Coco Chanel herself was said to wear gold eyeshadow and red lipstick. It seems the Chanel Holiday 2011 Les Scintillances de Chanel collection hearkens back to the original look Mademoiselle herself favored. The collection is full of limited edition items but if you had to take away the overriding theme – red and gold. When you think about it, around the holidays with lots of parties and celebrations, it doesn’t get more festive than red and gold. And besides, in my opinion red and gold are the best accent colors to Chanel’s signature black and white.
One of the standouts of the collection are the textured pressed powder inspired by a Chanel belt buckle. The collection also includes loose powders, eyeshadow singles, eyeshadow duos, Rouge Allure lipsticks, Glossimers and of course, Le Vernis. The collection should be available in stores now.
Details of the collection:
LUMIÈRE SCULPTÉE DE CHANEL HIGHLIGHTING POWDER
A true visionary, Mademoiselle Chanel found inspiration everywhere. Today, the Paris Makeup Studio does similarly — capturing the gilded beauty of Mademoiselle’s treasured belt buckle in LUMIÈRE SCULPTÉE DE CHANEL Highlighting Powder, an illuminating powder that gently highlights the skin with a sheer blend of tender pink and pearlescence. Shades of ivory and pink dusted with tone-on-tone mother-of-pearls make this palette the height of glamour and sophistication. $72.00 Limited Edition
