Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes
Description: 

Unique powder blusher offers buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic, and imparts a flattering radiance to cheeks. Remarkably silky texture ensures easy application of seamless colour. Applied high on the cheekbone, or near the eyes, it instantly ‘lifts’ and softens the face for a more youthful look.

If you got Bourjois blushes you’re gonna love the next sentence. Chanel and Bourjois are sister companies. Their blushes are made with the same method, baked. Unlike the Bourjois blushes, Chanel’s blushes are softer on touch. Baked products usually harden with time and have to be applied in a few layers to get the color payoff which is why I have avoided buying baked anything in the past. I really liked the colors which were available and find that they cover all skin types.The finish is more pearly or shimmery side than matte with these Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes.

Now, to be fully honest when I did the swatches of Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes they came out light. It has some kind of shine to it so that you get a “dewy” finish on your cheeks. I liked how buildable they are and if applied with one or two strokes of a brush, the blush is perfect for day wear, but if applied with 3 – 4 it’s perfect for clubbing or for flash photography. The Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes are finely-milled and have a silky smooth finish. The blush doesn’t have a chalky or powdery finish. They look very natural on cheeks. I personally think that these blushes are blushes for everyday.

Bourjois and Chanel have really nice baked blushes. The color range is different but the texture is similar. Chanel has a softer texture when comparing to Bourjois. Chanel has a better brush, packaging and texture. Bourjois blush hardens  after some shorter time. While the Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes are much more long lasting and have better pigmentation. If you think these blushes are to aggressive for your taste, then check out my post on Les Tissages de Chanel blushes.
