Chanel Spring 2013 Collection Swatches - Printemps Precieux

Good evening all :D Today I have selected item swatches for you from the Chanel Spring 2013 collection. I dropped into Myer today just as they were closing and managed to get good swatches of a few selected items...

Clockwise from top: Chanel Joues Contraste in Frivole, Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliners in Or Rose and Beryl (Both LE), Chanel Raffinement Quad, Chanel Extrait de Gloss in Attirance (LE) and Chanel Rouge Allure in La Favourite.

While I am not a huge fan of Chanel's baked quads, Raffinement seems to have a much more softer and refined texture. It is also well pigmented. Frivole is just amazing, melts into the skin creating a natural effect. La Favourite is a bright corally pink that is just gorgeous for spring. Attirance is a simple topper or natural gloss for days when you want a no fuss, no brainer look. The eyeliners are great quality, though not as soft as the Giorgio Armani ones.

Basically these are the things I am planning to get over the next few weeks. Lucky for me, only the eyeliners and gloss is LE so I can purchase those first and buy the remainder later...

I did a staying power test of the eyeliners by using a dry tissue to rub all products away and guess what, they held up amazingly well! Or Rose seemed to have flaked off a little bit there, but I overapplied the product there anyway and it wasn't a fair test. I think they both have superb lasting powers. Personally I think that Or Rose is a little too warm to wear on the lower waterline but Beryl can do that perfectly.

Hope you had a great day!



  1. Hi, I absolutely love the Beryl shade, so frustrated that I can't get it online in Aus - can you tell me what they retail for in Myers? thanks
