Les Expressions de Chanel & Le Volume de Chanel


One new collection for holiday and a new mascara from Chanel are available now at Chanel makeup counters. I’m going to get my Illusion d’Ombre in Vision (gold) today – I’ve been waiting all year for it to come out!


Elegance is elevated to the extreme with new LE VOLUME DE CHANEL Mascara, a high-precision mascara that achieves instant volume with intense colour. In a single stroke, its innovative formula expands and plumps lashes to their fullest. Carbon black pigments deliver lush colour that adheres to lashes, while Camelia Oil nourishes, protects and moisturizes. New Chanel exclusive ‘Snowflakes’ brush articulates each lash; long bristles evenly coat lashes while small soft bristles separate and build volume, creating an eye-opening effect. The result: A modern lash look for drama that makes a bold yet elegant statement.


Eyes speak volumes with elegant eyeshadow harmonies that accentuate the dramatic new lash look of LE VOLUME DE CHANEL Mascara.

The essential eyeshadow compact with countless options, LES 4 OMBRES Quadra Eye Shadow introduces new shade harmonies with complementary colour. The intense shimmer of ILLUSION D’OMBRE Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow debuts dramatic new hues, to highlight eyes with beautiful contrast and bold glow.

New LIGNE GRAPHIQUE DE CHANEL Liquid Eyeliner Intensity – Definition delivers precise lining and definition with extreme shine. The liquid liner formula features innovative polymers for deep colour and long-lasting wear. Delicate bristle design lets you flawlessly draw dramatic definition. In a range of three intense shades.

Peter Philips Interview from Metro

Metro sat down to chat with Peter Philips about the Chanel Spring-Summer 2012 beauty collection he created. Here are his thoughts as reprinted from Metro:

The inspiration behind his spring 2012 collection: “I chose spring horizons [at] sunset and sunrise, as it can be the most amazing moment of the day. I was afraid it would be a bit kitschy, mellow and corny but it’s also very beautiful. You can do anything you want with the products in the collection, whether you want to look sophisticated and intense or fresh and funky.”

Introducing the latest Le Vernis nail trilogy:
April, May and June:  “The most classical shade and the first to be released is April. Spring is coming, but you’re still in a wintry mood, so you want a darker shade that’s flattering and not too flashy. May is pink-y and girlie, and June has a beach-y feel to it. People will have gotten a bit of sun and color on their skin and can start wearing brighter colors. … The shades are anticipated not because of me, but because they’re Chanel. I have the advantage that I can link my creations with the fashion show — it gives them a reason to exist.”

His love of sparkles: “I don’t have a favorite color, I adore makeup in general. I love a good skin-tone beige and anything sparkly and dramatic.”

Philips’ Top 3 tips:

Invest in an eyelash curler: “All women should have an eyelash curler. This also applies to women who don’t wear makeup. It’s not a dangerous tool, although a lot of people are terrified of it. One pinch to the lashes can work miracles as it opens up your eyes and makes you look fresh and awake. Add some mascara, and you’re ready to go.”

Apply just the right amount:
“It’s a criminal offense to wear too much makeup, just as it is to wear too little. It’s all about striking a balance and wearing a look with confidence. Something that always looks wrong is not blending your foundation in so that you can see the line between the face and the neck. It’s so easy to avoid: Blend it out with your fingers and check the lighting in your bathroom.”

Remember, makeup can’t fix everything: “Every phase of your life has beauty in it. We all want youth, but at some point we have to realize that we’re getting older and it’s not all about foundation or mascara. If you eat and live wrong, it will have an impact on your looks. You know the tricks:?Eat more vegetables, stop smoking, drink water and cut back on alcohol.”

On color
: “It took 24 tries in the lab before we got the right shade for Le Vernis in June. I wanted it to be the color of this plastic bag handle I got from some random shop in the States. The bag was black and the handle was this beautiful orange plastic. It had to be that exact shade, but in lacquer. It had to look just like the plastic, not transparent or pearly.”

Chanel “Les Harmonies de Printemps” Spring 2012 Makeup Collection Swatches

Chanel Les harmonies de printemps spring 2012 makeup collection

Back in November I posted about the Chanel “Les Harmonies de Printemps” Spring 2012 Makeup Collection.  Last week I received more info from Chanel about the collection as well as the Swatches.

From the break of dawn to the descent of twilight, skies reveal an enchanting array of hues with the arrival of Spring. Inspired by this brilliant seasonal change, Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, infused glowing, sunlit colour into the Spring 2012 Makeup Collection, HARMONIE DE PRINTEMPS. Subtle gradations of rose, coral and peach sculpt the face, giving it a soft radiance, while rich garnets and vivid pinks dress the lips.
In one elegant compact, five pink and peach tones mimic the luminous hues of sunset. This unique powder blush lends itself to multiple effects: blended together, the harmony is ideal for sculpting and accentuating the natural contours of the face. Using just the pink shades creates a fresh, youthful flush, while on their own, the peach tones produce a warm, sun-bronzed glow. $58.00 Limited Edition

The Chanel “Les Harmonies de Printemps” Spring 2012 Makeup Collection is available for sale online now in the U.S. – get those limited edition nail colours before they sell out!
