Inspired by the beautiful Autumn foliage, Chanel came out this year on the market with an extremely rich tapestry of shades that dress the eyes, the cheeks and the lips with the most exquisite earthy neutrals and copper tones – eyes and cheeks and a blaze of deep reds for the lips… All falling under the name of Les Automnales 2015 Collection.
My picks: two of the new lipstick releases, the Rouge Coco Shines #99 Mélancolie and #112 Téméraire. I obviously had to pick the Rouge Coco Shines because it’s simply my favourite lipstick formulation of all the sheers that I have ever tried, right there with my Tom Ford correspondents ( see review/comparison between the two here ).
The Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #99 Mélancolie is on the nude side. A very rich, warm caramel brown, with visible shimmers in it. On my pigmented lips tends to disappear due to its sheer finish, as expected from all the Coco Shines. It’s an excellent everyday/any occasion lip colour, very hydrating, very natural on the lips. But if your lips are less pigmented than mine, then I guess you’ll be able to enjoy even more this spectacular Autumnal colour.
The Chanel Rouge Coco Shine #112 Téméraire on the other hand, surpassed all my expectations. A very deep, very pigmented, almost blazing red, Téméraire transfers on my lips with an unexpected pigmentation and coverage. With this one what you see in the tube you’ll have on the lips as well! And with the same beautiful formulation and glossy/sparkly finish.
They’re both two very well balanced lip colours that I’m sure I’ll wear a lot this season. Especially because of the formulation and not because of the actual shades which, let’s be completely honest here!, they’re not particularly unique!… Which also makes me think that they’re going to be good all year rounders as well! Not must haves though… Unless you’re not as mad as I am about this formula! Haha!…
What I would definitely recommend from the Chanel Les Automnales 2015 Makeup Collection would be their Limited Edition items ( which I wasn’t able to get my hands on for the life of me! sighs ), starting with that amazing Les 5 Ombre de Chanel Eyeshadow Paette, called Entrelacs, a way more approachable version of the one from last year and definitely the Illusion d’Ombre in #111 Rouge-Gorge – as its name suggests, a “gorgeous” copper creamy-mousse eyeshadow.
