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.
