Every once in a while a beauty product comes along that is so totally, utterly, perfectly wonderful that it actually hurts. Chanel's new Dentelle Précieuse, on sale today, is one such example.
Inspired by the French fashion house's last cruise show, the delicate compact is utterly divine in every way; the luxurious yet faint fragrance, lace detailing and the translucent finish of the powder… it is without fault.
Contrasting shades of beige, pink and bronze mix effortlessly to sculpt your cheeks with a luminous finish. Just a swipe of the lightweight powder and your skin will feel better, your jawline skillfully defined and your brow beautifully sunkissed. Wedding day confidence in a compact, if you like.
Further adding to its bridal appeal: that beautiful lace print! Gabrielle Chanel famously said lace was "one of the prettiest imitations ever made of nature's fantasies." We couldn't have put it better ourselves!
(Actually, we lied; this bridal beauty does have one fault. And that is that it is a limited-edition piece... So head to the Chanel store in Covent Garden to get yours pronto!)
