Les Essentials de Chanel Fall 2012 Makeup Collection
The little black dress, the quilted handbag, the two-toned shoe â" the iconic essentials created by Coco Chanel inspire Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, to create the elegant Fall 2012 Collection, Les Essentials de Chanel. Classic pinks and natural beiges soften the face and lips while fuschia and modern black dress the nails.
Chanel Lumiere DâArtifices Beiges Illuminating Powder with Shimmer (Light beige, Rosy beige) $65 This highlighting face powder epitomizes the modern-classic look of Fall beauty and the artistry of Chanel. Enchantingly rendered to resemble sequins, the duo of lighter and darker beige shades blends together harmoniously for a subtly iridescent complexion, extending a summer glow.
The limited edition staple of this line is the LumiÃ¨re dâArtifices Beiges, a bronzer that combines lighter and darker beige shades to extend your summer glow. At $65, this highlighter has a sparkly shimmer on the top layer that will only appear before the first brush swipe is made in the compact. The Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss, a $32 pure shine long-wear lip gloss, is the other product of this collection that comes in limited edition colors â" âTroublantâ and âCaprice.â Chanel calls it the next generation of lip gloss that makes lips feel comfortable and never sticky or tacky.
Le Vernis fallâs colors include âVertigo,â an almost black lacquer with red pearly particles, âSuspicious,â a beautiful fuchsia, and âFrenzy,â a flirty lilac grey shade. For $26, Chanel promises long-wearing, high-shine, chip-resistant nail colors due to their state-of-the-art formula.
