The precious heritage left to us by legendary French fashion designer Coco Chanel carries on going back to her tastes and preferences and here we are again laying eyes on the new Chanel Le Blanc 2016 makeup collection. Chanel had a soft spot for le blanc pearls and she could always be spotted with her neck embellished with strands of pearls, considering them to be the best warrants for whitened and bright complexion. The concept served as a huge inspiration for Chanel skincare team to work out a fine formula to brighten and even out the face as softly and lightly as those Coco-Chanel-favorite pearls.
The secret behind pearl effect skin developed by Chanel Laboratories in Japan is the unique combination of TXC™ (transexamic acid) and 2-Year Pearl Extract. And now the new lineup comes up with a series of skin-tone-boosting and illuminating makeup products that are complemented with pearl-effect eyeshadows and lip colors, the delicate pink shining in between as the best matching pair for pearly white.
There is one more surprise for you in store – the collection also features Coco Mademoiselle Touche de Parfum that comes to gracefully finish off the radiating pearl theme. The line will be available in Asia soon enough starting from February, the USA will enjoy the pearls only in summer 2016 for Nordstrom Anniversary, while the fragrance alone will come to market on 4 March, 2016.
