I love this blusher - I've been looking for a corally equivalent of my beloved Bourjois Lilas d'Or (a lovely pinky gold). It looks a bit odd in the case but is gorgeous on - corally with a faint shimmer of gold. I think it would work best on fair toned but warm complexions or those with some yellow. I'm Chanel B20 for reference. Thank you MUA - makeup is so expensive here in Switzerland - I nearly always check this board before treating myself and am making far fewer mistakes!

The best-est blush I've ever had, I am NW30 (NC35) at the moment and usually after fdn./concealer, the face appeared "flat". A slight sweep of this blush (or sweep like a bronzer) gives the face a more 3 dimensional appearance. No glitter, just a healthy glow, its even better a hour or two later (my cheeks are dry). The only complaint is it turned a bit "bronzier" later on, btw I don't go for a bronzer look. I will look into other colours with less orange/coral.

When the makeup artist at Chanel showed this too me I was slightly horrified at how bright it looked. In the pan it's a bright reddish-coral with lots of gold shimmer. However, I gamely let him put it on and I love how it looks against my skin (I wear number 40 in Chanel foundations).
It is a little redder than I usually go for but if applied with a light hand it give a reddish-peachy hue with a gorgeous sheen that reflects how finely milled this is. Not sure if we get the US or European version here in Australia but I've found the colour payoff to be very reasonable. All I have to do is lightly brush the pan with my blush brush and I get the perfect amount of colour. It's also very buildable
The compact is typical, sturdy Chanel. There's a little plastic cap that sits on top of the powder to prevent it making the compact messy. The brush is scratch and nowhere near fluffy enough but is usable if you're without a brush.
I bought this little gem for AU$77 which is very expensive but I've found it on strawberrynet for much less. I would repurchase but is going to take me ages to hit the pan.

It s powdering made the container blush dirty but it pigmented and looks glow on your face. So it s nice though :)

Unfortunately, this was LE, so I can never purchase it again unless it is repromoted. This is a gorgeous pink-coral shade with gold shimmer. More pink than coral. I love it and I wear this during every season. I am MAC C8 and this looks beautiful against my complexion. I love Chanel blushes. I also have Plum Attraction which was also LE. A beautiful medium to dark plum. Gorgeous!!!

Offensively peachy in the pan but, as with all Chanel blushes, the effect upon application is anything but harsh. Was recommended by SA as the 'go-to shade' for fairer complexions. Not sure that I would fully agree with that view, but this blush certainly has much to recommend it if you're after a peach toned face brightener for fair skin: super-finely milled; delivers a natural glow; can be layered without conflict with other blush shades. A quality product.

This is my HG coral blush. I have the European version so it has a wonderful golden sheen to it, and the orange tones work well with my tan skin. With a lighter hand it also works as a highlighter. NC44/ Nars Tahoe / Chanel Perfection Lumiere BA34 for reference.

These blushes are incredible expensive, but last a really long time. This I love! I've only bought this one time. I had this for almost two years used it every single day I put on makeup! Can't say enough good this about it.
I don't know why, but when I finished the Reflex one I bought In love to repace it. I don't like that one at all! I've had this for 3 years now, and have barely use it. I do miss the Reflex one a lot and will def. repurchase at some point!

Despite its appearance in the compact, Reflex swatches very differently on the skin. At first glance, I assumed it would be (1) very orange and (2) very glittery, but it is neither. On the skin, Reflex seems to have more pink in it than it appears; compared to the Candy and Espiègle JCs, Reflex has a distinct pink / red component instead of just peach or orange. The sparkle also translates as a sheen, not actual particles that are visible on the skin.
I am cool-toned, but I find I can pull off Reflex -- which, to me, is *slightly* reminiscent of NARS Orgasm, shade wise (yet not nearly the same in texture). It adds a peachy pink glow without being overwhelmingly orange (as it would appear). Lovely!

This is my favourite blush of all time. It so versatile and can be used in the day without looking overdone, and in the night looking completely flawless. I have slight problems with redness that some blushes make worse, however relfex goes on perfectly and makes my skin tone look so much better. Everyone I know who owns it absolutely loves it. It can be a bit expensive, however I have used it every day for over a year and I still haven't hit the pan. Highly Recommended.

Honestly I'm not impressed. I bought it cos in the store light the colour looked gorgeous. I'm not saying it's a bad product, just that on me it looks brown with a hint of orange, no red, no pink, almost like a bronzer (I'm mac nc20 for refference). Btw, I'm reviewing the Europeean version. I could call it a neutral colour, if not for the small glitter. I like my blushes with a sheen (Mac Springsheen, Coralista), but not glitter. I have small pores but when i look in the mirror, I can see very small pieces of glitter settled into my pores. For somebody with big pores that would be a disaster. So, for day time use it's too glittery, for night time use it's too neutral. Price wise, I've seen nicer blushes for 1/3 of the price. Small quantity also, only 4g (Mac are 6g).
Packaging..it's ok. Chanel packaging is nice cos of it's elegant simplicity, but it is in fact simple plastic. The mirror is nice and wide but it doesn't go all the way back so you can't see all your face in it.
It has the typical Chanel rose smell which I like, some people might not.
I wouldn't buy it again even if I used the one I have (and I won't cos I never reach for it) cos it's not such a special colour to justify the price.

I got this product last year and i LOVE it.
I have fair skin but live in Spain.. and the great thing is that in the winter i apply it and it looks fabulous .. in the summer on top of a tan i apply it and it looks fab! This is just one of those must have products to me and I have read that it has been discontinued in the states and just hope that when the time comes for me to re-purchase it, its still available here in Spain! I can no way afford any chanel clothes handbags etc.. but i do get a sneaky bit of pleasure every time i go in to buy another bottle of my Chanel Pro Lumiere foundation.. how sad haha!

My first Chanel blush ever! I was so excited to get this :) It's a gorgeous coral with gold shimmer in it and it's so so so pigmented! You can wear this very lightly for a lovely everyday shade or you can build it up for nights out. It will definitely suit alot of skintones and give a really nice coral flush to your cheeks. And the packaging is so lush! An absolutely gorgeous compact, with a really handy mirror inside. It also comes with a mini brush, but mine isn't very usable as the ends are a bit scratchy and doesn't apply the product very well so i use my Napoleon Perdis Sable Blush Brush '22b' with it instead and flawless results! The only downside is the price at $71AUD but I love this and will definitely repurchase when I hit pan!

I am DDD and this blush gives my complexion a light and fresh pinky-peachy glow. Very youthful glow. I haven't bought or worn blush in well over 10 years. The Chanel consultant suggested that I try this blush when I was purchasing Rouge Allure lipstick in Enthusiast (which, by the way, is a sexy -- yet subtle -- red on my tanned mocha skin). When she applied Reflex to my cheeks, I was sold. Even after she told me the very chi-chi price of $47cad - ouch! - I was still sold because it is such a high quality blush. And clearly, very suitable for many complexions based on all the reviews here. And, the consultant told me that the blush will last for years, so this is a good investment for me considering that this will be my one and only blush. Chanel lipsticks are another story...I have enough of those to last me for the next few years -- I'm so crazy -- and cute! ;-)

What is the matter with me??!!! I love blushes, I kept on buying them and I would end up with half of them that the colours are like 10% to 20% slight variations to each other! Albeit with different names, and different brands! And when on the face, they look more or less the same, nobody could tell the difference between the peach one, or the peachier one, or the pinky peach one, or the gold peach with shimmer, or the light gold bronze one. Especially after wearing it for 1 or 2 hours and the coIour had faded a bit, had oxidised some and my natural oils had kicked in. I couldn't either! And having said that, I dutifully and happily bought the Chanel blush in Reflex and I ended up with (yet) another beautiful peach blush (my NC30 skin caught the slightest hint of rose in it too, strange..) I have warm, yellow undertones. Long lasting, need just a bit to get good colour payoff, with a subtle slight shimmer. Nice! :)

I love this blush but it's no longer available in the US. Is there another blush close to this shade? It can be Chanel or any brand. Thanks!

Okey expensive product again. But I love it! I have VERY fair skin. And this coral shade looks awesome even winter. It works well summer too, when I`m little bit tanned. I put it little bit thicker than winter. There is little bit shine, but not too much. (Nars orgasm is too shine for me, actually this colour is very near to it, but not that shiny) I first pick up this my friend recommending and this come one of the products wich I have bought more than once. But it last for ages.
Hint: When you use it long time, it come little bit hard. Then I wipe it little bit facial tissue and then it`s brand new again. You can still buy it strawberrynet, they shipping world wide. (:

Nice colour for my fair NC15 complexion: a warm peachy/coral. It is what I wished Orgasm by Nars to be. It warms my complexion without being too obvious, it is sparkly but in a very subtle and gracious way, the pigmentation is amazing and it lasts for ages. I asked the SA in Selfridges if it is discontinued and she said that for the time being it is still available in the UK. If you are looking for that touch of warm colour this is the right product.

Paying my respects to this dearly departed, RIP, perfect peach/coral blush. Fair skinned, warm redhead here, and this is my blush hg. I even bought a backup when it was announced Reflex would depart the U.S. shores. After something like 3-4 years of using my original pan continuously and exclusively , I just tucked into that backup on New Year Day 2010, so no one is kidding when they say the Chanels last forever. And, for the record, in all my long makeup years, I've NEVER finished a blush before this-let alone bought a duplicate. I certainly debated buying that backup at the time, what with the cost of these little darlings and all. But, now I'm glad I did because I'd tear up considerably if I had to think about starting anew with another blush. So, well done and happy New Year on that early backup plan, me!
This does look downright disco queen in the pan. But on me, it applies like the lightest, natural glowy, perfect peach color. Like my natural blush in the summer sun, only better. Not a shred of pink anywhere....just a glorious sun kissed, warm peach that makes my face brighten up and come alive. I imagine cooler skins could find this possibly garish and orangey, but on this decidedly warm complexion, it's just perfection.
