As you can see above, there is plenty to keep you occupied for now. The dazzling blush appears to be the centerpiece of the collection this month. There are three sheer lipsticks that drew my eyes immediately. I love, love, love Chanel's sheers!
I swatched the blush and three Rouge Coco Shine lip colors. The light outside was not ideal. The sun was struggling to emerge from behind the clouds. So my photos are not sharp (and really don't please me). I'm sorry, but since it's Christmas shopping season, I can't go back today. I might get crushed.
The sheer lip colors are shown above. Mighty, #116, is shown at the top of my arm. It's a pastel pink that leans blue-pink. The pretty coral Shipshape, #114, is shown in the middle, with the beautiful rose Energy, #118, shown at the bottom. I love them all, but have a preference for Shipshape and Energy because they are more pigmented or more colorful.
The blush, Sunkiss Ribbon, has a snazzy pattern (see above). I blended all of the colors together for my swatch, and a pretty peach resulted. The nice thing about the pattern is that you can easily choose to use the different shades alone or in combination for different color effects.
There is more in this collection for spring, and I will feature the rest of the items - most likely in January. All in all, I think it's a beautiful collection that will have something in it for each of us to think spring during the winter.
I apologize for my photos. They show what clouds will do, no matter how bright it is outside. I used them only to give you this quick look at the blossoming of a gorgeous spring collection.
