I’m ending the week with this glorious blush from 2006 – I can’t believe that Friday has rolled around again. The Lumieres Magiques blush has reminded me about a detail that Chanel used to do quite frequently but I don’t think they do any more which is to put a hint of what’s within on the exterior of the box with colour down the sides. There was gold and silver side detailing on the sequin palette for example, and on the side of this box is a strip of pink and strip of orange.

So, as you can see, it’s a trio of blush colours – baked by the looks of them – in rose, coral and gold-hit baby pink. I was hoping it might smell a bit rosy but in fact, it has very little scent – just a waft of sweetness. The coral colour is an almost-red orange shade and the description on the box calls it a Sculpting Face Illuminator.

The little brush that sits in a perfectly sized slot inside the palette is narrow with a chunky handle so you can either pick out your preferred colour or swirl it around. All the shades are quite sparkly with tiny twinkles. I’ve seen it on resales sites for around the $45 mark although I don’t know how much it cost in 2006. This could be released today and still be relevant and current – it’s a timeless piece of make up.
