I simply cannot resist pretty peach blushes! This is a lovely pale warm peach with subtle gold shimmer. It's very similar to Chanel Reflex, but just a touch lighter. I think if you have Reflex you probably don't need this (I swiped one on each cheek and they're virtually identical), but if you're looking for a softer version of Reflex, or just want a versatile shimmery peach blush, this is it.
I'm pretty sure this is a permanent product as Pixiwoo did a look with this blush back in 2009 and it is also not marked as LE on the Chanel website.
I am NW20 and my cheeks have redness on their own so I typically don't wear blush because I'm trying to not emphasize that area. I love this blush because it adds just a little bit of a peachy glow without going overboard. I think it's lovely and I will definitely repurchase.
I am NC30, warm with yellow undertones. I love JCs, and have 9 of them including this. Espiegle looks peach in the pan, but pulled peachy pink on me, leaning slightly more towards pink. It reminds me of NARS Deep Throat, and when I swatched them side by side, they definitely look more or less the same though Espiegle is lighter and and is slightly less intense than Deep Throat. Espiegle gives me the 'glow from within' look which is typical of JCs, but somehow it is not like the usual 'glow from DEEP within' effect like my other favourite JCs. The glow I got from Espiegle is the effect one gets when using blush with a really good finely milled highlighter, i.e: really nice, but kind of superficial slightly. Lasting power is at par with the other JCs which is pretty good. To sum things up: I do like it, but I'm not overwhelmed by it. I love my other JCs better, like Orchid Rose, Reflex and Candy.
I am also really likeing this blush. It is a very pretty peachy color with a slight pink to it and some gold. I have alot of red in my cheeks and this does not accentuate the red like some peach blushes can. I agree with what another MUA said. It is a creamy peach color. And the shimmer is very slight.
I bought this for myself for the holidays but I wish I could have afforded this entire collection because it's absolutely exquisite. There are rumors that this blush is actually perm but I couldn't take any chances since I know it will sell out. This is very different from any other JC that Chanel has released in the past. It's prettier and more pigmented than the Tea Rose JC I had such high hopes for. This is a glowy, creamy peach infused with gold. I'm absolutely in love with the finish of this blush. I also need to mention that I left for vacation without my blush brush (!!!) So I'm stuck with the one that comes in the compact until I get home, but it works pretty well, surprisingly enough. MMM/NC35/oily.
This is my first Chanel blush and I'm not disappointed! It is absurdly expensive, but the color is beyond gorgeous. I had fallen in love with Chanel's Spring 2011 Collection but I was planning on forgoing this JC because it didn't look special in the pan. I tried it at the counter and my opinion changed - it gives me a youthful peachy glow that's not sparkly or glittery and somehow brightens my face.
Don't know if this is LE or not (the consensus seems to be split in the boards/blogs), but I hope Chanel keeps it around, as it's so different from their current lineup.
