A new romantic beauty reveals itself this holiday season amidst a wealth of gently shimmering shades. Eyes are positively heart-melting, accented with soft, warm tones of chocolate brown and beige, while lips glisten with a dark glimmering richness. Keeping it all in balance: a subtle, natural, candlelit glow on cheeks. The effect is nothing less than enchanting.

Get details!

Season highlight: Poudre Précieuse or Gold Highlighting Powder with Brush

The gold rush continues this holiday season with a loose powder as light, airy and shimmery as fairy dust. Beautifully sheer, luxuriously luminous, the soft, sparkling powder creates a golden veil to delicately adorn the face, décolleté, arms, even sandaled feet – anywhere a lightly gilded look is desired. An innovative half-moon brush ensures precise application and a perfect dusting of colour.

This holiday season is all about the look of shimmering, just-kissed lips. Define the mouth with LE CRAYON LÈVRES Precision Lip Definer in Rouge, a true red. ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Satin Lip Colour arrives in Nude, a pale nude; limited-edition Exaltation, a coral red; Ardent, a rosewood shade; and Audace, a true red. The palette continues with AQUALUMIÈRE Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF 15 in limited-edition Cancun, a soft beige. For the brush-on precision of a gloss with the comfortable finish of a lipstick, try CRÈME GLOSS LUMIÈRE Brush-On Creme Lip Colour in limited-edition Praline Rose, a pink bronze, or Canelé, a warm bronze. Lips glimmer with LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES Glossimer in Red Shine and limited-edition Gold Shine.

Create a subtle or more dramatic look with LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow in limited-edition Beiges de CHANEL, a range of soft-to-deep shades of cream, taupe, gold, and brown. Highlight the eyes with the pure, liquid shine of OMBRE D’EAU Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in limited-edition Riviera, a pale gold. Eyes sparkle with LE CRAYON YEUX Precision Eye Definer in limited-edition Noir Scintillant, a soft black with gold shimmer. Finally, create the look of a professionally lined eye with LA LIGNE DE CHANEL Professional Eyeliner Duo in limited-edition Brun-Lamé, a combination of dark brown and soft brown sparkle.

For a final touch of colour, LE VERNIS Nail Colour offers two new limited-edition shades: Perle Rosée,
a warm beige-pink, and Haute Chocolat, a chic chocolate gold.

Highlight the skin this holiday with the new ÉCLAT LUMIÈRE Highlighter Face Pen in Beige Rosé, an enchanting shade with a pink undertone.
