SS09: Chanel’s Sophisticated Bohemian Fantasy Spring Makeup Collection

By | January 12 2009 | 15 Comments


One of the most notable things about all the new season collections are the amount of deep, autumnal shades, which tips us the nod that goth-glam is here to stay – well, for another season at least. Unusual for spring summer, yes, but this is fashion, and sure we’re well used to its vagaries.

Chanel’s new products are a case in point. Sophisticated and elegant as you’d expect, they’re also very wearable.  Put January 19th in your diary and start saving for the subtle smokey shades that are the order of the day in the Mystic Eyes shadow quad, €44.50. There’s also a great new nail colour, Le Vernis  in Vendetta, above. Great name! €21 is the damage here, and you’ll also be able to pick up Django, a pale pink. There are a host of other new products and shades on-counter like creamy Rouge Hydrabase lipsticks, €25, in six colours, as well as gloss, blush and eye pencil.

But we haven’t shown you the star of the show yet – check after the cut for the exclusive creation.

Like it? It’s Lévres Signées Chanel and it’s a limited edition collectors palette of satin lip creme shades that form the iconic double C. Fancy! And a fancy price at €51, but a must-have for fans, I’d wager.

    Lovin that eye shadow quad! But just got a mac palette christmas eve so don’t think I can justify it atm :(

  • MontyC says:

    The colours are absolutely gorgeous!

  • Hannah says:

    Does this remind anyone else of that Robert Palmer video – ‘Addicted to Love’? Very 80s power dressing/Dynasty-style make-up.

  • sweetie says:

    xgirl, totaly agree – nail polish is oh so fabulous :)

    I like the lip palette as well, but it looks like there’s only a tiny bit of the product in there – doubt all of them together will add up to the size of a regular lippie!!

  • Admin says:

    Hannah – yes! haha! Well spotted!

  • LouLaBelles says:

    Love Chanel make up! the price is always so reasonable for what you get compared to other brands in BT’s.

  • Aphrodite says:

    LOVE the lip pallete but agree – it’s far too gorgeous to use and theres not much in there – but lets be honest, the only reason you’d buy it is so you could pull it out of your bag and go “Look at this!” to everyone

  • tina says:

    I want that nail polish! I love Chanel nail polishes, they’re the best ever.

  • laineyg says:

    The Vendetta sold out in seconds in the states I’m sure I read somewhere, so if it comes in I wouldn’t hesitate if you want it, just purchase it!

  • Chica says:

    I love Chanel shadows, definitely up there with Urban Decay and MAC for me so I’ll probably be getting this one.
    The lip palette is cute but as everyone has said, not much there really is there?

  • Dobby says:

    Ha Hannah that’s what I thought too! The quad does look lovely though. Love the nail polish too. Argh why am I a poor student?! :-(

  • Hannah says:

    Thought it was just me…showing my age.

  • Zoulikha says:

    I will be getting the nail polish but prefer Mac eyeshadows. You a lot more for your money with Mac. And they are the only ones that don’t end up in crease for me.

    i had the lip creme set from last summer – the one that looked like four roses but i lost it – don’t know where!! boo! this is a real collector – look at this alright, like the dior limited edition bits and pieces that come out every year.
