Chanel's Routes des Indes de Chanel ($80) from the Bombay Express de Chanel Collection for Summer 2012 is a stunner. It's much nicer than many of the other Chanel gold highlighters I've purchased in recent years.
This golden powder highlights cheekbones and eyelids with an iridescent touch. An embossed motif recreates the brocade pattern from an Indian-inspired collection created by Gabrielle Chanel in the 1960s. It comes with its own brush, but you will get a better application with your own. Of course, the brush has its own little velveteen pouch.
This has been a difficult feature to post, but I really wanted to show you Route des Indes. Now, I'd love to go over and help restore power to Verizon. I'll write up my adventures as soon as I get my Internet connection back.
