    Chanel Spring 2011

    Thanks to ALU we have our first (or at least my first!) look at something from Chanel's 2011 Spring line up. Check it out!

    Chanel Spring 2011 Preview - Black Pearl | All Lacquered Up

    Delicious!!!! I have to have that polish, like...yesterday. What do you guys think?

    Hopefully news on other products will be showing up soon. I can't wait!

    Re: Chanel Spring 2011

    I see a white polish behind it, perhaps White Pearl? And a quad (though the couple of colors I see really aren't thrilling me), a Rouge Coco (judging by the packaging) and maybe that is a JC compact off to the left.

    I was thinking white pearl as well. Where's that pale baby blue polish we saw before

    It's entirely possible there will be a third polish...there were three with this past year's spring collection. Also, that quad looks baked. Kinda disappointed.

    I'm really hoping that baby blue polish shows up somewhere. I've been thinking about it since that photo and I've already decided what I want to wear it with.

    There's still hope...they talk about French Vogue, a UK manicurist, etc. & they would have the baked version even if we weren't getting it.

    The baby blue polish is supposed to be in the Cruise line.

    That blue polish looks darker than the one we saw originally,,,but could also just be lighting. I liked the color in the first pic better -softer blue.

    But I just LOVE the long striped dress in that link - that hem is gorgeous!!!

    We can mix "white pearl" and the blue on the model with the striped dress to make the powder blue colour!

    Re: Chanel Spring 2011

    I was wondering when info on the Spring Collection would come out. I hope I have some time for my wallet to recover from Holiday before I start needing things from the Spring Collection. Please tell me there aren't any other collections coming out for the next while because this Holiday collection is really killing me. I seem to NEED everything. I'm going to be placing my second order today :O

    Love Black Pearl and the quad! White Pearl? Don't know if I need it. I have Blanc Petal which is a good white polish and wearable, but the formula isn't as good as the Les Khakis and Paradoxal.

    Oooh I found more info!

    Chanel Spring 2011 Makeup Collection. Sneak Peak | MakeUp4All, Ladies Beauty

    Too funny! Looks like the MA is using the spinge tip applicator LOL. They must be applying that quad wet. I would really love tips from Chanel on how to best do this. More pinks and greens though...doesn't it seem like that is is a lot of quads? I can't wait to get more info on what is being released with this colllection! I wonder when it will come out. I hope there is nothing new being released for a while because I need a break from SPENDING!

    Oh noes! The green is gorgeus but why on earth are they pulling out so many pinks and whit-ish shades? I know it's spring but I want darker ...

    I know! I already have a tonne of pink and ivory or whiteish shades in all my other quads. I really don't need more. I need more dark outer v and midtone crease shades. The green looks lovely but the Winter Night green is already so nice and I have Murano on the way which looks amazing too so another one? I dunno Maybe I'll ACTUALLY have to pass on it LOL don't know if I can though...I definately have a problem now

    I bet that we will read this post in the near future and think "Really? Was I thinking that by any chance, Chanel was going to let me pass on one of its collections?" mrslid ... we are Chanel's slaves, never forget that!

    I am really liking the looks of that quad! I was planning on skipping the holiday quad anyway, but seeing this just makes my decision even easier! That polish is really pretty too (Black Pearl), but I can easily skip it because I know I won't use it.

    I love that green grey color in the quad -- gorg! Although it kinda reminds me of MAC Birds and Berries I have from the Liberty of London collection. Hmmm, interested in seeing more.
    Elegant -- let us know if you find out what the lipstick color is. Love soft pinks!

    More info for you, ladies!!

    "Hence the luminous, emerald-tinged onyx shade from the brand’s Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eye Shadow in Regard Perle that he dragged up to the brow bone and underneath the lower lash line.

    Chanel’s Le Crayon Kohl eyeliner pencil in black and a few lashings of its mascara added drama to the look, which was softened by clean skin highlighted with touches of Chanel’s Poudre Lumiere Perlée, a finishing powder with a touch of shimmer. A “dewy” lip came courtesy of Rouge Coco Shine in Boy, a rosy pink.

    Manicures with Chanel’s shimmering asphalt polish, Black Pearl—the new-for-spring cult color that you likely already want to own—added to the intrigue, which, for the record, managed to hold our attention as all 80-plus models worked the room."

    Smokin? Chanel

    "And Joues Contraste blush in Espiègle offered a fresh flush to models’ cheeks.

    And of course, a Chanel show is not complete without a hot new riot-causing nail shade. This season there were two. Le Vernis Black Pearl (our preferred pick), a dark metallic charcoal with a hint of green worn on hands; and Le Vernis Pearl Drop, a creamy opaque white polish used to pretty-up toes. Both shades are part of the Les Perles de Chanel Spring 2011 make-up collection..."



    To add it all up so far, the spring collection is called Les Perles de Chanel and includes:
    - Quad in Regard Perle
    - J/C in Espiegle
    - RC Shine in Boy
    - Le Vernis in Black Pearl
    - Le Vernis in Pearl Drop
    - Poudre Lumiere Perlee

    I loved the colour of birds & berries too but found the pigmentation not as strong as I would have liked and it went on pretty uneven so I swapped. Hmmm maybe I do need this colour
