CHANEL Make-Up: The Colors of Autumn Equinox 2023

September 8, 2023

The Autumnal Equinox has long been celebrated as a time of balance and reflection, a moment when day and night stand in perfect equilibrium. This moment, suspended in time, heralds the beginning of autumn, a season cherished for its deep spiritual significance and radiant beauty. For Gabrielle Chanel, this season was more than just a transition in the natural world; it was her favorite time of the year, a season of enigma, straddling the balance between shadow and light, making it a perfect muse for CHANEL’s newest Beauty and Make-Up collection, which pays homage to the delicate beauty of this celestial event.

Inspired by the very spirit of the autumn equinox, CHANEL’s Beauty and Make-Up collection paints a tapestry of luminous shades and comforting tones, reminiscent of the season that Gabrielle Chanel held close to her heart.

DOUCEUR D’ÉQUINOXE Exclusive Creation two tone blushes:

An exquisite blush harmony combines intense shades with their delicate counterparts. These contrasts call to mind the play of light and shadow during the equinox, imparting a radiant, healthy glow and a luminous finish to the face. Celebrating autumn, the powder blush designs feature a blanket of leaves, with the iconic CHANEL double-C embossed, signifying the cyclical nature of seasons and the idea of rebirth and renewal.

ROUGE COCO BLOOM

Six captivating shades emerge in a palette of caramel beige, brownish rosewood, burnt sienna, coral red, true red, and blackcurrant. This is not just any lipstick; this is the birth of a new shine. It’s an ode to beauty in motion, a masterpiece created out of CHANEL’s meticulous research. At its heart, the composition of ROUGE COCO BLOOM is revolutionary. An ultra-adhesive agent ensures that the vibrant pigments stay put, delivering intense color and extra long-lasting hydration.

OMBRE PREMIÈRE LIBRE

The first ever loose eyeshadow by CHANEL is as fine as a puff of autumn wind. It transforms from a powdery softness to a creamy richness upon application, ensuring a smooth finish that mirrors the vibe of the season.

LE VERNIS is more than a nail polish. It’s jewelry for the nails,  with a protective and long-lasting design. The formula, rich in pigment and infused with camellia eco-ceramides—a natural ingredient crafted for CHANEL—delivers a brilliant, even lacquer. Its new flat, wide brush guarantees precise application with ease.

In essence, CHANEL’s Beauty and Make-Up collection for 2023 is a tribute not only to the autumn equinox but also to the very spirit of Gabrielle Chanel and her love for this season. It invites one to embrace the magic of fall, basking in the play of shadow and light, transition from one period to the next and playing with the contrasts of our personalities and of life.
