Chanel Fandago blush ($42) temporarily helped me forget that it’s cold enough outside to freeze my butt bones.
After two layers I felt like winter had ended. There was a flush to my cheeks that I hadn’t seen in months, and I felt like I’d spent the afternoon twirling through sun dappled fields o’ flowers.
As the only blush released with Chanel’s Spring 2009 Bohemian Fantasy Collection, Fandango, a shimmery pink and brown, applies with intense color that really brings out the brown in my skin. To avoid dark, muddy cheeks, I layered it slowly with a MAC 187 skunk brush, trying to use a light touch.
With my skin tone, I settled on two layers, but lighter skinned beauties may want to try just a single layer applied lightly with a fan brush.

Unfortunately, like nearly all Chanel products, Fandango costs an arm and a leg, but anything that helps me see past the gloomy winter weather gets a YEE-HAW from me.
