Chantecaille Les Pétales Collection for Holiday 2009

For the holidays, Sylvie and Olivia have created three beautiful and unique products encased in small compacts, delicately etched with Chantecaille’s signature rose in a rose-gold metallic finish. The collection includes a sheer pressed powder, a luminous highlighter and a rose lip gloss.

Voile de Rose Poudre Délicate ($36.00)

Luxurious and velvety smooth, this innovative, super-lightweight formula glides on effortlessly to create a smooth, long-adhering invisible finish. Smooth, soft and unnoticeable, this powder embossed with the Chantecaille Rose gives an unprecedented natural and radiant look. Perfect for an evening touch up. Intensely hydrating and never drying due to PCA treated spherical powder. Micronized and elastic coated pigments assure all-day wear and optimal blendability. This distinctive roe-gold compact contains a mirror and a small, ultra-soft puff with a delicate white satin top.

Rêve de Rose Lip Gloss SPF 15 ($36.00)

A soothing and intensely hydrating lip gloss that nurtures lips all day long. This light but supremely moisturizing formula is packed with Aloe and Chamomile to calm, Vitamin E and Rice bran to hydrate and protect and Ceramides and Ginko Biloba to condition and rebuild. Also includes SPF 15. Reve de Rose comes in a beautiful and elegant universally flattering rich rose color with a touch of shimmer- ideal for day or in your evening clutch.

Lumière de Rose Face Highlighter ($36.00)

Introducing a new and innovative formula with a unique mix of pigment and pearl for the most flattering and gentle metallic pearl effect. Perfectly coated micronized pigments impart a creamy and soft touch and provide perfect adherence for all day wear. Triglycerides impart high emollience and will never make skin feel dry. This mini touch of light is beautiful on cheeks and eyelids anytime.

Chanel Jade Le Vernis

Chanel Jade Nail Collection

Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, created the Jade Nail Collection with two limited edition nail enamels in sure-to-be-coveted colors “Jade” and “Jade Rose” for the Ready-to-Wear Autumn/Winter 2009-2010 runway show. These mineral-inspired shades transform the nails into genuine gems and recall the jade jewelry and the pink knit and pistachio tweed of the fashion collection.

“For the nails, Karl wanted a green shade to evoke the jade notes of the collection. I worked with our laboratories to offer him a monochromatic palette of 10 green shades. We chose the color that most resembled the green tweed skirt suit from the collection,” explains Peter Philips.

Availability:  The CHANEL Jade Nail Collection debuts on September 10th at the CHANEL Soho Boutique in New York City in celebration of Vogue’s Fashion Night Out. Starting the 11th of September, The Jade Nail Collection will be sold for limited time exclusively at www.chanel.com, CHANEL Makeup Studios and CHANEL boutiques for $25.00.
