CHANEL Beauty Gives Us An Exquisite Équinoxe Makeup Collection For Fall

Sweater weather, falling leaves, and perhaps a pumpkin spice latte or two, these romantic reminders of Fall are joined by CHANEL’s latest Fall-Winter 2023 makeup creations, which aptly capture the transitional season via the limited edition ÉQUINOXE DE CHANEL collection.

The series is an ode to the equinox, particular the moment when the last rays of Summer’s warm sun give way to the dramatic colours of red, orange and ochre, which heralds the beginning of Autumn. Similarly, warm, earthy shades or shimmery coppers reign freely across CHANEL’s makeup, which sees airy loose eyeshadows, equal in both intensity and a subtle satin sheen, and a duo of blushes, all paired with the subtle Rouge Coco Bloom.

The limited edition OMBRE PREMIÈRE LIBRE, $54.

The OMBRE PREMIÈRE LIBRE, for instance, is a new creation, touted as a loose eyeshadow with a fine, airy texture. These give us intense colour and a satin finish ideal for soft makeup looks, and are housed in gradient-effect glass bottles with a built-in sponge-tip applicator for us to make the most of their creamy texture when gliding over skin. There are also six natural, earthy shades to warm up to: a satiny hazelnut brown, deep walnut brown, warm burnt sienna, followed by a luminous, orangey copper, caramelised garnet, and an intense aubergine.

The limited edition DOUCEUR D’ÉQUINOXE, $104.

Elsewhere, these DOUCEUR D’ÉQUINOXE powder blushes, distinguished by an embossed leaf pattern and double C logo, bring that same intense-yet-delicate colour to the cheeks. A muted coral and beige palette energises the complexion, while the rosy beige and mauve combination gives off a soft healthy glow.

The makeup look is complete with either of these six new shades of the ROUGE COCO BLOOM, a hydrating and plumping lipstick that now sees shades of luminous coral, brownish rosewood and sienna. These pair perfectly with two vibrant LE VERNIS nail polish shades; one, a bright orange hue that echoes joyous summer, and two, a red-brown that ushers in Fall.

ROUGE COCO BLOOM, $62, in 6 shades.
The limited edition LE VERNIS, $46.
