Chanel Summer Collection


Chanel's summer collection looks quite yummy. I had hoped to have swatches of the new jade green mascara and green bronze eyeliners, they sound like major winners. If I get swatches soon , I will post them.

I remember wearing colored mascara years ago, and more recently have used Bourjois' purple one. Thats a not too bright one . Not sure how a green will look these days, but am willing to try it and see.
The collection hits counters next month.

FACE: For a summer face based on the ultimate bronze, CHANEL offers the new SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL Moisturizing Bronzing Powder in five versatile shades, plus BRONZE UNIVERSEL DE CHANEL Sun Illuminator.

EYES: Complement this sun-kissed skin tone with OMBRE ESSENTIELLE Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Tigre (bronze), Nomade (pink rose), Khaki (khaki green), and Safari (stone brown); amp up the shine with LUMIÈRES FACETTES Iridescent Effects Eyes in Oasis, a quad containing khaki, bronze, coral, and pink shimmer, or OMBRE D’EAU Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Atoll (golden sand).

For long-lasting definition, STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF Long-Lasting Eyeliner comes in an exotic new shade, Vert Bronze (green bronze), while INIMITABLE WATERPROOF Mascara Multi-Dimensionnel is now available in Emeraude, a shimmering, jade-green.

LIPS: For warm-weather lips, ROUGE HYDRABASE Creme Lipstick arrives in
Leopard (golden coral) and Rose Flamingo (a flamingo pink); ROUGE ALLURE Luminous Satin Lip Colour keeps things soft with Naïve (pinkish nude) and Curious (nude brown).

AQUALUMIÈRE Sheer Colour Lipshine SPF15 adds a sheer shot of colour in Zanzibar (soft peach) and Mauritius (bronzed coral).
NAILS: For a final touch, LE VERNIS Nail Colour arrives in Antilope, a frosted golden-brown, and Flamingo, a bright tropical pink.

Available at department and specialty stores and on CHANEL.com: April 2008 ( Note: I hear it's at Nordstrom's now)

No no no no! Don't show me new Chanel! Now I must have that Quad. And I'll probably have to at least test the Ombre d'Eau (love that stuff).

I've been using EL Bronze Goddess stuff recently and have really liked the results. The bronze lipstick is especially wonderful.
