Chanel 2009 Spring Beauty Collection

Coming Soon: Chanel Côte D'Azur Collection

Tanning wasn't always popular, but then Coco Chanel decided to go on vacation. The rest is history: After returning from holiday with a sun-kissed glow, people put away their sun-shelter umbrellas and basked in the UV rays. Mademoiselle Chanel created a suncare cosmetic line in 1929, and 80 years later, it has inspired the summer Côte D'Azur makeup collection.

Available online now and on counters in April, this makeup is all about bronze beauty — but being Chanel, it's a glamorous interpretation of the look. I've previewed a few of the items, so for a sneak peek,

.

The standout product is a loose powder, Soleil Tan de Chanel Poudre Précieuse Libre Effet Hâlé. It has golden shimmer and sparkle, but it's not a bronzer. Meant to be dusted on the face, shoulders, and décolleté, it has just the right amount of light-catching shimmer to be sexy without making you look like a Solid Gold dancer. What's more, you don't need to have a tan to wear this right now — both pale and dark-skinned women can wear this well.

I'm also into Aqualumière lipshine, and not just because it goes on smoothly and has SPF 15. Porto Rotondo is the perfect shade of casual red. When you don't want Dita Von Teese-style glamour but still want something flirty and punchy, this is the lipstick for you, trust. It has enough pigment to make an impact, but it's sheer enough to look youthful and fresh. Definitely worth a try if you're wanting to take a baby step into red lipstick — or if you just want to show off a tan.

It looks nice but to be honest it's a little pricey, I'm not THAT impressed.

Really pretty! I have a face palette by Chanel with a blush, 4 shadow shades, and a couple of lip colors. Pricey, but the quality is amazing.

Melon nail polish colour looks amazing. Revlon has something similar, but too bright for my taste. Chanel is more subtle.
