Chanel Spring 2011 Makeup Collection: Les Perles de Chanel

When I think of Chanel, a few things immediately come to mind: black/white, camelias, the quilted 2.55 handbag, and of course – pearls – lots of them.  Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel believed the light-reflecting property of pearls enhanced a woman’s natural beauty by bringing a delicate luminosity to her skin.  For Spring 2011, Peter Philips was inspired by Coco Chanel’s love of pearls and so he created Les Perles de Chanel.

We got a preview of the makeup collection during the Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear show but now we have a full look at all the products.  I especially love Le Vernis Black Pearl, the Glossimer in Aragonite, the Shimmering Grey eyeliner and the eyeshadows.  Les Perles de Chanel will be available in department stores, Chanel boutiques and on Chanel.com in January 2011.

Chanel Introduces Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

CHANEL INTRODUCES ROUGE ALLURE EXTRAIT DE GLOSS

Inspired by the classic Chanel Rouge Allure range of lipstick, Chanel has released Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss – a “new generation” of lip gloss.  The Extrait de Gloss offers extremely rich color, intense shine, and a smooth, silky texture that feels luxurious and looks dramatic.  I’m a big fan of lip gloss and I had a chance to try this at the makeup counter.  It wasn’t sticky at all and I loved the shine – it gave a nice finish to the look.  Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss is available in nine shades and can be purchased at Chanel makeup counters and online for $32.

Chanel Soho Story Collection

For me, SoHo is a place where Bohemian ideals meet the toughness of the city… I love the tension and energy this creates.

-Peter Philips

To commemorate the re-opening of the Chanel Soho Boutique, and just in time for New York Fashion Week, Peter Philips created the Soho Story Collection features feminine pinks juxtaposed with industrial metallics.  The collection includes a palette inspired by pop art with the letters SOHO stamped in the powder.  One swipe of all 4 shades gives you a healthy, natural glow.  From nails to lips, the Soho Story Collection covers all bases.  Peter Philips explained,

I had a specific girl in mind who is both hard and soft. A girl who discovers a new city, a new life.” adds Peter Philips. “This is a very special kind of New York woman.  She is innocent, but she has a steely determination that fuels the city.

The full collection consists of: Soho de Chanel ($65.00), Quadra Eye Shadow in Stupendous, ($56.00), Rouge Coco in Stunning, ($30.00), Rouge Allure Laque in Stunt, ($32.00), Glossimer in Star, ($27.00), Le Vernis in Steel, ($23.00), Le Vernis in Strong, ($23.00).  Chanel’s Soho Story collection will be available on chanel.com on September 7th and September 10th at the SoHo Boutique (Fashion’s Night Out).

LES POP-UP DE CHANEL SUMMER 2010 MAKEUP COLLECTION

Coco Chanel made tans chic, and now Peter Philips had concocted a summer cosmetics collection that will make bronzed skin glow.  Inspired by Mademoiselle’s idyllic seaside vista, Les Pop-Up De Chanel, boasts a fresh crops of colors that will surely be the cult favorites of the summer.  Neon pink, sunny coral and brilliant turquoise are sure to complement any glowing tan (faux or not).

The limited edition collection features Soleil Tan de Chanel (Moisturizing Bronzing Powder), Rouge Allure (Luminous Satin Lip Color $32), Aqualumière (Sheer Color Lipshine SPF 15 $29), Aqualumière Gloss (High Shine Sheer Concentrate $27), Gloss Fluo de Chanel (Brilliant Lip Shine $27), Lèvres Scintillantes (Glossimer $27) and Le Vernis (Nail Colour $23).

I’m especially loving Le Vernis Nail Colour in Nouvelle Vague – it’s a bit reminiscent of the ever-popular Jade but it’s a bit more blue evoking the Mediterranean Sea. All of these colors looks great together and will take you from the beach to le club. Les Pop-Up De Chanel Summer 2010 Makeup Collection hits stores in May 2010. I know I can’t wait to get my Nouvelle Vague!
