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.

Can Chanel leave me alone with the beautiful holiday products for at least one year? I have to buy Christmas presents yet here I am feeling personally targeted.

What a beautiful highlighter this one turned out to be! The design of the lion is also very cool, and has an art deco feel to it. If it truly is permanent, it will be impossible for me to resist!

Ahhhhhh Christine!!! I have been waiting for you to review this!!! Will you be reviewing the “OR ROSE” shade as well? And also the new POUDRE LUMIÈRE Highlighting Powder by them as well?!? I cannot decide which one to get at all!!!!

For those who did not get Camelia de Plumes this is a nice dupe. It looks beautiful on you, Christine. It is very brightening. Glad to see that it is permanent so I can get it when my Camelia de Plumes is gone, if I live that long!! I think I have enough highlighters to last me my lifetime.

I’ve had such a hard time tracking this special highlighter down!! Just letting everyone know, they don’t deliver to Canada at all. There still might be a chance through Holt Renfrew, but they haven’t returned my call yet.
I’m a Leo, and have been looking for a White/gold highlighter and this ones looks so pretty 🙂

Shauna,
Not sure if it is still available or if you would want to go this route but I follow an Instagram channel that I learned about from a reader here on Temptalia. I cannot remember who but anyway, the IG channel is: fudejapan
They show pictures of products that they have purchased and will sell via their website or their IG. You can leave them a message on the IG photo of the product you want or you can go to their website by clicking the link in their bio. The website gives instructions for how to order. You are able to purchase via Paypal or a credit card. I use Paypal. They will send you an invoice. The invoice will show the cost with shipping and it will be in yen so you have to calculate the conversion (google did it for me) and then they will send you a notice when the product ships.
Again, I don’t know what you are comfortable with but I saw they had this on their IG about 3 days ago.

I like it although I won’t be purchasing it because of the color. Too light for me. I do hope Chanel will consider putting this formula in their permanent line with more shades because I definitely like it,
