Today is the launch of Chanel’s Numéros Rouges collection and is a collection of iconic statement pieces teamed with a few unexpected shades.
Chanel’s global creative makeup artist, Luca Pica, wanted to create a collection synonymous with Gabrielle Chanel and help find the perfect red for every woman.
We have some of the key pieces to share with you, including the 5 shadow eye palette, ombre cream eye shadow, eye liner, three of the lipsticks (all in varying reds), the gloss and some interesting nail varnishes.
For the eyes:
Some classic shades within the Trait De Charactére palette. A forest green teamed with smoky grey, chocolate and two highlighting shades.
It’s not a palette that you will open and gasp “wow” at but it’s a good fail-safe palette that you can rely on and create multiple, very wearable looks with.
It has a mix of shimmer and matte finishes with a soft pigment pay off. Layering is required to build any kind of density although the shades do blend very easily albeit with slight drop down.
The liner with the collection is in a similar forest green and offers a nice alternative to the standard black. Blends well and is completely waterproof.
I love the ombré cream eye shadow applies in a rich sparkling gold but the fine shimmers of silver give it a cool wet look finish. Can be worn alone or buffed out under your powder eye shadow.
The lips are only good to you if you wear red, but they are, in typical Chanel style, very chic, elegant and bold.
I really love the nail shades. We have the vinyl black in celebrity and the neon in scenario. Chanel nail varnishes never have great staying power (in our opinion), but the shades are always beautiful.
This collection is available from today in all your normal Chanel location or online here.Pixiwoo.com
