Chanel Blush / Reflex


I don't own many Chanel products, but this blush is a real gem in my collection and I absolutely love it. I received it as a Valentine's Day gift a year ago and I mentioned it in many blog posts already, but for some reason I haven't reviewed it properly until now :)

First of all, the classic Chanel packaging is absolutely gorgeous! Black, sleek and elegant, with a Chanel logo on the front. I think that every girl needs at least one Chanel compact and lipstick in her makeup bag. Do you agree? :)

 Inside the classic compact, there is a big mirror, a round baked blush and a small brush. Most tiny brushes are useless, but I really like this one. It isn't super soft, but it gets the job done and I always use it on the go. It is also fab for contouring and highlighting. 

The shade I own is called Reflex (number 82) and it is a slightly shimmery peachy colour, with no visible glitter particles. It is beautiful! It adds a flattering peachy/coral flush to my cheeks, with a glowy, radiant finish. The formula is easy to apply and blend, nicely pigmented and long lasting. Apparently, round Chanel blushers are very similar to the Bourjois Little Round Pots, but... I find the Chanel one much softer and easier to work with. Let me know what you think, if you have tried both.



Overall, I am totally in love with this beautiful blush and I can't recommend it enough. The packaging, the formula, the shade. Everything about it is just perfect and it is my all time favourite blush.

Have you tried any Chanel blushers?
