Chanel Star Dust Joues Contraste
Chanel Star Dust Joues Contraste

Chanel Star Dust Joues Contraste ($43.00 for 0.21 oz.) is described as a “shimmering soft pink.” It’s a pale, yellow-toned pink with golden shimmer and sparkle. NARS Undress Me is actually similar in color, but it has chunky glitter in it. MAC Launch Away is darker, brighter. MAC Crew is a little darker. MAC Flower Fantasy is more frosted. Chanel Brompton Road is very similar. Chanel Pink Cloud is similar–more frosted. Benefit Hervana is a little darker and matte.

It’s a really pale color even in the pan, so it’s only going to be a blusher on light complexions. On medium to dark complexions, it’ll be more of a highlighter. It’s true-to-pan color–it’s just so light in the pan that it’s not going to work as a blush for some–but it never looked chalky on.

The texture is so, so soft–like silk–and finely-milled! It applied smoothly and was a cinch to blend out.  I was extremely surprised with the way this looked on the skin, because the sparkle-content worried me.  It was almost like wearing a Glossimer but made for cheeks–it had a very refined, subtle quality.  A little dazzle, a little zing, but it wasn’t chunky or gritty or really glittery on.  It did not emphasize pores either.  I wore this twice last week, and both times, it lasted for eight hours without fading.

The Glossover


Star Dust

A really well-done blush with sparkle; it doesn't overdo it and has a subtle, sparkling effect that works beautifully on the skin. It can work as a blush or highlighter on light skin tones, but it will be more of a highlighter for medium to dark skin tones.
