CHANEL Makeup Confidential

For years, fashion and beauty devotees the world over have turned to Chanel for the latest trends. These days, the famed French fashion house has gained an almost cult-like following due to its uncanny ability to produce the season’s hottest colors in nail polish form. Since the release of “Jade” in Fall 2009, Chanel has consistently produced a batch of limited-edition nail polishes that sell out almost immediately after they are released. This season is sure to be no different. Peter Philips (Creative Director of Chanel Makeup) has unveiled a collection inspired by the “lustrous, natural beauty of pearls,” hence the collection’s name: Collection Les Perles de Chanel. The collection’s stand-out hue—aptly titled “Black Pearl”—has been dubbed the Spring 2011’s “it” color. Joining “Black Pearl” are two more limited-edition polishes: “Pêche Nacrée” and “Pearl Drop.”

To celebrate the release of the brand’s Spring 2011 Makeup Collection, Chanel has launched a brand-new website: Chanel Makeup Confidential. The interactive, user-friendly site features exclusive video content, including in-depth interviews with Peter Philips, backstage beauty looks, and a how-to video by makeup artist Lisa Eldridge featuring products from the new collection.
