Step aside, holiday red. Chanel has another color up its sleeve for the season of glitz.

Brilliant bursts of fuchsia brighten a collection of warm chocolates in Les Tentations de Chanel, which features the shade in varying degrees of intensity. Le Vernis Nail Colour in Pulsion pops the pink at its brightest, while a wispier hue is used for the tweed texture blush and Tentation Cuivré quad -- which further tempers the shade of the moment with delicate beige and rich brown shadows.

The French luxury brand's cult Glossimer returns in choices of soft pink Charming, deep bronze Pleasing and the boldly dramatic fuchsia Pink Pulsion. If you haven't yet slicked on the best-selling formula, expect full coverage color with a thick consistency and highly reflective shimmer finish. (We think the long-lasting tube is worth the $27 cost of admission.)

Chanel's unique liquid eyeshadow will make an appearance in a smoked-up pewter shade called Splash, while lipstick mavens can pick between the soft Magnolia shade and copper Patchouli, both available in the Rouge Coco Hydrating Crème Lip Colour formula.

If you scored any of the sexy chocolate grays from the brand's fall look, pairing one of the new fuchsia shades will refreshen your collection and add an entirely new, festive vibe.

The entire collection retails from $23 to $56, and will be rolling out to Chanel counters and online this month. But we know some of you just can't do without a fabulous new red for the holidays. For you, Givenchy has the perfect solution.
