I know it's not even Christmas yet and Spring seems a long way off but I was lucky enough to sample some of the Chanel Spring 2012 collection that will hit stores in the new year. I have fallen in love with duo that came in the gorgeous white case pictured above.
In the case is the beautiful peachy pink 'Blush Horizon de Chanel' and a 'Rouge Coco Baume' both of which are beautiful products and perfect for a glowing and dewy Spring look.
The blusher is just so beautiful to look at, of course coming encased in a velvet wallet and packaged in the classic Chanel way. I love the colorful stripes going across the product, and the Chanel label embossed into the powder - it just makes for such a timeless and elegant product. The pay off of the blush is simply gorgeous (see below) and it just blends into a shimmering and glowing dusky peach pink. The formula is finely milled so it feels so silky upon application and just naturally blends into the cheek leaving a healthy and radiant finish. This product was used on the catwalk for the S/S12 show and the models looked so effortlessly and naturally beautiful. A product perfect for the Spring months.
The balm also comes in equally beautiful packaging, the height of sophistication for a lip balm that is for sure! This for me was an eagerly anticipated product, as I had heard about it previously and wanted to see how it faired against the amazing Rouge Coco Shine formulation, and I was not at all disappointed. The balm benefits from restorative properties and it really helps to keep lips hydrated and moisturised. I love that it has a thick formula but doesn't leave any residue and doesn't feel sticky. It keeps lips soft and supple.
These two wonderful Spring time products are part of Chanel's full Spring collection 'Les Harmonies de Printemps' and are due for release early next year. Watch this space.........
