Review: Las Vegas De Chanel Collection – Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powders for Eyes and Cheeks

Oh Chanel, why you have to torture me with another limited collection. My wallet was still recovering from getting the entire Knightsbridge Collection (which I will review soon, since you can still purchase it on Chanel.com), so I only picked up the Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powder and the Gold Fingers nail polish (hehe reminds me of Austin Power’s Goldmember).

The Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powder comes with the standard Chanel packaging, square shaped, black plastic case. It also came with an angled brush in a velvet pouch, which I am not sure exactly how I feel about it; since most of the time I don’t use it and I don’t quite know where to put it for storage. I guess it is useful for on-the-go if you really need to. It should be noted that there is no applicator for eyes, since Chanel does advertise it as a product for both eyes and cheeks.

The powder itself is really beautiful. However, being a crazy anal person, I don’t understand why the strips are not symmetrical. There is more of the pink shade than the brown shade. Nonetheless, the strips are wide enough to get a decent sized eye brush to pick up each of the colors.

The Lucky Stripes Iridescent Powder is very finely milled and has shimmer not glitter. It applies smoothly on the skin and the pigmentation is good, except for the gold shade. With the stripes mixed together you get a pretty sheen; it does not lean on the gold side surprisingly. There is no noticeable fragrance with the powder; unlike the Joues Contraste Powder Blushes (I actually love the rose smell).

Product Info:

$95 @ Chanel.com or Vegas Boutique in Borgata

It is a limited edition product.

15g NET WT 0.53oz

Pro:

  • Finely Milled
  • Multipurpose

Con:

  • REALLY Expensive
  • Colors are dupable

Bottom line: If you are a Chanel fiend like me, with money to spend, I would get this product. Otherwise, I would definitely skip it because of the super marked up price and the fact it is not the most unique product from Chanel.

    Beautiful powder, but disappointing pigmentation! Look forward to more reviews!

      The pigmentation was good. The gold one I had to go over a bunch of times. It was hard to capture on film since my arm is darker than my face lol…. not to worry more reviews coming up…. next is bobbi brown spring picks, tom ford’s eyeshadows and YSL stain gloss 🙂
