Chanel Etats Poétiques Makeup Collection

Chanel-Etats Poetiques

This fall, CHANEL launches its new poetic makeup collection ÉTATS POÉTIQUES inspired by passion and emotion with the main focus on eyes.

Eyeshadow aficionados should be all over it – along with a neutral shadow quad, the new releases include six shades of Ombre Essentielle singles. A redesigned eyeliner pen defines a tone of mystery with a sleek felt tip for ultimate precision.


It is an intriguing game of opposites: innocent and stormy, soft and intense. A spectrum of pink shades, a poetic tenderness, balanced with tones of purple, radiant yellow and dramatic grey.

Art of poetry that we love… here is the complete collection:
