Sneak Peek: Chanel Holiday, the sets

I think 2010 holiday is a particularly spectacular year for Chanel gift sets. As you probably know, holiday stuff goes on sale in October. This year, Chanel has put together a great assortment of gift sets in cute little makeup bags.  Honestly, every one of them sounds like a winner.
Chanel, holiday, 2010, Glossimer Duo, gift set
First up, the Glossimer Duo (Les Deux Levres Scintillantes, $51). This set contains full-size Glossimers in Muscat and Wild Rose, a mini Precision Lip Definer in Nude, and a pencil sharpener (plus the makeup bag).  This is huge because Wild Rose was wildly popular — here’s a swatch.

“Nude” often means bronzey or coppery in Chanel’s lexicon,  and here’s a swatch of that lipliner — it’s not my favorite, but since just one glossimer is $27, I think this is a great deal whether or not you like the pencil.
Chanel, holiday, 2010, gift sets, Collection Teinte de Peche, the Ingenue Collection
Collection Teinte de Peche — also titled “The Ingenue Collection” — contains Joues Contraste blush in In Love (I can’t remember having seen a blush in a set before), the new-for-fall Glossimer Coral Love (swatched here), and Inimitable Intense mascara in Noir. This set is $95, which is not a huge discount off the price of buying these items individually, but a lovely gift set just the same.
Chanel, holiday, 2010, nail polish trio
There’s usually a holiday trio of nail polishes. This year the shades are Rouge Noir, Gold Lame (swatched here), and Coromandel (swatched here) — a great lineup, especially if you missed out on Gold Lame. The set is $66.
Chanel, holiday, 2010, brush set
And I think I saved the best for last: The holiday brush set. It’s $125, and you get a short-handled powder/blush contour brush, foundation brush, eyeshadow brush, angled brow brush, eyeliner brush, and lip brush, all in a handy travel case.

EDIT: I should add, for completeness, that there are also a variety of fragrance gift sets for men and women.  But those are to be expected for holiday.

  • The glossimer set looks awesome and Wild Rose is a special fav of mine–wouldn’t mind having a back up. I have the IN Love blush, need to pull it out. The nail colors look fugly to me but…oh yeah…. these are supposed to be gifts for OTHER people!

  • KarlaSugar says:

    The product picture of the polishes looks particularly weird to me. It doesn’t do justice to Gold Lame at all, and Rouge Noir is so sexy, and it just doesn’t read in that image.

  • KellyK says:

    Oh I am all over that brush set! And I love the wild rose, I have in love, might grab the coral love too… thanks karla for keeping us on our toes!

  • Martha says:

    Since I have In Love, not loving Glossimers or the nail colors, I can safely say I am skipping these! Yay :)

  • Valerie Pierzina says:

    Aww! I was SO hoping for a Rouge Coco lipstick Gift Set! :(

  • Julie says:
