Beauty News – A Sneak Peek At Chanel Autumn Beauty

In case you didn’t know I have a bit of a thing for Chanel makeup – mostly the nail varnishes – who could resist a treat in black packaging with those entwined Cs? So I was thrilled to see a preview of what is to come for this autumn. I had already been tipped off by the gorgeous young man on my local Chanel counter about one of the nail varnishes which he described as a dark brown/black with red shimmer. Sounds a little weird but as two of my favourite Chanel varnishes are Black Pearl which changes from teal to dark green as it catches the light and Paradoxal which goes from taupe to mauve I am excited to see this new one.

Anyway here’s a first look at Chanel’s Les Essentiels De Chanel Autumn/Winter 2012 Makeup Collection, and how gorgeous is this look:

Lumière d’Artifices Beiges – Limited Edition – Two shades of beige, infused with fine golden sparkles to highlight and define a radiant complexion that looks natural in the sun or glowing in evening lighting.


Ombre Essentielle – Eye shadow singles


Rouge Coco and Rouge Coco Shine for the lips

And finally – last but not least the fabulous nail colours; Vertigo, Suspicious and Frenzy

The new range will be available from the end of August and guess who will be there purchasing Vertigo to add to her capsule wardrobe of varnishes?

What do you think are you tempted?

    What I love about Chanel varnishes, apart from the stunning colours, is that they last so well. Mind you this gives me another problem as I feel bad taking polish off when it’s still looking so good. Suspicious gets a vote from me even though I don’t suit reds and pinks [I still lust after them though] but Vertigo definitely has the WOW factor. Well done Chanel.
