I really really really love this. It is the best blush i ever had. It looks so great on my face, that i want to use it every day and night ( lol)
I use it every day and it is great for every occasion.
It looks like your face lightling up when you use this stuff. Even when i have a bad day, this stuff make me look like it is a great day!

This is my HG blush. I first saw this blush on a Chanel SA - she looked peaches-and cream gorgeous! The colour in the pan looks a bit 'scary' or intense, but on the skin it truly is the ultimate peach blush, with a subtle golden shimmer. So build-able, so you never need to look 'overdone'. I'm quite pale/freckly and this blush makes my skin look glowing and alive! Lasts all day on my normal-slightly oily cheeks. My only qualm is with tiny brush included in the compact - useless. Of course the compact itself is as clasically elegant as all Chanel products & the blush is hard-baked into the compact, making it almost unbreakable. And the price? Well... Did I mention it makes my skin look glowing and alive? :-)

This is the nicest blush I have ever used! Over foundation the texture is not better than my clinique blush but on bare skin or over just powder its soooo much better than anything I have ever used. I never used to wear blusher unless I was wearing foundation cos I could never get it to look smooth and natural on my crappy bare skin but this looks lovely on bare skin, possibly even better than over foundation as the colour looks truer. Its a gorgeous peach colour quite vibrant but also fool proof to apply as you have to build it up and so theres no risk of looking like a doll unless you try to. I looks like its going to be crazy shimmery but its not at all! Without foundation it is just glowy but not shimmery and over foundation it is slightly more metallic looking but none the less natural. I love the packaging and the faint rose scent. Only down sides are the really crap brush it comes with, i use my own fluffy jemma kidd brush which is great, and then of course the price which is by far the most I have ever spent on blush but I think its probably going to be worth it as I have never managed to finish a blush before and this will probably last forever.

Beautiful blusher-it suits my skin tone whether sun-tanned or pale (for reference have come down from Vitalumiere Beige to Clair). Lasts forever, has a lovely shimmer and the peachy tone makes you look glowing and healthy. Not too dark, very buildable, would def repurchase!

I would not recommend this to fair skinned ladies (I am Gentle Ivory in Chanel foundation, for reference). This looks a bit scary-looking, but also lovely in the pan (I have the European version), but it makes me look like a clown, even with the lightest touch of this stuff. It's way too orange-y for my cool-toned skin. Like a previous reviewer said, this looks like I've smeared orange sherbet on my cheeks.
UPDATE: I'm upgrading my rating from a 2 to a 3. I had been using this with bronzer, and yesterday decided to use it alone, and it looked very nice - not orange-y at all. If you're fair, I would not recommend trying to use this with bronzer, or you'll just end up looking like an Oompa Loompa. I'd still recommend a light touch for fair-skinned ladies. I wouldn't buy again though, because: A) it's been discontinued in the US, and B) I think I look better in pink blush.

So sad this shade was discontinued. It is truly the mother of all peach blushes. No orange, pink or rose shade in Reflex. Just a beautifully radiant peach shade and very longlasting too. I usually wear this blush when I do a green or plum eye with peach cheeks and lips. I happen to love the rose scent that is unique to Chanel products. If I were to stumble upon Reflex again I would snatch it in a heartbeat even at the $42 pricetag! For reference: NC 35, oily skin

I'm Chanel Clair and I thought Reflex would be a bit too dark for my skin. However, after the SA applied this on me, I totally fell in love with the color! It is definitely not as scary and dark as it is in its own packaging. The one I have is Made in France, so I can't compare with the US version. However, I would really recommend this color, it kinda wakes up my pale skin. I pair this up with Aqualumiere Gloss in Freeze, put on some mascara and eyeliner and I'm out of the house! The given brush is a little too stiff for my liking but not a big issue. If I ever run out of this product (which I think will unlikely happen), I would definitely buy this again. The one I have now will probably last me forever!!

I have olive-hued skin and for me this is the perfect natural-looking blush. I consider the pigmentation just right as it makes the blush easy to apply without accidently putting on too much, but at the same time the blush is visible even if applied lightly. The color is a slightly sparkly peachy orange and is adorable with some tan. Highly recommended for somewhat warmer complexions.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
This looks kind of scary in the pan but on the skin its much lighter. It is very pigmented, so all you need is a light touch, lasts all day. It is a very nice orangey peachy gold colour. it has a lot of shimmer but it doesnt show up on the face. The colour is similar to MAC's Springsheen only this has a lot more orange than pink. I think this would look very nice with a tan or on darker skin, but it still looks nice on my PPP skin. I can't imagine that I'll ever use this up as I only need to apply the lightest amount, so in that way the $40 price tag isn't so bad.

Chanel Reflex is discontinued in the US, but available everywhere else, however the old US version is DIFFERENT from the European version. This goes a ways to explain the different reviews for this, and you can find out whether yours is European or US by looking on the bottom - 'made in France' is the European version, 'made in USA' is obviously, US. I will be reviewing the European version. It retailed for $40USD for 4g.
The European one is supposed to have more orange tones and shimmer than the US one, and from product photos of the other this looks to be about right. However, I do like my Euro JC - it's baked, so looks pretty hard - but I don't need to swipe hard to get enough product, and the texture is somehow very shimmery but on-cheek, becomes more subtle? It's hard to explain but it's a lovely effect.
The colour is a gorgeous corally-red-tinge-of-orange peach, with shimmer (I see a lot of gold but is it just a trick of the light or is there a tad of green?!) and applied, it actually looks quite natural on me! It's positively odd - but quite nice! It reminds me a bit of a peachier, subdued NARS Torrid w/ nicer shimmer.
Packaging is very classy, nice mirror but terrible brush! The fragrance of the JC is pretty strong - I like it, but it's a bit strange at first. I'm also not crazy about the price - don't get me wrong, it's a VERY NICE BLUSH. It's just not $40+tax nice for me - I would much rather spend it on something else, especially since you only get 4g with the Chanel. I like it, but not a rebuy.
I am NC25 (Studio Fix), C3 (MAC Face & Body), 30 (Chanel), 2 (MUFE Face & Body, winter) & OC02 (Lunasol Intellectual Powder foundation, winter)

I was accosted by a Chanel BC who insisted this would look fabulous on my fair skin. I have alot of peach pink undertones and was skeptical this would enhance me in any way. Well, this is very orange in the compact and shimmery too which is misleading. Once applied this really brightens without looking garish. Apply with a light hand and blend considerably. I wear this with Magic Glossimer, which I think is discontinued, together they make the skin glow without a fake bronze look. The Chanel BC was right on both counts with this blush and the gloss.

Yes, this is a very pretty blush, peachy and sometimes orangey when applied with a heavy hand. But I cannot spend $40 on blush anymore when I have other things that are just as comparable for like five or ten dollars. The problem I have with Chanel blushes (besides the price) is that they're so darn pretty to look at, but upon application the dome becomes cracked and the color payoff is nothing unique. I hate fragrance in face products, too, and whatever they put in Chanel is too potent for my taste.

This was my 1st Chanel blush and thank goodness I received it in a swap. For referrence I am NC 30/ Chanel Beige, and when I applied Reflex on my cheeks it looked orangey/ruddy. The pigmentation of this blush is so-so as I had to apply it in a few layers to get any color payoff, and no I didn't overapply it to make it look orangey/ruddy, it did that on its own. It didn't change color throughout the day, and it did wear all day ( luckily I didn't have to go out that day), but because of the way it looks on my skintone, this Chanel blush is not a keeper for me. On the bright side, the classic and chic Chanel packaging is always nice, and the light rose smell I adore, but for the retail price $40 USD, I am glad to have swapped for it rather than have payed full price for it...

I love this blush. This is not a color for light to fair skin. Its more for a darker complexion due to the coral, shimmery color.
I wear it with my bronzer and it looks great. Its silky smooth and lasts forever. I've had it for a couple of years!
The case is sturdy and has a big mirror.
I'm a big Chanel fan actually..and rave with most of their products!

I wanted to love this blush but it showed me no love. I can wear almost every color but frosty shades. It didn't look like it would be frosty but on me it was orange, frosty and chalky. In the package it was a lovely color. I'd say peachy coral with a touch of orange but on me it looked like chalky orange sherbert. I am a LLL on the foundation chart.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Hazel
Reflex is more golden-coral than peach on me. So yes I think this is not peachy but not orangey like some reviewed either. I love it as it has loads of gold microshimmer which make my face glowy and gorgeous. Smells DIVINE too! I heard that it's going to be discontinued, so if you want it you have to get it while you still can. I'm NW20,brunette,hazel eyes for reference.

Well, as much as I love my Chanle JC's this is just ok. I agree w/ ccm'lle that this isn't really peach, it's more orangey. I do like it, esp. over bronzer, but I don't reach for it as much as my other Chanel blushes like Orchid Rose, or Rose Petale. NC 20ish, Dk Blonde, blue/grey eyes.

Sorry to ruin the party- but Chanel Reflex is golden, orangey shimmer on me. "Peach" should have a touch of milkiness IMO. The golden shimmer is a tad too frosty. I am sure this would look great over bronzer, but I was hoping for a softer color that can be worn alone. Reflex is not one of my favorite blushes from Chanel.NARS Orgasm is far better for a shimmery peachy pink glow.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
This is a beautiful golden peach with a nice shimmer to it. I thought that I would never be able to get my hands on it - I was so excited when I was able to swap for it! I love it! It adds a nice peachy glow to my cheeks without being orange. It goes on nicely and does not make my pores look huge. I love it!

Reflex, the mother of all peach blushes. Not much to say that hasn't already been said. Lovely, warm, lit from within glow. I would agree that it leans towards the orange side, if anything, I wish it had a touch more pink vs. the orange. But its still so stunning I can't take off any lippies for it. If you love peach blushes of any kind, you must try to get your hands on a Reflex! You won't be disapointed.
