Women over 40 beauty, skincare, fashion, fitness and lifestyle, Keeping it Real

Chanel has gone and done it again – one of my all time favorite collections this season.  It is beyond beautiful – it is stunning!

The eye palette has won me over this season.   On the photo shown there is the photo by Chanel and the one by my own camera.   Slightly different colors coming through on the photos, but beautiful none the less.

The colors in Beiges de Chanel $56, are a creamy vanilla, a pale golden creamy shimmer, a khaki with slight shimmer and a chocolate with golden flecks. This beautiful palette is not just a “holiday palette”.  It can be used daily and create a wide variety of looks from neutral to smoky to intense smoky.   When I wore these colors I had 3 comments that day at work saying my eyes looked beautiful!   Now if that’s not an endorsement, I don’t know what is!

OK I guess I should get on to the rest of the holiday collection.   There is the Gold Highlighting Powder $75 – shimmering gold for anywhere on your body.  Shimmer up those bare shoulders or daring décolleté.

If doing a more neutral eye, you can brighten up the lips – the Red Shine Glossimer lip gloss $26, is a way to get a bright lip without doing a full-on red.   Or lighten it up with Creme Gloss Lumiere $32, in Praline Rose or Canele. Or as another option, the Rouge Allure Satin Lipstick $30, in one of the four shades; Audace, Exaltation, Ardent and Nude.

The new cult favorite nail color is called Haute Chocolat in a creamy chocolate color with gold flecks.  Good luck trying to find it – it’s sold out already on most department store websites, but maybe you can find one at a secluded store.  But then, I’m not so sure it’s for the over 40 set.   We can leave that trend to our daughters.

Chanel also has some beautiful gift sets that I will share with you in a near future post.   My opinion overall – this is definitely not a collection you want to miss!
