Warm Gold (20)

Chanel Warm Gold (20) Highlighting Powder ($58.00 for 0.30 oz.) is a medium, peachy gold with warm undertones and a soft, golden pearl shimmer. It had good pigmentation with a luminous sheen that was moderate–definitely not a subtle glow, but it wasn’t metallic, foil-like, or sparkly. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and easy to work with on the cheeks, as it blended out with little effort, though the surface of the powder had a denser, firmer feel (but it wasn’t stiff!). It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$58.00/0.3 oz. - $193.33 Per Ounce

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.

This is my idea of the perfect highlighter! It has lots of glow and sheen, but it doesn’t look glittery or a cray level of metallic, either. (Disclaimer; we all know how much I love a good metallic highlighter, but I digress.) This is one I could see myself using up completely!

This shade is really cute though I must admit, I don’t think of Chanel when I think about highlighters. I recently purchased the Signe du Lion, so I might now with this purchase. I tend to reach for Tom Ford or Bobbi Brown or Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson, listed as a dupe and one if my all-time fave highlighters.

PPSS – I tried using your link to Nordstrom for this, first it did not take me directly to a Chanel highlighting powder, and when I searched there were 3 different colors of but none said Warm Gold or #20 – maybe they don’t have it yet?

Strange, Sephora has them named, even though the promo images look like Chanel’s for this line, which are labeled as 10 Ivory Gold, 20 Warm Gold, 30 Rosy Gold, so I don’t know why Nordstrom’s names are totally different for the same images.

I couldn’t find it in Sephora either. If anyone knows which name in Nordstrom is the 20 Warm Gold equivalent please let me know. Thanks!
