Chanel Vivacite (88) Joues Contraste Blush ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a brightened, fuchsia-berry with cool, blue undertones and a satin-matte finish. There’s a barely-there sheen that becomes more noticeable when the blush is really buffed into the skin. Clinique Plum Pop (04) (P, $21.00)is lighter, more shimmery. Guerlain Cherry (02) (LE, $42.00) is a cream product. NARS Coeur Battant (LE, $29.00) is darker, brighter. NARS Angelika (P, $29.00) is slightly lighter, more muted, and has sparkle. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture of the blush feels very finely-milled, but it also seems somewhat dry, so it doesn’t stick to skin well unless you’ve used a primer, liquid/cream foundation, or have normal-to-oily skin (any of these gives the powder blush something to adhere to). Since it doesn’t adhere well, the color payoff is semi-opaque but not buildable to full color coverage. It blended decently, but I wish that it was more blendable, as a richer shade like this can be more challenging to apply and blend to an even, smooth layer of color as a result. Once on, the blush wore well for seven and a half hours before starting to fade.
