Peter Philips, Global Creative Makeup Director for CHANEL, created eight new shades directly inspired by a shower of meteorites as well as two iridescent nail polishes. On the lips, color oscillates between opalescent reflections and shimmering effects.
“I love the shine of Lèvres Scintillantes, because you can apply it without looking, pinch your lips and get a subtle result,” explains Peter Philips. “But if you want a more dramatic and delicious effect, you can overdose it without hesitating, as the formula doesn’t run.”
