I’ve said it before, but when i get parcels like this through the post i have to pinch myself that they’re actually intended for me! I’m under no obligation to post this, or show it to you, but i’m so bloody grateful and i genuinely love it all. So here i am, telling you all about it as it really should be part of your Autumn make up shopping list. P.s some of you will have seen on my stories that i’m also doing some work with Olympus UK. These images (except the last one) were all shot on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 MARK III and my 30 mm Lens! I think they look pretty great (all edited in Lightroom) The 30mm Lens is such a great macro lens for product shots, don’t you think?
This new range from Chanel is called Le Mat De Chanel. It is the new Fall/Winter range set to hit stores super soon. The whole collection features a new style of packaging, in matte. Super sophisticated and chic, plus as the make up follows suit is creates a full Matte look that is very powerful and audacious.
The two eyeshadow palettes feature four shades each and as you can see, i’ve used both already. I’m so excited to try the blue in the Quiet Revolution but the Clair Obscur is absolutely going to be my every day Autumn eye colour! I think pairing this eye colour with the new Jumbo Lip pencil in Discrétion will be such a great look, they both scream Autumn, all soft brown and beige tones!
The next two i’ll be reserving for the festive parties and special occasions! Just look at these colours, they are stunning and i can’t even tell you how well they go on! A super special matte liquid lip ink that has staying power like no other. The two colours i have are Melancholia and Euphorie, the darker of the two, Melancholia will be so lovely to pair with fawn and tan coloured sweaters during the colder months! There is nothing better than a stand out lip when you’re dressing in colours that are toned down! These lips were made to be seen, for sure! Check out the rest of the colours in the this collection here.
As well as Discrétion the three other Jumbo Lip Pencils from Chanel AW18 collection are probably some of my most favourite reds. I’m usually terrified of red, i end up with it all over my teeth and it just becomes a complete lip stick disaster! But… i love these! The matte is really great and goes on so well. I feel like i’ve now got a red lipstick for each stage of the festive period too. A day red, afternoon red and evening red… is that a thing? If not it needs to be!
The one and only eye pencil that came is this one. Stylo Ombre et Contour in 12 – Contour Clair. How perfect is this colour for Autumn? I think it will create the perfect smoky eye for the season, it’s not too dark but dark enough to create an impact on an eye paired with a fawn or orange. Perhaps even a red low liner?
I’ve worn this make up a heap already and i cannot wait to really go to town with it this season. I always try to make an effort to put some make up on as i feel it really does change the day you have. When you feel nice and are confident in the way you look, you’ll have a great day. Plus i’m about to be a mum of two so i’ll be faking it till i make it for the foreseeable! These eye bags really will be Chanel, baby!
