Spring Collections: Chanel

Smokey blue eye from Chanel this season? Dream come true!

Snag this gorgeous eye look with the new Bleu Celestes eyeshadow quad, Ombre d'Eau liquid eyeshadow in Rivage and Glacier, and eyeliner in Blue Jean. I've been in love with those Ombre d'Eau shadows since their introduction a few years ago - they NEVER crease. And the blue shadow quad is just perfect - dramatic and interesting but still refined and chic (so Chanel).

And if you're craving something a little more subtle but just as beautiful, get your paws on the Fleurs de Chanel, a palette of four pastel powder shadows in the same lovely camellia shape as last season's lip palette.

Of course no Chanel collection would be complete without a must-have nail color, and this time it's Blue Satin. Sorry to say I feel like they missed the boat this time, although the polish is already sold out on Chanel's website. We were talking about navy nails on this blog nearly three months ago, and all the other major brands have already had their navy craze (OPI Russian Navy, Sally Hansen Navy Venom, to name a few).

Still, if you must, Blue Satin is available on the Nordstrom website. And here's the rundown on the whole collection:

  • LES 4 OMBRES Eye Shadow Quad in Bleu Celestes

  • 4 FLEURS DE CHANEL YEUX in Feeries

  • OMBRE D'EAU Fluid Iridescent Eyeshadow in Rivage (pale gold) and Glacier (shimmering soft blue)
