Sneak Peek Vol. 9: Chanel L'Ete Papillon de Chanel Makeup Collection Summer 2013 - Pygmalion, Idyllee, Envolee, Idylle - Photos and Swatches

Chanel L'Ete Papillon de Chanel Makeup Collection Summer 2013 (available here)

The dazzling colours of butterflies inspire a joyful look for face and fingertips with the enchanting Summer collection.  Lashes flutter in electric shades of mascara and eyelids are adorned with gleaming colours.  Nails and lips complete the effect with shades of sunlit brilliance.  Included in this collection - 2 Rouge Coco Shines - Pygmalion and Idylle - and 3 Levres Scintillantes Glossimer - Envolee, Zephyr (I do not have this one), and Eden.

Chanel's Summer 2013 Makeup Collection - L'Ete Papillon de Chanel - turned up online on the Chanel website last week and has started trickling into stores/counters, though I couldn't find it at the nearby Nordstrom.  With promo imagery featuring butterflies and bright colors, I was expecting some bright, rich colors in this collection.  The lip colors that I got, unfortunately, do not live up to that image!  With the exception of the Pygmalion, which is a lovely color, the rest are all sheer bordering on clear.  Reviews in a bit, but here's a sneak peek at the colors and some swatches.

I had to swatch a ton of product on to my hand to get this color to show through.
Unless you have really clear lips and/or are willing to pile the product on to the lips,
I doubt this would show up all that very different from a lip balm.
On my lips, it's almost invisible.

I haven't yet used any of these enough to post a proper review, but just going by the swatches, the only color worth spending money on, in my opinion, is PygmalionRouge Coco Shines are sheer lipsticks, and I don't expect a ton of color from any of them, but Idylle, at least on my lips, is just like a lip balm, maybe a tad lighter.  It is a fabulous lip balm, and my lips feel amazing while I am typing this post, but that's about it.  As for the glosses, Envolee might show up better on less pigmented lips or over another lipstick/liner, but Eden - a vibrant pink in the tube though my photos aren't very accurate - is a barely tinted lipgloss in real life.  Everyone has their own set of preferences when it comes to makeup, but for me, the lip colors in this collection would score anywhere from mehh to blah!  Pygmalion, though, is beautiful.

  4. The lippies were too pale for me, but the mascaras and eyeshadow pencils were divine! I'm surprised you didn't buy any. I bought the blue and aqua mascaras and the taupe and jade green eyeshadow pencils. I may have to cave and buy the quad too.

    1. Hi Ava...I did want to get the eye shadows, but they were on backorder for a while and then I figured I will just check them in store and decide - hopefully, they will be at the counter by this weekend. Mascaras...hmmm...I sort of like the boring blacks :P :P Not sure how colored would look on my eyes..

      The quad is on the way :D

    2. The pastel "crayons" will look lovely you. I may have to order that quad tomorrow…

    3. I didn't want to order the quad - I have 2 baked versions, and I definitely prefer the regular square pans over these, but then I caved in - as I always do - and ordered this one too...hopefully, it turns out nice. I saw a photo on another blog (link is there on Specktra) and it doesn't look like the photo on the Chanel website..much paler and frostier sorts...:(
