If there’s one thing we love about the holidays — besides revelling in an abundance of festive activities and indulging in the barrage of Christmas food — it would have to be the flurry of new holiday beauty collections that brands, like Chanel, have in store for us. This year, Chanel making things a little extra by bringing not one, but two exclusive holiday collections to the table, alongside reinterpretations of its timeless classics.
For fans of Coco Chanel’s iconic N˚5, a gift from the Chanel N˚5 Holiday 2020 collection is the perfect beauty treat with its range of bathroom essentials that possess the perfume’s signature clean, abstract scent.
And if you’re wanting to add a dose of sparkle to your beauty look, the enchanting Les Chaines d’Or de Chanel – dreamed up by in-house global makeup and colour designer Lucia Pica – will do the trick.
Inspired by Mademoiselle Chanel’s symbolic use of pearlescent golden chains, Pica has beautifully incorporated that elegant motif into its packaging while the makeup palette comes with glamorous warm, gold-infused hues that echo the illuminating qualities of the well-loved necklace. (Think: eyeshadows and lipsticks with platinum or coppery shimmers and a gorgeous antique gold nail polish that’ll help you ace your holiday manicure too, to name a few.)
Below, we draw up our wish list.
