As soon as I saw Chanel‘s Fall 2013 Superstition Collection, it made me think of the camo-colored runways I had been seeing in the new Fall fashion magazines, only with added pops of color. I know “Orange is the New Black”, but, then again, maybe Khaki will soon replace it!
Gabrielle Chanel was a firm believer in luck, and surrounded herself with her favorite charms and talismans. The symbols that warded off fears now are used as silent muses in this enchanting Fall 2013 collection. Khaki tones are offset by new “lucky charm” duos, which are shade-matching pairs for both cheeks and lips.
Le Blush Creme De Chanel Crème Blush ($38.00 each) offers an enticing new way to blush. Simple to apply with fingertips or a brush; the powder-cream color features sheer yet vibrant pigments for instant luminosity.
Top Row to Bottom: Destiny, Presage, Revelation, Inspiration, Affinite, Fantastic
The luxuriously silky texture offers a long-wear satin finish, both soft and comfortable for every skin type. Mix and match the six versatile shades — use as a primer to enhance the wear of another blush or powder, or pair seamlessly with a complementary lip color for a mesmerizing match.
All new shades are swatched from Destiny (golden beige), Presage (apricot) Limited Edition Revelation (soft, shimmering pink), Inspiration (soft, blue-pink), Affinute (intense blue-pink) and Limited Edition Fantastic (burgundy).
Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour ($34.00 each) offers 55-Icone (delicate beige) and 57-Mystique (bright apricot) shades dress lips to charm.
Left to Right: 85-Secret, 86-Instinct, 87-Rendez-Vous, 88-Espirit
Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lip Shine ($34.00 each) offers Limited Edition 85-Secret (soft shimmering pink) and Limited Edition 86-Instinct (soft blue-pink) Limited. Soft shades of pink lead to silent seduction.
Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Colour Lip Shine ($34.00 each) offers 87-Rendez-Vous (intense blue-pink) and 88-Espirit (burgundy), allowing your pout to take on an intense new glow.
Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 each) in Limited Edition Gri-Gri (metallic taupe) and Hasard (matte lavender) add elements of mystery reflecting off your eyes with these chic powder shadows.
Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow ($59.00) offers a limited-edition, U.S. exclusive shades in Mystere, which combines golden khakis with metallics. The color options make for a wonderfully smoldering, smoky eye that creates a captivating look.
Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner ($30.00) Khaki Precieux (khaki with bronze tint) allows your eyes to cast an entrancing spell with a smudge-proof bronze khaki pencil.
Le Volume De Chanel Mascara ($30.00) in Khaki Bronze allows for lashes to go bold in an eye-catching shade of bronze khaki — the ideal complement to the coordinating liner.
Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 each) adds the final touch of intrigue. Three new polishes includes the season’s must-have shades: Limited Edition Alchimie (golden khaki), Mysterious (deep khaki) and Elixir (milky pink).
