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.

Chanel de Plumes from the Chanel Plumes Precieuses de Chanel will cost £47.
