Spring 2016 – Chanel

A few sites have shared more details about Chanel’s Spring / Summer 2016 /2017 Collection…and we all know that Chanel has quite the influence with trends in the beauty category!  (Anyone remember the surge of mint polish some years ago!?)

I love the ad image expressly because the pairing of indigo, purple and koolaid red is dynamite!!!  Perfect on the sky blue backdrop – simple, in part tonal, with a bold pop.

The fashion show was bursting with color, also, while a sheer denim blue was most predominant for the girls’ gazes…

Le Vernis Nail Gloss in 684 Sunrise Trip is a stunning purple indigo – it’s edgy, but there’s something sophisticated about it.  I feel like even if I saw this on someone without knowing the brand (or how much it cost!), I’d say it was incredibly chic (as opposed to “too much.”)  It’s wearable, and inoffensive.

The Illusion d’Ombre shadows come in three shades – Moonlight Pink, Ocean Light and Griffith Green.  They’re heavier for Spring colors, I’d agree, but I don’t feel like they too Autumnal or anything.  They have a more serious, eco tone, I feel like.  The rose gold is lovely!

Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow quad in Beverly Hills definitely has the flavor of what we saw on the runway – not just on the ladies’ eyes, but also in the clothing.  The colors feel nautical and sophisticated with a bolt of turquoise thrown in for edge.

Then there is the Sunkiss Ribbon face palette…a wonderful mix of hot shades, nude pink and bronze.  I’d love to see a swirled swatch of this to see what comes across most strongly – it’s certainly lovely to look at!

The lippies, Rouge Coco Shine, come in three luscious shades: Shipshape, Mighty and Energy.  These remind me of spring berries, or punchy popsicles – love the colors.

There are few other items to round out the collection – I feel like it has a nice balance of cool and hot here, blending blues with vibrant pinks and red.  I am curious to see the spinoffs that surface in response to these!
