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?

  8. It's a great coral/peachy shade, a must-have imo :). And I agree with you, I find Bourjois blushers a lot drier and harder to work with. My Chanel blush collection is slowly getting bigger, they do great blushers!
