Chanel Pierres de Lumiere nail polish collection review late spring 2019: Chanel Joyau  nail polish / Chanel Perle de Corail nail polish / Chanel Jaspe nail polish / Chanel Eau de Nacre nail polish /

Every year, Chanel releases a second makeup collection in line with Spring Act II. This late spring release is usually a collection with a theme which takes inspiration from the spring season. For the late spring 2019 makeup release, Chanel has created Pierres de Lumiere which is inspired by a paradox of precious stones. The nail polish colors from the collection play with color and transparency of light, creating beautiful alternatives to the classic taupe and neon pink from Chanel’s standard spring 2019 nail polish collection.  

The Chanel Pierres de Lumiere collection offers us two translucent colors, Chanel Eau de Nacre and Chanel Perle de Corail. Eau de Nacre by Chanel is a soft and pretty, translucent white nail polish which is fabulous for the warm weather season. While Perle de Corail by Chanel, is a feminine and light twist on the color of 2019. The other colors, Joyau and Jaspe, are bright, and right in line with spring and summer’s bold color trends. There is definitely a color for a every taste in this late spring 2019 nail polish release!

Chanel Eau de Nacre nail polish

Chanel Eau de Nacre is a soft and translucent white nail polish. This is the perfect polish for the warm weather season when you are looking for a neutral that isn’t basic. Forms of white nail polish are always fresh and unexpected when it comes to spring or summer nail polish. Eau de Nacre by Chanel is a great alternative to spring 2019’s taupe hues, and it will be easy to wear daily; or great on toes! I love a good white polish on toes. It’s a not-so-basic neutral nail polish hue which doesn’t compete with varying shoe colors, patterns and styles. I plan on using this color for my toes this spring and summer seasons!

Chanel Jaspe nail polish

Orange you glad Chanel has created a bold orange hue for spring? haha, I am! Chanel Jaspe nail polish is a classic orange hue which is a fun color to wear in late spring, and throughout the summer season. Since shades of orange are a hot color trend for the spring/summer seasons, Jaspe by Chanel is a fabulous nail polish to wear right now in order to rock that color trend. Love!

Chanel Joyau nail polish

Chanel Joyau is a pretty alternative to Techno Bloom from the spring 2019 nail polish collection. Joyau is a slightly darker, shiny bright pink nail polish which is right on trend for the spring season. While Techno Bloom is neon and matte, Joyau is bright and shiny. There is a bold pink for every taste from Chanel for spring 2019, love that!

Chanel Perle de Corail nail polish

Well, Chanel Perle de Corail nail polish is my favorite hue from the Chanel Pierres de Lumiere makeup collection for late spring 2019. This is a soft take on the current coral color trend; and it’s translucent nature is both fresh and beautiful. This is an easy color to wear daily; and it is just breathtaking. I will definitely be wearing Perle de Corail by Chanel often this late spring 2019 season!

I tested all four nail polish colors from the Chanel Pierres de Lumiere makeup collection for late spring 2019 with one base coat, and two coats of colors. All four of them applied evenly without streaking. As with all Chanel nail polishes, they offer a chip-resistant formula which is long lasting. I love the color saturation from these four nail polish colors, they are pretty and can all be worn throughout the season.

I’m so excited about these new Superfood products from Elemis! As you know, I am a huge fan of Elemis skin care products. Their Marine cream is my holy grail, go-to cream for daytime skin care. So, when Elemis sent me their new skin care products from the Elemis Superfood collection, I was thrilled!

The new additions to the Superfood skin care collection include two masks, one exfoliator, and a fabulous mist which will be perfect for the upcoming warm weather season. I love using a mist after I have been out in the sun, and when my skin is unusually dry. This new Elemis Superfood Kefir-Tea Mist will be a life-saver for dry skin this spring and summer!

There are two new masks and an exfoliator in the Superfood collection. The Elemis Superfood Blackcurrant Jelly Exfoliator is a fabulous mask for leaving your skin feeling smooth and clean. It’s really gentle, and smells like a jelly sandwich. Yum!

The Elemis Superfood Berry Boost mask absorbs excess oil, which is perfect for my oily skin. It too smells like a jelly sandwich. I’m getting hungry! haha.

Lastly, the Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask brightens skin. This is the perfect mask for refreshing your skin when you are tired or dehydrated. It really freshens up your face!

What I love about the Elemis Superfood skin care collection is that it is made with sustainably-sourced, organic, natural ingredients. They use pre-biotics which fuel and feed your skin’s microbiome; helping to keep your skin healthy and fresh. The vegan-friendly ingredients are filled with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals your skin craves. It’s like food for your skin. Love that!

Givenchy Lunar New Year collection review

How fabulous and luxurious is this Lunar New Year makeup collection by Givenchy? I’m in love! The Givenchy Lunar New Year collection features Prisme Libre, which is a finishing powder in color Mousseline Pastel #1, and also Le Rouge lipstick in a warm, red hue, named Rouge Fetiche #325. The collection is limited edition, and the casing is beautiful!

These colors are perfect for evening looks and dressy occasions; such as celebrating Lunar New Year! The red lipstick is a classic, warm red with yellow undertones. The pastel powder adds dimension to your makeup look without adding actual pastel hues. Don’t worry, your face won’t end up blue and green. The colors blend together to add vibrancy to your skin; not a pastel rainbow. Love!

The finishing powder adds vibrancy to dull skin, which is great at night when the lights could be working against you. It also brightens up your skin when you are tired or completely tan-less; which I am right now! haha

It’s a lightweight powder which will help set your makeup and soak up shine. Love that!

So I tend to prefer blue undertones in my lipstick, but undertones aside, this is a beautiful, warm red lipstick. It’s a classic hue which can be worn for evening affairs, or anytime you want a classic red lip. Love it!

Givenchy’s limited edition Lunar New Year makeup collection is classic and chic; perfect for a night out on the town! You can find it online here.
