    Oooh, thanks for the link! Everything looks beautiful. I will need that gold nail polish and whatever she is wearing on the lips in the last pic. Oh, and the coral and the ''powder pink'' nail polish. And of course that glossy platinum glitter top coat that's mentioned, that sounds just gorgeous. Well, let's just say I want all the nail stuff.


    So, the gold n/p and the bronzer from the first pic and that last pic are from the summer collection, and the glossimers and those other n/p shades are different collection? I'm confused. Please let those nail polishes be available here

    Thanks, Rinstar! I want the glossy platinum top coat too! I think from the pics Chanel is releasing a set of new glossimers, since they have discontinued some of the older permanent shades. The bronzer looks interesting, kind of yellow in the pic. Wow, can't believe Jac is still modeling for the summer collection. Love her! She must be the longest model Chanel is using.

    hmmm, i sort of don't like the look of the bronzer and yes, it is yellow

    like the pale pink polish

    but I dont get why they are releasing 2 gold polishes in same season- this one and the Divali.

    From the pics I loooove Divali way more than this one

    From what I remember of the Summer 2012 pamphlet (unfortunately couldn't snap pics), the bronzer isn't so much yellow but golden. There's another bronzer that replaces the gold with rose shades, so one's like a bronzer/blush and the other is a bronzer/highlighter. I'm personally going for the golden one. :3

    The gold polish in this collection is more like a burnished gold/bronze color rather than the white-gold of Diwali. If pressed to pick one I'd pick Diwali, since it's more unique than the other color (Delight, I think?). There's supposed to also be a dark bronze glossimer too. In fact there's more glossimers/nps shown in the pics Rinstar posted than what I saw in the pamphlet at my Nordies...maybe there's been more updated information?

    Hmmm, I thought it interesting that in the last pic, the eye makeup is a little heavier than usual for Chanel. Love all the Coral & Red. Not thrilled about the bronzer

    I love the look in the last pic, but the Chanel glossimers never look that pigmented on me, too bad.

    You make the bronzer sound so yummy, but I hope I can stay away from it.

    I really can't wait for those glossimers. I don't know if they are in separate release or with the summer collection, but either way I'm buying them!

    I don't think they're being released separately--I don't remember glossimers being released with the May mini collection with the Jeans polishes, but I might be wrong.

    Speaking of polishes, I can read that the read is Tentation and the bright orange is Distraction...I might have to buy the orange for the LOL factor and because that's what Chanel is, a distraction...an expensive, beautiful distraction.

    ^^ Yeah I need the bright orange nail polish too! I missed out on Dior Aloha this summer! Kicking myself since then! Chanel has released a mini glossimer collection before, a couple of years ago I think, with Venus and others. I'm still puzzled about the Jeans polishes, didn't we just get it this fall. If there's a rose bronzer I'm going with it.

    bis - There are a few glossimers that are pigmented, such as Venus, Courtisane, Pink Teaser. So far Courtisane is the most pigmented, but yeah, the rest of the glossimers are usually sheer and shimmery.

    elegant - You're right, the eye makeup is dark and sexy. I love how it looks on the model with the coral lips.

    Thanks, I need to look up Courtisane. I have and like Pink Teaser, but it's barely a hint of pink on my lips.

    Of the polishes, I have to side with those who say they prefer the look of Diwali. It seems more original and, more importantly, it seems like it would go better with my skin tone. The glossimers look like they could be interesting, if they're not too sheer. I only have a couple (Myriade and Meteore), since I find a lot of them don't look like much of anything on me. I am curious about the top coat. Everything else is probably a skip for me.

    I've seen a few photos of the bronzers, and I remember these are called Soleil Tan de Chanel just like the striped ones in summer this year. The difference is, next year's stripes are thinner and they are shimmery--not sure if this is an overspray.

    The colors are:

    Sable Beige
    - combination of golden brown & beige stripes with a singular light yellow stripe

    Sable Rose
    - combination of golden brown & rose/plum stripes with one beige stripe and one light yellow stripe

    There is also a multipurpose iridescent powder for eyes and cheeks coming out (similar in purpose to Ombres Tissees perhaps?) It's in a square compact, has some star designs embossed on it as well as the word CHANEL at the bottom. It has gold/copper/bronze/white vertical stripes. It looks like it would be a shimmery warm golden color when mixed together. It looks like a Holiday product to me, but isn't it too early for Holiday 2012? It might be part of a special or exclusive collection, together with Diwali, I'm guessing.

    Mine. ALL MINE! *makes grabby hands*

    I don't remember seeing the star compact you spoke off in the Summer 2012 pamphlet, so maybe indeed that's for Holiday 2012 or Bombay Express. Either way, first day purchase for sure, as one of my obsessions is stars.

    Need those polishes! Badly! I am also interested in a few of the glossimers and hope they are nicely pigmented. I like colour, bright and bold, in the summer!

    FYI, looked at the Chanel leaflets again while at the mall today and the pictures from the initial post are from two different collections. The first and last pics (with the bronzers) are from Summer 2012, and the pics with the nps and glossimers are from a separate glossimer collection due to release in February.

    I'm actually over the idea of any designs designed to entice. I'm all about the colors & effects on the skin.

    I kinda like a lot the description for Sable Rose and the picture of the bronze np. It is amazing that we are already talking about summer when the spring collection is not even closed to be launched here!

    I wonder if the new bronzers will have a similar texture to the Horizons Spring blush? I hope so I am interested in Sable Rose as long as there isn't too much yellow in there. Thanks for the info!

    That sounds very good, but is it possible that Courtisane was/is LE? I cannot find it here.

    Bis -- Darn it -- I looked a few websites, and it looks like Courtisane is sold out. You're right, I think it was LE. Maybe a counter somewhere still has one in stock?

    One of the powders is supposed to look like Horizon, but more 'peachy' looking -

    Thanks for the info, Cheryl!

    Courtisane is from fall 2009 and it is permanent but it could be discontinued by now. I don't see it at my counters too.
