Chanel Soho Story Collection

CHANEL has created the Soho Store makeup collection to celebrate the reopening of the Soho boutique. The boutique is located in one of Manhattan’s trendiest neighborhoods which inspires a decidedly modern palette of nudes and pinks, as well as cult-worthy steel-greys. Translated to plain english…“It’s absolutely drool-worthy!”

Needless to say, the whole collection is all limited edition…

Also available in this collection:

Rouge Allure Laque – Stunt

Rouge Coco – stunning

Glossimer -Star

Eyeshadow Quad – Stupendous

Since this collection is meant to celebrate the Soho re-opening, you can purchase this collection from the Soho store or online.

Thoughts: Although the nail polishes look scrumptious in the bottles, I have a feeling the beautiful shimmers wont translate onto my nails and I am left with nothing but a dark  grey and dark purple nailpolish… The eyeshadow quad looks gorgeous – i spy a taupe shade paired with a lovely pink and grey… the Glossimer called Star! What a nice name!! I wonder if this collection is worth begging for a custom purchase from the states?? Perhaps this collection might make it to our shores some time later in the year??

For swatches, check out The Beauty Look Book – Lips, Nails, Eyes.

Happy Shopping!

UPDATED (September 28 2010): For UK readers, the Chanel Soho Story collection will be available exclusive to Selfridges from October 15 2010. Perhaps you might wish to dial 0207 318 3662 to reserve items. For ladies in Asia, I suggest calling up your local Chanel counters. I understand that the Soho Story Collection is launching on the same day as the new Vitalumiere Aqua foundation – October 1st.
