For Summer 2015, The CHANEL Makeup Creation Studio extends the memories of the season with a vibrant collection immersed in azure blue and infused with light. Inspired by the Riviera of the Roaring Twenties, favourite destination of Gabrielle Chanel.
This new collection launches in May 2015, but I couldn’t help but share some of the gorgeous products I got to play with…
Let’s start with my favourite, favourite: EXCLUSIVE CREATION LUMIÈRE D’ÉTÉ
Chanel compacts are always so breathtakingly beautiful! So much so that you almost don’t want to mess them up, but when you use them you love the effect so much.
This is true with the bronzing complexion powder. In true Chanel style, it’s embossed with the camellia flower and is how one might picture elegant women discovering the Riviera of the Roaring Twenties.
It’s a soft bronzer that illuminates the skin to enhance your natural complexion, glimmering with subtle golden shimmers and an amazing satiny finish.
For the nails, my favourite colour from this collection is MÉDITERRANÉE.
I love blue tips and toes and this one is a pure, deep ocean blue that makes you want to plunge into turquoise waters.
The colour payoff is amazing and one coat gives you rich, vibrant blue. Although two coats is magnificent!
Lips for this collection are fresh, spontaneous and luminous!
ROUGE COCO SHINE in INSOUMISE, a gorgeous coral with an intense shine that makes the perfect backdrop for the beautiful blue waters of the Med.
I do like the ROUGE COCO SHINE lippies in general, but they are usually very sheer with just a touch of colour. INSOUMISE is one shade from the lip collection that has a more pigmented tone that lasts longer than usual.
It makes my lips look incredibly saturated in lustrous colour! LOVE IT!
I’m a huge, huge fan of Chanel STYLO EYESHADOWS. They are amazing!
They are highly pigmented, great to travel with, perfect for summer and the creamy texture (that is formulated with a high concentration of water) is ideal for fabulous summer lids.
I also love how buildable these shadows are. You could literally create an entire, three shade lid (light, medium and dark) with one product, just by applying lighter and darker strokes.
There are five shades that embrace the energy and radiance of summer. From my top pick, CAROUBE, a luminous, warm brown, to violets with blue shimmers (Campanule), to turquoise (Azulejo), to a golden powder pink (Laurier) to an elegant olive green (Olivine).
I quickly swatched Rouge Coco Shine in Insoumise and the Stylo Eyeshadow in Caroube to give you an idea of the amazing colours.
Such a beautiful collection. So inspiring, I feel like another Mediterranean holiday!
