Synthetic De Chanel is the first Collection Libre created by global creative make-up and colour director Lucia Pica.
Usually this time of year everything is all sparkles and glitter but for this collection the main inspiration has been industrial shades. Rubber, glass and steel are key influences. It offers something totally different to the standard Christmas palette and it's right up our street.
Architectonic is a harmonious blend of five shades from matte blue and charcoal through to mirror grey. It has a mix of matte and satin shades which give a beautiful industrial metallic shimmer when layered together.
These shades blend better than any of the Chanel shades I have tested before. The pigment is strong and the creamy powder hybrid means they blend out like silk on the skin.
The Calligraphie De Chanel is a wonderful cream liner which comes complete with a mini angled liner brush. It is a hyperblack shade which resists both water and humidity. It dries off to a matte black precise finish.
Normally I would always use a longer brush to create my liner looks but the mini brush is great to keep with the product for touch-ups on the run.
I adore wearing pink on the cheeks whenever I wear a grey eye shadow so I was happy to see a vibrant pop of fresh pink for the cheeks. It breaks up the intense grey of the collection and gives your complexion a flushed rosy finish.
I have seen tons of vibrant pink in the shops this season and the nails for this collection are keeping up with this trend. There are three shades in liquid mirror, hyperrose Glass and pink rubber.
Beautiful collection which bucks the trend this Christmas. This collection is available from 4th November from all your usual stockists and online.
