oh my God.. I had forgotten to write a review on this gorgeousssss blush. When I bought the first one, I saw the beauty of it.
Soft, peachy with a bit of pink and a special glow that makes a woman like prepubescent... like when we all had beautiful skin, no lines and just a beautiful naturally soft flush.
I bought my back up last year sometime in a DF somewhere... and am I glad I did. From all accounts, this shade is discontinued and the replacement was last year's Malice or Frivole (not sure which exactly) which were far too harsh for me and not at all what I wanted for a daytime look. I can use Malice at night -- when it's really dark.
if if if you find one, buy it, you won't regret this gorgeous color.
So So So Sad This Is Discontinued
I must have gotten mine right before they discontinued it, as it is no longer available on the Chanel website. I hope it's still available Chanel counters, but I know it's not online.
For anyone with a beige/peach skin tone, this blush is not just a must have, it's downright "live changing" in terms of make up. You can wear this blush alone, high on the cheekbones, with just a dab of lipstick and people will stop you on the STREET and while out and about and marvel at how this blush is actually "reflecting off the angles of your face!"
It doesn't look extraordinary in the pan, just a regular peach blush. But when applied, tastefully, it takes on a life of it's own.
The first TWO strangers that exclaimed the "reflective nature" of this blush surprised me, that's when I realized that this is not just your average, Chanel blush. The others who said the same thing just made me smile a silent thanks to God for making Chanel. Nobody ever says that when I'm not wearing this stuff - only when I am! I just smile now and accept the compliment on behalf of "Chanel." :)
So, it's not available online and I hope they will reconsider this. I got online to buy a few more of these wonderful blushes when I realized it's not being sold, anymore. :( I haven't tried the other colors yet, I'm too busy holding on to the last traces of this stuff.
If you can find it, BUY IT!! It's more than worth the $40-$50
Today I realized how perfect this is. My face looked tired and dull. With this on it transformed into fresh, young, glowing from within. Light hand, I use it on the apples of my cheeks. Me but way better. Every woman my age should try this one. Will buy again without thinking.
Gorgeousness in a compact. Buildabpe color that does wonders for my nw25 skin. Looks fab with Bronzer and I love the fragrance.
This is the first Chanel makeup that I own. The colour is a very natural, peachy shade with fine shimmers.
The packaging I did not like as much. Did not like that the compact only opens 90 degrees. I prefer compacts that open 180 degrees, like most other compacts are. The tiny brush that i came in is quite redundant and keeps falling out of the compact. If i remove the brush, the compact will have an empty space where the brush should be. The compact also feels light, feels a little bit cheap. If compared with Burberry's compact, which feels solid and expensive, Chanel's is alittle disappointing.
I feel its not worth the price tag it came with, and i'm not impressed with the product.
i love this bludh. such a pretty pink peachy colour. its a natural colour for my nc30 skin :)
the shimmer isnt so bad.
the price though is... oh my god. lol.
but if i have that kind of money, i would get it again :)
A very cute peachy pink. Has some golden shimmer specks, but it's not too bad. It has sparked my interest in peachy lipsticks, which it looks adorable with.
Lovely blush, like all Chanel's, excellent packaging and that scent of Rose's is just beautiful. Love this colour but probably wouldn't purchase again due to the price, I will leave it for special occasions!
lighter than Mac nc15, asian
This is probably my all time favorite blush!!! It is a peachy blush, that does not have a whole lot of pink in it. There are fine shimmers, but nothing overwhelming. Most peachy/orange blushes lean to pink or to orangey, this one is PERFECT! It has good pigment as well.
I resisted this for ages because I was a bit put off by the bright coral that it appears to be in the pan. However, as soon as the SA tried it on me, I knew I had to have it. On my NC42 skin it is a very natural, 'me-but-better' shade and I think it would suit pretty much anyone who has yellow undertones as I think that would soften the orange I in this blush.
As the other reviewers have said, it's a lovely coral leaning peach, a perfect mix of orange and pink with a subtle shimmer that makes the cheeks glow as if lit from within. I don't need highlighter when wearing this due to the very pretty glow that it gives me. I apply with the Real Techniques blush brush - because I have darker skin, I'm fairly generous with the application but this blush is very buildable.
Not sure I'm a huge fan of the rose scent but it wears off fairly quickly and is unnoticeable after minutes on the skin. I normally take off a lippy for expense but this is worth every cent so I'm giving it full marks. Would definitely repurchase.
