So, this is the stand out piece from the Chanel Plumes Precieuses de Chanel collection, hitting stores in November. It’s the Camelia de Plumes Highlighting Powder in Platine, a mercurial colour that changes with the light. I’m splitting up my picture heavy review of this collection into several posts. Initially, when I opened up Camelia de Plumes, I thought it was silver.
But in this shot, taken in direct sunlight, it’s more of a gold! I think in reality it would fall into the ‘champagne gold’ category – silver with a shot of warmth. Either way, it’s such an intricate design.
I know it’s blurry, but you can see from this shot in the sunlight that there is a mixture of colours and also that it’s super-shimmery!
Personally, I don’t really use highlighters, but there’s a possible exception here if I can bear to put a brush through it! I think one way of using it would be to use a kabuki to pick up the shimmer and then brush through the ends of your hair – that sounds like it could be very pretty indeed. I think the days of chucking glitter all over your chest are over, but if you have something strapless, Camelia de Plumes would be wonderful just kissing the shoulders.
