Poppy & Barley Cologne: “Rich red poppies dancing in the wind. Violet flowers, alive

Here is a preview of the Chanel’s makeup collection for Spring 2018 which was inspired by Lucia Pica’s hometown, Naples. And it is such a beautiful, colourful and uplifting collection for SS, think yellow, pink and teal.

And since I have a bronze shade in a Stylo format (147 Caroube), I have  all the colours I need/use.

Both colours are incredibly beautiful and complex, you can get a sheer wash of colour with a
