Chanel In Love Joues Contraste Blush
Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes are finely milled, super soft textured, pressed powder blushes – that when you touch them, you almost feel like because of the texture, they will apply powdery, like some of the softer textured budget brand blushes. But they apply such a soft, sheer veil of color to the cheeks that never looks blotchy or overdone. It’s buildable, so with a couple of layers, you can really achieve intense color (if that’s what you’re looking for), otherwise, one layer deposits the perfect amount of blush.
Chanel Joues Contraste Blush is available in eleven (11) shades: Imprevu, Orchid Rose, Rose Bronze, Rose Petale, In Love, Espiegle, Rose Ecrin, Pink Explosion, Plum Attraction, Malice and Tumulte. (You can correct me if I’m mistaken, but there are 11 currently listed on the website)
I tried to capture the way it looks on my face, but unfortunately, the lighting was awful, and it didn’t photograph very well. If you’d like to see it on my cheeks, I will update this post later with an additional photo.
I really like this shade, and think it’d be great for Summer paired with flamingo-pink and coral lipsticks! If you already have a few similar shades in your blush collection, it’s probably not a must-have, but if you’re a Chanel fanatic (or a peach blush fanatic), I’m sure you’ll enjoy using this blush.
Side Note: *Countries outside of the USA have a baked version of Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes rather than a pressed powder. There may be inconsistencies with both versions – the color may or may not be spot on and the texture and pigmentation differs. Everyone has their own preference, but I like the US version blushes better.
Price: $43, Chanel.
