WWD reports that Chanel is coming out with a new foundation and concealer line come February 2009. It is called Lift Lumière.
“The Lift Lumière launch fits into the framework of the general Chanel foundation strategy to provide every customer segment the perfect foundation with exceptional quality,” said Dagousset. “The new foundation and concealer provides antiaging benefits without compromising coverage.”
The foundation contains a complex to help protect collagen and elastin, as well as “Liftoptic,” that has spherical silicone powders (hmm, sounds familiar!) and “photochromatic” pigments to keep your foundation color looking the same in any light–now that I like. The concealer will also have tetrapeptide to aid in the reduction in fluid build-up under the eyes. The foundation will retail for $65 with nine shades, while the concealer retails for $45 with three shades.
I’ve never used Chanel foundation — anyone else? Loved it, hated it? Which one did you try?
Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Corail ($45.00) just has indulgence and luxe written all over it–from the tweed patterned blush to the texture of the product. Tweed Corail is a soft peachy color with subtle gold shimmer. While it looks a little too peach-orange, it is sheerer when applied. You can build up the color moreso if you desire, but you needn’t fear overdose from the get-go. One of my pet peeves are blushes that are so pigmented that you almost always get too much product on your cheeks. I’d much rather have buildable color than have to fix it! The texture of this is so smooth and silky, the powder goes on so easily and blends seamlessly with your skin. I’m really loving the way these feel, so I might have to nab one or two of the other shades next time I’m at Nordstrom’s.
Anyone else try these? What do you think?

Chanel Mini Glossimer Trios ($50.00) I haven’t seen these before, but it looks like they have come out previously. Oh, well, still new to me! Now, this might just get me to go out and buy some Chanel and fast!
Available in two tonalities: the beautiful warmth of Les Soleils includes Pin-Up, a beige peach; Coral Reef, a pink beige; and Glow, a bronze peach — and the delicious coolness of Les Roses includes Magnifique, a sparkly pink; Glaze, white pink; and Satinette, a pearl pink.
This is a very quick post, because I’m in between classes, and I can’t get over how lovely the Beiges de Chanel quad is. The quad comes from Chanel’s Holiday 2008 offerings, which are lovely in their own right, but this is the only item I’ve been able to see and play with in person. I did a super fast look using the quad before I jetted off to class–seriously, five minutes or less–and I was so pleased with the results! The colors are so soft and smooth, and they’re incredibly flattering. They blend seamlessly with each other! I even take back what I said about the “highlight” color — it might swatch chalky, but it softens like a dream when actually used. So truly, I urge you all to visit your local Chanel counter for a look-see and swatch-a-roo when it’s fully released! (It’s been popping up in some areas, but not all.)
Chanel’s Holiday 2008 collection includes Beiges de Chanel, which is a great quad of soft, warm tones. It’s perfect for subtle holiday eyes, as well as more dramatic combinations (by using the dark brown with gold shimmer color). The colors were silky smooth and had good pay off. The only one with a chalkier texture was the “highlighter” color, and for that purpose, the texture works out. I really love the bottom left color – it is just this gorgeous muted golden tan color. This is such a classic quad well-suited for the holiday season.
