Chanel Fleur de Lotus Joues Contraste / Blush
Chanel Fleur de Lotus Joues Contraste / Blush ($43.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “joyful color.” It’s a warm coral with a hint of pink and a satiny sheen. This is definitely a color we’ve seen pop up several times over the year. MAC Fleet Fast is similar, slightly darker and has a more golden sheen. Tom Ford Flush is brighter, more matte in finish. theBalm Frat Boy is pinker. Tarte Blissful is a touch pinker, brighter, and more matte.
This shade is a Nordstrom exclusive, and it’s a very pretty, summery coral with a lovely sheen that gives the face a warm, ethereal glow. While it seems pigmented enough, it’s hard to build up color on the cheeks, so it’s not a blusher I’d recommend for medium-dark to dark skin tones. It delivers both subtle and more medium color, so for those with paler complexions, it is easy to use without fear of going overboard. The texture is soft, finely-milled, and not powdery. It feels like silk against the skin and lies beautifully once applied. Fleur de Lotus is also extremely blendable and wore for eight hours without fading.
