The new shades of Chanel Le Vernis nail polish are very special. I adore their milky opaqueness creating a stable color base for three of the new shades of an orange, a peach and a pink. But the real star is the deep stormy grey with the green shimmer built in.

EYES

CHANEL Inimitable Waterproof Mascara –  CHF 47.00

(In Switzerland both shades are only available at the CHANEL Parfums et Beauté Boutique in Geneva)

Designed to look rich with a single sweep across the lids, those eyeliners stay thanks to the formula until you are ready to wash them off.

(In Switzerland both shades are only available at the CHANEL Parfums et Beauté Boutique in Geneva)

Chanel – Les 4 Ombres Eyes 2014 Collection

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyes 2014 Collection

First launched in 1982, CHANEL‘s Les 4 Ombres, the ultimate cult palettes for the eyes, have enjoyed a tremendous success over all those years. In 2014, a new chapter is added with 8 new quads inspired by the house’s famous tweeds, the fabric Coco Chanel loved so much. Each palette contains four eye shadows, of which each represents a colored tweed thread.

Les Essentiels de Chanel – Fall 2012 Makeup

MA2011_03_0038Les Essentiels de Chanel

Let me introduce you to Chanel‘s new Fall 2012 makeup collection, LES ESSENTIELS DE CHANEL, created by Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup. The collection was inspired by Coco Chanel’s signature style, “her essentials”: The little black dress, the quilted handbag and the two-toned shoe. Personally speaking, it is a very wearable makeup collection with classic pink hues and natural beiges to soften the face and lips while modern grey-black or sophisticated light taupe dress the nails.

In stores in Switzerland end of August 2012.
For the preview and nail colour swatches, please scroll down:

Lumiere

LUMIÈRE D’ARTIFICES BEIGES – CHF 84.-

Designed to extend a summer glow, this limited-edition duo of lighter and darker beige shades—enchantingly rendered to resemble sequins—blends together harmoniously for a subtly iridescent complexion.

My tip: If you have got one of Chanel’s limited edition highlighters from previous collections, you won’t need that one. The design looks beautiful, but the effect is pretty much the same compared to the preceding shimmering powders.

 

Extrait

ROUGE ALLURE EXTRAIT DE GLOSS – CHF 48.-

Bold colour combines with the smoothest, silkiest gel texture for luxurious wear and deeply dramatic effect. Lips feel comfortable—never sticky or tacky—and look luminous, full and sensuous for hours.

The double-sided, flocked applicator is beveled to deliver ultra-precise definition.

My tip: Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss comes in a new shade, so-called 68 Troublant, which looks stunning worn alone for the day. For a darker, more glamorous effect for night, I recommend adding the new lip definer Le Crayon Lèvres in 54 Amarante CHF 34.-.

Amaranet

 

LEDC-Nails

NAIL COLOURS – CHF 35.-

Long-lasting, chip-resistant nail colour straight from the runways of Paris (for a previous post, please click here). State-of-the-art formula strengthens and moisturizes nails. Unique patented non-spill bottle with wiping action for easy application.

My tip: Those nail polishes are a must, get them all! If you have to choose one colour, I would recommend 559 Frenzy, the new light taupe shade, that is different, new and so sophisticated!

Chanel Polishes 3

Frenzy

 

STYLO YEUX

STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF (EYE PENCIL) – CHF 35.-

Waterproof, smudge-proof eyeliner delivers long-lasting definition with a twist of the wrist: Colour winds up when you need it, winds down when you don’t. Gentle, soft, silicone-enriched formula delivers smooth, even lining. A built-in sharpener at the opposite end detaches for quick refreshes.

My tip: This is your perfect companion for the beach. Line and define the upper and lower eyelids based on eye shape and desired makeup result and it will stay on the whole day even after excessive swimming. I love 88 Noir Intense.
