For those obsessed with horoscopes, nature-lovers who yearn for a glimpse of a starry, starry sky, and dreamers alike, this is one CHANEL Beauty collection you’d absolutely adore. It’s time we counted our lucky stars, because here comes the latest limited edition Rouge Allure Velvet La Comète, the house’s most iconic lipstick, now dressed in a case inspired by the constellations.
If you find the star motif familiar, that’s because it has appeared in Mademoiselle Chanel’s first-ever CHANEL High Jewelry collection in 1932, titled “Bijoux de Diamants”, which saw comets, constellations, and other star-inspired jewellery pieces, best known for a glittering necklace that’s worn draped around the neck.
Our new-century lipsticks then reinterpret the archival piece via Rouge Allure cases embossed with that signature comet in gold. For the formulas, expect a luminous velvet-finish texture in eight new shades, of contemporary browns, reds, and rosewoods that boast gold or bronze shimmer.
To accompany their launch, we’ll also be privy to two shades of the Blush Comète, a powder blush pressed with a design that makes full use of lenticular printing. This nifty technique allows for an optical illusion, of either a comet or the double C logo depending on the angle you’re holding, and looking at, the compact.
