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 🙂
