Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel Collection


Chanel Las Vegas de Chanel Collection

A city arises from the middle of nowhere in a feverish vision, like a mirage. Under the azure blue of a cloudless sky, Las Vegas keeps the desert dust at bay in the hypnotic ballet of neon lights. Along the Strip, the luxury hotels and casinos set the scene for a modern fairytale in which all dreams are possible. Amongst them stands the Bellagio Hotel. Its sumptuous gallery will welcome an entirely remodeled CHANEL boutique in earlier this year. An elegant stopover in a modern-day treasure hunt.

Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, creates a gold-plated collection and strews stardust over polyester dreams. The iconic gold of CHANEL elegance slips into every texture. A silky powder on the skin, sunny lacquer on the nails or a sheer whisper on the lips, it highlights a radiant face that’s on a lucky streak.

The Exclusive Creation of the collection concentrates the entire spirit of Las Vegas in its traditional square case. Lined up in rows, four shades of sand and bronze sweep through every variation of a fabulous desert in which gold embraces the sun and shines. On the surface of the colours, an embossed star design seems to extend a warm welcome to the city of dreams. For an illuminating makeover, a beveled brush is ideal for choosing and blending shades, sweeping lightly over the cheekbones, face or eyelids.

Includes:

  • Lucky Stripes Irridescent Powder for Eyes & Cheeks ($95.00) Shades of sand and bronze
  • Brilliant Rouge Coco Shine ($32.50) Sheer gold
  • Vegas Gold Precision Lip Definer ($29.00) Gold
  • Gold Fingers Le Vernis ($28.00) Semi-sheer gold

availability: The Exclusive Creation Las Vegas de Chanel products are available now at the CHANEL Bellagio Hotel and Wynn Hotel boutiques, chanel.com. Please call 1.800.550.0005 for availability.

Video Review: Chanel Knightsbridge Collection – First Impressions & Swatches

Video Review: Chanel Knightsbridge Collection – First Impressions & Swatches

This video takes a look at Chanel’s Knightsbridge Collection, which is a chanel.com exclusive launch that includes three new and limited shades of Rouge Allure Lipsticks, one new and limited edition Glossimer, and one new and limited edition Highlighting Powder & Blush. My favorite product was definitely Kensington, and my least favorite was Chelsea. The powder is pretty but wasn’t impressive enough to merit the heartbreaking price tag for me.


Chanel Rebelle Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Rebelle Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a semi-opaque red-coral with a healthy shine. It has warm undertones, but they’re subtle and come from the pink-red hue, rather than orange, so it should work on both cooler and warmer complexions. Guerlain Bal de Mai is similar but more opaque, less red. MAC Hibiscus is more orange. Bobbi Brown Guava and Chanel Flamboyante are brighter.
