    So for summer, we go blue…

  2. Chelsea

    Forget the makeup. I want those earrings in the first picture! Although, I do love that nail polish.

  3. Julia

    Wow, that first picture is so beautiful!

  4. I love the second picture. The blue eyeliner is gorgeous and I love the subtle blush too!

  5. Rachael

    I’m loving the earrings these ladies are wearing!

  6. Ryan

    Its unreal how flawless their skin is. Either they already have perfect skin or that is one great foundation.

      Chanel foundations and powders seem to have incredible light reflecting qualities. We used to use the Chanel face powders in some varnishes when I was doing art restoration.

    • Adrienne

      I’m sure the models have great skin, and Chanel does have great foundations. They also have great lighting, great photographers, and great graphic designers with great photoshopping skills. We can all wish to have skin like that (hellz yeah i wish i did!), but more likely than not, it is indeed, unreal.

  7. Allison

    The nail polish looks very similar to Essie Barbados Blue! Maybe it’s a possible dupe

  8. love the ice on these models! want!

    i think the lip balm, lip pencil, and lipstick should go under the category of lips, not cheeks…?

  9. The pictures are beautiful! The collection seem very glamorous!

    Well, it’s gorgeous but the blush ” Rose Ecrin ” is a repromote. It was launched last fall ( 2011 ), other products have just been launched here ( the Coco lip balm and the Coco lipstick Superstition ), only the eyeshadows and nail polish seem really new to me but I may be wrong, all the more as you have different products in the US, for US products it’s the same, some never come here.

    • Hi Dominique,

      I don’t think anywhere in the post it says that these are all brand new products – only the products that indicate that availability is in the future are new, which are part of the an exclusive collection launching in July. HTH.

      • Dominique


        Thank you for responding, Christine. Some collections are not available in Bordeaux, I wonder if this one ( esp. the nail polish ) will come to us, so far I know the Jeans nail polishes from Chanel were only available in Paris.

  11. Carmel

    i am out of my mind with wanting the new illusion d’ombre shadows!

  12. Carolina

    Finally a Chanel collection I wouldn’t kill to have. 😀 Blue is my favourite colour in all things, but it’s just something I cannot make work on makeup. I’m almost giddy to see a Chanel nail polish I DON’T want. lol

  13. GORGEOUS! Wow, what a stunning look….not in love with the poofed up hair but the makeup, jewelry (OMG the earrings!) and clothing…love the polish but not sure I would buy it.

  14. Aimey

    I absolutely LOVE the shades of blue! Not too subtle but light enough for a fancy, girly look even men would appreciate! (I would think lol) & OH MYY, that nail polish. I MUST get my hands on it!

  15. Tabby

    Omg that girl in the second photo looks like she could be drew Barrymores sister! I love blue!

  16. Diva G~~

    I love you Chanel!! looking forward to the Hydra Beauty Serum. And of course THE entire collection <3 <3

  17. Hisa

    That polish looks quite pretty… It looks slightly holo? Or is that a pearly finish?

  18. I was trying to find the Chanel Glossimers for 2012, specifically the color called Honeysuckle, I had seen in Coastal Living Magazine
