7 Chanel beauty buys our editor is nabbing from the brand’s new online boutique
The best of the best just got simpler to snag
Editor / June 19 2023
Ask any editor for an edit of their most beloved beauty essentials, and their response will most likely start with the word ‘Chanel’.
Chanel simply do luxury beauty formulations just as superbly as they do tweed jackets, and we all know they do them damn impeccably.
And with their Fragrance & Beauty Online Boutique now in action, it’s never been easier to restock your regulars, and sample some new nail, skin, makeup, and fragrance finds while you're at it.
But because we know it can be overwhelming starting a shopping journey when, well, you want absolutely everything, we thought we’d highlight a few of our expert-approved favourites for your pre-purchase perusal.
Here are the Chanel beauty buys our editor is coveting (AKA heading straight to the online boutique to add to cart immediately). Race you there!
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 'Tissé Vendôme'
An eyeshadow edit that ticks multiple 'occasion' boxes is a must-have in any makeup routine, and this stunning colour quartet is as versatile as it is striking. Featuring four shades sprinkled with a day or night-friendly serving of shimmer, it offers options that range from a pale peach perfect for an everyday shadow wash, to a statement coral hue, and two defining cocoa colours that would serve you well for an abundance of 'after dark' settings.

Chanel Le Vernis in 'Immortelle'
A cooler take on pale polish if you're tiring of shell pink, this lavender-hued lacquer flatters an amazing array of skin tones, expertly toeing the line between 'subtle' and 'statement'. The formula has been freshened up recently too, with higher concentration of pigment and camellia eco-ceramide-aided shine both on the perfectly-manicured cards.
$45 at Chanel
Chanel Gabrielle Essence Eau De Parfum Spray
As greater addition to your vanity as it is to your fragrance wardrobe (the gold stopper simply screams luxury), this statement scent envelops the senses in a cloud of sandalwood, citrus, and tuberose, with vanilla and coconut sandwiched in to add extra body. It's sweet but spritely with plenty of personality; no doubt just the way you'll feel when wearing it.
$275 (for 100ml) at Chanel
Chanel Rouge Coco Baume in 'Flirty Coral'
Considering coral is a neutral in our colour-fond editor's book, this balm-filled bullet is an everyday essential. A beautifully buildable formula that offers a sheer coating of colour after one coat, and a full-fledged semi-opaque lipstick finish after three, it's a solid contender for 'only lipstick in your purse' status. The comfort is also as impressive as the colour; forward your notes of gratitude to nourishing shea butter for that.
$57 at Chanel
Chanel Les Beiges Water-Fresh Tint in 'Medium Light'
Whether you want to skip makeup in favour of something more natural, or simply desire a little pre-base bronzing, blurring help, this complexion-evening tint has gained cult status for incredibly good reason. Melting into skin while imparting a soft-finish golden glow, it's the secret to looking fresh, even sans foundation. An undeniable sensory treat, the cooling feel and calming neroli aroma are also strong points in its lengthy 'reasons to try' column.
$110 at Chanel
Chanel Le Lift Flash Eye Revitaliser
Everyone loves a little luxury logo action, and these eye patches are practically a Boy Bag for your under-eye area. Their de-puffing partner-in-crime comes in the form of an anti-ageing serum-filled rollerball, that offers a cooling massage while dispensing the ideal amount of product. Apply the aforementioned patches on top, then sit back, relax, and await the soothing, firming, lifting magic headed your way.
$200 at Chanel
Chanel Le Gommage Anti-Pollution Exfoliating Gel
Gommage offers sensitive skin a welcome gentle exfoliating method, and Chanel's skin-smoothing gommage gel is simply second to none in the category. A velvety gel-cream housing natural-origin pink jojoba microbeads, it shows the door to dead skin cells, impurities, and traces of pollution, leaving skin purified and perfectly prepped for makeup.
