Chanel Fall 2016 Makeup Collection - Le Rouge No. 1 - launched recently and is available now at Nordstrom (online as well as in stores).   I spotted the collection at my local Nordstrom store and got some swatches to share.  Chanel's fall 2016 makeup theme is all about the color red.  The collection, aptly named Le Rouge No. 1, is the brainchild of the new creative director of Chanel, Lucia Pica, and features products in varying shades of red, some outright red like the lip colors and some with hints of red, like in the Illusion D'Ombre.  As someone who loves warm browns, reddish and rusty tones, and generally most things matte, I loved this take on the rich warm colors of autumn.  Scroll on for swatches of the Chanel Fall 2016 Le Rouge No. 1 makeup collection.

Unlike other eyeshadow quads I have tried from Chanel, the new Les 4 Ombres Candeur Et Experience (268) is an all-matte quad with three shades of brown and a fourth brick red color.  On my medium-dark skin, this quad would be the perfect neutral quad.  The browns would be quit close to my darker lid color - the lightest shade would be an almost perfect match - and the red would work well as a crease color or even an all-over lid color.  The red shadow has a bit of brown in it that makes it more of an earthy color rather than a bright pop of red, imo.   I love the matte shades in this quad, but I do think 3 of the 4 shades in this quad (all the browns) would look quite similar on my darker lids.

The lone blush in the Chanel Fall 2016 collection is Joues Contraste blush in Rouge Profond (320).  Again, this is a muted red blush with a hint of earthy brown tones to it - quite pigmented and shows up quite well even on my darker skin tone.

The Le Rouge collection includes a few more products in the eye makeup line-up:  Illusion D'Ombre Rouge Brule (128) - a metallic copper-toned cream eyeshadow and Illusion D'Ombre Velvet in Rouge Contraste (132) - a dark brown with hints of red to it.  The Illusion D'Ombre Velvets are supposedly matte, but there does seem to be some very fine shimmer in the product, more obvious in the pot than in the swatches.  While two colors look good used on their own, I think the two would work beautifully when layered - the dark brown Rouge Contraste over the coppery Rouge Brule.  Two waterproof twist-up eyeliners are included in this collection - Stylo Yeux liners in Eros 928 (a burgundy brown shade) and Agape 929 (a dark bronze brown).

Chanel makeup collections are never complete without some gorgeous lip color, and I think the lipsticks in the fall 2016 collection truly live up to the Le Rouge spirit.  Red is the predominant color with a lone nude/neutral lipstick to cater to the color-shy lot like me.  Two Rouge Allure Velvets and 4 Rouge Allure lipsticks are included in this range as well as 2 lipliners - a deeper red Seduction (98) and a brighter Desir (97).  Overall, the lip colors are perfect for fall, whether you want a deeper darker shade or a pop of red.

Chanel's fall 2016 makeup collection - Le Rouge No. 1 - is a bit different from what I have seen before.  I love the warm browns and dark colors in the eye makeup range, and I love the matte eyeshadows in this collection.  The lip colors are more in line with what I see every year, a lot of reds and some neutrals for the fall, but the colors are pretty, and if you are looking for a classic red you definitely won't be disappointed in this collection.
