Chanel Fantastic (66) Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as a “burgundy.” It looks like a deeper, plummy red in the pan, but applied, it takes on a pinky-plum coloring with a natural, not-quite-matte finish. It has cool, bluish undertones. If you worried that Chanel Affinite would be too similar, it is lighter and warmer. Tom Ford Narcissist is similar but shimmery (and a powder). Burberry Hydrangea Pink is slightly redder and a powder product. See comparison swatches.

The color payoff is fantastic (ha, ha) with rich, full color coverage that’s buildable and blendable. It’s easy to go overboard, so use a light hand and less than you think you’ll need. The consistency is lightly creamy and almost turns to a powdery feeling as soon as it hits the skin, but it’s not truly a powder. It remains lightly blendable and is very easy to sheer out and soften along the edges while maintaining even coloring. I could see this shade working well across all skin tones. When I wore this, the blush lasted a full nine hours without fading, and even after ten hours, there was only very slight signs of fading.

WOW! What a colour! I am almost breathless just looking at it. I daresay this is one you have to be careful with so you don’t end up looking like you’re running a raging fever!

Of any of the shades I’ve seen reviewed, this one has me the most excited. I really want to try one of them and I think that this is going to be it.

What kind of a brush would you suggest using with this formula? It looks great, but I’m not entirely sure how I’ll apply it. Generally I use powder brushes with an ordinary blush brush or stippling brush, and I’ll apply cream blushes with my fingers.

Oh, your complexion turns more chocolate now, guess you have a wonderful summer this year.

Do you think people can use a lipstick or a blush interchangeably?

Hi, nice color! Could these blushes be applied by finger? I am a little confused by the “creme” in the title. In the pan they look like powder. Thank you.
