CHANEL : Noirs Obscurs Collection 2009

Chanel Noirs Obscurs Collection

The Fall trend of the black lips and eyes has become a part of Chanel’s new launch : Noirs Obscurs – Ultra-modern makeup shades which are edgy, yet elegant iterations of the colour black.

I am LOVING the Quatuor Boutons De Chanel eyeshadow quad ($60) !!! The colors are very rich and sultry and unfortunately I may have caught this collection too late (or too early) since I can’t find any information on this quad or where to get it. Not even the Official Chanel website has info on it.. WTF? So help me out, peeps. If you find it, create a comment below and post a link. Thanks!

Ohh la la.. I’m gonna bite ya!

Gimme that quad, now!! I think only really hot people with good lighting can get away with the whole black lipstick look and be considered “classy”. The three new limited edition lip colors ($30) are: Maniac, Hysteria and Obscure. All dark and rick hues. The new gloss, Furious, is quite pretty and is part of the Aqualumiere gloss collection ($27); which means it is really lightweight and sheer with high shine.

Let me know what you think of this collection! It’s pretty daring!

  1. First:LOVE your blog! The tutorials especially are awesome!

    Aaaannnd…personally, I agree with black lipstick being really hard to pull off, BUT…

    I think that anyone could probably be able to put black lipstick to good use if they blend it with their fave red lippie. Instant vamp look.

    And for straigh-up black lips, it could probably work as being edgy but not halloweenish if you pair it with very simple eyes. Nothing smoky. Just a bit of liner and mascara.
