Chanel Les Automnales Fall 2015 Makeup Collection - Swatches and My Picks

It does feel a little odd to see fall 2015 makeup collections pouring into stores in the middle of summer, but I guess the beauty/fashion industry lives on a whole different planet.  Of course, that also means winters clothes are coming in, and I can find summer dresses and shorts on sale now, but no such luck with makeup (at least not the ones I want) :P   Anyway getting back to the topic of makeup, I have been waiting for the Chanel Fall 2015 makeup collection ever since photos started showing up on Specktra, and I got lucky today because the Chanel counter at Nordstrom was just setting up the display when I got there.  Not all the testers were on display yet, and the manager at the counter had to actually search out the testers for me to swatch :D  I picked up a few pieces from the collection, but first here's a look at the swatches of some of the products from the Chanel Fall 2015 makeup collection.

Now that I am done with the swatches of everything that I did not buy, here's a peek at what came home with me.  I picked the rust/orange Illusion D'Ombre in 116 Rouge Gorge.  I never bothered to buy one of these earlier because of the shimmer, but this one seemed matte.  There were no testers, so I had to buy without swatching.  I haven't used it beyond swatching it for these photos here, so no opinions on this one yet.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in 116 Rouge Gorge - heavier swatch on the left, right lesser product applied sheer.  I was a bit surprised at this bright/light orange color - almost like a pastel lipstick.

Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in 816 Rouge Gorge - the product sheered out a  lot with blending and looks more rust/warm orange.  Hopefully, it looks good on the eyes, and more importantly, hope some color shows up!

Listed ass 806 on the Nordstrom website.

I also picked up two of the nail polishes in this collection - Vert Obscur (679) and Chataigne (669).  I have an obsession with Chanel nail colors, and someone owed me a birthday gift, and I got these.

In the evening light, it looked this polish had some purple undertone to it, but for the most part this does look like a vampy brown.

I am a bit biased with Chanel, but I do think among all the recent fall makeup launches and images I have seen online, Chanel Fall 2015 seems to best capture the colors of autumn.  I like Dior's Cosmopolite collection too (a lot), but for me, the Chanel colors are just perfect.  I didn't like the 5-shadow palette - Entrelacs - all that much, but the khaki and bronze quad is beautiful, and I loved the eyeliner pencils - Ardent and Feuilles.  Among the lipsticks, I loved RAV La Bouleversante.  I didn't want to go on a buying spree and had to restrict myself to the 3 products that I did pick up, but for most Chanel fans, there will be lots to love in this fall collection.

I don't have any official information regarding this makeup collection and have relied on the Nordstrom website for most of the product/shade information.  Apologies if there are any errors in the post, and please do leave a note in the comments if  this needs any corrections.
