A soft, silky powder blush that enhances the complexion with a touch of colour and radiance. In a wide range of shades.
JOUES CONTRASTE features "baked powder" technology: a manufacturing process exclusive to Chanel that results in a particularly soft, fine texture. For easy application and touch-ups, the compact includes a deluxe brush.
HOW TO APPLY
Sweep onto the apples of the cheeks for a fresh, natural makeup result using the deluxe applicator, Blush Brush #4 or Blending Foundation Brush #7. Sculpt the face by using a lighter shade on the cheekbones and a deeper shade just below to create depth.
First of all, I received this blush in a beautiful box with a row of Chanel stickers, a red sash, a return label, and very posh-looking receipt for “my records”. So right off the bat, it felt like luxury. The blush itself looks like a stunning little peach gem tucked inside a secure little box and covered with the perfect-sized plastic dome. There’s a blush brush which I never use but keep “just in case” I travel and God forbid I don’t have my human-face-sized brush. There’s a faint whiff of opulence as I apply the blush, a small number of angels escape and dive into my pores. The blush is buildsble, gorgeous, and has a slight shimmer. It’s ever so slight, you hardly notice it, so it looks quite natural. Everything feels so extravagant, start to finish. When I think of blush, there are dozens of pigments in my collection, this one now comes to mind first. It feels special, different, wonderful. It’s like I’m trying to recapture my first experience of receiving it in the small. My point: if you want the experience and delivery of luxury at a relatively decent price-point, buy this blush. It really is so very special. Thank you, Chanel!
