The latest Chanel makeup line is inspired by the French Riviera of the 1920s, one of Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite destinations. Intense shades, bold eyes and sun-kissed cheeks set the tone as warm and glamorous.

While the French brand’s Spring 2015 makeup collection placed the emphasis on the lips with explosive color, the new summer line focuses on the complexion, which takes on a seasonally appropriate golden glow, and on the eyes.

This season, the Chanel Makeup Creation Studio is introducing a new must-have item: The Stylo Eyeshadow. Perfectly portable, this eyeshadow pen allows for precise application, and the formula leaves behind a cool sensation on the skin. The product is launching in five Mediterranean-inspired shades ranging from shimmery turquoise to olive green and gold-flecked powder pink.

For those who never hit the beach without sunscreen, Chanel offers its Lumière d’Été illuminating powder compact as a way to achieve a sun-kissed glow. Pressed in the shape of Chanel’s signature camellia, the bronzing powder has a brightening effect, with gold shimmer particles and a satiny finish.

The Méditerranée collection also includes new shades of Rouge Coco Shine (light pink with gold shimmer, copper brown, bright pink with gold and coral red) and a new Lèvres Scintillantes gloss color (bright pink with blue and red shimmer). Finally, there are also four new Le Vernis nail polishes (shimmery brown, turquoise blue, poppy red and violet).

Stay tuned to find out when they’ll be available in Singapore.
