Les Perles de Chanel Spring 2011 Collection

Embracing Gabrielle Chanel’s philosophy on the power of pearls to illuminate the face, Peter Philips, Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, creates a DELICATE, FRESH and RADIANT Collection.

A luminous and intense iridescent gaze.
A fresh complexion glowing with natural beauty.
A warm, energized smile.


Tell me this collection is stunning and totally irresistible. I used to think Chanel’s makeup collections are boring and too mature for me. Perhaps age is catching up, I find their collections nowadays too beautiful to miss and they appeal to me like candies. Les Perles de Chanel Spring 2011 Collection was released last Friday and I know I was in trouble. A serious one. I splurged, again.

I brought home 8 absolutely gorgeous items and the first which got me excited is the Exclusive Creation of Ombres Perlees de Chanel Eyeshadow Palette (S$91). It consist of 5 luminous or intense shades inspired by pearls from all over the world. Colour tones vary from pearly white and porcelain pink to the depths of intense shades of grey – the “it”colour for Spring 2011. All 5 eyeshadows have a powder texture with a creamy feel. Ridiculously seductive, if you ask me.

Next in line are two Chanel Le Vernis in Black Pearl 513 and Pearl Drop 511, each retails at S$35. Black Pearl is a pearly grey shimmer nail colour with deep blue and green reflects, like a Tahitian black pearl. Totally breath-taking. And Pearl Drop is a white gold with pale gold shimmer.

My love for Chanel Rouge Coco continues with two new addition, the Jersey Rose 77 and Peregrina 78, each retails at S$44. Jersey Rose is a rose-pink with a gentle hint of peach, a very soothing and calming colour which will suit most of us. On the other hand, Peregrina is a peachy pink, a brighter and more cheerful alternative. For those who wants a little more attention on the lips, you got to check out the Chanel Rouge Allure in Flamboyante 84, also retails at S$44. Flamboyante is a beautiful muted pink-red. For those who are afraid of wearing bold, red lips, this colour may be the one for you.

I also got the Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in Regard Perle 20 (S$83). I love the dark forest green colour so much, I got to have it. And lastly, the Chanel Joues Contraste in Espiegle 65 (S$63) came home with me too. Espiegle is a soft peach colour but my photos turned out looking more pink than peach.
