I can’t explain to you how gorgeous, stunning this looks in real life, but best you believe that if you ever spot one at a Chanel beauty counter, your breath may hitch, your heart skip a beat and your saliva drooling down your chin. It really did take my breath away.
This is my first time ever purchasing a limited edition illuminating powder, but I bet the previous years were just as if not breathtaking as well. What I most love about this aside from the detail embossing of the famous Chanel camelia, is the shade that as I have been told by my SA–a flattering shade that would suit a lot more skin complexions. I am all for inclusivity for beauty so I was excited to hear this was one of its first kind to be suitable for more skin tones.

The illuminating powder can be used on the entire face and body with the mini kabuki brush that it comes with to create a halo of light, or apply a small amount wherever you want to add a touch of radiance.
