Hello Gorgeous Ladies,
Today’s beauty world is breaking a lot of beauty myths with the products. Your matte foundation can be given light by adding a touch of radiance-giving powder or liquid, any foundation can be made long lasting by layering onto a good primer, your matte lipstick can come to life with a gloss, your creamy lipstick can set to a matte finish with the help of a little powder and your cream blush can have a powder finish and longevity. Any product can be used in any way – sky is the limit to the experimentation that’s possible today. Today, I bring to you a product from the last category – a cream blush with a powder finish!
If a product has taken the beauty world by storm in recent times, it has to be the Chanel’s Crème Blush. Amazing colours, so difficult to pick one. Rati has reviewed Affinite and Presage for you earlier. I bring to you Chamade. But, is it worth the hype? Let’s find out:
Product Details (from the official website):
This innovative powder-cream formula offers an enticing new way to blush with sheer yet vibrant pigments for instant luminosity. The silky texture offers a long-wear satin finish—soft and comfortable for every skin type—and is simple to apply with fingertips or brush.
$38 in US / In India @ INR 2300 for 2.5 gm of the product (yes, we really skimped on the quantity!!!)
The Chanel cream blush comes in the usual black sleek square Chanel packaging with a velvet sleeve and a black outer casing. The packaging consists of a non-refillable compact with mirror. There is no applicator along with the product, but then, cream blushes generally don’t come with applicators of any sort. The cream product does not bear Chanel logo on it – just on the case and sleeve. All in all, the packaging is sleek, upmarket and understated elegance.
My Experience with Chanel Cream Blush – #67 Chamade:
Color: The colour is described as a “deep pink,” but in the pan, it appears rather red. Red and scary!!! But on the cheeks, it goes more reddish-pink, it is cool toned. You can vary the colour to a bold look or a lightly blushed one, depending on the amount of product you pick. You could get the colour in the pan, but who would want that on the cheeks!! There is no shimmer or glitter in the product, but the colour has a kind of luminosity to it once applied to the cheeks. The colour would suit all skin tones and would show up very easily on all. Fair skin tone girls will have to ensure a very light hand at this. Since the blush itself is cool toned, it would go well with all bright pink/red cool toned lipsticks.
Texture: It’s a hard cream texture – it’s not too emollient, nor does it get lumpy on the finger. It’s kind of powdery, but does not apply patchy. Instead, it blends like a dream. Quite amazing!
Pigmentation: This one is amazingly pigmented. You have to apply with a very light hand. If using fingers, one or 2 light dots are enough. If using a brush, one light dip into the pan gives sufficient colour. Anything more would take it over the top. So, this 2.5 gm of product is likely to last a long time because a little definitely goes a long way!
Lasting Power: The product lasted about 7 hours on my oily skin, which is amazing for a product which is actually cream based.
To sum this up for you:
Pros of Chanel Cream Blush – #67 Chamade:
- Amazing shade – can go as a barely-there blush to a more dramatic one.
- Fantastic pigmentation – a little goes a long way.
- Great staying power – lasts for about 7 hours.
- Does not accentuate pores.
- Applies evenly and is a dream to blend.
- Did not break me out.
- Classy packaging.
- No fragrance.
Cons of Chanel Cream Blush – #67 Chamade:
- Absolutely nothing except availability of brand across India.
Yes, a 6/5 product.
Absolutely LOVE the product! This is my second Chanel cream blush (first review though) and I don’t mind picking up one more – these are phenomenal – worth the hype and worth every penny! If you are new to blushes and want to start using one, I would suggest you to pick up one of these as they are available in some divine colours, great product quality and easy to apply – you could just use your fingertips. Though I am loving applying them with my new MAC #188!. This colour in particular is perfect for me, I love bright lips and this provides a great accompaniment for them. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!
