CHANEL Collection Noirs Obscurs

Peter Philips, global creative director of CHANEL, creates a tribute to black with an avante-garde collection of trend defining eye, lip and nail shades

Now, with the introduction of CHANEL Collection Noirs Obscurs, two favorite Chanel mascaras are available in a new, deeply dramatic black shade— Noir Obscur. Taken to the extreme, the color black has never looked more luxurious or mysterious on lashes…with intensely dark, dramatic effects.


  • Chanel Inimitable Noir Obscur Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel in Extreme Black
  • Chanel Exceptionnel de Chanel Noir Obscur Intense Volume and Curl Mascara in Extreme Black


And now, my favorite part of the collection: DIABOLIC Le Vernis Nail Colour. I’m betting I’ll be wearing this shade long into winter (or until my bottle runs out!). It’s hard to see in this photo, but Diabolic is a red-black creme.

For comparison, here is Diabolic sitting next to her sister Rouge Noir (this photo was taken in the morning sun, in person both of these shades appear darker). Can you see the resemblance?

Also in this collection is the new Quatuor Boutons de Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Les Folies Noires. Feast your eyes, my darlings:


And if that’s not enough on this fine Wednesday morning, here are three more reasons to LOVE the season ahead:


Let’s just call them Obscure, Maniac and Hysteria. Are you not enthralled? Here are some swatches just in case:

  • Gorgeous darling.

  • Wow. So sad that I could never wear those beautiful lipsticks though. I’d look like I’d been smacked in the mouth!

  • That is a gorgeous nail shade. I can’t stand wimpy blacks.

  • Ooooooh. Love.

  • I think I may go back for more nailpolish. Did you like the quad? I got it, but its not what I expected from Chanel. They swatched grayish. I’m using bases to make them work.

  • Luxury cosmetic!
