If you didn’t notice, we gained a whole extra day today. Since February 29th comes round so rarely, I thought I’d show you something that comes around just as rarely, if not even more so! This is the Chanel Perles et Fantaisies Highlighter, a beautifully embossed illuminating powder that beauty buffs amongst you will have seen make its round on social media.
The Perles et Fantaisies highlighter powder is part of the Les Sautoirs de Coco, a makeup line which is an extension to the le Blanc collection. le Blanc, for those of us who find it just Greek, is French for “white” and thus, the whitening collection. Most brands these days have one, and they used to be exclusive only to Asia, but I’ve seen this powder pop up everywhere else, so I think it’s a worldwide release this time.
What really captures the eye is the intricacy of the details embossed on the powder. As the name suggests, the white and pink powder is embossed with the suggestion of a multi-layered string of pearls, with the Chanel logo. If I’m not mistaken, you could likely find something similar in the Chanel accessories collection. I haven’t looked – too dangerous you know. Credit cards might be hurt in the process LOL! 😀
To be perfectly honest, I’m not sold on the design. I might be one of the rare few who aren’t, because I know of many people who really like it. But like an eyeshadow embossed with sequins from years and years ago, I find it gives me the goosebumps 😛 But goosebumps aside, is this something you’d like to have in your collection? 🙂
