A new fragrance will be introduced in the Fall of 2008. It is described as a softer version of Chanel No. 5. It will only be available in one size, 5oz spray bottle, retailing $125.00. Stay tuned for more on this.
There is a couple of items I'm really looking forward to in this collection. Lumieres Facettes (limited edition), the colours are beautiful bronzed in this eyeshadow quad along with a gorgeous pink color. Inimitable Emeraude, a jade green mascara and last but not least, the limited edition nail colours. I can't wait to see Flamingo, a bright pink and the golden bronze. I expect one of those if not both to be sold out colours. There is alot of greens in this collection. Do I see a Jade Green nail polish for the fall of 2008? Oh, I hope so! What nail colour would you like to see Chanel come out with for fall?
UPDATE: The new collection should arrive at Chanel counters end of March beginning of April.

I would like to see the return of Chanel's "Brown Sugar" nailpolish. It was a light brown/beige with shimmer frost from like 1994 I think. It was the best neutral ever. Maybe Antilope will be ok.

I ordered the both nailpolishes, the eyeliner in Vert Bronze (sounds yummy) and Rouge Allure in Naive (Penelope Cruz wore that on Oscar night and it looked fantastic!). I'm excited for it to come in the mail!

Its all now on Chanel's beauty website. All of the summer makeup- including that Oasis. I double checked the nail polish too, its on there. I'll keep you posted on my thoughts on the colors once I get them.

The two nail polishes are simply divine. Antilope is like a frosty light brown thats a little bronzey (if that makes sense). Flamingo isnt quite as bright as I thought it would be (thankfully). Its a nice not too light pink w/ silvery sparklies in it. Goes on nicely in two coats. Vert Bronze eyeliner is a very light metallic bronze. Naive is my new favorite Rouge Allure lipstick (its light neutral pink).
