Chanel Summer 2016 In the Summer Light Collection

I’m very, very late with this one but there are two products in here that I’m in love with that I wanted to show you – I also still saw stock in store last week so all isn’t lost.

This year’s summer collection is the perfect combination of glowy, bronzed and bright. There are six very pretty glosses, five nail polishes that are a mix of metallics and brights, two earthy liners and then the stars of this show, in my opinion – two Les Beiges compacts, and a gorgeous Les 4 Ombres.

Of the two Les Beiges compacts I was immediately drawn to Duo No1. One half is a deep, cool toned contour shade that has the perfect amount of pigment, and the other half is either a soft peachy blush or a highlight, depending on your skin tone.

The les 4 ombres EMPREINTE DU DÉSERT is so beautiful I admired it for ages before I started using it. The shades are perfectly buttery in typical Chanel style, and they work well together or with other shades – I can’t get enough of this palette.

If you’d like to get your hands on any of the products from this collection it’s worth checking at your local counter – the next one launches towards the middle of next month, so don’t take too long though.

    Goodness but their prices have increased. I absolutely adore Le Volume mascara and when I got mine it was around R350. (Ok that was 6 months ago. ) If you ever have a blog sale – I am first on the list.

      They’ve definitely had some steep increases – as have everything and everyone else, it seems ???

    Oooh they are both so gorgeous! Chanel certainly seems to get it right every time.

      They can’t do much wrong in the way of makeup!

    I bought the eyeshadow quad. It’s sooooo nice! As you said, soft and buttery. I love bronze/natural shades, so it’s perfect. I use the green to line my lower lash, for that little bit of colour. Definitely the one product from the collection that’s a must have.

      I agree – the shades and texture are just amazing. I love that their limited edition products are the same great quality as their permanent ones – it’s not the case with all brands.
