10th: Chanel

.

Chanel stayed with soft neutrals, pinks, and plums in the last few seasons, which is why the brand’s summer 2013 makeup collection, Collection l’Été Papillon de Chanel, is a very pleasant surprise. Blue, turquoise, and green are joined by pink and gold to create a long-awaited colorful collection. I particularly like the limited-edition Les 4 Ombres in 44 Métamorphose (below).

I like the idea behind the new Blend Creation Eye & Cheek palettes from Esprique’s spring 2013 makeup collection.

All the variations look quite easy to wear, and D-1 looks the most appealing to me.

Lavshuca’s fall 2012 makeup collection marks the start of the line’s image revamp. I have to say I don’t particularly like the new look, but the two new Lav Hearty Eyes palettes are eye-catching. I like the combination of pink and purple in PK-1 (above) as well as the golden brown in BG-1 (below).
