Chanel Delice (78) Joues Contraste Powder Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a pale, aqua-shimmered white highlighter. In the promo photos, it looked more minty green, and in real life, it looked nearly white except for a very faint hint of green–but at a glance, it looked mostly white. Giorgio Armani Moonlight White #1 is similar. Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel is less shimmery. See comparison swatches.

I worried that such a pale color would turn chalky or ashy against my medium skin tone, but it actually worked quite well as a highly reflective, shimmered highlighter, so I was happy to see it will be something that not just very fair complexions can use. The texture was soft, finely-milled, and easy to blend on the skin. In the photo below, I wore it on top of my cheek bones and lightly on my nose and brow bone. It is somewhat buildable, so you can go from a very translucent, almost finishing-like effect to a more obvious shimmer-sheen finish (like I wore on cheeks). A heavier application did emphasize pores slightly that was visible at a close distance but not from afar, while a lighter application gave a soft all-over glow without emphasizing any imperfections. It lasted well for seven hours, and after eight hours, it looked slightly patchy.
