CHANEL | Le Rouge Collection N°1 Fall 2016 – cont’d

CHANEL Le Rouge extras opener

 

Recently arrived, I have a few more pieces from CHANEL’s Le Rouge Collection N°1 for Fall 2016 to show you — and the reason why they weren’t included in my earlier posts. Lucia Pica’s first collection for this beauty giant, is based on red – a favourite hue of Coco Chanel herself, and a colour that invokes the strongest and most intense reactions from any other in the spectrum. Plus it’s sexy as all get-out, and you can’t go wrong with that.

CHANEL Le Rouge extras 128 Rouge Brûlé

128 Rouge Brûlé Illusion d’Ombre, limited edition (CAN $41.00) | A cream-to-powder eye shadow in a high-shine metallic copper/rose gold colour. I’m going to put this out there: I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS SHADE TO COME INTO MY LIFE. Bearing absolutely faultless pigmentation, this can be worn alone for megawatt impact or layered under similarly hued powdered eyeshadows to provide staying power and more depth of tone. You do have about a minute to play/blend before it sets because after that it will not budge (that’s over prime lids).

CHANEL Le Rouge extras 58 Rouge Vie

58 Rouge Vie, Rouge Allure Velvet (CAN $43.00) | This is the brand’s version of matte, done the CHANEL sophisticated way. A positively perfect red hue with both cool and warm tones in the base, making it wearable by a broad range of complexions. The finish is as described: velvety — but it’s also plush and quite opaque, offering amazing coverage from the first swipe. Staying power is excellent as well, with some obvious fading seen after eating/drinking.

97 Désir Precision Lip Definer (CAN $33.00) | A searing orange-red lip liner hue in a creamy formula that has enough give to provide an effortless application (no tugging or pulling, thank you very much) but still manages to stay stiff enough that you can use it for more precision lining as well. It comes with a separate sharpener, and while I love using retractible pencils, you can only get the sharpest point by sharpening it the old fashioned way.

TIP: Using a lip liner that’s a few degrees lighter in colour than your lipstick may provide a slight illusion of fullness to lips (which is exactly what I’ve done in the swatch photo below).

929 Agapé Stylo Jeux Waterproof, limited edition (CAN $35.00) | For the most part, CHANEL’s Stylo Yeux eye liners are my absolute favourites and for a number of reasons: excellent colour payoff, smooth & gliding feel to application, non-irritating and quite long-lasting. This shade is a complex rich hazelnut brown with burgundy glints in its base, and will look amazing on everyone, not to mention being a great alternative to wearing black.

I have to bow to CHANEL’s genius with the release of this collection: every single piece I have tried (which is basically the entire collection; I’ll be picking up the last two items I don’t currently own) has been nothing short of STELLAR. Building an entire collection around the colour red, was a bold & inspired move from the brand’s new makeup head and her gamble paid off because it totally rocks. For the record, I have been totally vibing on red, berry, & rust hues for some weeks now and the results slay me every.single.time.

Available now at CHANEL counters nationwide
