Chanel Orient Extreme Collection Review

CHANEL revealed  the Orient Extreme collection at the Paris Shanghai Ready – to Wear show. This collection is limited edition and features three nailpolishes and a eyeliner and eyeshadow duo.


Ligne et ombre de Chanel ~ A jet black eyeliner (used with a damp brush) dries to a deep, matte finish, while the shimmering gold eyeshadow (with gold microglitter) imparts a lush, luminous glow. Gives a very sophisticated look. The eyeliner can create sexy winged eyes or if you wish a thin or thick line to emphasis your eyes. Sorely tempted to purchase this because the gold eyeshadow is just gorgeous – very shimmery with gold microgitter! Stunning!!

Le Vernis Illusion D’or ~ Stunning gold nailpolish with gold microglitter and holographic glitter.


Quite an interesting collection! I am seriously lemming the eyeshadow and eyeliner duo but am trying to resist cos I have eyeliners and gold eyeshadows, it’s just that my gold eyeshadows are nothing as pretty as Chanel’s Ligne et ombre de chanel.

I love nail polishes but I couldn’t quite figure what to do with a black matte nail polish until the sales assistant showed me how the nail polish should be applied. The three nail polishes are used together – first layer is Gold Lame, followed by Illusion D’or which just gives tons of sparkles and Black Velvet is used in the style of a French manicure – so it’s sparkly gold base with matte black tips…just like in the picture below…absolutely stunning and gorgeous!


I never realised how using just two shades – black and gold – can create such a stunning and gorgeous look! Check out this collection if you are into golds!!

Hope this helps! Please share your thoughts on this collection.
