Chanel Chamade (67) & Intonation (69) Le Blush Creme de Chanel

Chanel Chamade (67) Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “deep pink.” It looks rather red in the pan, and applied, it’s more like a reddish-pink with subtle cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. It is extremely pigmented; as in, a couple pats of color onto the cheeks is plenty for fair to medium complexions. The consistency is lightweight, creamy initially, but it quickly sets to a soft, powdery texture that is easy to blend out on the skin. It lasted well for nine hours on me before showing signs of fading. Chanel Affinite (65) (P, $38.00) is much lighter. MAC Keep It Casual (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer. Chanel Rouge (LE, $43.00) is powder and more shimmery. Burberry Hydrangea Pink (P, $42.00) is slightly pinker, powder. See comparison swatches.

MAC Magnetic Nude Extra Dimension Skinfinishes

There are three shades of MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish ($30.00 for 0.31 oz.) in the upcoming Magnetic Nude collection, which launches in-stores and at-counter on December 26th. Superb is a repromote, while the other two shades are new (and of course, limited edition). Those are the two that I’m testing for wear today, so I will update with ratings and wear times once I’ve finished wearing them.
