Poudre Lumiere Glacee
Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee Silver Reflections Shimmering Powder ($45.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a very light white with subtle, cooler undertones and a smattering of white sparkle.
It’s a new, limited edition formula that’s described as a “highlighting powder [that] softly illuminates” with a “shimmering, pearlescent glow.” Long-time readers will know I have a personal weakness for highlighters, particularly smooth, silky, finely-milled ones, but Chanel disappointed me with this release with its chalky, powdery, and clumpy “highlighter” with minimal luminosity. It is largely a white-based powder with a touch of larger sparkle in it–I would not say it is a glow nor is it “micro-fine” in feel. Extremely fair complexions might be able to dust this all over, but the powder does not seem to add luminosity but rather dulls skin, while the sparkle is sparse but large enough that it just doesn’t give any glow. When I wore it as a cheek highlighter, it lasted for seven hours before fading.
