This vacation Chanel launched beautiful Oversize Illuminating Face Powders ($95 every) of their Les Symboles de Chanel assortment. There are 5 beautiful embossed patterns to select from and every image has a particular which means for Chanel: The Lion (power), The Comet (luck), The Camellia (concord), The Chain (type) and The Pearls (radiance).
There are three colours to select from every design: Pearly White, Heat Gold and Treasured Coral.
Pearly White is a glittery glowing white. It has extra glitter than most Chanel highlighters. Enjoyable for vacation events however VERY glittery. To my eye seems almost an identical to the glowing backside half of the Duo Lumiere from the Holiday 2023 collection. If I needed to decide one I might go for the Duo Lumiere as a result of the colour within the prime portion is SO beautiful.

Warm Gold is the right shade of heat gold. A little bit peachy, tiny bits of microsparkles (however not full on glitter) make this stunning. There’s one other highlighter within the Poudre Lumiere formula known as Heat Gold however the Heat Gold shade in Les Symboles de Chanel is completely different. Noticeably completely different to justify proudly owning each for my part. The vacation model is deeper, extra golden and extra sparkly/luminous.

Precious Coral is my favourite. It’s a wonderful mild coral with essentially the most excellent gentle sheen to it. I need this shade in actually all the things – tops, baggage, lipstick, gloss, eyeshadow and so on. I believe it’s the prettiest shade I believe I’ve ever seen.
Total stunning and luminous. I acquire Chanel highlighters so these had been a should for me. I might have beloved if the Pearly White had been extra of a easy shimmer vs a glitter, however I nonetheless assume it’s enjoyable for vacation. My favourite is the Treasured Coral though the Heat Gold is a really fairly flattering gold shade. It’s laborious to choose a favourite sample. I believe they’re all stunning however I believe the Comet and Camellia are my favorites.
