Chanel | Spring 2018 Dernières Neiges de Chanel Collection: Review and Swatches
Inspired by the change of season from Winter to Spring, the new Chanel Dernières Neiges de Chanel Collection "captures the simplicity and purity" of this special time of the year. Featuring a selection of shimmery pearly whites and soft delicate pinks, the collection is available for a limited time. I have a couple of pieces from the collection to share with you today.

Chanel | Spring 2018 Dernières Neiges de Chanel Collection | Premieres Fleurs Harmony of Powders: Review and Swatches

Chanel Dernières Neiges de Chanel Collection | Premières Fleurs Harmony of Powders ($80 CAD):
Described as a highlighting powder, the Premières Fleurs Harmony of Powders features three natural spring colors pressed into a delicate, Asian-inspired design. Included is a pearly soft white, a light pale peach, and a natural glowy rose. The floral-scented formulation is very sheer and beneath the sparkly overspray, the actual powder gives no more than a subtle sheen to the skin. I tried packing the peach and the rose onto the brush for a more intense application but even that resulted only in a subtle hint of peach glow. Overall, this is a beautifully packaged powder. However, the formulation lacks pigmentation and therefore only works as a subtle allover skin illuminator similar to the likes of Guerlain Meteorites Pearls or Hourglass Ambient Light.

This is a single eyeshadow in an icy pink satin with a hint of soft golden shimmers. The formulation is very rich and silky. While the pigmentation is on the sheerer side, the color is buildable. Included are a mini-sized sponge applicator and shader brush.

Housed in the classic Chanel gold and black lipstick tube, the Rouge Coco Shine in "134 Renouveau" is a juicy sheer coral red. The color appears a little shimmery in the tube but on the lips, it provides a translucent, shimmer-free shine. Although sheer, the lipstick applies very evenly and feels super hydrating and comfortable. The wear isn't great but given how slick and lightweight the formulation is, that's not unexpected.
