Chanel Cassis Eyeliner (Waterproof)

Chanel Cassis Eyeliner ($28.00 for 0.01 oz.) is a smoked plum with subtle red undertones in Chanel’s long-wearing, waterproof liner formula. It really is a lovely color, and it applies evenly with good pigmentation. There’s also a built-in sharpener, and I love that you can twist the eyeliner up and down (sometimes it only goes up!).

Chanel Paradoxal Nail Lacquer

Chanel Paradoxal Nail Lacquer ($23.00) is a stunning shade of grayed plum with red and violet microshimmer.  It applied beautifully–one of the best Chanel lacquers in terms of formula I’ve tried–and only needed two coats for complete opaqueness.   The nuances of this shade are best captured in direct sunlight, but it’s smoky and sultry in indirect/natural lighting, too.   Very, very beautiful and sophisticated.

Chanel Taupe Gris Eyeshadow (Fall 2010)

In addition to Vert Khaki, Chanel will launch Taupe Gris ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) with their fall collection. The name is completely spot-on–it’s a grayed taupe brown with a soft sheen. It has the same silky smooth texture of Chanel’s single eyeshadows, and while the pigmentation is there, it’s not quite as rich as Vert Khaki’s. Fans of shades like MAC Smoke & Diamonds and Stila’s Lil’ Diamond may want to consider adding this smoky taupe shade to their collection.

Chanel Glossimers Lipgloss (Fall 2010)

For fall, Chanel released four new Glossimer shades ($27.00 for 0.19 oz.), but they’re oh-so-perfect for summer–so thank goodness they’re available come July! (Some readers are reporting their local counters have the collection in already, too.)
