Chanel Brun Roussi Blush Lumiere Review & Swatches
Chanel Brun Roussi Blush Lumiere ($70.00 for 0.49 oz.) is a darker, reddish-copper with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a firmer, moderately-dense texture that felt like a gel-powder hybrid to me, which meant that it had to be used with a denser brush to get an even pickup of color (due to the surface being firmer), but the color released readily and deposited well onto bare skin.
It had opaque color payoff that diffused with ease on bare skin as well as over foundation. The more I buffed and blended out the color, the more satiny the finish became. This shade stayed on nicely for nine hours before fading visibly.

Beautiful but considering that this isn’t one of the easiest colours for me to wear, it becomes too rich for my blood!
I salivated. Then checked the dupes. TG the surface on take it away let me know I have the closest dupe. Yay. Full stop.
Gorgeous! I really love how this one doesn’t translate as orange as it appears in the pan once applied to the cheeks. It does remind me very much of my old MAC Pleasure Model blush, however. So I do feel ‘spared’ $70!
Hey, that looks gorgeous on you!
Hey! Sorry to bother you again but I didn’t see the lipstick you’re wearing in the look breakdown. Would appreciate if you’re willing to indulge my curiosity. 🙂

Looks pretty on you! Glad this scored well. This blush was just delivered to me. Can’t wait to wear it. I didn’t get anything else from the Chanel Spring collection, but the blushes are gorgeous.
Thanks, Denise! Hope you love the blush.
Now that looks gorgeous on and it is has a beautiful soft finish too.
I bought both these blushes and love them. But the orange one is too orange. The brush that comes with it doesn’t do justice to the blush. Am not getting anything else. Glad that it looks lovely on you
Very much loving the two Chanel blush releases with this collection.
I love the finish! So nice to see the gel-powder hybrid with a satiny bent rather than fuller shimmer (like MAC Extra Dimensions).
This is a beautiful blush shade that applies and blends beautifully. I found it to be nicely buildable using the airy 2017 Wayne Goss Holiday Brush made from blue squirrel bristles, which I reach for when using pigmented blushes. I also tried Wayne’s Brush 12 (tightly bound undyed goat hair) and it applied more pigment yet still buildable. For dupes, I reached for the original Tom Ford Savage and found Brun Roussi to be more red in undertone and Savage more coppery. On my skintone, which is light with pink undertones, Savage stands out more because the formula is immensely pigmented in comparison and the copper cuts through the reddy shade where Brun Roussi adds brown-red and luminosity. Brun Roussi pairs nicely with the collection’s Baume Essential in spite of it’s iridescent pink shade.
I want it but that price … I seems more expensive than other blushes from them . I saw that this one is huge with 14g .
Looks perfect on you! I like this color. It doesn’t at all seem too much or too dark on.
