A firm believer in luck, Gabrielle Chanel surrounded herself with her favorite charms and talismans, as much for good fortune as for inspiration. The symbols that warded off superstitious fears now serve as silent muses for an enchanting Fall makeup collection.
The CHANEL Superstition Collection for fall features sumptuous khaki tones, set off by new ‘lucky charm’ duos. Shade-matched pairs for cheeks and lips. If you’ve always loved the idea of matching makeup, whether it’s cheeks and lips, nails and lips or coordinating your eyeshadow to a complementary lip shade, you can do it with this versatile collection.
The CHANEL Superstition Collection for Fall 2013 includes:
The cornerstone of this collection are Cream Blushes that feature an innovative cream-to-powder formula. Easy to wear, with great pigmentation, these blushes offer true color with all-day wear. If you’re not a cream blush fan, I bet CHANEL will make a believer out of you! Shades include Destiny (golden beige), Presage (apricot), Revelation (soft shimmering pink), Inspiration (soft blue pink), Affinite (intense blue pink) and Fantastic (burgundy). $38
Lip shades in the following formulas coordinate with the Cream Blushes. My favorite formula is the Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine and you absolutely must have 88 Esprit (bottom right) for Fall.
Eyes make a statement with the Limited-Edition LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow (top) in MYSTÈRE. Shades include golden khaki, golden ivory, silver taupe and matte khaki. It’s gorgeous!
If you’re a single eyeshadow lover, you’re going to want the OMBRE ESSENTIELLE Soft Touch Eyeshadows in this collection. Two classic shades: Gri-Gri (bottom left, limited-edition metallic taupe) and Hasard (bottom right, matte lavendar), $28.50. The way I suggest using the eyeshadows is a modern smoky eye, using the darkest shade from the eyeshadow quad (top left), with Hasard in the crease and the golden ivory shade to highlight. So gorgeous!
Nails are always a highlight of any CHANEL Collection for me and for Fall, there are three shades of Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27): Elixir (milky pink), Alchemie (golden khaki, not pictured) and Mysterious (deep khaki, which I’d call more of a deep olive green). So striking and as always with the CHANEL formula, flawless application and wear.
The CHANEL Superstition Collection for Fall 2013 is available now in department stores including Nordstrom. This collection will definitely become a staple of your Fall look with colors that are wearable and can easily translate into your wardrobe.
