"Black, white, beige, gold, red. Lucia Pica, Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer for CHANEL, reinterprets the iconic colour codes of CHANEL. A palette of unexpected shades that invites women to follow their instincts and invent their own codes." - Chanel.com
I love it when Chanel releases a collection with a gorgeous blush as the centrepiece. It makes me pay attention instantly (and open my wallet). The Coco Codes Collection was released in early January but you know - I'm lazy and have only just found time to share some pretty pictures on here.
Apologies in advance for my less than spectacular photography. I just couldn't.
COCO CODE BLUSH HARMONY
This really is the star of the collection. This blush palette features four shades - white, beige, gold and red. It is really up to the user as to what shade you get - I prefer to mix all four evenly but you definitely focus on one half if you wanted to. All four shades blended together gives you a pinky-peach colour with soft shimmers. The texture of this blush is gorgeous - smooth and velvety. It is easy to blend and wears well throughout the day. This is limited edition (of course!).
LES 4 OMBRES - 278 CODES SUBTILS
I love eyeshadow palettes but really don't wear eyeshadow enough to justify purchasing them. This one however, I could not resist. The shades are just perfect and exactly what I love in an eyeshadow palette. All four shades work well together and create a very pretty eye look. The texture of the shadows is fantastic - smooth and easy to blend. Pigmentation is also really good and not powdery. This eyeshadow palette is limited edition (and I believe it has already sold out at a lot of counters).
STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF - 931 NOIR PETROLE & 932 MAT TAUPE
My love affair with the Stylo Yeux eyeliners continues. I just adore the formula of these and could not resist adding these two new shades to my stash. They are smooth and easy to apply and last all day on my eyes.
Noir Petrole is a deep olive-black with a soft shimmery satin finish. Mat Taupe is a matte, dark brown-taupe shade. I believe the former is limited edition whilst the later is permanent.
LE TOP COAT - BLACK METAMORPHOSIS
This top coat is a sheer black that you apply over another nail polish to change the colour. This plays into the idea of 'creating your own code'. In the promotional photos for this collection, the model is actually wearing the Blanc White polish with this top coat. It transforms the polish into a gorgeous grey. I haven't tried this yet but I am intrigued by it. This is also limited edition.
Overall, another lot of Chanel products I am very happy to add to my stash. But then am I ever unhappy with Chanel? Nope. I think this collection is very well put together and the products all work together. There was also lip products in this collection
The Chanel Coco Codes Collection is available now on Chanel counters. If there is anything you want to pick up, don't wait long!
