“The concept is that there is no concept! It is about sensuality, feeling and the spirit of things.” LUCIA PICA CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer
The way in which Gabrielle Chanel embraced Summer beauty as a radiant touch of sun on skin, is the stuff of beauty legend. Ever the trailblazer, her liberated definition of natural glamour changed the way we defined beauty forever. Now, for her first CRUISE COLLECTION, Lucia Pica has created a collection of makeup which encapsulates instinctively the beauty and warmth of a CHANEL Summer; a tribute to the free and solar personality of Mademoiselle. LES INDISPENSABLES DE L’ÉTÉ is a luminous and glamorous makeup collection that distills Summer beauty down to its absolute essentials. It is makeup made effortless, focusing on bronzed, glowing skin and easy, understated flashes of color. Colors are inspired by natural landscapes. A palette of sun-baked earthy tones, from warm peachy nudes to intense deep bronzes, is punctuated by green accents and a delicate grey-blue, with glossy coral-pinks evoking a deep, majestic sunset. The textures are easy with delicate formulas that require only the lightest touch. Form follows function: the relaxed Summer vibe is echoed by easy, intuitive products. “It is all part of the relaxed freedom that is at the base of the collection,” says Lucia Pica. But for Lucia Pica, Summer at CHANEL is more than just a bronzed complexion, it’s a whole new state of mind. It’s the confidence engendered by the easy spirit of Summer. It’s freedom, daring not to conform, an it’s trusting in nature, relaxing and letting go. -CHANEL

Happy Holidays! I’m bringing you a CHANEL Holiday look with some products that are coming out in January. This way you have this opportunity to see the products in action! I hope you enjoy the video as well. To view the info blog post about CHANEL Spring 2017 have a look at CHANEL Spring/Summer Collection 2017 Coco Codes #COCOCODES #CHANELMAKEUP For the following makeup look I used the following products:
“ELEGANCE IS BEING EQUALLY BEAUTIFUL INSIDE AND OUTSIDE”
Lucia Pica, CHANEL Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer, has developed a new Spring 2017 makeup collection for CHANEL to celebrate, reinterpret and decipher the five iconic color codes of CHANEL:
red, black, gold, white and beige.
The collection is a journey into the colors that shaped the life of Gabrielle Chanel. Her use of colour was defiant, unexpected, elegant and bold – and always utterly original. Now a part of the very fabric and history of CHANEL, it is impossible to imagine the House without them. Yet in this collection, Lucia Pica has found a way to re-infuse these classic shades with her own elegant irreverence, breathing new life into these beloved colors, and challenging conventional modes of beauty. Rouge noir can now adorn the lips in Spring. White and beige are reimagined for nails. Red becomes younger, bolder, more audacious than ever. “I want to reverse beauty expectations and have women challenge themselves,” states Lucia Pica. […]

I am very excited to bring you the new CHANEL Rouge Allure Ink Liquid Lipstick Swatches along with a new CHANEL LE VERNIS Colour that I’m loving at the moment. I’m also very pleased to share with you a new CHANEL makeup remover. The LE BI-PHASE VISAGE Anti-Pollution Face Makeup Remover is truly amazing on the skin. Very exciting new launches at the end of this month and I’m very honoured to share the beautiful swatches and products with you.
I’m absolutely loving these two shades of Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Colours. They look similar but 150 LUXURIANT is a raspberry red and 146 SÉDUISANT is more of an orange red. The colours are bold and beautiful. The formula is perfection. Not drying, long lasting, soft on the lips and light. It applies softly like silk and dries nicely. The colour and distribution goes on evenly and not patchy. This formula is absolutely stunning! These go for ($43 CAN) The packaging is beautiful. The logo is on the top and the containers are smoked glass. Stunning, simple and elegant! Available September 30th, 2016.
Here I’m wearing all makeup by CHANEL. I’m wearing the Le Rouge Collection 1 and the Rouge Allure Ink liquid matte lipstick in the colour 146 SÉDUISANT. I’m also wearing CHANEL Le Vernis in the colour 538 GRIS OBSCUR.
Here I’m wearing ROUGE ALLURE INK in the Colour 150 LUXURIANT. Also the Nail colour is CHANEL Le Vernis in the colour 538 GRIS OBSCUR.
A long-lasting liquid lipstick with a smooth texture that glides on like a gloss and sets with a luminous, velvet-like finish. -CHANEL
Polymers, waxes and plant oils smooth and nourish lips,while Jojoba Oil and a unique anti-oxidant complex offer hydration and protective benefits. The applicator tip allows for comfortable and easy application.In a provocative range of red-tint shades, from tart pink to deep brown-noir. -CHANEL
Now lets talk about one of my favourite nail colours at the moment. The LE VERNIS Longwear Nail colour in 538 GRIS OBSCUR. Very mysterious and dark. Love it for fall. It is not black but more of a dark grey and I adore it. It is very classy and sexy in my opinion.
I also have the new The LE BI-PHASE VISAGE which is coming out soon! This is an incredible makeup remover. This leaves the skin feeling clean, soft and luminous. What I love about this makeup remover is there’s no residue left on the skin and my skin feels really nourished and soft after using it. I absolutely love it! The new makeup remover is a must for everyone. It leaves the skin so clean, so soft and silky.
This advanced formula combines two phases, each with a key ingredient: the water phase offers the antipollution power of Blue Micro-Algae, while the emulsion phase gently delivers the fortifying benefits of Marine Salicornia extract. When the bottle is shaken, the two phases blend into a solution with exceptional makeup-removing power. Suitable for all skin types, the mild, residue-free formula gently yet effectively removes impurities on skin’s surface, including even the most stubborn makeup and pollutants. -CHANEL
Chanel has captured my heart this Autumn with the entire Le Rouge Collection Number 1 and the Rouge Allure INK Liquid Matte lipsticks. The lipsticks are so beautiful and lightweight. The formula is perfection. Bold Colours and beautiful tones. The lipsticks glide on like silk and at the end of the day skin so soft and clean with the Le Bi-Phase Visage. This is all I need…I love…CHANEL.
Available September 30th 2016
*PR Samples. That being said all opinions are always honest and true. Not an AD. Not Sponsored.
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.
A swatch of ‘ 320 Rouge Profond’
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.
