Les Ornements De Chanel (holiday 2019) will be dropping soon! … and since the sneak peek of this collection (here on Instagram), there’s been much interest for more swatches.
What I love about Chanel holiday is, the opulence. The packaging always has beautiful seasonal details and come in very wearable colours that the quintessential Chanel lover enjoys. They truly encapsulate the spirit of the season so well.
The 2019 holiday collection is inspired by Coco Chanels love for ornaments. Gold details that offset Gabrielles minimalistic black and white palette.
The powders are adorned with pretty Chanel button embossing, and curiously enchanting as much as the silky powders beneath.

Among the key pieces of this collection is this elegant eyeshadow quad. If you follow me here you’ll know i’m a fan of the Chanel eyeshadow formula. the texture is silky and always buildable for a range of looks from luminously airy to deep and mysterious. I find the mix in this seasons palette rich and devastatingly pretty.
There’s a deep gunmetal khaki, soft peach, a dirty golden khaki and a molten brown.
The highlighter Metal Peach is another obvious must have. It catches the light beautifully (as seen is the swatch). Silky, pigmented, with no noticeable glitter. This one’s a mix of gold and peach, something that will see you well past the holiday season without breaking a sweat.
Moving onto the other offerings for the eyes, there are two single shadows with the prettiest (button) embossing. I find Grandeur irresistible. A gold that combines a hint of peachiness but still muted and very wearable.
A statement on it’s own as a bold wash across the lids.
Here’s a closer look!
Saving the best for the last, the lips in focus this year are Rouge Allure. The packaging is gunmetal with a simple edging of gold. The colours are ultra wearable, with literally something for everyone.
My choice surprisingly are the rich berry tones. A slight departure from my usual favourite, REDS!
Here’s another set of swatches by the window with natural light.
Love, love, LOVE Rouge Majestueux. The perfect holiday lip.
For a video of the highlighter, drop by Instagram. It’s such a stunner. Unfortunately the lighting wasn’t the best when I took this closeup.
Collection launch date is set for the end of October. Two months before Christmas, however these collections always sell out fast. Make sure to stalk the counters around the time so you wont miss the key pieces.
I’m so excited for the holidays! Can’t wait to share a few looks with this collection closer to the launch.
