One of the most expected summer 2016 makeup collections is already out! The Chanel Eyes Speak Volumes summer 2016 makeup line is ready for our reviews, tests and experiments of all kinds, and it’s already available for purchase online on Nordstrom.com and Chanel.com. Kristen Stewart, who is a brand ambassador for Chanel, is the face of the collection, looking… well… Kristen Stewart-like in the photos by Mario Testino. The ad campaign features 4 main looks you can achieve with this collection: Tomboy, Mischievous, Playful or Star Look. All looks perfectly describe the celebrity that stars in the campaign, so maybe after all Chanel makes a wise selection when it comes to its brand ambassadors.
UK fans can already purchase the collection from all Chanel counters, whole US customers can get theirs online. As for the rest of the world, the collection will be available for sale internationally starting with May 2016.
Chanel Le Volume de Chanel Mascara ($32.00)
Chanel’s Le Volume mascara is the first product in this collection to accentuate your beautiful eyes. It will make your eyelashes look bushy and full, completing whatever eye makeup color you choose.
Chanel Dimensions de Chanel Mascara ($32.00)
For all those who are looking for length rather than volume, there exists this Chanel mascara as a secret beauty weapon.
• 10 Noir
• 20 Brun
• 30 Cobalt
Chanel Inimitable Mascara ($32.00)
The collection features one more mascara, if you’re not ready to opt for a single function. Length or volume; it’s always so hard to make a decision. Just go with the Inimitable Mascara.
Chanel Inimitable Intense Mascara ($32.00)
Want something stronger, bolder, and more unique? Get the fourth and the last option, the Inimitable Intense Mascara. Unlucky for you, all four products come with the same price, so you are facing a very tough choice here.
Chanel Les 4 Ombres Eyeshadow Palette ($61.00)
These palettes are all about four small round-shaped nests of tasteful color and texture and three different sets, each containing four different shades. Whether you’re looking for a beachy style, nude and smokey or simply party glam, one of these palettes can make your day!
• No.266 Tisse Essentiel
• No.272 Tisse Dimensions
• No.264 Tisse Particulier (Limited Edition)
Chanel Illusion D’Ombre Velvet ($36.00)
Here’s a gel-cream eyeshadow that comes in our most favorite texture of the year – matte. It claims to have a smooth velvety touch that will give more depth and a softer gaze to your eyes.
• No.98 Melody
Chanel La Palette Sourcils de Chanel ($50.00)
When we’re talking about eyes, reserve a couple of front seats for your eyebrows as well. Chanel’s La Palette Sourcils is an eyebrow shadow kit, coming in two different sets – dark and light. Each set comes with two different shades, again – dark and light. The set is completed with a small eyebrow brush, a tapered brush and tweezers.
• No.40 Naturel
• No.50 Brun
Chanel Stylo Eyeshadow ($34.00)
Very often, we find our most favorite eyeshadows in the smallest sizes, even if they are in a set. So when we are done enjoying every single particle of that color, it’s very hard to find the same color of eyeshadow. So, if you’re all for sporting a single eyeshadow instead of an entire palette, the Stylo Eyeshadow collection is the place to start. Even in this case, you might want to invest in a pair, just in case. These products are limited-edition and might go out of the market soon.
• No.197 Vert Grise
• No.187 Brun Chatain
• No.157 Beige Dore
• No.207 Bleu Nuit
• No.177 Rose Petale
Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil ($29.00)
Not a professional with shadows? Get the good old eyebrow pencil that can do the job just as well. If you like getting your brows in perfect shape… and we do mean really perfect, think twice, maybe you do need the eyebrow shadow kit.
• No.10 Blond Clair
• No.30 Brun Naturel
• No.40 Brun Cendre
• No.60 Noir Cendre
Chanel Nourishing Mascara Base ($32.00)
It comes with the same price as the four mascaras we talked about earlier, which means it’s just as important. Take care of your eyelashes by giving them some Chanel-level care.
Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof ($33.00)
• No.20 Espresso
• No.10 Ebene
Chanel Large Tapered Blending Brush No.19 ($38.00)
