CHANEL · Le Vernis, Numéros Rouge Collection Libre 2017

 

 

 

Wrapping up my reviews on CHANEL’s Numéros Rouge Collection Libre for Holiday 2017 with this unique — and somewhat puzzling — trio of nail lacquers. Straddling the border between urban & festive, each shade offers a new take on the traditional holiday fare: a deep moody green, a hot neon, and a lush jelly-like black. Trust, CHANEL to make you look twice.

CHANEL · Cheek & Lips, Numéros Rouge Collection Libre 2017

 

In complete line with its name Numéros Rouge Collection Libre, this Holiday 2017 launch from CHANEL also includes several red lip options and one vivid blush that I actually dare you to try and look away from. After all, it’s the holidays and who doesn’t like ramping things up with a glam red lip?

CHANEL · Trait de Caractère & Silver Screen, Numéros Rouges Collection Libre 2017

 

The CHANEL Numéros Rouge Collection Libre Holiday 2017 has hit counters at top speed, and not surprisingly, is selling out lightning fast. The collection is actually centred around the theme of ‘the perfect red lipstick’ (review on the lipsticks coming soon), with today’s featured Trait de Caractère Eyeshadow Palette & Silver Screen Ombre Première meant to act in supporting roles — although we all know that as far as CHANEL goes, individual pieces really don’t like to play second fiddle. To paraphrase that famous line in Dirty Dancing “no one puts Baby in the corner”.

CHANEL · Le Vernis, Collection Chiffrée

 

The recently launched Collection Chiffrée from CHANEL may be small as far as releases go, but no less impressive just the same … not to mention selling out at lightning speed. With inspiration culled from Gabrielle Chanel’s life, each of the lacquers in this collection bears a number that played a significant role for Mademoiselle; Nº19 — in honour of her birthday (August 19), Nº22 — for the year the namesake fragrance was created, and Nº31 — to commemorate the House’s address on Rue Cambon, Paris. Interestingly, but perhaps not surprisingly, all three are in shades of green, albeit trust CHANEL to give this often hard-to-wear hue a fresh new vibe.

CHANEL · Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour

 

Inspired by the power of numbers that were held most dear to Mademoiselle, CHANEL just launched Chiffres Entrelacés Healthy Glow Luminous Colour, part of the limited edition Collection Chiffrée. Displaying an intricately-wrought pattern which retraces all the iconic numbers from the life of Gabrielle Chanel, I almost couldn’t bear to mar its pristine surface with a brush … but I’m so, so glad I did.
