Chanel Flutters into Summer with Super Brights……………..L’Ete Papillon de Chanel Makeup Collection 2013
Hope your all happy. Yellow mascara anyone? mmm yes i think that one will end up in the bargain bin but who knows, i may be wrong. Time for the Summer Chanel makeup of 2013, which will be released internationally at the beginning of May and no doubt two months later in the UK. I will update with the official date closer to the time.
Peter Phillips wanted to create a makeup line that reflects the carefree feel of summer. The endless palate of colour in the scales of a butterfly was his inspiration behind this line of bright colours and sorbet shades of lip colour.
Anyway, if bright and i mean bright shades are your thing then your going to love Chanel this summer. The whole collection is limited edition except for the re-promotes.
So, we begin with 5 shades of Le Volume de Chanel mascara. Yellow, green, blue, bright blue and black, 3 are new shades £24.00; however, the most interesting thing about this whole collection is the eye shadow sticks. Shade names are on the card.
There are six shades available Platinum, Gold, Green, Pink, blue and Black and they look pretty much the same size as all the others released at the moment. I really like the look of the pink one but i am holding judgement on these, as i am not overawed with any of the current ones released by various other companies. These shadow sticks are highly pigmented There is also a waterproof Stylo Yeux in Turquoise. £19.00, which is going to be a very popular summer shade.
Two re-promotes which are, the sunkissed bronzing highlighter, which i have and it is absolutely gorgeous and Soleil Tan de Chanel bronzing cream. Both £31.00
The three nail polishes are gorgeous and i love the metallic finish on both the blue and green ones £18.00.
Finally; there are two new Coco lip shines one in a soft peach; one a raspberry shade, (worn on promo pic and i love it) £24.00; and three lip glosses. Beige, Coral and translucent raspberry, £21.00.
A fairly interesting mix but i have to admit, this is the first ever Chanel summer makeup collection i haven’t got excited about; however, i do understand why they are targeting a younger market. What are your thoughts?
Have fun everyone and i will see you all soon. 😉
