One Crazy Summer with Chanel's Lumieres Facettes Plein Soleil Palette
The summer collection from Chanel was inspired by Monte Carlo to the seaside of Deauville. These were Coco Chanel's favorite resort destinations. The colors range from corals to pink sand. This is a collection that makes seasonal sense. The chosen colors are appropriate and perfect for warm weather.
Summer is all about shimmery sand, coral sunsets and punchy reds.
Plein Soleil(527) is a limited edition eye shadow palette from Chanel. The shades are warm with a slight pink cast. This is more apparent when the shadows are applied wet.
In fact this palette is magnificent with a wet application. The slightly chalky colors deepen and the sparkle comes out. The darkest shade is a cocoa color with a metallic rose cast. At first glance, it looks like it could be in the same color family as MAC's Gold Stroke. The Chanel shade is warmer, less shimmery and metallic. The other shades in the palette are in the metal family of golds.
The palette retails for $56 and is currently at your local Chanel counter.
