Le Blush Creme de Chanel | Affinite

posted on: Tuesday, February 11, 2014

I've really been loving blush lately and I've been testing out different formulas and colours. I bought this Chanel cream blush back in September with birthday money, and I am really happy with it!

Le Blush Creme de Chanel in number 65, Affinite
This blush has a really unique formula and texture. Chanel describes it as a powder-cream formula with sheer yet vibrant pigmentation. When you touch the blush, it really does feel like a powder, but as you glide your finger over the blush it also feels like a creamy texture. It feels silky, and doesn't feel sticky, or tacky. The look is very natural with a statin finish. It is supposed to wear for approximately 8 hours, which I'd say is true for me. I really love the bright pink colour of this blush too. The colour looks pretty scary and bright in the pan, but it sheers out nicely on the skin. If I want the colour to be bolder, I build it up gradually. I usually apply a small amount of blush to my cheeks with my fingers, then blend it out with my Real Techniques Stippling Brush.

Have any of you tried any of the Chanel Cream blushes? What are your favourite blushes?
