The new CHANEL Superstition Makeup Collection is in a word - beautiful. With shades of khaki, which can be worn by everyone, and matching pairs for cheeks and lips, this one has me yearning for fall and cooler weather now.
A firm believer in luck, Gabrielle Chanel surrounded herself with her favorite charms and talismans, as much for good fortune as for inspiration. The symbols that warded off superstitious fears now serve as silent muses for an enchanting Fall makeup collection. Sumptuous khaki tones are set off by new ‘lucky charm’ duos: entrancing, shade-matched pairs for cheeks and lips.
I love makeup shades that match, and pairing up cheek and lip colors are genius, especially when you want everyone to look at your eyes. Trust me, with these shades, that is where you want the focus to be, because the quad and shadows (Gri-Gri!) are intoxicating. I can't get enough. I think the pairs provide the perfect balance and help those that have problems when selecting coordinating colors, especially when going for a bolder lip and eye.
LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow - $59.00
The metallic and khaki shades in this palette are captivating. Like I mentioned above, you want the eyes to take center stage when using a palette like this. The colors are so incredibly beautiful, no matter how you wear them.
- Mystere - Golden Khaki, Golden Ivory, Silver Taupe, Matte Khaki
I have been wearing Golden Ivory on my brow bone, Silver Taupe all over my lid with Golden Khaki in the outer crease. Matte Khaki is perfect as a complementary liner.
OMBRE ESSENTIELLE Soft Touch Eyeshadow - $28.50
Eyes are beautiful with these chic powder shadows in soft lavender and luminous taupe. Gri-Gri is going to be one of my all time favorites, I already know. The shimmering taupe shade reflects the light so beautifully. Pair the shades together for a soft, shimmering neutral fall eye.
- Gri-Gri - Metallic Taupe
- Hasard - Matte Lavender
LE BLUSH CRÈME DE CHANEL Cream Blush - $38.00
This innovative blush features a powder-cream formula made up of sheer, yet vibrant pigments. The silky texture offers a longwear satin finish that can be applied with fingertips or a brush.

- Presage - Apricot
- Revelation - Soft-shimmering Pink
- Inspiration - Soft Blue Pink
- Affinite - Intense Blue Pink
- Fantastic - Burgundy
STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF Long-Lasting Eyeliner - $30.00
This smudge-proof bronze khaki eye pencil looks beautiful with the quad as well. It offers a slight bit of metallic to it, but nothing too overpowering. I love how it lasts all day with no smudging.
- Khaki Precieux - Khaki with Bronze Tint
LE VOLUME DE CHANEL Mascara - $30.00
Lashes go bold while finishing the khaki look with this bronzed shade of khaki. I like using it with the liner, but over a base of black.
