I have to say I was a bit underwhelmed with the spring 2009 palette from Chanel. The gypsy-inspired collection features dark eye shadows and bright red lip colors. Peter Philips, Chanel's global creative makeup director, was digging through Chanel archives when he found sketches of gypsy dresses by Gabrielle Chanel. He used those as a jumping-off point for the collection. “The Gypsy is a heroine with very distinctive beauty codes...The gypsy’s eyes are as dark as her lips are fiery. She has the passion of travel in her veins, that of celebration, dance, and especially that of darkness and mystery.” While I think the colors overall go with Philips' concept (including lipsticks called Fuego ["fire" in Spanish] and Gipsy Scarlett - both fierce reds), I'm not sure where this palette fits in.
