Chanel Joues Contraste in Rouge Swatch and Review

Chanel Joues Contraste in Rouge is part of Chanel’s Byzance Collection. Many beautiful blogs have mentioned about this product, one of them is Reika from frontrowbeauty . She does a beautiful post on Chanel’s products.

The color of this blush is a very striking red color. Yes, it’s RED! You have to be very careful when applying this blush because when you put too much, you will have a red cheek (not pink) and it won’t be pretty 😉 Here’s the swatch of the color:

I personally think it would be quite difficult to wear this shade without any highlighter. Then, I layered the color with Chanel Ombres Tissees Beiges from Les Aquarelles Collection , you can see the review here . And see how wonderful the color has become 🙂

This color reminds me of Bobbi Brown Blush in Peony, read the reviews here . It looks quite similar with Bobbi Brown’s Peony, but it’s just the shimmer that makes it looks different.

Overall, I don’t think this color is a must buy product from Chanel. But if you are a Chanel cosmetic collector, go and grab it 😉



Les Tendres de Chanel in Les Roses

What a beautiful day it is!

It’s cloudy outside yet it’s not raining. The wind blows my mind as I write this post while sipping my afternoon tea. It’s a perfect day to write about such a pretty blusher from Chanel. 🙂

First of all, I bought this blush on my flight to HongKong 2 months ago. I saw this beautiful palette on a flight catalogue and fell in love with it. I have never seen this in any Chanel outlet in either Singapore or Sydney. and I think this is right, one of my favorite make up blogger, Reika from frontrowbeauty confirmed my thoughts. It’s a HongKong limited edition.

This palette combined the pretty pink color for a blush and the perfect shimmer of a highlighter. There are 4 colors in the palette that I would describe as a perfect combination of a blusher and a highlighter.

as you can see abobe, the two colors on the top is a perfect cheek highlighter.

The color on the top is a very soft pink with a bit of shimmer.

The second color is a white shimmery shades.

The third color is a pink color which is perfect for a cheek blusher.

The color on the bottom is the darkest color of all four. I personally don’t really like this color on it’s own. But when it is mixed with the third color, it looks nice.


This set comes with a brush. The brush is exactly in the same shape as the one in Chanel Bronze Corail (click here for the review). The difference between the brush is only the color. Bronze Corail’s brushes comes in black color while this is in white color. If you ask me whether this brush is good enough to use, I’d say not really. It’s good enough for travelling but I’d rather use a proper blushing brush for my daily use.

Here’s the swatch for you guys:

From both pictures above, you can see clearly that the two colors on the top is very sheer. You can barely see the color on my hand.


In this picture, you can see a little difference in the two colors at the bottom of the palette. Both colors are pink, but the one at the bottom is slightly darker.


The net weight of this palette is 14g which means I can use it for quite long.


If I should compare the quality of the two shades on the top to Chanel Ombres Tissees Beiges , I’d still prefer Ombres Tissees Beiges as it has more shimmer compared to this. However, this palette is worth buying if you are in HongKong or going to HongKong 🙂

Les Aquarelles De Chanel – Ombres Tissées Beiges Swatch

3 days ago, I was very busy with something and suddenly I got a call from Chanel Make up in ION Orchard telling me that they have a new limited edition highlighter. It’s from the Les Aquarelles De Chanel collection. I was very busy with my things that day so I thought that they offered me a Topkapi eyeshadow palette from Byzance Collection (reviewed by one of my favorite make up blogger), so I called them back to confirm whether it’s a Byzance Collection or is it a different one. They told me that the new item coming in was from Les Aquarelles De Chanel collection. So then I decided to take a look after I finish with my schedule.

Les Aquarelles Collection is the make up collection which is used for Chanel Couture Show in Paris. The purpose of this make up is to emphasize the natural look of the models. The colors of their make up is very natural. It’s mostly quite pale but very pretty.

When I walked in to the store, my favorite make up artist from Chanel greeted me and offered me this Ombres Tissées Beiges. As usual, Chanel’s packaging is always very pretty. They are very sparkly and and cute.


As you can see, the color is very soft. It’s not highly pigmented. But it’s definitely going to be my favorite highlighter for my nose, cheek bones and eyes. Here I’m going to swatch the color for you:

The left color is the top color of the palette. The middle color is the second, and lastly the pink color on my hand is the color at the bottom of the palette.

I really can’t wait to experiment my make up today to create a sparkly look for this weekend 🙂

Ombres Tissées Beiges is retailing exclusively in Chanel ION Orchard at $95

Happy weekend guys,


MeMo 🙂
