Chanel Spring 2009 Makeup Collection 2008-12-23 08:01:55

Chanel Goes Back to Boho For Spring 2009

Now that we've officially hit the first day of Winter it's time to think. . . Spring? That's right. The weather may be chillier, but the beauty industry is looking ahead to the warmer months, as Chanel recently announced its upcoming Spring makeup collection, which brings back the boho-chic trend.

Which begs the question: Did it ever really die? The collection, inspired by Coco Chanel's love of upscale bohemian looks, will be available in just a few weeks. Featuring deep eye color shades for day and night and a contrasting shade selection of bold red and nude lips, the collection is earthy, sensual, and mysterious — much like the allure of the boho lifestyle itself.

I'm daydreaming about this limited edition Satin Lip Colour Compact ($60), which comes with five satin creme shades (pale pink to a deep plum), cleverly shaped into that classic Chanel "double c" shape. How cool is that? See what else is included in the collection, when you


  • Lips: Rouge Hydrabase Creme Lipstick in six new shades: Rose Rebelle (pink), Beige Desire (beige), Euphoria (intense pink), Fiesta (apricot), Gipsy Scarlett (red), and Fuego (coral red); If you're thinking glossy, there's Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF 15 in Malta (copper) and Positano (beige); If subtle shimmer is what you desire, try Glossimer in Wild Rose (rosewood) and Beige Guitare (taupe); And for all-day options, there's Ultra Wear Lip Colour in Alexandrite (red) and Opal Rose (pink).
  • Eyes — Quadra Eye Shadow in Mystic Eyes includes plum, pink, beige and bronze shades. If metallic accents are what you seek, try Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Magic Night (plum shimmer), Liberty (beige shimmer), or Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Delta (gold). To complete the sultry look, there's Precision Eye Definer in Brun Cuivré (brown) and Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel Waterproof in Brun (brown).
  • Nails — Two polishes: Vendetta (dark violet) and Django (beige pink).
  • Face — For a matte finish, there's Poudre Universelle Compacte Beige. And for contouring cheeks and the décolletage, try Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Brun.

The collection is actually already available in several stores. My saks had it as of yesterday, maybe even earlier. I got the eyeshadow quad (it is freaking awesome, gorgeous), the brown eyeliner, and the vendetta nail polish. Chanel makeup is so fab!!!
