Nothing fills me with joy as much as makeup well maybe chocolate does. When I recieved the details and some samples of the new summer collection from Chanel I fell in love. Peter Philips Chanel’s creative director of makeup has designed this years summer collection with the most vibrant colours. Inspired by butterfly wings the collection screams summer.
My favourite products from the collection are the Stylo Eyeshadow’s, these beautifully textured eyeshadows come in pencil like shape which makes them so simple to use. The texture looks almost wet on you lid, in such a great way. There six colours available, Black Stream which is a deep black that glistens with silver, Moon River, my absolute favourite, is is a warm platinum colour with the perfect amount of shine. Jade Shore is a great green with a beautiful gold particles, perfect if you love green eyeshadow but need to use warm colours with your cool coloured eyes. Pink Lagoon is a wonderful coral pink which will look amazing on tanned skin or on darker skin tones. Blue Bay is a pure blue that glows with silver, I know I always say that if you have blue eyes to avoid blue eyeshadow but in this case have fun. The last in the group is Cool God which a rich colour that is the same colour as sunbeams (if we ever saw sunbeams in Ireland!)
There are four new shades of Inimitable Waterproof Mascara in the collection. There are fantastic for adding a little drama to your makeup. With great fun colours like Lime Light, a delicate milky green, Zest, a viberant yellow, Aqua Blue an almost green blue and True Blue an electric blue. You can use these all over your lashes but that may be a little too much I suggest that you just place the fun colours on the ends of your mascara to add a playful splash of colour.
There is a Stylo Yeux Waterproof eyeliner, the limited collection colour is True Blue, which enhances all of the colours of the collection.
Of course Chanel would not be Chanel without giving us the most desirable nail polishes and they have not failed with this collection. There are three new shades available with the collection. One of the best coral tones ever Lilis is brilliant, looks beautiful on all skin tones, I have tried it on loads! They have also launched two iridescent shade in wonderfully bold colours, Bel-Argus is a great celestial blus and Azure which combines deep blue and green to create a a really wearable strong nail colour. I love these shades on fingers but I know some people would have the fear when the see the colours, so put them on your toes, your feet deserve a little summer too!!
There are two new shades of Rouge Coco Shine and three new shades of Lévres Scintillantes. Rouge Coco Shine are amazingly textured lipsticks, perfect for anyone who is afraid of strong lipsticks as they are so soft in texture.
