Oh Chanel, how I adore you! Whenever I think luxury, I think Chanel. It’s a brand that I’ve grown up with, seeing my mum dab Chanel No.5 onto her wrists as a little girl, I couldn’t wait to be big enough to have my own (although I was once caught splashing it on my neck age seven…sorry mum!) My first ever taste of Chanel was a red lipstick my best friend Holly bought me for my 21st birthday and now in my mid twenties I’ve acquired quite the collection!

Today I’m talking all about the gorgeous ‘Joues Contraste Powder Blush’ and in particular the shade – ‘Fleur de Lotus.’ It’s a peachy/pinky coral colour that gives my cheeks a lovely pop whenever applied and leaves a luminescent sheen to my skin. When applying you’ll need a light hand so to not go overboard and end up with clown cheeks! The brush however is super soft and helps to evenly distribute the powder providing perfect blend-ability.

Now as with all Chanel beauty products, the packaging is classic and chic. A simple black compact with the signature double C gracing the front. It’s petite and fits perfectly into all of my handbags, with bonus points for having a mirror inside…always handy for any quick-dash fix ups! 

So if you’re in the market for a little luxury this christmas and want to add some rosy to those lovely cheeks of yours, I say save, splash out and grab yourself a Joues Contraste Powder Blush. You don’t use a lot per application so it lasts a good while and is a lovely treat, be it for yourself or fora loved one.
