Chanel Christmas Collection 2012

The images of Chanel's gorgeous Christmas collection 'Eclats du Soir' have been circulating for a while, but I got the chance to have a peek at the collection in person this week, ahead of it's official launch on the 9th November and wanted to share a few of my own pictures with you all.
As usual with their Christmas offerings, Chanel have stuck to more traditionally festive hues, opting for deep plum reds on the lips and nails and plenty of shimmering tones for the eyes.
The one nail shade from the collection (Malice) is absolutely stunning, and perfect for the festive period. I can expect this one will be a quick sell-out.
The eyeshadow quad in Harmonie du Soir is another product I think will sell-out quickly. It has the gorgeous multi-faceted eyeshadows with the signature CC's embossed into them, and while the deep plum shade is quite unusual, the golden, bronze and pale pink that accompany it are perfect for every day wear.
My personal two favourites from the line up have to be the Rouge Allure Velvet lipstick in L'Impatiente.


The texture of the Rouge Allure Velvets is gorgeous. This shade looks seriously dark and scary in the bullet, but it's actually a lot more wearable than you would think, and looks super glamorous on the lips.

My other pick of the bunch would be their Illusion D'Ombre eye shadow in Apparence.
A beautiful antique gold shimmer creme that is another perfect choice for Christmas. It applies very sheerly on to the lids.
While this might be a disappointment to many, I actually really like it as it makes the colour so much more subtle than a lot of glitter or shimmer shadows.

The wear time is really good and (unlike the black shade from this range!) I didn't experience any issues with fallout when I tried it.

Chanel's Christmas collection will be on counters from November 9th, prices start at £18. Does anything catch your eye from this collection?

  53. Im not into this color. The picture of the model looks ok, and she has the same coloring as you Fleur, but I don't care for the look,it's too much. Maybe for Halloween costume make up but as a trend I'm sticking to what looks good om me.

  72. I've followed your posts and vlogs for awhile now and have established that you are very pretty and is a ray of sunshine. But my golly, you look stunning in your photo! Your skin looks flawless. Your eyes are mesmerizing. And is that a new haircut? It really suits you well. That lipstick is very very nice on you. I want one also, just because you have it. Ahahaha :D

    PS. Not a stalker or anything, just wanted to tell you that you're really pretty. Sorry if I scared you a bit :|

  73. I love this pretty post. Am searching the net for information on their cute perfume packages for the season. A few years ago, Chanel sold little mini perfumes, wrapped in a pretty valour case. Oh I hope they do something similar this year... have a few girlfriend in Europe, and it would be perfect for them! x x x

  74. gifts for girls manufacturers - if you directly contact any wholesale manufacturers in your area, they can surely make a women rolex watches based on the design your provide them with. They can customize the cheap gucci handbags to meet your needs and requirements and will not charge you a lot of money for doing so. cheap chanel handbags can get it made in a couple of days and compared to local stores, they will charge less as well.

  75. I want the nail polish in Malice so badly !!! It's completely sold out in San Francisco. :(

  76. I say Templar specifically GW2 gold because whenever I log in, there are swtor credits always so many Templars that the map looks like an ant farm, but there is never even a full party of other factions. In fact, I have logged in one faction to find myself wow leveling the only one, but when I move to Temps, I drown in groups.
