Reverie Parisienne – Parisian dreams. Let’s see what Chanel brings us this spring, what their Parisian dreams are like.

This promo photo from Chanel website is so beautiful.

The collection does look very spring like indeed.

First we have a blush palette Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose. It’s a limited edition, and it’s awesome. It looks so gorgeous. This design alone makes me wanna buy it and use it. Such a cute pink lining on the box 🙂

And inside it…

This blush pretty much doesn’t give much color, couldn’t even do any swatches, because the color just doesn’t show on skin. It gives your cheeks just a touch of a healthy rosy glow. I like that.

Now to something I don’t like. The smell. It’s overpowering. Absolutely overpowering. I can’t say it’s unpleasant, but I’m sensitive to aroma in make up, and it’s too much for me. So, love the looks and feel of this blush, don’t appreciate the smell. The looks win though – I got it 🙂

There’s another blush in this collection joues contraste powder blush 190 Angelique.

S168196_XLARGE

It’s not a limited edition, this shade will join the permanent range, it’s a coral shade. I didn’t get this blush for exactly the reason I stated above dwelling on Jardin de Chanel Blush – I find the smell of Chanel blush to be too much. I think though, this shade is a nice addition to lip colours and eyeshadows in this collection.

Next we have two eyeshadow palettes: 236 Tisse Fantasie and 238 Tisse Paris. Both are limited editions.

I’ve skipped on eyeshadow palettes in several past Chanel make up collections, because I just didn’t find them interesting or exciting enough. But these palettes got my attention immediately, especially Tisse Paris.

Let’s take a closer look at the both eyeshadow palettes here.

Tisse Paris 238 first.

IMG_0130IMG_0131

In it we have left to right (although these shades are so tender they are very hard to capture in a swatch):

IMG_0140

a kind of shiny light pink,

a darker purplish pink,

a charcoal grey that’s more like an eyeliner than like an eyeshadow and

a shiny light yellowish shade, that’s more like white in real life.

Now, that’s a pity, if this shade were really light yellow, I’d be beyond myself with joy J Still, this palette is very nice, very spring like, it’s the kind of make up you can actually use for a lot of various occasions. I like it.

In Tisse Fantasie 236 we have left to right:

IMG_0134IMG_0135

IMG_0136

a warm shiny pink with a touch of orange to it,

a shiny white that can be used as a base for all other shades,

a shiny satiny green with a touch of yellow in it and

a warm chocolate brown, that’s more like an eyeliner.

This palette feels like a heavier make up kind of stuff, maybe, for going out or something. It’s pretty. Especially it will become ladies with hazel eyes. The palette looks good.

In this collection we have eight – eight! – lip shades in all kind of Chanel textures.

By the look of this collection, it seemed to me, it was a big promise in terms of vibrant orangey reds. Well, I got disappointed on that one. The shades are more coral or coral pink, if anything, than red. Pity.

Still we have: Rouge Allure in 154 Badine and 152 Insaisissable.

IMG_0145IMG_0203

Badine is a light pink with a touch of peach in it. It’s not shiny, a nude like shade. Very wearable.

IMG_0147IMG_0150

IMG_0149IMG_0152

Badine  is on the left, Insaisissable is on the right.

IMG_0157IMG_0155

Insaisissable (on the right) is what seemed to be reddish, but proved to be on the coral or pink coral side of things.

IMG_0151IMG_0153

IMG_0154IMG_0152

Then we have two Rouge Allure Velvets: 49 la Petillante and 50 la Romanesque.

IMG_0159IMG_0204

La Petillante is a rosy purple shade.

IMG_0160IMG_0163

IMG_0164IMG_0161

La Petillante is on top, La Romanesque is on the bottom.

IMG_0172IMG_0173

La Romanesque is a sultry purple.

IMG_0165IMG_0168IMG_0169IMG_0161

Next come two Rouge Coco Shines: 98 Etourdie and 97 Desinvolte.

IMG_0175IMG_0202

Again, it’s coral (Etourdie) and purple (Desinvolte), only in Rouge Coco Shine like more transparent texture.

Etourdie

IMG_0176IMG_0183IMG_0185IMG_0178

Desinvolte

IMG_0177IMG_0179IMG_0180IMG_0178

Etourdie is on top and on the left. Desinvolte is on the right and on the bottom.

IMG_0186IMG_0189

Finally, we have two lip glosses: 194 Crazy Fuchsia and 192 Fleur d’eau.

IMG_0190IMG_0197

Crazy Fuchsia is Fuchsia only in a very crazy kind of world. In real world it’s a very purple fuchsia.

IMG_0191IMG_0193

Fleur d’eau is that coral shade we’ve seen all through lipsticks in this collection.

IMG_0195IMG_0196

In the swatches here Crazy Fuchsia is on the left and on top. Fleur d’eau is on the right and on the bottom.

IMG_0199IMG_0201

As you can see, Crazy Fuchsia is more sheer, Fleur de eau is more transparent.

There are also two le crayon levres. I don’t generally use lip liners, they just don’t work for me, generally speaking. But this collection 91 Rose Delicat (warm pink) and 92 Capucine (vibrant coral) are matched to all the lipsticks and lip glosses shades of the collection so well, that I’m lured to buy them.

Capucine is on top here, Rose Delicat is on the bottom.

And then there’s a stylo yeux in 912 Ardoise.

Chanel-Stylo-Yeux-Waterproof-912-ardoise

It’s dark grey, so, it’s not really fun to me, and I didn’t get it.

To round up the collection there are three nail polish shades, all limited editions: 641 Tenderly, 643 Desirio, 645 Paradisio.

IMG_0119

Tenderly 641 is a dusty lavender.

IMG_0099IMG_0115

Those who don’t use lavender shades might actually use this elegant version of this shade.

IMG_0087IMG_0089

Those who don’t use lavender shades might actually use this elegant version of this shade.

Desirio 643 is a vibrant fuchsia.

IMG_0091IMG_0116

Nothing new here, I’ve definitely seen that in other brands.

IMG_0084IMG_0086

Paradisio 645 is light pearly silver. I’ve been waiting for a silver nail polish from luxury brands for a while now, so I like this.

All in all, it’s a nice spring collection with a lot of wearable shades. It’s elegant. If only it were not for the whole big coral instead of vibrant red lip shades disappointment…
