Chanel Creme Blush in Inspiration

I’ve reviewed the first two Chanel creme blushes  —Affinite and Revelation — in this post. When the Fall 2013 collection dropped here in the Philippines, I impulsively decided to grab Inspiration together with the nail polishes. I had nothing but glowing reviews for Revelation and Affinite which is why despite my better judgment to hold off on any more blushes, I went and purchased one more to add to my cream blush family. 


Inspiration is a cool-toned light pink that’s the lightest shade among the three I now own. Revelation is warm pink rose while Affinite is bright almost-fuschia pink. Inspiration is less pigmented than the first two but buildable. I love Inspiration for the ‘naturally flushed’ look it gives. It’s a shade that most brands probably already have but in my stash, I couldn’t find an exact dupe. 2a

4 3 I love the cream-to-powder finish of these blushes. They are easy to apply — dab dab, blend blend blend with my fingers, which is my favorite method to use with these. Even if they’re pigmented at first dab, they blend really well without dragging the skin — thanks to the silicones. I haven’t tried YSL or Dior’s cream blushes so I can’t compare but from swatches, I can tell that these have a more matte finish. Correct me if I’m wrong, though. 6 Bottom Line? I love these cream blushes. I am a powder blush girl so I was very hesitant to try these at first. I don’t like sticky, tacky cream blushes that make you look oily even if you’re not. These Chanel blushes are great for the cream-blush-averse because the finish is beautiful, light as air but packed with pigment that’s easy to control and blend. *My skin is peeling from a treatment I used. Sorry about that! Just couldn’t post this cream blush review without a photo seeing how it looks in action.

    yayy i love these cream blushes too! like you i’ve always been a powder blush kind of girl but these totally sold me on how easy they are to apply and how lovely a consistency they dry off to. i picked up the color “presage,” the bright orange color that turned into a gorgeous peachy pink on my cheeks 🙂

      I’ve been debating whether to get Presage or not! Maybe I didn’t blend it properly when I tried it. I’ll give it another try as it’s limited edition!

    I love affinite! I’m just a huge rose shade fan! It looks so natural like a pinch on your cheeks!

    • August 19, 2013 / 2:53 pm

      I’m not quite convinced it looks good on my skin tone though 🙁 But yes, it’s gorgeous!

    • August 19, 2013 / 2:53 pm

      Yes, they all look so lovely, it’s bad!

    These are so beautiful but Revelation is probably my most fave. I like orange-y blushes and even on the swatch it looks nice. Inspiration looked a little cooler on you than it did on the pan and I really dislike cool colors.

    • August 23, 2013 / 1:29 am

      Revelation is very pretty! Since you like orange-y, you’ll probably like Presage! 🙂
      And yes, Inspiration is very cool. I quite like it, though!
