As pretty as the look is for the Tibet inspired Himalayan Collection, I wasn't really feeling the products when I checked them out instore; the lipsticks were a bit too bold for my liking and the eyeshadow duo just too shimmery.
Not one to be deterred I picked up the Cheek Gelée
Hydrating Gel-Cream Blush.
The shade is called Happy and its a soft
illuminating petal pink, its quite translucent so skin does show through.
Swatched below, then blended in,
The formula is a joy, it has a somewhat creamy/gel feel to it, its not
heavy and it spreads over the skin and blends in impeccably. It feel
moisturising and there is no sticky or greasy feel. Chantecaille state
it has the lasting power of a stain and I agree with this.
There is everything to love here but I think the success of this is
going to depend on the state of you skin and this is why this does not
reach its full potential on me.
My skin has a lot of discolouration/acne scarring, and whilst this looks quite nice on me when I tried it
on my mother (who has much clearer skin) it performed much better. My skin
takes away some of the fresh pink hue and luminosity of this product,
whereas on my mother the beautiful pigment and radiant glow are evident.
I think this is a great product, but you'll not get the best out of this
if you have bad skin like me.
I bought this from SpaceNK
