Chanel Holiday 2014_Collection Plumes Precieuses de ChanelAugtober, Augvember… bah. A little holiday makeup cheer isn’t so out of place, then is it? So let’s have a peek at the Chanel holiday 2014 Collection Plumes Precieuses de Chanel, due at the beginning of November via and as well as Murale.

chanel holiday 2014: collection plumes precieuses de chanel

Chanel Holiday 2014_Camelia de Plumes illuminating powder compactFeathers and diamonds inspired the Chanel holiday 2014 Collection Plumes Precieuses de Chanel. The palette: silvery white, white gold and cool greys with a soft peach for subtle warmth and an aren’t-we-fabulous killer red for glamourous lips and nails.

Chanel holiday 2014_Camelia de Plumes illuminating powderThe star item in the Chanel holiday 2014 collection is the shimmering Chanel Camelia de Plumes Highlighting Powder ($76). Aptly named Platine, the compact’s surface features a feather motif shaped like a camelia, Coco Chanel’s signature flower. Looks a bit more like an art-deco representation of giant palm fronds, perhaps, but lovely. A sheer platinum with a trace of gold, the illuminator is designed for use in the usual places: cheekbones, decollete — a dusting on bare shoulders is always pretty too.

Chanel Holiday 2014_eyeshadow palette Les 5 Ombres de Chanel Oiseaux de NuitThe Chanel holiday eyeshadow palette — Les 5 Ombres de Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit ($70) — features five pretty shades: icy white, pale lavender grey, deep purple grey, black and antique gold.

As well as the Chanel Oiseau de Nuit eyeshadow palette and Envol eyeshadow, the Chanel holiday 2014 collection includes a waterproof eye pencil in Or Blanc, a white gold ideal for lining the lower waterline for an instant bright-eyes effect.

Oh, here it is: the Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof in Or Blanc ($30).

Chanel Holiday 2014_Chanel Joues Contraste in Caresse_limited editionFor cheeks, the Chanel holiday 2014 Collection Plumes Precieuses de Chanel includes one powder blush, Chanel Joues Contraste in Caresse ($48), a pretty peach with a soft pearlized silver shimmer.

Chanel Holiday 2014_Rouge Allure Lipstick in Volage limited editionThere are two lipsticks in the Chanel holiday 2014 Collection Plumes Pecisieuses de Chanel lineup. This is Chanel Rouge Allure in Volage ($40), a satin fresh peach for nights you want your eyes to be the focus.

Chanel Holiday 2014_Rouge Allure Velvet La Flamboyante lipstickAnd this is Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet in La Flamboyante ($40) is a glamorous, knock0ut-red matte.

Chanel Phenix 687 Le Vernis_Chanel Holiday 2014Also part of the collection is red nail colour as fiery as the La Flamboyante lipstick. This Chanel Le Vernis in Phenix ($29) is “poppy-red beautifulness,” says Karen Mani-Geek.

UPDATE: Here’s how Chanel Phenix nail colour measure up to two similar polish shades:

Chanel Phenix Comparison Swatch

Our manigeek, Karen, compared Chanel Phenix to OPI Coca-Cola Red and OPI Race Red from the OPI Mustang collection, and shot it in three different exposures to show differences. Of the three, Chanel Phenix and OPI Coca-Cola red are closest. Not identical, but “98.5% kind of close,” says Karen.

The entire Chanel holiday 2014 collection is limited-edition and scheduled to hit counter November 2nd at, and Murale. In the meantime, is there anything from the Chanel Etats Poetiques Fall 2014 collection that calls to you?

Whaddya think? Do you use highlighting powder? The eyeshadow palette will enhance blue eyes, green eyes, hazel eyes and brown — does it interest you? Oh, and do you line your lower waterline with shimmery pale pencil already? (I do! Wakey-wakey!)

Ooh lala…be still my Chanel-addicted heart! I’ve been dying for some more detailed photos of this collection. I think my wallet is in for a world of hurt.:)


Janine 19 August 2014 at 1:01 pm

I know — the Chanel Camelia de Plumes illuminating powder and the Chanel Oiseaux de Nuit eye shadow palette are a bit on the pricey side. Poor wallet!


Jess 20 August 2014 at 9:50 am

Yeah…so far I count eight (!!!) items I want from this collection. Um, my loved ones don’t need any Christmas gifts this year, right? They’ll totally understand.


Emily 18 August 2014 at 2:03 pm

Oh #$%^&…I was hoping I wouldn’t fall in love with this collection! Oh well. ;)


Janine 19 August 2014 at 1:01 pm



Rosa 18 August 2014 at 3:24 pm

Hi Ladies, is the phenix polish a need? How does it compare to opi coca cola red or opi mustang red?


Janine 19 August 2014 at 12:58 pm

Hi Rosa!
Our manigeek Karen says it’s a 98.5% match between Chanel Phenix and OPI Coca-Cola Red. She doesn’t have OPI Mustang Red, but compared against OPI Race Red from the OPI Mustang collection. Not quite as close as the other two :-)


Rosa 19 August 2014 at 1:35 pm

Thanks Janine!


evo 18 August 2014 at 7:37 pm

I am in so much trouble!! I need to start saving


Janine 19 August 2014 at 1:01 pm

Good luck, evo!!


Amy 18 August 2014 at 8:19 pm

That eyeshadow palette is *spectacular* .


Janine 19 August 2014 at 1:02 pm

It’s lovely, isn’t it? And so nice for a wide range of eye colour!


Joelle 18 August 2014 at 10:55 pm

Wow! What a gorgeous collection! That illuminator is a piece of art. I would buy it to admire it and would be too scared to use it.


Janine 19 August 2014 at 1:02 pm

Notice my reluctance to do swatch photos, Joelle! I just can’t bring myself to mar the surface.


Danielle 19 August 2014 at 8:42 am

Love everything. I cannot wait until November 2!!


Janine 19 August 2014 at 1:03 pm

Mark your calendar! *grin*


Danielle 19 August 2014 at 1:04 pm

Confession: I already did :$ I actually put a reminder in my phone. #addicted


Janine 19 August 2014 at 1:19 pm

You’re hardcore! Amazing!!


WondersReviews 20 August 2014 at 2:14 am

Omg ! The highlighter is GORGEOUS !


WondersReviews 20 August 2014 at 2:16 am

An other hearbreaking to use piece of collection XD !
The white gold if interesting, need to give it a try.
Phénix Nail Lacquer is gorgeous too ! I think this one will come in my CC collection !


Natasha 20 August 2014 at 8:18 pm

I am a fan of the look of the blush. I am a blush…..addict…..Is Chanel blush special? I actually feel like Dior blush is special.


Janine 12 September 2014 at 2:45 pm

I think you’d deem Chanel blush special, Natasha — try the cream blush. #enabler


Rita 21 August 2014 at 1:11 am

I need a Caresse! (I’m actually wearing Frivole atm.) But I could never use that highlighting powder. So pretty.


Janine 12 September 2014 at 2:46 pm

I feel the same way about that highlighting powder, Rita! We’d need two, one to appreciate and one to use.


Michele 8 September 2014 at 9:15 pm

Ugh another red polish! Skip!


Meghan 1 October 2014 at 2:21 pm

Caresse is gorgeous, so is Envol & I’m loving the palette! Not sure how that highlighter would look on my skintone although it’s beautiful!


Yvonne 2 October 2014 at 1:20 pm

I got the highlighter powder yesterday, and it’s GORGEOUS!! I’m lucky I don’t have to wait another month :D


Alison 6 October 2014 at 12:53 pm

I’ve always liked the texture but never the color of these Chanel highlighters and special eye palettes (don’t like the baked ones.) Usually the palettes are too warm for me. I am a pale neutral warm and golden stuff makes me look yellow. But both the highlighter and the eye palette look like good colors for me. Is the quality of these products really special?


Janine 8 October 2014 at 6:53 am

I’m a neutral too, Alison, and I find warm shades do the same thing to me — it’s like they flip a yellow switch on my skin. As to whether I think these are special, oh yes re: the highlighter, and Chanel’s shadows improved with the release of the new set of quads inspired by tweed. I haven’t sampled this palette yet; I would hope it’s the same silky, pigmented, long-wearing consistency, but I’ll dip in to make sure and report back :-)


Alison 8 October 2014 at 12:14 pm

Thanks, Janine. I am always so grateful to find beauty bloggers with a neutral skin tone so that I am not oohing and ahhing over a blogger’s “picks” which I could never wear. Brown eye shadows make me look like a raccoon. Lots more latitude in lipsticks and blushes. Since I do have a number of cool toned shadows in the range of the Chanel palette, I was also wondering about the Dior Holiday eye palette in Golden Shock. I know the pink and burgundy one would make me look like I had a black eye. But the other one in an odd way almost seems neutral. Maybe I am kidding myself. What do you think?
