The Blue Illusion de CHANEL Collection was created by Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup to portray the intangible hues of summer blue.  First seen at the CHANEL 2012 Spring Summer Haute Couture show, the collection perfectly complemented Karl Lagerfeld’s sea of blue on the runway.

Like a cloud-strewn sky, eyes take up shimmering reflections that change with the light.  The grace of an almost nude face showcases eyes with marine depths, mellowed by the radiance of blue tones.

On eyelids, ILLUSION D’OMBRE takes on a scintillating and satiny effect that makes eye makeup glow with each bat of the lashes. Two airy shades of grey blue, one pale, DESTINATION, and the other more intense, APPARITION, adapt to all faces. LE CRAYON YEUX BLEU AÉRIEN borders the eyelids with an intense stroke, like a horizon line over the ocean.


For the final step of this chromatic journey, LE VERNIS SKY LINE sweeps nails with a delicate shade of pearly blue that captures and softens the light in its pearly reflections.

The Blue Illusion de CHANEL Collection includes:

ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Apparition and Destination


LE CRAYON YEUX Precision Eye Pencil in Bleu Aérien

LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Sky Line
