An autumn collection so soon! But, the Chanel Travel Diary selection is more about Luca Pica’s travels rather than a collection to take while you travel. But you obviously can, especially the star of the collection, The Palette Essentielle is a blush, highlight and concealer all in one (it comes in three colourways).
The shade I have here is Beige Clair which seems just right to me for a late September, still got a bit of warmth on my skin, touch up and go. It’s £54. The collection, by the way, launches in August. They’re all creme formulas but the concealer is the least ‘loose’ of the three.
The eye palette is called Road Movie (there are two palettes) and the shades are so deep!
I wish I could show you the photographs that Lucia took for inspiration for this palette which makes it so much more relatable and cohesive, but I think, nearer the time they may go online at Chanel.com. The Quad is £42.
The most unusual item in the Chanel Travel Diary collection is this liquid liner – it comes with its own cartridge just like an ink pen. It’s the one thing I haven’t tested yet, but I’m so intrigued by it. It’s £31.
There are two Ombre Premier Cremes – this one I have here (the other is blue) is called Memory, in a soft, golden sand shade. I have it swatched next to the new brow pen. It’s £25.
As you’d expect, it’s a super smooth application and it comes with a little applicator brush (not sponge).
Lips! Yes, of course there are lips and they’re very ‘Chanel’. An ultra bright red (orange accents) called Experimental in the Rouge Coco formula (£28), and a matte wine shade called Nightfall in Rouge Allure Velvet (£28). The brow pen is also pictured and comes in several shades.
There’s a new shade Rouge Allure Ink in Highway (£28), and it’s pictured next to Horizon Line nail polish (£20).
In the swatch from bottom to top it’s Nightfall, Experimental and Highway. It’s quite a small edit – something to keep us busy before the full winter collection. It’s a 4th August launch date everywhere.

OMG I loved that face palette, have to see if I find an website that sells this to Portugal!
What lovely mellow colours and super wearable. The quad has my name on it for sure! Better put 4 August in my diary. Thank you Jane xx
I think Lucia Pica is doing a wonderful job at Chanel, this is beautiful. The colours are just perfect. I’m not sure I understand why you’d put a concealer in a palette like that, but everything else looks lovely.
That liner intrigues me as well, is it a brush tip or felt tip?
it’s a felt tip x
It seems each collection coming out under Lucia Pica’s guidance is… absolutely stunning. I can’t think of anything I don’t actually love – maybe just things I don’t really need. What makes things more interesting for me are the stories that come with the Chanel collections. I think a lot of brands can probably come up with good makeup, but few actually give you a story as well, and transport you somewhere when you use the products. Here for example, ‘Road movie’ and ‘Travel diary’ immediately conjure up ideas and images…
Btw, thank you for mentioning the launch date. Can hardly wait! 🙂
