Chanel Le Bi Phase Visage

Chanel Bi-Phase-2016_GIF

This advanced formula combines two phases, each with a key ingredient: the water phase offers the antipollution power of Blue Micro-Algae, while the emulsion phase gently delivers the fortifying benefits of Marine Salicornia extract. When the bottle is shaken, the two phases blend into a solution with exceptional makeup-removing power.

I suggest adding the Le Bi-Phase Visage into your regular skincare routine as an additional step. Le Bi-Phase Visage helps to remove makeup prior to cleansing and toning your face.

Use it daily as a no-rinse facial cleanser morning and evening, or as a traditional makeup remover to enhance your current ritual. Shake the bottle well before use. Apply to dry skin with a cotton pad, avoiding the eye contours. Do not rinse. Follow with your regular Chanel skincare.

Chanel Le Bi Phase Visage

While Chanel’s Le Bi-Phase Visage is used to remove makeup from the face, we still suggest using Démaquillant Yeux Intense for eye makeup removal as it is specifically formulated for use on the eye and is ophthalmologist tested.

Chanel Le Bi Phase Visage is suitable for all skin types. The mild, residue-free formula gently yet effectively removes impurities on skin’s surface, including even the most stubborn makeup and pollutants.

Discover Chanel’s Rouge Coco Gloss with Lily-Rose Depp

chanels-rouge-coco-gloss-with-lily-rose-depp

On Wednesday, Maison Chanel revealed the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis as the face of its new makeup line. The young star, who turns 18 in May, fronts advertising for Chanel’s new Rouge Coco Gloss, and it’s a must-watch… The Franco-American actress shows off her radiant smile in a playful and sensual campaign from Mario Testino.

After being named as the face of Chanel’s No.5 L’Eau fragrance in 2016, Lily-Rose Depp is captured in an ad campaign for Chanel’s new beauty collection, Rogue Coco Gloss. The beauty ambassador — who recently walked down the brand’s Spring/Summer 2017 runway during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week — highlights the coveted collection in a short video (above), while featuring the different shades of the must-have beauty product. Created by Lucia Pica, Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer, the luscious glosses have a melting gel texture thanks to a ‘hydraboost complex’ formulation, comprising natural waxes of jojoba, sunflower and mimosa, plus a natural coconut oil derivative, to help achieve that long-lasting colour.

Rouge Coco Gloss comes in 24 colors with a variety of effects to suit all tastes, styles and moods, from nude to chocolate brown and several shades of pink, red and purple.

The range of colors and textures is further expanded thanks to three accompanying top coats: a clear topcoat with added sparkle, a translucent neon orange-yellow and a deep black.

To celebrate the release of the Rouge Coco Gloss collection, Maison Chanel is set to launch a series of colourful stickers that will be available to download from the App Store from March 1, 2017. The Chanel Rouge Coco Gloss collection will be available at all leading beauty counters across the world from February 24, 2017.

 

 

 

 

Chanel Huile de Jasmin

Maison Chanel launches Huile de Jasmin in March 2017, based on the original formula created by Gabrielle Coco Chanel back in 1927. Huile de Jasmin is a revitalizing facial oil with jasmine extract, formulated to make the skin look luminescent. It represents a reinterpretation of the precious emblematic treatment from the history of the house and from Coco’s own beauty counter.

chanel-huile-de-jasmin-old-new

The oil nourishes and repairs the skin, made of many, mostly natural oils and ingredients. The formula transmits its revitalizing properties to the skin, providing comfort and elasticity. Jasmine oil from Chanel’s own fields in Grasse is the main ingredient, paired up with camellia, limnathes alba and jojoba oil. The jasmine that is used is collected by hand on the day of its emergence to preserve all its properties.

chanel-huile-de-jasmin-new

The facial oil provides a moisturizing and strengthening effect, protecting the skin’s barrier and provides it with comfort and suppleness. In addition, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Maison Chanel did a clinical evaluation on 33 women to test the product. The results are:

  • The skin looks immediately brighter: + 22% . Day after day, it increases its luminosity: +31% after one month.
  • Wrinkles and expression lines are less visible. The skin is visibly smoother: + 34%.
  • The skin is hydrated and protected. The complexion shines naturally, sublimated by a subtly satin finish.

You can use Huile de Jasmin daily or as a cure treatment, according to the needs of your skin. It can be used directly on the clean skin, under a serum or a cream, for women who feel their skin is tired and lacks vitality, or combined with a cream, for women looking for additional comfort in a single application, or even with a foundation, for a touch of luminosity.

The ultimate chic packaging screams luxury, reminiscent of the original one from the 1920s. The product is (sadly) a limited edition.  It will only available on Chanel.com and in Chanel’s own boutiques from March 2017. A 50 ml bottles will be around $120.

Oh, Boy: Chanel launches new fragrance

16_boy_chanel

Fashion designer, Coco Chanel is well known around the world for her fabulous fashion line worn by all the A-list celebrities. What many people don’t realise is, Coco (who’s real name is Gabrielle) was raised in an orphanage which is where she was taught her sewing skills.

After having a brief career as a singer she became friends with, Étienne Balsan and stayed with him just outside of Paris where she lived as a ‘kept woman’ in his mansion, and this is where she began to mingle with Balsans wealthy companions and this is when she met a man who would change her life forever, Arthur ‘Boy’ Capel.

Arthur Edward Capel loved to read

Captain Arthur Edward ‘Boy’ Capel (1881 – 22 December 1919) was an English poloplayer, possibly best remembered for being a lover and muse of fashion designer Coco Chanel.

Born in Brighton, Sussex, Arthur Capel was a ship-owner, politician, tycoon and polo player . He was the son of Arthur Joseph Capel, a British shipping merchant, and his French-born wife, the former Berthe Andrée A. E. Lorin (1856-1902), and he had three sisters. But today he is better known for his 9 year love affair with Coco Chanel.

His affair with Chanel apparently began in 1909, when he became acquainted with the then 26 year old mistress of his friend Étienne Balsan. In that time he was already an apparently wealthy self-made man and he supplied Chanel with financial backing, and financed Chanel’s first shops. His own clothing style, notably his blazers, inspired her to put a squared masculine touch on her classic clothing styles, and creation the Chanel look. If it wasn’t for Arthur’s money or style then Chanel would never had had the funds or fashion muse to make what is one of the most well-known designer brands in the world.

The couple spent much time together at fashionable resorts such as Deauville, but.. he was never faithful to Chanel. Their relationship lasted nine years, and even after Capel married in 1918, he continued his affair with Chanel until his death in late 1919.

Arthur tragically died in a car crash on Monday 22 December 1919, allegedly en route to a Christmas rendez-vous with Chanel. A roadside memorial was placed at the site of the accident, consisting of a cross bearing the inscription:

A la mémoire du capitaine Arthur Capel, Légion d’Honneur de l’Armée Britannique, mort accidentellement en cet endroit le 22 décembre 1919

He was buried with full military honours at Fréjus Cathedral, in the Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur region in southeastern France, on 24 December 1919. After his death Coco began wearing black during her grieving process and she told a friend that the world would mourn with her which is where the ‘little black dress’ evolved from, and why black is no longer tied in hand with association with death but more with elegance and class. Chanel claimed Arthur Edward ‘Boy‘ Capel was the love of her life.

An exceptional Fresh Aromatic fragrance infused with the timeless elegance

We were so busy waiting for Chanel’s reinterpretation of their No. 5 fragrance titled L’Eau (slated for a fall release) that we didn’t see this one coming at all! The new scent from Chanel is a unisex fragrance created by the house’s master perfumer Olivier Polge. It also becomes the latest (17th) addition to the Les Exclusifs collection and just like Misia (also an Olivier Polge creation), it was inspired by one of Chanel’s closest friends: Arthur ‘Boy’ Capel.  Gabrielle Chanel considered him as more than her soul mate; he was her double and her alter ego. Inspired by their love, Boy Chanel is a vibrant, perfectly balanced scent that challenges tradition and transcends gender.

My way of working on this fragrance was really not to try to make a unisex fragrance but really more to dive into men’s fragrance…and to show how well it could be worn by a woman. So it was not to try to create an in-between fragrance, but a very masculine fragrance. And — like many other things in life — gender is given by the person wearing it.

Olivier Polge

Boy is a masculine fougère with main accords of lavender and rose geranium sourced from the south of France. The composition also includes lemon and grapefruit, a note of rose, orange blossom, sandalwood and heliotropin, plus a hint of vanilla and musk accords. Like the others in the Les Exclusifs collection, it is contained in a simple rectangular bottle, and will become available worldwide this month in in two sizes, 75 and 200 ml Eau de Toilette.

You need this — and so does your boyfriend!
