Beat The Heat With Chanel Fall Makeup
Don’t be fooled by the heat wave that’s currently plaguing the northeast (it’s 99 degrees in New York right now—yes, you read right): Fall is on its way, at least insofar as the barrage of autumnal color collections that have begun hitting cosmetics counters this month. There are jewel toned-shadows, berry lipsticks, and deep shades of nail lacquer to be enjoyed en masse, but particularly exciting for us is Chanel’s latest offering. The plums, dark grays, and shimmering olive eye options are all there, paired with a surprisingly neutral lip palette of pinks and corals. The real standouts, though, come in the form of a three-piece limited-edition range of Joues Contraste Blush and, of course, a get-it-before-it’s-gone nail polish. Creative director of makeup Peter Philips devised Pink Explosion, Rose Temptation, and Plum Attraction to bring a unique flush to the face—Plum Attraction being our personal favorite for its unusually dark pigment. As for that polish, it’s Paradoxal, a metallic gray violet with a hint of shimmer. All four products are available for purchase online. Our suggestion: Buy now to play with them in the comfort of your air-conditioned home later.
