Top 10 of 2012: Blushes & Highlighters

Top 10 of 2012: Blushes & Highlighters

Asking me to choose my favorite highlighter, by the way, is akin to making me choose favorites between (fur) children (if I had more than one). There were some seriously ga-ga-glowing highlighters launched this year, too! On the blush front, there were some great shades and formulas I tried and tested, but it was easier to narrow those down.

What was your favorite blush/highlighter from 2012?

Chantecaille Rose Petals (Les Petales de Rose) Illuminating Face Powder

Chantecaille Rose Petals (Les Petales de Rose) Illuminating Face Powder ($74.00 for 0.42 oz.) is described as a “sheer, flattering glow [for] all skin tones” with “light-perfecting powders [that] provide a veil of subtle radiance, while [being] long-lasting, comfortable.” It’s a pale pink with a golden shimmer-sheen; when it’s layered on heavily, it looks mostly pink, but when sheered out, you’ll see all of the shimmer, sheen, and luminosity come through. NARS Albatross has a similar sheen, but it has more of a creamy white base, rather than a pink-tinged one. MAC Lightscapade has more shimmer, less sheen.
Guerlain Cruel Gardenia is darker, less cool-toned.  The general way it looked on the skin reminded me of the majesty of Guerlain’s Parure de Nuit.

Chantecaille Spring 2012 Collection

Chantecaille Spring 2012 Collection

Chantecaille introduces The Coral Reefs Palette in an effort to help gain ongoing support and raise awareness for our ocean’s endangered reefs. The palette captures the pretty, polished, clean and feminine fashion trends of the spring season, creating a healthy, fresh and natural look- a perfect compliment to fashion’s colorful prints and omnipresent pastels and whites. Soft eyes are delicately highlighted with a wash of sheer pastels and anchored by warm bronze hues. Coral pink cheeks are accented with bright citrus and pink lips to complete the radiant youthful glow.

Coral Reefs Palette ($79.00)

Chantecaille proudly joins the Marine Conservation Institute in their efforts to protect 10% of the world’s oceans by 2020. The oceans cover 71% of the earth, providing 80% of our oxygen and food for 3.5 billion people; yet less than one half of one percent of our oceans are protected. The health of the ocean is vital and coral reefs are the alert system. Today three quarter’s of the world’s coral reefs are now at risk due to over fishing, pollution, and global warming. Maintaining 10% of the ocean’s ecosystems as “no take marine protected areas” is the best chance for coral’s survival. Three Eye Shades – Pink Pearl, Reef, and Driftwood and one Cheek Shade in Coral are delicately embossed with a vanishing branch of coral. The beautiful colors of clean and fresh pastels take cues from the Spring catwalks. Comprised of the finest pearl and pigment particles, the palette shades create a natural, satin, sheer veil with a glowing effect. *5 % of all proceeds will be donated to Marine Conservation and their campaign to protect 10% of our oceans by 2020.

Espresso Gel Eyeliner ($32.00)

Last season’s innovative Gel Eye Liner is now available in Espresso, a rich, luxurious and defining brown. Comprised of natural waxes and adherent film formers, the smooth gel formula is housed in an easily sharpened wooden pencil. Water-resistant and long wearing for immediate and impactful, smudge-proof definition that lasts up to six hours. The dual-ended pencil’s brilliant multi-purpose angled brush draws, cleans and defines the perfect line along the lashes. It can also be pulled upwards to create the perfect smoky eye.

Sunrise Lip Chic ($32.00)

Sunrise, a bright coral pink shade, reflects the striking pink and peach petals of the multi-colored Sunrise Rose. The highly emollient formula offers the even coverage of a lipstick with the high shine and plumping effects of a gloss. Added collagen gives lips a boost, leaving them fuller and decidedly more youthful in appearance without any irritation.

Coral Lip Definer ($24.00)

Coral, a flattering papaya lip pencil, that perfectly finishes the season’s bright citrus lips. Rich in Vitamin E, the on trend hue offers a soft, matte, and smudge free look. The time-tested process of extrusion results in a clean, enduring line that blends naturally.

Lucky Brilliant Gloss ($33.00)

Lucky, a soft golden pink, has been added to our best selling Brilliant Gloss collection. The universally flattering shade is inspired by the sheer pinks and pastels of the season. Botanical microspheres with cross-linked sugars will immediately plump lips naturally and safely. A never sticky, innovative jellified system of elastic polymers and emollient oil creates shine and comfort.
