Favourite Blush: Chanel Joues Contraste in Orchid Rose Review and Cheek Swatches

Today I want to show you my ultimate blush love. These days I hardly use any powder blushes on myself. But I still love my Chanel Orchid Rose and I use it a lot.

Ever since getting this shade of Joues Contraste a few years ago  I have been the biggest fan.  Orchid Rose gets used every single day!

This is how it looks like in the pan:

The very clever  sales assistant who works  at my local Chanel counter  told me that Orchid Rose was their bestseller. Apparently, it suits most skin tones.

Below you can see how it looks like on my hand. Although it is a powder blush, it melds into the skin, and never sits on top.

I rarely post photos of myself but today I want to show you how this blush looks like on my face.

It is not a matte blush, it has some fine shimmer to it, hence it looks delicate and sophisticated on the face.  Think soft-focused, healthy flush.  Blush is truly the product that can instantly transform the way you  look. It is simply brightening, refreshing and, dare I say, glamorous.

Also, if you want a cool toned blush  – be sure to check out Joues Contraste in  Narcisse.  It  is another  best selling shade from the range.

You should also know that Joues Contraste is a perfumed blush but the  signature rose scent is not too heavy. At least,  not for my taste.

I love everything about Joues Contraste from the design to the way it blends.  Because of these reasons, I highly recommend  it to everyone.  The price of the blush is £29 or  $42 and it’s a great value for the product that will last you for ages.

Available from Nordstorm,   Selfridges and  Harrods.

And what is your favourite powder blush?

  1. This looks very pretty! I only own one JC, it’s Pink Explosion, and it’s probably the only pale pink that looks pretty on me, I absolutely love it. I never really looked at the other chanel blushes available here but if that Orchid Rose is, I definitely need to swatch it.

  2. I love Orchid Rose too! I have been using this blush for ages too. It is expensive, but considering I haven’t bought another one since it speaks volumes!

    Glad to see someone else loves the blush as much as I do.
