As part of Chanel’s Fall 2013 beauty collection earlier in the year, they released a brand new cream blush line up or in Chanel language “Le Blush Creme de Chanel”. Fancy. Being a huge lover of cream blushes, when I first heard about this release I may have done a happy dance and rightly so, because 1) the promo images were gorgeous, and 2) they were Chanel! Hello, talk about two birds with one stone. I die.

Absolutely adore the shades and the texture of these. The blushes are a cream to powder formula and very easy to work with, and they blend well into the skin with a natural, even finish. Pigmentation is good, but also buildable without caking up. Lasting time is fabulous, I can get a good 6-8 hours on my normal/combination skin. Bottom line, I’m super happy with the cream blushes, lusting after more, and hope Chanel continues to release new shades!

Le Blush Creme de Chanel in Revelation #63
My favourite of the lot! This was actually one of the only two blushes I brought with me on my USA holiday last September! It’s a beautiful warm, rosy pink. One of those no fuss shades that matches any look.
Le Blush Creme de Chanel in#66
This is a stunning fuchsia shade with a hint of berry. Super pigmented so a little goes a long way. This one makes for a Fantastic bold cheek, you can pair with smoky eyes for the evening.
