Les Contrastes de Chanel - Fall 2010 - sneak peek at Lifestyle

Spotted the Fall makeup collection - Les Contrastes de Chanel - Fall 2010 - at Lifestyle.  I was waiting for it after seeing it on all my favorite blogs. The colours were all nice, but not really for my skin colour. Never mind..it was just fun seeing all the stuff :-)  Clicked some pics that turned out not so clear - my cellphone camera isn't the best.

Two single eyeshadows - Ombre Essentielle - Khakhi and Taupe (limited editions)
Les 4 Ombres - Enigma - eyeshadow quad

Three new Joues Contraste blush - Plum Attraction, Pink Explosion, and Rose Temptation (L to R below).  Lot of colour packed in those blushes, and you really need to use a light hand, I think :-)  The trend this fall (every fall, I guess) is of strong cheek colours - saw that on a couple of people on TV, and it sure looked good on them.

Levres Scintillantes Glossimer - 4 new shades. Chanel glossimers are the best glosses. Go on sheer with a hint of the shade in the bottle, nonsticky. Scintillantes - have a shimmer in them. Is the one reason I do not have any from this line. Personal preference, I prefer non-shimmer glosses.

Coral, Petite Peach, Rose Dilema, Teaser (L to R)

Style Yeux Waterproof - waterproof twist-up eyeliner pencil. One shade - Cassis - is a dark plum colour.


I know the picture is blurred, but that's the shade.

Also part of the fall collection:

3 new Rouge Coco lipsticsks - Chalys, Chintz, Rose Dentelle.
Le Crayon Khol - Clair. This is a beige-whitish colour.

The next pics are not really a part of the fall collection, but I have not noticed these before, so I am assuming these are new arrivals to the Chanel makeup line - Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss (click for collection details).  These pack a bit more colour and are thicker than the regular Chanel glosses, but these are definitely not as pigmented as the Rouge Laques.  The shade I picked up later - Emoi (swatches and review).
