Duo de Camelias
Chanel Duo de Camelias Illuminating Powder Duo is a new, limited edition duo for Black Friday (though these exclusives are typically available until they sell through). It includes a warmer gold and paler, white gold both with more sparkling, lightly metallic finishes. Both shades were very pigmented, while the texture was smooth, blendable, and easy to work with (no powderiness!).
Duo de Camelias (Left)
Duo de Camelias (Left) is a light gold with moderate, warm yellow undertones and a sparkling, lightly metallic finish. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out easily. The texture was smooth to the touch without any powderiness, and while it felt a bit more firmly pressed into the pan, it wasn’t stiff to work with; I had no trouble picking up product with a tapered highlighting brush. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.
Duo de Camelias (Right)
Duo de Camelias (Right) is a pale, white gold with moderate, warm undertones and a sparkling, silver and gold finish. The texture was smooth to the touch, more firmly pressed into the pan but not stiff or difficult to pick up, and while it was a more intense highlighter, it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It had rich color coverage that applied evenly and blended out nicely on my skin. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.
