Summer here, kids: well, it will be if Chanel has anything to say about it. The Reflets D’Ete collection, launching on counter on June 6th, is a bright, juicy collection that you’ll be dying to get onto lips and nails. 

Ok, so there are some things for eyes, but this is primarily a polish and pout edit, and all the better for it. Wanna see what’s what? Click into the gallery.


Um, hello? Could this be your new contour colour? Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Cheeky, €34.50, is going on my list.

Three Illusion D'Ombre shadows form part of the collection in Mirage (top) and two limited shades in Utopia (pink) and New Moon (middle). They'll be €30.

Sunny, Happy, Sexy, Hello, Glaze

The Glossimers, €27 each, are done no favours by pixels. I've seen these in the flesh and they are luminously lovely. Almost fluorescent, there's very little payoff from the bright pink and orange but they leave a wash of glossy colour on the lips that's very Chanel summer-chic. Shades are Glaze, Hello, Sexy, Happy and Sunny, and Glaze and Hello are limited.

Two Inimitable (love this formula) Waterproof mascaras in Violet Touch and Orange Touch, €30, launch as well as a Stylo Yeux in Ambre Dore, €23.50.

Here's how all this can look on you. As you lounge on the Riviera, or similar. 

We've already had a good look at Eastern Light, €23, and 2014's re-discovered love for Tippex nails. This re-introduced shade is back as a limited release.

Le Vernis in Mirabella, €23, will go into the permanent collection.

Limited, Pink Tonic is €23.

A limited colour, Le Vernis in Sweet Lilac will be €23.

Le Vernis in Tutti Frutti, €23, another permanent colour.
