    Chanel Spring 2013 makeup collection

    I saw that pics for the spring collections have started to emerge online. Here is one from the Russian blogger - looks like we'll get a lot of new Rouge Allures this coming spring!

    Do you have better picture and/or description of this new spring collection?

    Ooooohhhh!!!! I was just this morning thinking about the lack of purples in high end brands. How nice to see that we'll be getting a couple (including one that looks quite vibrant). Also, I don't know who can change the thread names, but I think this should be Spring 2013, no?

    Oh, certainly, it's 2013-) I was too excited, I guess, when I typed!!! Just changed it.

    OMG, I just saw the pic on another site seconds ago and immediately came here to post it, LOL. I NEEEED that compact. I hope it's the regular spring collection, so it will be available here.
    The nail polish colors are kinda reminiscent of the fall collection.
    Of course seeing that highlight powder makes me reconsider getting the YSL one now.

    The compact powder is gorgeous. Probably another $80--$90.

    I hope it's a bit less.

    BTW this is where the pic is originally from: Twitter / Neueste Bilder von @AlexSteinherr
    (there's also one of YSL spring: Twitter / Neueste Bilder von @AlexSteinherr)

    ETA: seems like the Chanel pic was removed.

    I want the two RA's on the left and the last one on the far right. I want the compact, but the price will probably knock my glasses off.

    Those are the same lipsticks I'm looking at, and maybe the lipstick next to the one on the far right. If it's milky, forget it. But if it's something along the lines of Up The Amp, I'm in.

    Now that I've eased my way into face powders, I'm getting that compact. I think I'd rather get that compact instead of replacing the Guerlain Meteorites. I tried the Meteorites and I can't tell if it really does anything for me or if I'm just willing it to because it's so pretty. I also can't tell if it brightened my face or just made me look lighter because of the white powder. I'm really hoping the Chanel powder will be more golden than actual white.

    I really don't think meteorites are meant for us. It just looks like some fairy dust on dark skin (and not in a good way). I like the look of the Chanel compact, but if the price is over $80, I'm completely out. If it's under, I'll need to swatch it first and even then I might pass. I have a lot of highlighters and I don't reach for them on a regular basis even though some of them are really nice.

    I so agree. I saw that when I started doing research on Meteorites before I decided to purchase. The descriptions for their three permanent colors show that they don't really cater to deeper complexions. I can't find where I read it, but the 03 Teint Dore shade that is said for darker skin tones I think is actually more for olive/golden skin. If that's considered their deepest shade, I knew to be prepared for it not to work. But the Meteorites are so pretty to look at and I was drawn to the Dragon one since I'm a Dragon sign. I was just hoping that it would work. However, I'm not at all surprised that it didn't. I'm really hoping the Chanel compact will be different.

    I think that last year, Chanel and Guerlain had their Spring collections on counters IN DECEMBER. That's nuts if you ask me, but they didn't, so it might happen again.

    Really?? Wow I need to stay on top of things better.

    I'm having a hard time not looking at pics of that new Guerlain "Wulong" Meteorites compact even though it is crazy expensive. I really don't understand why the price is so high for it and the "Voyage" compact. I haven't seen them in person but they must be quite special, or you would think. It's really the powder I want and I figure they'll do refills at $55 like "Voyage" I was told the "Wulong" is best for warmer skin tones and the "Voyage" best for cooler skin tones. I don't know if the refill would fit in any other compact. If any of you know if it does or doesn't let me know.

    So many beautiful goodies.

    Yes, I do recall the same - it was in December-) This is not surprising since the Christmas collections are long sold out by then and companies need sales, sales, sales!!!
