January is not even over, but I cannot hold out any longer. It is time to start talking spring. I really wanted to put it off, but after seeing the beautiful Spring 2013 CHANEL Collection, I had to share.

Named for the precious beauty of Spring, the new colour collection PRINTEMPS PRÉCIEUX DE CHANEL
celebrates Gabrielle Chanel’s codes of simplicity and sophistication. Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup
Peter Philips channels the season’s splendor with a collection of contrasts. Elegant neutrals complement soft-to-sultry pinks on face and lips, while nails are adorned with vivid polish.

I love the balance of both the pastel and the vivids in the collection.

The Illuminating Powder is divine. Look really good into the powder. Yes - those are some signature CHANEL items you are seeing embossed into the powder itself. Does it get any more beautiful?

Chanel Illuminating Powder Spring 2013

Embossed with iconic emblems of CHANEL, the powder creates a naturally luminous effect in two ways. The blend of soft peach and warm beige shades applies with a new sponge applicator for a sheer, radiant glow on cheekbones or with a powder brush for natural, allover radiance.

The Eye Shadow Quad is already a favorite and I will be creating captivating eye looks with it this spring and beyond. Look at the beautiful shades of mauve beige and browns.

Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow Raffinement

An ultra-feminine palette of refined beiges and velvety browns offers subtle-to-seductive eye looks.

I love a CHANEL Lip Colour and these ROUGE ALLURE shades run the spectrum and are pretty perfect in every way. They feel so nice and cushiony on my lips. I love the true color and lasting power these have, without ever compromising the way my lips feel.

I have to see this collection because it is more than beautiful. I really want the powder and the nail polishes. The lip gloss looks great too.

I can't wait for spring and more spring makeup too, though it doesn't stop me from wearing it now. This collection is pretty much appropriate any time of year, especially the eyeshadows.
