Is This the Perfect Man? Peter Philips' Chanel Makeup Robots

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

This is, by far, the most entertaining thing that's landed in our inboxes all week. It's a Chanel makeup robot! No, really.

“A few years ago I made these little robots, that were part of a headpiece i created for a tribal makeup shooting? that’s where the idea first came from," says Peter Philips, creative director of Chanel Makeup. “I then had the chance to play with these characters and do an animation, that’s how my little robots came to life."

Check out Phillips' animations beginning at the end of this month at the website. For the time being, there's a super-cute teaser up for your viewing pleasure.
