I was tipped off about this product yesterday: it hasn’t been promoted by Chanel for a very long time (it came out pre-2008 but was reformulated in that year) and yet is still one of the most requested products by make-up artists to use on their models. Which tells me that it’s something special! I’ve given it a go and yes indeed, it does ‘uplight’ the skin. It’s designed to be worn under foundation and makes my skin feel very moisturised as well, but I think you’d already need to have completely flawless skin to wear it alone.
I like the idea of mixing it into whatever foundation I’m wearing. I would have to point out though that this is a product for the complexion obsessed. In reality I am never quite sure if I can really see the ‘glow’ from most of these luminosity chasers, but I can with Blanc de Chanel and for that reason it’s worth having in your make-up stash.
Looking around for a link, it seems to be £1 more in most of the department stores, at £31, but it’s £1 cheaper at Boots, HERE.

That looks kinda interesting…I’m like you I don’t think many of the illuminators actually do so with any visbility. I’ve heard the MAC one is good (strobe or somethin) and the hourglass ambient lighting powder but adding to foundation seems like a great idea. Will check it out next time I’m near a Chanel counter – it’s not bad price for them.
Interestingly, I was writing about this today!
I love mixing it to other foundations (a beloved combination is use it equal parts with Bourjois Healthy mix) and I get the best of two products.
