There's something about each January's Chanel cosmetics launch that crystalizes our desire to leapfrog over winter straight into Spring. The Chanel Spring 2014 makeup collection is no different. Its creamy candy reds, plush browns, soft plums and sweet pinks that range from ballerina to apricot to electric is all about that rosy blush of Spring stepping confidently from its cozy cocoon. Bring. It.
UPDATE: now in stores, the Chanel Le Rouge Collection Variation Spring 2014 lip colour lineup.
