The Chanel Perles de Lumière Illuminating Blush powder is the star of the new Chanel Le Blanc 2021 Spring Collection. It is the only piece I managed to get from the collection, and I am so happy I got my hands on it.
The highlighting blush is embossed with a pearl design, inspired by the pearls Gabrielle Chanel wore to illuminate her face. It comes in the iconic Chanel compact with a domed Chanel brush.
The luminous powder can double as a highlighter and a blush, however, I do think this depends on your skin tone. Personally, it works better as a highlighter on me, it adds a gorgeous luminous champagne sheen which looks smooth and soft when applied.
It is buildable and you can also apply it wet if you want a little extra glow. You can also use it as an eyeshadow for give a luminous effect on the lids as well as your shoulders and décolleté. I haven’t personally used the brush which comes with it and opted for a denser brush.
Overall, this highlighting blush is a beautiful piece to add to your makeup collection, especially for the Chanel collectors. It is a universal shade and it will work for each skin tone as a highlighter.
