First Look: Collection Byzance de Chanel

Arising from the opulence and beauty of the Paris-Byzance fashion show, the Collection presents sumptuous makeup treasures inspired by the sparkle of rubies and precious metals.

Hot off the FedEx truck, these two beauties from Chanel's limited-edition Collection Byzance de Chanel arrived today. The Rigard Signé de Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Topkapi is stunning! What a beauty in the compact!

The Joues Contraste Or is also beyond beautiful. I can't wait to swatch these coveted pieces and use them. For now, enjoy the photos and call your nearest Chanel boutique if you want one of these or the other pieces in the collection. I understand it is only available at Chanel and Chanel.com.

Pretty cool, huh Rads?

Clarisse said...

GORGEOUS and STUNNING again!!!!We seem to be repeating those two adjectives again and again with Chanel, but they are accurate aren't they?

Can't wait to see your swatches! The eye palette is especially beautiful, but wondering if it is too warm for my skin tone.

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Clarisse!

Yes, we fall back on those adjectives to describe makeup that takes our breath away. :) I am swatching now, even though it seems really hot outside. Maybe it's my excitement.

The Contrast d'Or looks so perfect...as a highlighter, shadow, etc, etc. Only available on the boutique? You mean with the exclusive fragrances?

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Anonymous!

It's not too warm for mine. The colors are gorgeous on the skin!

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Lovethescents!

When I talked to Chanel a couple of months back, they told me it would only be available at the Chanel boutiques. However, I know some expect to see it at Nordstrom Seattle, so I am not sure at this point. If you want anything, your best bet is to try a Chanel boutique - quickly.

Wow...even for Chanel, this is a WOW. I'm stalking my Nordstrom to see if I can get my hands on this. You just got me totally over Chanel Fall.

Thank you for that, I guess? LOL.

The eye palette looks beautiful! They are available from Chanel website as well. The red blush looks nice on the picture, but I'm concerned it might be too intense

Charlestongirl said...

Hi Nina!

Your timing is impeccable. I was just posting that update. Thanks much for letting everyone know. I can always count on you eagle-eyed friends.

Charlestongirl said...

Shannon, don't stalk Nordies. Get thee over to Chanel!

Nina said...

Yay! I just ordered the quad! Still debating on the Or JC...

Rads said...

Oh, I want to see the swatches of that blush...I missed that..don't know how!!

Charlestongirl said...

The rouge one, Rads? It's pretty dark. Courtney at Chanel Soho and I both have very light skin, and she said the only way she could wear Rouge would be extremely lightly. I didn't think it was a good buy - for me.

Thank you for the update!
Golden blush reminds me of the highler D'Or. Is it the same?

lovethescents said...

Thanks, Charlestongirl! I'll call the boutique asap :-)

Lena said...

Have you heard anything about the lipstick? Is it a dark one for you too?

Rads said...

Yes, the Rouge one..oh, I would love it then...pretty dark is perfect for me :D I need a lot of patience and puppy faces if I have to get that blush :D

Tracy@Beauty Reflections said...

WOW. I haven't seen anything so beautiful in makeup in a long time!

Charlestongirl said...

Lena, that red is "not me." Most definitely not me. :)

Charlestongirl said...
