|Chanel Spring Summer 2013 Campaign Image|
*sighs* Chanel have done it again.
Just when I've finished with my Chanel Holiday/Christmas purchases (mental note: must write some review posts), they send me on the images for the SS13 LE collection, Printemps Précieux de Chanel. And they're just gorgeous.
|Chanel Spring Summer 2013 Campaign: the collection|
|The quad & the duo from the collection|
The new quad (Les Ombres Raffinement) features a pearly beige, a matte brown, a coppery mink and a taupe at €47, whereas the duo (Sable-Émouvant) has two shimmer shades; a beige and a warm brown - this one is a re-promote I believe.
There are also three Stylo Yeux Waterproof eyeliners in Santal (brown), Or Rose (rosy beige) and Béryl (lilac). Each of these are €22.50. Santal is a new shade whereas Or Rose and Béryl are both LE.
| (L) L'Eclatante, (R) La Favorite|
|(L) Fantasque, (R) Envoûtante|
The collection sees two new Rouge Allure lipsticks in Envoûtante (shimmering violet plum) and Captivante (brown with copper and amber shimmer), and two LE Rouge Allure lipsticks in Fantasque (soft rose with pearly reflects) and Précieuse (peach-warmed beige).
There are in addition, two new Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks in L'Eclatante (pink; matches Fracas nail polish) and La Favorite (bright coral).
There is one new Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss; Merveille (lilac and brown reflects) and one LE lipgloss offering, Attirance (coppery beige).
The two Crayon Lèvres (lipliners) in Rubellite (pink; matches L'Eclatante & Fracas) and Palissandre (a refined brown) are both new shades.
All the lipsticks and glosses are €30.50. The lipliners are €21.00.
|The three Le Vernis shades, L -> R: Fracas, Emprise, Accessoire|
There are three Le Vernis nail varnish shades being released with this collection; two are LE - Emprise (an opaque rosy beige) and Fracas (a vibrant candy-pink), and the third, Accessoire (deep muted red-brown plum), is a new permanent colour.
|L -> R: Accessoire, Emprise, Fracas|
All are €22.
The face section sees a new Joues Contraste blush in Frivole, a warm bright slightly shimmery apricot shade, at €37.
|The jewel of the collection; the highlighter|
The collection also features a LE powder highlighter, Poudre Signée de Chanel, which looks like a beautiful subtle warm peach-beige...
|Gorgeous... SS13 highlighter:|
Poudre Signée de Chanel
I love the attention to detail that you get in Chanel products. This highlighter is stamped with a pattern of camellia flowers, the Chanel double-C's and lipsticks, and looks like a very slightly warmer peachier version of the LE highlighting powder (Lumière Sculptée) from the Christmas 2011 collection:

Because of this, I'm unlikely to bother with it (it's €55 for reference).
Launching on 18th January, I'm already looking forward to these, in particular the Rouge Allure in Fantasque, the Le Vernis in Accessoire, and the lovely ladylike matchy-matchy Fracas, Rubellite and L'Eclatante trio.
