Breaking Beauty: Chanel’s Spring ’15 Collection

A weekly look at what’s new on the beauty director’s desk

Carlene-smallChanel’s press kits are always…well, beyond. Check out these dreamy dioramas. They came tucked into the hardcover book, and folded out into these mini Parisian fantasy-scapes. I immediately wanted to take out the sexy lipsticks and nail polishes and play with them like they were dolls in a miniature makeup dollhouse. My favourites are the Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in La Romanesque (a GORGEOUS berry with a hint of fuchsia, because I’m not really feeling straight fuchsia for spring and because matte is everything); the Le Vernis Nail Colour in Paradisio (a very, very pale mint green and the only shimmery polish I’d ever actually try right now); and Le Vernis Nail Colour in Tenderly (the most sophisticated greyish-purple.) Available Jan. 5, 2015 at Chanel counters.
