Rose Tourbillon (67)

Chanel Rose Tourbillon (67) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and a soft pearl finish.

The Joues Contraste Blush formula is supposed to have a “silky, delicate texture” with “buildable coverage” that gives a “radiant glow.” This is one of four exclusives to Chanel’s website, though it has been released before (but I don’t remember having it). It had medium, buildable coverage with a soft, silky consistency that seemed thin in then pan but worked well in practice. The shimmer in the finish became more pronounced as I buffed and blended the color onto cheeks, but it looked like a smooth, pearly sheen rather than a more textured, metallic finish. The color lasted well for eight hours on me before fading.

Formula Overview

$45.00/0.17 oz. - $264.71 Per Ounce

The Joues Contraste formula is supposed to have “buildable coverage, from natural to dramatic” with a “flattering radiance” and “silky texture.” The pigmentation ranges from semi-sheer to fully opaque, depending on technique and skin tone, but it seemed exactly as described–buildable–without having to pile it on or spend too long sheering it out. The formula has an extremely smooth, silky consistency that blends out beautifully on the skin. Most shades wear around eight hours on me.

The formula is rose-scented but the scent was largely undetectable applied (but noticeable in the compact).

I got to see this when I went to Chicago last weekend and I want it. I am hoping it will still be available in December, as I am planning to use my November beauty budget at The Sephora sale.

Oh silly me, I saw Hyperfresh, not Rose Tourbillion. The bright color confused me, lol. This one is beautiful too, maybe even prettier than Hyperfresh. I want all the bright blushes?

Rose Tourbillon–an oldie but goodie! It was originally released five years ago as part of the Asian Le Blanc collection that was later picked up by Nordstrom for their Anniversary Sale. It was a very pretty and intense candy pink with a hint of sparkle. I had to use a fan brush to apply it otherwise I looked feverish. I no longer have the original as I purge makeup on a regular basis, but from your pictures, the re-release appears to be much the same as the original.

I have a couple of the Joues Contraste Blushes and I really like them but the ones that I have are super pigmented and I have to be careful to use a lite hand or I end up looking like a clown. I usually really buff off on my wrist and then apply. They wear really well for me also.
