Chanel Coco Codes Spring 2017 Makeup Collection - Photos, Swatches

It seems a bit strange to talk about spring makeup collections now, but the makeup world always seems to be a step or two ahead with the seasons.  Still, I was a bit surprised to find Chanel's spring 2017 makeup collection - Coco Codes - at the Chanel counter at Nordstrom.  The collection, designed by Chanel Creative Makeup and Colour Designer Lucia Pica features conventional colors like gold, black, red, and white - more common in winter and holiday makeup collections - and creates a new trend for spring with glossy reds, soft gold, and tints of darker tones.  Scroll on for photos and swatches.

There are two blushes in this collection - Joues Contraste blush Elegance and Harmonie de Blush palette Coco Code.  Elegance is a warm peach-brown shade with some fine shimmer mixed in.  Coco Codes blush palette has 4 colors in it that can work as highlighter, bronzer, and blush.  The blush color is a coral-red shade that seems perfect for spring, and the 2 highlighter shades (gold and pearl pink) would work great on most skin tones.  The bronzer shade - a warm brown - almost disappears against my medium-dark skin tone, but it does help enhance the blush color as well as warm up the skin tone.  These colors can be used on their own or swirled/layered together.

There are two eyeshadow quads in this collection - Codes Subtils and Codes Élégants.  Both quads have shimmery colors, but the eyeshadows are creamy smooth and pigmented.  The formula feels quite soft and seems easy to blend.  These shadows can be used as sheer washes of color for softer looks or built up and combined for deeper, more intense metallic or smokey eye looks.

Chanel's spring makeup collection with its golds and reds does seem quite appropriate for the holidays, so perhaps it's good Chanel launched it this early.  I do think the colors would work well for spring too, though, especially the Coco Code blush palette (which is my favorite in this collection) as well as the lip colors.  I loved the colors in the collection, especially since nothing is cool toned and despite all the gold and shimmer in there, the overall effect is subtle and elegant.
