Chanel DENTELLE PRÉCIEUSE, Perfection Lumiere Velvet & Les 4 Ombres! Xx

Check out the newest offerings from the Chanel Make up Counter.

Launched on 25 April Dentelle Precieuse 
- an illuminating compact powder
of two contrasting shade of beige pink and bronze 
to sculpt the face and illuminate perfectly.

The Chanel make up Creation Studio was inspired by lace which 
Gabrielle Chanel considered  
“one of the prettiest imitations ever made of nature’s fantasies”*, 
because they reminded her of the incomparable designs 
embroidered across the sky by the leaves and branches of trees. 

* In L’illustration, 29 April 1939 

You should also try the newest Chanel Foundation Perfection Lumiere Velvet
which is a lightweight second-skin foundation.


  It naturally smoothes and evens out the 
complexion for a velvety matte makeup result. 
The lightweight texture of PERFECTION LUMIÈRE VELVET 
makes it perfect for normal and combination to oily skin. 
This ultra-soft emulsion instantly becomes one with the skin, 
transforming into a natural powdery matte 
finish that disappears onto the skin.

In an instant, the complexion appears flawless.
Not only are all imperfections on the face diminished, 

but the skin texture and pores are also reduced. 

Try one of the new blushes in the unique 
accented shades Canaille and Vivacite.




And finally take a look at the gorgeous collection for the eyes perfect for
perfecting that smoky eye effect.

This is a collection of 8 Les 4 Ombres - four shadow palettes, 
3 Le Volume de Chanel - Waterproof Mascaras, 
and 4 Stylo Yeux Waterproof - Eyeliners.

Les 4 Ombres were originally created in 1982 and this new formula
is inspired by tweed the iconic fabric of the house.
Based on a selection of House tweeds the four 
shadows are like the coloured threads of 
the fabric weave and match perfectly.
The new formula of Les 4 Ombres has a soft and long-lasting texture
which is easy to apply.  It is exceptionally 
concentrated with pure pigments
and has a soft fine and silky feel.
There is no talc in the formula which heightens
 the radiance and translucency of 
the intense colours.  There are a combination of satin, 
iridescent and metallic shades which are luminous
with a long lasting finish.



 Above: the four ways to apply them:
 natural eyes, intense eyes, almond-shaped eyes or smoky eyes,

Each Le 4 Ombres has two contrasting shades (on left) 
to blend in a gradation
one dark shade to intensify, sculpt add depth
and one light shade to illuminate and 
give the eyes a wide open effect.
