I am sooooooo excited! I finally got it!! I got the Chanel Camélia De Plumes highlighter!!! 2 things from my wishlist has been scratched off now! So happy! Alright so let’s jump on to the review, shall we? Oh yeah, one more thing, the whole collection is limited edition. So you might wanna run to your nearest Chanel Beauty Studio now!
What They Say :
♥ Illuminate cheekbones, eyelids or décolleté with a translucent veil of silver and gold.
♥ Inspired by Gabrielle Chanel’s original Fine Jewelry creations, this precious, limited-edition accessory is embossed with a feather motif in the shape of a camellia.
What I Say :
♥ Although in the pan it looks very silvery and icy, but it looks totally different when swatched. It gives a natural looking glow to the skin and you won’t be looking like an ice queen afterwards. It definitely has a subtle golden tones.
♥ The powder doesn’t feel chalky and it goes on smoothly when swatched.
♥ You need to be light-handed when using this highlighter so people won’t think like, wow this girl obviously has a highlighter on her cheeks! And besides, who wanna ruin that beautiful intricate design anyway? I might not use it so often like my other highlighters 😀
♥ I swatched it using my finger but normally I would use my Sigma F35 Tapered Highlighting Brush or my Sephora Fan Brush
In Comparison To : Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal
♥ Becca’s opal looks more yellow and has a slight champagne-ish gold tones which makes it look more intense while Chanel’s Camélia De Plumes has a slight golden plus the tiniest bit of silver gleam to it but not too much
♥ Becca’s shimmer is finely milled but looks a little over the top meanwhile the Chanel one although it goes on smooth but the shimmer particles doesn’t show up much hence the subtle highlight
♥ Swatches are blended and buffed to the skin using finger only thus it didn’t look too harsh
♥ Beautiful design
♥ Gives a natural highlighted look, it looks somewhat you ‘glow from within’
♥ Upon unboxing, I catch an odd smell, something like a ‘new car’ smell? I don’t know what smell it was but it doesn’t linger too long
