Who loves L.A.? The Chanel Spring 2016 LA Sunrise collection is a nice hint, doncha think? The star of the range is the gorgeous, #gimmethat Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon face palette that includes shades of bronzer, blush and highlight. Let's look at all the super-pretty colourful photos.
chanel spring 2016: LA Sunrise
The Chanel Spring 2016 LA Sunrise Sunkiss Ribbon face palette ($57 CAN) really looks like an LA sunrise (or sunset), doesn't it? Pollution does beautiful things to a sky at the right time of day. Silver lining, right? This limited-edition palette is so gorgeous – those shades are so irresistable for me that I might. actually. use. it. You'll know because the earth will rock on its axis. Yep, whether or not I use an archive-worthy makeup compact has that much impact on world order.
The Chanel Spring 2016 Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow quad in Beverly Hills ($68 CAN) is so eye-catching – I love this striking limited-edition combination of shades in the pan. Would I wear it? Unlikely. Maybe if I were 15 to 20 years younger. The pink, shimmering ivory and deep plum are easy for a great range of ages, actually. That vibrant teal blue is a stunner for lining.
These Chanel Spring 2016 Illusion d'Ombre shadows in Moonlight Pink, Ocean Light and Griffith Green ($41 CAN each) are interesting Spring choices. I see the vivid blue Ocean Light and that gorgeous Griffith Green (looks like a rich green with sunlight sparkling across the top) more as summer options. Am now very curious about the Chanel summer colour palette. Anyway, Moonlight Pink is the only limited edition in this trio.
Again, these Chanel Spring 2016 Stylo Yeux Waterproof pencils in Fervent Blue, Ardent Purple and Pacific Green ($35 CAN each) are more vivid than I'd expect for Spring. Gorgous with all eye shades, though. These I'd wear quite happily. None of these is limited edition, by the way.
Although I find coloured mascara a bit of a challenge, I love Chanel Mascara Le Volume so much that I'd wear this one. Plus, this limited-edition Chanel LA Sunrise Mascara Le Volume in Ardent Purple ($38 CAN) should look great with green and hazel eyes. And blue eyes. And probably brown. Purple is like that. It's friendly with all eye shades.
Oh! Here's this post full of great advice on ways to wear coloured mascara!
Of course I have #grabbyhands for the Chanel Spring 2016 LA Sunrise Rouge Coco Shine in Shipshape, Mighty and Energy ($41 CAN each). These fab-looking shades would look amazing on anyone -- that red is a lucious raspberry red, I think. And none of these is limited edition. A Chanel Rouge Double Intensité in Tender Beige ($41 CAN) is also part of the LA Sunrise collection. I've just gotta hunt down a nice image.
Just try to ignore the Chanel Spring 2016 LA Sunrise Le Vernis Nail Gloss in 684 Sunrise Trip ($31 CAN). Just try. That stunning deep purple is wow. Looks satisfyingly dark, self-assured and all-grown-up in the ad visual, doesn't it? With a side of fun because it's purple. I'ma need a chevron mani with this colour.
Now let's look at the product shots in a slideshow without the lovely backgrounds:

Okay, that's the rundown. LA Sunrise is set to hit counters in January 2016; I bet nordstrom.com will get it earlier. They do that a lot.
Whatchu think, lovelies? Too early for Spring? Or do these shades resonate a bit better than typical Springtime pastels would right now?
