|Chanel Les Automnales Fall 2015 Makeup Collection at Nordstrom|
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.
|Les 5 Ombres De Chanel Eyeshadow Palette - Entrelacs - Swatches|

Please excuse the bad lighting/photo - I had some problem with my camera. I will try updating with better swatches later.

Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow - 254 Tisse D'Automne
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.

Vert Obscur (679)

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.
