(Relaxnews) – Chanel has added a new limited-edition collection to its “Le Blanc” makeup range for spring 2016. Inspired by the bright radiance of Coco Chanel’s beloved pearls, the “Les Sautoirs de Coco” collection will be available in selected regions from Chanel.com from the end of the month.

This limited-edition collection is inspired by Gabrielle Chanel — aka Coco — and her iconic look of glistening pearls against all-black clothing. This striking contrast lit up her face with a bright radiance that the French fashion house has now captured in a makeup collection, “Les Sautoirs de Coco,” that pays homage to its founder.

Fresh face, bright eyes

This new collection in Chanel’s “Le Blanc” makeup range includes a highlighter directly inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite neckwear. Named “Perles et Fantaisies,” this exclusive creation combines two pearly powders, with a pink to brighten the complexion and a pearly white to highlight (€58 or $70).

Eyes are lifted with the iridescent shimmer of the “Les 4 Ombres – Tissé Ombre de Lune” eyeshadow palette. This includes four shades that reflect the different nuances of pearl, with a gray, a pearly gold, a pink and a black (€51 or $61).

Another option for eyes is the “Illusion d’Ombre” luminous eyeshadow in “Iridescent,” an almost translucent shimmering shade that brightens and illuminates eyes (€31 or $36).

Bold lips

In contrast to the subtlety of the rest of the look, lips go bright with three intense new shades of “Lèvres Scintillantes” gloss: “Pinctada,” a hot pink, “Babiole,” a rich red, and “Clarté,” a pearly shade with iridescent sparkle (€28 or $30 each).

For stronger color, there’s a “Rouge Allure” lipstick in “Indémodable,” a timeless red shade, and a “Rouge Allure Velvet” lipstick in “La Délicate,” a fresh pinky color (€34 or $37 each).
