Chanel Summer '09 Cote D'Azur

Summer is up now at Chanel. The new collection is loaded with pretty Aqualumieres( my favorite Chanel lippie), a great multi bronzer, eye quad , 2 nail polishes , a gorgeous pink/coral blush called In Love and more.

My highlights are the Soleil Tan De Chanel 4 Facettes Bronzing Powder, Orange Fizz nail polish and the aforementioned Aqualumieres.

The 4 Facettes bronzer is 4 pretty and light to medium bronzing shades. No dark pigment here, this gives you a great light bronzing. It looks very natural and not too dark or overdone. You can also use just the lightest shades for highlighting. There is shimmer but not too much. It's , if you can ever call Chanel basic, a good basic bronzer.

Orange Fizz is one of two new nail shades and is one pretty orange. It's not too bright but not pale. Think orange sherbet not soda. It's non shimmer and can go on a bit streaky at first. The second coat goes much better and it dries down perfectly.

The new Aqualumieres include Panarea, the lipstick Jen Aniston wore to the Oscars, Ischia, a nice tan complementing rose ,and my favorite Salina ( LE), a barely there shimmer pink nude.

All are available now at Chanel counters and ( much is out of stock already, so check counters, other online)
