For fall, CHANEL has created a collection that weaves through color like poetry; it is soft yet intense. It is called Collection États Poétiques and it really does play upon the opposites with color - from bright yellows and shocking pinks to the softest shades of golden barely there pink and beige. The collection really does run the spectrum and has something for everyone. I am most excited about the redesigned eyeliner pen that I am really loving (more on that below).
Collection États Poétiques star products:

Normally I shy away from liquid liners, but I decided it was high time I get used to using them. I figured if my daughter can draw on a perfect cat eye, I can too. The CHANEL Automatic Liquid Eyeliner makes it easy. I love the felt tip. It is stiff, yet a bit flexible to lay just the right amount of liner across my lid. I can get right into my lash line with this liner with ease. I have been using Brun, a dark brown shade and I am thrilled with the results. It really is much easier to use than I thought.
A lippie lover, I am a big fan of the Hydrating Sheer Lipstick in Intime, a pretty sheer soft pink. I am topping that off with Glossimer in Songe, which is a barely there iridescent pearl gloss that gives a nice shine and pretty finish.
