The Silver Sparkle

When something sparkles it immediately grabs my attention. There is just something about shimmery, glittery things that make me want to buy it. As a kid I loved everything that had sequins and sometimes this guilty pleasure of mine pops up for anything with a sprinkle of glitter. It does not matter if this is a sparkly dress or a glittery eyeshadow; I just love it all.

Highlighters also fit into that category and they have become my new obsession. I love the way they transform your face and give you that perfect, healthy glow. Especially with the dull weather my skin is in desperate need of a shiny pick-me-up.
When I saw this beauty all over Instagram, I knew that it had to be mine; just look at it  *heart eyes emoji*.
It was love at first sight for me and this Chanel highlighter. This beauty is part of their Christmas 2014 collection called ‘Collection Plumes Précieuses de Chanel’. It was a bit of a splurge, but with some gift cards this Camélia de Plumes (€56!) was reasonably priced for a poor student like me.
I love the packaging. It feels very luxurious and every time I apply it, a smile appears on my face; that is how exciting I am about this highlighter! I think the flower design is to die for and adds to the whole Christmassy feeling. The pigmentation is amazing and the gold and silver sparkles leave the most amazing sheen. It is a cool toned shimmer, which is perfect for my pale skin. The formula of this highlighter is also very smooth and soft. It does not have a powdery finish, which I like since you do not want to see visible sparkles on your face. This highlighter is almost too pretty to apply, so I want to save it for special occasions.

I cannot really express my love for this beauty. It is the prettiest thing I have EVER seen and definitely an eye catcher in my make-up drawer. Maybe something to put on your Christmas wishlist?
