Sneak Peek: Chanel Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Highlighter & Powder Highlighter Swatches

For the holiday shopping week that is Black Friday/Cyber Monday, Chanel released two limited edition highlighters–Or Blanc and Or Rose–along with a limited edition blush–Blush Camelia Peche (reviewed here). The blush has sold out, and while I hope to get reviews of the two highlighters up quickly, I wanted to share swatches even sooner.

When I bought the blush on Monday, I also saw that they had two new (seemingly permanent!) highlighters, too, which I’ve included below, but anyone who doesn’t like sparkle/glitter in their highlighter will likely find Ivory Gold and Rosy Gold too much.

Chanel Blush Camelia Peche Joues Contraste Blush ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium coral with warm undertones and a satin finish. It was a limited edition blush released for Cyber Monday (2017), and it sold out in less than two days–it was gone by the time my package arrived the next morning!–so I’m really just here with some dupes, I guess.

The blush is comprised of two of the brand’s blush shades–Espiegle (discontinued) and Malice (permanent)–and comes in a blush-sized compact with a floral pattern. The consistency was smooth, silky, and blendable on the skin with good pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.

Chanel Burnt Coral (390) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a dark copper with warm, red undertones and faint gold and copper pearl. The consistency was moderately dusty, and I did not expect much out of it as a result, but it was an instance where the application was a lot better in practice. It had medium, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with minimal effort, and lasted for a solid eight hours.

Chanel So Close (380) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a bright (nearly neon!) orange with warm, reddish undertones and a natural finish. It seemed more matte in the pan, but the more I diffused and blended out the powder on the skin, the more natural the finish seemed to appear–not quite matte, not quite satin. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty in the pan but did not look dry or powdery on the skin.

I actually found that it looked less orange and more pink-coral when worn at semi-sheer to medium coverage, so keep that in mind if you’re really on the hunt for something more orange applied. I had no trouble blending out the powder, and I felt like it wasn’t too difficult to use a lighter hand or less-dense brush to get more buildable application but would not describe it as buildable to begin with (which is how Chanel’s blushes are marketed). This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading.
