Le Lion de Chanel

Chanel Le Lion de Chanel Lie Signe du Lion Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium, golden peach with warm, orange undertones and a sparkling, luminous sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a moderate sheen that intensified to more metallic when worn at full coverage. Per the brand, they said to “build coverage for a more intense highlighting effect,” which was fairly accurate; I’d just say it was more of a moderate glow at semi-sheer to medium coverage, not “subtle” as suggested. The powder was smooth to the touch, denser and firmer but not stiff or difficult to diffuse and blend out on my skin. I would recommend using a moderately dense blush or highlighting brush to pick up product from the pan, though. It applied evenly to bare skin and didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before it started to fade on me.

Laguna and Fort de France

NARS Laguna and Fort de France Little Fetishes ($24.00 for 0.21 oz.) contains the brand’s iconic Laguna bronzer along with more recently-released Fort de France highlighter. The bronzer performed poorly for me–very stiff and dry in the pan, which yielded product in clumps and was difficult to apply and build up. The highlighter performed well, but the bronzer was so disappointing that I’d give this set a miss myself.

A full-sized Bonzing Powder retails for $40.00 and contains 0.28 oz. or costs $142.86/oz. A full-sized Highlighting Powder retails for $38.00 and contains 0.49 oz. or costs $77.55/oz. This set contains $11.43 worth of bronzer and $10.08 worth of highlighter for a total value of $21.51.

This set is exclusive to NARS and Sephora.

Midnight Wish

Dior Midnight Wish Rouge Blush (Shimmer) ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen with faint sparkles. There seemed to be a slight rosiness to it as it looked a bit coppery at certain angles (when it wasn’t reflecting light as much). It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was denser and firmer in the pan, but it wasn’t stiff or thick, so it was still easy to pick up with a brush and blended out easily on my skin. It yielded a strong shine that was bordering on metallic, and it seemed to emphasize skin’s natural texture when worn at semi-opaque to opaque coverage levels. It stayed on nicely for nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

Naked Cherry

Urban Decay Naked Cherry Highlighter & Blush Palette ($34.00 for 0.51 oz.) contains a pale peach highlighter, mid-tone pink blush, and iridescent white “topper” (aka highlighter). This palette is definitely going to work best for fairer complexions, though the blush is marketed as “universally-flattering.” The Naked Cherry collection seems like a big launch for the brand, so it struck me as odd not to create standalone cheek colors or else a light and dark version of a cheek trio to reach their very diverse customer base. The quality of the blush left a lot to be desired, so the trio was a big miss for me regardless of whether it was going to show up on my skin tone (which it did).

Dolce Vita and Capri

NARS Dolce Vita and Capri Little Fetishes ($24.00 for 0.26 oz.) contains a pinky-beige highlighter and a reddened-plum blush, and both shades are available individually within NARS’ permanent range. They performed consistently with the full-sized, individually-sold versions I last tried, so I think it’s a good way to enjoy both products without having to spend much–two shades for less than the cost of one! They’re by no means tiny, so one should get plenty of use out of each (frankly, the highlighter formula at full-size is massive!).

A full-sized blush retails for $30.00 and contains 0.16 oz. or costs $187.50/oz. A full-sized Highlighting Powder retails for $38.00 and contains 0.49 oz. or costs $77.55/oz. This set contains $22.50 worth of blush and $10.86 worth of highlighter for a total value of $33.36.

This set is exclusive to NARS (available now) and Ulta (available 10/14).

Pink Glow

Bobbi Brown Pink Glow Highlighting Powder ($25.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a soft, pinky-peach with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had good pigmentation but was significantly lighter than the full-sized version I have, which may have been owed to the fact that the pan itself was dominated by the pale gold/white base with little of the rose/copper coloring. The powder had a smooth, almost velvety texture that was denser but not stiff or difficult to work with. It applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort. I found the mini’s texture to be more flattering on my skin as it did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight hours on me before fading slightly.

The full-sized version retails for $48.00 and contains 0.28 oz. The mini contains $24.00 worth of product.
