Chanel Chamade (67) Le Blush Creme de Chanel
Chanel Chamade (67) Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “deep pink.” It looks rather red in the pan, and applied, it’s more like a reddish-pink with subtle cool undertones and a satin-matte finish. It is extremely pigmented; as in, a couple pats of color onto the cheeks is plenty for fair to medium complexions. The consistency is lightweight, creamy initially, but it quickly sets to a soft, powdery texture that is easy to blend out on the skin. It lasted well for nine hours on me before showing signs of fading. Chanel Affinite (65) (P, $38.00) is much lighter. MAC Keep It Casual (LE, $20.00) is darker, warmer. Chanel Rouge (LE, $43.00) is powder and more shimmery. Burberry Hydrangea Pink (P, $42.00) is slightly pinker, powder. See comparison swatches.
Intonation (69) Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “warm rose.” It’s a pink-tinted coral with a satin-matte finish and warm undertones. This was incredibly rich in color payoff, so a little goes a long way, but the lighter color (in general) makes it easier to blend out if you over-apply. When I wore it, the color lasted well for just over nine hours. If Presage was too orange, you might love Intonation. MAC Autoerotique (LE, $25.00) is a powder, lighter. NARS Day Dream (LE, $29.00) is a powder, slightly lighter. Too Faced Melt Into Spring (LE) is also a powder and is pinker. Tom Ford Beauty Flush (P, $55.00) is brighter, powder. Burberry Blossom (P, $42.00) is less pink, powder. See comparison swatches.
