Feathers 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.

The 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 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!)
