L'Ete Papillon de Chanel & Les Delices de Chanel @ SAKS 5th Avenue NYC! Xx

With what has to be one of
my favourite Chanel makeup collections to date we have
L'Ete PAPILLON de Chanel! Xx

I absolutely ADORE Butterflies and this Collection
has certainly captured their magic and attraction.
In the picture, the model's eyes are even multicoloured -
a marbled azure blue edged with a deep turquoise,
and a highlight of yellow ochre like a butterflies wing itself.

The Collection designed by Peter Philips, Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, 

includes colour blocks inspired by butterfly wings 
for eyelids, lashes, lips and nails in endless combinations.

This is a limited edition collection, that emulates butterfly wings

 in all of their colours flying through an azure summer sky.
L'Ete Papillon de Chanel then, gives us a chance to experiment freely,
and reminds me of the eighties with the really bright coloured
mascara which you can mix on the lashes for a real painterly effect.
It looks fabulous against the irridescent Stylo Eyeshadows which you
can also mix together any which way you choose.
I was in NYC last week where the collection was launched a couple of months ago 
so I walked into SAKS fifth Avenue for an amazing makeover,
where they also had the exclusive collection Les Delices de Chanel 

including the Ombres Fleuries Palette in Delicatesse 
with an irridescent green, pink pearl, 
deep red mahogany and white pearl shades,
a pale apricot lip shine and waterproof liner in pale sand.

On my eyes are jade shore, moon river, black stream Stylo Eyeshadows
blended with the Ombres Fleuries Palette in Delicatesse 
from Les Delices de Chanel Collection, 
Black fluid eyeliner, Black Volume de Chanel 
highlighted by  inimitable waterproof mascara in blue note and lime light.

I bought the Stylo Shadow in the Three Shades that were used in my look,
the waterproof eyeliner in true blue - an absolute must for this Summer,
the Palette in Delicatesse
and the Amazing Mascara's in Limelight and Blue Note

Palette in Delicatesse from Les Delices de Chanel Collection

with the most beautiful camellias.

The Whole L'Ete Papillon Collection has
 names evoking its extreme magnetism, 
exotic summer flowers and butterflies and includes:
The exclusive creation stylo shadow in

 6 must have irridescent shades,
so that you can literally feel free to experiment
and use your eyes as a canvas
and paint with the beautiful colours
From L to R: cool gold, pink lagoon, jade shore, 
blue lagoon, moon river and black stream

They feel really cool on application and creamy
 - and are very comfortable to wear and easy to blend.
