Chanel recently came out with a new collection: Libre. Inspired by cityscapes and urban materials, the collection features cool metallic tones and offers some colorful blush and lip shades.
One of the items from the collection is Liquid Mirror, a silver metallic nail polish that shines on your nails like a shimmery silver foil. The color is the perfect color to finish off your edgy/glamorous holiday look. I am somewhat obsessed with metallic nail polishes so this has become a go-to for me.
Hyperrose Glass is the opposite – it’s a light, almost translucent pink nail polish that has a glassy finish. The polish is perfect for every-day wear. My tip is to wear this with a gel coat to make it even more glassy.
Part of the collection is the Rouge Allure Gloss in Super Coral – a stunning coral lip gloss.
Coral lip colors tend to make my skin look dull but this color works better for me somehow. It’s a coral that leans slightly towards a rosy pink.
I wore this gloss almost every day when we were in Vietnam and love the vibrancy of the color!
*Purchase of Super Coral is only available in the Chanel E-Boutique
The star of the collection is the Architectonic eyeshadow palette. The palette consists of five shades: a matte midnight blue, the shimmery metallic blue, platinum grey (my favorite), cement grey and mirror grey.
When I buy an eyeshadow palette, what I look for is a good range between mattes, shimmers and highlighting shades. This palette offers all in stunning cool tones.
The first look I created with this palette was with matte midnight blue on the lash line with a subtle cat eye in the outer corners and platinum grey on the lids. Blended out, it was a beautiful smoky and edgy night look. But I felt like I could have also left it as it was – with harsh lines, the shades create an almost futuristic and artistic look.
When it comes to blushes, I’m a sucker for pigmented shades with a glow effect. Hyperfresh is a gorgeous bright pink with subtle golden flecks. Apply this gently with a blush brush on the apples of your cheeks and blend out the glowing particles towards the cheeks.
This blush will have your cheeks look rosy and plump all winter!
