Chanel Coco Codes Spring/Summer 2017 Makeup Collection Review Swatches

Defying Color Conventions With the Chanel Coco Codes Spring 2017 Makeup Collection

A few pieces from the Chanel Coco Codes Spring/Summer 2017 Makeup Collection. Clockwise from top left corner: Les 4 Ombres in 274 Codes Élégants, Coco Code Blush Harmony, Rouge Coco Shine in 128 Noir Moderne, Stylo Yeux Waterproof in 932 Mat Taupe, Le Top Coat in Black Métamorphosis, and Le Vernis in 556 Beige Beige

I really like how Lucia Pica, fellow Italian and Chanel’s Global Creative Makeup and Color Designer, is defying color conventions through the brand’s seasonal collections.

Last fall, with the Le Rouge Collection N°1, she told us that it’s OK to wear red on the lips AND on the eyes (and on the cheeks and on the nails). Actually – what am I saying? It’s not just OK! It looks flattering and beautifully cool.

Then, for Christmas, with the Holiday 2016 Collection Libre, she made us ditch the reds and golds and wear silvers and blues instead.

And now, for the spring, instead of the usual insipid pastels, we get a collection featuring the iconic Chanel colors: black, white, beige, gold, and red.

Are you as intrigued as I am?
