I could apologise for coming in late with the limited edition Chanel Energies et Puretes le Blanc makeup 2017 collection. I could. But I won’t. I do wish brands would allow us consumers to catch our breath for a bit before throwing another large collection at us (and our wallets!)
I was sent some select pieces from the collection (else I’d never have known of its existence!) so I’ll do a quick post to show you what they are, and some quick thoughts on them, and if you’re truly interested, what I think is worth picking up (and what isn’t).
The Chanel Energies et Puretes collection is actually part of the le Blanc collection (whitening) and usually, this invokes brightness and light. But this is Lucia Pica, who has turned Chanel makeup on its head (in my view, and for the better!) so the collection isn’t what I’m used to seeing for a blanc collection, as it has all these beautiful bright shades interspersed with depth. I also found out that this collection has only just launched in the USA and parts of Europe (Asia usually gets the Whitening stuff first and exclusively), so if you’re interested, here are the items and my thoughts on them.
