At first glance this may seem like another one of those "incredibly beautiful collector pieces" that are wonderfull to look at but confusing & difficult to use! I have many of those - things that were just too pretty to pass up, exciting to own & display but ultimately bound to end up collecting dust, crumbling and being forgotten in a random vanity drawer :( Well I was determined to stop this cycle of collecting and accumulating pretty things, spending a fortune on products that i simply cant use and figuring out a way to get the most of my rather large stash of "dust collectors"
Chantecaille is a wonderful brand and i own a lot of their stuff that i use on a daily basis. The quality is impecable, the ingredients are great, the attention to detail is amazing but most importantly their brand philosophy is something i can get behind. Which is probably why i have so many pretties from them lol
The La Baleine Blanche compact is meant to be used for facial highlighting although the 4 shades can also be used individually as well (eyeshadow?). The colours are pearly matte white, soft metallic gold, champaigne taupe and golden light brown - all of which combine together easily with any blush or powder brush. On cheeks it imparts a luminous glowy dewy sheen but also appears natural & matte too, which is something i didnt think was possible. The texture is so creamy and luxurious that it glides on so effortlessly that its almost goof-proof! Its become one of my favourite highlighters and i am so glad that i finally mustered the courage to stop admiring it and acctually start using it. And its still beautiful to look at, both in the mirror and the compact itself!
