As a city built on water, Venice was a source of great intrigue for Gabrielle Chanel. She saw it as simultaneously dramatic and fragile – qualities she herself possessed. With the imagination of the Chanel Makeup Studio, Venice comes to life in a palette reflective of the city’s shimmering facades and mosaics, and the sparkling aquatic colours of its lagoons.
As seen in the runway looks created by Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup, at the 2009/10 Cruise Collection show, held on the beaches of Venice, Italy, rich sienna and deep rose tones, and dusky greys and greens combine for a modern look that can be softened for day or emboldened come evening.
LIPS: The Chanel lip collection expands with a selection of rich, luxurious shades. Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Colour arrives in Intuitive, a pinkish brown; Clandestine, a rich brick shade; Captive, a classic brown; Amusing, a rosewood tone; Comedia, a true rose; and Instinctive, a perfect pink nude. Lips glimmer with Levres Scintillantes Glossimer in Courtisane, a natural pink, and Arelequin, a glossy gold. Finally, define the mouth with Le Crayon Levres Precision Lip Definer in Praline d’Or, a golden-hued nude.
EYES: Create a subtle or more dramatic look with Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Murano, a palette with shades of moss, pink and seafoam, and green shimmer. The latest Irreelle DUO Silky Eyeshadow Duo arrives in Acqua Alta, a pairing of white and grey shadows. Brows look perfectly defined with two new shades of Le Crayon Sourcils Precision Brow Definer, Blond Clair and Cendre Noir.
FACE: For the perfect finish, apply Joues Contraste Powder Blush in Fresque, a subtle peach shade, or Les Tissages De Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Sienna, a gorgeous earthy bronze. Skin is luminous with Poudre Douce Soft Pressed Powder in Pêche Caresse, a soft peach.
NAILS: Chanel, the leader in nail colour trends, introduces two new shades of Le Vernis Nail Colour: Intermezzo, a white pearl, and Gondola, a stunning maroon shimmer.
Available at Chanel boutiques, department and specialty stores, and on Chanel.com.

I envy the way Alexis Bledel pulls off a bold lip. So using some of my new favorite products from mark, I set out to replicate the look.

Hang in there for a sneak peek at an amazing 3-in-1 lip product from Avon (to be released later this summer.

Let’s be honest. Most Valentine’s Day gift sets are a little gimmicky. We’re in a recession – so buying a bunch of products that you’re not in love with doesn’t make much sense. If it wouldn’t set your pulse racing a month from now, set it down. Am I right?
Which brings me to The Love Set by NARS – a gift set so loveable, you don’t need a commercialized holiday to justify this purchase. This assortment of flirtatious hues help you achieve that coveted after-glow:
Pillow Talk Lip Gloss
The unique, semi-sheer formulation provides serious shine and imparts a warm azalea pink hue. May be worn alone or atop any lipstick for a perfectly sexy pout.
Sex Machine Velvet Matte Lip Pencil
Combining the convenience of a pencil with the application of a lipstick, this rich, pink-mauve lip pencil provides a matte, creamy finish that will last for hours.
This cult classic makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer.
Available exclusively at Sephora, this limited edition set is $49 (a $73 value).
