88 VIVACITE AND 89 CANAILLE CHANEL JOUES CONTRASTE BLUSHES - SWATCHES AND REVIEW


In April Chanel will launch the Perfection Lumiere Velvet smooth-effect makeup along with two Joues Contraste baked blushes: 88 Vivacite and 89 Canaille. Currently the whole collection is available in store at Nordstrom but I have yet to see it online. Both blushes are currently priced at $45.00 USD and they both contain .14 oz of product. 

I had the opportunity to swatch both blushes (see pics below) and I must say they are extremely pigmented. Although the color can be blended down if it seems a tad too much. One thing I have noticed with the baked blushes is the rose scent is much stronger with them than the US version. If you can get past the really strong rose scent these are definitely worth the money. I loved both blushes but I only purchased 88 Vivacite. The other blush, Canaille, was just too muddy looking for my really fair skin but it should work beautifully for those with a warmer skintone.

I really like both the colors. I usually don't buy Chanel blushes because they are so expensive. But some quads and lipsticks, and glosses I buy…oh ya and the highlighters……sigh

These are both super gorgeous! I'm quite new purchasing Chanel beauty products (I just purchased my first couple of items a few weeks ago!), I might have to check these out in person.
