It’s never too early to start on the festivities, especially for makeup enthusiasts who have been waiting patiently for limited-edition collections that are too gorgeous to pass up on. And one to definitely have on your radar is Les Chaînes d’Or de Chanel.
This year’s holiday collection interprets the Chanel universe beautifully and is inspired by golden chains, a classic symbol of the house. To light up the holidays, Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup & Colour Designer Lucia Pica expresses this singularity with a palette of rich, deep shades steeped in sparkling antique rose or white gold. Excited? Here’s what to expect.
For starters, the Illuminating Blush Powder (SGD103) is the ultimate all-in-one skin enhancer if you’re all about a do-it-all. Embossed with the chain motif, the satin coppery-pink powder gives skin a burst of radiance and can be used as a highlighter on the cheekbones, temples and bridge of the nose or to deliver warm rosiness to the cheeks, forehead, shoulders and décolleté.
If you’re looking to play up the peepers, go for the Ombre Premiere (SGD55) eyeshadows that also spot the chain motif. You’ll be pleased to know there are 4 sumptuous shades that echo the opulent festivities, including 925 Or Antique (a luminous antique gold), 926 Or Blanc (platinum), 927 Cuivre Rose (a warm coppery pink) and 928 Cuir Brun (an intense khaki brown). Wear them alone or layered for a signature look.
There’s also this year’s Rouge Allure (SGD56) lipsticks, presented in a collector-worthy tube with a golden signature along the edges of the iconic graphic black tube. Four timeless shades have been sprinkled in luminous gold sparkle, showing the house’s unconditional love for the colour gold. There’s something for everyone with 107 Or Beige (a caramel beige), 117 Or Cuivre (a brick red), 127 Rouge d’Or (a fiery red) and 137 Pourpre d’Or (a scintillating plum).
And lastly, for those whose makeup routines have taken a backseat with the daily wearing of masks, you still can dazzle into the season with the long-wearing Le Vernis in 773 Chaine d’Or (SGD41), a shimmering antique gold nail polish.
The Les Chaînes D’Or De Chanel Holiday collection is now available at Chanel’s Fragrance & Beauty Boutiques and from 6 November 2020 at all Chanel beauty counters in Singapore.
