Coming Attraction: Chanel Les Delices de Chanel for Spring 2013

Reader Nemo asked a question about Les Delices de Chanel, which was an Asia exclusive, but now, I've learned, will be shipped to Saks Fifth Avenue Chanel counters on May 6.

There are some stunning pieces within the collection. The eye palette, the limited-edition Ombres Fleuries Délicatesse, contains light green, white, pink, and purple shades.

There are two Rouge Coco Shines: the limited-edition Peach Sugar and Delicious Pink. These may be renamed for the U.S., and I cannot see from this display photo whether we will receive both in this country.

It's also a bit hard to see in this display photo whether we will get the limited-edition Joues Contraste Powder Blush (Fards à Joues Poudre) in Fun, a shiny white with a pearl luster. That may have been developed only for the Asian market.

What I can see are the two Aqualumière Lip Glosses. The colors are Dessert, a bright pink metallic shade, and the limited-edition French Toffee - a gold copper I know I'll want.

It does appear that we will see the Stylo Yeux Waterproof Eyeliner in Purple Berry (limited-edition) and a limited-edition Illusion d'Ombre Eyeshadow in Eager, a gold beige with a pearl luster finish.

I am still collecting information about this collection from my local Chanel representatives. Bless them for the photos! As I get more information, I will add it to this feature.

I remember writing about this collection a year ago when it was Asia exclusive. The eyeshadow quad looks wonderful. :)

Charleston Girl said...

Hi Tavia,

Nice to hear from you. Yes, I remember you wrote about it too. It was an Asia exclusive, and we were so jealous. I don't think we are getting the whole collection, but I should know by the end of today.

Did you ever see any of it in person? If not, perhaps I can shop for you when it hits our counters?

evo said...

Do you know if Canada will receive this too?

Charleston Girl said...

I don't, Evo, but I can add that to my questions. Do you have Saks there? Will Saks ship to you?

Nemo said...

Oh, thank you for checking on this. I want it all, if only for the names alone. Fun? Who could NOT want something named Fun??!! We all need something like this to look forward to and to dream about on our pillows at night, don't we?

Anahita said...

Thanks so much for this. I just called my Saks and did a pre order. My counter didn't even get any brochures but at least they knew what I was talking about. I can't wait to see it.

Eileen said...

This is interesting news. If Saks is getting this year's Le Blanc collection in May; what will Nordstrom do for their anniversary sale in July? I'll have to do a bit of sleuthing and see what's on the horizon :-) I've always adored the Le Blanc collections and usually purchase most of the items. What I like about them is that they're small, well edited, and revolve around a simple color scheme. They're little jewels. And, with Saks getting the collection in early May, this set of early spring colors will actually be available to us in spring! What a concept! LOL

I'm also looking forward to the release of Chanel's fall Superstition collection which is featuring a selection of---deep breaths---six cream blushes! (Thanks for the heads up on that bit of news, Tavia.) Chanel has some steep competition, but there's always room for another gorgeous and well formulated cream blush---at least in my stash there is! :-)

evo said...

Saks does ship to Canada at a price.

The only "high end" department store here is Holt Renfrew.

Nemo said...

Now I wonder if there is a second exclusive CHANEL on the horizon. My friend insists there is an exclusive CHANEL ROUND eye quad pan coming to Saks. Also, it looks like the Les Delices is going to be at Nordstrom's, too.

Dollie Solanki said...

The colours look very pretty. Not sure if they will even show up on my tan skin but I'll check them out when I go to Hong Kong in may.

Anna said...

I got the white highlighter last week. I have yet to test it, tho, but it looks so pretty!

Anonymous said...

Will the collection be available at Nieman Marcus?
Thanks,CG! Have a good day:)

Ooooo, that shiny white blush could be an interesting highlighter, no?? And a purple-berry liner sounds beautiful. Can't wait to see what the U.S. collections holds! Thanks CG for your detective work. Denise at aeiokid at comcast dot net.

Charleston Girl said...

Hi Nemo,

I'd rather dream about makeup than some of the crazy things that my brain imagines. :)

Charleston Girl said...

Hi Anahita,

I plan to pre-order too. I will order from Giorgia and Loyd and Saks Chevy.

Charleston Girl said...

Hi Eileen,

I am anxiously awaiting photos from Chanel for fall. They always think I'm jumping in front of the line. :)

I have absolutely no idea what Nordies will do. You can bet it will be something exciting. :)

Charleston Girl said...

Nemo, I need to hire a few of you as sleuths. I just can't read every blog out there to keep up!

Charleston Girl said...

Hi Dollie,

I hope that's a faux tan!

Charleston Girl said...

Where did you get it, Anna?

Charleston Girl said...

Hi adlibALH. I don't know - yet. Best thing to do would be to call your fave NM counter.

Charleston Girl said...

Hi Denise,

Thanks! I've still got more sleuthing to do. :)

Nemo said...

I can't take credit for all of it, haha. My dentist's wife is a makeup lover too, specifically CHANEL. She loves the new CHANEL boutique at the Saks in Troy, Michigan. That's where she learned about the round eye quad coming exclusively to Saks. A thought occurred to me: did they mean round container or simply round pans of color, which would indicate the European style. She also said they are very excited at Saks CHANEL about the upcoming fall collection, lots of teal. I don't care--I'll buy anything CHANEL.

Melanie said...

EVO: Holt Renfrew would be the place that we'd get it, if we do at all. Give them a call.

I second what Nemo said: I buy anything and everything with those interlocking Cs.

I need teal for fall ... This has made me ready to skip summer (since spring does not seem to be coming this year).

Melanie said...

P.S. Saks on-line does ship to Canada, but will not, from what I have seen, send Chanel. Maybe if a store were called directly, an exception could be made?

Soni said...

Eileen, I LOVE YOU!!!! I had no idea about Chanel's cream blushes. I was JUST telling my Chanel SA that I wish they would do a cream/gel blush...and VOILA!
Can. Not. Wait!

CharlestonGirl, THANK you for finding out about this collection! I just did a pre-order for the pieces I want. Definitely the aqualumiere glosses & the eyeliner. Must see the other pieces first. The "fun" blush is white? Maybe that will help tone down my rosacea....HA!
Can't wait for everything to get here!!!!

Charleston Girl said...

Soni said...

Thank you CharlestonGirl!
I kept trying to hit the "like" button on your comment. =D

trhoades said...

Saks is getting Delicatesse, Convoitise, Purple Berry Stylo Yeux, Gourmandise Rouge Coco Shine, Friandise and French Toffee Aqualumiere Glosses. Delice is Chanel.com exclusive.

Charleston Girl said...

That's funny, Soni. The FB culture!

Charleston Girl said...

Thanks, Throades!

Eileen said...

Hi Nemo,

The quad has round pans consistant with the Asian/European versions. They have a pretty embossed flower pattern on them--camellias, I think. It's a pretty palette. One of my friends bought it when she was in Japan. The way you've described your coloring, I can't help but think how lovely the colors will look on you. You can see some great swatches of it on Kaisobessions.com. Just type Chanel Delicatesse in "Search" and it will take you to the post.

Mary Ann said...

Very pretty, Want the eyeshadow and eyeliner. Makeup and chocolate and I'm happy!

wwendalynne said...

Oooohhh nooooo more temptation. I love Chanel.

to EVO who posted above. Your best bet for Chanel would be to contact Holt Renfrew and ask if they will be receiving this collection. Other than that, perhaps The Bay. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

So these will be also available at Nordstrom and Chanel.com?
Thanks for the intel :)
Tanja

Dollie Solanki said...

Nope, I don't need fake tan. Nature has given me medium tan skin tone.

Eileen said...

Hi Nemo,

Me again :-P You mentioned lots of teal. Were you perhaps thinking of Chanel's quad Fascination? It's the European round pans and was released in Canada in March. It's gorgeous! I'd love to see it released here. I wonder if that was the other round pan quad your contact was talking about. Anyway, you can google it. There are lots of pictures and swatches of it on-line.

Tavia said...

I never got the chance to see it in person. Unfortunately I live in a country were most brands I write about are not even available, not to mention the collections came on the counters months later than US or Japan, and sometimes they don't come at all. The only way possible to see most collections in person is when I travel abroad. I would love to see the products on your blog when you'll buy them. I'm also living through your blog sometimes and enjoying the reviews & swatches. :)

Anna said...

I ordered it through a friend from Taiwan, it was a CP a friend of hers had offered :>
