Chanel Jersey (80) Joue Contraste Blush ($46.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a muted, peachy brown with subtle gold shimmer. Guerlain Petrouchka #8 (LE) is a touch lighter, more shimmery. MAC Make You Mine (P, $23.50) is darker, redder. Makeup Geek Infatuation (P, $9.99) is warmer, less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless (220) (P, $30.00) is lighter. Chanel Cheeky (79) (LE, $38.00) is darker, cooler-toned, cream. Charlotte Tilbury The Climax (P, $40.00) is more shimmery, warmer. Charlotte Tilbury First Love (P, $40.00) is lighter, browner. NARS Soulshine #2 (LE, $29.00) is slightly more shimmery. MAC Seasonal Appeal (LE, $21.00) is darker, warmer. MAC Eternal Sun (P, $23.50) is darker, warmer. Chanel Espiegle (DC, $45.00) is lighter, more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

I believe this came out somewhat recently, though I can’t recall exactly when, and Chanel’s website lists it as permanent. I was expecting to buy the new, holiday shade, but Nordstrom didn’t have it in yet (they just put it up when I checked last night–bought it, but it’ll take a few days before it arrives to me here on the west coast!), so I thought it might be a good time to try and review this shade. The texture was very soft and silky, but it didn’t seem powdery, and it blended out beautifully on the skin. It felt nearly effortless to apply, as the pigmentation was good (but not so intense that the barest touch of the brush gets too much product in one go) and easily diffused along the edges. It’s warm without being red or strongly orange, and the soft shimmer gives the finish a satiny glow that doesn’t emphasize pores. On me, the color wore well for almost eight hours before fading.

Hey Christine, Jersey is lovely on you!

If this helps, here in Europe, Jersey came out with the new Vitalumiere Loose Powder Foundation a while ago, but I was told it’s LE. There was another Joues Contraste that came out at the same time called Rose Glacier, but I’ve been told it isn’t in the US (no idea if it’ll make it there later).

I’m so happy that this got a good review! I’ve been thinking about getting a darker peach blush for winter and I love Chanel’s blushes–totally worth the splurge.

Oh I actually really like this colour – I think it’d be a great easy everyday kind of blush on me. Probably hold out, at least for now though – really don’t need another blush.

I think Jersey is a little older, maybe like a year. For some reason I feel it was holiday or fall last year. I just had this used on me in my Chanel makeover. On me it’s more pink and terracotta somehow at the same time. I really like it because I was having a mild to moderate Rosacea flare before the makeover and this just made it look non-existent. It really muted the red/violet flushing I get and made me look slightly warmed up and glowy. The shimmer didn’t accent the bumps either. It’s also great for a smoky eye look because it’s not too much.

I soooo adore this blush. But I don’t trust YouTube. Yeah, it’s PERFECT. And, do you look so freaking beautiful like that everyday? This is so lovely on you and your total look, (what’s on your lips?), is so natural.. Stunning! (Passing on MUFE case btw ha) I wonder if my old Chanel Joues Contraste Blushes are similar.. Back then, peach and brown, include some gold shimmer, was in every blush. But they looked different in pan. Now they are more similar to how they swatch.. Hmm… The Guerlsin palette grows on me yet I doubt the blush will be this good. I’m eager for the rest of Chanel Holiday!!! (I thought I missed it) Bring it, Chanel! 😉

I am almost positive this is LE. The counter manager at the Chanel near me said that it was LE and they were not getting another shipment in. When I tried to order it online about 2 weeks ago the only place that had it was Neiman Marcus online

I have a question into Chanel.com CS as well as PR, but I haven’t heard back yet (I sent it mid-Friday, so with the weekend, it isn’t likely I’ll get an answer yet!), so all I know is that it is listed under Chanel’s regular blushes on their site (whereas they have two other shades under “Limited Edition”). I saw it in stock online at Chanel, Nordstrom, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdale’s this past week – I just checked now and all those still seem to have it in stock.

Sleek blush in Suede might be a cheap dupe, but it has no shimmer. Good natural shade for many skin tones, possible contour shade for fair skins.

Just bought this a day or so ago from Nordies and should have it by Monday — can’t wait to try it out! It looks stunning on you,, Christine! Love the subtle shimmer!

Christiane Avatar

love this shade.Thank you for the swatches, Christine! I am not so much in Chanel, but I think I will buy it. In Germany it is listed in the permanent range, but still not available …

I love CHANEL Joues Contraste blushes. They are one of my favorites. This color is absolutely gorgeous, it is lovely on you and I’m gonna purchase it for sure!

I almost passed on Jersey however I decided to just get it, and boy am I glad I did.
I use it as a blush base and sometimes on its own. I’m a NW 25 in winter and nw35 in summer.
I’m thinking bout picking up another one as its LE and I don’t know if I could cope without this in my life!

Rebecca Avatar

Dear Christine,

This looks beautiful on you! I’m thinking of getting it as well. Were you able to find out if it is LE or standard in their collection?

Thank you so much!

Hi Christine, I am an avid reader of your blog. 🙂
I really want to buy this Chanel blush, but is it similar to Tom Ford Love Lust (01)?
