Hot Coral Lips and Silver Fingertips for Chanel Summer 2010

Published in: Makeup, News

All morning long I’ve been JWoWW-ing over the makeup that Karl and Co. sent down the runway for Chanel’s Spring/Summer Haute Couture show in Paris earlier this week. Turns out the look was a sneak peak at a couple of soon-to-be launched pieces from their summer makeup collection.


Karl gave Peter Philips, the Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, three key images to inspire the makeup for the show: neon baroque, chemical pastels and liquid silver. Oh, Karl! You so crazy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Peter managed to make it work, though, spotlighting lips with pops of neon matte coral. That’s Rouge Allure Lipstick in Genial, arriving on Chanel counters this May. I’m a *fiend* for coral lippies, so I’m definitely stalking this.


Are you drooling over this nail polish like I am? That’s Le Vernis Nail Colour in Silver. Sorry, US babes, the color isn’t available (yet) here, but I’m trying to find out if/when it might hit our shores. Will keep you posted…

The models also wore a new eyeshadow duo called Ombres Contraste Duo in Gris-Subtil. Officially, the 2010 launch date’s unknown, but off the record I’ve heard rumors that it might be hitting shelves in April, so keep your eyes peeled for that as well.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Yikes! my tummy’s rumbling… What’s for lunch? I’m eating a turkey sandwich and a cup of minestrone soup.

    I like the make up on that model – so light and airy but edgy and hot!!!!

  4. Amanda says:

    I adore (absolutely ADORE!) this lippie. I must have it too. It kinda reminds me of the spring pret-a-porter one from lancome, chris n tell, which I’ve been lovin’ too. but I didn’t want to go thru all the hassle of trying to track down a super limited edtion l/s, so getting the chanel is a MUCH better option for me. Plus I just love the color shown here. I’m also going to check out Bobbi Brown-i heard she is doing new coral lipsticks for spring too.

      The entire BB Coral Cabanas launch looks hawt. I haven’t had the chance to see it yet, but hopefully I’ll get to this weekend when I go to the mall.

      How have you been? Got any exciting plans for the weekend?

  5. Marce says:

    Ah, Karl, I pray that your imagination will keep up coming up with fabulous ideas, and Peter Phillips, I will construct an altar in your honor. I need that coral lippie!!!
    How are you Karen? Long time no see! I was at the beach, but now I’m back I’m stalking you and Tabs again ๐Ÿ™‚

    That lip color is so freaking gorgeous!

  7. CC says:

    My favorite nail polish of the moment, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Celeb City, looks just like that!!! It looks like silver foil in just 2 coats. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Karen says:

      Thanks for the dupe, CC! I hope I can find it…

      • CC says:

        No problem! I bought mine at Target. The shade isn’t on their website, but if you google it, you can see photos of it. It’s a little less delicate-looking than the Chanel shade, but still pretty great :). Just be sure to use a base coat so it’s easier to remove.

  8. Anna Phylactyc says:

    China Glaze Millenium looks just like that np! And eh, I’m not much of a coral-lip kinda gal but now I want silver streaks in my bangs, go figure.

  9. Katie says:

    I think the lips would be beautiful for spring. I also really like the eyeshadow duo. The nails are gorgeous, but just not my style. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Vanessa H says:

    I’m a little hesitant about the lips for myself, but love how they look on the models! I’m already loving silver nails, I have silver tips on mine right now!

    Lunch was a turkey sandwich and a mini bag of hot cheetos (addicting little things).

    Have you found your new shoes yet?

  11. Eileen says:

    I’ve always loved the combination of gray and coral. Nina was right when she said it’s edgy and hot. I can hardly wait to see the complete collection.

  12. Sonja says:

    That lipstick WILL be mine. It’s just…right! The whole look just…fits!
    It looks more like just rose mixed with creme pink to me…But I love the name too (my favorite Rouge Allure is called Genius, this is Genial, i’m just saying…)

    Ah, lunch, that was half a day ago..let me see, a black risotto with calamari and some parmesan cheese.

  13. Marley says:

    I have to have that lipstick. Like, NOW. I’m obsessed with corals. I’ve got Lancome’s Chris and Tell coming in the mail (it gets here Wednesday!!!) and I’m sitting here mentally cataloguing all my coral lipglosses and lipsticks….I really like Clinique’s Peach Pop too- it’s more of a true coral than the Chanel, but the same satiny finish.

  14. Erin says:

    I LOVE this whole look! The nails, lips, etc. Hope the polish comes out here!

    omg. must. have. that. lipstick. can’t WAIT til it comes out!

  19. Tavia says:

    I love the lip color but I don’t like silver on my nails. What’s up with those huge bows? I really like bows, I own a few….but these are ridiculous. It would have been nice if they’ve made something that I could wear, well at list inspiring ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. amy says:

    I will be on the look out for Rouge Allure in Genial for sure because I am loving matte/creme bright lipsticks. I hope the Silver nailpolish will be released in Canada too because I picked the Chanel Kaleidoscope two years ago and loved it. The chrome finish is hot!

    • Yaz says:

      Does any one knows when/where will the Chanel “Genial” lipstick is going to be sold in Canada? Because I have been searching on the Chanel canadian website and the summer collection is not even featured (god knows why because we are already in may…). Any way, I’d appreciate any info, I am dying to buy this lipstick. ๐Ÿ™‚

    O those nails, are so futuristic. I’m slowly getting into pink shades, that pink is so pretty.

  25. Veky says:

    Lips are really very nice! I would love to wear this color but it’s just not for me ๐Ÿ˜€
    On the other hand, I don’t like hair and clothes in this show, it looks somehow funny and unreal… ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. SS says:

    those nails are totally not from a bottle! they are minx, the stuff Beyonce uses on her nails. After every single silver, gold, and bronze (Opi, Lippmann, Essie, Covergirl, Zoya, EVERYTHING!) Nothing looks like that. It’s the heat-applied nailpolish stuff,

  27. Michele DiCola says:

    I want that lipstick!

  28. Mollie says:

    That lippie reminds me of a toned-down version of MAC Impassioned. Also, I wonder if those pale blue/silver streaks are the look that Kate Moss was trying to emulate the other day at that Longchamp event?

  29. Isa says:

    right Mollie.. like an impassioned but more corally — also looks like YSL’s #29 coral lippie.

  30. Cris says:

    I have a very similar color to that chanel lipstick, its MAC’s Fanfare. I love it!!!

  31. Sakura says:

    I love both! I’ve been craving coral because it reminds me of a summer trip to Miami! And silver nails-LOVE IT! It’s snowing here in Philly! Snow is so exciting—unless you have to drive! Tomorrow my husband and I hope to go sledding with the recycle bin lids!
