Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder

Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder ($72.00 for 0.46 oz.) is an intricately embossed illumatinating powder that “gently highlights the skin with a sheer blend of tender pink and pearlescence.”  Of all the products I purchased from the holiday collection, I figured this was the one readers would be most interested in.

Chanel Holiday 2011 Collection: Les Scintillances de Chanel


Chanel Holiday 2011 Collection: Les Scintillances de Chanel

The iconic colours of Chanel — gold, red, beige and black — are a never-ending source of inspiration for Peter Philips, Creative Director of Chanel Makeup. The glamorous proof: his Holiday 2011 Collection, Les Scintillances de Chanel. Golden reflections delicately sculpt the face with light, while eyes and lips shimmer in festive tones.

Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder ($72.00) (Limited Edition)

A true visionary, Mademoiselle Chanel found inspiration everywhere. Today, the Paris Makeup Studio does similarly — capturing the gilded beauty of Mademoiselle’s treasured belt buckle in LUMIÈRE SCULPTÉE DE CHANEL Highlighting Powder, an illuminating powder that gently highlights the skin with a sheer blend of tender pink and pearlescence. Shades of ivory and pink dusted with tone-on-tone mother-of-pearls make this palette the height of glamour and sophistication.

Chanel Gris Exquis Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow

Chanel Gris Exquis Ombre Essentielle / Soft Touch Eyeshadow ($28.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a limited edition single eyeshadow described as “an elegant dove grey.” The Soft Touch formula is finely milled and can be applied wet or dry. Gris Exquis has a soft, silky feel against the skin, and the softness enables it to apply smoothly and blend out easily. It’s a satiny medium-dark gray–it doesn’t lean blue or brown. I like how it doesn’t venture into charcoal territory, but it’s also not too light that it starts looking silvery. theBalm’s Inspirational looks more gunmetal-like and has a more metallic finish. Inglot #339 comes the closest but almost looks a bit purpled around the edges in comparison.

Chanel Pink Cloud Joues Contraste

Chanel Pink Cloud (66) Joues Contraste / Powder Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a limited edition rose-hued blush that is supposed to give “a soft, natural-looking flush to cheeks.” It’s a soft, pale rosy pink with subtle yellow undertones and a satiny sheen. Whether layered or blended, it has a similar look–just a very light pink.  It’s not as pale as MAC Play It Proper, but it’s a little lighter than MAC Oh So Fair.
