Le Rouge Collection N°1 – Chanel

‘RED IS THE COLOUR OF LIFE, OF BLOOD, I LOVE RED’ – Coco Chanel

Only 1 day to go until Chanel’s global creative designer – Lucia Pica releases her most anticipated debut collection ‘Le Rouge Collection N°1’ in South Africa. She illustrates “The colour of life and death, love and desire, innocence and experience…” Contained within this colour of extremes are many metaphors for the emotional dichotomies of life.

When I Think Of Red I Think Of:

Energy

War

Danger

Strength

Power

Determination

Passion

Desire

Love

Once again, the ever-so famous French luxury brand has outdone themselves with this new collection. The range consists of a variety of products — an eye shadow palette, six lip colors, nail varnishes, blush, mascara, lip liners and long-lasting eyeliners.

I absolutely love how they have interpreted the colour on a whole new level, featuring products that allow customers to achieve a full makeup look.

Who Is Lucia Pica?

Lucia was appointed as the global creative make-up and colour director for Chanel at the start of 2015.  Known for her use of bold, jewel-like colours and statement lipsticks, Pica is part of a new generation of artists disrupting the make-up industry.

Pica is often praised for her innovative use of colour palettes and thoroughly modern take on beauty, as well as her talent for creating natural, fresh-faced looks and impossibly dewy skin.

Where Did The Inspiration Come From?

Pica documented her creative journey and different sources of inspiration associated with the color red.

Below are some of her inspirations:

The Collection:

These luxuriously sleek colours aim to bring about a certain mood which is why they chose the very mysterious and fiery Kirsten Stewart in their campaign.

Chanel

Joues Contraste Blush 

Unique powder blusher offers buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic, and imparts a flattering radiance to cheeks. Remarkably silky texture ensures easy application of seamless colour. Applied high on the cheekbone, or near the eyes, it instantly ‘lifts’ and softens the face for a more youthful look

Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick

Elevating matte to a new elegance, this next-generation, non-drying matte lipstick glides on lips with intensely rich, long-wearing colour and a sumptuously soft, velvet matte finish.

Chanel

Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long Lasting Eyeliner (Ltd Edition)

Waterproof, smudge-proof eyeliner delivers long-lasting definition with a twist of the wrist: Colour winds up when you need it, winds down when you don’t. Gentle, soft, silicone-enriched formula delivers smooth, even lining. A built-in sharpener at the opposite end detaches for quick refreshes.

Chanel

Le Vernis Long-wear Nail Colour

The newly-renovated 5-free formula features Bioceramics and Ceramides to improve the quality of nails. In an arresting palette of 15 trend-setting shades, including bestselling cult favorites and daring new colours.

Chanel

“Reinterpreted by Lucia Pica, red upsets the codes. Through the depth of a nail polish, the frankness of a lipstick and the intensity of an eyeshadow, makeup gives women a new power.”

More Chanel Launching: August 29

Yes! There is more.

Chanel is launching their latest “Ultrawear Flawless Foundation” called Le Teint Ultra Tenue.

With its silky texture so light that it blends perfectly with each contour of the face, so comfortable that it liberates your every move, Le Teint Ultra Tenue is every woman’s “must have”. This foundation comes in a Compact Powder as well as a Fluid form.

The Innovation Behind Le Teint Ultra Tenue:

The compact goes beyond perfect coverage and a radiant skin tone thanks to a new technology developed by Chanel Research: Perfect Light Diffusion Complex. This complex combines two new-generation powders: 2-in-1 hemispheric powders that diffuse and reflect light, and soft focus powders that diminish the appearance of pores.

On one hand the transparent hemispheres of the 2-in-1 hemispheric powders catch the light, and on the other hand each is coated with smaller spheres to diffuse a radiant glow. The complex structure of this new formula largely diffuses the light in all directions for reinforced radiance and an instant blurring effect.

More About Le Teint Ultra Tenue:

– A perfectly controlled matte finnish

– Long wearing control

– A velvety texture for a second-skin sensation

– Proven effectiveness

– Comes in a large variety of shades
