Chanel’s Summer 2014 makeup collection, Reflets d’Ete, is chock full of gorgeous brights. Bright and vivid, and almost reminiscent of the eighties.
Especially the purple mascara, Chanel Inimitable Waterproof Mascara Violet Touch. There was an orange mascara as well, which I passed on. Hard to imagine orange mascara being flattering on anyone other than a Chanel model. I loved the violet nail polish from the collection, but it was so close to YSL Rose Scabiosa and Butter London Molly Coddle that I just couldn’t justify it. Actually, I was ready to buy it and my daughter said “Mum are you crazy you basically have two polishes that colour already”…so….ahem #busted.
Chanel Le Vernis Tutti Frutti, Glossimer Scintillants in Sexy and the Violet Touch Mascara have been summer staples for me. I love them, and will surely be using them through the fall. There is something so eye brightening about the violet mascara. It is subtle, and only really shows up in bright light, yet brightens the eyes, making the colour pop (especially hazels & greens) and the whites look whiter. The hot fuchsia lip gloss is sheer, yet brightening. The nail polish is a happy, flattering shade that gives me perfect coverage in one coat. Hello.
As with all Chanel collections, their Summer 2014 offering did not disappoint. I loveth it all.
