Exceptionnel de Chanel Collection Is All About Smoky Blacks!

Most of you are already familiar with the gold-based hues of Chanel fall 2008 makeup collection. The collection has hit the shelves in the US earlier this month. I stopped by Chanel counter last week to check out the fall makeup created by Creative Director Peter Philips. It is actually a beautiful collection. But since Chanel summer 2008 collection has brought us warm bronzy shades, I wasn't thrilled with the predominantly golden tones of its fall collection. I was hoping the fall makeup would come up with some splashes of cool colors.

Chanel just launched an additional collection, namely, Exceptionnel de Chanel Collection. This collection was launched in Asia last month and is mainly deep black and pure white with beautifully coordinated colors of silver and gray. I am glad Chanel didn't disappoint me after all. The collection includes:

Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow: #93 Smoky Eyes
Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow: #69 Black Star & #70 Platine
La Ligne de CHANEL Professional Eyeliner Duo: Noir-Lame
Exceptionnel de Chanel Intense Volume And Curl Mascara:
Smoky Noir, Smoky Marine, Smoky Brun and Smoky Violine

Le Stylo Sourcils Waterproof (limited-edition release in Asia):
#10 Light Brown
, #20 Brown and #30 Grayish Brown

The collection conveys the sexy and seductive mood of early fall. The array of cool-toned shades looks beautiful. I love the color combination of black, silver and white eye makeup colors! Deep blacks give definition and depth to the eyes, and makes them appear bigger. Silver and white eye shadows add light and dimension to the eyes, making the eyes look more youthful.

According to the press release, Le Stylo Sourcils Waterproof eyebrow pencil is a limited-edition release for markets in Asia.

The collection is not available in the US at this moment except the Exceptionel de Chanel Intense Volume And Curl Mascara in Smoky Noir. I haven't seen the collection on the Chanel US and Europe websites. I am hoping this collection will be available outside Asia. To Chanel cosmetics, please don't keep us waiting too long!
