The CHANEL Fall 2010 Makeup Collection mirrors that of Coco Chanel’s iconic style; a study in contrasts. Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, pays tribute to her unique vision with a makeup collection for Fall 2010 that brings bold emphasis to the eyes, and keeps lips soft and delicate.

I’m always excited at the thought of fall makeup collections and this one  absolutely exceeded my expectations. If you like dark, smoky, sultry colours like I do, do not miss this collection—it’s gorgeous. 

LES 4 OMBRES QUADRA EYE SHADOW:  The essential eyeshadow compact in Enigma, features a shimmering peach, deep plum and two shades of deep smoky gray.  The eyeshadow is richly pigmented, silky smooth and has a beautiful luminescence to it; I tried to capture that in the photo above. I haven’t fallen this hard for a Quad since Smoky Eye—this is a must have.  $56.00

JOUES CONTRASTE POWDER BLUSH:  Sheer, natural-looking JOUES CONTRASTE  is updated with three new shades: Pink Explosion, a luminous pink; Rose Temptation, a shimmering rosewood; and Plum Attraction, a bold glistening plum.  Each shade has a slight shimmer to it.  $42.00

OMBRE ESSENTIELLE SOFT TOUCH EYESHADOW:  Two new shades of OMBRE ESSENTIELLE Soft Touch Eyeshadow bring further depth to the season’s dramatic colour palette: Taupe Grisé, a chocolate grey, and Vert Khaki, a cool khaki green.  Yes, you want these.  Trust me. $28.50

STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF LONG-LASTING EYELINER:  The STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF Long-Lasting Eyeliner in new Cassis, a pitch-dark plum, is my new holy grail eyeliner.  Smoky, dark and sexy, it’s Vamp for the eyes. $28.00

ROUGE COCO HYDRATING CRÈME LIP COLOUR:  The new classic lip colour plays up innocence and femininity with three new shades: Chalys, a delicate coral; Rose Dentelle, a tender pink; and Chintz, a soft peach (pictured). These shades finish your look without being overbearing.  $30.00

LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES GLOSSIMER:  There are four new shades of LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES Glossimer: Petite Pêche, a pale peach; Coral Love, a bright coral shimmer; Rose Dilemma, a soft pink (pictured); and Teaser, a vivid pink. $27.00

LE VERNIS NAIL COLOUR:  Is there anyone that does trend-defining, high-fashion, nail colour better than CHANEL?  Of course not. The must-have colour of the season is Paradoxal; a dark grey-violet that is, in one word, fabulous.  I am insane for this colour and while expensive, the wear that you get out of a manicure makes CHANEL Le Vernis a worthwhile investment.  $23.00
