Chanel Rouge Noir Collection


Sprint, don't walk, to the Chanel counter for this entire collection inspired by the iconic (and we mean that sincerely) Rouge Noir nail polish, first unveiled 21 years ago. (And we were there!) Sounds too Goth? Not at all: it's gorgeous. As a tribute to this bestselling enamel you'll find Le Top Coat Lamé Rouge Noir (a shimmering gold sparkle nail coat which adds a sheer, tinted glimmer and gleam to your deep red-black polish - or any polish, come to that), deep burgundy Le Volume de Chanel Volume Mascara (fantastic with blue eyes), a surprisingly flattering Illusion D'Ombre Long-Wear Luminous Eyeshadow, and the fabulous Lèvres Scintillantes Glossimer in Étincelle, which slicks lips with fabulous deep, shimmering wine-coloured shimmer.

There are paler and rosier elements within Rouge Noir, too - but we're attracted to the dark stars, ourselves: beautiful, mysterious - and utterly desirable.

Chanel Rouge Noir Collection is at£17 for Le Crayon Khôl Intense Eye Pencil in Rouge Noir to £44 for the four-colour eyeshadow Creation Exclusive Signé Particulier (shimmering gold, oyster, taupe and wine)
