We’re gettin’ close, ya’ll. The July release of Chanel’s Fall 2008 makeup collection is almost here, and I can smell the Chanel-ness from here. Back in April Chanel distributed some preliminary details about the collection, i.e. some teaser info. They told us to expect lots of gold, and I mean LOTS.
The collection marks the first for new Chanel Creative Director of Makeup Peter Philips, who took the position in January. Judging by these promotional pics and my weaknesses for gold and Chanel, Philips has a winner on his hands. I’m going to be falling in love.
Here’s a marketing rundown of the complete lineup… Keep tissue handy to wipe that drool off ya chin!
Rouge Hydrabase Lipsticks ($26) contain a moisturizing, long-lasting formula designed to provide medium coverage with a semi-matte finish.
- Simply Pink – coral pink
- Fantastic Plum – deep purple
- Great Copper – bronze
Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Color ($30) lipsticks promise to deliver a light, satin finish. I love the Chanel logo etched into the tube. So chic!
- Enthusiast – rich coral red
Aqualumiere Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF 15 ($26) lipglosses should drench lips in a sheer wash of super-shiny color.
- Formentera – beige rose
- Papeete – sheer cranberry
Levres Scintillantes Glossimer ($26) lipglosses pack rich, glossy color and shimmer.
- Amberlight – glossy bronze
- Delight – sheer lilac
- Gold Light – shimmery gold
Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer ($28) lip liners have a creamy texture and line lips without tugging or pulling. They come with a built-in brush designed for blending and a double-bladed sharpener, too.
- Pretty Pink – pink
Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadows ($55) are the latest limited edition Chanel quads. Every season I look forward to Chanel’s new quads.
- Reflets d’Ombre – coffee, ivory, dark green and gold shadows
Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($27.50) singles should deliver creamy color that lasts for hours. They come in matte, satin and shimmer shades.
- Le Bronze – metallic brown
- Bois Blue – dark teal
Irreelle Duo Silky Eyeshadow Duos ($38.50) will contain two coordinating colors.
- Cristal-Dusk – white and brown
Les Crayon Yeux Precision Eye Definer ($28) promise to deliver long lasting, precise lines around.
- Denim – grey blue
Facettes D’Or Highlighter ($56) is a finely milled, radiant highlighting powder that can be applied to the curve of the cheek or over the entire face.
- Gold Fever – golden shimmer
Joues Contraste Powder Blush ($40) promises soft, radiant color.
- Rose Dust – rose plum
Poudre Douce ($50) pressed powder contains light-reflective pigments to enhance skin’s natural radiance.
- Almond – radiant beige
Facettes D’Or Nail Color ($30) in a soft, gold color.
- Gold Fiction – shimmery honey gold
Les Vernis Nail Color ($19) promises a sophisticated, shiny finish for nails.
- Kaleidoscope – shiny green-gold
- Fantastic – deep wine
I’m really looking forward to the nail polishes, the Facettes D’Or Highlighter powder and the Glossimers.
Look for the Chanel Fall 2008 collection to be available this July. I promise to keep you posted!
I’m sorry today’s first post is so late; I got home from the midnight showing of the Sex and the City movie last night at 3 o’clock in the morning, and right now I’m really out of it. Staying up late was so worth it, though. The movie was great! The crowd was fun, too (I wasn’t the only one in heels and full-on fabulous makeup at midnight!). Yes, the movie made me shed a tear or two.
I won’t give away details (no spoilers here), but I have to share one thing that I know only fellow makeup junkies might appreciate. There’s a scene where Carrie and Miranda go to a drugstore. At one point Carrie studies a mascara in the makeup aisle, and just by seeing the side of the tube I knew that it was L’oreal Voluminous Mascara.
I was *this close* to shouting up at the movie screen, “Girlfriend! You better get the Carbon Black!”, but my mouth was stuffed with popcorn.
Hope you’re having a fantastic Friday. Let the weekend begin!
