Hey everyone! Today I have the sneak peek and quick swatches of a beautiful summer collection, Chanel L’Été Papillon de Chanel, to show you! It will hit the shelves in Belgium on May 10th. Hopefully I’ll have most of the reviews up by then so you can have your wish list ready!
As a fan of eyeshadow sticks, I have been really looking forward to Chanel Stylo Eyeshadows (RRP in Belgium: 28 euros). Besides the nifty twist-up mechanism (no mess, no waste), they have an amazing cooling effect when they come in contact with the skin! I haven’t got to test the formula out yet, but they seem to glide on easily and I will for sure keep you posted about the rest!
From left to right: Moon River (07), Jade Shore (37), Blue Ray (47), and Black Stream (57).
The swatches are done with more or less one swipe (sometimes I had to go back because I didn’t apply pressure evenly). As you can see, Chanel certainly did not skimp on pigment or sparkle! I thought I’d like Moon River the most (don’t get me wrong. I love how it looks on my skin tone even though I thought it might pull a little too cool), but Jade Shore is also a stunner! There is a bit of gray in there just to give it more dimension!
Some of the most unusual pieces in this collection include four colored Inimitable Waterproofs (RRP in Belgium: 30,50 euros). From left to right you can see Blue Note (57), Lime Light (37) and Zest (27). I quickly tried these on top of my regular black mascara today, and the effect is pretty interesting!
The collection also includes two Rouge Coco Shines (Idylle 457, Pygmalion 467) and three Lèvres Scintillantes (Zéphyr 377, Envolée 427, and Eden 437). What you see here is Envolée 427 (427), a sheer, sparkling coral. I will most probably do some layering experiments with it!
Here are the swatches of Zest, Lime Light, Blue Note, and Envolée:
Last but not least, let’s just say the three Le Vernis are lusted after for a good reason!
From left to right you see Lilis (647), Azuré (657), and Bel-Argus (667). I know that Azuré has attracted the most attention, but after quickly trying all three on my nails, I can tell you it would be heartbreaking if I could only pick one (or two, for that matter).
That’s it for today! Have you seen this collection already? Are you eyeing anything or have you already picked something up? Let me know in the comments!
