Chanel Spring 2013 Poudre Signée de Chanel Review, Photos & Swatches

Chanel Poudre Signée de Chanel

The Chanel Printemps Précieux Collection for Spring 2013 includes the Chanel Poudre Signée de Chanel ($68 USD / $72 CAD), the exclusive creation for the Spring 2013 collection. This collection combines playful shades with natural elegance and is available now at Chanel counters!

This limited-edition illuminating powder is the signature piece of the collection; it has a stunning embossed detail on the powder, with a lightweight, finely-milled texture. The compact resembles the traditional Chanel compact, with a black case and interior mirror. The powder comes with an oversized velvet pouch, which also houses the included sponge applicator. I was pretty surprised to see a sponge applicator for such a luxurious product, but after using it… I actually think I prefer it more than a brush for this product.

The powder itself is a beautiful soft, peachy beige shimmer. It’s so finely-milled, it really just gives a glow to the skin instead of a noticeable sparkle. It blends beautifully into the complexion, so you can wear this on top of your makeup or even on bare skin.  It’s truly a gorgeous collector’s piece, but one that is of high quality and superb texture for functional use.  The hardest part is taking your first swipe at the lovely double-C design, but once you do (and  you see how flawless your complexion looks), it’s worth it.

I like to wear this powder on the tops of my cheekbones, using the sponge applicator to gently press the product where I want it. It also looks stunning with a bit down the bridge of your nose (avoid the tip of your nose so you don’t look oily) and the cupid’s bow of your top lip.  I love how the peachy-beige shade is so universal as well, and I think this product would look stunning on a wide variety of skintones.

While it does last on the skin for several hours, I did find that by the end of the day it had faded. It is quite subtle in comparison to other highlighters that I’ve tried.. but I like that, because it leaves my skin with a much more natural glow than one that looks like makeup.
