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