Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all well and enjoyed the ever so lovely weather we were having today! Got my fingers crossed that it will last over the weekend and start to stay hotter for the summer months.
I have quite an exciting post on the new Chanel Summer 2013 Makeup Collection which launched in stores yesterday! I was very kindly invited to another special event to try out all the new goodies and get my makeup done... I absolutely jumped at the chance. I will be showing you all the goodies i picked up as well as show you my makeover with all the products used, which may feature in another post depending on how long this one is as i did pick up quite a bits :D haha. I will be doing individual reviews on all the items mentioned in this post so pretty please let me know which ones you would like to see first :D
The new Summer 2013 Collection is called 'L’ÉTÉ PAPILLON DE CHANEL' and the dazzling colours of butterflies inspire joyful looks for your face and fingertips with this Summer collection. Your lashes will flutter with electric shades of mascara, your eyelids adorned with gleaming colours and your nails and lips complete with sunlit brilliance shades.
Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick | Idylle
I have a few Coco Shine Lipsticks in my makeup collection now and i think they are so lovely to apply and look very subtle but chic at the same time. It looks like a pale peach when swatched a little more heavily as they are know to be quite sheer. It has small particles of shimmer which look stunning when the light hit. Even though the two lipstick shades in this collection were both stunning, i opted for this one as i am absolutely loving anything coral or peach for the summer.
Brilliant Extreme Glossimer | Zephyr
Yet again i have accumulated a few of these stunning Glossimer's in my makeup collection now. I first picked a few up in the LA duty free a few years back and i have never turned back! There are three different shades in the Summer Collection and i opted for this shade as i feel it is the perfect match with my Rouge Coco Shine. After swatching all three i did notice that they all come out very sheer so you could accompany any shade with a wide range of lipstick choices. This stood out to me instantly after watching Lisa Eldridges video on the collection, it is a stunning nude shade with slight hints of shimmer, very much similar to the Rouge Coco Shine.
Stylo Eyeshadow | Moon River
OMG! These are some of the best eyeshadow pencils i have ever used! I currently have 3 shades of these on my eyes right now and they have not budged or creased at all! When i first swatched these i was instantly blown away at how creamy they were, seriously soft and silky to the touch. Moon River is a type of shade which i would constantly reach for when doing my eye makeup. It is extremely wearable but could be used for a dramatic look also, it has slight flecks of shimmer and glitter which makes me love them even more. These are Chanel's first ever Stylo Eyeshadows and i want them to be part of the permanent line!
Inimitable Mascara | Blue Note
How amazing is this colour?! Yet again i saw Lisa Eldridge use this in her recent video on the Summer Collection and it really did tempt me to purchase one for my makeup collection. Believe it or not but this is my first ever Chanel Mascara, personally i could never really justify spending that much on a mascara which dries up so quickly, but also i do love layering on all my drugstore mascaras haha. When seeing all the beautiful shades in the Collection i couldn't not pick one up. Back in the day when my Mum was in Upper School she used to wear blue mascara alllll the time and she even had a cheeky little nickname as her lashes always looked amazing! So this is really a super nostalgic product :D In my makeover they used the new Le Volume mascara and id have to say i am really liking it so far so my opinion on higher end mascaras might be changing haha.
Rouge Allure Velvet Lipstick | La Favorite
This beautiful lipstick is not part of the Summer Collection but in fact the Spring 2013 Collection but i did purchase this along with everything else and thought it would be rude not to include it in this post right?! haha. This glamorous coraly red lipstick was used in my makeover and i fell in love with it as soon as i saw it applied to my lips. If you read my blog then you know i'm very much a pink lips girly but i am super loving these coral shade sfor the summer time and this is going to be much loved addition to my lipstick collection. After having my makeup done a makeup artist from Dior who has worked with a wide range of famous celebrities like 'Kylie Minogue' and Fashion Weeks around the globe came over to me and complimented how my makeup looked on me and that he loved the lipstick shade on me! Now, for a man to notice little things like that i was sold even more! :D
I never leave the Chanel counter without some lovely sample goodies to bring home and try out. I actually have a drawer at home with all of my Chanel samples and other branded samples to use. Love me a good ol' sample :P I was given two samples of the new 'Le Volume' Mascara, some skincare and four beautiful red lipstick samples with a mini brush...how fabulous!
I hope you all enjoyed this post! Pretty please let me know what you think about all these goodies and if there is anything i might of missed that i should pick up :D like always lovelies if you have any requests, questions or recommendations please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below.
