Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss from the Spring 2013 Precieux de Printemps de Chanel Collection
They were the first items that captured my eyes on the display - not really a display, just a grouping of items because the official display had not arrived from Chanel. The testers look like lip glosses, so one can see the colors housed inside the normally black tubes shown below. I was smitten from first glance.
The spring shades are sheer and pretty - not dramatic or theatrical - and are perfect for any time of year. I swooned as I tested. Then I came home and took swatch photos in late afternoon with a setting sun. I think I was able to capture their magic. I applied them "normally," without excess painting on my arm, using their own applicators.
This spring collection from Chanel has just started to arrive at Chanel counters. I purchased my initial items at Saks Chevy Chase. If you absolutely cannot wait for this collection to arrive at your local Chanel counter, give Georgia, Loyd, or Maria a call at (240) 497-5363.
