This Winter collection by Chanel is definitely unexpected! The combination of colours, lights and textures offers freshness and simple elegance.
In creating this collection, Lucia Pica draws inspiration from cityscapes and urban materials like glass, metal and rubber.
The result is a game of contrasts.

Chanel Joues Contraste in 360 Hyperfresh (€41,00/ 6g) | I’ve never seen a blush in such a bold shade!
It’s almost neon and so pigmented that I need to be careful when using it.
The texture bears the brand’s signature rose fragrance which disappears immediately after application.
It’s very light and velvety on the skin, it’s easy to work with and contains the slightest gold shimmer which makes the shade a touch warmer thus wearable by a broad range of skin tones.
It offers a fresh and flawless finish and has a staying power of 8+ hours.
Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss in 137 Super Nude (€35,00/ 6ml) | A very comfortable Gloss with a thick formula which is just a little bit sticky.
It’s that kind of nude with a great balance of warm and cold undertones and so very wearable for a lot of skin tones.
It’s hydrating with a staying power of 3+ hours without eating/ and or drinking.
Rouge Allure in 247 Ultraberry (€35,00/ 3.5g) | I’m currently wearing this lipstick every day!
A great formula, creamy, comfortable and hydrating with a slightly matte finish.
It has a staying power of 6+ hours leaving the lips stylishly stained after fading.
This lipstick is the best from everything I’ve tried so far!
Chanel Le Vernis Velvet in 542 Pink Rubber (€25,00/ 13ml) | Such an original formula!
The pale pink hue (which could seem at first a bit boring) is definitely redefined because of the rubbery finish.
It really looks like rubber!
I’m not a fan of matte nails, however this finish is so different; the manicure looks so sexy, the nails definitely make the best accessory when covered with Pink Rubber.
The formula has a thin density and it’s completely opaque only in two coats.
It dries super fast, it has a staying power of 4-5 days and looks beautiful with a glossy top coat on.
This cool pink looks surprisingly good during this period and I think it will also look gorgeous during summer when the skin is tanned.
Definitely my favourite pink polish!
Chanel Le Vernis Longwear in 540 Liquid Mirror (€25,00/ 13ml) | A beautiful silver metallic!
The formula is very pigmented and the steel undertones look fabulous however it’s difficult to apply and the brush strokes are very visible.
Some of them tend to level up after drying, however most of them remain visible.
It’s opaque in two coats and dries very fast with a staying power of 4-5 days.
