Back in January we got a sneak peak of Chanel’s Bleu Illusion makeup collection that debuted on the Chanel Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 runway. Peter Philips created a collection awash in blues and the new limited edition products are: Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Apparition (gray-ish blue), Illusion D’Ombre Shadow in Destination (silvery satin blue), Le Crayon Yeux Eyeliner in Blue Aerien (intense luminous blue), and Le Vernis Nail Polish in Sky Line. Describing Chanel Le Vernis Sky Line, Peter Philips stated: “It’s a beautiful, easy to apply, pearly- on the edge of metallic- shade that matched perfectly with the range of blues that Karl used for this haute couture collection.”
From the images the Bleu Illusion collection is very pretty but there’s a part of me that’s having horrible flashbacks of the 1980s and blue eyeshadow. I think in moderation this look can be really pretty and complements different eye colors. The Exclusive Collection BLEU ILLUSION will be available at specific points of sales in July 2012.
