Les Essentials de Chanel Fall 2012 Makeup Collection

It’s hot outside but Fall isn’t too far away!

Officially details for the Chanel Fall 2012 Makeup Collection have popped up today.

Take a look!

The little black dress, the quilted handbag, the two-toned shoe — the iconic essentials created by Coco Chanel inspire
Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, to create the elegant Fall 2012 Collection, Les Essentials de Chanel. Classic pinks and natural beiges soften the face and lips while fuschia and modern black dress the nails.

Chanel Lumiere D’Artifices Beiges Illuminating Powder with Shimmer (Light beige, Rosy beige) $65
This highlighting face powder epitomizes the modern-classic look of Fall beauty and the artistry of Chanel. Enchantingly
rendered to resemble sequins, the duo of lighter and darker beige shades blends together harmoniously for a subtly
iridescent complexion, extending a summer glow.

The focus of Fall eyes, this new formulation showcasing four shades of the renowned eyeshadow delivers long-lasting sheer and

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    This collection looks lovely. I’m thinking about getting the illuminating powder but will have to wait until I can try it at counters. I’m also very interested in the eyeshadows since I own one of the soft touch shadows and I love it.

  • Jo

    I like the the highlighter has a relief pattern on it, it’s just a shame that it is a recyled one 🙁 The promo image is nice and I’d like to see what the new eye shadows are like…but really I wants moar illusion d’ombres!!

  • Icequeen81

    I really want the brown plum she is wearing in the promo

  • SusanT

    I just bought the Rose Initiale blush — it’s gorgeous!!! The perfect pink with a touch of peach blush. Check it out ladies, one of the prettiest pinks Chanel has ever come out with; too bad there’s no picture here.

  • cat

    The illuminating powder reminds me less of sequins and more of Cheerios. Anyone else?

  • Mal @ The Chic Geek

    Loving the nail polishes in vertigo and frenzy! Just saw they’re already on chanel.com so I guess I’ll just have to place an order now 🙂

  • Melissa

    I’m a little sad that I don’t love this and a little happy because it will give me more money for DIOR. I was looking at the powder on chanel.com it’s up already. I really just don’t need another gold powder for $85 … le sigh.

  • rebecca

    This is already available on chanel.com and at Nordstrom’s – I know it’s on the website but when I stopped by the makeup counter tonight the SA had gone home already so I couldn’t check out pieces 🙁 I’m lusting after the blush, the extrait de gloss, and a rouge coco myself 🙂

    • rebecca

      Also, I believe chanel.com has two shades exclusively for eyeshadow – black star and ebony. At least, I haven’t seen them elsewhere but they’re on chanel.com if I sort by collection.

  • Anna

    Wow! Everything looks amazing……sigh….I want to buy everything.
    Also kind of random but is the model Vanessa Paradis? Cause if it is, she looks AMAZING for her age. Heck, she looks amazing for any age.

    omg! so lovely collection. I just linked the blog, hope you don’t mind. xoxo.
