Chanel is nothing if not consistent: House codes permeate each and every creation born from the French luxuriate, especially within the beauty métier.

Known for its sophisticated take on colour, texture and tone, Chanel Beauty marries timeless emblems (a red lip, an inky wing) with modern themes, but there’s always a story; a reason why.

“Searching for a new neutral? Warm, melting coral is this season’s new hue. Concentrate your colour at the lash line, before blending outwards.”

Few limited launches detail this better than Les 4 Ombres Tweed, an eye collection inspired by the emblematic fabric that was a longtime favourite of Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel. She initially used the textile almost a century ago, drawn to its irregularity and casual elegance. Since this time, it’s become synonymous with the house of Chanel, shown in almost every collection in some way, be it a bag, a hat or a two-piece suit (which is more or less the stuff of fashion legend).

This enduring obsession has been translated to the iconic Les Ombres Eye Palette, an eyeshadow quad that was first launched in 1982. Designed to ‘dress the eyes in tweed’, the shadow itself has been reimagined with a tweed-like pattern, giving the product a multi-dimensional quality that almost renders it too beautiful to use. There are four shades in the lineup: Tweed Fauve, Tweed Cuivré, Tweed Pourpre and Tweed Brun et Rose. Rich in pigment but soft in texture, each shade glides on with ease, and can be layered for a bold, brilliant finish.

Here, Chanel makeup artist Filomena Natoli has used the collection to create a myriad of eye looks: a warm, molten coral, a graphic brunette wing, a smoky, satiny mauve and a soft pink haze that extends well into the brow. Rich, silky and infallible in terms of coverage, Les 4 Ombres Tweed can be worn alone or – much likes its namesake – blended for a customised finish.

And because at Chanel, details matter, each palette also comes dressed in its very own keepsake tweed pouch crafted by embroiderers at Maison Lesage, a part of the hallowed Métiers d’Art since 2002.

To frame the eyes dressed in tweed it had to be Noir Allure, the latest iteration in Chanel’s mascara category. It’s an innovation that has several defining characteristics, from its conditioning formula to innovative packaging – not to mention, the rich black hue. The slick, glossy tube opens with a single click – a feature that’s patented – revealing a golden handle and bold burgundy applicator (a nod to the inner burgundy leather lining of Chanel’s iconic 2.55 bag). Not only does it look phenomenal, but is also airtight, preventing the product from drying out.

Enriched with conditioning extracts like beeswax, rice wax, vitamin B5 and carnauba wax, Noir Allure softens each lash and provides essential nourishment, ensuring a long, comfortable wear. The comb-style wand is slim and flexible, working to separate, thicken and curl for unmatched volume and length. And then there is the shade: a deep, opaque black that’s bold and magnetic. It’s easy to conclude that black is black, but one inky swipe of Noir Allure, with its power and vibrancy, will prove you wrong. Natoli likes to apply a few coats of Noir Allure for full, fanned-out lashes. Because the formula is light, it’s easily buildable, and can be layered to your desired level of intensity, as well.

And now that makeup is back on the agenda, there’s never been a better time to enjoy both the limited tweed collection and Noir Allure mascara. Natoli has even provided all the inspiration you could ever need in the surrounding images.
