They say: A limited-edition highlighting powder from the Chanel Holiday 2022 Collection, titled Damander La Lune. The oversized compact features the brand’s iconic No. 5 fragrance bottle embossed on the satin powder along with an imprint of the moon. Available in two shades: 897 Cuivre Dore, a soft gold; and 887 Or Rose, a rose-gold option.
We say: Our tester subbed this sparkling seasonal pressed powder in for her go-to highlighter and was pleased with its soft highlighting effect. Applied to the cheekbones, nose and other high points of the face, the effect was a pretty glow perfect for upcoming holiday parties.

Scandal Le Parfum
They say: An “intense” eau de parfum for those who “love a good scandal,” this fragrance features notes of jasmine, salted caramel and vanilla.
We say: Our tester found this red-bottled, amber-floral elixir was nicely balanced, being neither too sweet nor too flowery on her skin. A few spritzes yielded a soft, day-to-night fragrance that wore nicely all daylong.

Matte Bronzing Powder
They say: From the Canadian brand Nuda, this matte bronzing powder provides a “natural tan” effect. The long-wearing formula features papaya extract, mango extract and jojoba to smooth skin.
We say: Our tester found this matte bronzing powder gave her skin the perfect amount of sun-kissed glow. A small amount buffed onto skin with a fluffy bristle face brush provided a natural, airbrushed-effect tan that didn’t appear chalky or dull.
