Chanel Rose Gold (30) Highlighting Powder Review, Photos, Swatches
Rosy Gold (30)
Chanel Rosy Gold (30) Highlighting Powder ($58.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and flecks of gold sparkle and finer, gold pearl. It had a soft, slightly dusty consistency, though the powder itself felt firmer in the pan (but not stiff or difficult to pickup with a brush or to blend out on the skin). The powder applied easily to my cheeks, diffused almost effortlessly along the edges, and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture, but I could see the sparkles present on the skin, which I know is a matter of preference. This shade wore well for eight hours on me before starting to fade.
Chanel described the powder as “leav[ing] a sheer, radiant finish,” and I’d expect “sheer” to indicate more of a veil of radiance, but I felt, while the shimmer/shine/finish of the powder was radiant, it was not sheer, subtle, or any type of veil of shimmer–it was stronger highlighter (which some will love and others will not).

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.

These really remind me of the Lancôme ones, even down to the packaging. For me, they have to be better at that price. They are pretty though. And Chanel.
Which Lancome ones?
The Dual Finish ones. The Lancôme ones are large. I have 3, and find them better than most I have.
The arm swatch may have appeared blah, but on the cheeks, it really is quite radiant. I’m not sure what to make of it, really! Not too sparkly compared to the previous one, I don’t think.
Looks good on you! Give you that instant glow..
Hi Temptalia :
I just discovered the world of cosmetic reviews . I should tell you that you are the best in reviewing the products . I have considered your swatches in my decision as to what products to buy . You go girl
This is about as highlighter-y as I’d go on my skin but yeah probably best to skip.
It looks beautiful and I’d give it a try if I didn’t already have both Charlotte Tilbury highlighters below, among others.
