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.
A universally flattering powder highlighter that gives skin a subtle, ethereal glow with a soft-rose or pearly-white shimmer. Embossed with the design of a majestic lion, the sign under which Gabrielle Chanel was born, the exquisite illuminating face makeup creation comes in a rare, limited-edition burgundy compact.
