Chanel Prelude Eyeshadow Quad

Chanel Prelude Eyeshadow Quad ($57.00 for 0.24 oz.) contains four cool-toned shades for fall. According to Chanel’s fall press release, this is new and being added to the permanent range.  This is a lovely mix of colors that complement each other and will work together in numerous variations for soft, neutral looks to heavier, smokier looks.  The finishes are all slightly pearled or shimmery but not too shimmered or frosted.

Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick

Chanel Etole Rouge Coco Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark berry red with a hint of plum. When worn, it is dark without being overwhelmingly so; it’s a softened dark, if that makes any sense! There is a hint of shine, and the lip color really seems to melt into the natural lip and ends up looking rather natural. It’s a very fitting shade for fall, and I think it is incredibly easy to wear, particularly for thsoe who tend to stay away from darker lip colors. This is dark without being dominating.

Chanel Fall 2011 Makeup Collection

Inspired by the heritage and savoir faire of the artisanal craftsmanship of the House of Chanel, Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, introduces new textures and makeup effects in a radiant Fall 2011 Collection, ILLUSIONS D’OMBRES DE CHANEL. At the heart of this captivating colour story: Shimmering bronze, gold and platinum are the perfect complements to plum, khaki and copper shades on eyes and lips. Unique reflections of metallic green, silver and beige on nails provide the ideal counterpoint.

Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow ($36.00)

A revolutionary silicone gel formula sets a new standard in eyeshadow with the advent of ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow. A unique mix of silicone and a patented Silicone Elastomer Gel creates a texture that is soft and cushiony, and glides on easily. With an intense shimmer effect, eyes reveal a modern drama. A mix of pigments in varied sizes provides this enhanced light reflection. The versatility of ILLUSION D’OMBRE — it can be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner — makes it this season’s true makeup must. A specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula, is included to provide an elevated level of artistry that every woman can master.

Chanel Liberte Rouge Coco Shine

Chanel Liberte (44) Rouge Coco Shine ($32.00 for 0.10 oz.) looks like it’ll be a brighter coral-red from the tube, but when swatched and applied, it’s a much softer color with only a hint of coral.  It’s a very played down mix of peach and pink.  It gives semi-opaque color coverage, but it seemed a little patchy compared to some of the other Rouge Coco Shines I’ve tried.    Rouge Coco Shines are supposed to deliver softer, sheerer color, so I would not expect full color coverage with this formula (consider Rouge Cocos or Rouge Allures for more color payoff).
