Chanel Summer 2009 Makeup Collection
From elegant monte carlo to the seaside of Deauville, Mademoiselle Chanel’s favorite resort destinations are re-imagined in the Chanel Summer 2009 Makeup Collection. Cool corals, sun-soaked reds, sandy-pink beiges, lush peaches and shimmering coppers with a touch of rose define this summer’s vibrant beauty.
Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Powder (Limited Edition)
A quartet of complementary shades – bronze, copper, pink and pale beige — delivers a subtle, natural glow.
Soleil Tan de Chanel Precious Bronzing Loose Powder (Limited Edition)
Lightweight powder formula gives skin a naturally beautiful, sun-kissed look.
Soleil Tan de Chanel Bronzing Makeup Base
Light cream-gel bronzing formula allows you to smooth on the perfect shade of tan, while the velvety finish leaves your skin glowing.
Accent warm bronzed skin with juicy berry tones and gleaming sheer shades using AQUALUMIÈRE Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF 15 in Ischia (rose violet), Lipari (strawberry), Porto Rotondo (red), Salina (beige), Panarea (brown) and Monte-Carlo (red coral) — or AQUALUMIÈRE GLOSS in Cherry Blossom (cerise), Tangerine Dream (coral) and Ginger Shimmer (copper gold). Saturate lips in long-lasting colour with ROUGE DOUBLE INTENSITÉ Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Rose Agate (pink-brown).
Discreetly highlighting summer’s best-dressed eyes: four pyramids of shimmering colour with eye-catching, three-dimensional effects. Each shade in LUMIÈRE FACETTES Iridescent Effects Eyes In Plein Soleil can be worn individually, in complementary pairs, or in striking contrast. Or, for a long-lasting iridescent finish, adorn lids with OMBRE D’EAU Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Seashore (copper rose).
Add a flush of warmth to cheeks with JOUES CONTRASTE Powder Blush in In Love (coral).
Drench nails in exuberant accents of the summer season with LE VERNIS Nail Colour in Orange Fizz (coral) and Golden Sand (copper).
Availability: April 2009 on-counter. Currently available on Chanel’s website — just go to individual product categories and you’ll find the new shades!
