Ivory Gold (10)

Chanel Ivory Gold (10) Highlighting Powder ($58.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It had good color payoff in a single layer, though the texture was forgiving and I felt like I could tone down the coverage and shine a bit by using a lighter hand. The highlighter felt smooth to the touch but after a couple of uses, the powder seemed to soften, though it never actually felt stiff.

Chanel described the powder as having a “sheer, radiant finish,” and I’d expect “sheer” to indicate more of a veil of radiance–it is not the clearest description. There are noticeable sparkles/micro-glitters in this particular shade, and there were quite a few, so I would only recommend this for someone who loves an over-the-top highlight. It had a very shiny, metallic finish and seemed to accentuate my skin’s natural texture just a bit at higher coverage levels. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.30 oz. - $193.33 Per Ounce

Chanel described the powder as having a “sheer, radiant finish,” and I’d expect “sheer” to indicate more of a veil of radiance–it is not the clearest description. There are noticeable sparkles/micro-glitters in both shades released, so I would consider it suitable for someone who likes sparkle and more intense highlighters. The powders applied, blended, and lasted well on my skin.

Or Rose

Chanel Or Rose Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a soft, light peach with warm undertones and pink and gold shimmer. The highlighter yielded a strong sheen on the skin, but it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was easy to apply and diffuse on the skin. It had semi-opaque color coverage that was buildable for greater shine and coverage, but it could also be used with a lighter hand (or even blended out) for sheerer coverage. For a subtle sheen on the skin, try tapping a tapered brush lightly onto the powder and then diffusing that onto the high points of the face. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.

Or Blanc

Chanel Or Blanc Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a pale, white gold with subtle, cooler undertones and a luminous sheen. The finish wasn’t quite metallic but was definitely shiny and noticeable on the skin. It had a smooth, moderately dense texture–the type that is firm, doesn’t kick up excess product, but is still easy to pickup product using a brush, even less dense ones. The powder yielded semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation in one layer but could easily be used with a lighter hand for a sheerer application. On me, it wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

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

Chanel Or Blanc Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Highlighter
Chanel Or Blanc Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Highlighter

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.

Blush Camelia Peche

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.
