Hello beauties! I'm very excited to share the latest Chanel Le Blanc Collection and Guerlain Blanc de Perle Collection lineup and some swatches with you!!
The Blanc de Perle collection release from Guerlain this year included two concealers, a blush G in Sakura (Cherry Blossom blush), 3 lipsticks (re-promote from existing line so I won't delve into these), a meteorites compact, three makeup bases and primer and a mist.
The velvet pouch is in grey and lined with pink!! If you have bought the blush G from Guerlain spring (I think from 2011), you'll definitely want to collect this cherry blossom blush housed in WHITE compact!
Let's switch to Chanel Le Blanc release, you can click and enlarge all of the photos in this post:
New Le Blanc loose powder in 20 Opaline is a pastel pearl pink, if you have 10 Cristalline (released last year), the shimmer in Opaline is much less visible than in Cristalline. My legs felt weak at the sight of light pink powder!
There's three Le Blanc makeup primers released last year, this year there are four - with Lilac being a new shade.
In the above pic you can also see the new Joues Contraste in Candy, and a similar highlighter shade in pearl pink. Chanel JCs never show up much on my skin so I did not swatch them, sorry!
Now if you haven't known already, I"m a huge fan of lilac, lavenders and purples (only limited to primers and blushes though!) Lavender-based makeup primer can correct the yellowness in the skin and brighten dull skin. I think I'll go back and get this primer tomorrow...
The highlight of the collection - the Ombres Fleuries quad in Delicatesse!
All four shades perform far better than the normal Asian version of Chanel quads. These are pearly, buttery, smooth and swatched without primer. This quad is simply stunning. I'm not a huge fan of the fleur motif imprint on the shadows, but if you're a collector or a Chanel-phile, this quad is worth to be included in your arsenal.
And while at the counter, I played with the new Illusion d'Ombre in Convoitise, which is swatched on the left. I also swatched Illusion d'Ombre in Vision on the right. Convoitise is more beige-toned and subtle, less yellow than Vision. It'll be a great shade to use at the inner corners or just pat on top of your lids.
Are you eyeing anything from both collections? Hope this helps!!
