I know some people hate them and think the hype is all about the name alone, but I truly ♥ them. Here's why:The texture: Itís so finely milled (finest powder blushes Iíve ever come across) itís creamy smooth and melts on your skin. The texture is so fine the blush will never look chalky on the skin.The shades: While I canít say that they are universally flattering or highly pigmented like NARS (or MAC or Bobbi Brown) can be (they donít show on darker skins) light to medium skins will find that they give such a natural glow. And although sparkly in the pan, these sparkles don't show on the skin; neither do they accentuate my pores or add glitter on my cheeks; if anything the sparkles only help to subtly contour the cheekbones.The security that they won't break me out: I have used them over moisturiser alone, over foundation + primer and powder, over powder alone etc and never once has my skin reacted negatively.The scent: I know some people dislike scented products, but this is what dots the i on the word luxurious for this blush. I like applying (and reapplying!) the blush just so I could enjoy the scent.All that said the brush that comes with them is utterly useless, and I could do without the not-so-velvety velvet pouch, but I know others who love that the brush makes the compact very travel-friendly (it does work if you are desperate) and the pouch does help with keeping the compact scratch-free (which you do want to do, considering how much money you are parting for a pan of JC). Bottomline: More JC's will find their way in my blush collection soon!Oh and they last considerably long on my cheeks, which is pretty amazing seeing that it's hot and humid where I am, and nothing lasts all day without touchups.

This is a very natural, rose shade blush. It goes on matte and I apply with a big powder brush on the upper cheek bone area. I use very little since I want a natural flushed look. It's long lasting and no break outs.

Got this in 'rose dust' because I'm anal about blushers having shimmer and being overly sparkly but this was a pleasant surprise coming from Chanel as their other colours are just loaded with sparkles. Effective in delivering a soft, natural blush effect. Added incentive is its soft fragrance. Minus as it is expensive for a blush compared to other brands such as Dior or Shu. Also, the first time I used it with sephora's blush brush it was EXTREMELY powdery as if it was not pressed properly but after 3 usage it doens't flake off anymore. Odd. Overall a great product because of the packaging and since I'm a sucker for nice-smelling items (:

I am reviewing In love JC. As with all of the JC's this is no exception to being fab! On me it's a coral-pink color. It just melts into my skin with little effort. It has just a hint of shimmer and smells wonderful. You either hate or love the smell, and I find that it varies in degrees of being to strong with the different colors. I don't use this everyday, but I do use it a lot in the summer when I tend to be a lot more tan.

I adore this blusher in 'desert' for a shimmery, elegant evening look. It is a dark pinky bronze that is difficult to describe but looks naturally contouring on my fair complexion. You have to be careful not to overdo it but this is my HG blusher for the evening when I want a subtle but sophisticated pinky bronze glow. Simply stunning! BTW I am dark brunette with dark blue eyes, fair skin which tans and use Bourgois blush in sienne for the day (Bourgois is made by Chanel!)

I'm very fair, and such a small amount of this blush makes such a difference for me. I've only just started on my first one ever, so I wonder how long it will last. I think for a long time. I bought the Chanel blush brush too. The results I see with this product truly amaze me.

This review is for Chanel Joues Contraste Blush in Rose Petale. Beautiful color, works well with a fair - fair/medium skintone that is on the warm side. Really brightens.

even tho it's quite expensive... it's worth it when you find your perfect shade of color... however i wish it would stay on longer through out the day. waterproof blush would be nice.

In my opinion, Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blushes are the best blushes. The texture is soft and velvety and they have great pigmentation. The staying power is excellent and they have a a lovely, fresh, rose petal scent. They come in an assortment of beautiful, skintone-flattering colors, and each compact contains a large amount of product!

little disappointed by these...i am genuinely surprised by all the positive comments here! the smell doesn't bother me so much, but these just don't go on well. they look blotchy and DIRTY. plus, they have no staying power. clinique stays on me all day, and so does bobbi brown but when i use chanel blushes they are gone by lunchtime. such a disappointment for something so pricey.for the record, i have this in turbulent, mocha, and fantasia. all gorgeous colors but just not what i am looking for. i don't know why i kept purchasing them, i think it was just the name and i kept hoping i would change my mind about how i felt about them. no chance!
