Chanel Prepares To Gild the Lily With A New Collection
Forget about bronzer and highlights… it’s about to get a lot easier to look the part of golden summer goddess.
Taking a decidedly eastern tact, Chanel is set to launch their long-awaited 2012 Bombay Express Summer Makeup Collection… coming to your hot little mitts in June (That’s a scant 3 days away!) The collection naturally comes with some très French titles, including golden Poudre Compacte in Route de Indes de Chanel, charcoal Illusion D’Ombre Long Wear Luminous Eyeshadow in Nirvana, a rosy Joues Contraste Powder Blush called Brume d’Or, nude Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick in Empreinte, and golden Le Vernis Nail Polish in Diwali–so while Chanel isn’t exactly reinventing it’s formulaic wheel, they are adding a decidedly exotic look to it.
Originally created to pair with the luxe label’s Indian-inspired pre-fall runway look that we saw back in December, Bombay Express Summer Makeup Collection was presumably held back to build anticipation. Well, it worked. So here it is folks, let the summer gilding begin.
