Chanel Fall 2013 make up collection has been launched since two months ago and I still can’t stop to talk about how gorgeous the collection is. I have mentioned how much I love Chanel cream blush in Revelation in my previous post here and now I am going to show you another two more blush that I picked up recently. This time I picked up Affinite and Presage.
Affinite is a a bright bubble gum pink. This shade has a blue toned in it. The shade looks very bright on the pan but when it is swatched lightly, it doesn’t look as bright as what you see on the pan. Just remember to dab on lightly and build the shade slowly. I think this shade is suitable for ladies with both light skin and dark skin.
Presage is a coral/orange shade and it is a Limited Edition shade. I don’t usually wear orange shade on my cheek but this shade is an exception. I like how this shade does not make me look washed out but it actually freshen up my whole look. I would suggest for you to grab this shade if you have the chance. This shade is very easy to use and you will less likely to go wrong with it. It is a limited Edition shade so make sure you are not missing this one
Tips on applying the product:
After trying and testing these products for a while, I realized that there are many ways to apply Chanel Cream blush.
- Firstly; using your own finger to dab the product onto your cheek. What I usually do is I after I finished applying all my base product, I start to dab my finger and apply it onto my cheek and spread the product evenly to my cheek bone and make sure that the color spreads nicely. If I want to have a more popping blush, I’ll add another layer.
- Secondly, is to use brush to pick up the color and blend it together. The first brush that I’d recommend to use is Real Technique stippling brush. This brush helps to pick up the color easily but helps to control the application to look natural. The bristles in Real Technique stippling brush is very soft and less dense, hence it helps to spread the color evenly without picking up unnecessary amount of color.
- Other than real Technique Stippling Brush, I would also recommend Tom Ford Cream Foundation Brush. Tom Ford Cream Foundation brush has denser bristles.
Overall I think Chanel has launched a great collection of cream blushes. It is definitely one of my favorite range of cream blushes out there. The texture is emollient and creamy; more over it stays for a very long time.
