Yes, Virginia, there is Chanel Heaven, and thy name is the Chanel Makeup Studio.
One of three Chanel Makeup Studios in the US (Honolulu, Hawaii; Costa Mesa, California; and Seattle, Washington), the Honolulu studio, located at Nordstrom in the Ala Moana shopping center, not only lets Chanel junkies play with the company’s full domestic makeup, fragrance and skin care lines but also allows them to get their Chanel-addicted hands on exclusive international products not normally carried by Chanel’s regular US counters.
Some European Chanel products currently available at the Ala Moana Chanel Makeup Studio
- Chanel Irreellee Blush in Snow ($40)
- Chanel Irreellee Blush in Sable ($40)
- Chanel Les 4 Ombres De Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Beiges Velours ($55)

Non-Hawaii Chanel-aholics needn’t despair because nirvana is just a phone call (and a credit card) away. US residents may order Chanel’s international products by calling any of the three US Chanel Makeup Studios. Reach the Honolulu studio at (808) 953-6100. Ask for Sheila, the studio’s fabulous Chanel makeup artist, and tell her “Hi!” for me.
