CHANEL SPRING SUMMER 2018 COLLECTION

The other week I received a very exciting email from the lovely team at *Chanel inviting me along to the preview of their brand new *Spring Summer 2018 collection! I’m such a Chanel fangirl (who isn’t!?) so I was super excited to get a sneak peek at the range and check out some new makeup goodies. Lucia Pica is the Global Creative Makeup and Colour Designer for Chanel (WOW!!!) and this year’s Spring Summer collection was inspired by her undying love for Naples, Italy. Each product within the collection reflects the vibrant colours of the city and I’m super excited to show you just how stunning the *Neapolis range really is.
You’ve probably heard me rave about my love for the *Chanel Le Vernis a billion times (the shade ‘Beige Beige’ is my absolute FAVOURITE) so it’s no surprise that these beautiful pastel polishes were the first Chanel goodies to catch my eye. Within the Neapolis collection are the shades ‘Nuvola Rosa’ – a delicious baby pink, ‘Verde Pastello’ – a dreamy mint green, ‘Aranci Vibrante’ – a daring vibrant orange, and ‘Giallo Napoli’ – a beautiful bright yellow. I don’t tend to stray from my nude comfort zone too often, but these colours are SO stunning that I think I’m going to have to take a risk and try something different! I’ve got a feeling that mint green is going to be my go-to as soon as the sun makes an appearance. B-e-a-utiful!
I was super excited to discover some new eyeshadow shades in the Neapolis collection. I’m a sucker for their *Ombre Première Longwear Cream Eyeshadows because they’re really easy to use, super buildable and stay pretty much perfect from morning til’ night. This one in the shade *‘Verderame’ is new to the range and I’m totally obsessing over that sea green colour…stunning right!? Also new to the collection is the beautiful *Les 9 Ombres Eyeshadow palette which has a whole range of gorgeous shades from shimmering pearly pink, to deep petrol blue. I’m excited to play around with this palette and see what kind of looks I can create!
I wanted to take a second to mention this beautiful *Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade ‘Nero Volcanic’ which is absolutely stunning. I can totally see myself using this along my upper and lower lash lines as a change to my usual brown liner. I’ve also been feeling the urge to rock a soft wing lately and I feel like this liner is just the right tool to create that look! Of course I would finish things off with a couple of coats of the gorgeous *Dimensions De Chanel Mascara for some added va va voom!
I am OBSESSED with the *Chanel Rouge Coco Glosses so I was super excited to discover some new additions to the collection. First up we have the shade ‘Aphrodite’ which is the bright blue tube! On first impressions Aphrodite looks terrifying (anyone else thinking of Joey from Friends when they see this? lol) but it’s actually pretty much colour-less. It’s super sheer but if you apply this on top of something like a true red lipstick it gives it more of a pinkish tone which is cute. Also new to the collection is ‘Sibylla’ which is a pretty pink, ‘Poppea’, a gorgeous red, and the limited edition shade ‘Parthenhope’ which looks like a sheer, shimmering peach kinda shade. Defo try the Rouge Coco Glosses if you haven’t already!
Next up are these beautiful lip to cheek products, but what’s super annoying is I can’t actually find the link to them on the Chanel site! Maybe they’re coming out soon? Basically while I was at the collection preview one of the makeup artists applied a light layer of the light pink shade (on the right) to my lips, cheeks and eyelids and it looked absolutely stunning! The product itself is really creamy and creates a lovely natural-looking flush of colour on the skin. I’m really excited about these so I hope they’re released soon!
The last product I want to tell you guys about is the incredible *Poudre A Lèvres which is an entirely new product to the Chanel collection. This is a lip balm and lip powder duo and I’ve never seen anything like this before! Basically what you do is apply the balm with your finger tips and then use the brush to tap some of the coloured powder onto the centre of the lips before blending it out with the fingertips. I’ve always been really into that effortless lip stain effect (Jeanne Damas slays that look!) and I think this product is going to be amazing at achieving that.
I’m always excited to discover the Chanel collections and I’m really looking forward to playing around with some of these products. Which is your favourite product from the *Neapolis collection? Leave me a comment and tell me know which one you’re swooning over the most!
