Les Impressions de Chanel for Spring 2010: What Would You Get?

Published in: Just For Fun, Makeup

chanel spring 2010 makeup collection

Oy vey! Who’s ready to pounce with me on the spring 2010 makeup releases? I’m already stalking them, like a jungle cat hunting for makeup prey, mmrrow


OOH! Like Les Impressions de Chanel for spring 2010. We weren’t supposed to see it in stores until January, but the word on the street’s that it’s already on counters at Saks Fifth Ave.


The 19-piece collection leans toward neutrals, which means totes up my alley, with shades of pink, beige, warm brown and khaki for eyes, face, cheeks, lips and nails.

Could we be looking at Les Naturals de Chanel part deux (incidentally, one of my fave Chanel releases to date)?

I hope so! 🙂

And I’m itching to get my paws on that new Kaska Beige Quad. It looks like it might complement the Beiges de Chanel Quad from holiday 2008 quite well.

Ready to play another installment of What Would You Get?

    My top choices are the Particuliere nail polish and the eyeshadow quad as well. The colors in the quad are so pretty! For some reason, I’ve been into plum colors lately and that purple looks gorgeous. How do you like Chanel palettes in general? I’m brainstorming what to get my mom for Christmas, and I’m considering a bit of Chanel.

  2. shontay says:

    I love my Chanel, but all I really want from this is that awesome highlighting powder. Come to mama!

    • Karen says:

      Hey Shontay,

      That highlighting powder looks fun!

      Have you worn their pressed powders before? I’m using the Poudre Universelle and I really like it.

      • shontay says:

        No, I’ve never worn their pressed powders or any pressed powder for that matter.

        I just got back from bloomingdales and I bought the powder!!! I am flipping out because it is amazing! It’s lay down and die beautiful. LOL

  3. Merylynmagic says:

    Hey Karen!
    I am really feeling the Kaska beige quad, the highlight powder and the blush!!!

  4. Diana K. says:

    I think I would get:

    1. the Blush: you don’t really see too many copper shades for a cheek color unless its a bronzer
    2. Particuliere Nail Polish: gorgeous grey color!
    3. Kaska Beige Quad: I’m loving the neutral colors.
    4. Delicieuse lipstick
    5. Incognito lipstick
    6. Fultile glossimer

    I’m loving the natural feel of this collection. Nothing too crazy and unwearable but really still stands out.

    3. Kaska quad (Chanel and quad, need I say more?)
    4. Futile glossimer
    5. Délicieuse Rouge Allure
    6. Khaki doré eyeliner

  9. katie says:

    Ugh, I want that Kaska quad so much! And the Khaki eyeliner too. And the highlighter because I love anything and everything sparkly. And maybe the futile glossimer too.

    Khaki Doré Le Crayon Yeux
    Délicieuse Rouge Allure
    Incognito Rouge Allure

  12. Sarah says:

    Oh god, I saw the top picture and knew I was a goner!

    How could anyone not accept this mission?!

    I want practically everything! I love the highlighting powder – so cute! And hmm… let’s see… only 5 left… I’m liking the idea of grey nails – at least in an abstract way, so that’s a keeper… And then… the quad, the crayon in Khaki, Rose Agate lip color, and Delicieuse lip.

  13. NINA says:

    Thats a beautiful collection …. and this is my list:

    1 – Empreinte de Chanel –Its a beautiful product and anything that says ‘radiant” has got my vote.

    2 – Imprevu – Pretty blush, which I think will go well with the Empreinte de Chanel.

    3 – Kaska Beige – I think its a must have for eyeshadow addicts (like me!!!).

    4 – Khaki Dome – Will for sure go well in combination with Kaska Beige, plus its got glitter – im always a go for glitter!!!

    5 – Insouciante – I love the name of this product. Its so devil-may-care; and its an awesome color that I think goes well with my skin tone.

    6 – Maline – Its GOLD – `nuff said. Plus, its another pretty name: if I ever had a daughter, I would name her Maline.

    It may be weird, but the name of the product would be a determining factor for me in deciding to buy a beauty product or not. 😀

  14. lesley says:

    I would love the highlighting powder, the quad, and to try out the khaki eye liner! That quad is calling out to me… I don’t think I can resist the temptation……. xD So yes, those are the only three I want… for now 😉

    By the way, is the first sign of becoming a crazy cat lady syndrome spending 4 hours at home just randomly taking pictures of my two kitties (sleeping, eating, sleeping some more, playing)?

    After our move, hubby and I thought to adopt two orange kitties and I can’t get enough of them! 🙂

  15. Marie says:

    I can’t decide between Particulière or Inattendu! Maybe I need to get them both 🙂

  16. BeckBeck says:

    If I weren’t paying for this myself… all three polishes, the eyeliner, the shadow quad, and Delicieuse lipstick. 😉

  17. Marce says:

  18. Glosslizard says:

    I want Kaska Beige and Particuliere too! I think I also want the lippie in Insouciante for the color and the name! 😀

  19. Kylie says:

    1. Imprevu Joues Contraste Blush
    2. Empreinte De Chanel
    3. Kaska Beige Quad
    4. Sillage Mono Eyeshadow
    5. Impertinente Rouge Allure

  20. Lisa S. says:

    Ok my pics are…….. (can you hear the drum roll?)
    Particuliere nail color
    Kaska Beige shadow quad
    Trace Ombre Essentielle shadow (lovely to trace over my liner around the eyes)
    Torrent Ombre D’eau fluid iridescent eye shadow (I’m a sucker for anything iridescent)
    Incognito Rouge Allure
    Futile Glossimer

  21. Cris says:

    I saw the whole collection last night at Neuman Marcus here in Jersey and it is nothing less than lovely! I will pass by tonight and the quad will be mine!

  22. Alison says:

    Just six? I want it all!!!! Definatly want Particuliere le vernis, Empriente de Chanel, the quad, deliceuse rouge allure, I will probably end up with all three of the nail polishes to add to my growing collection. I also really like the look of inscouciante too.

  23. gio says:

    I’m not into neutral shades so I’m not really digging this collection. The only thing I like is the highlighting powder, it looks gorgeous!
    .-= gio’s last blog post… Product Review: Senna Double Dose Blush =-.

  24. The eye shadow quad fo sho
    The highlighter
    prob all 4 rouge allures
    the glossimers look a bit too sparkle laden

    of course I’d take it all. I’m really excited to see this collection in person cuz I’m all about neutrals!!!

  25. Marina says:

    This collection is already available onlin( at least @ Nordstorm, I just checked)
    I don’t think that I would get 6 pieces from this collection since I just got a holiday lip glosses set from Chanel and some products from YSL but I think about getting
    Kaska Beige shadows and
    Délicieuse lipstick

  26. katy says:

    I want it all! I haven’t gone on a full blown Chanel bender in at least 2 years!!!!

  27. resham says:

    This is such a lovely quad. Its just too expensive….I keep commenting this on every blog and websites that mentions about the quad…..I wish someone holds a contest…and I win this…:)
    Have fun in Hoildays….:)

    What is that on the model’s neck in that photo?

  30. emma says:

    I’m not digging any of this. I like neutrals, but the eye quad is too muddy for my olive skin tone, and I’m waiting for Nars, Givenchy, and Dior instead. The real test of a good e/s for me is when I wear it without blush. Without some color on my face, the shadows would do nothing for me, so it’s a no-buy.

  31. Julie says:

    for me its:
    1. particuliere nail polish
    2. inattendu nail polish
    3. tendrese nail polish
    4. kaska quad
    5. imprevu JC blush
    6. insouciate RA
    .-= Julie’s last blog post… Day 96 =-.

  32. Gail says:

    Think I have to have the quad – Had my makeup done by a Chanel makeup artist & he used all of these things – The highlighter is nice but check out the holiday one before its gone – The holiday one will be a highlight & bronzer when the top is used up & it can be used to highlite & contour vs. this one will only highlight. Love everything as usual.

  33. Christy says:

    I would get:
    1. Kaska Beige Quad
    2. Particuliere Nail Polish
    3. Deliciuese Lip Stick
    4. Incognito Lip Stick
    5. Maline Glossimer
    6. Futile Glossimer

    I think I’m more drawn to the top 3, than the bottom 3 though.

  34. Leanne says:

    I just saw this collection in person and I really want Sillage!! It looks gorgeous! I liked Particuliere too but I already got Orange Fizz recently so I don’t know about that 😛

  35. Susie says:

    I love the eye quad, the eye pencil, the blush, the rouge allure lipsticks in the apricot shade and maybe the mauve one–in any event, the best ones for a fair-skinned, blue-eyed blondie, which I am–and the darker nail polish and the nude one, plus the new base and top coats. I have the last 2 highlighters so I don’t need another one but what the heck i will see it and go nuts for it and get it. I think the Chanel makeup is simply the best. I put it on very early in the day and it stays through work and workout at the gym.

  36. Jeanie Bee says:

    1. Particuliere nail polish
    2. Kaska beige eye shadows quad
    3. Single eye shadow in Sillage
    4. Impreinte de Chanel
    5. Blush

    I only need 5, really. 🙂

  37. Michele D says:

    Kaska eye
    I really don’t need blush
    i love all the Lippies;
