Thoughts on Chanel Spring 2010

I must admit that I have no photos for you today because when I was at the mall it was already very dark outside : /. However, Lina at The Beauty Look Book has beautiful photos that I will link you to here.

Lets start with the much talked about quad 18, Kaska Beige. It's DEFINETLY worth all the talk you've heard! It's gorgeous, not too shimmery, pigmented, silky. Soo pretty. It's got a creamy beige [more satin I think], a golden sand color, a plummy medium brown and an absolutely beautiful chocolate brown color. It might actually make me cross some MAC things off my list and go for this instead.

The new Jous Contraste blush Imprevu reminded me [before I saw it] of the one they released last spring, Fandango. Wrong! Imprevu is more peachy/tawny, where Fandango is more rosey bronze. I thought Imprevu was very shimmery and could go a bit dirty on lighter skintones, but for medium skins it should work perfectly.

The next much talked about item was the new face powder, Empreinte de Chanel Poudre Eclat Illuminatrice. It's very pretty and has a nice design that doesn't fade for quite some uses, but I found that there was a bit of glitter [not even that big, but I love my shu uemura barely noticeable glow ons] that I didn't like. It's golden!

The two single eyeshadows are all so pretty and great quality. There was Trace, a dark warm brown, and Sillage, a lighter pinky frosted nude.

There is also a new Ombre D'eau, liquid shadow in Torrent. It's a beautiful smokey olived green, leaning to the warm side. Chanel describes it as khaki.

The new glossimers were pretty but also very sheer. I have my eye on Maline though, a gold shimmer. The other one is Futile, the pink counterpart to Maline.

I didn't see the lipsticks or the nail polishes as I went by very quickly, but this collection is really tempting me to pick up my first Chanel!
