Various Spring 2011 Makeup Collections (Pic Heavy!)

I get excited by all the different makeup collections that are released each season by varying makeup brands so I thought it would be fun to do a bumper post on a few of them for Spring!  Would be nice to get everyone's thoughts and opinions on what has caught their eye.

MAC

The limited edition collection by MAC Cosmetics titled Jeanius will be available to buy on March 3rd in the US and will be shortly after for the UK (date to be confirmed). This collection is based around a denim theme with varying shades of blue, grey and also some pinks and purples.  Here's a quick overview:

Although very 'novelty', I do think the design of the eyeshadow pan is quite cool!


Diva In Distress - a middle-tone gray with a silver pearl touch shaped as a metallic jeans snap 
Motorhead - a middle-tone blue with a copper pearl touch shaped as a metallic jeans snap 
Stove Pipe Black - a black/gray shade with a copper pearl touch shaped as a metallic jeans snap
White Jeanius – a white shade with a silver pearl touch shaped as a metallic jeans snap

  
Acid Washed Grayish - a pearled beige
Pretty Please – a soft pink pearl shade
Riveting Rose Deep – a burgundy/violet pearled shade


Acid Washed Grayish - a pearled beige
Pretty Please – a soft pink pearl shade
Riveting Rose Deep – a burgundy/violet pearled shade

Overdyed Bright – a magenta shade
Pink Cult – a lovely pale pink shade


Biker Blue - a dark blue colored polish with pink and electric blue shimmers
Frayed-to-Order - a whitish pink nail polish with pearl shimmers
 The Penultimate brow maker and eye liner in Rapidblack will also be in the collection.

CHANEL
Les Perles de Chanel Makeup Collection for spring 2011

This makeup collection by Chanel was inspired by pearls which would embody the iridescent reflections of pearls.


The collection includes a new format of eye shadows – quints Ombres Perlees De Chanel

“CHANEL has created a tailor-made case to hold all of this magic. The classic black case becomes rectangular to contain five iridescent shades captured in a rich cream texture that glides smoothly over the skin. Blanc perlĂ©, Rose porcelaine, Violine clair, Gris vert and Gris noir scintillant offer a bewitching odyssey with each sumptuous and capricious colour. The exquisitely fresh eye shadows are applied easily with the double-tipped foam applicator or fingertips. They can even stray from the eyelids to enliven cheekbones with a touch of shine.”

Poudre Universelle Compacte
Rose Merveille, a pale pink with subtle sparkles for a halo of light.
Joues Contraste 
Espiegle, a silken rosy peach blush.


Rouge Coco
Jersey Rose, a pink that flatters all skin tones, to wear to your heart’s desire.
Peregrina, a delicate coral for the great outdoors.

Rouge Allure 
Flamboyante, a rosy red that shimmers like a promise of happiness. 
Coquette, a vivid, energising pink, steeped in radiance.

Le Crayon Levres  
Framboise 
Peche
Levres Scintillantes  
Nakkar, an intrepid soda pink warmed by golden facets. 
Aragonite, leaves a sheer finish of subtle pink and blue flecks on the lips
 

Le Vernis
Pearl Drop, pure and white in natural daylight, it reveals golden reflections under evening light. 
Black Pearl, a pearly grey shimmering with deep blue and green reflections, like a black pearl from the Pacific.
Peche Nacree, a soft and feminine shade that opts for a tender bronze effect.
 

Les 4 Ombres
Regard Perle, a palette dominated by a trio of pale, sunny tones, waiting for a dash of sparkling anthracite green to reveal all the facets of their character.
Le Crayon Yeux
Gris Scintillant, gives a dramatic attitude to light eyeshadows and emphasises the sophisticated style of darker colours.

  10. Lovin' all these blues and purples! I always seem to be drawn to those the most when it comes to eyeshadow, lipstick, and nail polish. And the denim-look shadow pans are really cute.

  11. Oooh! I like the MAC acid-washed grayish lipstick. It would look so good with "greige" nail polish.
