After lusting for CHANEL BLUSH / JOUES Contraste, as they say… for almost 2 yrs, here is my first review for the colour I picked recently. Part of CHANEL Spring 2013 Collection, I wanted to pick the gloss in Marveille too but settled for just a blush. FRIVOLE is described as Luminous Apricot; it is medium – dark peachy orange shade with a tad bit of pink in it. It is warm toned blush and works really when on my skin tone , I do feel it does require a layer or two but then as the texture is finally milled it just blends in and doesn’t look powdery or chalky even if I layer for more intense colour – true to its pan kind .
As I was trying to compile a post – “RED LIPSTICKsss I have “ , here is a quick swatch post for the reviews lying in drafts …. will be sharing quick reviews this week and some facts on how and when my love grew to new heights for “RED LIP COLOR “ .
With a huge success of the duo fiber (skunk) brush MAC introduced almost a decade ago, many other cosmetic companies started pouring in with their own versions. With all looking the same (minor differences in the design of handle) there were some that made magnanimous hits while others flopped in desperation to keep upto the quality mark.
At last !!! I picked the most beautiful RED from CHANEL , I was eying this ever since it was launched ( so cheesy isn’t it ?? ) NOOO I only picked when I came to knew that CHANEL is discontinuing this range and as am all for Red’s and a true fan of “C” I thought of shelling 2100/- on this beauty .
I already had one from this range but when “C” mentioned H E R E that this is going to be discontinued I didn’t wanted to miss a chance as an honest believer in her choices and recommendation I had to have this in my stash . Again she proved right and when I tried this in store even hubs was surprised to see the color on me . DO I love her ?? AHH !!! I do and I even love those who hate me for loving her , for eg. my teeny tiny pocket and ????
I was overwhelmed with your response on my CHANEL TWEED BLUSH and was quite happy with my right move . I am in love with the blush and surprisingly am using it quite often. The color is highly pigmented and stays good for 6 – 7 hrs on cheeks and looks very natural.
I love all of my blush no matter what color , texture and brand they are , but as they say , This is CHANEL so definitely a little extra brownie points for uber beautiful color , isn’t it ??
