CHANEL Cruise Collection 2017 is a very solar makeup collection; it really reminds me of the blue sky, the tanned skin and the relaxing & fun days at the beach.
It’s the first cruise collection for Lucia Pica who pays attention to earth tones & pops of coral and who:
“has created a collection of makeup which encapsulates instinctively the beauty and warmth of a CHANEL Summer; a tribute to the free and solar personality of Mademoiselle. “
CHANEL Cruise Collection 2017 includes:
- Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour in Medium Light, Medium, Medium Deep and Deep (€51,00);
- Rouge Coco Shine in Golden Sun and Golden Sand – limited edition (€ 36,00);
- Rouge Coco Stylo in Panorama – limited edition and Esquisse (€36,00);
- Le Vernis Longue Tenue in Sargasso, Coquillage, Coralium and Sea Whip (€25,00).
CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Luminous Colour in Medium Deep (€51,00/ 12g) | This is currently my favourite bronzer!
It’s been a month since I received it and I’m wearing it every day.
It’s so easy to apply and so pigmented, it’s just a pleasure to wear it.
It is housed in a beige lacquered compact with mirror on the entire inner lid and includes a demilune natural-bristle brush with white bristles.
The super fine texture has a beautiful undulating wave pattern and a very discreet flowery sent which dissipates immediately after application.
This latest version was upgraded with mineral butters and beeswax; it is easy to blend, it’s buildable and it gives the skin that healthy-looking radiance which looks like almost coming from within.
CHANEL Rouge Coco Shine in 527 Golden Sun (€ 36,00/ 3g) | This lipstick is just perfect for summer at the beach when the skin is tanned and the pop of peach on the lips is just the perfect shade.
It is hydrating, with a creamy texture that is easy to wear and to apply (I don’t even need a mirror when I apply it). Staying power 2-3 hours (without eating or drinking).
CHANEL Rouge Coco Stylo in 227 Esquisse (€36,00/ 2g) | Another beautiful shade!
It is housed in a retractible format with a texture that is buttery smooth and glides effortlessly along the lips.
It’s definitely more pigmented than the Rouge Coco Shine 527 Golden Sun and with a better staying power: 3-4 hours (without eating or drinking).
This is the perfect coral shade for spring and summer.
CHANEL Le Vernis Longue Tenue in 560 Coquillage (€25,00/ 13ml) | I can’t wait to paint my toes with this ‘milky orange’!
In my mind this shade looks even better on the toes than on the nails during summer when the skin is tanned and we are wearing sexy strappy sandals.
This peachy hue is completely opaque in two coats and the shimmer which can be seen in the bottle doesn’t show up on the nails.
It has a glossy finish and a staying power of 5+ days with top coat.
I’m comparing it with another CHANEL polish, the 539 June which is a few years older, I think I bought it in 2011.
I must say that CHANEL really improved their polish formulas, 539 June needs 3 coats in order to be completely opaque and the staying power is 3-4 days.
However I must say, that CHANEL hues really preserve perfectly over the years, they are the most long lasting nail polishes with a formula that doesn’t change at all.
