Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose

Chanel Jardin de Chanel Blush Camelia Rose ($55.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “duo of pinks.” It’s a light-medium, muted pink with subtle, neutral-to-warm undertones and a semi-matte finish. It seems to have less sheen than a satin, but it’s not quite matte once it is blended and buffed on the skin. MAC Modest Blush (LE, $27.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Pink Sprinkles (LE, $21.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Lesson in Love (LE, $21.00) is a touch lighter, cooler. Chanel Innocence (160) (P, $45.00) is warmer. MAC Cheeky Bugger (LE, $21.00) is very similar. Divergent Misty Rose (LE) is darker, warmer. Make Up For Ever #330 HD Blush (P, $26.00) is a cream product. NARS Love (LE, $29.00) is warmer, darker. bareMinerals Glamour (LE, $19.00) is similar. MAC Formal (LE) is slightly cooler-toned. Urban Decay Overexposed (LE) is similar. theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is darker, cooler-toned. NYX Mauve (P, $5.00) is similar. NYX Dusty Rose (P, $5.00) is slightly darker. MAC At Dusk (LE, $25.00) is darker. Illamasqua Naked Rose (P, $26.00) is cooler-toned. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture is finely-milled, but it’s also a little firm, particularly in comparison to Chanel’s blushes and cheek products. It had decent to good, somewhat buildable pigmentation, though it is a subtler shade. I’m medium (about NC25/NC30), and it is subtle on my skin tone, so it might be one to try in-store for those with similar or darker skin tones. I would also recommend using a smaller blush brush, as a larger one didn’t seem to swirl quite as well in the pan, so it applied the colors unevenly. I noticed this more because the blush itself didn’t blend as effortlessly as many Chanel blushes do. On me, the color lasted for seven and a half hours before fading. I was surprised to see it only contained 0.10 oz., whereas a regular blush contains 0.21 oz., though the compact itself is the same size as the Joues Contraste blushes.

Definitely nothing wrong with it from a collecting perspective, but it’s not too much bigger than a quarter and for me I prefer I can get my brushes in comfortably. Plus I don’t mind powder blushes sticking around for a long time and this one is particularly tiny for the price. That plus performance issues makes me want to avoid it. But it is definitely a lovely bit of collector prettiness so I bet plenty of others will enjoy it πŸ™‚ I love the Chanel LE highlighters and collecting those so I get the appeal for sure.

Very good point! I bet your highlighter collection is beautiful! This is too much to spend as I have been limiting my collecting because it’s overtly ridiculous for me! I don’t wear makeup everyday, and not even every week, so I figured it being small is a plus for that, yet using it so rarely at that price is just poor planning when trying to spend little money wisely! There are beautiful dupes and I’m sure I probably already have a handful that would do! (Shameful)

Thank you so much for your comment in response! It made me THINK. I love this, and as you said, from a collector’s standpoint, understandable, but otherwise unnecessary. I bet you like Cargo blushes! Big pans to swirl in! πŸ˜€ If nothing shows up that I feel I need for my cheeks, I will still keep this in mind yet I won’t forget the price! Ha! πŸ™‚

Mostly the utter vastness of my NARS blush collection prevents me from lusting too hard after anything else πŸ˜‰ Truly I have an absurd amount of NARS blushes. Including my beloved unicorn, Coeur Battant. This is definitely the kind of item where you’re absolutely in love with it or just can’t fathom how little it is. Polarizing products are always interesting πŸ™‚

And THANK YOU for the kind response! <3

Oh my goodness! Mimi, are you referring to my enabling? Oh, I’m so sorry! Please, don’t hurt your bank for a sliver of blush the size of a quarter! I can’t be responsible for that! :/

It looks fairly pretty but it isn’t wowing me. For the prices ChaneI charge I want something of quality and this doesn’t sound as though it’s up to scratch. I’m disappointed by the fact that you get so little product too. I think I’ll be passing on this one although seeing it at the counter and trying it for myself may change my mind!

Inspite of the said stiffness and the color being a bit pale for skintones like mine I still WANT this! How pretty is that design!

Oh, my! What a most elegant yet light & lovely way to begin the year! This is STUNNING to me in every way possible and you, Christine, your whole look is GORGOUS! I kind of mind the ad about a music service that keeps taking over my entire screen when cookies are allowed, but this is worth it! If time & money permits, I will most definitely love to purchase this! This is absolutely perfect for me, my skin coloring, and my winter craves! πŸ˜€ Thank you for such a charming review, beautiful! πŸ™‚ (That ad.. Can you please work on making it tamer? πŸ˜›

When you say takes over the screen, what do you mean? Are you hovering over it by chance? The ads we have should be primarily user initiated, no auto-play audio. There are ads that will push down content, but they shouldn’t overlay. Could you send me a screen shot?

hi christine! tis’ the season that i could possibly not wear chanel or, at least not buy chanel exclusively. this blush has been so hyped and all over the internet (as you probably know) but, i’ve been anxiously awaiting your review because you are always right!! this blush was applied to me when i was trying on the spring collection. i should have known when the sales associate said, “can i apply more?” after she gave me the mirror. i tend to like alot of blush. i’m very pale, not quite a 10 in their foundations. and, i didn’t see anything. i know a few “chanelphiles” who collect and have purchased multiple backups of this blush. but, i use makeup, everyday, and right down to the silver pan. i’ve been so disappointed with chanel for awhile. i do believe if you’re paying this much money there should be very high quality and i’m just not seeing it anymore. i wonder if anyone else feels this way. i really am not sure what makeup to wear anymore? i do not like their new eyeshadow formula. but, i know people have raved about them. i feel they lack in pigmentation and lasting power compared to the old formula.

Sorry to hear you haven’t been enjoying any of the newer Chanel releases, Wendy! I wasn’t impressed with this blush, though I did like their new eyeshadow formula (some quads are better than others), luckily!

Are there any other brands you’ve wanted to try? Maybe Guerlain or YSL?

i used to love ysl back in the day when terry gunzburg (omg…did i butcher her name? you know the chickie who owns by terry now) was creative director. love, love guerlain. both brands tend to have lots of fragrance and alcohol in their products so, i try to steer clear . although chanel does too! maybe tom ford or armani will have something that should surely work. otherwise, searching for discontinued products from chanel. the ladies at macy’s are always searching in the drawers when i’m there! xo.

On my NC15 complexion this actually provides a beautiful flush of warm rosΓ©. I use my “kitten’s paw” Suqque blush brush and can’t say I’ve had any issues with it in regards to application. Since I never use up an entire blusher, that it weighs less than a regular JC doesn’t bother me in the least. Face it, we’re paying a premium for the creativity and beautiful execution of the design. If someone doesn’t care about such things, Chanel makes loads of other gorgeous JCs.

Glad you like it, Eileen! I tried blending with various brushes, including SUQQU’s, but didn’t find any to be better/worse. SUQQU’s brush barely picked up product – had to use something else to work with the texture of mine, unfortunately.

One of the blessings and curses of being fair is that it doesn’t take a lot of product to get the desired effect. It also helps that I have a bit of natural rosiness to my cheeks–I think of it as permablush! πŸ™‚

I found Wayne Goss #11 was the one I could use that still gave some color payoff but wasn’t rough on the skin. I tried Chikuhodo/SUQQU, but they’re just too soft for this texture.

What a gorgeous imprint! I love the look of the blush, in the pan, and I also like the look of the swatch, but it’s too bad that it’s an underperformer. $45 is still the most I have spent on a blush, and I have yet to reach that $55 pricepoint, lol.

I have Chanel Rose Petale and Burberry Peony, and they’re both purchases that I regret a bit. They’re nice and all, but the fragrance bothers me, and the formula doesn’t wow me that much more than a lot of the $20-$30 blushes that I have. I reserve them for special occasions, because they do feel a bit fancier than the rest, but I don’t use them for everyday wear.

It’s so pretty in the pan. I wonder if the formula has to be stiffer to hold the embossed pattern? That’s a lot of money for a tiny amount of blush. If I were rich, I’d buy it to keep next to the Camelia de Plumes highlighter with the beautiful embossing. But for now, I’ll stick with Pink Sprinkles.

This is what I assumed too. The pattern is really the selling point since it’s more of a collector’s item so the stiffness is probably helpful to keep the petals up. It would look beautiful next to Camelia de Plumes and the first time I saw this I definitely thought maybe just as a vanity item. But hot damn it is SO SMALL. Too little for me.

The floral print is beyond stunning. I want it just so I can stare at it on my vanity all day lol. It would be perfect if it was a little darker

i would buy it instantly if it were a print or photo that i could frame and put on the wall. of course it would have to be 11×14″ at the very least. or maybe a textured pillow for the boudoir. but $55 for 0.1 oz? i think not.

I love the print but I hate the fact it’s less product. I also don’t like the fact that it’s hard and not as bendable. Innocence is warmer, but It’s fairly close. I think I’d go with it instead.

it’s gorgeous but too bad about the performance quality. i can forgive the high price for a small amount of product for the gorgeous design but performance issues are where i draw the line for luxury items!

It’s a gorgeous colour at least – I’m sure it would show up on my vampire face, hah! To be honest, if I had the monoey, I would totally buy it just as an objet d’art, and never, ever touch the actual blush. I’d just have it on my vanity and open it to admire every so often ^_^. So in that sense, it kind of doesn’t matter that it’s not up to Chanel’s usual blush standards. On the other hand, it’s kind of silly that it isn’t. I mean – why not? Some people are actually going to want to, you know, *use* the blush, Chanel…

I didn’t realise it was so small – but like others have said, I still want it, hehe. Yeah, I’m a sucker for the presentation. πŸ™‚

Tried these and hated them, along with a few other Chanel spring collection pieces I made the mistake of purchasing. They were so hard & stiff I had a very difficult time even getting a swatch of them. The pigmentation was absolutely dismal. Add to that the ridiculously minute amount of product you get – they felt & looked like those fake demo products some brands will put out for display – and these 2 blushes are embarrassments. I sure hope Chanel isn’t going the way of MAC…..meaning sucking beyond sucking dogs bollocks, because that will be yet another brand I walk right on by when I’m shopping.
