Chanel’s creative makeup designer Lucia Pica reimagines five iconic to Gabrielle Chanel shades – black, white, beige, gold and red – into a daring makeup collection Coco Codes. The U.S. launch date of the collection is scheduled for January 2017, when it hits the Chanel, Nordstrom, Harrods and Bergdorf Goodman stores.
Chanel Coco Codes range includes a palette of unexpected shades that frees women to invent their own codes of beauty. Shades of beige have been re-imagined for nails, while salmon pink and lively reds are seasonal spotlights for lips. Go-to additions to the Coco Codes spring selection for Pica are high-gloss lip hues and versatile vernis shades. Matte and satin textures collide in the versatile Coco Code Harmonie de Blush ($70) powder of peach, honey, caramel and pink-red shades. The intricate beauty product can double as a highlighter, bronzer or blush.
For Spring 2017, Chanel’s famous Les 4 Ombres ($61) eyeshadow palette includes rather highlighted shades. The powder is vibrant and inspired by the fashion house’s signature tweed. The palette itself consists of a light color, a deep shade and two medium tones for perfect blending and style.
Chanel Coco Codes spring 2017 makeup collection offers highlighting sheer lipshiner Chanel Rouge Coco Shine ($37) the will add the desired shimmer to lips. This lightweight, innovative lipstick with intensified pigments takes color and sheen to a new level of vibrancy. Moreover, the moisturizing formula of Rouge Coco Shine features a Hydratendre Complex to soften and hydrate lips for a fuller appearance.
With the nail varnish Lucia Pica liked the idea of “top coats” and the transformation of color through them. It is a continuation of the idea of layering that she began before, but here it is lacquering. The collection includes Chanel La Base (a base nail coat, used to strengthen nails that have been weakened), Chanel Le Vernis Culte (lasting nail polish) and Chanel Le Top Coat (created to polish the lacquered nails to perfection).
