When i saw the pictures of Chanel's new spring collection, Printemps Precieux, i knew it would be hard to resist! The collection consists of beautifully feminine pink shades- from hot pinks to light nudes. I picked up three items, including the standout piece in my opinion, the Illuminating Powder.
The limited edition illuminating powder is absolutely beautiful, embossed with the iconic Chanel emblems of Camellia's and the double C's. It's almost too pretty to use! It was incredibly expensive, but i just couldn't resist it. Besides the gorgeous packaging, the highlighter itself has received outstanding reviews. It's a very light, pale gold with a beautiful sheen. For dry skin types i think you could totally wear it all-over, but for oily skins like myself, it's best reserved for the high points of the face- so the cheekbones, cupids bow and brow bone. It's going to be perfect for creating the much-coveted, dewy complexion during the spring.
I also picked up one of the Rouge Allure's in 'Fantasque', number 112. You know how much i love my nude lippies, and i just couldn't resist this one! Although it looks a little dark in the picture, it's actually a pale peachy-pink with a golden sheen. It complements both the highlighter and the nail polish perfectly- in fact, all of the products are very complementary to each other. It's a perfect everyday appropriate colour, that complements the soft pink hues of the collection. If you love nude lipsticks but struggle to find a colour that doesn't wash you out or look too pale, then i definitely suggest taking a look at this one.
Whilst i originally intended to pick up 'Fracas', the hot pink, i actually preferred the more subtle option which was 'Emprise', number 569. 'Emprise' is a soft, peachy-pink nude with a subtle frosty sheen. It's unlike anything else in my collection and perfect for the upcoming spring- especially with the pastel trends. It's a very soft, feminine colour that will look great with any outfit- i can't wait to use it! Whilst Chanel doesn't offer the most long-wearing formula's, they do deliver on beautiful and unique colours.
Overall, my top pick would definitely be the limited edition highlighting powder- especially if your an avid Chanel fan like myself. I'm very tempted to go back and purchase the hot pink lipstick in 'L'Eclatante' too! Whilst the colours aren't groundbreaking in their originality, they're incredibly wearable and feminine, and in my opinion, that's all i can ask for in a spring collection.
What did you think of the collection?
