An innovative powder-cream formula offers an enticing new way to blush with sheer yet vibrant pigments for instant luminosity. The silky texture offers a long-wear satin finish—soft and comfortable for every skin type—and is simple to apply with fingertips or brush.

LE BLUSH CRÈME DE CHANEL - $38.00 USD (.09 oz.)

66 FANTASTIC - burgundy (limited edition)

I was able to purchase 66 FANTASTIC from Nordstrom.com. This new limited edition creme blush is one of the six new LE BLUSH CREME DE CHANEL from the Chanel Fall Superstition collection. The remaining five are to become part of Chanel's permanent line of blushes. Besides Fantastic, I also wanted to purchase 65 AFFINITE but it's no longer on the Nordstrom website. Hopefully I'll be able to purchase it on the Chanel website or from my local counter. For now though, I am extremely happy with Fantastic.

66 FANTASTIC is described as a burgundy colored blush but it seemed more like a bright raspberry pink (check out the swatches below). This creme blush goes on smooth and was extremely easy to blend out on my cheeks (see the last two pics below). It has a smooth feel and finish and I didn't notice any waxy or greasy residue. The blush is extremely pigmented so I only applied a light application and the color was still amazing. Since I applied such a light application I used my ring finger to blend out the blush instead of a makeup brush. Although one can be used, I preferred to use my hand and the warmth to help blend in the blush. The lasting power for the blush is dependent on how heavily it is applied. The blush soaks into the skin but if a heavy application is used then there is a chance for smudging or smearing. Overall the results from this creme blush are amazing. I am definitely going to purchase more.
