10 Chic Chanel Products Every Sophisticated Woman Needs to Own

Aug 19 2016 - 3:00am

Coco Chanel brought the world a lot more than tweed suits [1] and Pinterest-worthy quotes [2]: she's responsible for making millions of women feel chic with the purchase of one single item, be it a purse or a bottle of nail polish. Here are the top 10 Chanel beauty products we suggest you snag in order to feel fabulous . . . without totally decimating your bank account.

Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Rose Ecrin

This neutral, midtoned rose blush [3] ($45) delivers the perfect dose of pigment to cheeks and flatters a wide range of complexions. Try it out — the shade is a makeup-bag staple of actress Priyanka Chopra [4], and we think it'll become one of yours, too.

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Color in Vamp

This specific shade of nail polish [5] ($28) has been a cult favorite since it launched in the mid-1990s — it's supposedly the same color Uma Thurman [6] wore in Pulp Fiction [7].

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eye Shadow in Tissé Essentiel

The name of the palette [8] ($61) says it all — these shades are essential to your eye makeup routine. The versatile hues easily work for office-appropriate beauty or a vampy look for date night. Try using the dark shade as a liner in the morning, then smoking it out in the crease after hours.

Chanel Papier Matifiant de Chanel

A lot of brands may make blotting papers, but only these [9] ($35) are printed with the chic Chanel logo and are packaged in a mirrored case. You get 150 sheets, too!

Chanel Le Coton

Sure, they may be part of the most expensive manicure in the world [10], but that just means these cotton pads [11] ($20) look luxe sitting on your vanity.

Chanel Inimitable Mascara

Many editors swear [12] by this inky mascara [13] ($32), and for good reason. It lengthens lashes to the point that your colleagues will think you have extensions [14] and slightly curls your fringe, opening up your eyes.

Chanel Perfection Lumière Velvet Smooth-Effect Makeup SPF 15

Matte foundations can often feel extremely heavy on the skin, but Chanel's iteration [15] ($48) is featherlight. It also boasts an oil-free formula and sun protection, making it a truly stellar product that we'd buy over and over again.

Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy

This color was named for one of Coco Chanel's lovers, Arthur Edward "Boy" Capel. He was the one to give Chanel the funds to start her own shop, and his clothing style inspired many of her early (more masculine) designs. The sweet pink shade of this lipstick [16] ($37) is anything but manly.

Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multicolor SPF 15

This limited-edition compact [17] ($65) adds a flush of healthy radiance to any complexion while infusing it with the brand's legendary N°5 fragrance.

Chanel N°5 Perfume

Chanel N°5 [18] ($125) isn't just what Marilyn Monroe wore to bed — it's arguably the most iconic fragrance in the world.
