For the Holiday 2019 Collection, Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Creative Make-up and Colour Designer found inspiration in one of Gabrielle Chanel’s particular — and perhaps unexpected — penchants: her love of ornaments. After all, while Mademoiselle Chanel famously pioneered a “less is more” approach to elegance, she was equally fascinated by aesthetic opulence: by the deep lacquer of Chinese Coromandel screens, or the shimmering gold leaf that decorated her apartment. Now her paradoxical proclivities are reflected through Les Orenements De Chanel, which showcases festive grandeur for the modern age.

1 _ Éclat Magnétique de Chanel
A luminous backdrop of angelic skin sets the scene for holiday splendour and an elegant incandescence amplifies the depth of colour to come. Its blendable texture melts into the skin to seemingly illuminate from within. The lustrous, pearlescent shine can be used to highlight the contours of the face for a gently sculpting, radiant effect.

2 _ Le Vernis
With long-lasting, high-shine shades that reflect the Holiday palette, the dramatic pigmentation of Le Vernis offers the perfect final touch to the look of the season.

3 _ Rouge Allure
In celebration of the Holiday Collection, the iconic Rouge Allure is revamped through the introduction of six luxurious, luminous shades suspended within graphic, gold-edged limited- edition packaging. Precisely balanced between grandeur and modernity, the opulence of each shade is offset by the sharp preciousness of its surrounds.

4 _ Ombre Première
A harmonious series of sumptuous shades, each eye product encapsulates the spirit of the season with a lustrous effect fit for festive indulgence. Decadent, silken shadows with a creamy powder texture, exclusively etched with the form of a Chanel button, Ombre Première can be blended or layered, diffused or defined. Fairer shades can envelop chocolate browns or gunmetal khakis in a “veil of light”: lightly pressing over the center of the lid with a soft peach or antique gold will offer a modern dimension to deeper hues.

5 _ N°5 L’Eau
Mirroring the Chanel holiday campaign directed by Jean-Paul Goude, this festive diorama for the legendary N°5 fragrance is sure to bring amazement to whomever receive.

Delicately open the minaudière clutch and discover the divine iconic lipstick, adorned with an exclusive sequinned band, along with five refills in best-selling shades and each stick engraved with the Dior logo.

2 _ 5 Couleurs Happy 2020
Dedicated to the year-end festivities, the 5 Couleurs Happy 2020 palette is
for a winter packed with the punch of sparkling colour in an exclusive edition. Immediately recognisable, its imprinted design recreates the magical effects of fireworks bursting with a colourful Happy 2020 motif, featured in two palettes to celebrate the holiday season.

3 _ Diorific Lipstick Happy 2020
Admire the precious metal and watch this lipstick shine: dressed to the nines, Diorific Lipstick Happy 2020 dons a sparkling gown that dazzles in the spotlight. Four elegant lip shades defy convention.

4 _ Diorific Vernis
The finishing touch of this celebratory look, Diorific Vernis enhances colours and emotions to ring in the New Year with a bang – a “fireworks” top coat with multicoloured glitter, worn on bare nails or over lacquer for a truly dazzling manicure.
