Chantecaille’s holiday color collection is surprisingly… well edited this year. It includes just three limited edition rose compacts: a highlighter, translucent finishing powder, and lipgloss. Each one is $36.
The promotional images look like gold compacts, but the three testers that appeared at my counter this past weekend were brown metal. I don’t like or dislike them; they’re just rather different from what I was expecting. [EDIT: it seems the testers are packaged differently from the product for sale.] Lumiere de Rose is a pink highlighter — more subtle than it looks in this swatch. As always, I swatched heavily to convey the color. Voile de Rose is a translucent finishing powder (also swatched here heavily), and I believe it’s the same product as appeared in the Butterfly collection a few years ago (Les Papillons Poudre Delicate in Veil).
I think Reve de Rose is the winner of the trio; it’s a really gorgeous rose lipgloss that will be amazing on the majority of the lipgloss-wearing population. I know, it’s in a pot. But the color might just be worth it. If you like this one, don’t wait to buy it.
