Chanel Pink Explosion Joues Contraste Blush
To complement the dark, smokey eyes and soft lips of fall’s Les Contrastes de Chanel makeup collection, Chanel crafted three of the most beautiful Joues Contraste Powder Blushes ($42) I’ve seen from the line in a really long time. I mean, just look at ’em in their pans!
Rose Temptation (a warm and shimmery rosy brown), Plum Attraction (a shimmery deep plum) and Pink Explosion (a shimmery cool pink) wow me in ways that last year’s Fresque didn’t.
All three of the new limited edition shades pack off-the-charts pigmentation yet still look pretty natural at the same time. The recipe Chanel used of subtle, shimmery powders and buttery, blendable colors just works, and like previously released blushes in the Joues Contraste line, all of them have the subtle signature JC rose scent.

I think Chanel’s having a major makeup moment with Les Contrastes de Chanel, and for me these three new blushes solidify the collection’s position as a front runner for fall 2010.
What do you think of these shades and Les Contrastes de Chanel so far?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Onward to Friday (YES!), and it couldn’t come soon enough. How was your Thursday? Anything new to report? Question: are you familiar with Pacifica’s Hawaiian Ruby Guava Body Butter? Can you tell me anything about it?
