Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose
Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “duo of pinks.” It’s a light-medium, muted pink with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It seems to have less sheen than a satin, but it’s not quite matte once it is blended and buffed on the skin. MAC Modest Blush (LE, $27.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Pink Sprinkles (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Lesson in Love (LE, $21.00) is a touch lighter, cooler. Chanel Innocence (160) (P, $45.00) is warmer. MAC Cheeky Bugger (LE, $21.00) is very similar. Divergent Misty Rose (LE) is darker, warmer. Make Up For Ever #330 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is a cream product. NARS Love (LE, $29.00) is warmer, darker. bareMinerals Glamour (LE, $19.00) is similar. MAC Formal (LE) is slightly cooler-toned. Urban Decay Overexposed (LE) is similar. theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler-toned. NYX Mauve (P, $5.00) is similar. NYX Dusty Rose (P, $5.00) is slightly darker. MAC At Dusk (LE, $25.00) is darker. Illamasqua Naked Rose (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
The texture is finely-milled, but it’s also a little firm, particularly in comparison to Chanel’s blushes and cheek products. It had decent to good, somewhat buildable pigmentation, though it is a subtler shade. I’m medium (about NC25/NC30), and it is subtle on my skin tone, so it might be one to try in-store for those with similar or darker skin tones. I would also recommend using a smaller blush brush, as a larger one didn’t seem to swirl quite as well in the pan, so it applied the colors unevenly. I noticed this more because the blush itself didn’t blend as effortlessly as many Chanel blushes do. On me, the color lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. I was surprised to see it only contained 0.10 oz., whereas a regular blush contains 0.21 oz., though the compact itself is the same size as the Joues Contraste blushes.
