The Chanel Accent Joues Contraste Powder Blush (£31) looks more of a rosy brown with noticeable silver sparkle as opposed to its "luminous pink beige" description.
Swatching this on myself and the SA who was darker with a
warmer tone, the shade was quite different. On the SA it went on
a mauve rose brown whereas on me it goes on more of a
rust/sienna colour. Applying too much it can look a bit dirty and can make me skin look ruddy,
though I do like the warmth and somewhat contoured look it creates,
its quite an unusual colour in some respects.
Swatched below twice and them blended in,
The texture feels smooth albeit slightly powdery and dry. It has
very good pigmentation and a long lasting wear. I wouldn't say
this applies effortlessly and do have to make sure I blend/buff
the edges in well.
Chanel Fatal (£23) Illusion d’Ombre is a plummy
burgundy with a silver shimmer, though applied I find this has a
Its very pigmented and has a metallic finish,
not an every day shade for me. The texture is creamy and soft,
and it applies smooth and lasts the day with no creasing as long
as I use an eye primer.
This is one of those time where though I really like the
colours, they are not particularity flattering on me, Accent I
think would suit those with a darker skintone and less cool in
tone than myself and Fatal gives me that tired look.
All in all I have not done too well with this years Chanel
holiday collection, the majority seem to love it but the collection certainly isn't ticking the boxes for me.
I bought these from Boots.
