Camellias were supposedly Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s favorite flowers. It is believed that the innocuous bloom caught her fancy after she received one from her polo playing boyfriend Boy Capel. Since then the delicate flowers have been closely associated with her fashion label, finding a place on her bags, jewelry and apparel. After the launch of their soft Beige Makeup collection and impactful Jeux De Regards eye makeup range, Chanel now launches the Jardin de Camélias makeup collection: a bouquet of lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, eyeliners, blushes and limited edition face powders.
Inspired by the delicate pink and blush toned flowers, the collection is full of rosy, feminine colors contrasted by white and black accents.

Retailing at $70, the limited edition compact powder comes embossed with Chanel’s iconic flower. It promises to reflect light and lend radiance to your face. It is meant to be dusted lightly over the cheekbones, nose and forehead for maximum impact.
