I’ve got as close in as I can to the Chanel Infiniment Illuminating Powder so you can see the incredible detail on the interlocking C’s. Bottom line is that’s it’s a very, very beautiful illuminating powder, but if all you’re after is illumination you can probably find one for a bit less than the £42 that this one will cost. However, if you’re like me and just want beautiful Chanel things to hoard away and bring out to gaze lovingly at, it’s one of their most lovely collectibles to date.
There are a couple of new blushes on the way, if the Chanel Infiniment Illuminating Powder isn’t tempting enough on its own. First, Joues Contraste in Vibration (pink) and secondly, in Golden Sun. I thought I was going to hate Golden Sun because it’s shimmery, but in fact, you’re less twinkly and more cheek bone gleamy once it’s on. It’s definitely surpassed my expectations in terms of subtle illumination, and good for any last vestiges of tan to give it a final burst of halo. Vibration is that kind of dolly pink – really pretty – and although I hate powder blushes, I found both of these very soft and easy to wear.
They’re both £31 each (and the brush won’t be your best friend – the products diffuse much better with a kabuki). Golden Sun is a limited shade and Vibration joins the Joues Contraste line-up for good.
You can find Chanel Infiniment Illuminating Powder and the new blush from 18th September (there are personalised make-overs at Chanel counters from 18th September til 9th October if you fancy them).
