Chanel Summer 2012 makeup - a mix of beige, peach, coral, orange, rose, bronze & gold gorgeousness…
I’ve swatches some of my favourites from the collection to give you an idea of how they look on the skin.
Sable Beige & Sable Rose - beautiful silky smooth compacts that apply to the skin like velvet. Beige, a soft golden caramel; Rose, a peachy pink toned golden bronze.
For me, Calypso Glossimer - a bright orange with gold shimmer is the stand out lip product, but En Vogue Rouge Coco Shine is the one that I think suits me best as it’s more of a pinky toned coral, despite looking quite orange in the bullet.
Sirocco Glossimer is a very pale gold shimmer, a bit blah on its own but makes other shades pop when layered on top and shimmers beautifully in the sunlight. Personally I wouldn’t invest in something like this - I’d much rather pay for colour and find a cheaper dupe for something so subtle.
Peche Kohl is a peachy toned bronzer eyeliner, which is really lovely, but a little bit too subtle to justify the price for me. Not that I like my makeup to be garish, but if I’m splashing out on a luxury product I’d like it to add something to my face!
The same swatches in a slightly softer light, which shows En Vogue (left) in particular more true to the actual colour.
In these pics I’m wearing the Sable Rose bronzer and I don’t think it suits me at all. The beauty assistant applied it quite heavily as a blush and I was shocked at how orange toned it looked on me. (I was secretly quite relieved!)
What do you think?
