Fall Favourites: Chanel Lumières d'Artifices Beiges Illuminating Powder with Shimmer

Hello everyone! How is your Saturday so far? We are now working hard on the weekend for packing in order to move house, and we discovered how many useless things we have. It's so crazy.
Anyways, today I want to share with you one of my favourites of this fall: Chanel's Lumières d'Artifices Beiges. You've probably seen this a lot, but I have to tell you I absolutely adore this. It's the most subtle highlighter I have, but it is the one I prefer for a perfect finish to my skin. This is the kind of makeup that will make you glow without noticing you have makeup. So if you're on the mood for a shimmer-packed look (I am sometimes) this is not the right stuff.

I've intended to show you this a while ago, but I haven't got the opportunity yet to do proper swatches. The sun is slippery, by the time I get the camera and everything set, it's already gone. I hate to be running after the sun. It is really a pity. I know everyone is already raving Chanel's Holiday Collection, but as I'm probably not getting anything of it  (ok, maybe the polish) I decided  to show you this now, before it is definitely gone.

I know "Beige" it's not quite appealing for a name, but it is totally misleading!  This Highlighter is gorgeousness, so if you have the chance try it.

It is a little pricey, but I suspect this will last very long, since it has 18g of product (for instance, a Too Faced bronzer has 9g so this is double). I'm trying to reserve this for special makeup looks, but this is so suitable for everyday wear. I'm so happy my husband got it for me!!

Do you wear highlighters on everyday basis? Which are your favourites?

  1. Looks great! I`m thinking of buying the same. Planning to visit the shop and try it on my face)

    1. Hi Elena! I'm sure you won't regret it, it is a subtle luminizer that can be used everyday.

  2. Moving is crazy! I mean all the stuff I realized I got when I moved in to my boyfriend, I felt like a squirrel that had collected stuff for a life time. My boyfriend commented that all stuff was really small except my clothing. Small stuff for him is nail polish, make up, jewelery etc.. ;) Not really the truth, more him generalizing and joking.
    And about the highlighter, I must confess, I never use it! I use all other makeup products but never highlighter. I guess that I think that the rest is enough. At some party I've used it though for a long time ago.

    1. Hi Gelic! I never used highlighter before either! It seems since I hit my thirties I was needing some help to my "natural glow" lol.
      Moving has good and bad. And we have so much furniture as well!

  3. It looks great, :D
    I hate chasing after the sun aswell!

    1. Hi Arletta, thanks for reading!

  4. Gorgeous highlighter!
