Well, first of all let me explain that this really isn’t a review as I daren’t put my fingers anywhere near this delectable limited edition compact from Chanel, so it is really just a blog post so we can ooh and ahh over its beauty. Chanel Dentelle Précieuse Illuminating Powder is the newest limited edition offering and when I say limited, I mean it is harder to get hold of than the sun. It is that limited that the only stockists are exclusively in Chanel at Covent Garden, Chanel Boutiques, House of Fraser Glasgow, Fenwicks Newcastle, Selfridges Manchester Exchange and Selfridges London. Selfridges Manchester had three left when I went in store, so it was inevitable that I would be getting one. I sent a little picture to my gorgeous friend Sarah from andbeautyorsomething and I think she spent the evening trying to track it down but to no avail.
The Chanel Dentelle Précieuse Illuminating Powder is a blend of pink, beige and bronze underneath the most gorgeous intricate lace design. I actually cannot bear the thought of rubbing the design off to get to the powder however when I tried it in store, I can honestly say tha it is the most delightful summery glow that will highlight and sculpt your face to perfection, if you dare to touch it that is!
Housed in a velvet pouch with a Chanel angled sable haired brush, this truly is a beautiful item to add to your collection. I think when I do get round to using it, I will be a bit disappointed with the fact that the brush doesn’t sit inside the compact, like my Chanel Le Beige compact. The polished black case adds to the luxury and the femininity of the Chanel Dentelle Précieuse Illuminating Powder.
So, lets just swoon over the gorgeousness and be in awe of its beauty.
It was quite pricey, the equivalent of two weeks food shopping for me, hence why I’ starving right now. However if you can get hold of one, £46 is a small price to pay.
