Chanel Makeup Fall 2008 Collection

You already know, I’m sure, with summer looking over the shoulder, everyone’s getting into tan business.

When I came across these pictures, I was truly convinced it was a summer special from Chanel. I was so wrong! It’s the Chanel Makeup Collection for fall! If you believed we were safe from metallic, now here’s Chanel saying not!

Chanel Fall Makeup Collection

Fall Makeup is all about gold. Said to be inspired by Coco Chanel’s apartment with all the brown, bronzes and gold shades, the collection is due in July and contains a $30 Gold Fiction (nail polish), $56 Facettes D’Or (loose powder), $26 Gold Light Glossimer (lip gloss) $27 Rouge Hydrabase (in copper, plum, coral) $56 Shadow Eye Palette (gold, coffee, ivory, dark green).

I think it’s not that important that an average polish from Chanel is around $20 and this special fall one is $10 more…Is it now? You see, they’ll try to convince you it’s a fashion special, but I think it’s a recession special…

Natalia Vodianova Chanel Makeup Fall Collection

So ladies, hurry up on that black and blue bottles, the new black is gold! And the new blue is Kaléidoscope (shiny green gold). Sounds like a lizardous fall chez Chanel.

Ready to follow (all things to be said – I find Natalia’s pose for this campaign rather strange. Like she would be bored to impossible)?

I don’t mind the premium.. because all of the chanel range is of excellent quality, and is always bang on trend matching this falls fashions. I am a huge fan of their nail polish’s and and i don’t think that the $10 (£6) increase is that much of a problem.

Tasha, out of curiosity what does the Chanel polish that other nail polishes cannot? (I only use professional nail lacquers, I had a Chanel – pink ballerina I think it was called – but didn’t impress me much)
