I was looking for a blush that is hard to flub and asked the sales lady to help me with this. She recommended this blush. At first I was not sure of the colour as it looks a bit dull and Im not a fan of shimmer. When she put it on my skin I was really impressed as it gives me a natural glow and the shimmers seems to disappear. I have never been so happy with blushes before as most of them tends to sit on my cheeks. This however blends very nicely and I would buy this again. Lets' hope that they will continue to sell this gorgeous blush.
P/S: i think this colour will suit fair to medium skin best.
Try this blush with Rouge Coco Shine in Evasion.

My favorite blushes are Nars but lately I have started my obsession with chanel blushes. I am attracted to Orchid Rose in particular so I went to our local Nordstrom to buy it. I was told it was discontinued. I searched online and found it on Saks. When I received the blush I like it so much that I decided to order a backup but it was already sold out also at Saks. I called all the local stores around our area that carry Chanel and I was so happy to find the last Orchid Rose at Macys. It is the perfect neutral pink that would match with anything. It is not powdery at all and blends beautifully. It has a subtle shimmer that I love that doesn't emphasize my pores. Definitely an HG. I never buy backups on makeup because I know I wont finish it but I love this so much and I'm glad I did before it's completely gone in the market.

Let me start off by saying I am... erm... not exactly monogamous in the blush category. I have TONS of them. I LOVE tons of them. And, also, when it comes to Chanel products, I expect a lot. I have found very few of their products that live up to the cost for me.
But Chanel can do blush, possibly better than any other company out there! The JC blushes are amazing, and this color in particular is about as close to perfect as they get. To me, this is a dusty, rosy pink - on the cooler side with just a smidge of mauve. When I initially looked at it at the counter, I really wasn't sure it would show up much on me, even though I am kind of on the border of fair and light in skintone. And this isn't a screaming, bright, vibrant blush by any means, but it gives a lovely "lit from within" glow to my face which I love. It goes with almost everything else I might want to wear on my face - red lipstick, pale lips and smokey eyes, neutrals, pinks... I do reach for a warmer toned blush when wearing the really warm colors, but thats seldom for me with my coloring.
All of the JC blushes I have tried have been extremely finely milled, without being overly powdery. They just seem to melt right in to my skin. Likewise, there is some shimmer present, but again, it just blends in to a soft glow - never a shimmer, shine, and definitely not any chunks of glitter on my face. The lasting power on me is fine (my skin is dry - this may be more of an issue for the oilier folks). It lasts through my workday, but if I go out at night, I do a little touch-up. I could live without the smell, but it fades quickly and does give you that feeling that this is truly luxurious somehow.
I said "yes" to buying again, because I love it and I would, except that my next blush love is right around the corner and I can't seem to stay faithful, so we'll see. It may just be another blush from this line!
**Edit 9/8/12** Aaaahhhh! They DISCONTINUED this?!? I Can't believe they did that - it was absolutely perfect! Luckily these last forever, so I'll horde the rest. Chanel's JC in Tempting Beige is a pretty close color too - a little more peachy/nude, less mauve, but it will do as a replacement.

I just started my JC obsession or collecting Chanel makeup generally- when I first got this, my impression was dusty rose, I'm N15 so I have no idea how this will look on me.. I normally stick to pink blush, I have tonnes of them. This is a unique addition and I kind of use it when I want a toned down muted brownish pink contouring look on my cheeks, I use it like a bronzer and I am liking it! :) took a Lippie off for price. Highly pigmented and prob looks amazing on more tanned skintones

My mom bought this years ago and passed it down to me. My first impression of it was that it was a dusty plumy rose and had shimmer in it. I usually hate shimmer in blushes, but the shimmer in this one didn't show up on my skin. I like this blush for the fall and the winter. I wouldn't buy this again because it's too expensive for a blush.

Meh.I occasionally buy Chanel,but during the last few months I became quite obsesed with the line.the previous blushes I bought were US versions but Orchid rose is the baked one which is sold in outside US.
well,it is a splurge really but it doesn't live up to my expectations.The texture is truly a trouble.it is so hard that I have to dig the product with my 109,not to mention that softer brushes like 168 do not work with this.As a result,it is hard to blend.I am surprised that people are saying this is a pigmented blush.I am NC20 and I have to layer it to see some color.I don't have a problem with sheer blushes,I actually always prefer sheer and natural colors on my cheeks.but I would like my expensive blush to be pigmented enough so I can decide how much I am going to sheer it out with different brushes and application.
The shimmer is very fine,it is barely visible on face,and I really love the fact that it is a green/silver flash rather than gold.it doesn't emphasize my pores,the lasting power is better than avarage.
I love the color a lot,it gives me the "my cheeks but better" effect,and looks neither too warm nor cool.
I have been carrying it in my bag for the last few weeks and I have to say I am quite into it but I just think that at this price point,texture and low pigmentation that is caused by it shouldn't be an issue.So I am giving 3 stars.

My absolute favourite beauty product of all time! I would never, ever, ever even consider changing blushes. It is absolutely gorgeous, and I have about 5 different colour (orchid rose and tea rose are my favourites) it is so subtle yet it brightens up your entire face. I recommend this to anybody with quite fair skin, or even medium skin. Lovely packaging, although the cover scratches fairly easily and the brush is a little small. Mirror can get a bit dusty from the blush, although if you keep the cover on this shouldn't be a problem. Amazing, amazing product, buy it!

Finally, the perfect blush that goes with everything! Subtle enough to go with lipsticks from almost-black-red to a sheer gloss; so glad I finally decided to buy this. Smell on application is such a nice touch.

This is a soft pink glowy blush that goes with just about anything. It is light, so I think it would show up better on fairer skin tones. When you swipe it though, I find that it deposits more glow than color, and it smells very, very strongly of roses. If you like this, then great. But I cannot stand heavily fragranced products... Granted, the rose scent does dissipate after wearing for a few hours, but when you are putting the blush on, the rose scent just sort of permeates your nose. Another note is that the blush itself is kind of hard (if you press on it, it doesn't yield). The texture is comparable to a Dior blush, but compared to Chantecaille blushes, Orchid Rose doesn't feel that finely milled.

This blush is soooooo beautiful. I hate bright blush (by my definition even Nars Amour is bright) but this blush is a very subtle, delicate, pink that makes my cheeks GLOW. The sparkles that look so obvious in the pan translate to this gorgeous sheen on the cheeks. It's not a doll colored pink, it's very much a natural human flesh toned pink. It basically makes you look lit from within. Gorgeous. The only two drawbacks are the price and somewhat the packaging (I hate the little brush thing, and think it would be much classier if packaged without it).

One of my favorites!!!! I was my everyday blush for more than a year!!!! It is a subtle blush, that doesn't look cakey.

This is a review for the US version.
It wasn't a love at first sight, especially when I saw how sparkly it look in the pan. Then I swatched it on my hand and the sparkles were there but fortunately they show up as a lovely glow on my cheeks when I use my 187 brush. Surprisingly, it looks very natural on my NC20-25 skin because I can't really think of someone that blushes with glitter (NARS Orgasm, I am looking at you).
The thing is that as much as I like the glow, I prefer matte finishes for my blush because they look even more natural (I have breakouts sometimes so it can look a bit weird). I prefer experimenting with eyeshadow and lipstick rather than blush (bronzer is another thing, lol)
So, in few words - if you like glitter - go for NARS orgasm & co., if you like glow get this one, if you like matte finishes, go for Givenchy :)
The only reason, I wouldn't repurchase is that it takes me ages to finish a blush and if I am not 100% wowed by it, I am pretty much bored by then.
Edit: So I was feeling tired, I had an awful breakout and poeple were complimenting my complexion and how fresh I looked. Most were surprised that the only thing I changed in my routine was the blush so I am starting to get wowed.
Edit 2: I love love love it! I get compliments, it smells nice, my skin loves it so I am getting it again!

I love this blush on me! I'm NC30 in MAC, and I am very picky when it comes to blushes. I find alot of blushes to be either too brownish, too orangey or too pinkish, and I am always on the search for the perfect color. I previously owned the Chanel Blush in Rose Bronze but find it to be a tad brownish for my liking. The Be-Bop which comes in the rectangular pan is a little too light and too pinkish. Fantasia used to be my favorite, but they discontinued it. Orchid Rose is the PERFECT shade. It does not look too appealing in the pan and it's something I would have never tried on if I wasn't so bored that fateful day when I was out mindless shopping. When I tried the blush on and looked in the mirror WOW. This rose/berry color gives my face a radiant glow and it's the right tone and shade, just what I have been looking for. It makes me look so healthy and has a very subtle sheer sheen to it, providing the glowy effect. It is also highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way. The scent, just like anything other Chanel blushes/lipsticks is very pleasant. I constantly go to the mall to try it on before I made my purchase, and I noticed that it wears well throughout the day. I finally got it a few weeks later in the DFS store here in waikiki.

This was my first Chanel blush that I bought, and I must say I was definitely pleased with it. I hadn't tried out the blush when I bought it but it looked like a gorgeous natural color, and it turned out to be just that!
Its not the most pigmented blush I've tried (mine is the European version, I dont know if the formulation would therefore be different) but it is hard to overdo and it looks great on - super natural.
It does have a smell to it (it smells absolutely gorgeous but I'm not sure how to describe it) but it is unnoticable once its on your face.
There's not much product (only 4g!) but you really dont need to use a lot of product.
The only two things I weren't completely satisfied with would be the packaging and the price. The packaging is the standard glossy Chanel packaging however, after using the blush on a regular basis, I've noticed that the hinges holding the case of the blush together are getting loose, and its getting a little wobbly. The price issue is pretty self explanatory - it was 35 euros, and the Chanel website lists it as $42 - which is a little too much for such a small amount of product.
I said I wouldnt buy the product again simply because there are other products that I would rather buy for the same money that have more product in them. However, there is always the possibility that I would buy another Joues Contraste, but in a different colour.

Oh thank you so much MakeUpAlley for this discovery! I was always afraid to use blush, because I have a natural blush of my own (a very very light rosacea) and I thought that using a blush this would accentuate that. I've tried a few colors (from other brands) and they all afirmed the idea a had of using a blush on my skin... till I tried this one!
It gives me a nice and more important NATURAL color that it doesn't look like I'm wearing make up.
I've heard that the European version is another color than the US one, I don't know what the difference is between them but the European color is really natural and beautiful. It's baked, so you really have to swirl your brush a couple of times on the product but I like this. I can easily decide how much color I want and I can slowly build it up. I never end with to much blush :-)
If you want a natural looking blush, go for this one! It's not cheap (my God, I've payed almost as much as my foundation of YSL) but it's worth is. It goes with everything and every look you're going after.

This is the first time I've bought a blush from Chanel having used Nars for the most part in the past. I wanted something more natural with a flawless finely milled texture and this fits the bill. I have Nars Orgasm powder blush and then the Nars Orgasm Illuminator product which is in a tube. The color of the Orgasm Illuminator is perfect for my skin tone, but I prefer a powder blush. So I brought the tube into Nordstrom's with me and the sales assistant helped my to select the Orchid Rose color as the closest match. I love the color - it's very natural on my extremely fair skin that has a pink undertone. I hardly have to use any, the product has this fabulous rose fragrance and I believe there is more product per weight with the Chanel blush than the Nars. I'm very happy all around with this. It's one of my favorite Chanel makeup products so far.

at first ı want to say jacquest constante blushes are my hg blushes and my favorite one is narcisse and reflex.
in addition to this ı have 4 blush from the same product and one of these is orchid rose.
orcid rose has two different colour- ı mean it has two version. USA version is more pinky - ı liked that much more than my country version (türkiye/sells other version). if you like orcid you should look fresque and reflex also, ı think. ı love everything about these blushes.

Orchid Rose is a soft tawny beige with some soft rose in it. I'm NC 30, warm and yellow toned. I have to layer it on a bit but the end result is worth it. Gives you the warm, glow from within effect that is very long lasting and very natural. It goes particularly well with my peachy pink lipsticks and any of the beige ones). Definitely a warm colour, and one can't really overdo it, since I love buffing my blushes in. One of my better loved JCs and I do love them all.....

This is my 1st Chanel Blush! The first thing I noticed was that it smells so good! It smells like roses or lilacs. The color of Orchid Rose is light, warm pink with a beautiful subtle shimmery sheen. The powder itself is soo soft, which makes it effortless to blend. The color is very natural and subtle on my NC40 skin tone. I've been wearing it every day on my cheekbones over my MAC Golden Bronzer. Its such a pretty color and it warms up to my skin tone well. I bet it's better suited for lighter skin tones but I think its absolutely gorgeous and is one of my favorite blushes. I can't wait to try others.. such as Fandango, Mocha, Rose Bronze.. etc :)

I love Chanel blushers, smell is lovely I could smell them all day. Don't fade or streak, great pigment, package is lovely as well. Black sleek case easy to open and close. The brush is useless however. Mirrors are great on ALL Chanel packages. Chanel is the ultimate in sophisticated makeup. Soft texture and satin finish on this shade. I purchased this in Rome when I was 17 and remember that Iove the way it blended and the smell. The colour is a nude rose in my opinion.
