Hello pretty ladies! another super busy week has gone by and as usual, i look forward to blogging again. Lately, i've been posting at a snail's pace and i still have lots of stuffs to review. I promise to catch up as soon as i'm done with all the things i need to do.
Anyway, my post for today is about this luxurious Chanel blush. Les Tissages de Chanel Blush Duo Tweed Effect in Tweed Corail. Initially, i wanted to buy Joues Contraste in Rose Petal (i still want it), i've been eyeing that blush for the longest time. But unfortunately, it was out of stock the time i went to Chanel so i chose this one instead since the color suits me...and i also didn't want to leave the place empty-handed. :-)
The first thing i noticed and instantly liked is the embossed tweed effect on the powder. As much as i hated to ruin it's pretty appearance, i knew i had to spoil it one way or another...Or else, i will never have the heart to do so. Hmm, that's one of the pitfalls of owning a lovely looking makeup.
As the name implies, the color is a soft peachy coral pink with a hint of shimmery gold. At first, i was kinda' hesitant to buy this coz' it looks more peach than pink on the pan. I also wasn't sure if i could pull this color off. Plus, i was scared that it might look a bit orange-y on me. Well, i should've known better than not to trust Chanel coz' the moment i applied it on my cheeks i was in love! The blush surprisingly complemented my complexion in a very nice way. It gave me a lovely healthy glow that looks so subtle and delicate. It's not the usual rosy-i-just-pinched-my-cheeks color, it's more of the natural sun-kissed glow. The shimmers/highlights have a combination of fine and larger flecks which blends perfectly on the skin. The effect is not too shiny and not too matte, just right in between.
The downside is the exorbitant price, at 2650 pesos or around $50 it is quite a lot for a blush. I also think that this shade will suit fairer girls more. The color is so light and sheer that it might not be too visible with darker skin tones. The brush that comes with it is also kinda' useless coz' it's one of those typical synthetic brushes that is quite harsh on the skin. It also comes with a velvet pouch which i don't use coz' it's just a major dust-collector and i'm not that OC yet to protect a compact that's already protected inside my makeup pouch...;-)
As you can see from the swatches above, the color looks so sheer, light and has a subtle sheen to it. I had to apply several layers in order for the color to pop out. But it's actually better that way coz' i can control the amount according to how i like it. This is also one of those makeup that looks and feels clean on my skin. I don't even know if there's such a thing but this is what i feel everytime i use this. The lasting power is also ok as it somehow survived through all my sweat and oils *happy*
Will i repurchase?
Yes in a heartbeat! I'm so in love with it right now! I mean, i still love my NARS Deep Throat and Shu Uemura M Pink 30 but this one might just SNAG the throne. I just had to say it over and over again that the color is sooo lovely! This is one classy blush compact that's worth every penny! :-)
