Chanel Presage (62) Le Blush Creme de Chanel ($38.00 for 0.09 oz.) is described as an “apricot.” It’s a medium-dark orange with a hint of rosy pink in it and a satiny finish–not quite matte, but not really shimmery–really a natural-looking finish. Edward Bess Secret Affair is pinker, powder. MAC Ripe for Love is more shimmery, powder. MAC Fiery Impact is darker, powder. Illamasqua Rude is a touch brighter but very similar. Dior Coral Glow is lighter, powder. Chanel Frivole is darker, powder. Le Metier de Beaute Coral Nymph is lighter. Burberry Blossom is pinker, powder. See comparison swatches.

Presage had very rich, true-to-pan color payoff that applies easily at full intensity or can be applied with a very light hand for a sheerer/softer look (just use less). The nice thing about the formula is it has a lightly creamy, thin consistency that blends out very readily, even if you apply more than you wanted. The texture feels creamy in the pan, but as soon as you apply it to the skin, it feels more like powder–with just the smallest amount of slip–that makes it easy to blend. I’ve used an assortment of duo-fibre, stippling brushes, and they’ve all worked well with the blush formula (like MAC’s 188, 159, 131, 187). I wore this shade yesterday, and it wore quite well and lasted eight hours on bare skin with minor fading noticeable after eight and a half hours, and then nine hours of good wear over foundation with slight, but noticeable, fading after ten hours.

Another beauty from this line of Chanel blushes.. I actually have Illamasqua Rude already in my collection so this one is less tempting than some of the others. Looks great on you, Christine!

Reminds me a bit of MAC Early Morning (though EM is pinker, I’m sure, and also a powder) which is too warm to be a good shade on me so this one would be a total “no go” for me. Apricot and peach are just not shades that work for me as blushes since I tend to blush very pink/rosy.

I’ve been using this blush for 3 weeks now and I absolutely LOVE it. Best blush I’ve ever used. Funnily enough, I had been pondering Illamasqua’s Rude and MAC’s Ripe for Love, but Presage has taken my mind off those. I’ll probably buy another as extra when it is finally released in the UK 🙂

I tried all of these recently and wasn’t hugely wowed. Nearly bought one to try out at home….until i realizes i was getting about 2 1/2 grams of product. It wasn’t great enough to justify the insane price to product amount ratio.

It’s so pigmented, I don’t see it going quickly – but on the other end is that cream products have a shorter shelf-life, so you don’t really want a lot (technically). I totally hear you – because Chanel’s not going to lower the price regardless of what quantity they put into it, so it can feel small.
