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.

Dee & Ricky Limited Edition Lego Chanel Lipstick

Dee & Ricky Limited Edition Lego Chanel Lipstick

The infamous kidult twins Dee & Ricky just released their newest limited edition Lego piece – the Chanel lipstick.  These are not for wearing – not on your lips anyway.  The duo has found fame by making Lego accessories ranging from hearts, music notes, crosses and even cigarettes.  I must say this is my favorite by far!  Limited to only 50 pieces, you can get yours by emailing the twins at INFO@DEEANDRICKY.COM.

Peter Philips on the Fall/Winter 2010-2011 Haute Couture Red Lip

chanel fall/winter 2010-2011 haute couture beauty
The Chanel Fall/Winter 2010 Haute Couture show featured very simple makeup with a striking red lip. This is the look Coco Chanel herself preferred so it should come as no surprise that it showed on on the runway. Also, Chanel recently released its Rouge Coco line of lipsticks in their attempt to “bring lipstick back” and what better way than to feature it on the runway? See the Global Creative Director for Chanel talk about what inspired the faces on the runway…

VogueTV: Peter Philips in 80 Days

VogueTV: Peter Philips in 80 Days

Peter Philips, the artistic director of Chanel Beauty has made quite a splash since he joined the Chanel team in 2008.  In his short time there he’s already created cult classics like Gold Fiction, Jade and Particulière.  Now you can watch the master make-up artist at work behind the scenes at runway shows, in his studio, during beauty shoots and in business meetings.

I especially love these videos because you get rare glimpses into fittings (which still take place in Mademoiselle’s salon), details of some of the accessories, the Lesage embroidery studio, and even the archives where you catch sight of original Chanel beauty products and Coco’s very first little black dress. View the videos from VogueTV below…

Chanel is Bringing Lipstick Back: Introducing Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour

Chanel is Bringing Lipstick Back: Vanessa Paradis for Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour

Chanel is Bringing Lipstick Back: Vanessa Paradis for Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour

They say lipstick sales are “recession proof” – in fact – sales usually go up. Why? Because it’s an inexpensive way to look beautiful and freshen up your look. Chanel is taking note and bringing lipstick back to a young customer base that is infatuated with lip gloss. This March, Chanel is introducing Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Colour – and bringing back the lost art of sexily applying your lipstick.

Vanessa Paradis, the French actress (and Johnny Depp’s leading lady) is the face of the campaign and this is not the first time Paradis has worked with Chanel.  Andrea D’Avack, president of Chanel Fragrance & Beauté, stated: “Vanessa has been very linked to the house over the years, and she represents a young, sophisticated woman who we also believe will be the consumer for Rouge Coco.”  Print and TV ads have been shot though it’s still unclear whether TV spots will be placed in the U.S.

The Rouge Coco line has 30 shades and each hue is named after an influential part of Coco Chanel’s life – Camelia, Mademoiselle, and Paris – to name a few.  The shades come in one of four color families Roses-Pinks; Reds-Corals; Violets-Berries, and Neutrals-Browns and will be available in different global markets.

Like many Chanel cosmetics, the packaging takes it’s cue from Chanel’s history with black and gold detailing, interlocking C’s and the Chanel name embossed into each lipstick bullet.  The Rouge Coco collection debuts in March with each lipstick retailing for $30 at fine retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and Chanel.com.
