Chanel Metal Peach Illuminating Powder ($70.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium peach with balanced, warmer undertones between pink and orange. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, almost cream-powder feel to it–it felt silky to the touch, had a bit of slip, but it applied and performed more like a powder overall.
The highlighter sank and “melted” onto my skin as I buffed and blended out the powder on my cheeks, which ensured it never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for nine hours before fading noticeably on me.
Christine has normal-to-dry skin with areas of dryness (cheeks, nose, and under the eyes). She has a light-medium skintone with subtle, warmer yellow undertones.
