Chanel Joues Contraste Fleur de Lotus Review
Yoohoo, i'm back with another blush on review. It's my new baby from Joues Contraste collection, Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 69 Fleur de Lotus.
I'm currently on a mission to buy all the shades i love. I already have 6 Joues Contraste blush in total. Rose Petale, Rose Initial, Rouge, Fleur De Lotus, Ultra Rose and Rose Tourbillon. My next target are Pink Explosion (on its way to me), Star Dust and Frivole. 2 more to go, and then i'll stop until Chanel releases new shades. After JC mission, i already have another missions, i will hunt some blusher from another big brands.
You know, when it comes to blusher, it's too irresistible, i simply can't stop buying it. I know i only have 2 cheeks. But there are 365 days a year, right? I can wear them one by one alternately :P
Women can't have too much blushers, just like they can't have too much shoes, muahaha *evil laugh*
Ok, back on topic.
Chanel Joues Contraste Fleur de Lotus is a part of the limited-edition 6-piece Fleur de Lotus collection, a Nordstrom exclusive. This collection was previously released in Asia, but became very popular that Chanel decided to release it in US also, but still on its original baked formula.
The packaging is just like the rest of JC blush, a black sleek and elegant compact with the double C logo on the center. It's also came with a suede pouch and a mini brush too.
Chanel Joues Contraste Fleur de Lotus is a very pretty peachy coral blush on. The color is outstandingly beautiful, which i think will look pretty on all skin tones. This blush has a luminescent sheen that gives you a healthy, glowing look instantly. It's shimmery just like any other baked formula blush, but no worries ladies, the shimmer is very subtle.
The texture is smooth and silky. It's finely milled and easy to blend. It has a great pigmentation & staying power, i only need one swipe for each cheek, and it lasted for 8 hours on my oily face, not bad eh? And just like all the Joues Contraste blushes, it a soft rose scent that i really love.
My friend once said to me that Fleur de Lotus is a perfect version of the ever famous NARS Orgasm. And i must say that i agreed. While they're both pretty, for me Fleur wins because it doesn't emphasizing my pores. And NARS O's shimmer does it, big time.
I really love Fleur de Lotus. It's easily become my current favorite blush. The color is stunning, it gives me a beautiful glow (you must already know how i adore glowing face, right?), it has a good pigmentation and staying power and also season appropriate. It's pricey, yes. But then again, it's Chanel we're talking about. And with $48 i got a good quality blush on, so i really don't mind the price.
