Printemps Precieux de Chanel Collection and Other Spring Chanel Makeup Buys

Printemps Precieux de Chanel Collection


Comes in A Soft Peach Beige Color

I was a little late to the Party for this powder. Partly due to owning so many illuminating powders, creams, bases, serums, lotions, potions, galore!! Also due to the fact that it sold out for a while until I found it online at Nordstrom. So when I saw it available online, I jumped on it and bought it after I had previously tried it on in the shops. I wanted to see if it was really worth the hype before spending the energy and money tracking it down. I found out that it was so worth it and not only was I sold on the powder, but also the Chanel Powder Brush #1 that the sales lady had used to softly brush across my face.  So I added the brush to my online order. It felt so soft and heavenly, I couldn't resist. Of all the makeup brushes that I own, I have never owned a Chanel brush and I was impressed! It literally feels like it was customized for my face as it wraps around my cheek bones....

I initially went home from the shop sad (before I found it online) because the powder was sold out, but I did not go home empty handed. I purchased three Chanel Products that the lovely sales lady showed me. For I wouldn't be SikGlam, if I had went home empty handed..;)

Since the powder was sold out at the shop I was at, I bought another illuminating powder that they had. I bought their POUDRE DOUCE SOFT PRESSED POWDER in 20 Peche Tendre. It is a Luminous Compact powder for the face and the décolleté.

I Wish it Would have came with a Powder Puff Like
in the Karl Lagerfeld "Public Garden" Movie. 

I was previously using and loving my bareMinerals Ready Touch Up Veil in Tinted as a powder compact to keep in my handbag. I used it to set my makeup and in my T-zone, if I should find myself shiny. But never in areas that I want to show luminosity. I have now switched to the Chanel Soft Pressed Powder for my handbag powder compact. So far I love them equally.

This powder is definitely not as illuminating as the POUDRE SIGNÉE DE CHANEL ILLUMINATING POWDER, but that is good for the way that I am using it. I use it for for touch ups and to set my makeup. I would not want too much illumination in my T-zone. That is not a good look!

I also got a LES 4 OMBRES QUADRA EYESHADOW. It is a beautiful compact with four contrasting and complementing colors. I got mine in 36 Intuition.

This Quad offers shades from Matte to Frost to Satin!
Not too Shimmery! Just Perfect!

This quad is amazing! I had not bought a Chanel eyeshadow of any kind is a very long time and I am so happy with it. I find myself using this quite a bit. The colors are so pigmented and long lasting. There are so many different ways to use it. I find myself just using a single color across my lid if I am in a hurry.  If I have the time, I will do a smoky version with all four colors. Or my favorite way, highlight under my brow and by the inner corner of my eye with the top left color, than take the brown color across my entire bottom lid, and than pop the bottom left color right dead center of my bottom lid. It really brings out your eye color!


It also has a Built in Sharpener that pops out!

Color on the Skin!
You can really see the Rose Gold Tone!

This beautiful color Rose was featured in the Printemps Precieux de Chanel Collection. This color is great for those No Makeup/Makeup Days! To line your upper or lower lash lines, or both. It's also perfect for when you are doing a full makeup look. It adds a really beautiful pop of color. This eye color is also nice to use on your inner lower lash line to cover up the redness and to highlight.

Final Thoughts:

I am so glad that Chanel Came out with the Printemps Precieux de Chanel Collection and drew back my attention! I had probably not bought a Chanel product in years. No real reason, just the fact that there are so many new and amazing brands popping up everywhere and sometimes you forget about the Iconic Brands for a minute. The ones that you know will always be good and that you can always rely on. I love everything that I bought and have been using most of it everyday!  I cannot say that for A LOT of the makeup that I buy! I am even eying some more Chanel makeup! So stay tuned!
