Chanel Lumiere d’Artifices Beiges Illuminating Powder ($65) is part of the Les Essentials de Chanel Fall 2012 Collection.
Lately the thing I’m loving about some of Chanel’s Illuminating Powder releases is they aren’t so sparkly that you can’t use them as a finishing powder of sorts.
Take a look!
I dunno about you but I definitely have a certain affection for pretty powders. But I have grown up a little and my makeup life has matured to a point where I’ll analyze said pretty powder and ask myself a few questions prior to a purchase.
- Do I really need this powder?
- Am I just buying it because it’s pretty?
- Will I actually use it or will it sit in my stash unused merely brought out on special occasions to stare at?
Somethings you have to be a little grown up about these things but sadly, this technique doesn’t always work and I become overwhelmed by cute powders like the new MAC Beth Ditto Powder to the People, polka dots, ahhhhh!
Sometimes it’s tough resisting but in this case, you probably won’t need to dish out $38.
I wanna say it really was Love at First Blush when it comes to Soap & Glory’s new Multi-Shade Shimmer Powder and Blush. But ado, it didn’t work for me. And what a terrible shame because it’s really quite pretty.
I’ve been reviewing Soap & Glory’s Cosmetics the last few days because I was kinda hopeful that they might pop up this Summer at Sephora finally. It’s been a few months since the original launch in the UK so I do wonder if at some point we’ll finally see them here. I’m dying to try the lipsticks but not quite ready to commit without seeing them in person.
Let’s take a peek at Soap & Glory Love at First Blush and see if you like it more than I did.
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Cheek Glow in Gold is one of two new shades of highlighting powder available with the new Bobbi Brown Miami Summer 2012 Collection.
Scratch that…it’s not technically powder.
Beautiful little YBF Luminous Love Illuminating Creme I really don’t need you because my stash already contains a rather obscene amount of highlighters I’m not using but how can I possibly resist you?
