GABRIELLE CHANEL

 

Gabrielle, is CHANEL’s first fragrance to be released in 15 years and it is heart-stoppingly beautiful. Brought to life by Olivier Polge, he was tasked by the brand to create a scent that embodied the very essence of Gabrielle Chanel — a woman who was equally fierce in her determination as well as passions, a woman unafraid to express herself at a time when such acts of defiance were practically forbidden, a woman who paved the way for so many who followed. This is Gabrielle.

CHANEL · Neon Wave Collection

 

Inspired by vivid pop culture, CHANEL has just released Neon Wave, a capsule collection comprised of four muted eyeshadows in the brand’s new formula, that act as the perfect balance for the four retina-searing nail lacquers. Once again, CHANEL has managed to surprise me (not easy to do, given the scope of products I see) and what’s more, is showing incredible foresightedness with this bold move. Oh, and let’s just say that this is the first time I’ve ever actually wanted to wear neon along my nails.

CHANEL · Travel Diary Fall/Winter 2017 Collection

 

For me, there’s few things that are able to take the sting out of Summer ending — one of them being the arrival of CHANEL’s Fall 2017 collection. Taking cues from a California road trip, CHANEL Global Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica created Travel Diary. Inspired by the play of lights & colours on the landscape from earliest dawn to nightfall, as well as the vista from the coastline all the way to gritty downtown LA, these hues capture those fleeting photographic moments … in makeup form, naturally.

CHANEL · Les Beiges de CHANEL 2017

 

CHANEL has recently added to the Les Beiges lineup with new foundations, blush shades, and finally … an eyeshadow palette. The premise behind this range is all about that ‘bonne mine/healthy glow’ effect that doesn’t involve an armada of products to achieve, thereby living up to Coco Chanel’s beliefs of liberating women from anything confining. Personally, with Summer’s heat (and humidity) upon us, I’m all about easy-peasy makeup that will not only look good but require the least amount of effort on my part to get there. Because I can be lazy like that (but still a little vain, if I’m being honest).

CHANEL · Ombre Première Eyes Collection 2017

 

CHANEL is poised to launch the Ombre Première Eyes Collection 2017, consisting of new shades & products for eyes and brows, along with two new brushes. Lucia Pica, Global Creative Make Up and  Colour Designer for the brand, has gone back to the drawing board re: the formulations, because even as a lifelong devotee, I was unprepared for how amazing everything would turn out to be. Consider this my beauty love letter to CHANEL.
