Clé de Peau Delicate Pink (14) Luminizing Face Enhancer ($55.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a pale, pink-tinged beige with a warm, golden champagne shimmer. Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is cooler-toned, less shimmery. Urban Decay Highlighter (P) is warmer. NARS Devotee (LE, $29.00) is warmer. Chanel Poudre Signee de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $68.00) is slightly warmer. Chanel Beiges Ombres Tissees (LE, $75.00) is darker, pinker, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

This shade seemed to be the most shimmery out of the four variations available, though it still applied with a soft, noticeable glowing sheen–luminous but not metallic or glittery on the skin, so it didn’t emphasize pores for me. The powder has a soft, finely-milled, silky texture that sits well on skin and is easily blended/sheered out, though it is fairly pigmented. It’s forgiving, so it doesn’t feel like you have to be careful when applying it, but you don’t need a lot to get a luminous sheen. On me, this highlighter lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

This range of highlight powders has been so stellar. Every one of them so far has looked really beautiful on you. I actually just ordered Pastel this weekend. This one, I am not favouring on you though. Not bad 3 out of 4 so far. I think this might suit light cool leaning skintones a bit better, or maybe it’s just the heavier shimmer which is detracting me.

I love them all but if you had to choose the most universally flattering for NC-15-20 skintone which would you choose (between #11 and 14) for that overall highlighter glow. I was leaning towards #14 but after your review, perhaps i should consider #11?

I’m glad to see you getting around to reviewing these beauties, Christine. I think a lot of women shy away from CdP because they think it’s budget breaking, but $55 (refill) for a product of such high quality is not unreasonable at all. I do own one of the gorgeous cases for when I travel and to use as an evening compact, but day in; day out, the sturdy plastic packaging actually works better since I keep my makeup organized in drawers at home.

I bought Pastel and Gold two years ago and since then have added Sand Beige and Delicate Pink. Because CdP’s target demographic is the more mature woman, these highlighters were designed to impart luminescence rather than any overt sparkle. If you’re close enough to see glitter rather than glow, you’re entirely too close! LOL

In general, I like to apply them in the classic “C” formation which emphasizes my eyes and cheekbones. It gives a subtle lift to my features which I find flattering. Since I’m NC15, each shade looks distinctly different on me. Delicate Pink is my go-to for winter into spring; Sand Beige is my summer into early fall shade. I use Pastel and Gold more for evening or festive occasions although Pastel does look stunning on a misty, cold day–very Ice Princess. CdP could release one of these every year and I’d be sure to scoop it up 🙂

It’s nice that they even offer refills/pans, because most brands don’t, let alone luxury priced ones like CdP. It at least makes it more viable for someone who can’t or won’t spend $95++ on a highlighter. ($55 is still a chunk of change, don’t get me wrong!)

I so want one of these. Will have to go back and check to try to decide on just one. Then I’ll add it to my long want list.I think getting a CdP highlighter is better than buying a LE of Dior od YSL, at least this fall, when I don’t much dare for either.
I just wish we had CdP here. I’m guessing I’ll have to order from Nordstrom or Barneys or someplace like that.
It’ll have to wait a while as there are a lot of bills right now, and emergency vet wasn’t cheap.

He is, thank you!
He is his usual playful (when he wants to), stubborn, loving, hungry self again. I hate when dogs, or any other pet gets sick. The worry!
This time at least I knew why he was sick. Dead bird, not eaten, just held, but that was enough.
I’m sure Mellan would never even think of doing such a disgusting thing.
