Chanel Unveils Limited Edition ‘Jardin Imaginaire’ Summer Makeup Collection: Moodie Davitt Report

The last The Varnish nail polishes are inspired by vibrant summer flora

Luxury house Chanel has released the limited-edition Jardin Imaginaire summer 2024 makeup collection. The vibrant line was designed by Chanel Global Makeup Creative Partner Ammy Drammeh, a member of creative makeup collective Cométes Collective.

The line will launch on July 15 in select Chanel stores across global travel retail.

Drammeh described the range as follows: “I wanted to create a bridge between reality and fiction. I was inspired by fairy tales and stories that describe nature as an enchanted place full of colour, where flowers look like jewels and where harmonious light reflects the most surprising textures.

“I wanted to add unexpected, vibrant nuances and treat each color as a tool to be used with skill.”

The range explores the power of colour and offers a range of vibrant shades in a variety of multi-functional products. These include eyeshadow pencils, highlighter balms, highlighter and blush compacts and nail polishes.

The Stylo Yeux Ombre et Contour pencils are available in the shades Celestial Pink, Nuage Bleu, Néon Dahlia, Dream Leaf, Atardecer, Attaya and Écorce. They can be used to create striking make-up looks.

“With this collection I wanted to offer the opportunity to be free and wear colours that suit us,” Drammeh added.

“For this season, I wanted to dress Stylo Ombre et Couture in imaginative, ultra-bold shades. They allow you to easily create countless makeup looks. They offer the opportunity to feel confident and have fun with colors that you might not dare to wear every day.”

The Baume Essentiel is available in two shades: Moonlight Kiss and Solar Glow. The multi-use highlighter balms can be worn as a highlighter or bronzer and can be used on eyes, cheeks, brows and lips.

“The Moonlight Kiss shade is a rose gold hue that adorns cheeks with a radiant, luminous glow. A multi-use colourway that is ideal for every day, it can be worn on the tops of the cheekbones, as well as on the brow bone, nose and inner corner of the eyelids.

“Solar Glow is a surprising copper bronze. On darker skins, the warm tones lift the complexion. On lighter skins, it accentuates with a brown sheen that is perfect for the summer season.”

The blush and highlighter duos come in Gold and Peach and Light and Berry, while Le Vernis’ nail polish collection has been expanded with three new summer shades: Rêveuse, Songe d’été and Faun.

Drammeh added: “For this first powder colour harmony, I chose two warm colours reminiscent of the sunset. They emphasise the complexion while providing a natural, healthy glow with a subtle brown colour thanks to the coral blush.

“This second creation is inspired by the colours you see in summer flowers such as dahlias. The highlighter contains pink mother-of-pearl for an iridescent result on the skin. As for the blush, it is a matte fuchsia pink that suits all skin types.”

Rêveuse is a metallic gold-green inspired by insects in tropical forests; Songe d’été is a pink pearlescent topcoat that can be worn alone or over other nail polishes; Faun is a rich brown.
