Yes, we are just a week into summer, and I am going to start showing you a few Fall collections here and there. Seeing as many collections, such as this one, are available in July (already!), it is timely to share now, don't you think? Seeing how beautiful this new CHANEL collection is, makes me want to showcase it now too.
Inspired by the heritage and savoir faire of the artisanal craftsmanship of the House of Chanel, Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, introduces new textures and makeup effects in a radiant Fall 2011 Collection, ILLUSIONS D’OMBRES DE CHANEL.
At the heart of this captivating colour story: Shimmering bronze, gold and platinum are the perfect complements to plum, khaki and copper shades on eyes and lips. Unique reflections of metallic green, silver and beige on nails provide the ideal counterpoint.
Philips says -
“Illusion d'Ombre is a new and exciting product, that's easy to apply.” “I would suggest finger application. The texture is unique and has a very pleasant touch.”
The star products in the new collection:
ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow - $36.00
A revolutionary silicone gel formula sets a new standard in eyeshadow with the advent of ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow. A unique mix of silicone and a patented Silicone Elastomer Gel creates a texture that is soft and cushiony, and glides on easily.
With an intense shimmer effect, eyes reveal a modern drama. A mix of pigments in varied sizes provides this enhanced light reflection. The versatility of ILLUSION D’OMBRE — it can be worn as eyeshadow or eyeliner — makes it this season’s true makeup must.
A specially designed shadow/liner brush, developed specifically for this unique formula, is included to provide an elevated level of artistry that every woman can master. ILLUSION D’OMBRE is available in six long-wearing, luminous shades, ranging from intense black to delicate peach.
