I’m overjoyed and so very excited to share with you images of CHANEL’s Fall 2016 LE ROUGE COLLECTION N°1. Radiant and glamourous ‘RED IS THE COLOUR OF LIFE, OF BLOOD, I LOVE RED.’ GABRIELLE CHANEL
The collection is flawless and the formulation and packaging is perfection. Each palette comes in a velour pouch for protection and a beautiful mirror. Very elegant and classy! The colours of fall are so stunning in this collection and not only does this incorporate Lucia Pica’s inspiration it also has seasonal warmth and coziness in my opinion. It resembles nature and the colour changes that happen in Autumn. A truly beautiful and stellar collection.
‘IN THE COLLECTION THERE ARE IDEAS OF SUBVERSION AND CLASSICISM. IT IS ABOUT THE POWER OF FEMININITY, BUT ALSO VULNERABILITY. RED IS INTENSE, VULNERABLE, SEXUAL AND ETERNAL.’ LUCIA PICA
On the left t is the most beautiful rose blush that is lightly rose scented. Joues Contraste ‘320 Rouge Profond’ is exquisite and most ravishing rose colour that I’ve ever seen. It brightens up the complexion and gives a flushed healthy look.

The eyeshadow palette Les 4 Ombres ‘238 Candeur et Expérience’ has really beautiful warm tones that can be worn lightly or dramatically as one wishes. Perfect for day or evening. Pigmentation is perfect and classic just like the entire collection. I adore the colours because they remind me of Autumnal Canadian leaves. This is the palette that you definitely need to have . I adore the warmth and beauty of ‘238 Candeur et Expérience’.
Here I have two most beautiful eyeshadows that have the loveliest texture ever. I adore the colours and feel they bring so much beauty and depth to the collection. These are the Illusion d’Ombre Velvet ‘132 Rouge Contraste’ and Illusion d’Ombre ‘128 Rouge Brûlé’.
I adore the formula and pigmentation. The bouncy feel to the eyeshadows are so amazing and the application is perfection. They go on perfectly and evenly and I love that they can be applied over the other eyeshadow palette colours as well. My favourite is the ‘128 Rouge Brule’ of course because I’m a huge fan of copper colours. These two colours truly remind me of Canadian leaves in the fall. Don’t they? The brown is like a beautiful hot chocolate and the ‘128 Rouge Brûlé’ is definitely like our Canadian copper maple leaves in Autumn. The ‘128 Rouge Brûlé’ gives such a gorgeous chrome shine on top of the terracotta eyeshadow from the Les 4 Ombres ‘238 Candeur et Expérience’ palette. This is what I love about this collection. The palette can work with these two beautiful eyeshadows and really compliment any look. Very versatile and beautiful.
It is no surprise that red is one of the power colours of CHANEL Fashion and a foundation colour of CHANEL Beauty. Introduced in 1924, CHANEL’s red lipstick, both a signature of Gabrielle Chanel’s personal style and an icon of the beauty house, has never been out of fashion or out of production. Through its many incarnations, it has been used from the beginning for both its attractive and combative qualities, with Gabrielle Chanel saying “mettez du rouge et attaquez*”. It was a fascination with this iconic red, and her own personal obsession with the colour in general – red is often a signature in her editorial work – that led Lucia Pica to explore the colour further. Here, in LE ROUGE · COLLECTION N°1, Pica’s concept of feminine power, passion and emotional preparedness for everyday life, is expressed through the multiplicity of reds to be found throughout. -CHANEL
Le Vernis Culte ‘528 Rouge Puissant’ is the most beautiful candy apple hot red nail polish that I’ve ever seen. It is powerful and looks classy and elegant. The Le Vernis Gloss ‘530 Rouge Radical’ is the lovely gloss that goes on top of the nail polish giving it that lustre and extra shine. Beautiful duo that I highly recommend. This is the hottest nail polish and nail gloss that I have ever seen. Truly feminine and like Lucia Pica says “RED IS INTENSE, VULNERABLE, SEXUAL AND ETERNAL.” LUCIA PICA
“The colour of life and death, love and desire, innocence and experience…” -CHANEL
Here I have the most sexiest red lipstick ever. I’m not exaggerating. If there is one thing you need from this collection it is this red lipstick in the colour Rouge Allure Velvet ’56 Rouge Charnal’. This is your classic red lipstick that is not too bright but just right. If feels beautiful on the lips and is nondrying. It has a very light shine and feels really light on the lips but maintains that beautiful bold colour pigmentation and it is long lasting. I adore this lipstick so much because the formula and colour is really radiant.
Stylo Yeux Waterproof ‘928 Eros’
This eyeliner is beautiful, creamy, smooth and doesn’t tug at the skin. The colour is stunning and warm. It can be worn on its own or in combination with the other eyeshadows in the collection. The Stylo Yeux Waterproof in the colour ‘928 Eros’ is the prettiest burgundy colour. Again this works with all the colours in the collection and is truly Autumnal. I adore this and if you like burgundy colours you will love this. It also has a chrome effect and looks beautiful on the eyes.
Mascara DIMENSIONS ’40 Subversif’
A beautiful everyday mascara that looks like a soft black colour. It has a warm tone to it and looks like a brown to me but I could be wrong. Either way I adore this mascara. It is perfect and works amazing. It does an amazing job at curling the lashes and doesn’t clump the lashes. A beautiful everyday mascara in my opinion. I actually really love that the colour is not too dark because I like a little natural warmth to the lashes if that makes sense. The wand and bristles are perfect and I adore the packaging as well.
This collection is breathtaking and truly stunning. I highly recommend it as it is a Limited Edition and you should check it out when it comes out on August 6th. I feel this collection would be so beautiful to wear in the month of August and in the Fall. I feel the warm tones would be so beautiful in the Summer day’s and evenings. Along with the warm colours of summer and fall this is the perfect collection overall. Just my honest opinion.
