I believe it was Christmas. I got a Sephora Gift Card. And even if it should be quite cool (big important problems I know), it felt like I had to really think through what I would buy. Let me explain : I could either just buy my regular serum and be wise in a way. OR I could just get myself THE THING(SSSS) I’d never usually buy with my own money because I’m quite cautious like that.
Because it was Christmas I thought « I would love to own a lovely Chanel something ».
Because I have to say, in terms of luxury and super chic packaging, Chanel is an inspiration.
And, I love blusher. Blusher would be THE thing I take away with me if I only have to use one product for the rest of my life.
My tip is that I always put a touch of blush in the center of my face, down my nose, to make it look like I’ve been running or something. Which is, of course, something I would actually never do.
I had watched Sali Hughes in the Bathroom with Mary Greenwell which to me is basically the best series on makeup on youtube. It definitely made me fall in love with beauty. I remember Mary Greenwell saying with her fabulous voice « Chanel of course, my darling Chanel. I love Chanel Blushers, they’re so good ! »
I knew it was what I should get.
I love pink blusher. It somehow seems to be less popular online that apricot, coral, peachy colored blush. But to me pink is a classic. I would be the girl with a gorgeous Chanel Pink Blush in her handbag. Tellement chic.
After I don’t know how many Chanel swatches online and in real life, I decided to get the Joues Contrastes in the color 72, Rose Initial. To be honest, the name really helped me to choose… It’s a true pink with the softest golden sheen. Nothing like Nars Orgasm. It’s very subtle and looks natural. The brush which comes with it actually does a decent job.
I put it quite high on the cheeks and on the apples. Also, my tip is that I always put a touch of blush in the center down my nose, to make it look like I’ve been running or something. Which is, of course, something I would actually never do. Run ? NON.
It simply gives the loveliest glow to the cheeks.
Oh and also it smells like actual roses.
And the packaging itself is a little work of art.
Ok I’m gonna stop now. It’s parfait.
