Channel your inner Goth with Chanel's Noirs Obscurs collection

September 29, 2009 |  4:30 pm


Black makeup may seem useful only for Halloween, but Chanel Beauty creative director Peter Philips has tweaked the dark and mysterious shade to be sexy, wearable and actually quite pretty.

Chanel’s Noirs Obscurs collection includes nail polish, lipstick, mascara and an eye shadow palette done in variations of black and complementary tones -- deep blue, mahogany and shimmery dark green.  With nail polish names like “Diabolic,” “Vendetta” and “Forbidden,” who could resist gliding on these shades?

The colors in the collection make me really excited that fall is approaching and I can finally wear these midnight tones day and night.

Noirs Obscurs hits Chanel beauty counters, boutiques and in November.
