Chanel Rose Ecrin Joues Contraste
Chanel Fall 2011: Rose Ecrin Joues Contraste
Chanel Rose Ecrin Joues Contraste ($43.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a neutral pink with a satin sheen. It’s neither warm nor cool, but if I had to say it leaned one way or the other, I would say it leans slightly yellow. Rose Ecrin is a subtle blusher as the color blends out to a semi-sheer dusting of rosy pink with a hint of beige once applied. It is a buildable color, but the color itself is muted so it will never be too much.
Joues Contraste contains a very finely milled powder that feels like silk to the touch and blends easily on the skin. It never looks powdery or heavy, and it always looks natural once applied. My only complaint is that it tends to fade after six to eight hours, rather than lasting a full eight to ten hours.
It reminded me of Burberry Cameo which leans a little plum.
