Chantecaille Les Pétales de Rose Illuminating Face Powder

Everyone that knows me recognizes and accepts me for the highlighter lover that I am.  When I learned that Chantecaille was releasing a new Illuminating Face Powder as part of their Holiday 2012 Collection, I decided to give it a try, especially since I have never tried any of their highlighters.


Chantecaille's Les Pétales de Rose (12 g/$74) is absolutely lovely.  It reminds me of a softer version of Guerlain's Cruel Gardenia Météorites Illuminating Iridescent Powder which launched in January 2012.  Cruel Gardenia Météorites had a lower price point but also offered less product (9 g/$67).  The packaging reads, "Chantecaille's Rose Petal Powder is a festive kaleidoscope of sheer colors pressed together to impart the most flattering glow."


The Saks Fifth Avenue website reads: "Inspired by the soft color and texture of crushed rose petals, Chantecaille has created a limited-edition highlighting powder that will brighten up your powder room as well as your face. Made in Italy."

Overall rating:  Booyah!  This highlighter is great for daytime as it is not iridescent so the effect is subtle .  I love the fact that the compact is small and sleek so it's easy to carry around for day into night touchups.

Have you tried any Chantecaille products?  Would love to hear your thoughts?  Are you a highlighter junkie like me?  Are there any other highlighter products you'd like to see featured in a post?
