Chanel Camelia de Chanel Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light, golden beige with warm undertones and a soft, sparkling sheen. There was both finer, more luminous shimmer and slightly larger, more noticeable sparkles in this product.

Chanel says the formula is supposed to be a “sheer highlighting powder.” The texture was fairly smooth, not at all dusty or powdery, and denser but not stiff or difficult to get product onto a brush. The included brush certainly worked for applying to the face, though I still preferred a myriad of other highlighting and blush brushes in my arsenal. It had more medium coverage than sheer, though with a lighter touch, sheer coverage was certainly possible. The coverage was also buildable to full with two to three layers, which I think made it a more versatile product. The highlighter didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture unless worn at more semi-opaque to opaque coverage, and then there was slight emphasis. On my normal-to-dry skin, it wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

Beige Dore (126)

Chanel Beige Dore (126) Rouge Coco Shine Hydrating Sheer Lipshine ($37.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft gold with fine pearl and a luminous sheen. It had sheer coverage, which primarily added a little warmth to my natural lip color and a moderate shimmer and shine.

The Rouge Coco Shine formula is supposed to “soften and hydrate lips” with sheer coverage. In general, the formula has the feel of a tinted lip balm–very emollient, moderate slip, and some shine–and has a similar coverage level. The lighter shades, like this one, tend to seem even sheerer as they don’t noticeably alter the lip color. The lipstick was easy to apply, comfortable to wear when it was on, and could be re-applied without having to look into a mirror. Unfortunately, the formula was not particularly hydrating on me, and with the wear-time (an hour and a half), it’s hard to get excited for this shade.

Chanel Lumieres de Kyoto Harmonie de Blush ($70.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark coral with warm, orange undertones and a gold shimmer strewn through a mostly matte finish.

The formula is supposed to “highlight, enhance and boost radiance for a luminous look” and consists of three shades–a soft, shimmery beige, muted coral-red, and light beige. The consistency was dusty and drier for me, which resulted in product not adhering as well to my arm (which is drier than my face) and looking noticeably powdery. It had semi-sheer, buildable coverage that looked better when I patted and buffed it onto my cheeks. It could have been a little more blendable for me, though, as it took some extra work to diffuse the edges when I tried it on my cheeks. The blush lasted for seven and a half hours before fading on me.
