Look for this little lot on counter on August 15th, because that’s when Chanel’s Autumn 2014 collection, Etats Poetiques, will land. This is a nicely elegant and restrained take on a collection in a season when hard-to-wear berried hues tend to feature so strongly. 

There are lots of limited edition and some permanent products make up the offer, so let’s check it out, eh?

Above is the limited edition Les 4 Ombres in Poesie, €50, in the new formula, and containing four gorgeously wearable colours. Love.


Two of the beloved Levres Scintillantes land at €27 each. Rose Rêvé​ is permanent and Songe, right, is limited. it’s a colour-transformer, in that it’s iridescent. Beside those is a new product: Ecritire de Chanel, €33.50, is a felt tip eyeliner pen in two shades, black and brown.


There are six Ombre Essentielle solo shadows, €28. Sensation and Palpitation (the two peachy shades) are limited edition and Hésitation, Exaltation, Pulsion and Admiration are staying put.

Now, nails. Le Vernis is €23 and will come in Orage, Secret and Atmosphere, which will be a limited shade.
