Chanel Brompton Road Poudre Tissee / Highlighting Powder and Blush

Chanel Brompton Road Poudre Tissee / Highlighting Powder and Blush ($80.00 for 0.50 oz.) is a limited edition powder from Chanel’s Knightsbridge collection. It’s supposed to “bring a radiant flush and iridescent shimmer to the face.” Like a lot of recent Chanel highlighters, this is one that seems well-suited for lighter complexions. It’s certainly not a blusher on light-medium or darker skin tones–on me, it gives my cheeks a bit of a washed out appearance when I used it as a blush.

The powder has a similar look as Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissees, though the underlying colors are different and set-up in another design. The finish seems subtler, though, as I found Beiges Ombres Tissees to be almost too frosted.  The wear is similar; around seven to eight hours before fading, which is good.

It has a silver glitter overlay, which is actually really, really annoying. I would highly recommend taking a big fluffy brush and really decimating that top layer and brushing it off. The glitter looks atrocious on the skin, even in tiny bits. Underneath, there are two colors: a pink-coral and pale ivory. Both of these have a subtle shimmer-sheen, while the pink-coral has a subtler finish–not quite matte but nearly. It’s not practical to use the colors individually (you would need to use an eyeshadow brush), so the swirled look is a pale petal pink with yellow undertones and a shimmer-sheen.

It is much, much lighter compared to Chanel Blush Horizon de Chanel, though the finish (amount of shimmer/sheen) is the same. I think Blush Horizon de Chanel is more versatile and flattering. Chanel Pink Cloud is yellower. Benefit Hervana is sheerer and yellower. Illamasqua Katie is blue-based but just as light.

This powder is one of the pricest powders I’ve purchased in the past couple of years. Even for Chanel, there was some sticker shock. The compact that’s most similar to this was Beiges Ombres Tissees–and it was $75 in August–four months later, add another $5.  The powder is hefty at 0.5 oz., which is nice, but this is certainly not a wallet-friendly blush/highlighter.
