“When I close my eyes and think of Naples, these are the colors I see…” -Lucia Pica CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and color designer.

Chanel’s NEAPOLIS: NEW CITY Spring/Summer 2018 Collection is very fun, sophisticated and beautiful! I love all the colours and textures. I really love each piece in this collection and feel that one piece compliments the other and works really well together. No matter how you mix and match each piece, the makeup works harmoniously like a beautiful melody. The collection is called Neapolis – New City.

“For Spring/ Summer 2018, Lucia Pica heeds the siren’s call of home to return to the city of her birth anew. Here, Naples’ ever-changing landscape, layered with history, meaning and metaphor, provides the inspiration for colors, moods and techniques that offer a warm, rich and unexpectedly Mediterranean approach for the house at once antique and utterly contemporary.” -CHANEL


I would like to share a few pieces from the NEAPOLIS COLLECTION, the beautiful pieces are as follows:

Joues Contraste



This blush is so perfect for the spring and summer. I absolutely love a pop of colour on the cheeks. It’s the perfect pink that gives the complexion a beautiful healthy look.


Les 9 Ombres Edition N1 AFFRESCO (Limited Edition)


I have a feeling this palette will sell out in minutes!

This palette is breathtaking and is one of my favourite pieces of the Neapolis collection.

“My hope is that women will be open and spontaneous with the colors…they are buildable, so you can wear a subtle wash of color or create a more intense effect.” LUCIA PICA

Lucia pica says “All the elements of Naples are in here”, This palette is a play on texture as well as colour. There are three matte, satin and high-shine shades. All really soft and blendable. The colours range from brighter to more muted tones, reflecting Naples and its myriad influences. Peachy beige is tempered by a subtle mink brown. A bright gold sings out beside a dark rusty-red brown.





I really love this grey eyeliner. It’s waterproof and really compliments all the pieces in this collection.  It works so well with all the eyeshadows. It gives the eyes the attention they need but doesn’t take away from all other aspects of this collection. The pencil goes on smoothly and doesn’t tug on the delicate skin. It’s a wonderful waterproof eyeliner that lasts really long.



*65 L’ARISTOCRATICA (Limited Edition)


The Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick feels so beautiful and comfortable on the lips. This colour is perfect for the Spring and Summer. I absolutely love the fact that it’s not too pink, not too nude and not too peach. It’s just the right colour. I feel this colour will look amazing on all skin tones just like the entire collection.





I adore all Rouge Allure INK Lipsticks. This one in particular is bright and breathtaking! A showstopper! I love how vibrant and bold this colour is. Hot! Hot! Hot!




If you want a lovely pout and shine, Rouge Coco Gloss in 786 Sibylla will give you just that! I love this formula and colour. It’s the perfect pink and the formula is not sticky or gloopy. It is just right!


POUDRE A LEVRES (Limited Edition)



The Poudre a Levres makes me oh so happy! I adore getting the “just kissed” look. It’s the loveliest colour and so perfect in every way. I love using my finger to dip into the very moisturizing and hydrating lip balm and then with another finger into the powder. So satisfying! You can add as much or as little as you like. It’s so much fun and feels amazing on the lips. Not drying at all and the colour is wow!






I really love Le Vernis by CHANEL. They are my favourite nail polishes ever. They last very long and the colours are beautiful! This collection has four new colours and the two that I have are Nuvola Rosa and Verde Pastello. They remind me of desserts like macarons which are my favourite by the way. These two colours are so perfect for spring and summer and I love how fun they are. I’m so happy to see bright and fun colours!


Each piece in this collection works together perfectly and I adore how fresh and happy the colours are. They are very fun and vibrant! Thank you so much to CHANEL for the beautiful samples. I’m truly grateful.

Here is a makeup look that I created with this collection.

thanks for visiting



To find inspiration for the Fall / Winter Makeup Collection, Lucia Pica – CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer – embarked on a Californian road trip. Her idea was startling in its simplicity: to experience afresh the lights and colors of the outside world, creating a complete starting point for her creative process. From the dawn mists and sun- dappled coastline to the City Lights and gritty noir of downtown LA, Lucia Pica embraced the serendipitous creative possibilities afforded when the journey becomes the destination.


”You can be inspired by a photograph that already exists, but creating your own inspiration gives another dimension to the process – it gets much more exciting…” Lucia Pica

”I wanted to make my own mood board; to be inspired by what is happening in the moment,” says Lucia Pica. She captured fleeting, photographic moments to find fresh nuances for color and visual textures that could inform the Fall / Winter Collection.

904100119069003590430018 copy904200339057000190420023

”I’m so passionate about each color,” says Lucia Pica. ”I care so much and I think it’s important that vibrancy comes through.” Her eye for new and unexpected color combinations brings a new sense of poetry to the collection:


”the feeling was depth and freedom,” she says. For example, LES 4 OMBRES Road Movie eyeshadow palette, with its satiny green-blue of the sea, satiny copper, matte stone beige and dark blue-green with grey undertone, presented itself to Lucia Pica almost fully-formed: ”there was the sea, with the sun coming from one side to create this beautiful coppery gold, and then this lighter, brighter blue and a darker blue, and the pavement looked this beautiful beige…it was an obvious palette. It was just right in front of me;

I couldn’t escape.”





For nails, LE VERNIS HORIZON Line captures the pale, soft greenish grey of the sea on a cloudy day with almost watercolor perfection. Inspiration came from everywhere: the bark of a tree, tyre marks, headlights. The journey’s end was in downtown LA, where Lucia Pica spent the day. ”Enough nature and poetry – I was inspired by grittier locations, too.”


As befits the freedom of a road trip, effortlessness is key to the collection, too: Lucia Pica also introduces a long-time dream of hers; a PALETTE ESSENTIELLE containing three key products to offer a modern touch of natural polish in the form of creamy concealer, highlighter and blush used also for lip and cheeks. And a renewed focus on brows with new STYLO SOURCILS WATERPROOF eyebrow pencils offers a sophisticated way to frame and define the face.



CHANEL’s Fall / Winter Collection is about the memories, emotions and connections that color can inspire – an exercise in broadening horizons, in every exhilarating sense.

The centrepiece of the collection, the PALETTE ESSENTIELLE takes the idea of effortlessness in beauty and redefines it for modern women. Available in three shades Beige Clair, Beige Médium, Beige Intense, each palette offers a 3-in-1 of new products which come together in one sleek, handbag-friendly compact. Together, they combine to create a fresh, glowy complexion all day long with that essential touch of refinement and polish – something Lucia Pica describes as her ‘signature for skin.’ ”I wanted a product that could achieve that fresh skin look I do on shoots,” she says.

First, and the most generous of the three, is a concealer, ”to use where you need it,” says Lucia Pica. She chose to make this the largest so that you could use it both to start the day and for touch-ups throughout. Unlike many concealers, its feeling is one of comfort and sophistication: it has a creamy, balm- like texture, which glides comfortably over skin. Spherical particles blur imperfections and create a flattering, soft-focus effect.

Next, a highlighter: an essential offering of pure, radiant light. The gliding, creamy formula leaves a delicate touch of luminosity on skin; nothing too shimmering or obvious; the high concentration of pearlescent particles provide a modern way with which to play with light.


Finally, a moment of color. A melting, creamy blush created to bring a translucent flush of color to cheeks and lips, creating a fresh and healthy look to the complexion. Each palette contains a buildable blush specifically chosen to work with the corresponding skin tone, the beautiful final flourish to a new essential gesture for the complexion. If a road trip is a metaphor for the journey through life, then this is surely the essential travel companion. A new expert gesture, and the new must-have of the CHANEL complexion.

And to complete the use of PALETTE ESSENTIELLE, CHANEL launches two elegant and essential brushes: The RETRACTABLE DUAL-TIP CONCEALER BRUSH, with a flat side at one end with which to pick up the concealer, and the soft tip at the other end with which to blend. The striking new RETRACTABLE DUAL-HEAD FACE BRUSH/BLUSH AND HIGHLIGHTER completes the collection: use the white side with the highlighter and the black side for the blusher.

The art of the unexpected; the energising jolt of taking a fresh look at familiar subjects. CHANEL presents Fall / Winter beauty as a new understanding of beauty and simplicity that very much celebrates duality. ”I am always trying to find the opposition – I think it’s something that is very CHANEL,” says Lucia Pica. So, for eyes, a darkness and intensity as enigmatic as the Californian ocean; for lips, the brightest pop colors that bring irreverence and energy. The smoky, spacey and skyward shades of the two LES 4 OMBRES eyeshadow palette CITY Lights and Road Movie are oxygenated by their outdoorsy inspiration, tones of deep water harmonising with shades of cool air.

And two OMBRE PREMIERE crème mono eyeshadows Urban and MEMORY exemplify the easiness of Lucia Pica’s road trip-inspired collection; each a shorthand for elegant eye make-up, like Urban, a deep petrol blue that seems to exemplify the very essence of a road trip.

Another effortless essential, and a hallmark of Lucia Pica’s own work: the perfect deep black eyeliner pen. SIGNATURE DE CHANEL is a new fluid, intense and smooth formula that glides effortlessly across the eyes for an intense, satiny-black line, and is both waterproof and smudge-proof.

Eyes are further intensified by an entirely new range of STYLO SOURCILS WATERPROOF eyebrow pencils in beautiful, natural-looking shades. A soft, buildable yet long-lasting formulation, the bevelled tip never needs sharpening, and offers a flat edge for a softer look and a pointed tip for definition, while a perfectly-shaped brush offers instant and essential brow grooming.

 And so to the lips: Lucia Pica’s desire for this Fall / Winter collection was that ”bright pop colors” for lips would be a counterpoint to the intensity of the eyes. The color spectrum runs from nude beige through effervescent corals to burnished reds, but there is duality here too, as colors come in a variety of exquisite textures: for a nude look, choose from the matte liquid lip color of ROUGE ALLURE INK in Lost or the moist, creamy finish of ROUGE COCO in Daylight. For sunset shades, choose from either ROUGE ALLURE INK in the sweet orange Highway or the vivid coral of ROUGE COCO in Experimental.

And there are reds, too: ROUGE ALLURE VELVET, that decadent, soft, rich matte lipstick, expands the theme of opposition as it gets reimagined for day and night: and First Light is a bright, poppy orange-red; and Nightfall is a dusky burned red.

Finally, nails are where the touch of irreverence in California’s beauty finds a home: LE VERNIS HORIZON Line is a soft greenish grey; LE VERNIS New Dawn is a muted taupe-grey.

At night, skin never sleeps! It works tirelessly and regenerates itself continuously as the cell renewal mechanism goes into overdrive. This is the optimal time to apply a night care product and offer skin targeted anti- aging effectiveness. This holds true not only for the face, but also the neck and décolleté: two very delicate areas that need special care due to their thin skin and the effects of gravity while the body is in a reclining position during sleep. This is why CHANEL has completed its expert firming anti- wrinkle line with LE LIFT Skin-Recovery Sleep Mask.

 Le Lift Firming Soothing Lotion /Fermeté Lissage $90.00

Prelude to every woman’s beauty ritual, LE LIFT Lotion becomes indispensable. This moisturizing, smoothing and firming lotion balances the skin to preserve the integrity of its barrier function. Formulated with a “magnetic water” complex, it diffuses its active ingredients within the epidermis, notably the active ingredient 3.5-DA. The skin is hydrated and regains its suppleness and softness. It is ready to receive the skincare products applied afterwards.
