The world first saw Chanel makeup all the way back in 1924, when Coco Chanel released the brand's first line of lip colors and powders. The lipsticks were revolutionary then, boasting a creamy and pigmented formula that was almost unheard of at the time. And now, almost a century later, the brand is still renowned for their signature lip colors, with a few other updated classics used by women (and men) from all over. Ahead, we introduce 10 of the most popular Chanel makeup items in the Philippines, so you can shop along and get to know the luxury beauty brand's best-selling formulas:
Top 10 Chanel Makeup in the Philippines
1. Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder in Clair
Powder is a must in weather like ours, so it comes as no surprise that this product tops the list. Chanel also dubs this as a "natural finish loose powder," since it has photo-reflective pigments that leave your skin with a soft glow as the powder particles set your makeup in place and blur the appearrance of lines.

2. Chanel Stylo Sourcils Waterproof Defining Longwear Eyebrow Pencil
Next to fresh-looking skin, the Filipina's next makeup priority is—you guessed it—perfect brows. The Stylo Sourcils can give you just that with its dual-ended case that houses an angled pencil on one end and a spoolie brush on the other. The best part? It's waterproof!

3. Chanel Le Teint Ultra Tenue Compact Ultrawear Flawless Compact Foundation
This powder foundation is a workhorse for anyone who needs matte coverage on the go. It comes with a double-sided sponge that you can use to either cover up or lightly blot your T-zone, and a light-diffusing finish that keeps you shine-free but not flat.

4. Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre Natural Finish Loose Powder in Naturel
As you can probably tell, everyone seems to love this loose powder formula. The shade Naturel has a subtle yellowish tint that suits light to medium Filipina skin tones perfectly. You can actually wear this powder alone to mattify and lightly even out your skin tone, in case you can't be bothered with using foundation or a high-coverage powder.

6. Chanel Rouge Allure Ink Matte Liquid Lip Color in Expérimenté
The Rouge Allure Ink is for liquid lipstick fans who want a long-lasting lip color that provides a matte-but-not-flat finish.

8. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Abstrait
The Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks are the in-between of a matte lipstick and a high-shine one. Many prefer this soft matte finish for an everyday lip color, and it appears that the rosy coral nude called Abstrait is the most popular choice.

9. Chanel Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour in Libre
Another best-seller from the range is Libre, a dusty pink with a prominently warm undertone. This is a shade that Chanel muse Lily-Rose Depp wore when she closed the brand's Spring-Summer Haute Couture Show in 2017, but it's such a simple shade that don't need to have an occasion that special to rock it.
