Quick Swatch: Chanel Cruise 2017 Summer Makeup Collection

I just want to post some pictures and swatches here because this collection launched yesterday nationwide. I’ve been posting the nail colours on my Instagram account, so you can hop on there to have a look. There are 4 colours in total, and I have 3 of them. The Chanel Le Vernis (RM95) are easy to apply, and it seems like they even out themselves for a perfect application, except for 560 Coquillage which is thicker in texture, which makes it streaky and uneven.

 

 

For the lips, you can choose a soft sheer glossy touch with Rouge Coco Shine (RM120), with shades like sunny peach and warm nude, or go statement with Rouge Coco Stylo (RM120) in Sepia. Sepia is a pigmented warm reddish chocolate which gives off a dark sexy mood.

 

 

For this collection, Chanel released 2 shades for Stylo Yeux Waterproof (RM100) and for Inimitable Waterproof Mascara (RM130). The one I have to show you are Horizon, a very dark olive brown and Vert Profond, a deep green. The eyeliner is super pigmented and soft. You only need to use very light pressure to apply, or you’d end up with either a broken tip or a thick line. For a more precise cat eye using this eyeliner, I’d suggest using a brush for that flick. Makes life easier 😉

 

 

Here are the swatches

 

 

Last but not least, Le Beige Poudre Glow (RM200). No Summer collection is complete without a bronzer of some sort. There are 5 shades to choose, from subtle pinky beige to deep chocolate bronze. I have Medium Light and it’s just enough to give me that slight glow without looking a few shades darker. As you can see on my arm, it is more of an all over powder for a subtle warmth rather than making me look tanned. I don’t like to wear bronzers because some make me look muddy and dirty, but Medium Light suits me just right. I tried to capture it in photos, but it just won’t show. It’s quite annoying, really. That’s the problem with using sunlight. If you’re interested, you’ll just have to try it on yourself and find the right shade for you.

 

 

That’s it for today. I’ll put up some photos of me wearing these product in a later post. Watch out for my Sunday Stash Shopping series!

  • That Sepia does look like a statement when it comes to summer colors!

      It’s actually quite vampy! But the sheen of the lipstick makes it look less dramatic compared to a matte version.

  • I really like the looks of that bronzer but I would probably go a shade darker as I am darker than you. I need to see if it’s already out here.

      Ah yes, for a bronzer, I’d go a shade deeper too. This shade only adds glow and very slight warmth!
