NEW from Chanel: Chanel Superstition Collection First Look & Swatches

Chanel autumn 2013 Superstition Collection

I promise this is the last “first look” type of post you’ll see for a while, but look at these pretties from Chanel Superstition Collection (available in Belgium on August 14th)! It’s impossible to sit on them instead of sharing straight away!

Chanel Mystère Les 4 Ombres (RRP in Belgium: 49,50 euros), Chanel Hasard Ombre Essentielle (RRP: 27,50 euros), Chanel Khaki Bronze Le Volume de Chanel (RRP: 30,50 euros)

Chanel Mystere, Hasard, Khaki Bronze

In the eye department, Chanel is offering a sparkling gray-khaki quad, some taupe-y singles (not showed here: Gri-Gri), and a murky olive mascara to bring the eye look together!

The Chanel Le Blush Crème de Chanel have been buzzing for a while now, and now I can finally see them for myself! These are very creamy to begin with, but once blended out and dried down, they seem to have a powder finish with a beautiful sheen. Especially when it comes to more intense shades (like Présage and Affinité), start out with dabbing a fingertip lightly in the pan: that’s pretty much all you need!

There are 6 lipsticks in total from this collection, and I have Mystique Rouge Coco (57) and Rendez-Vous Rouge Coco Shine (87) to show you (RRP: 31 euros)!

Chanel Mystique Rouge Coco, Rendez-Vous Rouge Coco Shine

Both colors are rather soft and girly, but at the same time vibrant enough!

Last but not least, who can say no to some Chanel Le Vernis? Here you see Alchemie (591) and Mysterious (601. RRP: 23 euros):

A quick swatch shows Alchemie does show some brush strokes (but nothing major), and Mysterious is as vampy as an olive can get (and it’s very very smooth)!

Did you pick anything up from Chanel Superstition Collection? Does anything speak to you here?

    I picked up Le Mystere quad but am really unimpressed with it and am going to sell it in my next blog sale. But I picked up Gri Gri which I love and also Revelation cream blush which has pretty much been my go to blush the past couple of weeks.

    Really love your blog Sunny, hugs from Dubai

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Stacey, thanks so much for dropping by and leaving a comment! I quickly tried Mystere on the other day, but I think it’ll work better for me over a base (I’m thinking Benefit Skinny Jeans). I’ll keep you posted! Revelation looks like another great shade!

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    The blushes look great ! Looking forward to swatches of the Mysterious polish !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jill, I’ll try my best! I tried it on one nail and I think it’ll get a lot of love till spring comes!

  • BeautyLoves

    Now this collection I like! The quad looks lovely, although I wish we had the same shadows as in the US (more pigmented).

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Stamatia, I know what you mean! I think these will produce a bit more fallout, which is a common problem with baked eyeshadows.

  • Bella

    I am awaiting this collection with bated breath. I shall be on holiday when it comes out in the Netherlands, but my favourite Chanel SA will keep some items for me.
    I too wish we had the US version of Chanel eyeshadow quads, though. The ones we get are pretty poorly pigmented and although i can never resist buying them, I actually seldom use them!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Bella, hurrah for great SAs! I’m OK with the Chanel quads I own, but I really hope Chanel will make all their quads with the same formula as Harmonie du Soir. That one is so memorably good!

      • Bella

        Ok, I’m back, and I’m collecting the goods tomorrow, can’t wait! I agree, Harmonie du Soir was a different texture, much softer and more pigmented than the usual. Pity it seems to have been a one-off (that texture, I mean).

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Oh yay, I hope you’ll like your picks! Chanel did launch a quad called Topkapi in 2011 that has the same formula as Harmonie du Soir, but I think that’s the only other one!

  • G.L. Mango

    Completely in love with the cream blushes! I definitely want to get one of these. I have also put the khaki mascara on my wishlist. I bought the limited edition of the inimitable mascara in electric blue this summer. Never thought I would use it that much! So a special for the winter is also welcome… And last but not least I want the lipstick in mystique! The pretty! And after that, I will be officially broke 😉

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey girly, I ended up giving my blue mascara to a friend who wears it every time I see her now! I think I’ll get more use out of this one though. I’ve already quickly tried it on and I think it’s very wearable! I have to check the other three cream blushes out as well!

  • Diana

    Holy moly! Such great products!
    I have Présage as well and I’m in love. It lasts so long on me!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Diana, I can’t wait to try Presage! It’s so pigmented. I’m amazed!

  • beauties

    the cream blushes and the coco lipsticks look amazing 😀

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’m a bit afraid I’ll pick up more stuff from this collection to be honest, like some other cream blushes and Elixir Le Vernis!

  • Anne

    I feel a bit stupid for asking, but can you use a brush with cream blush? I always feel gross when I use my fingers for them somehow…

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Anne, yes you can! I don’t really have a specific brush for cream blushes, but my Shiseido Perfect Foundation brush works well! I think it depends a bit on the texture though. With these it shouldn’t be a problem. If you’re looking at the bouncy moussy type (like the Dior ones) then it might be a bit tricky.

      • Anne

        Thanks, Sunny! I’m hesitating between Chanel Presage and Frivole (that is, if I manage to grab a US version on ebay), and I’ll definitely be taking the fact you can use a brush with Presage into account.
        I actually have a Dior cream blush, Bikini, which I purchased thanks to you and which I am wearing right now. I really like the effect on my cheeks, and it is very easy to apply and blend, but I still prefer to use a brush!

        • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Hey Anne, you can certainly use a brush with Presage! I’m glad you like Bikini! It’s the cream blush I’ve used the most times this summer!

  • Kiss & Make-up

    Holy moly! This is looking goooooood… *scrolls back up to read it all over again*

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      LOL you’re too funny 😉

  • petra

    So many beautiful colors! I love the combination dark eyes and pink on the lips and cheeks!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Petra, I bet that’ll be a great look!

  • Icaria

    I want Hasard & Mystique. Have you seen Élixir the other n/p? That too I think I will want. :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Helene, I’ll have to wait till the 14th to see Elixir. Strange as it is I think I might totally want that one!

  • Jacqueline Ma

    My picks are Presage, Revelation and the Mystere quad. I can’t wait to get my hands on them. Your swatches of the creme blush is drool worthy.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jacqueline, I’d totally wear all 6 cream blushes happily! Need to check the other 3 out!

  • Ruby Chua

    I have been using Presage for the past few days and I really love it! Rendezvous-Vous rouge coco shine looks good too!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Ruby, I’m testing Inspiration out today and I’m digging it! I can only imagine how much I’ll love Presage!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Pretty Pretty!! Can hardly wait to see the blushes of course haha!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I’m working on it already! Testing Inspiration out today. So far so good!

  • ValleyDoll

    Both lipsticks look sooo creamy. Totally my shades too !

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Eva, I bet they’ll look great on you!

  • Dovey

    Hi Sunny,

    The Chanel Superstition collection is gorgeous! I’m loving the tone that Mystere takes on your skin tone!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dovey, it’s really surprising to say the least!

  • VickyM

    I really want to try and pick up at least one of the blushes, as for the nail polishes I like Alchimie but I already have Peridot so I don´t think I need it. Personally I´m more impressed with the Rouge Moire collection rather than Superstition, I already think I need one or two lipsticks from there and the darker nail polish. From Superstition I just want a blush…

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Vicky, I’d love to hear about the blush you end up picking up! I’m more into Superstition, but that’s probably because khaki is one of my favorite shades. What’s more, I’ve been really into cream blushes recently!

  • Krystle Kouture

    Really want the eyeshadow quad and the inspiration blusher! So pretty!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Krystle, I’m testing Inspiration out today and I think it’ll become one of my go-tos! It’s the type of shades that work with everything!

  • MyLuciteDreams

    Pretties! I though of you when I swatched Presage in store, can’t wait to see it on you. I think this collection is gorgeous! I only picked up a Rouge Coco Shine though, I’m still thinking about the blushes :-)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Taylor, Presage has my written all over it haha

      You should try one of these cream blushes (unless you already have a lot of cream blushes in your stash or something)! They’re really good. I promise!

  • Liz

    This collection makes me weep, because it’s classic Chanel with the addition of some super fun blushes. I wonder if we’re getting the square or round shaped pans of the Mystere quad here. Gah, I still have an entire week to wait before I can even catch a glimpse of the samples!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Liz, I’d like to know which version you guys get! I thought you also get the “rest of the world” baked version? Anyways, I’d love to hear what you think once you get to check this collection out!

  • Memoiselle

    I love this collection! Chanel has brought more range of permanent line products; the Blush de Creme de Chanel. I love how it glides on my skin :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Meryl, I’m so glad most of these are permanent (except for Fantastic)! I’m really impressed!

  • Lily

    All of them look great, but the one that caught my attention is the cream blush. I’m a sucker for cream blushes!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lily, you need to check them out! I’d love to own all 6 but I don’t know how quickly they’ll dry out, so I’d better not!

  • Sofia

    I’m also quite a sucker for cream blushes and can’t wait to see them. The whole collection looks so typically elegant Chanel.

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Sofia, you need to check the cream blushes out! I can totally tell why people like them so much!

  • Kristen / Glambunctious

    Ahh! So beautiful! I would love to have everything pictured here! The blushes are super intriguing to me…

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Kristen, I’m testing out Inspiration today and it’s living up to my expectations! I’ll show you soon!

  • Zoey Louisa Roseful

    hello sunny, thanks for keeping everyone up to date with your fabulous first looks ^^ I think I need that pink cream blush! and the mascara sounds interesting, I have the simple black volume version, maybe that khaki would soften the look a little bit. can’t wait to see these beauties in the store 😀 love, zoey louisa :*

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Zoey Louisa, I’m glad these posts are helpful! I’ll start posting full reviews and looks next week. I’m testing Inspiration out today, and I see it becoming a new go-to. It reads slightly cool, but once blended out it reads neutral to warm on my warm-toned skin! I hope you’ll get to check these out soon!

  • Dominique33

    I love the cream blushes, I’ll pick up 2. I have many RC and a few RCS so I’ll pass on these. The quad ( European version ) will be available, well I am currently thinking it over ^^ it was not on my wishlist but who knows ?

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dominique, which two are you thinking about picking up? I like the entire line-up so much. It’s hard to choose!

  • Jenni @ lifeandlensofbeauty

    i love Gri Gri e/s single and bought the khaki precieux liner! Re: the dior quints, i’ve played with both for a few times since they launched on 1st aug but hasn’t been able to pick one XD!! i settled with Bonne Etoile just two days ago 😛 finally!

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      OOOO that liner! I heard the texture is excellent! Need to swatch it and see if I don’t already own something similar. I’d love to hear what you think about Bonne Etoile!

  • Tiffany

    I have Presage and I absolutely love it! I think I want one more shade, but I can’t quite decide which one yet! :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Tiffany, Presage seems like a really popular one and I can totally see why! Having to choose among the 6 is such a pain! Can’t wait to see which one you pick out though 😉

  • Beauty Box

    The eyeshadow quad has some beautiful, elegant shades – perfect for when you need to look sophisticated. I love the look of the lipsticks too. Chanel does “classy” perfectly every time :)

    • Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Yu Ming, yes that sounds like Chanel alright!
