In a departure from the classic Chanel offerings, Global Creative Director of Chanel, Peter Philips has created the dark, vampy and mysterious Noirs Obscurs collection. Comprised of traditional jewel tones emerald, sapphire, ruby & violet infused with dramatic black. At first glance I thought 'I'm too old to be wearing Goth makeup' but the more I look at the pictures and think about it, I think it's damn sexy!
The Noirs Obscurs Collection includes:
Les Folies Noirs Eyeshadow Quad ($60.00)
Exceptionnel de Chanel: Noir Obscur and Inimitable: Noir Obscur, see my previous post here. Eyeliner in Demoniac, three new Rouge Allure lipsticks: all dark and vampy, Obscure, Maniac and Hysteria, a Aqualumiere Gloss in Furious, a sheer gold, three nail polishes in Diabolic, Forbidden and Vendetta. With names like these, it sounds more like The Matrix rather than the tweed suits of Chanel. However, no one does black like Chanel. I'm looking forward to checking out the collection in person this weekend at my local Chanel counter, I'll let you know then how appropriate and wearable it is. It certainly has me intrigued!
