Chanel Autumn 2015 Makeup Collection

Earth, bark, moss and foliage. Muted, softened by shade, lit up by lone rays of sunlight that pierce through tree tops. Yup, the Chanel Autumn 2015 Makeup Collection is making me feel so poetic I’m quoting from the press release.

It definitely is a beautiful collection, and its one of the few times I ‘get’ the inspiration (i.e. I don’t feel a need to mock the tone of the press info) – it’s a collection of essentials (basic, wearable products if you will) that combine muted undertones and radiance; shadow and light. Aside from the expected browns and khakis, you’ll find beautiful reds, greens and splashes of ochre.

“A tribute to all of these natural shades that indulge in one last dance before settling down to sleep. Both brilliant and melancholy, the season is an invitation to a gentle sensuality.”

As always, a couple of the products really stand out to me…

I’m not going to be able to focus on anything else before I chat about the Création Exclusive Entrelacs so I reckon that’s a great place to start. Five strips of gorgeously neutral eyeshadows, embossed with a motif inspired by Cisterian stained glass windows – which, in turn, were rumoured to have inspired Mademoiselle Chanel to design the ‘double C’ Chanel emblem.

The five matte and satin shades are perfect for anything from a barely-there look to sculpted and smokey eyes. I couldn’t love it more if I tried.

Another product in the collection that stands out is Joues Contraste blush in Alezane. It’s a warm, dusky, brownish pink with gold shimmers that creates a beautifully ‘shaped’ look even with a light application. It’s intensely pigmented so if you’re on the pale side I would recommend sticking to a light dusting.

In the lip department, I’m smitten with the looks of Rouge Allure in Pensive – a darker, dirty ‘nude’ shade that looks just perfect. I’m going to pounce on a Chanel counter as soon as I can after launch date to give it a quick swatch.
