Chanel Le Signe du Lion Illuminating Powder Or Blanc

December 21, 2017

This Holiday 2017, Chanel has skipped the tradition of releasing a decorated eyeshadow but has kept up the practice of giving fans a collectible in the form of a highlighter.  This year has been all about celebrating the persona of Gabrielle Chanel, and we end the year with a big bang.

Chanel Le Signe du Lion is named after a line of haute jewelry from the house, but it also represents the star sign that Chanel was born under.  The Lion symbolises audacity, intuitiveness, passion and radiance… all the qualities of the Chanel woman.

There are 2 shade versions that were released, but only 1 has been released in Singapore so far.  The one shown above is Or Blanc; whilst Or Rose will only be available in January 2018.

The powder is fairly dense, but soft to the touch and so finely milled it almost feels creamy when swatched.  Chanel Le Signe du Lion is beautifully pigmented, and gives a lovely luminous sheen to the skin at the lightest sweep of my brush.  It can be built up further or sheered out easily as needed.

Or Blanc looked like a platinum highlighter in the palette, but it actually swatches out to be a pale gold with a cool undertone and a bright luminous sheen.  I was worried it might be too cool for my skin tone, but it actually works out beautifully and might be one of my favorite highlighters to date!

Chanel Le Signe du Lion Or Blanc Illuminating Powder is limited edition of course, and if you missed it, do not forget to get on the list for Or Rose asap!

    This looks pretty and cool gold is a perfect highlighter shade for me. I have one from Nabla and it’s pretty much the only one that gets real use.

  2. It looks a lot like that “ice crystal” from 2014 (15?). In the event that you should get hold of an extra, though I suppose they’ll sell out quickly, I have a home for the rose gold one here

      I’m not sure which one is “ice crystal”?? You mean the camellia one? I’m still waiting for Or Rose… would you like me to get one for you too?

      • That’s it – camellia de plumes. I think it looks more like a snowflake than a flower 😅 And was in a bit of a hurry so didn’t think to google it. If the opportunity arises, I’d love it if you could – as a Leo it’s too perfect not to collect 😂
