Les Pétales de Rose's chic wave packaging was inspired by the iconic jewelry designs of the 1970’s. I can't see that, but I do see how the compact will offer versatility. You can use it to highlight the frame of the face or eyes or over Cheek Shades to offer an added glow. You can use the powder lightly all over the face. Wherever or however you use finishing powders, you can use Les Pétales de Rose.
I wanted swatch photos so badly that I set out after work looking for tiny patches of sun where I might take photos before the sun set. I found one up the street, but the setting sun affected the photos adversely. I did pop on my flash and got one photo that adequately represents the color.
I swatched heavily at the top of my arm with a sponge-tipped applicator. Chantecaille tells us to apply this powder using the Chantecaille face brush, cheek brush, or Kabuki Brush. I used a kabuki brush to apply the larger swatch below. I blended all the shades from the compact's design as I swatched.
I would love to be able so show you additional swatch photos, so I will update this feature over the weekend. I know some of you were waiting to see swatches before you purchased. I hope the photo above is a help. Make sure to order from Chantecaille's Web site by November 18 to benefit Sandy's victims.
