The launch of Chanel’s summer collection is always one that we look forward to every year. This year doesn’t disappoint. Collection Reflets D’ete de Chanel is the theme this year, which features cheerful tones that you’ll see on sunny days as you sit by the beach in summer.
Look forward to a limited edition blusher, lip glosses, nail colours and eyeshadows – all of them designed to play with the natural and glimmering light from the sun.
Levres Scintillantes (SGD44)
Imagine these scenes: A sunset over the ocean, clouds light up with electric pink over a lavender blue sky, flamboyant flashes of the golden sun are reflected by the waves – all of them portrayed by the lip glosses in this beautiful collection.
There are five shades in this collection: Hello, a subtle pale pink; Glaze, a delicate and milky lilac; Sexy, a real fuchsia; Happy, a vivid and vibrant coral; Sunny, an ultra-luminous orange tone. These sparkling shades pair up with the nail colours in the collection.
Le Vernis (SGD38)
Speaking of the nail polishes, there are also five in the Chanel Summer Collection: Eastern Light, an opaque white nail polish to wear on its own or combined with any shade of the collection; Sweet Lilac, a delicate lilac shade that will go well with pink and orange lip shades; Pink Tonic, a dazzling fuchsia; Tutti Frutti, a coral colour that reminds you of the sorbet; and Mirabella, a vivid and vibrant orange that is reminiscent of the summer sun.
Illusion D’ombre (SGD52)
On the eyes, three iridescent eyeshadow shades with their fine, silky and pearly texture allows you to adjust makeup with a sheer finish or a more opaque colour block. The shades are: Mirage, a golden bronze with a sheen; New Moon, a scintillating copper, and Utopia, a satiny lavender.
Mascara, Eyeliner, And Blusher Too
In harmony with the eyeshadows, the Ambre Dore (SGD35) completes the eye makeup. This can be used on bare eyelids too, forming a simple line of gold that illuminates the eyes like a sunbeam.
The mascaras (SGD52) come in two brilliant shades perfect for summer: Violet Touch and Orange Touch.
Finally, the Le Blush Crème de Chanel (SGD57), a silky blusher with satiny finish, warms up cheekbones with a luminous shade of delicate rosy brown and accentuates the impression of bare, sun-tanned skin.
