It's limited edition, so I'd better snap this up before it's gone! I like how it is rosy gold. Not too yellow, not too frosty. Warm, but on the pink side of things. light enough to be a true highlighter. "Wet " finish with no chunky glitter

Loved the Camilla de plumes is this in any way in comparison?
Christina D on Nov 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Our Le Signe Du Lion Illuminating Powder is a soft, micro-fine formula dusts onto skin for a smooth, radiant finish which is similar to the texture of our previous Camellia De Plumes Highlighter. I would suggest trying shade Or Blanc as this will provide you with the closest match to our previous offering.
Does LE SIGNE DU LION come with a mirror?
Maria M on Sep 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The versatile Illuminating Powder, Le Signe Du Lion comes complete with a mirror and brush inside of the compact.
Can this be used as a blush?
Jacqueline C on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I personally love using this stunning Illuminating Powder over blush or on it's own as a blush replacement in shade Or Rose for a soft rose glowing shimmer.
I've often read that illuminating makeup is not advised for mature skin because it may highlight wrinkles. What's your opinion and do you have alternative suggestions?
Carol B on Mar 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Le Signe Du Lion Illuminating Powder emphasizes your facial features where ever applied. It allows your face's natural features to shine through. We recommend applyingLe Signe Du Lion with a very light hand to be sure that you achieve a gorgeous glow to the skin.

We also recommend that you visit a Chanel Beauty Counter to have a skilled Beauty Analyste assist you with achieving a gorgeous look with

Beautiful highlighters (I bought two: the rose and the white).. They accent my cheekbones, browbones, without glare or looking as though I have used anything besides naturally radiant skin.

just beautiful! I kind of expected it to be a bit more pink, but it is more on the gold side. it is a very soft gold glow with a touch of rose. goes on easily and gives a wonderful illumination to the highlighted areas.
