As I was catching up on my WWD beauty reading, I spotted this fantastic fall heads up!

The collection, due on counter in July, includes Gold Fiction, a softly shimmering nail polish, $30; Facettes D’Or, a finely milled gold loose powder that reads on the skin as a subtle glow, $56; Gold Light Glossimer lip gloss, $26; Rouge Hydrabase lipstick shades in copper, plum and coral, each $27, and a quad eye shadow palette with gold, coffee, ivory and dark green eye colors, $56.

That said, Dagousset believes that Gold Fiction will follow in the footsteps of Vamp, Black Satin and other best-selling Chanel nail polishes. “I think it will be huge,” said Dagousset. “It’s a soft honey gold, not a sparkling bright gold. It’s very wearable and very modern.” Another gold-hued nail shade expected to do well is Kaleidoscope, a shiny green gold, she said.

As well, Chanel will reprise — and amplify — gold in its holiday color collection, due out in October, with Poudre Precieuse Or, a gold highlighting powder that will retail for $75; Gold Shine, a gold Glossimer lip shade, $26; Noir Scintillant, a black eyeliner with gold sparkle, $28, and Haute Chocolate, a gold brown nail shade, $20.

You know what that means, right? I’m totally screwed.  Golds and me are like chocolate and milk.

    Ha, ha I love your last comment. Have you ever tried the YSL Golden Gloss w/ the real gold leaf in it? It’s very nice…

    The YSL golden gloss dried my lips out :(

    I hope this new gold glossimer actually shows up on me, Sunset Gold was a huge disappointment…it looked like nothing on me :(

    I LUV new Chanel products! I am always aware of what is going on with them…heehee. The little trio of polishes that includes the original Vamp is really exciting me too…

    Shiny green gold polish? Maybe this will make me feel better that I never got my hands on NARS Zulu. A gold Glossimer? OMG…I’m dead. Those are going to be my splurges in the fall FO SHEEZY! But wait…I still haven’t made my summer hauls yet!!

    Haha, that’s the first thing I thought when I saw the pictures before I even read your comment: “uh oh, Christine is going to love these!” :-)

    I’ll try the gold Glossimer – looks interesting.

  7. I don’t like this tone of gold lot, but I have to agree, they are like specially made for Fall.Chanel never goes out of trends.
