My pick of the season: CAMELIA DE PLUMES

by

What could fit the holiday season better than a little glimmer and shine? 

That was exactly what I thought when I saw this years holiday make up collection by Chanel for the first time. My eyes instantly were locked on the highlighting powder, CAMÉLIA DE PLUMES, just because it is so incredibly beautiful – as in the packaging and presentation, as well was the icy, shiny effect it gives. 

Sadly it was sold out the day it was released in Japan and with trying to pick it up after work, I didn’t stand a chance compared to the people who were lining up for their share of the holiday collection even before the shops opened in the morning. But luckily I found an online shop that sold it for the original price – I saw up as 3 times the price being charged! Chanel Craze – and jumped right on it! And as soon as I had put in my order and checked back on the product page, Camélia de Plumes was sold out. Lucky! So from then on, all I had to do was wait for it to come to my house!

And it came about 2 weeks ago! I think it is always best to evaluate things after trying them out for a bit, and I can tell you, I love Camélia de Plumes so much already that I really hope Germany did get the same holiday collection, because I might want to buy a follow-up already in case I run out anytime in the future… 

The texture is very soft and incredibly fine, while still retaining a wonderful shine. The package comes with a flat definition brush, that allows to use the powder just light a contour highlighter. I like to brush a little on my cheekbones and just a tiny bit on my forehead. Also Mika pointed out that it would make a lovely eyeshadow – and it does indeed! Very snowy shimmer around the eyes, just as when the first sunlight hits glittery snow. Instant Holiday Feeling!
