I spy Spring 2013: Chanel

Chanel was the first high-end cosmetics brand that I ever tried, starting with a tube of Rouge Coco in Perlé. It was the first lipstick I ever tried that smelled really nice, went on smoothly, and had a shade that was subtle but still really pretty. From that first shade, I went on to buy two shades from the Rouge Coco Shine line (Boy and Antigone) and one from the Rouge Allure Velvet line (La Distinguée). I love all of them, and I don’t really feel all that bad spending on Chanel lipsticks because I know that I will get the quality that I expect.

With all of that said, I missed out on their Holiday 2012 collection. I was eyeing the Harmonie du Soir quad, but I had already gotten myself a pretty similar, though not exactly the same, quad—Guerlain’s Turandot. The upcoming Spring 2013 collection and Les Delices 2013 one have got my heart all a-flutter, however, so I’m sharing the pictures I found with you.

You can read more about the collection on Chic Profile, which is where I also got the images and collection information from. (See also: more info.)

I’m eyeing the lipsticks (maybe Envoutante or L’Ecletante), one of the eyeliners, and maybe the blush!

Can you say pretty? Ah, I can’t wait to see this in person! Although, it does look a little bit like the quad I am eyeing from the Guerlain Spring 2013 collection. Yikes!

This seems like a perfect eye base to me.

For this round, I’m only super interested in the quad. The lipsticks are pretty, but they seem way too similar to the ones I already have.


  1. I think I want La Favorite! And the blush! Should start saving up immediately haha since I’m going to get Perles du Paradis, too.

    • See, I wanted both of the Rouge Allure Velvet lipsticks, but if I stuck to one, I would get the other one. I think those are worth saving up for. I’m drawn to the blush, too! 🙂

  2. Style Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in Beryl looks so sweet and perfect for lower lash line!! Rouge Allure Velvet Lipsticks are also screaming for me! thanks for sharing!

  3. My Lucite Dreams says

    Very curious about the rouge allures! They look lovely! First time I’ve seen this 🙂
