Review – Chanel Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 67 Rose Tourbillon
This is yet another in the series of ‘Firsts’ posts – my first Chanel Joues Poudre Powder Blush in 67 Rose Tourbillon. I’m sure most of you are no stranger to Chanel. It possesses that undeniable touch of class and sophistication, where you are rendered helpless against that pull to sweep it off the shelf. That sleek black packaging is beautiful, though not as luxurious now that i have gotten a taste of Tom Ford.
Description: (Taken from the Chanel website)
The touch of colour and radiance. Offers makeup effects from very natural to very sophisticated. Used as a simple touch of colour, it gives your complexion a healthy glow. As a professional tool, it shapes and models your face (cheekbones, browbones, forehead, chin, along the nose). Manufactured by a process exclusive to CHANEL, the compact and silky texture of JOUES CONTRASTE gives easy application and subtle blending. The brush is made of natural hair. Highlighting your cheekbones enhances the youthful appearance of your face.
This is a swatch of 67 Rose Tourbillon (top), together with the Illamasqua Powder Blush in Nymph (bottom).
67 Rose Tourbillon is a shimmery bright hot pink, and it is extremely pigmented so a light hand is definitely recommended here. It is advisable to start light, and then slowly build up the color to the desired intensity. Although it is quite finely-milled, I found the texture to be a little dry, but it applies smoothly to give a nice warm glow on your cheeks. The little brush that accompanies it is nice and soft, but i definitely still prefer my own Sigma blush brush and only use the small brush for touch-ups on the go. I adore the lovely rose scent! In terms of lasting power, it managed to stay put for ~5 hours.
