Chanel's Rouge Noir turns 20

What better way to celebrate their birthday than dedicating their new Christmas make-up collection to the cult blood-red colour?

What makes a product cult is when it’s as on-trend now as it was when it initially launched. Case in point - Chanel’s Rouge Noir that’s just turned 20. Launched in 1995, the black based polish entwined with a deep red looks is as relevant and on-trend today as it was back then. FYI, A-list manicurist, Marian Newman is tipping ‘tinted black polishes’ Autumn/Winter 15’s hottest nail look.

But Rouge Noir isn’t just en pointe in fashion circles, the classic colour works on every skin tone too so everyone can give their manicure the perfect Parisian chic finish.

Now, to celebrate Rouge Noir’s milestone, Chanel’s Christmas 2015 make-up collection is dedicated to the iconic nail shade and we couldn’t be more excited! From the quilted-effect palette, to vampy lipsticks and a textured topcoat, we predict a sell out so get your hands on the full collection fast!

For eyes: Chanel Exclusive Creation Palette £44

Quite possibly the most covetable palette yet and embossed with the double C motif, this contains four shades - Luminous sheen (a dusky rose), Electrifying Rouge Noir (the iconic colour), Radiance booster (a rich taupe), and Smoldering gold (a bright yellow gold). Smokey eyes here we come!

For nails: Chanel Le Top Coat Lame Rouge Noir, £18

Jazz up your regular nail polish with this sparkly finisher. Ultra fine, when layered over any coloured polish it creates an eye-catching pearlescent party look that’s perfect for the festive season.

For lashes: Le Volume De Chanel Rouge Noir Mascara, £25

Our favourite mascara for full lashes has been given a garnet-hued twist and the result is full-on glamour. Enhancing the eyes, apply by itself for an intense effect or over the top of your usual mascara for subtle flecks of colour.
