Chanel’s Fall 2016 beauty collection – Le Rouge Collection N°1 – is all about the colour red. “Red is intense. It is vulnerable, sexual and eternal”, says Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer. “When you think of the colour red, you usually think of love and desire, innocence & experience, life and death”. While the classic colour has firm roots in the lip and nail realm, we are not used to seeing it near the eyes, so this collection is sure to peak some serious interest!
To further enhance the eyes, the Rouge N°1 Collection also includes a few eye liners and a burgundy tinged mascara. The Style Yeux Waterproof Pencils ($35 CAD) come in #928 Eros (not shown) & #929 Agape (pictured below and swatched above) and Chanel’s iconic Dimensions de Chanel Mascara ($41 CAD) is also available in #40 Subversif.
There are two Rouge Allure lipsticks ($43 CAD) in the collection: #168 Rouge Ingenue (not shown) & #169 Rouge Tentation (not shown) as well as four Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks in #56 Rouge Charnel (not shown), #57 Rouge Feu (not shown), #58 Rouge Vie (pictured below and swatched above) & #59 Rouge Audace (not shown).
For the nails, Chanel’s Le Vernis #528 Rouge Puissant ($32 CAD) – a classic candy apple red – is all you need to complete the inspiring Fall beauty look seen in the promo photo. To enhance the red polish and add mega shine, Chanel introduces Le Vernis Gloss in #530 Rouge Radical a high-shine orangey-red nail gloss meant to be worn as a top coat.
