Blush Week Series Ender
We’ve reached the end of what seems to be the blush blackhole I got sucked into this week, you guys! It was a bit tiring to talk about blush for seven straight entries (with a break in between) but thank you to everyone who plowed through those days with me. I really appreciate it, especially the time you guys took to leave comments and join in on the conversation. Much love, sisters!
For this Blush Week ender, I’ll save the long and somewhat monotonous breakdown and instead just talk briefly about the first ever powdered blush product that made me realize I can wear one without looking overdone (in spite of my chronic heavy-hand syndrome!). Yup, of all the blushes in existence, it just had to be a Chanel blush.
My first seemingly intimidating plastic black compact with the signature interlocking Cs was actually just a hand-me-down from my mom who didn’t realize she bought two items of the same shade. Instead of returning it, she gave it to me to try out despite her knowledge of my aversion to blushes (as I only ever wore cheek tints then). And that, my friends, is when things started to spiral out of control. Hah!
As with the eyeshadow quads, Chanel’s blushes also come in two formulations — the US non-baked pure powder version and the European/rest-of-the-world baked version. The US versions are more pigmented, non-shimmery and just pack more punch than most, if not all, of the baked versions. There are some baked ones, though, that are very pigmented and come sans shimmer like Fleur de Lotus. But in most cases, the European version is quite sheer compared to the US version and contains microshimmer. Also, they’re drier and are quite powdery.
However, I don’t hate the Euro version of blushes as compared to the eyeshadow quads that I rant about endlessly (which by the way was recently reformulated!!). The baked version I’ve actually come to love because I like the soft, airy finish on the cheeks. They’re very natural and hard to overdo. As I’ve mentioned one too many times during this blush week, I’m a big fan of sheer/buildable blushes much preferring them to highly pigmented ones.
Fleur de Lotus is a peachy pink coral. It was initially an Asia-Exclusive shade but was sold in the US via Nordstrom. It has no discernible shimmer in pan and even looks matte upon swatching but leaves a slight luminescent sheen on the cheeks. It’s one of the sheerer shades of the bunch yet I would say this is in my top three favorites. I believe this is being compared to NARS Orgasm sans the shimmer. Thought this has been already discontinued but apparently is still available on Nordstrom now.
Rose Inital (review here) is a neutral rose pink shade that’s been raved about by many to be a universally-flattering shade. It has identifiable microshimmer in pan but the specks don’t at all show up on the skin, instead just translates to an indiscernible glow on the cheeks. This is one of my most-used shades despite being a fairly recent purchase as I find it to be a very easy-to-wear everyday shade.
Rose Tourbillon (review here) is a bright almost-raspberry hot pink with silver shimmer and is definitely one of the more pigmented shades in the range. It looks scary shimmery in pan but when applied on the cheeks doesn’t translate to a glittery mess. I don’t particularly reach for this often, as I’m boring and safe and stick to my light blushes 90% of the time. But
