Chanel Limited Edition Route Des Indes Illuminating Powder with Shimmer from the Bombay Express Collection: Photos, Swatches and Review
I’ve been drooling over the Bombay Express De Chanel Collection since I first saw the pictures on Make Up For All’s blog site. I love make up, but I am in love with highlighters and this one is no exception. I love the design and it is etched in enough that it would take a while to wear down. This highlighter has a glittery overspray that is a little much but once it’s brushed away the powder that is left is soft and the shimmer is more refined. The color is a pale gold, not as bold as Guerlain’s Sun In The City Golden Glimmer powder but not as pale as MAC’s Whisper of Gilt. I took comparison photos and you can find those below. The beveled sculpting brush that comes with the highlighter is soft and I think it works well to apply the powder. This is a must have in my opinion, if you can only get one piece from the collection this is the one I would recommend.
Here is what Chanel’s website say’s about the product:
This precious golden powder highlights cheekbones and eyelids with an iridescent touch. An embossed motif recreates the brocade pattern from an Indian-inspired collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in the 1960s.
For precise application, a beveled sculpting brush accompanies the powder. Part of the limited-edition BOMBAY EXPRESS DE CHANEL Collection.
