To begin with, it feels like a very long time when I reviewed the Chanel Spring/Summer 2020 Collection. All I can remember were these beautiful spring/summer products were overshadowed by lockdowns as a result of Covid 19. That was another day, and another time. Now, we have a lot to look forward to. Once we are all vaccinated, we can start thinking about living our lives again. This is why the New, Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 Collection Perles Et Eclat, is so exciting. The Perles collection, inspired by strands of pearls, that Coco Chanel wore to illuminate her face and eyes.
In addition, the collection includes the new Allure Et Eclat eyeshadow quad. Even more, the collection introduces the Stylo Ombre Et Contour Eyeshadow Liner Khol in two Limited Edition shades. Also, the Collection consists of the Pearles De Lumiere Baume Essential Multi Glow Stick in two exclusive shades. Finally, there are several lipsticks and lip balms in the collection. I chose the Rouge Coco Flash, in a sheer, pearlescent pink shade. All of the Spring Collection products work to illuminate your eyes, cheeks, and lips. As a result, you will be able to create a pearlescent , Spring glow.
You can find the entire collection on the Chanel Beauty Website. First, the Allure Et Eclat Eyeshadow Quad ( 0.14 oz. / 4g) costs $65. Next, the Stylo Ombre Et Contour Eyeshadow Liner Khol in Beige Pearl and Burgundy Pearl, (2 X .02 oz / 8 g) each costs $34. Also, the Perles de Lumiere Baume Essential Multi Glow Stick ( 2 X 0.28 / 8g) each costs $45. Finally, the Rouge Coco Flash in Douceur (0.1 oz. / 3g) costs $40.
The Packaging For The New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 Collection Perles Et Eclat
First, all of the outer boxes are signature Chanel black lacquer boxes. Also, the writing on the boxes is white. Finally, the trim on the boxes is metallic gold.

Also, the products are in signature Chanel packaging. First, the eyeshadow quad comes inside the signature black dust bag. When you take the compact out of the dust bag, you have the Chanel signature shiny black compact. Inside, there is a nice, full mirror underneath the lid. On the other side of the mirror are the four eyeshadow pans. Also included inside the compact are two sponge applicators.
The New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 Stylo Ombre Et Contour Eyeshadow Liner Kohl
Next, the Stylo Ombre Et Contour Eyeshadow Liner Kohl comes in a retractable pencil case. Also, the liner has a crayon-like point. And, when you need more product, all you need to do is turn the bottom of the liner, and the crayon will twist up. Last, the liner kohl comes with a lid. Therefore, the lid makes the liner more transportable. Also, it protects the liner from drying out.
The New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 Perles de Lumiere Baume Essential
Additionally, the Perles de Lumiere Baume Essential comes in a thick tube. When you need more product, turn the top of the tube. As a result, the Lumiere Baume will twist up! Last, the Baume comes with a lid. In this way, the baume is more easy to take with you! Also, it keeps the balm clean. Finally, it prevents the balm from drying out.
The New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 Rouge Coco Flash
Last, the Rouge Coco Flash comes in a lipstick tube. Underneath the lid , the tube has a slanted opening. Therefore the lip balm is on a slant. Why? Maybe, Chanel wants you to apply the Coco Flash, a luxury item, as you would your lipstick. The Coco Flash tip resembles the shape of a slanted lipstick tip. As a result, the tube design lets you apply the Rouge Coco Flash formula as you would your lipstick. Otherwise, you’d apply it like a chapstick! And, we are talking a Chanel lip balm, not Chapstick!
Allure Et Eclat # 374 New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 Collection
First, the Allure Et Eclat Palette shades were inspired by the colors in Chanel Tweed threads!
Next, the shadows are pure powder pigments. And, the pigments are long-lasting. Even more, the texture of the powder feels creamy. As a result, the shades are blendable.
Also, the color payoff is sheer in three of the shadows. One shade, Burgundy, is deeper, and gives you good color payoff.

Stylo Ombre Et Contour Eyeshadow Liner Kohl In Beige Pearl #40, and Burgundy Pearl # 38 New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021
To begin with, these Eyeshadow Liner Kohls can be used in many ways. First, you can wear them on your waterline. Also, the Kohl makes a great gase for powder eyeshadow. And, considering how light the three shades of the Allure Et Eclat, these liner Kohls can make the shades more intense. Last, you can smudge the Kohl out to create a diffused look.
The two shades in the Spring/Summer Collection are limited editions. First, Beige Pearl # 40, a bronze brown shade, has a pearlized finish.
Second, Burgundy Pearl #38, a coppery rosewood shade, has a metallic finish.
The buttery smooth shades glide on easily. You have a few seconds of playtime before they dry down. However, once they set, they do not budge.

First, the Baume Essentiel Multi Glow Stick is a multi-tasker. One, it is a glow-enhancing balm for eyes, lips and face. Also, the stick gives you a natural-looking, fresh, dewy glow. Even more, the stick easily glides on your face.
Additionally, the balm has a smooth, silky texture. You can wear the sticks on their own. And, you can also wear the stick over your makeup.
The two limited edition shades in the Perles Et Eclat Collection are Pearlescent, a pearl shade, with a glowing dewy finish, and Printanier, a hint of blush shade, with a glowing, dewy finish.
Rouge Coco Flash #154 Douceur New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021
The Rouge Coco Flash is a sheer, shimmering, hydrating lip balm.
Also, Douceur, a pearlescent pink shade, has a soft pink shine.
I love that it gives my lips a beautiful pink tint.
My Final Thoughts On The New Chanel Spring/Summer 2021 Perles De Eclat Collection…….
To begin, I love that the Perles De Eclat Collection is all about Coco Chanel’s pearls. In fact, she wore strands of pearls to illuminate her face, and eyes. As a result, the Perles De Eclat Collection uses makeup to illuminate your face and eyes. Above all, I was disappointed with the Allure Et Eclat eyeshadow Palette. One reason is three of the four shades were very sheer. Even more, the color payoff is subtle. Unfortunately, I had a difficult time swatching the three shades. In other words, if you can barely see three shades, what is the point?
I loved the two Eyeliner Kohl shades. Also, you can wear these as shadows. And, they show up. Also, I love the Multi Glow Sticks! They are great for the summer. Also, they are very hydrating and feel good on the skin. Last, the Rouge Coco Flash is a fun lip balm. The tint of pink had an opalescent glow which is really pretty.
