Chanel Xmas Make up Collection 2012! Xx



Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, has reinterpreted the
 legendary “rouge noir”, enriching it with gold and bronze. 
It is at the heart of the Christmas 2012 collection,
and sets the trend.

The 'rouge noir' shade is in the eyeshadow quad,
 there is an waterproof eyeliner, 
and in the shades of the Rouge Allure Lipsticks
and Levres Scintillantes.

The Limited Edition Le Vernis is Malice
A red with a black Sheen 








REGARD SIGNÉ DE CHANEL 
Harmonie de Soir is the Eyeshadow quad
each shade is designed to look like
A replica of a CHANEL suit button, each shade has a quilted effect
 and is stamped with a double “C”.


There is  a plum red shade which ties in with the Rouge Noir theme, a
smoky taupe a shimmery pink, and a gold, the texture is very soft and powdery. 


OMBRES CONTRASTE DUO NUIT-CLAIRE
is a black with a light shimmering effect and an
iridescent beige and 
ILLUSION D'OMBRE APPARENCE a pale gold

STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF GRENAT

COMPLEXION
POUDRE UNIVERSELLE LIBRE RÊVERIE
a soft natural finish loose powder which is a blend of fine gold and silver glitter.
And we are loving the Blush the JOUES CONTRASTE in STAR DUST
A pale pink which is 
 richly dappled with iridescent gold, 



ROUGE ALLURE VELVET L'IMPATIENTE  is an intense “rouge noir” 
coordinated with the nail polish.


LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES


ALLÉGORIE - Beautifully transparent, a delicate pink with a silver sheen. 
MYSTERY - A natural, fresh and intense pink.
INTRIGUE - A red brown that highlights the natural color of the lips.




We went to see the collection at Chanel Covent Garden
which is right opposite the Apple Store in Covent Garden Market
It has been transformed for Christmas into the most beautiful store
 to buy the most special gifts both in Make-up and Perfume
and you can try out all of the Exclusive Fragrances












There was a calligrapher downstairs writing special cards for us on one of four
special quotes from Mademoiselle Chanel herself:

'Elegance is being Equally beautiful inside and out'

'The more feminine the woman, the stronger she is'

'For women there is only one science that of loving and being loved'

'To be irreplaceable one must always be different'

Which is your favourite?




Chanel's Brand Ambassador Sophy Robson
was there doing amazing manicures
