Chanel introduces makeup that highlights your every movement with all the nuances of shifting sensuality.

May 16, 2018


With the puzzling and crystalline reflections of water, the illusive afterglow of sun-kissed skin, the intriguing voluptuousness of transparent organza voile, the Chanel Cruise 2018 makeup collection is inspired by the enigmatic sensuality of shadow, light and sheer effects.

Lucia Pica offers this summer her vision of a mysterious yet audacious glamour, suggesting more than showing, by playing with colors and light layers. Milky pink, gentle aqua, gold and bronze are combined to create the perfect palette of dream-like summer hues, each inspired by the textures of Summer: warm air, rippling water, hazy light filtering through a window.

“It’s really about the application,” says Lucia Pica of her brand-new vision of Summer beauty, “and how to transform that glamorous feeling of Summer into something that is still striking, but feels more transparent; more as if it really becomes a part of the skin.”

Freely applied in delicate layers or harmoniously distributed, the gold and bronze light reflecting hues of the PALETTE ESSENTIELLE ÉTÉ enhance and accent skin with a magnetic summer glow while the intense red blush awakens the face with a sophisticated touch. L’EAU TAN progressively deepens the beauty of suntan, leaving a fresh and invigorating fragrance imagined by Olivier Polge for the occasion.

With LES 4 OMBRES, those strong colors are subtly toned down once applied, illuminating the eyes with warm and slightly metallized tints, contrasting with the refreshing vibrations of LE ROUGE CRAYON DE COULEUR and the half-tone tenderness of LE VERNIS shades.

The collection will be available as of June 1st, 2018 at all Chanel beauty counters.
