The Best of Chanel Spring 2018 Collection

Chanel Neapolis: New City Collection is new for spring and features a nine-pan eyeshadow palette along with new lip colors, eyeliners, blush, and polishes (not purchased). I’ve just finished reviewing all of the products I purchased from the collection, so now we can see how everything rated from best to worst!

I was definitely most impressed by the Affresco Eyeshadow Palette, and I thought it was a fun, brighter offering for a season where we typically see more muted and washed out shades for. There were several lovely lip colors but all in the same shades I’ve seen Chanel do quite a few times, so they didn’t make my heart go pitter-patter. I’ve found Mare-Chiaro to work well for brightening up any springy eye look, but I do have a fondness for green eyeliner!

I think this is one of the best collections that Chanel has brought out for a long time. Beautiful eyeshadow shades, gorgoeus lipsticks and eyeliners – just stunning.

Chanel did a truly great job with the bulk of this collection! That e/s palette is SOLID. I’m having some internal conflict going on, though, because I also truly adore Foschia Rosa Joues Contraste blush and Entusiasta Allure Ink Liquid Lip Color!

Beautiful but I am going to try and resist. I have so much that I really want to focus on unusual, distinctly different and excellent performance this year.

Verderame and the eyeshadow palette are SO tempting. It’s nice to see Chanel put out a good e/s palette (separate from the Tisse quads, most of which have been good) that rates this highly.

The eyeshadow palette is actually very tempting, and I don’t say that easily when it comes to eyeshadow palettes. But there are just so many interesting shades!

I liked quite a few products from this collection, the eyeshadow palette was especially nice to see rating high.
I really liked Mare-Chiaro and Foschia Rosa.

Very solid. Leap quick, this will sell out fast, esp with the added boost in overall quality for the palette. So infinite in possibilities. Good job, Lucia!

The way those eye shadows are placed in the palette reminds me of the little colourful bricks I had when I was a kid – I just don’t remember what they were called!

I saw a video where Lucia was demonstrating how to create unique colours by mixing a vibrant shade with a less vibrant shade, noting that the palette is more designed to create these unique shades vs. applying a shadow one at a time. I plan to purchase the palette. I’ve have some pieces: the cream shadow (a beautifully wearable teal), both eyeliners (I’ll be getting a second Mare-Chiaro), and the Incantevole lipstick (gorgeous). I returned one of the lip balm/powders as it didn’t work for me. I hope Lucia can keep this level of quality, creativity, and cohesiveness in future collections.
