This is an amazing color on my hand but way too shiny and orange on my face (I have baked version). I want to love this blush and I keep trying it with different looks but somehow it always makes me look like I wear makeup.
I generally adore chanel blushes and they work on me pretty well but this one seems to leave so much shine on my cheeks that it gets too obvious.
I can assume that it is just not my color as the other chanel blushes with lots of shimmer (i.e. Turbulent) work very well.
I needed a blush that I could wear with any makeup look that I choose. And I found this. It is a pale peach color, it is impossible to make yourself look like a clown with it. I swirl my brush (the Dior blush brush is the best!) in it really hard and then swipe on the apples, and it looks like my natural flush. I said I will repurchase just because that's the only blush that I need, and if it were the only blush I had I'd be completely fine and happy but I don't believe I will ever ever finish it. Since it's baked, it does not seem that I used any even though I've used it every day for a month. And it lasts the entire day unless it's really really hot outside, then you'll probably have to re-apply it in the evening. Overall, a winner for me and I'm glad I decided to buy it
Update: With long-term use I found that the size of this blush is not very user-friendly. It's too small and my wide blush brush does not pick it up evenly which makes application harder. Maybe I should try using a more narrow brush with it
Espiègle is a lovely pale peach shade with a barely-there hint of pink and subtle shimmer -- it adds a light, peachy glow to my complexion, and even though I normally go for cooler shades, it is lovely. Even though it's pale, it is rather heavily pigmented, and the color can be built up easily.
For reference: NW5-10, NARS Siberia.
My favorite blush!
Natural and very flattering for my skin tone (I am b20 Vitalumiere Aqua). It can be build up nicely even I think the less is better. It gives nice healthy glow, but not too shiny.
Spectacular blush! It is a soft peach/coral blush perfect for my NC15/NC20 complexion. Unlike other Chanel JCs this is easy to apply (baked blush is usually not my favourite as it can be hard to get the right amount of product on the brish). It has a slight shimmer (no spakle) that adds a healthy glow to my complexion. The packaging is amazing and classy. Highly recommended if you are warm toned and very pale. Good staying power.
**EDIT: and it happened again. After several weeks of heavy use the product became rock solid and I have literally to scratch it to get any payoff. This is really annoying as the colour is gorgeous. i have now switched to Diorblush in Passion Fruit: great colour and great texture that does not become like a rock (and it is even cheaper than Chanel!)
The Jous Contraste blushes are such objects of beauty but this particular blush is simply amazing!
I own a couple of Chanel's blushes but this one is certainly my favourite, For your reference, I am an oilve skinned B40 in Matt Lumiere and Vitalumiere Aqua Chinese girl and this gorgeous peach blush sits beautifully on my non-existent cheek bones.
The beauty about this blush is that you can be very heavy handed with the product which I quite like as you don't get the much dreaded clown effect.
Also, I've discovered after many blush purchase later, that an olive toned gal like me suits peach/coral blushes better and this is definitely my HG blush :) Perfect for everyday wear!
A must buy!
Glowy & peachy, this is a must have for all warm toned ladies who have light-medium skintone. I was surprised that it showed up on me at all but it did and i'm so pleased with it!!
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! <3 continued >>
This was my first Chanel purchase and I took a leap of faith because I bought this sight unseen.
I've come to the conclusion that I just can't wear pink or tawny blushes because they just end up looking muddy on me. I have redness on my cheeks that is excentuated when I wear pink blush, so i've been leaning towards more natural/glowy blushes. This one is exactly that! It gives you that 'something' that enhances your face but doesn't overpower it.
The only reason I'm giving this a 4 instead of a 5 is because the blush is highly fragranced, which I find weird. To add to that, its rose scented, which is one of my least favorite smells of all time. You can smell roses for a bit after you put this on, but the scent does eventually fade away. Although its fragranced, it hasn't irritated my skin.
As perfect and gorgeous as everyone else has mentioned. It truly seems like a universally flattering color for any skin tone. I have tons of blushes, a good majority of them Chanel, and this has easily become one of my most reached for shades. I'm very pale and I love how subtle and glowing this is on me. It's the peachy-pink color I had always hoped Nars Orgasm would be.
This has a brightening effect and is so natural looking. Very lit-from-within. Looks beautiful when paired with a warm, delicate highlighter.
Even though Chanel blushes are slightly perfumed, I never have a problem with irritation or breakouts. My skin is very sensitive and these always work well on me. So finely milled and silky so it goes on evenly and smoothly. Superior quality in every way. Love it!
The best ever peachy color for my NC10-15 skintone. It looks super natural and cute in picture and in person. I will say the lasting power is just second to Nars, but a lot more natural then Nars. I don't like it is baked because it is so hard to pick up the color since most of my makeup brushes are natural bristles. I think they will need some stiffer makeup brush to use with.
