Chanel Autumn 2015 Collection - Les Automnales // REVIEW

Can you believe that it has been over a year since my last Chanel seasonal collection post?! Never-the-less I am bringing them back, this time with the autumn 2015 collection (officially named Les Automnales). Yes, I am posting about autumn in August, but hey it's coming up fast, and as this collection only launched two days ago, I thought that it would be the perfect time to post!

The theme of the collection this year is all about the colours of the forest, those pretty browns, bronzes, deep nudes and reds. As a lover of light and fresh shades, there's a nice mix of those sorts of shades along with darker ones, so you are bound to find at least one product that catches your eye!

I'd say my favourite product is the Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in Tisse D'Automne. Its got four pigmented and stunning shimmery shades inside - a khaki, a gorgeous baby pink toned champagne, a dark bronze and an earthy green. I haven't had a chance to use this much, as I'm still clinging onto the last bits of summer and keeping to my lighter eyeshadow shades, but I can't wait to get more use out of it!

The Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Alezane is a pretty brown toned pink with a subtle gold shimmer! I love darker toned blushes over the autumn and winter because they are perfect for adding some warmth, without bronzing. As with all Chanel blushes, that I have tried, the pigmentation is great!

The best way that I can describe the Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in Pensive is a lovely salmony-dark nude-pink shade (I'm great at describing shades as you may be able to tell). It's like a dark lipstick for those who don't like dark lipsticks! I will have to be honest though and say that as somebody that very often gets dry lips, this one isn't really for me. You may all know how much I love my Chanel lipsticks, especially the Rouge Coco Shine formulation, but this one is quite drying and clings to any dry patches or lines in my lips - not an attractive look! I'd probably suggest trying a different shade from the collection.

When I've been wanting something that is a little more subtle than my typical black eyeliner I've been grabbing the Stylo Yeux Waterproof Long-Lasting Eyeliner in Pomme De Pin. This is a matte dark brown shade that's so easy to apply because you simply swipe on the soft and pigmented crayon, then give it a little blend - a perfect staple if you are in a rush! There's also a sharpener on the bottom of the crayon, which I only just discovered as writing that previous sentence, so that's a great little feature.

Will you be getting anything from the Chanel Les Automnales Collection?
