Chanel’s Christmas/Holiday collection this year – Collection Libre Numéros Rouges – is a little different from previous years I feel. There is a glaring hole in the collection, where a beautiful highlighter used to sit in every Christmas collection. Instead, Chanel has chosen to focus on lips, an interesting approach. I actually love it, because it’s a) different and b) red lipstick LOL! I’ve said it often, and I say it again. Lucia Pica has done wonderful things for Chanel makeup in my view!
Because I found the collection a little disparate, I decided I’d not lump it all together in one post, but to split it up and focus on the different aspects of it that I find interesting.
Although the collection puts red lips at the forefront, I’m approaching it from the eyes, because they are the windows to the soul after all 😛
But no seriously, there is one product there that I want to highlight, and one product that I want to revise my opinion a little on. I shared some preliminary thoughts on the collection during a live chat on Instagram and I think I’ve done one of the products a disservice (I do a weekly Instagram live chat on the weekend, if you were not aware, where we talk about any number of things, and I love answering questions and interacting in that short time we have. So join me, if you have not already!) Now, what is what? 😀
