Le Blush Creme De Chanel - My most reached for blush this Autumn!

 As a fan of Creme Blush in general I was excited to try these Chanel Creme Blushes that I received as a gift from a friend for my 30th birthday in September (Thank you, Sherry!).

I adore Chanel's makeup line anyway, but I absolutely acknowledge that some of their products fall flat, while others (like these!) are wonderful in doing what they say they will and sticking true to their promise.

As I am a pale, blue-toned, Irish-skin-having-Irish-girl, these shades do work perfectly on my complexion, and their creme to powder formula perfect for those of us with a dry/dehydrated skin texture.


The two pinkish shades this time, a bright and blue toned baby pink experience with the Affinite (65), and a deeper raspberry toned flush with the Chamade (67) have been on my most-reached-for list since I received them, the creme to powder perfect for building as much, or as little product as you want or need. I tend to go easy on the blush, using only a flush here or there to highlight my cheek bones, and give a healthy colour to my otherwise at times Casper-esq skintone.



 +CHANEL promises a "A melt-away texture with a silky feel. Vibrant, luminous shades with a satiny finish." And they don't lie with these. The coverage is barely there (easily build-able), if you apply it with a soft touch - I like to use my +realtechniques buffing brush to apply and and buff into the skin so that it leaves no harsh lines, and is completely blended into my cheeks for the most natural finish possible.

But you can, if you so desire, layer these bad boys on and look a little crazy and I for one certainly won't judge you, because hey, sometimes you just want really rosy cheeks, right?

Ok so maybe NOT like this... 




But no, seriously though...

The coverage was tested on several occasions for me, and most recent being a wedding where I had to be on the go for at least 12 hours, and I needed something that as my skin is rather dry - particularly at this time of year, I needed something that wouldn't budge but continue to look *jazz hands * luminous. And as I checked my makeup several times throughout the night, my lipstick needed a few applications. My blush and base did not!

Result!
  
Tiny swatch test on my ghostly skin. Baby Pink or Raspberry it's nice to have a choice! 
This range comes in six shades over all, and these two in particular I find could carry you though a few seasons as they are diverse enough that light applications and the overall look of the rest of your makeup could take you very easily from Autumn /Winter into Spring/Summer. And even though they were a lovely birthday present I'd be happy to pay for the rest now that I know the +CHANEL formula works with my skin and works so well!
