 Chanel joues contrast powder blush - £31

This blusher has been on my wishlist for a couple of years now. Every time I get my makeup done at a Chanel counter, the makeup artist would always choose to use this shade on me and I think it just really suits my skintone very well and really flattering. I never caved in to purchasing this though due to the expensive price tag this came with and I always vow to try and find an alternative shade that is similar to this one.

This blush has tiny shimmery particles and the colour is quite multidimentional. I would describe the colouring of this to be quite similar to the infamous NARS orgasm shade but a bit more on the pinkier side. The blush itself is very finely milled and applies so nicely. I don't use the brush provided as I find it to be a little bit too small and fiddly to apply with therefore I choose to use the Real techniques blush brush to apply to get a nice finish. The product is easy to work with and I find that the pigmentation is just right as some heavily pigmented products are quite hard to use and blend out to create a nice finish.

I was quite suprised to say that this blush did last quite a long time on my skin despite my skin being combination oily and I have to blot throughout the day. The colour just seems to work very well with my other face products and I think that it is definitley worth the money. This has got to be an expensive splurge for me but I just can't believe how much I loved it and put off from buying this for all this time. This blush is now in my everyday make-up bag and taken the place of my truley loved NARS orgasm :)
