coming soon from Chanel

I passed by my favorite Chanel counter and I was told they’re expecting the summer collection earlier than scheduled and it’s arriving any day now at Nordstrom.

I was told the stylo eye shadows are Chanel’s version of the shadow stick. What makes them different is that they are a sheer wash of color. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Why would I want to buy a shadow stick for a sheer wash of color? I wouldn’t. I will reserve judgement until I have played with them. I am excited about the limited edition lip shades though as well as that gorgeous intense coral (Lilis) and metallic blue green (Azure).

Now for a ship date around mid-May, there’s the Avant-Première Collection. Now I don’t have much info but it looks like the colors are either new or repromotes and there’s only one limited edition, the beautiful peach pink polish in Starlet which I will definitely be getting.

Chanel RA Extrait de Gloss in Merveille and Attirance | Spring 2013

Ever since my first Extrait de Gloss, I know it’s become my favorite formula. So this time around I didn’t even think twice about buying the two glosses that came with the Chanel Spring 2013 Collection.

According to Nordstrom

CHANEL reveals the next generation of lip gloss—with colour so rich and shine so intense it could only be inspired by the iconic lipstick, Rouge Allure. Bold colour combines with the smoothest, silkiest gel texture for luxurious wear and deeply dramatic effect. Lips feel comfortable—never sticky or tacky—and look luminous, full and sensuous for hours. The double-sided, flocked applicator is beveled to deliver ultra-precise definition.

I like it because…

  • the formula is sticky but not overly so, sticky enough so it lasts longer on the lips. It is mildly hydrating on my lips.
  • it lasts longer than most lip gloss I own
  • the shades in this collection is perfect for spring and summer
  • the packaging is so classically chic

I wish…

  • the tube is not so heavy

I highly recommend this gloss as well as the two shades in this collection. It will be perfect from spring to summer.

Let’s take a look…
