Chanel Venice Collection for Fall 2009

As a city built on water, Venice was a source of great intrigue for Gabrielle Chanel. She saw it as simultaneously dramatic and fragile – qualities she herself possessed. With the imagination of the CHANEL Makeup Studio, Venice comes to life in a palette reflective of the city’s shimmering facades and mosaics, and the sparkling aquatic colours of its lagoons. As seen in the runway looks created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, at the 2009/10 Cruise Collection show, held on the beaches of Venice, Italy, rich sienna and deep rose tones, and dusky greys and greens combine for a modern look that can be softened for day or emboldened come evening.

    Wow the tweed blush looks like the real thing..very cool

    Hi Christine. Everything is gorgeous. I am very excited for this collection. Can’t wait to see swatches and review from you!

  3. Wow I’m in love with the purple from the quad!

  4. cloudburst

    I’m all over the eye gloss quad! Actually the gold & pearl colours look exactly like a creme highlighter duo they put out years & years ago. This is the first Chanel launch I’ve been excited for in a long while!

  5. kirsty

    The tweed blush looks rather interesting!

  6. Is it just me that can’t see it or is there no picture of the eyeshadow quad? Loving the Tweed Blush and the Glossimers, they will be mine! *evil laugh* :)

    I was excited for the eye gloss quad but after seeing it at bloomies I had to pass on it. Black and red shadow(I wish it was more of the plummy shade like the promo pic instead of being a vamp red color) just doesn’t work for me.

    I did like the Murano quad although I’m a sucker for light greens/pinks.

  8. Redhead (hi)

    The Tweed blush looks cool ‘n’ funky! The hot pink gloss caught my eye, as well as the darker colors in the quad. I have too many neutrals, though, so I don’t think that will justify buying it.

    It’s dark red, Jenn? Wow, I am SO not getting that quad!

  9. shontay

    I bought the gold glossimer a few weeks ago. It’s AMAZING. Gold never really worked on me before, but this is gorgeous. I want the tweed blush also. I need to own at least one.

  10. very pretty and upbeat!

  11. Oooh, the tweed blush look very pretty!

  12. Teresa

    I am in LOVE with the purple from the first pic. Must find a dupe!
    (Anyone know of any? Please let me know 😀 )

    I heard that the these Chanel eye glosses give you a nice runway gloss finish, can’t wait to see what that really looks like! I always wanted to know how to achieve that eye gloss finish without putting a sticky ophthalmologic safe lipgloss or vaseline-like product on my lid. If only I had more money to spend, I’d shack up on Chanel products!

    is the fresque blush anything close to candy? :)
