On my 4th compact!
This review is for #44 Narcisse
Just passing, this blusher looks like it could be very chalky. It is a rosy pink that I dust on my apples and all the way up my cheek bones to my hair line.
I am quite pale with olive undertones and I tend to turn my makeup a shade darker (thanks oily skin!) but this doesn't oxidize darker - it just stays fresh and beautiful. Also, I am acne prone and most people think you don't want to put pink on red pimples, but this blusher actually helps my breakouts blend in and not standout.
I know it is expensive, it is the most expensive makeup item that I purchase $45. But if you look in the mirror of my picture, you can see the product is in a dome shape, so there is a lot of pressed powder in the compact. I bought my 4th compact in November 2010!! I wear this Summer and Winter.
It lost 1/2 a star because I do not like the enclosed brush. A) it falls out ever time I open the compact B) it is so small, it's more like a sculpting brush.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
i love this blush so much and try to hold off on using it everyday brausr it is a pretty penny. I love that it smells like rose petals. That is Another reason why I absolutely love chanel product they all smell fabulous. Pigmentation is excellent. Gesture is smooth and blendable.
I have this blush in Rose Petale so far, and it is a wonderful natural-looking neutral pink that goes with practically everything and works for practically every occasion. A must-have for my everyday makeup. It's not matte, but it has pretty subtle shimmers. I normally go for matte blushes, since I have oily skin and I already glow too much, but this actually works really well for me and the shimmers don't show up too much. Application is wonderful. I get perfect color payoff, and I only need to use a tiny bit, since I'm quite fair. Brush is a little dinky... but I have never used it, so I don't care!
Smells really pretty too!
