Few things excite me as much as the seasonal Chanel makeup collections. It’s a whole ritual for me – receiving the press release, gawking at the images, setting up an appointment, viewing the range and then selecting some samples to feature.
The latest collection is Autumn 2014. While it hits our shores just as winter draws to an end, this is one of the collections with trend items that will continue being trendy for a couple of seasons to come. The collection is described as being a combination of tenderness and passion, with focus on pink and purple accents.
My favourite makeup item from Chanel is their eyeshadow quads, but this time round I skipped the Poésie quad because (a) I own one that’s quite similar and (b) I wanted to dip my toes in the tenderness/passion that the collection is about, and the quad is more on the neutral side. I’ll showcase the items I have in a separate post, for now here’s a list of the products available and their prices.
