Chanel Spring 2013 Makeup Collection: Printemps Precieux de Chanel

Named for the precious beauty of Spring, the new colour collection PRINTEMPS PRÉCIEUX DE CHANEL celebrates Gabrielle Chanel’s codes of simplicity and sophistication. Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup Peter Philips channels the season’s splendor with a collection of contrasts. Elegant neutrals complement softto- sultry pinks on face and lips, while nails are adorned with vivid polish.

Poudre Signee de Chanel Illuminating Powder ($68.00) (Limited Edition)

Embossed with iconic emblems of CHANEL, the powder creates a naturally luminous effect in two ways. The blend of soft peach and warm beige shades applies with a new sponge applicator for a sheer, radiant glow on cheekbones or with a powder brush for natural, allover radiance.

    I’m not gonna lie, i’m a bit disappointed with this. I saw it at nordstrom yesterday and nothing really popped out at me except for that illuminating powder.

  2. Nes

    the model has such a gorgeous lip color on!

  3. Alison

    Hmmm that eyeshadow quad Sounds right up my alley. Can wait for your reviews!

  4. Liz

    I love the models soft, pretty makeup. Very nice. Chanel is not in my budget, so I will probably pass.

    The colour selection of the quad speaks to me; hope it is good! The Stylo eye pencils look interesting too. Funnily enough, none of the nailpolish appeals to me (an unusual thing!).

    Would you happen to have any info on the eyeshadow duo I spot on the photo? It looks like Sable Emouvant (last summer, LE). It’s great if they’re bringing it back!

    A classic collection, nothing new but still pretty. The powder is beautiful and Fracas looks gorgeous ! I prefer Rouges Coco for the spring collections so I’ll skip. It’s the only thing that seems new, in fact RA colours are classic.

  7. I don’t own a single Chanel product, but as usual, I find their product photography absolutely gorgeous

  8. Yellowlantern

    I like the way it’s photographed with the paper leaves and flowers. None of the products are really standing out to me. Maybe I’ll feel differently if I see them swatched.

    Those lipsticks in the bottom right corner look way too frosty for my taste, but it may just be the lighting throwing me off.

  9. I’ve never purchased anything Chanel, but the highlighter and blush are tempting me!

  10. Chiara

    Yes! I have been waiting for this! I have a very soft spot for anything Chanel and I think they always put out some gorgeous shades! Definately worthy of the name ‘high-end’!

      Chiara I couldn’t have said it better. I have such a soft spot for Chanel, their collections always capture me.

    I already bought a couple of the lipsticks, glosses and one of the eyeliners – Or Rose. Saw swatches and some of this is gorgeous.

  12. Avatar of rebecca blueraccoon

    The powder looks good, and maybe some of the lipsticks, but I think I’ll wait for reviews first.

  13. The highlighter and Frivole blush will DEFINITELY be mine!!! :D

  14. Avatar of Virginia Virginia

    I haven’t been wowed by Chanel in a very long time. The blush and powder are the only interesting things.

  15. Poona

    It’s available at the Chanel counters! I just bought the illuminator , shadow quad and Emprise nail polish, I can’t wait to try! They are all very pretty but aren’t properly displayed yet. The illuminator looks amazing, I’m sure it will sell out quickly.

    I Love the Powder. It is so beautyfull. I want to buy also the or Rose Eyeliner and the Lipstick from the Model.

  17. Avatar of Amanda Amanda L

    It looks like at least some of these are online now at Nordstrom!

  18. Mimi

    The illuminating powder is a must have. It’s the most gorgeous highlighter I’ve ever had and I’ve had a lot of them over the years. Excellent for us older ladies as it doesn’t show up in the crowsfeet. It’s really lovely.

  19. What lipstick is the model wearing???

  20. Avatar of Brenda Brenda

    this is just so….PRETTY!! I want it all!!!

  21. Lark

    Beautiful! Since the nail polish was a bargain at USD $25, I want to try more. The highlighter and lipsticks look amazing.

  22. Avatar of Elise ProperIntro

    I just want the coral lipstick!

  23. VickyM

    Chanel is the face of elegance and beauty again! For sure I will purchase at least one product if not more! :D One of my two top high end brands, I love, love Chanel :) .

  24. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    The Illuminating Powder looks more like a work of art collectable than something I really need, but it looks lovely. But I am excited to see if Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour “La Favorite” is worth picking up, or “Or Rose,” “Beryl Lilac,” “Envoutante,” or “Captivante.”

  25. Avatar of Celia Celia

    Can anyone tell me which lip colour the model is wearing in the promo shots? I thought it was the Rouge Allure Velvet Matte in L’Eclatante but now i’m not sure! Not too many have reviewed these and the shades seem really bright in the swatches I have seen. If anyone has a link or can tell me, I’d appreciate it!
    Thanks Heaps

    I tried some of this stuff today. The illuminating powder is fantastic! I really didn’t think I would like the quad, since the browner eyeshadow colors don’t usually suit me, but I was quite fond of it as well. I really liked the idea of the L’Eclatante lipstick, but something about the shade on me didn’t work quite right, so I tried Rouge Coco Chalys, which was similar but looked better on me. That’s not to say L’Eclatante is bad – just a bit off on me. I really liked the Envoutante lipstick as well. It’s an unusual color choice for spring, but that can be a good thing! I have little spots of polish on my thumbnail to think about. Love the colors and the quality of Chanel polish, but none of them have the same originality as Malice in the Holiday collection or Black Pearl a couple of years ago, so we’ll see.

    The Rouge Allure lipstick in Captivante is my favorite!

  28. Avatar of celeste Celeste Cirinna

    Purchased Frivole a few days ago. I have fair/light skin and while the blush looks too bright in the pan, it goes on softly, and is buildable. It is a gorgeous shade and is wearable even on these cold winter days. I love it!

  29. Bunga

    Christine please review that rouge allure velvet in l’eclatane.. It looks sooooooo good on the model! I really want to have it, but i want to make sure my self first by look up your review :D
