Chanel Sakura (87) Joues Contraste Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a light-medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and gold sparkle strewn over a satin finish. Giorgio Armani Eccentrico (LE, $88.00) is more shimmery. Urban Decay Overexposed (LE) is darker. Edward Bess Filled with Desire (P, $43.00) is lighter. MAC Royal Sunset (LE, $21.00) is warmer. MAC Launch Away (LE, $21.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

Sakura is a new and limited edition shade that’s exclusive to Chanel.com (it may also be in Chanel boutiques, but the information I have says online only, so you might call to see if a physical location is near to you). It had more buildable color payoff, and it seemed to build up to semi-opaque color coverage at most, which is in line with how it’s described (“buildable coverage”). The texture was soft, finely-milled, and a smidgen powdery when applying, but on the skin, it seems to melt and smooth out so it doesn’t look powdery or dry on the cheeks. It was very easy to blend and soften the edges as I applied it as a blush. The color wore well for almost eight hours before it began to fade around the edges.
