that accentuate the dramatic new lash look of LE VOLUME DE CHANEL Mascara.

The essential eyeshadow compact with countless options, LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow introduces new shade harmonies with complementary colour. The intense shimmer of ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow debuts dramatic new hues, to highlight eyes with beautiful contrast and bold glow.

New LIGNE GRAPHIQUE DE CHANEL Liquid Eyeliner Intensity – Definition delivers precise lining and definition with extreme shine. The liquid liner formula features innovative polymers for deep colour and long-lasting wear. Delicate bristle design lets you flawlessly draw dramatic definition. In a range of three intense shades.

Chanel No5 Ad Campaign with Brad Pitt Teaser Videos

Chanel No5 Brad Pitt
Today Chanel released three teaser videos of the new Chanel N°5 ad campaign featuring Brad Pitt. The three videos each show an image of Brad Pitt next to a question which he reads.  We are told we’ll get the answer next Monday, October 15th, 12.01am Paris time. I can’t wait to see this campaign because “for the first time” a man will be the face of a women’s fragrance.  Not only a first for Chanel, but a first for the industry.  Here are the three videos – can’t wait to get the answers on Monday!

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Show Beauty

Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear Show Beauty

Pearls played a huge part in the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Ready-to-Wear so it’s no surprise that the makeup was luminous and iridescent like pearls. I loved the large pearls in the models’ hair – very similar to the pearls from the Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 ready-to-wear collection only larger. To learn how to make similar pins, check out my post on DIY Chanel-Inspired pearl hairpins.

Usually the first thing I look for is the new Le Vernis but all the images I could find looked like the models were just wearing a clear top coat or a traditional French manicure. We learn below that there is a new color that was used – not sure what Eastern Light looks like but I’ll keep you posted!

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup used the following CHANEL products to create the runway beauty looks:

Skin prepared with HYDRA BEAUTY SERUM Hydration Protection Radiance

The Complexion
VITALUMIERE Moisture-Rich Radiance Fluid Makeup SPF 15
ECLAT LUMIERE Highlighting Face Pen

Fashion’s Night Out – Les Twin-Sets de Chanel

les twin sets de chanel fno
This year Chanel did not have any actual events at their NYC boutiques, instead they launched Les Twin-Sets de Chanel to commemorate FNO and were open a bit later. I stopped by the boutique to see the colors first hand and they were very pretty up close and personal. I was able to only get one photo before the security guard informed me that I couldn’t take photos so sadly, I did not get a picture of the lipsticks. If you live near a Chanel boutique I would definitely stop in to see the new colors – I especially love La Provocante & Provocation. Which are your favorites?

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color Collection

Chanel Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Color Collection
New ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Intense Lip Colour represents the next generation of the classic ROUGE ALLURE lipstick. Its stunning colour is the result of a concentration of ultra-thin pigments, specially designed to magnify shade intensity. Lighter hues have a unique presence, revealing nuances and depth. Darker tones heighten the drama, with audacity and pure elegance for an ultra-feminine effect.

Colour brilliance is only part of the story of new ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Intense Lip Colour. Special hydrating agents and antioxidants, rich in green tea and sappan wood, leave lips supple and protected for lasting comfort, while tea butter ensures colour endures for the ultimate wear. A range of sixteen seductively intense shades, from a delicate beige to a black-red.
