We are seeing lots of makeup collections being released for spring and summer 2013, from Chanel to Nars. So we thought we would show you a few of what we think are the best and most good looking releases - yes, we all like to get out our new, limited edition beautiful makeup out on the train for everyone to nosey at!

CHANEL L'Ete Papillon. This collection has been inspired by the 'dazzling colours of butterflies' and we think the colours are perfect for summer. Now this isn't everything in the collection, there are also eyeshadow sticks, eye liners and coloured mascaras (even a daring yellow shade).

CLARINS Splendours. Seven items make-up this collection, a bronzer, a colour quartet and eye liner palette, shimmer body oil, a crystal lip balm and gel, waterproof mascara and an instant light brush on perfector. The palettes are beautiful, think Aztec and Egyptian prints in gorgeous red and orange. The products themselves are made up of gold and bronze colours perfect for creating a sun kissed, just been on holiday look.

NARS Summer Shock. This collection is the most bright and vibrant collection for those that aren't afraid of bright yellow eyelids and orange nails - together! A particular favourite for us is the single shimmer eyeshadow in Euphrate which is described as 'frosted mint steel'.

DIOR Bird of Paradise. Another gorgeous collection containing a blush/bronzer duo in amazing silver luxe packaging, nail polishes, eyeshow palettes, and eye colour glosses - sounds strange a gloss for the eyes but they finish to a powdery form. If we had to choose a favourite from this collection, it would be the blue and green nail polishes. 

So that's our round up of our favourite summer collections. Hope you enjoyed! Remember to keep checking back for new blog posts.
