Chanel is legendary for creating beautiful easy to use highlighters. I’m a bit klutz-y with highlighter application and always have a successful run with many of the ones I’ve tried from Chanel.
Chanel Poudre Signee de Chanel Illuminating Powder is a sheerer highlighting powder that creates a soft, light reflecting luminosity on skin.
Take a look!
Chanel Poudre Signee de Chanel Illuminating Powder ($68) is a delicate, pale shade of light pink beige. The shade has a certain golden reflecting when applied on my cheeks and face. The color should be more than suitable for most skin types as the glow it produces is a universally flattering light that reflects pale, golden pink. If you’re super suave with your application most any skin type should be able to use this so don’t be deceived by its pale pastel-like shade if you have darker skin, it should work out fine for you!
This is a refined, silky powder sans any chunks of glitter or shimmer. Many highlighters depend on shimmer to produce the glowing effect but this has a lovely iridescent finish sans any major sparkle. Chanel includes a large sponge applicator for application. This slides easily across the powder and allows you to accurately smooth the powder on cheeks, above brow bones, or down the curve of your nose.
I felt like the finish was very subtle but the results are there when you turn your face to a certain light as it is very noticeable. It’s difficult to capture the glow in photos sadly and I’m no great photographer.
Unlike some of Chanel’s more recent highlighters which act as more of a finishing powder than an illiumnator Poudre Signee de Chanel Illuminating Powder gives glow and radiance with a few strokes.
Perfect for Spring looks.
It’ll be available this January at high end counters everywhere or online at Chanel.com
