Behold: New Things By Chanel

You may have noticed that Chanel gets a lot of airtime around these quarters, though I feel my reverence for their make-up is well-deserved and my lavish praise is therefore the result of true excitement this end. Prepare for more: their latest drop is bloody gorgeous and I make no apology for the gushing that’s about to happen on my top picks from the new wave of Chanel //

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Duo No 2 review

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Duo No 2 swatch

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour Duo No 2 / I’ll start on the highest of high notes with this instant youth in a pan blush/highlighter duo. Buy it and put it straight in your handbag where it’ll serve you best – whizz the (good quality) brush over the blush and stroke over the apples of cheeks to infuse with life, then take the same brush and dust the finely-milled highlighter over the high points of your face.

Chanel Les Vernis

Chanel Le Vernis in Cavaliere / Clever clogs Chanel: this deep brown has teeny tiny bits of gold shimmer in the formula to push a little summer into this polish. Ideal if ‘happy summer shades’ don’t do it for you. This is the new formula, too so expect this kind of result. N.B. This is a limited edition polish so chop chop if you like it.

Chanel Quadra Desert Review

Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Empreinte Du Desert / Snap this up if you’re eyeshadow shy or think you’re rubbish at applying the stuff – these shadows are smooth and easy to blend, the colours universally-flattering and the finish just a touch iridescent (much easier to blend, folks). Try using just two of the shades and whisking them together on your lid – I especially like the green mixed with the deepest bronze. Pair with mascara and a lick of colour on your lips for easy polish.

Chanel S/S 16 Make-Up

Chanel Levres Scintillantes Aqua Glossimer in 606 / Like your lips on the juicy side and enjoy a flirt with red? You’re going to love this number – it starts as a non-sticky sheer cherry wash and builds to a brighter, glossier finish. It’ll never hit that dense red note though, so if you want it bold, slick a bit of your usual red underneath then build the gloss on top.

Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Sable / Alone, this does nothing for my eyes. Whizzed on top of a bit of black liner, though, and it’s genius – eye-opening and illuminating, with a decent whack of warmth to compliment/make the most of a tan. Use an oil-based eye make-up remover to whip it off – I find it won’t budge otherwise.

Chanel Le Volumen Waterproof Mascara Review

Le Volume De Chanel Waterproof Mascara in Mirage / I had one reservation about the new Le Volume formula that launched last year – when applied to lower lashes it sometimes bled a little onto my skin over the course of the day. No such woes with this waterproof version. The deep brown shade is a winner for summer days if you’re down the paler end of the spectrum and want to keep things looking natural.

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Complete Care Lipshine

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Complete Care Lipshine

Chanel Rouge Coco Stylo Complete Care Lipshine in l to r Recit, Histoire and Script / Lovely, lovely lipsticks these are. No, they won’t hang around all day or stain your lips – but that’s kind of the beauty of them. They’re old school: beautiful, richly-pigmented, glossy sticks of colour in a good variety of shades that you’ll want to whip out of your handbag every hour or so for a little top up. Clever packaging too – you can twist the end to lengthen the lipstick and twist it down again. Other make-up brands: cotton on, please.
