Mother Nature seems to be giving us a Fall preview. Staff figured we'd go with it and take a peek at a selection of Chanel's Fall 2012 makeup collection. It's not one of her worst ideas, so...

The look: polished and defined. Love the nail colour -- it's almost black, with an undertone of red shimmer.

The archive-worthy item is a limited-edition sequin-imprinted Chanel Lumiere d'Artifices in Beiges ($75). Light and dark shades of beige work as eye shadows as well as face powder.

Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in 38 Premier Regard_Fall 2012 makeup

Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in 38 Premier Regard ($62) is a classic, beautiful neutral palette with shades of velvety beige, subtly shimmery taupe grey, soft pink and velvety deep black. It's not a shimmer-party palette, so it's worth the investment if it's your kind of colour story.

Chanel Soft Touch Eyeshadow in 93 Complice ($34) is one of several singles highlighted in the collection.

This was a tough shade to get right in Photoshop, let me tell you. Rouge Coco Shine lipstick in 73 Chic ($39) is a sheer beige sheen with fine gold shimmer.

The six shades are SPF 15 formulas, but lack a DIN in Canada, so the UV protection won't be listed on the packaging.
