Chanel have released the pics and info for their Spring makeup collection for 2011, called Les Perles de Chanel.
Pearls and Chanel go hand-in-hand and Peter Phillips, the Global Creative Director of Chanel Makeup has used the iridescent reflections of pearls as inspiration to design the fresh and radiant Les Perles de Chanel Spring 2011 Makeup Collection.
I always covet the Chanel makeup collections and it’s no different with the Les Perles de Chanel makeup collection! It’s a really gorgeous mix of shimmering peachy, pink and green shades with a little bit of iridescent greeny black pearl thrown in – oooh lovely!
The one thing I always really look forward to (and there are no surprises here!) is the nail polish collection from all of the new Chanel makeup collecitons (AndyLou has Chanel Khaki Vert nail polish and I have Chanel Gold Lame nail polish) and there is one loooovely stand out nail polish from the Spring Collection 2011 Les Perles de Chanel makeup collection… which I will get to soon!
So here are some some pics and all the info. I won’t leave you in suspense, first up the Chanel Spring Makeup colletion Les Perles de Chanel nail polishes.
There are 3 Le Vernis nail polishes in the Chanel Spring Makeup collection:
- Chanel Le Vernis Pearl Drop nail polish: a pure and white in natural daylight that reveals golden reflections under evening light
- Chanel Le Vernis Pêche Nacrée nail polish: a soft peach shade with a bronze effect
- Chanel Le Vernis Black Pearl nail polish: a pearly grey shimmering with deep blue and green reflections, like a black pearl from the Pacific
The Chanel Black Pearl nail polish looks gorgeous! It’s the polish the model is wearing in the Les Perles de Chanel look shot above. I need it! Yes, need not want!
