Chanel Tweed Coralline & Tweed Cherry Blossom Les Tissages de Chanel Blushes Reviews, Photos, Swatches
Chanel Tweed Coralline Les Tissages de Chanel Blush ($48.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a bright, medium coral with a hint of pink and a satin finish. The finish was naturally luminous without reading shimmery, frosted, or sparkly.
Very long-time readers may remember this blush type releasing many moons ago–I feel like it has been ages since I have seen this pattern emerge from Chanel’s archives! The formula is described as a “sheer blush harmony” that is “woven with shimmering powder.” I’d love to know if the person who wrote that description actually tried either of the shades just made available, because they are anything but sheer. In fact, Coralline is intensely pigmented where a little went a long way–I would highly recommend using a lighter hand or a more feathery, less dense blush brush when working with these to control coverage. The texture was soft, smooth without being dusty, and blended easily on my skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading.
If you normally love pigmented blushes, I think it might be right up your alley! If you were hoping for the “sheer blush harmony” Chanel described, the formula’s pigmentation level may be overwhelming.

Tweed Cherry Blossom
Chanel Tweed Cherry Blossom Les Tissages de Chanel Blush ($48.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a dark, pinky red with cool undertones and a satin finish. There was just enough shimmer to give this a natural look on the skin–not flat but not metallic or distinctly shimmered. The powder was finely-milled, soft enough to blend out well but not kick up a ton of powder in the pan, but it was incredibly pigmented–contrary to the “sheer blush harmony” description–that little was needed for a visible pop of color. I preferred a fan brush or highlighting brush with this shade, as it gave me better control. This shade lasted for nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

These look so pigmented! Love it. I want to try Coralline one of these days. My skin’s quite a bit warmer then yours, I’d like to know how it works on me!
They are very intense!
Definitely not sheer, but gorgeous, especially the coral.
Haha, yes, so not sheer!
Uh oh, these have no perfume added, but thank goodness for dupes!
Since I already have UD Quiver on my ever burgeoning wishlist, I am safe to say no to Cherry Blossom.
However, Coralline looks like Nyx’s Pinched and a few other similar shades on steroids! WOW!!! I love it! ?
Both shades are very pretty!
Yay, thanks for the details on these blushes! I love a blush with intense pigmentation =) And the “tweed” pattern is too cute. I might have to pick up Coralline!
This will work well for you if you like pigmented blush! 🙂
Cherry Blossom has to be mine. I so rarely go crazy for anything anymore, I know it must be love. Gotta get it. No choice. Done.
Enjoy it, Anne!
Sweet Christmas, these are pigmented AF. I’m not even sure I could make them worth with a fan brush but they do seem look nice on.
Hi Erin, Tarababyz on YouTube was wearing the Cherry Blossom blush in a recent video and described it looking like a natural flush when applied with a light hand. She used a little on her forehead. She’s pretty fair, too.
As lovely as they are I really think these are too intense for most people, hard to control that much color, maybe on dark skin tones? I would never even think of getting blushes like these since my most challenging make up task is to get blush just right: to show up but in a natural way.
There are definitely all shades of skin tones who like pigmented blush, so it is really just a preference, I think! 🙂
I like Cherry Blossom a lot. It doesn’t seem too dupeable either as there are only 4 dupes listed.
This is one I’ll have to try on. I think it’s a very “me-colour” 🙂
It isn’t! There are some dupes, but there aren’t too many ranges with red blushes in them!
SO pigmented! ?. I love the effect these give!
They are sooo intense!
“sheer blush harmony”???? How ’bout “slapped on with a trowel blush intensity” (hey, maybe I could get a job writing truthful copy for Chanel….or probably not). Cherry is truly beautiful but just too intense. I don’t think the beauty of it would compensate for the work of having to buff it out, wipe away with a tissue and the worry of leaving the house looking like a painted dolly. I think I’ll stick with UD Quiver or MAC Never Say Never.
It is bizarre, right? Like they are not sheer in any sense of the word!
Very, very pigmented and bright!
They are both bold shades!
It’s already sold out at chanel.com. Do you know if they will restock and if it will come to other stores (Nordstrom etc also say it’s sold out)?
I really have no idea 🙁 They’re listed as a Chanel.com exclusive.
Half the time I think I buy CHANEL products for the packaging and the stunning embossing itself! Love the shade although it seems fairly dupeable!
The design is very nice!
I agree with you, Christina. The blush is extremely pigmented. I have Coralline. I like the color so I will just use a lighter hand when applying it. I was a little disappointed in the look of the blush. Pictures of it made it look very pretty. When I first opened it the pattern was kind of … meh. I do like the color, which is the most important thing, so I will keep it and enjoy it. Thanks for always giving us an honest review.
That is too bad that the pattern didn’t wow you in person! I’m glad the product itself is working for you, at least!
These are visually stunning, but I’m heavy-handed enough with my blushes as-is! 😉 It’s nice to see some dupes out there — I might have to pick up the NYX Apricot!
I hear ya 😉 I like a more medium to semi-opaque coverage level myself.
There’s a tutorial on the Chanel website and the way the model used Tweed Cherry Blossom I thought it would be light and sheer.
The French Chanel site has six color versions of these and some of them look very light. Wish the lighter colors had been made available to the U.S.
Soooo not sheer, lol!
Who would think that color would be so beautiful..!!! Your complexion wears it well….Im gonna check out the dupes…NYX Pinched and Apricot. Im in need if a coral shade blush. I’ve got mainly pinks and berry colors.
Thank you, Jo Anne!
Yay right up my alley!
Christine, I just looked at swatches of Cherry Blossom and MAC Frankly Scarlet side by side using the “any two” feature and FS looks a fair bit like Cherry Blossom in the swatches (with FS being somewhat warmer). I don’t have Cherry Blossom to compare them “in the flesh”, though, and wanted your opinion before submitting Frankly Scarlet as a possible dupe (maybe in the 80% range). What do you think, since you have them both?
Frankly Scarlet is definitely warmer, which is why I didn’t include it (the undertone difference is too great in my eyes) myself as a dupe!
Far too intense for my tastes on my cheeks, but I love the cherry blush.. it’s so beautifully lush
Yeah, they’re more intense than what I’d normally reach for for fun!
I love both of these blushes. I usually buff off extra product onto my wrist and then go to the face so the fact that these are really pigmented doesn’t bother me. I am headed to Seattle on Saturday and am hoping that I can see these while I am there. They sure sold out quickly on the Chanel website.
Great tiip, Deborah!
These look lovely. Between this collection and the summer releases, I think my $ will be going to Chanel. I have especially enjoyed your eye makeup in these posts, Christine.
Thank you, Tracey!
Christine, I received the Tweed Cherry Blossom yesterday and I had a chance to test it this morning; as you said, it is very pigmented and you must have a light hand. However, on me it does not show as pigmented as on you (I am fair skin). I used an Elf blush brush; I tapped a couple of times with one side of the brush and then with a single swipe I applied the blush on my cheeks;. I went for a second swipe to build it up. The result was subtle and very natural. I followed this method after watching a Japanese blogger on YT applying the Chanel blushes with a brush similar to the Elf one.
I didn’t apply mine very lightly for photos, since I wanted to show the depth and tone of it better, and it needs to show up on camera! If you are using a very light hand, it seems to make sense that it wouldn’t be as pigmented right away so good to hear that it is working.
