Les Aquarelles de CHANEL‏

The story:

The atmosphere is pastel-toned, with clean silhouettes of catwalk models styled as ballerinas. Soft pinks merge into tones of ivory and dove grey. The enigmatic grace of a black satin ribbon tied high around the neck accentuates the mysterious spirit hidden behind the models ‘angelic faces.

The look:

Created in the image of the 2011 Spring-Summer Haute Couture Collection, the shade range focuses on a palette of pinks and grey on the eyes, framed black and bathed in light.


Ombres Tissees has silvery, golden and pinkish tones of beige. Arranged in three bands.  A little cloud of Ombre Essentielle in Gris Exquis is shaded just beneath the brow line. A bold, geometric line of Stylo Yeux Waterproof 10 Ébène is drawn the precise width of the eyelid.

Blush extends from cheekbones to just below the eye. The lips and nails are dressed in a hint of transparent pink, conveying an impression of romance. 58 Royallieu Rouge Coco Shine hydrates the lips, while LE VERNIS 507 Tendresse complements the look.


The look is launched but unfortunately only available at Chanel boutiques.
