Ask me which blush is my holy grail and I’ll answer with the Chanel Le Blush Creme De Chanel in a snap. No hesitations. No pauses.
It’s that good. I swear.
It’s totally the perfect blush for anyone with an oily skin. It doesn’t slide off quickly and lasts for a long time.
Now let me show you the newest shade I got over a month ago that I haven’t reviewed yet.
Cheeky is described as a rose with bronze tint. The color is true-to-pan on my arm but on my cheeks, it imparts a lovely bit of rosey flush, barely noticeable from afar but beautiful nonetheless. The powder-cream formula makes it relatively easy to blend with my fingers and build up the color to my liking. It melts seamlessly on the skin and settles to a matte finish.
With the other Chanel cream blushes I have, the usual first 3 dots on top of my cheekbones blended out is sufficient enough to achieve a healthy flush. This one though is quite different. I have to get more of the cream and layer it on generously so I can get a more desired warmth on my cheeks. To me, it acts more like a cream bronzer rather than a blush which is truly well and wonderful as I am a sucker for a bronzer without any shimmer.
Fair-skinned individuals will be happy to note that this could double up as a contour. (Or is it triple? A blush, bronzer and contour. Seems like a 3-in-1 cream product for all you fair ladies out there.) But not me. I like my contour products with some taupe in it.
Just like my experience with the rest of Chanel’s cream blushes, Cheeky boasts an impressive wear time before I have to reapply. While it may not last as long as the ones I’ve purchased before, it still beats most brands by a mile.
By the way, you can find the review I did for Intonation along with a swatch of Chamade here.
So… did any of you manage to pick up Cheeky?
