Have a looky at a few products from the Chanel Summer 2008 makeup collection, which is expected to trickle out between April and May. The star items from the collection are clearly the Soleil Tan de Chanel (powder bronzers) and the Lumières Facettes (iridescent eye shadow quad).
The colors within the collection are earth toned and shimmery with a few fun hints of Miami Beach pinks and corals. If it reminds you a little bit of the Nars Summer 2008 Exotica collection, it's because both collections have incorporated browns, khakis, and iridescence to create an elegant safari look.
