New Chanel Goodies Predictibly Gorgeous: Meet the Cote D’Azur Collection

Tans, corals, shimmer and bronzer: that’s the core of Chanel‘s new season collection. Cote D’Azur is, as you’d imagine, very glam altogether.

What stands out? That stripe-tastic bronzer, above, for one. Poudre Soleil 4 Lumieres  is €49, and contains a quad of bronzers in varying shades. A bit Bobbi Brown, to be sure, but very finely milled and not remotely as shimmery, this will be good for day. Oh – and Irish skintones.

I’m also loving the Cherry Blossom Aqualumiere Gloss, €24. Sheer and sparkly, it’s a perfect summer scarlet and is joined by two other shades, Tangerine Dream and Ginger Shimmer. See pics of those, and the rest of the collection, after the cut.

Aqualumiere lipsticks come in three shades: Panarea, Lipari and Salina, €25.50 a pop.

Poudre Precieuse Libre Effet Hale

This baby is Poudre Precieuse Libre Effet Hale, €53. It’s a super-duper-sparkly loose powder bronzer that’s really pretty. Too dark for my skin, unfortunately, this is one that’s definitely more suited to night as it’s just a little glittery for day. With a tan, on yer holliers? Gorgeous.

Le Vernis come in Orange Fizz and Golden Sand, €21. I predict a riot for the coral-tastic Orange Fizz. Delish.

Lumières Facettes comes in four peachy, beigy, sun-kissed shades and even I, not a big fan of shimmer, swooned. It’s lovely , and will set you back €43.50. Last up we have one of Chanel’s Ombre d’Eau – they’re liquid metallic whatsits that you can use on eyes and as highlighters. This season’s shade is Seashore, and it’s €27.50.

So, given €100 to spend, what would you buy?

    I love the look of the Orange Fizz nail polish! I must go and try it out – not sure how well it would work with my skintone.

    The Lipari lip colour is absolutely gorgeous. A perfect dark pink with a bit of red/plum – - the perfect summer colour.

    I’m definitely going to check out the eye quad (I love Chanel eye shadows) and the lip glosses!

  • Hermione says:

    I want it all!

    Sadly, I don’t need anything so I’m going to have to be strong and resist the loveliness :roll:

    For €100 I would definitely pick up the orange fizz nailvarnish, the lumieres facettes and the ombre d’eau. I have to have that orange fizz for nails on the beach this summer!

    I’m so shocked – nothing actually grabs me in this collection! Very weird, as I usually drool all over new makeup collections and Chanel tends to be right up my street.

    Oh dear… maybe I’m ill?!
