In The Summer Light | CHANEL Summer 2016 Makeup Collection

Prepare to feast your eyes as CHANEL’s Summer 2016 makeup collection, DANS LA LUMIÈRE DE L’ÉTÉ hits Chanel counters on the 6th June 2016. It’s a fusion of dark and sultry, bright, sparkling eyes with coral lips complimented with perfect skin!

Here’s a look at the beauties I got to play with…


Eyes That Sparkle…

The Exclusive Creation EMPREINTE DU DÉSERT palette (R955) is a limited edition launch for this collection and features four gorgeous shadows with soft, silky textures and a beautiful wavy, desert sand design imprinted on them.


The colours combine warm tones of copper and golden beige, enhanced by brown and khaki. It’s a great palette that will have you creating a flamboyant look with a fully saturated effect – perfect to compliment a golden tanned skin.


These buttery soft, blendable and high contrast shadows are the perfect way to create sultry eyes. I must admit, I almost never wear green on my eyes, but this dark khaki green has got such dimension it’s just too amazing for words. The copper, brown and golden beige… well they are always great colours to have on hand, and these ones from CHANEL are incredibly pigmented, contrasty and gorgeous!

Lips that pop…

From the lips collection, I got to play with the LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES (R505) gloss in the shade TANAMI – 602 which is a beautiful and perfect summer coral.


Besides the gorgeous colour and amazing texture of Chanel LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES glosses, this collection features a new applicator that contours to the lips for seamless application.


Skin that glows…

Also launching as part of the Chanel Summer 2016 Makeup Collection are two new LES BEIGES HEALTHY GLOW MULTI-COLOUR compacts.


I got to play with Duo n°1 (R990) which comprises a terra cotta brown to define the contours of the face and a golden sand colour to bring touches of light to the cheeks and temples.


It is such an insanely beautiful combo! If you want to create sultry contouring effects and a sophisticated, subtle glow to make your cheeks pop, then this is the palette to have and to hold!

Be sure to check it out at Chanel Counters before it’s all gone!
